Unique Tuscan retreat in a meticulously restored 14th-century village with a trattoria and an outdoor pool
Step back in time at Cortona Village Heights, a meticulously restored Tuscan hill hamlet that dates to the 14th century. The 21 studios, and one- two- and three-bedroom apartments have all been seamlessly worked into the original buildings that line the old stone streets. Skilled local craftspeople have brought the old tiled roofs up to date and the rougher edges of the solid stone walls have been smoothed. The guestrooms and public spaces sport solid oak furniture, exposed beams and all sorts of period features. The hamlet sits close to the border with Umbria, but the traditional dishes served in the candlelit restaurant in the hamlet’s old guard house are unmistakably Tuscan. In spring and summer a 65-foot swimming pool tempts, while the year-round olive terraces provide scenic relaxation nooks. All accommodations feature modern conveniences, including kitchens from which to cook up a Tuscan feast; the on-site food store stocks local produce and regional wines.
In the Area
A network of eight walking trails break off from the hamlet and snake through the unspoilt local countryside. Mercatale (di Cortona) is a relaxed Italian village a 10-minute drive away, with banks, a few cafés, supermarkets and a brace of butchers selling quality meat (locals opt for the famous Chianina beef). The best place to eat is Mimmi, an excellent traditional trattoria. The picturesque Tuscan hill town of Cortona is just a 35-minute drive away with its old piazzas, family-run trattorias, wine bars and art galleries. The charms of Perugia and Florence are also within easy driving distance.
