Tuscan Manor is a characteristic Leopoldine Villa, a typical Val di Chiana manor dating back to the 17th century, finely restored respecting the material and original architectonic features.
Leopoldine farmhouses take their name from their creator, the Grand Duke of Tuscany Pietro Leopoldo, who decided to finance their construction in order to improve the living conditions of the farmers of Val di Chiana, after the drainage of the swamp land.
In this wonderful Villa immersed in the Tuscan countryside, thanks to professionally led renovations, you can admire all the typical architectonic features of the Leopoldine period.
The “dove hut” on the roof is the most typical feature of these kinds of properties: a room, on top of the roof, which once served as a small warehouse for the peasants’ tools.
Today, the wise use of colors and high quality materials have made Tuscan Manor a property, unique in its kind, able to unite with taste and simplicity all the charm of the antique Tuscan tradition to the highest quality standards of modern living.
The wonderful private park around the Villa hosts the big swimming-pool (7×16 meters), open from May until September and is surrounded by secular, olive and cypress trees. The pool is surrounded with parasols and sunbeds.
From the extraordinary surroundings of the park of Tuscan Manor, one can enjoy the sun throughout the day and admire a splendid sunset with a view on the rolling Tuscan hills, among rows of cypresses, vineyards and olive trees, as well as Cortona, the antique Etruscan town, which can be reached in less than ten minutes.
