Sleeps: 18 + 4. Bedrooms: 9. Bathrooms: 10


RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Nonno Fernando is a farmhouse built entirely in stone whose origins date roughly back to the beginning of the 19th century. In the recent renovation the present owners have preserved the original layout of the various rooms. Salvage materials have been used for the roofs and floors, covered with Tuscan terracotta; the exposed ceiling beams in chestnut wood have been kept. The house is situated in the luxuriant Tuscan countryside, just a few minutes from the attractive medieval town of Cortona, clinging to the steep hillside overlooking the Val di Chiana and Lake Trasimeno. Its convenient position, well connected to major roads and well served by the railways, makes it easy to organize excursions to the numerous villages in the vicinity and to visit the main towns of Umbria and Tuscany. All this, enriched by the numerous, high quality wine and food proposals of Tuscan culinary tradition, with the unmistakable simple but intense flavours of the typical dishes.


The house has two floors and includes the main house with the communal areas and five annexes. The main entrance leads into the central structure with a large living room, dining room with fireplace and fully equipped kitchen, all connected by archways, and a toilet. From the ground floor, two staircases situated, respectively, to the left and right of the main entrance lead up to the annexes on the first floor. The first annex is composed of a twin bedroom and a bathroom with shower, a triple bedroom and a double bedroom, both with ensuite bathroom with shower. On the same level, and opposite the entrance to the first annex, is the second annex composed of a twin bedroom and a double bedroom, both with ensuite bathroom with shower. A spiral staircase leads up to the loft with single divan-bed and bathroom with shower. The other staircase leads to the third annex composed of a study with double divan-bed, a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower. The last two annexes are reached from the back of the house, one on the left and one on the right. One annex Is composed of a double bedroom and a twin bedroom (with direct outside access as well), both with ensuite bathroom with shower. The last annex is composed of a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower. Each single annex has a small sitting room and kitchenette.


The park around the house extends for a total of 18 hectares. Beds with colourful flowers and lavender bushes adorn the garden with its well-kept lawn of about 2.5 square metres. Beside the pool a rose garden of yellow roses frames the solarium area. The estate contains typical Tuscan trees such as olives and elms as well as a vast orchard of walnuts, figs and pomegranates at the disposal of guests. The large, well-kept areas induce guests to spend time outdoors, taking their meals under the large umbrellas in the dining area outside the kitchen, where a brickwork barbecue is situated, or else playing ping pong in the shade of a gazebo or kicking a ball about. They can also relax under one of the gazebos placed in various points of the garden and simply admire the wonderful view of the hill of Cortona before them.

Swimming Pool

The swimming pool is about 70 metres from the house and is situated on the same level. It is rectangular in shape and measures 12 x 6 m with a depth varying from 1.20 m to 1.50 m and has an outdoor cold-water shower. Roman steps composed of 4 large steps lead into the water. The pool is lined with PVC and has chlorine purification and underwater lighting. The border and area around the pool is paved with Tuscan terracotta for 1.5 m whilst the solarium area, provided with sunbeds, chairs, armchairs and umbrellas, occupies the surrounding, well-kept lawn. There are two gazebos in the pool area, close to each other, furnished with armchairs and coffee tables, ideal for relaxing, on one’s own or in company, with a good glass of wine. The pool is open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday in October.
