Two romantic two-person apartments in a 19th century farmhouse set in beautiful surroundings amongst the green hills of Tuscany, only miles from the ancient town of Cortona. Farmhouse “La Cedrina” was named after a pretty, sweet-smelling herb locally known as “Cedrina” (Italian for “lemon verbena”) growing abundantly all over the farm; for over two centuries this herb has been used by local farmers to make liquors and is also used for pharmaceutical and herbal preparations.
This ancient farmhouse is listed as being of particular historic and architectural interest and as such subject to particular architectural and planning restrictions. The farmhouse opens onto a large garden full of colourful flowers and high trees, an ideal spot to sit back and relax. The property is set amidst over 8 acres of olive groves where guests will be able to take relaxing walks under the warm Tuscan sun, taking in magnificent views of the town of Cortona against the stunning background of the Valdichiana and mounts Cetona and Amiata. Farmhouse “La Cedrina” (accessed through a well-maintained road) is strategically located for easy and convenient visits to the best tourist destinations of Tuscany and Umbria. Half an hour in the car will take you to Siena, Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi; a stress-free drive with no hassle for parking. Both Florence and Rome can be easily reached by train (respectively one hour and one hour and a half away).
The farmhouse (spreading over 2000 square feet) consists of a main building (the home of the owners that are available for any need or question) and two finely renovated and furnished, independent two-person apartments. The property is fenced all around; a private parking area and an automatic gate ensure that guests are provided with top privacy and security.
