These farmhouses are referred to as "colonica". This Colonica is in the green and beautiful rolling countryside right on the Tuscany Umbria border, not far from Cortona, and not far from Perugia, Gubbio, Assisi, and many fascinating hill towns.

If you want to be able to truly experience central Italy, this is an authentic and comfortable home to do so from or, just stay here and live the Italian country life.
The Sorbello castle sits across the valley on the opposing hill in direct view of the farmhouse. Here sharecropping farmers lived and worked until the 1960's.
The "colonica" is built of rock with thick walls which keep the house cool in the summer.
A wonderful place to stay from June through September. The house is available in May, but May can be a bit chilly.
Easily reached on 1 chilometer of farm road from the statale road connecting Mercatale di Cortona and Umbertide. Easy to find on Google Maps, near Le Capabnine Restaurant on the Tuscan-Umbrian border.
We look forward to welcoming you to a truly rural experience.
The colonica is surrounded on three sides by cultivated fields and pastures, and from above by Oak and Chestnut forest; it is a wonderful area for walks, hiking, and mountain biking. There is a large garden space with table and chairs,the lawn borders on the cultivated field.
