I Casali di Montecchio
Country house O
This is one of the five detached, Tuscan-stone, cherrywood-beamed family houses that are scattered around the estate.
It consists of a large living room, a kitchen-dining room, three substantial bedrooms, two bathrooms and two loft-closets – a total floor-space of 110 sq m.
The private enclosed garden has breathtaking views across to Cortona and the mountains behind it and its approximately 1,100 square metres is studded with fig, olive, pear and pomegranate trees.
The house has full central heating and hot water, as well as a terrestrial and satellite television system.
On the extensive estate lies a beautiful shared 20 by 8 metre swimming pool, fully equipped and serviced. A beautiful stone barbeque is tucked into the one corner of the estate, overlooking the sunflower fields and the estate’s trees and tracks which are suited for walks and jogging.
The external and interior restoration of the buildings was carried out lovingly totally in accord with the local Tuscan building tradition and using traditional materials. Great attention was paid to the preservation of original features, using only recycled materials and traditional construction techniques.
The estate is managed by the owners through an administrator and the service includes the maintenance of all green areas, swimming pool, house water supplies and automatic watering of lawns. It also includes the management and maintenance of facilities, which is also provided to the individual homes on request.
The owners are families of different nationalities, ranging from UK and European to American and Canadian.
