Cortona, Province of Arezzo, Tuscany
La Lombarda, our beautifully restored traditional 18th century Tuscan farmhouse is ideally placed within easy reach of Tuscany and Umbria's wealth of art and cultural centres. Cortona, nestling in its hillside just 20 minutes away, with its medieval cobbled lanes is a delightful and atmospheric town. Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Perugia and Assisi are all within a hours scenic drive.

The farmhouse is set in a rural landscape and is an oasis to which to return to after a days sightseeing. Relax by the pool and soak up the sun or sit under the jasmine covered pergola with a good book and a glass of local wine taking in the view of rolling countryside.

Il Bocciolo, The Rosebud, is a spacious and comfortable apartment that dates from the late 1700's and was originally a stable.
The lounge area has two large sofas one of which con...

This was the first time we have stayed away from a city and absolutely loved our experience. Peter and Nina were fabulous hosts and La Lombarda is beautiful. The apartment was on the ground floor and had a private patio with table, chairs, BBQ pit. The decor is rustic and very comfortable. The bed is very comfortable. The location is...

Management response:

Peter and I are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at La Lombarda and that Il Bocciolo felt like home. It was lovely to hear about your love for Italy, where you had been and see some of your photos. We really appreciate your kind review, thank you both.

We loved our week in this beautiful farmhouse retreat in Tuscany. Perched amongst the vineyards, olive trees and rolling hills of the countryside, we were made to feel completely at home. We enjoyed having breakfasts and cooking dinners in the wonderful kitchen, and ventured out each day to explore various places in Tuscany and neighboring Umbria. Nina and Peter were...

About the neighbourhood
From its lofty perch, picturesque and historic Cortona an Etruscan town founded around 700b.c., much of the Valdichiana and Lake Trasimeno may be surveyed: the mountains of Cetona and Amiata, and the town of Montepulciano to the south.

Cortona's excellent Etruscan museum houses fascinating and priceless relics including the 4th century B.C. 'Etruscan Chandelier'. The Diocese Museum has many works of significant artistic value, the masterpiece being Fra Angelico's 'Annuciation'.

Hidden in a cleft of Monte Sant' Egidio lies 'Le Celle' founded by Saint Francis in 1211. This peaceful, spiritual place is where the saint spent some time and where you can still see his cell. The monks here continue living their lives according to his teachings.
