A large and luminous apartment in the historic city center of Cortona. Recently restored with a discerning eye to historical accuracy (listed on the national historical register) and has been lovingly furnished with antiques and reproductions predominantly in the "Impero" and "Luigi Filipo" styles. The apartment is on the "noble" floor of the building and was home to several noble Cortonese families for more than 600 years - from the mid-1300s to the mid-1900s. There are numerous frescoes - both on several domed ceilings (one fresco believed to date to the early 1600s) and the walls.

The oldest part of the building dates to pre-1200s but the apartment has all the modern conveniences (eat-in kitchen, 2 baths, dishwasher, & washer) and is fully furnished. It also has a TV and a phone.

The apartment is on one level and is about 180 square meters (~1,935 sq. ft.) in area with most ceilings ranging from 12.5' to 14' in height. The main door leads into an ingresso (receiving room) with frescoed dome & walls and tile floor with inlays. From there, a door opens into a grand living area (salone) with chandelier and tile floors with inlay; doors lead off the salone to the kitchen/dining area and a domed corridor. From the corridor you can enter the first bathroom, a bedroom with a domed ceiling, or the more private area of the apartment (which has a master suite - bedroom and sitting/living room; a second bath; and another bedroom). The master suite and the bedroom next to it have double (matrimoniale) beds and the third bedroom has two twin (singolo) beds. There are two large tiled bathrooms, one with a large shower and the other with a tub/shower. In the pranzo/cucina or combined dining area/kitchen, there is a fireplace which has been hand-carved from the local "pietra serena" stone.

From the large windows, the apartment has praiseworthy views over either the Valdichiana valley or the tile roofs of Cortona from most of the rooms.

The apartment is near the main piazzas, museums, restaurants/cafes, and parking.

Sleeps six (2 BR w/matrimoniale beds, 1 BR w/two singolo beds). No pets allowed. No smoking. No young children.
