    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    An excellent setting for the perfect sight seeing holiday, or the start to your honeymoon, our medieval 3-storey home lies at the historic heart of walled Cortona, with its gourmet restaurants; an Etruscan hill town, profiled against rolling oak and olive clad hills, where Frances Mayes wrote 'Under the Tuscan Sun', favoured by countless couples as their perfect romantic wedding venue.
