Take the Italian Autostrada A1: Milan – Modena – Bologna – Firenze – in the direction of Rome. If you come from Rome, take the A1 in the direction of Firenze – Bologna. Exit this highway at the Valdichiana exit (about 90 KM after Florence coming from the North, or about 150 KM after Rome coming from the south). Having paid the toll you keep to the right and follow directions for Perugia, towards the SS75 or “Raccordo Perugia – A1 Bettole”. After a few 100 metres you will enter the SS75. This is the provincial highway (no toll), connecting Siena and Perugia.
Follow this highway in the direction of Perugia and exit at Castiglione del Lago.
At the bottom of the exit go right towards Terontola and Cortona, this is the SR71, strada regionale 71. You’ll pass Terontola, a small hamlet called Ricco and will go right (on the corner is a restored farm house colour red) at Ossaia. Drive slowly through this hamlet and follow the road straight to Cortona. You’ll get to a T-crossing with antique walls left and right. Go right here in the direction of Mercatale and Pergo. This is the Strada Provinciale Val di Pierle.
Arriving at Pergo you will pass the Relais la Corte dei Papi on your right, and a little bit further on is the pizzeria on the right. Go left here, just after the local grocery. You’ll drive up to the church passing the cemetery on your right. The church is on the left. Follow the curve to the right and right again. Driving in between olive groves you’ll end up in front of the gate of the Antica Villa degli Ulivi.
At the end of the village of Pergo, just before an antique wall on the left and where the road is narrower, is another road up, that also ends up at the house, but it is difficult to make the turn into the gate arriving from here.
