     Description 


Il Rifugio... where you will enjoy privacy, serenity and spectacular
views. Unwind in this 17th century farmhouse on fifty-six acres of
gardens, fields, woodlands and centuries-old terraced olive groves.

Il Rifugio is comprised of a seventeenth century stone farmhouse and
56 acres of private land. The house is situated on the edge of an
ancient olive grove located above the village of Montanare in the
community of Cortona in Tuscany, Italy. Cortona is just 10 minutes
away by car.

Il Rifugio has two charming buildings: one is the main house, which
has ten rooms plus 3-1/2 bathrooms, and the other is a small
cottage, a few steps from the kitchen, with a laundry room and a
bedroom with a bathroom.

Upstairs in the main house are four bedrooms: a master bedroom with
a double bed, en suite bathroom and dressing room; a second bedroom
with a double bed and en suite bathroom; two bedrooms that share a
bathroom, each with single beds that can be made up as doubles; and
a common sitting room with a fireplace.

Downstairs is a large kitchen with a fireplace, separate walk-in
pantry, dishwasher, five-burner stove with two ovens, a
refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, American coffee machine,
enough pots and pans for cooking gourmet meals, and an outdoor pizza
oven.

Also downstairs is a half bath, sitting room, formal dining room and
a living room with a large fireplace fitted with a cast-iron wood-
burning stove.

The cottage has a laundry room with a washer, dryer and deep sink,
and a bedroom with two single beds and an en suite bathroom.

Il Rifugio can accommodate up to twelve people comfortably, with
ample space for privacy.

There is plenty of garden furniture and a pergola on the spacious
stone terrace for eating or relaxing outdoors, with spectacular
views of the surrounding olive grove and the rural valley below.
