This elegant apartment is in a beautiful 15th century palazzo that was constructed at the height of the Renaissance period and once belonged to an Italian nobleman. The property is conveniently situated in Cortona's ancient centre and though it is only 50 metres from Piazza Repubblica, it is amazingly quiet.
Access is via a small courtyard and you enter the palazzo through a frescoed hallway and mount the old stone steps, of which there are only 11, to reach the first floor. A shared corridor takes you to the door of the apartment through which you enter the living/dining room which has magnificent high ceilings and a large window that floods the room with light and provides beautiful views across the rooftops to the valley below and Lake Trasimeno in the distance.
On one side of the living room is a very large master bedroom, whilst on the other side is the kitchen, a fully equipped bathroom with separate shower and a guest bedroom. All the rooms have large windows enjoying the same views. Tastefully furnished in a style befitting the old building, this has been an ideal pied-à-terre for the present owner in this most sought after of Tuscan cities.
