Le Celle has been a part of the glorious landscape in the area surrounding the historic town of Cortona for many centuries. Offering sweeping views over the unspoilt countryside to all those lucky enough to visit this idyllic hillside spot, it's the perfect place to get away from it all.

The wider area is dotted with farms and woodland; providing you with long walks and bike rides through the scenic surroundings. Nature lovers will also enjoy exploring the beautiful landscapes of nearby Lake Trasimeno Regional Park, with lots of wildlife and beaches to discover.

At the heart of this characterful villa is a tower dating back to the 14th-century. Along with the rest of the property, it underwent a recent and tasteful renovation to create spacious accommodation for up to eight people. But there's still a wealth of historic features to admire throughout Le Celle, such as wood beams and floors made with original clay and marble tiles.

Most of the four delightful bedrooms boast beautiful antique pieces and evocative art works; making you feel like you've stepped back in time as you retire for the night. Each has its own ensuite bathroom, adding an additional touch of luxury. This is especially the case with the bathroom that's home to a freestanding bath tub for total relaxation.

Before you drift off into a peaceful night's sleep, spend cosy evenings in front of the antique fireplace with a book or chat on the sofa. The dining room is a grand space to enjoy meals.

Sitting within an established estate that belonged to one of the most prominent old families in Tuscany, it's no surprise that the grounds of Le Celle are simply stunning. After negotiating the extremely narrow road leading to the property, you will find wide areas of lush lawn home to ancient stone walls and terraces, with lemon trees and other traditional Italian flora creating a dreamy atmosphere.

Pass lazy afternoons in the swimming pool, resting on a pool-side lounger or strolling around the gardens. There are several al fresco dining areas to choose from. The main one offers plenty of shade as you take in some of the very best views.

The nearest town of Cortona is full of amenities and shops, with many selling charming homemade items and wine from the nearby vineyards of Montepulciano.

Great for longer days out are the cities of Perugia and Città di Castello, with both being less than an hour's drive away. Perugia is famous for its chocolate, with a factory that you can take a tour around and try some chocolate for yourself. Soak up centuries of history and art in the city of Città di Castello as you walk around its churches and galleries.

Around 15 minutes away by car is the historic town of Cortona (5km). It's where to go to stock up on groceries, as well as enjoy drinks and meals in its great choice of bars and restaurants. Other amenities include a pharmacy and a bank. Cortona is well-known for its shops that sell handmade items and also the famous vino nobile red wine that's produced at the vineyards in and around Montepulciano (33km).

Cortona boasts a wealth of historic, and even ancient, sites of interest. Admire Renaissance-era buildings, such as Palazzo del Popolo and the cathedral. Also explore the Etruscan Academy Museum and Archaeological Park with its 11 ancient sites. Highlights include the remains of Roman roads, city fortifications and Etruscan tombs.

The nearby city of Arezzo (36km) is full of history and stunning buildings. Must-visits include the cathedral and the Basilica di San Francesco. Other cultural highlights are the cities of Umbertide (40km) with its medieval fortress, and Città di Castello (52km). The latter is an art lover's paradise. Marvel at 15th-century frescoes created by famous Italian Renaissance painters in the Church of San Domenico, then visit Palazzo Vitelli alla Cannoniera to stroll around the Municipal Art Gallery (Pinacoteca) and discover paintings by Lorenzetti and Raphael.

Perugia (50km) is famous for its chocolate, and you can take a tour around the factory located just outside the city. You'll learn all about the chocolate-making process and even get to sample some of the sweet stuff. In the heart of the city itself are many medieval and Renaissance structures, such as the well-known Fontaine Maggiore; a marble fountain carved with zodiac signs and biblical scenes.

  • Great Villa

    on 28/09/2023

    Great Villa and wonderful host, Betty, who couldn’t have been more helpful and charming.

  • Do not hesitate to book this villa

    Created on 15/08/2019

    Where do I start to review this amazing villa?! I spent a long time choosing a villa and I am so glad I picked this one! I wanted stunning views, peace and quiet and my husband requested to be near a small village for a restaurant and my 3 girls wanted a lovely big pool and WiFi! I am happy to say that everyone got their wishes! We stayed for 3 weeks here and the villa is beautiful with interesting history behind it. It has a modern but rustic Tuscan style which we loved. It was spotlessly clean and they had stocked the fridge up for us arriving as well as leaving a large welcome basket with goodies as well. It is a very peaceful relaxing place to stay and we were all sad to leave! Do not hesitate to book this villa, you will not be disappointed and we can't wait to come back another time!

  • Right out of a classic movie

    Created on 12/07/2019

    Our friends (repeat visitors) strongly recommended this Villa for our 25th Wedding Anniversary celebration and we are very happy that they did. The Villa is right out of a classic movie. The scenic countryside location is within a 10 minutes drive distance to Cortona town. Grounds and pool are kept immaculate. I wish you could come back every year!

  • An unbelievable 5 star property

    Created on 05/08/2018

    This Villa is truly a wonderful holiday experience. An unbelievable 5 star property with every single thing catered for. A rural tranquil place to escape from it all but well located. The beautiful town of Cortona is only 15 minutes drive. We decided to have breakfast every day and this was simply amazing. Gabriele was the best chef ever. Thank you!
