Villa di Orlando house to rent in Tuscany is one of four houses situated on a large wine and olive oil producing estate close to the picturesque walled hilltop town of Cortona. Founded by the Etruscans, Cortona was a major seat of power during medieval times. It cobblestone streets lead to the Medici fortress and the Santuario di Santa Margherita, its highest church, from where there are magnificent views over the countryside. Cortona hosts the Umbria Jazz Festival in July and a large antique furniture market in August and September. More recently, it has become known as the setting for Frances Mayes’ book, ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’, and the author’s house can be seen from our property. Although 8 kilometres away by car, guests can choose to enjoy a scenic 2 kilometre walk to the centre of Cortona.
Villa di Orlando is situated on a hillside, and the other three villas (Villa di Nello Piccolo Orlando and Villa di Liliana) are in completely different areas, making each property very private, yet also suitable for larger groups, or several families wanting to travel together. Each of the houses to rent also has its own private garden and swimming pool, and all enjoy spectacular views over the countryside of Tuscany. The pool at Casa di Orlando (8 x 4m) is situated on a lower level from the house in a beautiful position with fantastic views. The surrounding garden is planted with olive trees and has a pergola covered dining area . There is a further covered outdoor dining area with barbecue to one side of the house.
The house is on three floors with a living room on both the ground and first floors. The rooms have been very tastefully decorated and furnished, yet retaining the original features of tiled floors, beamed ceilings, stone staircase and fireplaces. The bathrooms are particularly attractive with mosaic or stone basins and good quality fittings.
