An exceptionally well-positioned villa close to Cortona. The villa is a prestigious residence commissioned by an English baroness to a famous Italian architect last century.

A few minutes outside Cortona the property is immersed among old pine trees and mature olives, the gardens immediately around the house are immaculately kept, yet merge perfectly at the edges with the wilder olive groves beyond.
