Very characteristic house inside the medieval walls of Cortona, near Porta Colonia.
The house, part of a former monastery, is made of materials recovered from the past (stones, doors, wood).
It has stone walls, and the furnishings are made with reclaimed beams. It is on two levels and the ground floor was the old workshop of the neighborhood. The original solid wood door is still visible.

The space
It is a very characteristic house but also with visible traces of a "peasant" past. We will warm it up in winter, before your arrival. In the summer it is very fresh instead. It is a house in the rock with a single wall exposed to the outside.

Other things to note
Remember that Cortona is an uphill town and the beauty ... is up high! Bring comfortable shoes with you.
It is not possible to park within the Cortona walls. You have to leave the car outside the walls, in the parking lots nearby.
You can reach the house entering Porta Colonia and walk a few seconds in via Dardano.

Location

Cortona, Toscana, Italy

The house is located a few meters from Porta Colonia, one of the entrance gates to Cortona. It is therefore situated at an intermediate point between the upper part and the lower part of the town. A few meters away, shops and a small supermarket.

Vivo a Roma, ho una figlia ventenne, un marito che ama viaggiare come me e quattro gatti che, al contrario, sono assai stanziali. La casa di questo annuncio è la mia casa del cuore. È stata ristrutturata nel pieno rispetto della storia delle sue mura.
