Villa Farneta Tuscany

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. Read our blog about 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.

prices, availability & booking

The villa was originally divided in three spacious apartments and hence why there are three complete kitchens to use. The villa is recently built and has all modern comfort.

On the main floor is a bedroom with a double bed and a bedroom with a single bed sharing one bathroom. To this end of the building is a separate fully equipped kitchen.

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.

Each kitchen has a dishwasher, a large fridge with freezer and an induction plate to cook. The bathrooms have a shower and one also has a bathtub. Each bathroom has a hairdryer fixed to the wall.

There is airconditioning and wifi. To the side of the house is a laundrette with washing machine, dryer and iron.


There is no feedback yet. The house has been added to our website in October 2017.

From the owner's guest book:

"We spent a truly wonderful week in this large and well-equipped villa with our 4 kids.
Before our arrival we were a little bit concerned about the closeness of the railway and the highway, but we could hear hardly any noise in the garden. Instead, I would see the road connections a clear asset of this villa. In more remote locations you may have to drive quite a while until you get to your destination."

"This is an excellent find in Tuscany. Location: Close to Cortona town, a drive away from Siena, Montepulciano and other smaller villages, this is away from the noise, yet close enough."

In Italy the tourism tax has been introduced. Each town can decide independently whether to apply this tax.

Where we received confirmation from house owners that they have to ask for this tax, it is written underneath the price table.

Villa in Umbria is an intermediary and as such rents out holiday homes and apartments on behalf of their owners. When you book we will be sending an agreement in which you will find the bank details for the down payment and the final payment.

We know each vacation rental personally and also the owners of all the holiday rentals we have in our portfolio.
