Beautiful farmhouse with swimming pool a short distance from Cortona, Tuscany.
A lovely restored Italian farmhouse close to Cortona, Tuscany, it is situated in a pretty corner of Umbria and a couple of kilometres to the lively village of Pergo. The stone farmhouse is perfect for full-time living, holidays, or rentals. The accommodation is laid out over two floors. On the ground floor is a large kitchen/dining room, a study with a wood-burning stove, and a bedroom with air-conditioning and en suite bathroom. Upstairs there is a large sitting room with beautiful views, an old working fireplace, high ceilings and terracotta floor, together with the second bedroom (also with air conditioning) and a family bathroom. There is a double door leading from the sitting room to a small terrace and down some old stone steps to the garden. There is a covered pergola at the front of the house, giving perfect shade even in the hottest weather. Just below the house is the swimming pool, surrounded by a grassy area, hedging and olive trees and with a vine-covered pergola to sit under.
The nearby village of Pergo has two bars, one with children's playground, a pizzeria and a supermarket, while Cortona is less than 10 minutes drive away.
