18th-century noble residence restored into a charming relais with pool and park for sale in Cortona, Tuscany. Strategically located just 3 km from the historic center of Cortona and a short distance from the major historical and eno-gastronomic routes, on the border between Tuscany and Umbria, just 20 minutes from Lake Trasimeno and half an hour from Siena, Montepulciano and Val d'Orcia. Set in 15 acres of private grounds, nestled in a park of cypresses, oaks and ancient mature trees with an unparalleled view of the town of Cortona dominating the horizon, Villa La Querce was built in 18th-century as the summer residence of a noble Cortona family. Thanks to a careful restoration today it is a charming residence boasting its original facades embellished with coats of arms and stone details, its interiors with high ceilings and old exposed wooden beams, all floors paved with large “serena” stones or with handmade terracotta tiles, stone and brick walls, combining its timeless grandeur with modern comforts. Villa La Querce opens its doors into a lobby, a well-appointed reception and dining rooms on the ground floor, perfect for entertaining, featuring impressive decorative elements, seventeenth-century altars, fireplaces, along with a fully fitted professional kitchen and three comfortable double bedrooms with ensuite and direct access to the garden. The upper floors house an additional ten bedrooms and suites. All are elegantly furnished in 18th-century style and equipped with satellite television, mini-bars, safes, and spacious bathrooms with whirlpool tubs or whirlpool shower stalls. Outside, a former stone barn has been restored with two additional suites, a second hut houses an office/reception and an old wood-burning oven. Surrounded by centuries-old oaks, an olive grove and a small vineyard, the swimming pool finds its perfect location along with a sundeck paved in handmade terracotta tiles. In front of the villa an additional building houses a staff area and technical rooms on the ground floor, while the basement is dedicated to a large garage with an access ramp. Villa La Querce is now a charming relais hosting annually a loyal international clientele, perfect as a private residence, as in the old days, to live with family and friends.
