    Additional amenities & feature info
    The well equipped kitchen (with the all important dishwasher) is larger than most and has a separate breakfast/preparation marble table. The units are solid wood with marble worktops. We have the added luxury of a coffee machine for making espresso and cappuccino.

    3 large bedrooms, 2 doubles and a twin bedded room. The rooms are fitted with traditional Italian handmade solid wood furniture with plenty of storage and dressing space.

    All have beautiful views across the Val Di Chiana towards Cortona and being North facing are cooler at night. The bedrooms have internal solid wood shutters for blocking out the daylight and insect screens to allow them to be opened for ventilation.

    The lounge has an open fireplace and a very efficient central heating system for winter use.

    Airport: Perugia: 37.3 mi
    Railway: Camucia: 6.2 mi
    Nearest Airport: Perugia 60kms from Stanstead if you are lucky to live near there.
    We use Pisa or Rome airports which are about 2 hour drive to the villa from both. It is motorway/dual carriageway all the way and the house is only 5kms from the A1 exit at Bettolle.

    Nearest Train: Camucia 5kms
    Nearest Motorway : A1 Bettolle 5kms
    Car recommended

    Whilst the location is rural it could not be more convenient for visiting Southern Tuscany and Umbria and does not involve twisting and turning roads for access.

    Frequent trains run to Florence 11/2 hours and to Rome 2hours.Siena and Perugia are 45 minutes by car and for wine lovers Montepulciano, half an hour and onto Pienza for Peccorino cheese.

We spent a fornight at 'La Fenice' and had a great time.
The house is lovely and spacious with everything we needed provided and has fabulous views over Cortona which is a short drive away.
The big plus if you have children is that there's also an attached, enclosed garden.
Great area to spend time exploring and eating.
Looking forward to returning soon.

Our recent stay at La Fernice near the stunning hilltop town of Cortona proved to be an excellent choice for myself, my husband and my 18 month old son along with both sets of grandparents. From the information provided on how to get to La Fernice to the amenities in the farmhouse itself (washing machine, dishwasher, BBQ, toys etc) there is little room for fault. Any questions we had were answered quickly either by the managing agent or by the owner; this proved particularly important when our flights were cancelled due to an Italian general strike as Jennifer (the owner) allowed us stay an additional night which made a huge difference particularly as we had a toddler in tow!! The swimming pool and the garden proved to be the highlight of this family holiday, allowing us to take advantage of the wonderful Tuscan weather and scenery with ease! more
