Il Fitto is located near one of the most enchanting places of all Tuscany, Cortona, one of the oldest Etruscan towns in the region, perched on a hilltop 600m above sea level and dominating the Val di Chiana. It enjoys a secluded position, on a hill with splendid views over the rolling landscapes that characterise the area and the skylines of the little borghi that dot the surroundings. The structure stands within an old renovated farm estate, composed of a main building and an annex, furnished in classic Tuscan style and with air-conditioned bedrooms. The house is protected by a beautifully well-kept park and is guarded by a garrison of olive trees and by the vineyard that frames the large exclusive swimming pool. The estate, which extends for more than fifteen hectares cultivated with olives and vines, produces an exceptional extra virgin olive oil and a prestigious nectar in the varieties Syrah, Sangiovese and Vin Santo DOC Cortona, which the owners will be happy for you to taste in the cellar adjacent to the house. Equidistant from Cortona and the famous borgo of Montepulciano, the location of Podere Il Fitto will allow you to combine visits to the numerous art cities and the beautiful historic borghi of Tuscany and the neighbouring region of Umbria with restorative stops at the countless spa establishments in the immediate surroundings (Montepulciano, Rapolano and Chianciano Terme), which represent the point of excellence of this part of Tuscany.
