Set in the Tuscan hills between Cortona and Mercatale, the exquisite Villa Sartino is the ideal retreat for those wishing to enjoy idyllic and peaceful surroundings in extreme comfort.

Designed and renovated by a renowned UK interior designer, Villa Sartino exudes sophistication and tranquillity. The villa enjoys lots of space both internally and externally. Large showers, wood beams, oak ceilings and stone doorways all assist in combining to create a unique, luxurious getaway.

The spacious kitchen/dining room, provides the latest equipment in elegant surroundings. Through two ancient Roman capitols you leave the kitchen and enter the large hall and from there, the double doors open onto an exquisite arched loggia. The huge table of reclaimed oak is a wonderful place to enjoy lunch and look down on the olive groves and the infinity pool below.

Each bedroom and bathroom is dedicated to comfort without losing any of the integral charm of this beautiful house. The bathrooms are characterized by the magnificent free standing baths, large walk-in showers, antique marble baths and the bedrooms by the four poster beds and antique furniture. The drawing room, a large and extremely spacious room, is furnished with a graceful and understated style. The sofas are deep and comfortable and the supremely beautiful artifacts and paintings only add to the atmosphere. The study is charming and more intimate, and the upstairs galleried sitting room with sofas is another beautiful space to retreat from the world. From two of the first floor terraces you can see castles on the distant hilltops, and it is the ideal place to sip a bellini and drink in the atmosphere.

It is difficult not to be overwhelmed by the setting and the stunning far-reaching views to the distant hilltop villages and castles. The pool is set amongst the olive trees, sculpted into the grounds, with an infinity edge that disappears into the spectacular backdrop. Surrounded by over 70 acres of its own land, all fenced to maintain the safety of the natural environment and the protection of the animals that live within the woods, it provides the perfect backdrop for the truly idyllic holiday.

Good news! This property is available as a Vill’otel

Yey! Wait… what is that?
It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel.

Set in the Tuscan hills between Cortona and Mercatale, the exquisite Villa Sartino is the ideal retreat for those wishing to enjoy idyllic and peaceful surroundings in extreme comfort. Set within its own meadows and olive groves, a private lake and numerous woodland walks, it is still within easy reach of many of the major Tuscan and Umbrian towns.

Niccone Valley

The picturesque Niccone Valley is the perfect, central point from which to explore the hill towns of both Umbria and Tuscany. Located roughly midway between Rome and Florence, just north of Lake Trasimeno, it’s an easy drive to the historic cities of Cortona, Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi, Deruta, Montefalco, Spoleto, Spello, Todi, Montepulciano, Pienza, Siena, Umbertide, Città di Castello, Sansepolcro and others.

The Niccone Valley is named for the stream that flows through it, spilling into the Tiber River at its eastern terminus near Umbertide. Part of the valley is in Umbria and part is in Tuscany; at either end are the Umbrian towns of Lisciano Niccone and plain Niccone, and a small section from Mercatale to La Mita is in Tuscany. A country road, route 416, runs through the valley, roughly parallel to the stream.

The valley was a much travelled route throughout Italy’s history, and evidence of its strategic position can be seen in the castles that dot the hilltops, facing off from both sides across the border. Today the fertile plain is devoted to crops—winter wheat, sunflowers, maize, tobacco, alfalfa and vegetables. There are vineyards and silvery olive trees on the slopes and myriad shades of green in the surrounding forested hills. Farmers still raise animals and maintain kitchen gardens for their own needs, and the towns along the road supply what must be bought.
