Set in the typical Tuscan countryside of the Val di Chiana near Cortona and Arezzo, with splendid views of the hills of Cortona and just a few minutes from this famous medieval town, is Villa Ronzano, which takes its name from a nearby village. The charm of this rural Tuscan house relives in the careful recovery of bricks and exposed stone, maintained in their original state with the typical loggia and external staircase. The interior has been refurbished to guarantee maximum comfort, the old wooden ceiling beams have been pickled, the arches and the stone walls painted white on the ground floor where the stables originally were, the beautiful floors in wood and terracotta, the doors and windows and the tastefully chosen handcrafted furnishings blend harmoniously with shabby-inspired details and accessories; the intimate bedrooms, each with a modern and functional bathroom, and the brightly-lit veranda with large windows that houses the wellness area with sauna, emotional shower and large whirlpool tub where the swishing water and surrounding nature exert a relaxing effect on the body and mind, make this home a magical and unique place to spend an unforgettable holiday. The lush level garden extends around the house with large areas of green lawn skilfully embellished by flowering bushes and olive trees and completed by two gazebos with outdoor dining area and seating area and a beautiful, panoramic swimming pool. Ronzano is the ideal place to lose yourself in an environment of total relaxation but which, at the same time, allows you, thanks to the proximity of major road and rail links, to quickly reach the renowned art towns of Tuscany and Umbria such as Siena, Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi, the picturesque borghi of Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano and Castiglione del Lago and relaxing spa resorts. Services and shops for basic needs are just 5 minutes away by car.
