Villa Pietrenta

Villa Pietrenta

Tuscan countryside
up to 10 guests 5 bedrooms 4 bathrooms


Just below the hilltop town of Cortona and surrounded by lush vegetation, this east-facing villa is bright and filled with natural light throughout the day. A beautiful rural farmhouse, Casale Pietrenta used to belong to the current owner’s ‘nonni’ (his grandparents). It’s been recently renovated and the homeowner tried to keep the original features intact wherever possible, like the walls, door and window frames made in pietra serena, a traditional stone from Tuscany. Surrounding the villa, a terraced garden, dotted with beautiful olive trees, with patios and a swimming pool. One hectare of the estate is lined by a fence and the land is supervised by Biondino, a friendly Sardinian donkey!

This 250 sqm farmhouse comprises of two self-contained apartments. Both have a ground floor entrance. You can choose to rent the entire property or just one of the units.

Apartment Chiara (Unit 1) | Apartment Chiara can accommodate up to 4 people.
The entrance to this apartment opens onto the living room. Here one can find a stone fireplace, sofas and comfortable armchairs. An archway frames the fully-equipped kitchen which can easily accommodate 10 people. A bathroom with shower and a laundry room can also be found on this floor.
A wooden staircase in the living room leads to the first floor where there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom with shower.

Apartment Laura (Unit 2) | Apartment Laura can accommodate up to 6 people.
As you enter this apartment, you’ll be welcomed by a cozy living room with a fireplace, sofas and armchairs and an antique chest of drawers. A dining room, with a large table and straw chairs in different colors, is joined by a fully-equipped kitchen, an ideal space for the entire family to gather around the table and enjoy delicious homemade food.
A bathroom with shower is also on this floor. A wooden staircase in the living room leads to the first floor, where there are two double bedrooms, one twin bedroom (with two single beds) and another bathroom with shower.
