Villa Sorbello is a fabulous converted farmhouse with a private pool. The villa lies a mere 15 minutes drive from the renowned Tuscan town of Cortona or from the pretty shores of Lake Trasimeno.

This is a great base from which to explore Tuscanys hilltop towns and the hidden treasures of Umbria.

The villa is surrounded by woods and olive trees, offering many shady spots and furnished garden area including a vine-covered loggia. A gardener tends to the grounds every day. Nearest home is 200 meters away and it is used by its owners only few weeks in August.

The comfortable and spacious interiors feature French doors that open onto the garden and terraces. All six bedrooms have air conditioning (payable locally).

Villa Description

The temptation here will be to relax by the beautiful pool in the spacious grounds of this comfortable, renovated farmhouse. Yet you are ideally based to experience the delights of both Tuscany and Umbria. Situated near Lake Trasimeno (5km), itself offering waterside restaurants and beaches, Villa Sorbello is on the border of the two regions. Cortona, Montepulciano, Pienza, Perugia, the names roll off the tongue and all are within an hour's drive.


Groups of friends or a couple of families will appreciate the spaciousness of this fine property. Behind the traditional stone exterior of this Tuscan farmhouse with its wooden shutters lies a light and airy interior, with large rooms running the width of the house that are attractively furnished and well decorated. A recent extension has created a large kitchen and two bedrooms, each with their own bathroom facilities. An extensive garden with plants and trees, and a number of terraces ensure outdoor living is in a pleasant setting. The large pool is at the front of the house, surrounded by lawn and partially fenced, and overlooks the fields of the surrounding countryside.

The small village of Pietraia (4km) has a couple of shops, but for a wider range of amenities and restaurants, the stunning hill-top town of Cortona is only 10km. Here you will find history, art and culture, all in a town little changed since the Middle Ages.

Please note: Central heating and A/C are payable locally. Parties paying the small party rate will have access to three bedrooms only

Dear Silvia Thank you for your messages. We are pleased you like the present. We were thrilled with the hotel Aprile, and with its close proximity to the farmacia! And of course we thoroughly loved our Florence experience! Really sorry we couldnt see you: I left a text on your phone but maybe you dont take that phone to work! Florence was very hot last weekend, particularly when we traipsed around the Pitti Palace. We managed to visit most things last weekend - except for the Uffizzi which we visited last time. According to our newspapers, Florence seems a bit cooler now. We returned to England in the rain!! After a rare heatwave - and severe drought - we are also cooling down a bit. Villa Carisma was as lovely as ever. We bought a CD player at London airport before we flew out, and decided to give it to the villa (as we enjoy listening to music while sitting out at night: a rare treat for British people!) Yes, fee is fine for next year. I presume Ill pay 1330 euros in Sept/Oct, then 2670 euros next May. Is that correct? We think that: the dishwasher and cooker need some attention! The cooker temperatures dont seem to heat at full strength, and the dishwasher is not cleaning stuff properly. Also it would be good to smarten up the bbq a bit. Otherwise, as you know, we love it so much, and wouldnt change anything else. Good to see Raffaello and Italo again. Italo was very patient with our girls, who kept shouting out "Buongiorno": he was very good with them, and, next year, he has our permission to turn the hose on them! Thanks again for all your help. Darias La Porta was wonderful in Monticciello. Fufluns pizza restaurant we never got to - but never mind. Had some terrific pizzas in Florence - and gelato! Hope the next Villa Carisma people are enjoying it as much as us - and that the weather hasnt broken yet. See you next year?

Hi Silvia, Just a short note to say thank you so very much for all your help with our holiday, we had a fantastic time and exactly what we needed after our hectic house move. The villa is the most perfect place to stay and we would love to return. Raffaello has advised us that he may be selling the villa, but if this does not happen, would it be possible to provisionally book us in for 2 weeks in June next year? If it is possible we would like to book the weeks commencing Saturday 21st June until Saturday 5th July. If you could please let us know as and when you have some information regarding availability and prices, we would be only too pleased to forward a deposit. Once again, many many thanks for your help. And spare a thought for us in miserable UK, as it hasnt stopped raining since our return! Very best regards and warmest wishes Brian & Julie
