KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
With views that extend from Cortona right across to Montepulciano, the 18th century farmhouse aptly named Casa Bella Vista "beautiful views" is located down a quiet country lane on the eastern border of Tuscany and Umbria, close to the historic art town of Cortona.
Casa Bellavista's history can be traced back to Roman times through an era as a tabacco and olive farm in the 18th century to more recent times when it was used for raising Chianina cattle. Following this, the property underwent an extensive renovation in the 1970's and from this came a fabulous 'home' that benefits from modern amenities whilst retaining the character and charm from the original buildings.
The farmhouse is divided into two separate houses with spacious and comfortable rooms offered on a bed and breakfast basis - lunches and evening meals are available on request and by agreement with the owner. In the main farmhouse are three of the double bedrooms, this house is also where guests have use of two sitting rooms, a dining room and the furnished terrace with rose covered loggia. The smaller house is where the owner lives and this has one double bedroom available on the ground floor. Breakfast is served either in the dining room or, in the warmer months, on the terrace of the main farmhouse.
There are plenty of good hiking and cycling opportunities in the area, the roads round here are quiet and the countryside breath-taking. Bikes are available for guests to use and there is also the possibility to hire scooters. There are plenty of books and tourist information available in the house.
