The Il Giardino degli Ulivi holiday-farmhouse is located at the foot of the hill of Cortona, an ancient town of art and culture of Etruscan origin, that you will find along the road crossing the beautiful Valdichiana valley. Its strategic central position amongst all major historic, cultural and oenogastronomical sites of Tuscany and Umbria makes it an ideal destination for all tourists wishing to enjoy the beauty and the charm of cities such as Siena, Assisi, Gubbio, Perugia, Montepulciano, Florence and many more, all easily reachable both by car and public transportation.
