Casa di Dante is 15 minutes from Cortona, in a very quiet country road in a tiny hamlet. The house is private and detached and has stunning views of Cortona and the rolling Tuscan countryside. Casa di Dante has all the advantages of being a modern house, while respecting the Tuscan tradition of beamed ceilings, tiled floors and wraparound terrace. There is a large living room with open fireplace, which connects with a very large well equipped kitchen: these are the heart of the house and you will find them comfortable and welcoming. The 3 double bedrooms sleep six: two rooms have double beds, and the third has 2 single beds which can also be a double. There is a full bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and a bathroom with shower. Two of the bedrooms have direct access to the terrace – a nice touch. The garden is ideal for relaxing lunches or dinners and is well-supplied with garden furniture.

Holiday by the lake
Because of its excellent location, Casa di Dante is an ideal spot to explore not only Cortona, but also Florence, Siena, Assisi and Perugia. Not to mention the nearby wine-producing hill-towns of Tuscany like Montalcino and Montepulciano. Discover the beautiful Chianti wine region and the towered city of San Gimignano, tour a winery in an ancient castle or abbey, or take an Italian cooking class in Cortona. The nearby villages and towns which are lesser known offer a wealth of surprises like the magnificent medieval Castle of Gargonza in Monte San Savino, or the amazingly beautiful village of Lucignano, built in concentric circles, and hosting with its enormous walls some of the area’s best restaurants. Tour Lake Trasimeno, and its quaint villages. Above all, get to know and enjoy the wonderful and unique Cortona – so unforgettably shown in Under the Tuscan Sun. For those who enjoyed the book or the film, this is your chance to experience its magic in real life. Shop in the local open-air markets (there is one or more every day in the area), or enjoy eating out in the excellent local restaurants. There are swimming pools nearby. Or just relax in the garden.
Description of the surrounding area
The house is in a tiny village called Brolio, about 15 minutes from Cortona. There are no shops although the baker passes every morning to sell freshly-baked bread! However there is a supermarket 2 KM away, and there is a large number of really excellent supermarkets within easy range: in Cortona, Castiglion Fiorentino and Foiano. The nearest restaurants are 400 and 1.5 KM and a piazzera at 2 KM. The area has a large number of really excellent well-priced restaurants. Post office, Banks, pharmacies and swimming pools all at 6 KM. The famous horse-race in Siena, the Palio, is held on 2 July and 16 August. Many villages have local feasts, festivals, open-air concerts and other musical events including open-air operas in Cortona: please ask us for details. Throughout summer there are firework displays locally as part of some village celebration. And so on!
