PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Casale dei Girasoli stands on a hill surrounded by the splendid Tuscan countryside stretching from Cortona to Sinalunga and from Arezzo to Montepulciano. A location immersed in nature, ideal for those seeking a peaceful holiday. The pre-existing farmhouse, built at the end of the 17th century, was inhabited by a large family of peasants who cultivated the extensive lands around it which were very fertile and particularly suited to the cultivation of olives. The renovations have been carried out in full respect of the original structure. The same warm familial atmosphere permeates the house today; an atmosphere kept intact thanks to the preservation of typical elements such as the original bricks, the open face beams, the terracotta. The interior of this exclusive farmhouse has been conceived to satisfy every need but the real crowning glory of the villa is the presence of a wellness centre equipped with sauna, Turkish bath and whirlpool tub and of a well-stocked games room. Guests who choose this Tuscan house will have a very warm welcome and will live an unforgettable experience. The location and atmosphere of Casale dei Girasoli will be the ideal ingredients for serene and relaxing holidays immersed in the green Tuscan countryside. But at the same time this can become a strategic point for visiting the most beautiful cities of central Italy for history, culture, wine and food.


The property is composed of the main house and two annexes. The main house has three storeys, the third floor being constituted by the turret. From the main entrance you accede to the ground floor composed of three living rooms, and billiard room, dining room, large kitchen and TV and study room, two toilets and a bathroom with shower. Two staircases lead up to the first floor subdivided into two separate wings, separated on the inside. One of the two wings is composed of two floors (first floor and second floor); on the first floor is a large suite composed of a double bedroom with king size bed (with non-divisible beds), sitting room, study and a bathroom with whirlpool shower and a toilet; a staircase leads up to the second floor with a double bedroom (with non-divisible beds) with ensuite bathroom with tub. The other wing on the first floor is composed of a double bedroom with king size bed (with non-divisible beds), one with ensuite bathroom with shower and a double bedroom with external bathroom with tub, and a double bedroom with queen bed and pull-out bed with en suite bathroom with shower (adapt for young people). From the study on the ground floor stairs lead down to the basement in which there are the rooms for the staff (present in the structure only on request), and then, other few steps, lead down to the wellness centre, equipped with Turkish bath zone, the whirlpool tub area, sauna and a bathroom with shower. Outside, next to the main entrance, stairs lead down to a basement used as a games room equipped with pinball machines, tennis table, treadmill, tapis roulant, slot machine and table games. Just a few steps from the main house are two annexes both constituted by double bedroom (with non-divisible beds), bathroom with shower and kitchenette.


All around Casale dei Girasoli is a large garden bordered by typical cypresses with olive and fruit trees in the centre. Guests can spend many relaxing moments, recharging their batteries in the sauna and Turkish bath, swimming in the beautiful pool, playing ping pong or organizing a barbecue under the large, fully equipped, portico next to the kitchen. The large sweep of land surrounding it permits guests to enjoy quiet walks and mountain bike rides, immersed in the shimmer of the golden corn, surrounded by the yellow corollas of the sunflowers and the violet of the alfalfa. They can enjoy glorious sunsets, unique natural scenery and the bewitching view of Cortona.

Swimming Pool

Open from the last Saturday of April until the first Saturday of October, the pool affords a beautiful view of Cortona and the surrounding gentle hills. It is sited on the same level as the villa, only 7 metres away from it. Rectangular shaped, it measures 16 x 8 m with a depth varying from 1.20 to 2.20 m; access to the water is by large steps or ladder. It is lined in PVC and purification is by chlorine. The border is in sandstone. It is surrounded by a beautiful well-kept lawn containing the solarium area equipped with sunbeds, deckchairs, chairs and 2 large umbrellas. On one side is a large gazebo furnished with chairs and table, perfect for aperitifs at sunset. The pool has an outdoor hot water shower. An underground room reached by a stone staircase has a bathroom with shower and changing room.
