A Stately Retreat
Opulence awaits at every turn in the Villa Felice, an elegant estate that lies outside the hilltop village of Cortona, Tuscany. Manicured gardens, spacious terraces and the surrounding views of rolling hills blanketed by vineyards all add to the particularly Tuscan feel of this country retreat. Old and new designs are thoughtfully blended throughout the common areas and bedrooms: exposed wood beams and stone floors showcase the original structure while modern upgrades like a fully-equipped kitchen and air conditioning are greatly appreciated. Hues of gold, yellow and terracotta meet stately paintings, tapestries and statues to create a vibrant interior. While the manor could be mistaken for a museum with its eye-catching marble pieces, ornate light fixtures and dazzling artwork—plush couches, modern bedding and ample amenities will make you feel “at home.”
The property is comprised of two buildings: the main Villa and the Farmhouse. Between the two of them there are enough beds to comfortably sleep 20 people.Spectacular Stays
