Completely renovated Tuscan farmhouse with 3 rustic-style apartments. For groups possibilities to rent the whole villa.
DescriptionSet within the green hills of Tuscany, a few kilometers away from the old Etruscan town of Cortona farmhouse Rocca di Pierle is the perfect place to find peace and tranquility in contact with the pace of nature.
This farm house has been completely remodeled and refurbished in full respect of its rustic country style, overlooks a beautiful untouched valley and is kissed by the sun, from sunrise to sunset. It is possible to rent one of the full-optional apartments or the whole villa, to enjoy the place with family or friends.
The country house completely remodeled in full respect of its rustic country style overlooks a valley called Val di Pierle that is untouched and kissed by the sun from sunrise to sunset.
Apart from the three apartments of the farmhouse, the adjacent common room, called Cambusa, has been also refurbished to be used either as a common space for the guests renting the whole property or to offer additional services such as breakfast, cooking classes and tasting menus.
The hilly location of the country house, only 17 Km from Cortona and at an altitude of 500 m AMSL, together with the pure air of the beautiful Tuscan hills mean that summer heat is never unbearable, making thus your stay in Tuscany really pleasant and relaxing.
Agriturismo Rocca di Pierle has always paid attention to “Green Energy” and energy saving: since 2012 it is equipped with a photovoltaic system producing most of the electricity used and, for the remaining part, avails itself of the services provided by a supplier producing power exclusively from renewable sources.
Every apartment is equipped with air-conditioning and heating by heat pump, having a separate thermostat for the living area and for the sleeping area, which can be complemented, during particularly cold winter months, by a heating system with LGP powered radiators.
The favorable position of the farmhouse, a few kilometers from Cortona and from Lake Trasimene, makes it possible to quickly and easily reach the main cities of historical value and cultural interest in Tuscany and Umbria and to go hiking along natural paths or simply along the marvelous roads scattered all around the district.
After a lovely excursion it is nice to come back and continue enjoying the beauty and the relaxing sounds of nature in this stunning country house with swimming pool in Cortona, maybe taking a well-deserved dip in the large panoramic swimming pool made available to guests from April to October.
Panoramic Swimming pool
The beautiful swimming pool with a magnificent view onto the entire valley, gives another touch of elegance and distinctiveness to Agriturismo Rocca di Pierle.
Thanks to the great skills of experienced craftsmen we succeeded in creating something simply uncommon and peculiar.
Every single stone used to build the pool was sourced by a local supplier and then shaped and hand-smoothed directly on site to make sure the result was as natural and exclusive as possible. The dark-color tarpaulin that coats the pool gives the water a somewhat warm and mysterious effect. Its size is as follows: 7.5m maximum width, 5 m minimum width, and 14 m length. Depth varies between 0.50 m and 1.80 m.
The elevated location, as compared to the house and the garden, of the swimming pool and the sunbathing area offers perfect privacy in addition to a scenic view onto the underlying valley.
The farmhouse is set in a huge panoramic garden of about 5,000 sq.m. overlooking the Val di Pierle valley near Cortona on one side and the surrounding hills on the other. The garden on different terraced levels is undoubtedly the jewel in the crown of our farmhouse with the swimming pool and the sunbathing area in a slightly elevated position, and the garden all around, characterised by a lawn where one can walk on, trees, bushes, flower beds, evergreen plants and seasonal flowers.
The large garden and the panoramic swimming pool are also available to organize receptions and exclusive events.
Another strong point of our farmhouse in Cortona Rocca di Pierle is represented by the spacious and comfortable multi-functional room called “Cambusa”, which can accommodate up to 14/16 people.
With its area of about 40 sq.m., fully air-conditioned (and heated), equipped with Bose – Harman Kardon audio/Dolby system, 60-inch flat TV, WI-FI, and timber floor, it is the ideal place to share relaxing moments or social gatherings during sport or recreational events.
Thanks to its new full optional kitchen, this is the right place to organize cooking classes, traditional buffet breakfasts and tasting sessions of typical local products, such as homemade pasta, cold cuts, cheese and fine Tuscan wines.
In case the whole farmhouse is rented for the exclusive use of guests, it is possible to use this space with a little surcharge to spend fun moments all together.
