Enjoy a touch of luxury at Casa Leopolda in Tuscany

Casa Leopolda is a truly remarkable villa situated in the heart of Tuscan countryside at its most beautiful. This spacious and elegant four-bedroom, three-bathroom country home can sleep eight guests in style and luxury.

Casa Leopolda is set within a small hamlet not far from the pleasant hilltop towns of Cortona and Castiglion Fiorentino. An emerald lawn surrounds this impressive home, backed by further verdant splendour of sprawling meadows and distant rolling hills.

Internally, the villa boasts a tasteful modern design, which combines contemporary colours and features with more traditional Provençal décor. French doors lead from the dining room onto the external shaded dining terrace, where a barbecue and pergola means guests can dine whilst looking across the incredibly beautiful countryside Tuscany is renowned.

Three of the property’s bedrooms are located on the ground floor and guests wanting their own degree of privacy will be able to find it in the first-floor bedroom.

If you can manage to leave this idyllic rural retreat, the nearby village of Fratta is definitely worthy of a visit. Fratta is just 3.5km from Casa Leopolda and is home to several decent restaurants where you can sample the delicious cuisine Tuscany is known for.

The larger town of Cortona is 11km from the villa. This characterful hilltop town boasts a number of ‘must see’ sights, including the Museo Diocesano, which displays wonderful artwork. The Osteria del Teatro is a highly recommended restaurant in this interesting town, where you will eat amongst black and white photos of the many actors who have dined here after performing in the nearby theatre.

Or for a truly tranquil and mesmerising day out, head to the wonderful shores of Lake Trasimeno, which is just 25km from Casa Leopolda.
