    Cortona
    |
    Condo/Apartment – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    The house, made by stones, consists of living room with a converteble sofa-bed and a breath taking view of the Val di Chiana Valley, full kitchen with breakfast cristal table and the same view of the living room plus pantry with washing machine. Bathroom with shower, bidet, sink and toilette, bedroom with queen size bed and a big wardrobe/closet, window on the characteristic 'Vicolo San Michelangelo'.

    It also homes a branch of the Georgia University - USA, for artistic matters....
