Enjoy the luxury of a charmingly converted granary barn nestling amongst the vines on Cantina Goccia's working wine farm. This 3-bedroom double story conversion, available to rent on a weekly basis, will comfortably accommodate six people.
It has been sympathetically converted from an original grain store and retains many of the original features and beautiful brickwork windows.In earlier days the vast windows would have been left unglazed to allow air to circulate freely and dry the wheat. Now they allow light to flood into the building, illuminating the living spaces below and the impressive mezzanine level with floorboards made from old wine barrels.
Through the windows you can admire the views towards the nearby hill town of Cortona. Enjoy dining and barbecue's outside in the shaded al fresco dining area with seating for eight.
Private Pool and Garden
Il Granaio and the pool are in the grounds of a manor house which forms the principle home on the Cantina Goccia wine farm. The well maintained grounds are gently terraced with the pool and large lawned area around the pool on the terrace above the house. Swim in the large (14 x 5 m) and beautifully stone lined pool with surrounding loungers and shaded areas. The main house will remain closed when visitors are renting Il Granaio so visitors will have sole use of the gardens and pool.
The property is entirely fenced with security gates, but being situated on a wine and olive farm there are lovely walks and a picnic can be enjoyed in the nearby woodland which forms part of the farm. Being close to the Tuscan Umbrian border this property is ideally positioned to explore nearby Lake Trasimeno, Cortona, Montepulciano, Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Florence, Arezzo and Siena. The closest golf course Valdichiana is only a 15 minute drive. Florence is 1 hour away and Perugia airport only 40 minutes drive.
