Ancient manor house perfect for large groups, located near the Etruscan town of Cortona with private garden and swimming pool. Pets are welcome, Wi-Fi access and large furnished outdoor area available.
Villa Cantagallo has the old-world charm of an ancient manor house. The spacious rooms, fireplaces, arches and exposed stonework combine well with the rustic furnishings chosen by the owners, and will take you back in time when these huge dwellings were the hub of farmhouses.
You will find Villa Cantagallo a short distance from the charming Etruscan town of Cortona (8 km), a destination of great artistic, historical and architectural interest that is definitely worth a visit. You will leave your heart in Cortona, in its paved alleys that climb up the hill, you will immerse yourself in an almost magical atmosphere, as if suspended in time.
Don't forget to dine in one of the countless restaurants and trattorias in the historic centre; our advice is definitely local red wine and a nice Tagliata of Chianina beef!
Until a few years ago the house was the heart of a large farm, then a recent and careful renovation, which the owners carried out with love and care to keep the old features of the villa unaltered, transformed it into a cosy holiday home.
Still next to the house you will find the wine cellar where the owner produces excellent wine (Vino DOC Cortona), which you can taste for free during your holiday.
All around the house you will have at your disposal a large green area equipped with gazebo, table and chairs for your outdoor dinners in company, barbecue, games for children and shaded parking spaces. At the back of the house is the large swimming pool (size 6x12 m, depth 1.20-1.40 m - open from 01st May to 30th September) for your exclusive use. The pool has a wide, completely fenced area that is also suitable to stay in safe company of your pet-friends.
GROUND FLOOR: Kitchen with fireplace, large living/dining room with fireplace, armchairs and sofas, looking onto the swimming pool, double bedroom with an extra single bed, bathroom with shower.

Wir (2 Familien mit insgesamt 7 großen Kindern) hatten 2 wundervolle Wochen. Tiziano und seine Familie waren sehr nett und immer zur Stelle, wenn wir etwas gebraucht haben.
Leider gab es sehr viele Moskitos, aber zum Glück hat das Hsus an den Fenstern Fliegengitter.
Wir sind gut erholt und kommen gerne wieder!
Great place and hosts! At Villa Cantagallo you can feel the vibe of beautiful Tuscan countryside with a great view on Cortona and surrounding fields. The place offers a lot of privacy and is very peaceful. The house is spacious, comfortable and keeps cool despite the hot weather outside. The main area outside is nicely exposed to the sun with the big swimming pool to escape the heat. There is a small fence between the house and the pool which makes it more secure when traveling with small children (like we were). The host and his family are wonderful people and they really make you feel welcome!
Alles geweldig! perfekte ruimte voor grotere groepen/families. Erg behulpzame en aardige host, kwam elke ochtend even langs om het zwembad schoon te maken en te vragen of we nog iets nodig hadden. We kregen zelfs een fles van hun eigen wijn en een schaal verse eieren van hun kippetjes. Enige om te beseffen is dat je echt eigen vervoer nodig hebt, het is ver van alles en lopen of openbaar vervoer is niet handig! Met de auto ben je overal snel en dan heb je een geweldig stukje Italie om je heen. Bedankt voor alles, wij hebben genoten!
Tutto fantastico! Spazio perfetto per gruppi/famiglie numerose. Padroni di casa molto disponibili e gentili, si sono fermati ogni mattina per pulire la piscina e chiedere se avevamo bisogno di qualcos'altro. Abbiamo anche ricevuto una bottiglia di vino di loro produzione e una ciotola di uova fresche dalle loro galline. L'unica cosa di cui rendersi conto è che è necessario un mezzo di trasporto proprio, è lontano da tutto e camminare o usare i mezzi pubblici non è conveniente! Con la macchina si arriva ovunque velocemente e poi si ha un bel pezzo d'Italia intorno a sé. Grazie di tutto, ci siamo trovati benissimo!
It was super nice! We were four adults and four children and we all felt very comfortable. The typically tuscan, very beautiful house would even have had room for another family. The host family was fantastic - always helpful and sympathetic. The large fenced swimming pool, not too deep, is perfect for children. A special highlight was the wine tasting at the host family's winery. Many thanks for that! We already miss it and can very well imagine further holidays in Villa Cantagallo! :)
Jeg kan varmt anbefale dette dejlig sted. Det har været nogle super gode værter, hvor der er god kommunikation. Vi nød særligt ude område med den overdækket terrasse og pool området.
I highly recommend this lovely place. The hosts are super good, good communication. We particularly enjoyed the outside area with the covered terrace and pool area.
Wij verbleven hier eind mei en hebben ontzettend genoten van huis tuin zwembad en de gastvrijheid ongekend! Wijntour geweldig gevolgd met wijn proeverij (echte aanrader).
Mooie dorpjes in omgeving.
We stayed here at the end of May and really enjoyed the house, garden, swimming pool and the amazing hospitality! Great wine tour followed with wine tasting (highly recommended)
Beautiful villages in the area.
A truly authentic experience, with hosts that truly look after you. They will feed you lunch and go through their amazing wines. Which made for a great afternoon. We would all recommend you do the wine tasting. If you want to expierence Italy without the hustle and bustle of a city then this is the villa for you. The traffic was non existent, the locals were kind and the place had a true old world feel. The location of this villa is perfect for Cortona, which you can see at the end of the large pool in the garden. Not only that, but it's easy to get to local cities and mountain towns in tuscany and in umbria. If you can fly to Perugia which is only 50 minutes away it will prove to be an easy drive to the villa. The local shops may be abit pricey for grocies, but there is a Lidl store about half n hour away by the lake, which is worth the trip. With a BBQ, a large pool and lots of dinning areas this is truly a great villa for a large family and friends holiday. The layout of the building also compliments this, with three bathrooms, with bedrooms right next to them. Could not recommend more, miss it already.
