Walking the grounds of Casa del Cortile is a joy to the senses. A great lime tree in the center of the courtyard provides shade and, when in season, fills the air with its scent. The sides of the building are lined with fragrant, climbing plants. The main house of Casa del Cortile enjoys a private pool, garden and terraces, while the apartments share a pool in a separate location, near the tennis courts and children’s playground. During the summer months tables and deck chairs are set in the shade in secluded spots, and barbecues provided for outdoor meals. A dining room and professional kitchen have recently been opened where gourmet Tuscan meals with home-made pasta and seasonal fruits and vegetables from the estate’s garden are prepared upon request.

They rest in the hills overlooking the miraculously unspoiled Val d’Orcia region of Southern Tuscany located midway between Florence and Rome. Medieval gems such as Pienza, Montepulciano and Montalcino are within easy reach a few miles away, while Siena, Arezzo and several stunning Umbrian towns are also within easy day-tripping distance. Nearby sits a beautifully renovated restaurant, perfect for a quick snack or meal. The countryside offers spectacular views, hikes and biking opportunities, and the food and wine of this part of Tuscany are among the best Italy has to offer.

    Southern Tuscany

    Testimonials

    Kerry (Hong Kong) stayed at Casa del Cortile during Summer 2013

    "Our family held a reunion this past summer at the delightful Casa del Cortile estate in Tuscany, Italy, which consists of a cluster of small apartments around a pleasant courtyard. Each family had the privacy of their own space, yet the intimacy offered by being just steps away from one another.

    Each apartment is traditional in look and feel, yet updated with modern conveniences, which made the stay both charming and comfortable. While the estate itself is beautiful, one merely has to look out the window or take a short walk around the property to enjoy breathtaking views of the estate gardens and surrounding area.

    The caretakers were quite easy to communicate with and were able to provide excellent recommendations for daily excursions as well as activities to entertain the kids. We were also given the option of having our meals cooked for us, which we gladly accepted. Each night we gathered in the courtyard to sit under the stars and enjoy an authentic Italian meal, prepared using fresh local ingredients. Molto gustoso!

    Each day we took walks in the early morning, swam mid-day, toured local wineries and hilltop towns and returned to the villa by early afternoon for another swim before dinner.

    It was a very special holiday, which our family will cherish for many years to come.”
