Luxury Villa in Cortona | Holiday Accommodation Cortona

Villa Fonte

Villa Fonte is located in an extraordinary panoramic position in the open countryside surrounded by olive trees and other typical Tuscan plants but within walking distance from the famous historical town of Cortona just 400 meters away. The perfect place for a holiday dedicated to mental and physical wellbeing, relaxation and fine dining all completed by art, culture and nature without giving up the most modern and exclusive comforts and services.

Villa Fonte is the result of carefully planned and well organised restoration works in 2010. The property was built fully respecting the morphology of the territory and maintaining  the terraces that characterise the picturesque hills of Cortona. Recycled materials have been used as much as possible such as the stones from the excavation site used for the façade. Most probably the same type of stone of the nearby XVI century Monumental Church of Santa Maria Nuova of the renowned architects Vasari and Cristofanello.

Following a eco-sustainable project, it has been used a mixture of lime (without cement) originally used in Roman times for grouting and plastering, natural cork panels were used for the interior insulation and rainwater for the irrigation.

The heating system uses a hybrid thermal fireplace for wood and pellets, together with solar panels. The floor heating and the isolation methods provide an excellent temperature control for utmost comfort both during the winter and the summer.

In Roman times this area was known as the Water Springs (Fonte), hence the name of the villa, and the owners tried to remain in keeping with this historical reference with the outdoor swimming pools and also with the exclusive wellness area in each room.

Instead of the typical wellness center the villa offers a private wellness area in each bedroom where you can relax and unwind in every bathroom equipped with hydromassage showers or lay quietly in the Jacuzzi bathtubs not to mention the pleasant Turkish bath. Always surrounded by enchanting views of the Tuscan countryside and the ancient walls of the town of Cortona. 

The mindful attention to the privacy and the wellbeing of the guests make Villa Fonte the ideal place for an extraordinary holiday under the Tuscan sun, immersed in the culture and traditions of this land pampered by luxurious relaxation.

ACCOMODATION

Villa Fonte is made of two separate buildings: the main Villa and its dependence which will only be rented together with the villa. It sleeps 12 persons in 6 bedrooms with 5 bathrooms

The main Villa has 4 bedrooms with 4 private bathrooms with a wellness area (Turkish bath and whirlpool baths and showers), the kitchen, a dining room, and the living areas. 

The bedrooms are all spacious and bright and enjoy spectacular views over the Valdichiana. All the bedrooms are provided with air conditioning, wi-fi internet connexion and private bathrooms some with both Whirlpool showers and Jacuzzi bathtub. One of the bedrooms also has a Turkish bath and direct access to a private terrace equipped with garden furniture.

The dependence can comfortably accommodate up to 5 people in two bedrooms, one of which is located on the typical wooden mezzanine floor. There is a spacious bathroom with shower and an open space that includes the kitchen and living room with the traditional fireplace.

Recently restored respecting the traditional features such as the central fireplace, it offers also all the modern comforts included the wi-fi internet connexion. This is the ideal place where to be pampered by a warm and welcoming ambience/atmosphere. The outside space is organized with a gazebo to eat outside.

The layout of the villa and its dependence are perfect for both families and group of friends travelling together. 

The owners live nearby and they will be available if necessary but invisible when not needed. 

GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL

Villa Fonte is immersed in a green estate surrounded by olive groves set in a panoramic location, with views over the Val di Chiana, Cortona, the Mount Sant’Egidio and the stunning Santa Maria Nuova church.

In addition to the indoor wellness areas, Villa Fonte offers two outdoor swimming pools. One of the pools (4 x 8 meters and 1.20 meter deep) has an infinity edge to feel like part of the landscape surrounding. The other one (4 x 9 meters and 1.20 meter deep) has the classical Roman staircase. Both pools are equipped with comfortable sun beds and chairs where you can relax while enjoying the breathtaking views of the valley.

Far from the noise and traffic of the towns, you can enjoy the open countryside within just  400 metres from the famous Old Town of Cortona, which can be easily reached in a few minutes walking.

The pool area is completed by a great outdoor kitchen, for you to prepare and taste your meals in the open air sheltered in the shade of the pergola, while enjoying the stunning views of the valley below.

Villa Fonte

Reviews

We had the most wonderful stay at Villa Fonte! The house is magnificent, has been built and decorated with great care and taste, and is perfectly situated from the nearby village. Francesco and Silva ensured that everything worked seamlessly for us and Francesco cooked – and, taught us how to make – the most delicious meals! It was a delight and pleasure to be there and a truly memorable holiday was enjoyed with our family. Our only disappointment was when we had to leave!
