LA VALIANA is glad to welcome you in the very heart of Tuscany, right midway among Montepulciano, Cortona and Trasimeno Lake. This elegant villa has been thought as the ideal accommodation for independent travellers (max. Occupancy 8) desiring to experience the more authentic Tuscan lifestyle, for a relaxed family reunion or dream Tuscany holiday with a group of friends. At your arrive you will be received by an enchanting pathway that will lead you into this gorgeously landscaped property. The building has recently been restored and features 4 bedrooms - 3 with double size bed, 1 with two twins - all with marble ensuite bathroom. Entering by the large arched windows you will be directly in the bright main lounge of the villa, that according to country-style tradition is the true hub of the house. It is composed by a dining and a sitting area. In the centre of the dining area stands an ancient Tuscan style table, enriched by a magnificent 18th century chandelier and surrounded by 8 upholstered chairs. In the sitting area two comfortable sofas will allow you to watch a sports game on the flat screen TV Sat, or even entertaining conversations in front of a crackling fireplace with your family and friends on early Spring or Autumn. Finally two large windos-door open out directly onto the garden, where a beautiful sitting area under a pergola runs the entire length of the house overlooking the valley. With this view and gentle summer breeze, this pergola is the ideal shaded spot for friends and family to gather for leisurely meals, conversations or drinks. So you could comfortably move between indoor and outdoor for grilling at the barbeque, serving meals or enjoying a glass of wine. All the ground floor rooms overlook the garden; and on the upper levels large windows allow the Tuscan landscape to break into the rooms, providing a splendid frame of the Tuscan hills as far as the eye can see. And all around roses, bougainvillea, geranium, fig and apple trees, and a vegetable garden at your complete disposal... But La Valiana will catch you even by its great location and the superb facilities. While modern technology and comfort would make the old building functional in modern sense that would meet contemporary lifestyles. For your maximum comfort the villa is fully Air-conditioned, anyway – if you love to sleep with open windows to let the nightly breeze on – any bedroom has one window equipped with screen. The villa has also free Wi-Fi connection throughout the building and by the pool area. You will find the bedrooms already equipped with linen (Sheets, Towels, blankets), slippers, Welcome set for bathroom, bathrobes and pool towels. The villa is supplied with 2 hairdryers, toaster, American coffeemaker and traditional Italian Moka, dishwasher and refrigerators, cookware, dinnerware, glassware and kitchen utensils, dishtowels and table clothes. Extra blankets and pillows are provided, with kitchen staples (salt, sugar, pepper, tea and many spices), dish soap and trash bags. The panoramic HEATED swimming pool (12 x 6mt / 39 x 19.5ft ), with hydromassage feature, sits a short distance from the main house, and it is completely immersed in the green of the vineyard. Two lovely gazebos are also added to the otdoors by the pool: one with a covered dining spot; one with fresh canvas and shaded loungechairs. Although Summers in Italy can be hot, a number of our guests have expressed an interest in HEATED pool especially at the beginning and end of the season. A well-heated pool lets you enjoy the view and the fun of swimming long after the day’s heat has gone or even if it’s a crisp, spring morning. And finally the sitting chairs on the panoramic deck make for the perfect spot to soak in the Tuscan sun with a cool drink in hand at the sunset. And finally...the 'Dolce Vita' Private Dining room: thought for those guests who want to enhance their stay with a special dining experience, but not to leave the comfort and privacy of their villa. This refined and panoramic dining room is exclusively dedicated for in-villa culinary experience. Whether it’s a refine dinner cooked by a Professsional chef or a Traditional cooking class with handmade pasta, nobody will bother the comfort and the privacy of your villa. The chef will take care of the meal in the professional kitchen at his only disposal, we'll set the table and the mood. So jus sit back and enjoy your memorable night at 'Dolce Vita' dining room. So... spoil yourself and take time off to enjoy the fine things in life with the view onto the rolling Tuscan hills. A refined residence, at the same time blessed with all the comforts and yet retaining the flavour and allure of most authentic Tuscany. You only have to sink in, dine slow and enjoy all of it, in a peaceful and elegant atmosphere.

About the neighborhood
La Valiana is located on the ridge of a vineyards-covered hill, where you can overlook Montepulciano, Cortona and Trasimeno Lake. The villa has a strategic loction, just 8 minutes driving from the exit Cortona-Montepulciano of the highway Siena-Perugia, and is comfortably reachable by paved roads. Here you can enjoy a Grapes Tour, in our vineyard, that produces Nobile di Montepulciano grapes; or have the Extra-virgin olive oil Tasting, of our production. If you like Tuscan cooking, you can have a Tuscan Mama's Cooking Class; or enjoying the Private Cook Service. Right along the same street of the villa, there is the world-renowed winery Avignonesi, where you could enjoy a interesting wine-Tour or a comete Lunch Tasting.
