With frescoes, beamed ceilings, two beautiful gardens and a panoramic view, Casa Ombretta is a unique property at the heart of Cortona. An ideal base for groups exploring Tuscany and central Italy, with plenty of bedrooms and spaces where to relax.
Casa Ombretta is split on 3 level and comes with a private garden of around 500 sqm (entirely fenced).
Tastefully furnished with decor in typical Tuscan style and antiques, it is ones of Cortona’s oldest houses and has been expertly restored just a few years ago.
The ground-floor entrance welcomes guests into a foyer with an original fireplace from the 1300s.
An internal staircase leads to the first floor, where an open-plan space includes the spacious living room, the dining room and a fully-equipped kitchen. Still on this floor, a beautiful double bedroom with a canopy bed, a bathroom with a Jacuzzi and a lounge room with a sofa where to relax. Completing this floor, the panoramic terrace with access to the garden.
Another internal staircase leads you to the second floor, where two double bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom with a hydro-massage shower cabin, can be found. Completing this floor, a living room filled with books you can read whilst on vacation, another great spot where to relax.
Casa Ombretta has 2 gardens, a rarity in Cortona, making this property even more unique. The front garden comes with outdoor furniture for al fresco dinners. The lush vegetation here makes the garden cooler in the summer heat. The rear garden comes with deckchairs for sunbathing but offers plenty of shade too, thanks to the large plants and trees.
Wi-fi, private garden, heating, washing machine, dishwasher, iron, American-style coffee machine, Moka pot, oven, toaster, hairdryer, LCD TV. Cot and highchair upon request.
