I’m constantly amazed by the effort and taste that people put in renovating old houses in Italy. There have been several examples on the blog recently and this led Angie to contact me and present her own place: Villa Chic.
Angie and her husband are French and they decided to create rental homes just like those they kept on looking for, years ago, when they fell in love with Tuscany.
A great location for culture and shopping!
Villa Chic is located 15 kilometres from the historic center of Cortona, in Tuscany which is between Siena and Arezzo. It’s also not far from beautiful Umbria if you want to explore another region.
Recognising a true Parisian here, Angie points that there are many fashion outlet stores 40 minutes drive away (Prada, Gucci, Fendi, Valentino, Roberto Cavalli, Ferragamo, Armani,Todd’s, Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, Dior, Burberry, Stella Mc Cartney, Alexander Mc Queen, Lanvin etc….. !!!!
The outside style of the buildings has been for the most part preserved but the inside has been entirely re-organised according to a minimalist and comfortable combination. The accommodations present design furniture mostly italian, as well as furniture designed by the owners.
The property offers 8 sleeps in 4 bedrooms, 3 in the house and 1 in the independent guest house, also with its own private pool. Both houses can be rented separately. All bedrooms have their own bathroom and air conditioning.
The whole garden is comprised of olive trees, cypresses, fig trees and rosmary, personalized with different kinds of stones.
Everything has been thought of to make your stay easier
I love that Angie had thought of providing pool towels and even a bathrobe. There are also regular cleanings inside and out during your stay. All of this is top notch service for a villa rental managed directly by the owners.
At least one high baby chair and one baby cot are available per each villa, for free (on request at the booking).
Additionally, they can offer an early check-in and a late check-out if it’s possible. Now, THAT is very rare!
The cancellation policy is however stricter than what I’ve seen before so do check it to see if that suits you.
You can see from the photos that a lot of love and care has been put in creating this house. The garden will probably be more beautiful next year when plants have grown even more so do book thee this place for you and your family.
