Casa Luce is a beautiful independent house, in the oldest part of the city of Cortona, set among the old stone houses which are characteristic of the city, and among the few houses to have a beautiful natural luminosity from its windows, while at the same time offering a painting from the beautiful panorama. The restoration has just been complete with the transformation of the internal part of the house, while at the same time respecting the characteristics of a Tuscan house in the city centre, with its wooden beams and terracotta bricks on view. The modern furnishings are very light, providing Casa Luce with a warm and comfortable environment.
