THE HAMLET Cortona Village Heights (aka Borgo di Vagli) is a beautifully restored 14th century Tuscan Hamlet, nestled in the Pierle Valley overlooking 1,000-year-old Pierle Castle. Located 20 minutes from the town of Cortona and Lake Trasimeno, this self-contained Hamlet is set on 12 hectares of ancient oaks, chestnuts and olive groves, deep in the Tuscan countryside. This property is certainly not for everyone. It is for those who enjoy the authenticity and charm of ducking under 600-year-old low doorways – catching scenic views through small windows cut through thick stone walls – and dining family-style in a traditional candlelit Trattoria. Our on-site concierge is more than happy to assist with your pre-arrival needs such as grocery shopping and activity planning, which can in...THE HAMLET Cortona Village Heights (aka Borgo di Vagli) is a beautifully restored 14th century Tuscan Hamlet, nestled in the Pierle Valley overlooking 1,000-year-old Pierle Castle. Located 20 minutes from the town of Cortona and Lake Trasimeno, this self-contained Hamlet is set on 12 hectares of ancient oaks, chestnuts and olive groves, deep in the Tuscan countryside. This property is certainly not for everyone. It is for those who enjoy the authenticity and charm of ducking under 600-year-old low doorways – catching scenic views through small windows cut through thick stone walls – and dining family-style in a traditional candlelit Trattoria. Our on-site concierge is more than happy to assist with your pre-arrival needs such as grocery shopping and activity planning, which can include setting up tee times, arranging wine tours, scheduling cooking classes, renting bicycles, etc. They will warmly welcome you upon arrival and show you to your residence. THE TRATTORIA The Trattoria is the epicenter, the gathering place where all guests dine together as a family allowing you to meet and mingle with other visitors as well as our amazing staff. Reservations must be arranged in advance with our concierge, as seating is limited. A light breakfast is served on Sunday and Monday mornings and dinner is served every night, except for Tuesdays. Our Executive Chef serves authentic home-style dinners with a rotating menu, so that you can experience an array of countryside recipes that have been handed down from to generation to generation over the years. In residence room service is also available for order. Additional fees will apply and can be settled upon check-out. THE MINI-MARKET The on-site mini-market offers a handful of basic Tuscan groceries so that you can prepare meals in the comforts of your own residence as needed. Our concierge will contact you via email prior to your arrival with a complete list of available items and will even offer to have any pre-ordered items placed in your residence. Additional fees will apply and can be settled upon check-out. THE POOL There is a heated outdoor pool perched upon the highest terrace overlooking the breathtaking Pierle Valley. It is a great place to cool off in the summer months and take in in the spectacular views. The pool is seasonal and is usually open April through October. THE RESIDENCES We have a variety of different sized-residences available for rent, including studio, one, two, and three-bedroom apartments. Each apartment contains a kitchen complete with a fridge, freezer, oven, gas stove, dishwasher, toaster, juicer and an Italian and American coffee maker. Each unit also has a living area with a television, DVD player and wireless internet access. There is a communal laundry facility on-site for your use as well. This three-bedroom apartment can accommodate up to 8 people, including the sofa bed, and there are two full bathrooms with showers. Please note that due to the authenticity of this property there is no air conditioning in the residences. VISITOR'S TAX A visitor’s tax will be collected on site. This tax is €3 per person per night for the first 4 nights. There is no charge for children under the age of 12. TRANSPORTATION Closest Airport: Perugia (PEG) – 30 miles from property Second Closest Airport: Florence (FLR) – 90 miles from property Third Closest Airport: Rome (FCO) – 155 miles from property A rental car is a must. The property does not provide shuttle services and since it is in a remote location, there is no public transportation that accesses the hamlet.
