Entire Villa with 6 bedrooms and 5½ bathrooms in the heart of Cortona countryside, perfect for family reunion and group of friends looking for a quiet and beautiful stay.
We're on the Tuscany-Umbria border only 15min from Cortona and 40min from Lake Trasimeno. Surrounded by nature, Le Volpaie is set a third of the way up the hill below a refreshing forest. We have over a hundred acres in which you can roam in complete privacy and safety. With parking on site, swimming pool and WiFi.

The space
Our home is located 6 miles outside of Cortona, on the Tuscan/Umbrian border, near Lake

The house is called "Le Volpaie" and it dates back to the 1700s. It was originally a farmhouse. It is set a third of the way up the hill, below a forest and we have over a hundred acres in which you can roam. It is very private as it is the last house up the hill.
Several artists, writers and painters stayed with us at "Le Volpaie" as the area of Cortona is noted for being an artistic destination.

The house is made up of 2 separate units:
- the Main House with 3 upstairs bedrooms (a single, a twin and a double room)and 2 bathrooms plus a ground floor ensuite twin bedroom;
- the Guest House (Casa dei Nonni, Grandparents' House) has 2 bedrooms (a double and a twin) and 2 bathrooms.
NB. When you book "Le Volpaie" you get both units. Both the houses have fully equipped kitchens, large living rooms and dining rooms. The Main House has a beautiful portico with a covered eating space, too.

Large 12m swimming pool with pool house, overlooking splendid views of Cortona.
There is complete privacy and no light pollution so that star gazing is a wonderful past time.

Where you’ll be

La Dogana, Toscana, Italy

"Le Volpaie" is in the heart of Cortona countryside. Surrounded by Nature, it is a quiet place to have a base while you're travelling around Tuscany. The neighbourhood, Piazzano, technically is a fraction of Tuoro sul Trasimeno (Umbria) but we live our daily life together with the people of Montanare, Cortona. It is a beautiful area, rich in Nature and wild life. Lots of expats now live here, mainly English speaking. You will be surprised by the wonderful memory you and your family and friends will have at Le Vopaie!

I'm on AirBnb to offer travellers like you the opportunity to stay in my family home in Cortona, Tuscany which we have enjoyed since 1970. My father, a Swiss/American brought it back from a ruin and put much love and care in rebuilding and restoring the main house during the 1970s. We spent all of our childhood holidays there and you can still find our toys and children's books stashed carefully in the living room. It is a magical place for us with fun memories of many friends and family gatherings in the garden overlooking the view of Cortona, and always enjoying good food and wine and startling night skies. We hope you take away similar memories if you holiday in our house. All the best Laura
