Villa with private pool near Cortona in Tuscany1521
Casa Montalla is a characteristic middle age tower, its origins date back to the year 1000 A.C. Based on the documents found, the villa should have been the property of Cardinal Passerini, state secretary and counselor of Pope Leone X Medici in the XVI century. The coat of arms of the Cardinal Passerini, sculpted in the imposing stone fireplace, testify his presence here.
The building has been carefully restored to make it confortable and enjoyable but still preserving the original caracteristics such as the wooden beamed ceilings and cotto floors in the tower. The furnishing is the typical tuscan old style, simple and essential but elegant and refined.
The private fenced swimming pool (4 x 11 meters and 1.15 deep) is located in front of the villa and equipped with sunbeds and sun ombrellas. Nice pergolas host the outside barbecue and the outdoor dining area with table and chairs.
