In the Valdichiana valley in Tuscany near Cortona, Montepulciano and Lake Trasimeno in Umbria is this recently built villa suitable for up to 13 guests with its own private pool, airconditioning and great views over the Tuscan hills.
The villa is in the hamlet of Farneta, where in the last century even fossils of prehistoric elephants were found by the flamboyant local priest that left quite a cultural heritage in this small hamlet. Farneta itself is a small hamlet with one bar.
The pool of 6 by 12 metres has been fenced (not visible on the pictures yet) and offers a unique view over the hills towards Cortona. If you like walking or cycling this is an excellent choice. The valley of the Valdichiana is hilly, but not mountainous.
In the garden near the barbecue is a covered terrace overlooking the Tuscan hills.

The other side of this floor has a bedroom with a double bed and a bedroom with a bunkbed, that share a bathroom. In between the two areas is a large space turned into a living and dining room, and also here is a spacious fully equipped kitchen.
A staircase leads upstairs where there is a double bedroom with a bathroom.
Going down the stairs to the lower floor is an apartment all open plan with a double bedroom, a bathroom and the third fully equipped kitchen. French doors open up to the garden with the swimming pool. Here an extra bed can be made for two more guests.
