A private mean of transport is needed to reach the house.

Cortona, with its medieval centre and etruscan sites, is obviously the unmissable destination, but there are a lot of other interesting towns at a short distance: Castiglion Fiorentino (½ hour drive), Arezzo (1 hour drive) going north.
Perugia (50 min. drive) and Assisi (1 hour 15 min. drive), are two unmissable places if you want to see the region of Umbria.
While Siena (1 hour 15 min. drive), Montepulciano (50 min. drive), Pienza (1 hour drive), San Gimignano (1 hour 30 min. drive) and San Quirico D'orcia (1 hour 15 min. drive) will give you the sights of the Tuscany you've always imagined.

Tuscany's capital, Florence, is well connected through A1 motorway (1 hour 30 min. drive), and it is also the on the way to Pisa and Lucca.
