The space

L' antico lavatoio' ( the old Laundry) is a single home , a little gem in the heart of the old city ,on the medieval walls of Cortona, between Porta Montanina and church of San Nicolò where you can admire the famous paintings of Luca Signorelli and Severini.

We did a luxury restoration inside the home with the stucco veneziano plaster on the walls, a decorated resin floor, ceiling made of bleached cedar. On the ground floor have the living room with two sofà, wood-burning stove, a table with chairs, american kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher, electric oven, freezer, fridger, toaster, blender, etc. From the living room you can enter a small courtyard with plants and flowers where there's a table and chairs in " ferro battuto" . On the ground floor we have also a storage space and the main bathroom with a double shower. A staircase leads to the bedroom with a large wardrobe in plexiglas and cedar and a small bathroom decorated with Bisazza mosaics. The double bed has all linen provided as well as towels and all utensils for the kitchen are included and of high quality.
Cleaning is included: once a week for three hours.

An ideal accommodation for professionals (professors and PhDs) working at or visiting the local branch of University of Georgia or the University of Alberta in Ossaia, and for students' families.

Our accommodation is also perfect for photography lovers who are interested in Cortona on the Move, the INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY which is held in Cortona from 12 July to 30 September 2018. #cotm2018

Novella's villa in Cortona became our "home away from home" for a month this summer. It was perfect for the two of us (open loft plan, perfect for a couple)! The villa is located in "Il Poggia", a very quiet & residential neighborhood at the very top of the Tuscan hill town. The …
