Our view

With Cetona’s piazza within easy reach, and beautiful views of the town, this family villa in Tuscany nestles amid lawns and trees, near enough for practicality, far enough for privacy.

In brief

  • Walk to shops and restaurants
  • Stunning views
  • Private pool

About the villa

Long lawns, mature shrubs, terracotta planters overflowing with flowers, and sleepy terraces in dappled tree shade all contribute to a sense of seclusion at this romantic villa. So the outlook to Cetona, clinging to its hillside, comes as a delightful surprise. Its shops and restaurants are just 2.5km across the little valley, allowing guests to enjoy the amenities while the house remains undisturbed. With a pretty conservatory and spacious, inter-connecting ground floor rooms, La Frazzaia has a cool and airy feel, its walls and high beamed ceiling painted white, with eclectic artworks and pastel cushions providing splashes of colour. The large sitting room and breakfast kitchen each open out to the terrace, furnished for leisurely lunches under the trees, and there is a pergola beside the pool with picturesque rural views. WiFi brings the real world into a charming study on the first floor, where the master suite enjoys an en suite bathroom, stairs to the tower and its own south facing balcony. The villa is within 30km of golf and water sports.



"We had the best time at La Frazzaia! We loved the villa and would like to return next year. We enjoyed the homeliness and decorative style which made the villa a home from home."

About the area

Val d'Orcia & near Cortona

Average weather

The rolling, strangely haunting scenery of the Val d’Orcia is the backdrop to many a Renaissance painting. Its cypress-studded ridges form one of the iconic modern images of ‘classic Tuscany’. The towns are a delight for architecture buffs: the Renaissance palaces of Montepulciano and Pienza; the Romanesque Collegiata in San Quirico d’Orcia, hewn entirely from honey-coloured travertine. Cortona clings to the side of a mountain overlooking the Valdichiana, looking out to Lake Trasimeno and neighbouring Umbria.
