Description

A dreamy and enchanting home set within private grounds, with glorious infinity pool, stunning views and magical atmosphere, guests can be guaranteed to fall in love with Bosco dei Tartufi. Set high in the wooded hills above the historical town of Cortona, this restored and ancient farmhouse provides a great location for those who wish to enjoy peaceful, unspoilt, yet interesting surroundings in great comfort. As one drives down to the property you cannot help feeling a sense of anticipation: turning into a gloriously open space surrounded by trees and ultimately your holiday home, it is difficult not to be overwhelmed by the setting and the stunning, far reaching views to the distant mountains. Surrounded by 62 hectares of its own land, there is a glorious walk through the woodland to one of the most spectacular views in Tuscany overlooking Lake Trasimeno. From the infinity swimming pool, sculpted into the grounds and set into the side of the hill, one can enjoy impressive panoramic views and the poolside gazebo, with its cushions and relaxed Moroccan feel, is a dream spot for relaxing in the midday sun with a good book and a glass of chilled vino. From here one can walk along the lavender lined pathway to the pergola covered dining terrace beside the house where long lazy al fresco meals can be enjoyed with delicious fresh ingredients from the local market. The interior designer owner of Bosco dei Tartufi has exquisitely and sensitively restored the house with both inside and alfresco living in mind. Whilst remaining sympathetic to its natural environment, Bosco dei Tartufi is a house imbued with a sophisticated yet comfortable ambience, and furnished throughout with beautiful, inviting sofas and armchairs, antiques, artefacts from around the world and all softened with warm rugs and cushions. The drawing room is smart and spacious, the study with fireplace intimate and cosy, bedrooms spoiling and comfortable, bathrooms characterised by their magnificent free standing old-fashioned bathtubs, two large walk-in showers and spectacular Tuscan stone sinks. The extremely well-equipped large kitchen/dining room acts as the social hub of the house and here guests will love gathering together to create another mouth watering Italian meal. With its two independent cottages within metres from the main house, it is perfect accommodation for family gatherings, or an adult group (most comfortable for a maximum of four couples) who may appreciate the opportunity for their own space. Bosci dei Tartufi is luxurious rustic chic and the kind of home one will simply fall in love with. A much loved home perfect for gatherings of family or friends, the villa is ideally situated just 3km from shops in Montenare, 15km from Cortona and 30km from water sports on Trasimeno. There are so many places to visit in the nearby environs and, being right on the Tuscan Umbrian border, guests will be spoilt for choice as to where to go.
