Villa Maniero

Sleeps 12 (+2), 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms
This stunning villa is set in the Tuscan hills between Cortona and Mercatale, near the Umbrian border. Set within its own meadows and olive groves, a private lake and numerous woodland walks, it is still within easy reach of many of the major Tuscan and Umbrian towns.

Designed and renovated by a renowned interior designer, Villa Maniero exudes sophistication and tranquility.
The villa enjoys lots of space both internally and above all externally. Large showers, wood beams, oak ceilings and stone doorways all assist in combining to create a unique, luxurious getaway

Vacation Property Details

The spacious kitchen/dining room, provides the latest equipment in elegant surroundings. Through two ancient Roman capitols you leave the kitchen and enter the large hall and from there, the double doors open onto an exquisite arched loggia.
The huge table of reclaimed oak is a wonderful place to enjoy lunch and look down on the olive groves and the infinity pool below.

Each bedroom and bathroom is dedicated to comfort without losing any of the integral charm of this beautiful house.
The bathrooms are characterized by the magnificent free standing baths, large walk-in showers, antique marble baths;
The bedrooms have lovely four poster beds and antique furniture.

The drawing room, a large and extremely spacious room, is furnished with a graceful and understated style. The sofas are deep and comfortable and the beautiful artifacts and paintings only add to the atmosphere.
The study is charming and more intimate, and the upstairs galleried sitting room with sofas is another beautiful space to retreat from the world.

From two of the first floor terraces you can see castles on the distant hilltops, and it is the ideal place to sip a prosecco and drink in the atmosphere.
It is difficult not to be overwhelmed by the setting and the stunning far-reaching views to the distant hilltop villages and castles. The pool is set amongst the olive trees, sculpted into the grounds, with an infinity edge that disappears into the spectacular backdrop.
Surrounded by 34 hectares of its own land, all fenced to maintain the safety of the natural environment and the protection of the animals that live within the woods, it provides the perfect backdrop for the truly idyllic holiday.

Welcome Provisions Included A welcome gesture to offer you a drink after your journey; tea or coffee and biscuits, wine or juice and a snack. They are not sufficient for an entire meal. Owners will also generally leave a few other items to get you going such as some salt, sugar, oil, bin bags and toilet paper. Food Hamper Can be arranged for an additional cost and service charge payable locally. For guests who are arriving late or who recognize they may be delayed and arrive with no time to do shopping. Shops are shut on Sundays, so the aim of the Food Hampers is to provide two light meals and two breakfasts, to allow guests to go out for one meal, then do more shopping on Monday. We can adapt these hampers to take into account allergies, dislikes and dietary requirements, or according to whether there are children in the party. Cook Service Prices and Booking The cook will charge 20 per hour for her time, plus there will be the cost of food. Bear in mind that shopping and travelling take up quite a long time. As a very rough indication, a simple three-course meal for 6 people could take 5 hours, whilst a more elaborate four-course meal for 10 could even take nine hours.
