Charming and cozy, Casa Marisa is the home of, you guessed it, Marisa, a lady who has lived here all her life. If you are looking for absolute authenticity in a real home, then this is the choice for you. This 70-sqm apartment is decorated with a welcoming touch throughout and just minutes away from the main piazza.
Casa Marisa is split into 2 levels. From the street-level entrance, there’s a staircase (10 steps) that leads to a large open-plan living area with a fully-equipped kitchen and dining room on one side and a comfortable sofa on the other. Here there are two windows, perfect for enjoying the beautiful views and unforgettable sunsets afforded by the house’s unique position.
The cozy bedroom comes with a wardrobe and window that beautifully frames the panorama. A bathroom with shower completes the apartment.
There is also a laundry room in the basement that can be accessed from outside the apartment.
Air conditioning is available in both the living room and the bedroom.
Please note that because of its location and architecture, the apartment isn’t suited to those with mobility difficulties.

Made famous by the movie ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’, Cortona is perched on a hill overlooking the Valdichiana valley.
