Santa Maria cottage is set out on 2 floors and has a garden with private pool.  There are beautiful panoramic views over the valley. Although the cottage sits in a country location it is only 400m to Cortona town centre, which has numerous bars, restaurants, shops etc.
Cortona has become increasingly popular in recent years thanks to the book "Under the Tuscan Sun" by Frances Mayes and the film with the same title based loosely on the book. Villa Santa Maria is close to (the real) Villa Bramasole and we also represent the Villa used in part of the film as Villa Bramasole, which has now been renovated and is available for rent - Villa Sole




There is an open plan lounge with fireplace, kitchen corner and dining area. Also on the ground floor is a double bedroom and bathroom with shower. There are twin beds on a mezzanine floor overlooking the lounge (low ceiling, best suited to teenagers).

  • Open plan living room/kitchen/dining area

The pool is adjacent to the villa and set amongst olive trees. It enjoys panoramic views over the countryside and the valley. The pool (4x8mts) has Roman steps in  and a seating area. There is also a covered gazebo close to the cottage for outdoor dining.
