SP28, 5, 52044 Fratta-santa Caterina Arezzo, Italy
This recently renovated country villa has been converted into seven, fully-self-contained apartments of 1 and 2 bedrooms. Maintaining a typical Tuscan architecture but with modern fittings the villa has been thought out for a holiday rental business. Total of 10 bedrooms with 7 bathrooms.
Each apartment has an open plan, with kitchen and lounge area in a larger room, and bedrooms and bathroom separated from the living area. All apartments have air conditioning, winter heating and Wi-Fi.
These country apartments are located amidst the typical rural Tuscan landscape with sunflowers during the late summer, poppies and rolling hills. However, since it is nestled in a small medieval village in the valley below the Etruscan town of Cortona, it is minutes away from all the services and fun you may require.
The area is highly sought for tourism given that from here you have easy access to historic sights in Tuscany, Umbria, Rome and Lazio. Ten 10 kilometers in any direction there is a wealth of castles, palaces, churches and vineyards to be explored.
Specifically this Tuscan property has four apartments that sleep two people, two more of them can accommodate two to four guests and the seventh apartment sleeps three persons.
Three of the apartments which are fully on the ground floor are suitable for people with restricted mobility. Also in the ground floor there is a large common lounge / reception room that connects with the outdoor dining.
There is a project by which the villa could easily be converted back into a one large family home or alternatively, for clients looking to live in Tuscany and manage apartments to provide holiday letting income, the property can also be easily converted to provide a large two bedroom apartment as permanent living accommodation, leaving four apartments for holiday rentals.
The villa is surrounded by a fully fenced garden, with a pool of 12 meters by 6 meters, and a barbeque area with tables and pergola. From the terrace and the outdoor lounging areas once can enjoy a spectacular view of the Tuscan hills, and the lights of Cortona at night-time.
The neighboring gardens are particularly beautiful in spring and early summer, with color and scent from the many rose bushes, jasmine and lavender.
