Le Volpaie is a 180 sqm splendid stone-built country house recently restored, excellently refined (hand-made terracotta floors and beamed ceilings) and furnished by the owners with taste and elegance.


the house is built on two levels. On the ground floor there are a large lobby, lounge, dining room, well equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower and tub, twin bedroom. An internal staircase leading up to the first floor with a livingroom/study with additional single bed, double bedroom, twin bedroom, bathroom with shower. A laundry room has been created outside in the annex, provided with all necessary fittings.


1.500 sqm of garden, excellently maintained and embellished with flowering plants. Here you will find the swimming pool from where you have a wonderful view on the landscape of the Cortona hills.

Stunning getaway villa in the Cortona hillside!

  • 5 of 5

Stunning beauty from the minute you drive up the private driveway. Gorgeous villa set way up in privacy, with stunning views over Tuscany and out to the wine country.

Our caretaker was fantastic and helping us with every need - suggestions to Cortona and local restaurants, help with the rental car and directions and much more. The location is so close to the Terontola train station, we took a day trip to Florence until 7pm one day.

The villa was a perfect size for a couple, with plenty of room for another to join as well as 2 small children. Cooked dinner at home 2 nights and they have all the supplies and amenities one could require. The view is breathtaking over coffee to start the day, and a glass of wine at sunset. Location was key and easy to hop a drive all throughout Tuscany down to Perugia, Deruta, Orvieto, and back up to Siena. Local market and restaurants are fabulous and the friendliest people to get to know. Day trips and dinner in Cortona village were beautiful and so close. WE LOVE THIS VILLA and will definitely come back for a longer stay. The best thing of all is that Emma Villas steamed me to the right villa for the two of us and our specific needs. They will do the same for you!

The Location is an ideal starting point for who wish to have nice daily trip and sightseeing all over South Tuscany and Umbria as well: being the city of Cortona located not far either from the motorway A1 (exit Valdichiana) and from the freeway Siena-Perugia. Very well known sites like Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino, Perugia, Assisi and so on can be reached in less than hour driving as well as the hidden and maybe most beautiful corners of this 2 regions. Big cities like Florence or Rome can be easily reached also by train ( and we suggest to use it in high season to avoid traffic roads) being Cortona served by 2 train railways stations. Above all we are quite sure that you will fall in love with the ancient atmosphere of this beautiful town. All shops and facilities in the big village of Camucia, nice restaurants, bars, cafes, shops in Cortona. Supermarket are open also on Sunday morning.
