Luxury Villa, Cortona area, great lake Views & infinity Pool.



Updated: 23-Oct-2016
Luxury Villa with Pool Tuscany sleeps till 20-22 people.

This recently restored luxury villa is located on the Tuscan/Umbrian border overlooking to one side, the Tuscan hills towards Cortona and to the other side Lake Trasimeno.

A truly stunning lake view awaits you from the infinity pool area of this property. (13*8)

Ideal family special occasions and Wedding. MORE INFO IN PERSONAL WEB SITe

Cortona area: The area of Tuscany lying east of Siena and hugging the border with Umbria is a treasure trove of natural beauties and cultural delights, especially the hills around Cortona and the Lake Trasimeno which provide a splendid backdrop for the villa. Cortona itself is a wonderful place to while away the time, with its shops and gardens, theatre, market, and many tiny squares, which bustle with activity throughout the warmer months. Other charming towns within a short drive include Cetona, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Siena, Daytrips in Umbria might include Assisi and Perugia, and the tiny village of Deruta, famous for its pottery. Visits to nearby vineyards are a treat, and golf, windsurfing, sailing, skydiving, balloon rides, hiking and biking are all possible in the immediate vicinity. Wine tours are organized on request.

The property consists in main villa with 10 bedrooms and a large annex with professional kitchen and a large dining/living area. Both properties face an internal courtyard and are 5 mt far. The villas are air conditioned. Please check all villa information in our personal web site Villa & Charme id 15526

this villa is beautiful is an understatement!!!

  • 5 of 5


I am VERY sorry it took this long to reply, but here is our feedback from our July 2015 stay ...

To describe this villa as beautiful is an understatement!!! Staying here was the perfect ‘trip of a lifetime’ vacation! All 16 of us were completely enchanted by the house (each bedroom different and lovely), the separate building with the spacious common area (great dining areas inside and outside, include a professional kitchen and several lovely sitting areas) … and the gorgeous and well kept grounds (lots of room to wander and relax, and a GREAT pool). Every one of us would highly recommend this to anyone who wants their Italian home base to be a glorious villa, with a breathtaking view of Lake Trasimeno, very conveniently located to many beautiful Umbrian and Tuscan towns and villages. The close-by town of Passignano was delightful, with many great restaurants … and we were lucky enough to be there in July, during the Paleo de Barche, which is a weeklong festival, including fireworks, open air markets, and various parades and concerts, with restaurants moving tables outside during various events. It was all such a wonderful experience!

Christina, the owner, was a joy to work with and was always close enough when we needed her and far enough to not feel intrusive. She was gracious and welcoming, and helped us with anything we needed help with, including pre-stocking the kitchen, setting up a multi-course welcome dinner for 16, and arranging a local wine tasting on short notice.

Not only would all 16 of us highly recommend a stay here (more than 5 stars!), each and every one of us would LOVE to come back again someday for another trip of a lifetime!

beautiful villa!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family enjoyed your beautiful villa. The bedrooms were very comfortable & had everything we needed. The main building was very comfortable with ample seating & we loved the big dining room table, which accommodated all of us. We managed to use the large table outside, which was amazing. The kitchen was well equipped & was more than enough for our needs. Everything was very clean & tidy. The view from the villa was spectacular, overlooking the lake & the pool was well used, especially by the children.

We enjoyed the 2 meals you & your staff cooked for us, especially the authentic Italian dishes. You did an amazing job. You were always available for all of our questions & helped us with any problems that needed to be sorted. Thank you Sabrina for being available to help us get to the villa.

I would highly recommend the villa to anyone who is travelling to Tuscany, such a beautiful part of Italy. We had a lot of fun exploring the hill towns & would certainly consider returning to Tuscany.

We rented this fantastic villa for a full week to be the setting for our daughter and soon to be son-in-law’s wedding. What a great decision that turned out to be for the 18 of us, ages 68 years to 5 months.

I could not have asked for a better experience. The family run villa has been gorgeously updated and offers both modern amenities and charm. The property is well-kept and gorgeously set amongst hills and lake.

The swimming pool, with its expansive views of the Trasimeno lake , was a crowd-pleaser.

The Villa is extremely well equipped and has a high end professional kitchen

The villa staff, went above and beyond to make sure our every need was met. Sabrina was a wedding planner/organizer extraordinaire and Cristina took us to the best florists, bakers and hairdressers to ensure we got exactly what we wanted. Every last detail, from the table setting to the food, was done to perfection. They arranged drivers to take us to an extraordinary wine tour.

We cannot say enough about the great hospitality we were given by these wonderful people .

We can’t recommend the Villa Verdana highly enough and want to thank Sabrina, Cristina, Andrea from the bottom of our hearts for making our stay and wedding at Villa Verdana the experience of a lifetime.

Our stay was extremely comfortable!!!

  • 5 of 5


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Charme/Villa la Verdana . Both the kitchen/dining/sitting area building and the bedroom building suited our needs perfectly. The pool was relaxing and refreshing. The cooking class for the younger guests was wonderful. Our stay was extremely comfortable, and we loved our vacation. Thank you for a memorable family reunion!

a trip with family memories

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at your Verdana villa was excellent in every respect!

We were 13 people from USA and France celebrating a retirement birthday/family reunion from August 24 to August 31 2013.

The accommodations, facilities and location were spectacular and ideal for our visit. The web site photographs are completely accurate and

accurately representative in this respect.

The villas location and it's easy proximity to multiple sites to visit (Cortona, Siena, Florence, Assisi, Vineyards etc.) enabled our group

stay very active and were always interesting and very enjoyable. It was also a nice surprise to find Passigiano so close by and that is

also a beautiful small town and location, with good restaurants, shops, art galleries and convenient rail access - which we used for our

Florence trip and for our French family members to arrive and depart. Plus the location is an enjoyable trip if driving from Rome/Airport.

The comfortable accommodations, the leisure activities at the villa and the meal services were fantastic - Cristina is really someone very

special - thank you for everything you did to make our stay so successful (especially your ability to "rearrange" things for us at short

notice) and also for the breakfasts, the celebration dinners and the excellent cooking classes, along with the music and entertainment

features and your genuine "friendship" !!

And don't forget the amazing sunsets of course.

We would enthusiastically recommend your services and this villa to any prospective guests as a a "Five Star" choice in all aspects.

A couple of minor lessons we learned which may assist future guests -

1. GPS is really essential (even if you don't always trust the fine detail and the grid references)

2. The provided directions should really emphasize the villa name given that this is the sign which confirms the direction when you climb

the hill for the first time .

Thank You for everything - a trip with family memories for a lifetime - Peter and Larry

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Rome at 200 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : lake shore at 3 Kilometres Nearest Train : Terontola at 7 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Valdichiana at 20 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : lake shore at 3 Kilometres Car: necessary

Enchantingly romantic and ideally located close to Cortona , making it easy for you to visit Tuscany, Siena, Florence the Montepulciano and Cortona area as well as Todi Assisi and Perugia. The vicinity to a well connected station like Terontola only 10 km makes easy dayli trip to Florence or Rome. This is the most tranquil of locations and there is more than adequate space for a party of 18-20 guests wishing to relax. Alternatively, for the more active, Lake Trasimeno with all its water sports is just down the road ( 3 km) and Perugia and Montepulciano are only half an hour away, where one can soak up some history and culture.
