Overall Property Description:
Casale Girifalco is immersed in nature with a breathtaking view of the Valdichiana. Its strategic position makes it a unique holidayhome for those who want to enjoy the beauty of tuscan landscape and the closeness to the town (500 metres) without noise or traffic.
Located only 500 metres (5 minutes on foot) from the etruscan city walls of Cortona, “Villa Casale Girifalco” is the ideal location for relaxing and stress-free holidays. Casale Girifalco, converted from a 17th century farmhouse and tastefully restored, provides guests, thanks to its stunning panoramic location, its beautiful swimming-pool and its proximity to the town centre with an ideal spot for relaxing holidays in Tuscany. The complex consists of 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms for a total of 12 people.
The beautiful stone-building has retained notable 16th century trimmings. Restoration work was completed in June 2007 and all furnishings were personally and carefully picked by the owner amongst valuable genuine family antique pieces. The mansion served up to the 18th century as a post house known as the “Locanda del Girifalco” (as is witnessed by the old coat of arms depicting a “gyrfalcon” a bird of prey also known as Falco rusticolus) where the wayfarers could spend a night under cover. The property stands amidst a charming park that may be visited on foot and offers guests superb relaxing spots between olive-groves.
The villa open out through large French doors (all with insect screen) onto the front garden unfolding with terracing and lawns. The 4x8 meter swimming-pool specially reserved for our guests’ enjoyment is equipped with a salt electrolysis water-treatment system and sun shower.
