Our Villa is the ideal location for a peaceful holiday in the warm atmosphere of an old country farmhouse, beautifully preserved in its original architectural style, furnished with antique furniture, and authentic decorative objects that range from rustic handicrafts to exquisite artisanal works. Brolio Quinto offers of two apartments: “La Loggetta” on the first floor, and “La Limonaia” on the ground floor. Each apartment has it’s own private outdoor space (including tables, barbecue, gazebo). --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- LA LIMONAIA The ground floor apartment is accessed via a large veranda which leads to the sitting room. The entryway/sitting room is where the stables were originally located. Here you can still admire the original design of the ceiling, which provides an example of the architecture typical of old Tuscan farm buildings. In the magnificent archways you can still see where the bricks were worn down as they were rubbed against by the animals in certain places. This is a true window into the past, framed with warmth and refinement. From the living room (complete with a fireplace and a beautiful piano), you can enter the large and luminous dining room through two french doors. The dining room has a table that seats 14 people, from which you can admire a magnificent view of the beautiful town of Cortona by way of a large, arched glass door. An antique wood stove and a grill also enhance the dining area. The well-appointed kitchen is modern, still harmonises with the antique elements in the rest of the house. From the french windows of the kitchen you enter into the garden, which is shaded by a gazebo and has a beautiful dining table for 14 and and portable barbecue that guests are welcome to use. The apartment has two bedrooms with queen-sized beds and one triple room containing one queen-sized bed and one french bed. Each room has its own private bathroom—two of which have showers and the third has a tub with shower. The stone villa, built in the 19th century, is at a height of 320m. There are panoramic views of the old castle of Montecchio and Cortona, a short drive from the farmhouse. Monte San Savino, Lucignano and the Trasimeno Lake are all close by, offering plenty of cultural attractions and the folklore of international renown. The farmhouse is surrounded by fully-fenced grounds of 4.5-hectares, which include a stunning swimming-pool (6x14 m) set in a spacious, sunny position, with a spectacular view of Cortona and the Medieval castle of Montecchio. The pool is fully equipped with beach-umbrellas , deck-chairs ,sunbeds and gazebos, in addition to the natural shade of the enormous nearby willow . A shower in an original stone structure. Children and adults can also enjoy inflatables, balls and other games. The pool is open from May until the end of September, except in the case of unfavourable weather conditions. The pool and surrounding structures are all in compliance with local safety laws and regulations. The garden contains a variety of fruit trees, around 180 olive trees, 80 magnificent oak trees, and 10 lovely lemon trees. These provide plenty of shaded space in which to relax and enjoy your vacation. In the garden you will also find an outdoor kitchen built on a stone platform. It features a four-burner cooktop set in a solid oak counter, a sink, and a large barbecue. Near the rose-covered gazebo you will find a table that seats 14 people, as well as a small outbuilding equipped with dishwasher, sink, refrigerator, and everything necessary for cooking and setting the table. This structure is to be used by the chef for preparing private dinners, and for cooking classes that can be arranged in advance directly with the owner of the property.

About the neighborhood
Arezzo is only 20 kilometers away, where every first Sunday of the month, is carried out an important market of the antique. Moreover the first Sunday of September the city accommodates the ancient Giostra of the Saracino, a typical medieval quarrel. If you make your journey in the months of July and August, you can attend to the famous Palio of the city of Siena, which is only 45 km from here. Siena is soaked of traditions and artistic masterpieces of inestimable beauty like the Cathedral, the Communal Palace and the famous square Piazza del Campo, where takes place the Palio.
How to get there
Upon request we organize: It is possible to organise a cooking class of typical Tuscan dishes in the outdoor kitchen, if the weather permits and you reserve in advance. Most of the ingredients used by the chef come from the farmhouse’s organic garden and we exclusively use the owner’s own olive oil. Guided excursions with truffle dogs, showing steps to clean and keep truffles. Guided mountain bike tours in the surrounding areas. Guided tours in Cortona, Castiglion Fiorentino, Arezzo. At about 1 Km from the farmhouse there is the cyclo/pedestrian route of the Canale Maestro della Chiana, which links Arezzo to Chiusi and reaches the archaeological site of Sodo, in Cortona. It is a 62 +12 km route, properly equipped and protected for those who like to travel slowly, cycling or walking. Th...
