I Mandorli is a typical Tuscan stone farmhouse, located a few kilometres from Cortona, a charming little town in the heart of Tuscany. The property is part of a farm estate of about 6 hectares where the owners produce olive oil and wine which they share with their guests and friends. The house was renovated in 2003 by the current owners when they moved from the city to the beautiful Tuscan countryside, maintaining unaltered the characteristics of this type of house, such as wooden-beamed ceilings and terracotta floors. The property is set in a very interesting location due to its proximity to tourist centres such as Montepulciano, Pienza and Lake Trasimeno and to art cities like Siena, Perugia and Florence which can be reached in a short time thanks to efficient road and rail links. Please note: In the property lives the caretaker who see to, with discretion, the maintenance of the pool; anyway to the guests, during their stay, is guaranteed full privacy and full enjoyment of the property.
