Located in Tuscany, Italy near the medieval city of Cortona, the Casale Girasole sleeps at least 6 adults with three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one large and one small), and large common room with dining area and kitchen space. The farmhouse was completely renovated several years ago using original materials and maintaining the charming and rustic style (wooden-beamed ceilings, original tile & wooden floors). Furnishings have been selected with great care and in excellent taste.Bordering on a small vineyard and agricultural fields of tobacco and sunflowers, the surrounding countryside is ideal for walking and biking. Located on a private road only a few minute walk from the village center, the house is secluded without being isolated.
