Villa Serena, an aristocratic 19th century villa in Cortona Region in eastern Tuscany, is surrounded by olive groves and chestnut woods, looking out over the massive Valdichiana and the foothills of the Apennine Alps.
The area combines great natural beauty (Lake Trasimeno is a short drive away) with a wealth of historical remains and artefacts — Etruscan, Roman and mediæval. Cortona's ancient walls and winding streets have resisted the ravages of modern development and the town has several excellent restaurants.
The villa offers accommodation for six guests, and has two annexes - Serenella and Limonaia - each with an independent entrance. This is a traditional Tuscan home, with the rich, warm colours of terracotta and chestnut beams lending a timeless elegance. The rooms are spacious and light, and furniture and furnishings have been carefully selected to emphasise the grandeur of the building.
The ground floor of the villa consists of a large living room with a grand fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen with a freezer and dishwasher, and a bathroom. The first floor has three double bedrooms with period beds and furniture, and two bathrooms, one with tub. The large terrace is furnished with a big table, ideal for breakfasts and evening meals, and has splendid panoramic views.
Serenella and Limonaia, each with accommodation for two guests, are decorated in the same luxurious style as the villa, with cotta tiling and period furniture lending an air of rustic luxury.
The grounds are well tended and there is a swimming pool (shared by the main residence and the annexes) - this is a truly perfect spot for a relaxing, country holiday in Tuscany.

"From a high Tuscan hill, fifty miles from Florence between Arezzo and Perugia, rises the equally ancient and nobile city of Cortona. Before the city lies a vast and beautiful plain, it is flanked on either side by distant hills and valleys while behind it are towering yet fruitful mountains. Cortona has a picturesque aspect, quite a bit longer than wide, turned toward the midday sun. Her district is fertile and is abundant with all that is necessary to human life. It is Cortona marked by the Meridian-Antartic star sign, feminine, in motion, pungent, earthy, frigid and dry and under the noble reign of..."

This is the description of Cortona in one of the first known guidebooks, compiled by Giacomo Lauro and printed in Rome in 1639. In order to assist tourists of the times, the guidebook was illustrated with a map of the city, an aerial plan line drawing by Pietro Berrettini. Berretini was a Cortonese artist best known as Pietro da Cortona and his drawing lends prestige to this guidebook.

After nearly four hundred years that description is still valid. Cortona has changed very little in its urban make up, it remains there- framed in the center of a triangle which has for its corners three of the cities of Central Italy which are most rich in history and art works, Arezzo, Siena and Perugia. About eighty kilometers from Florence, Cortona remains a satellite of this city, remaining in its orbit nearly 500 years from 1411 the year of the loss of her independance as a free Comune until 1860.


Before embarking on a visit of the city (located 600 meters above sea level), it would be opportune for the tourist to be familiar with the essential threads of history which run though its culture and artistic treasures.
