Photos and Description of Villa Sole - "Under the Tuscan Sun" is a stunning 17th Century villa near Cortona - sleeps 20

Villa Sole is a beautiful 17th Century villa estate, situated just a few minutes from the city of Cortona. The villa sleeps up to 20 guests in three buildings - The main Villa (sleeps 10), an adjacent farmhouse (sleeps 8) and a Limonaia (sleeps 2). The villa has been renovated to a very high standard and in addition to all the luxury level services, which you would expect in a villa of this standard also provides a number of lovely touches such as fluffy bathrobes, slippers, the finest Egyptian cotton linens and Italian products in all bathrooms. A welcome hamper of local products is also waiting for all guests on arrival. For the young at heart there are ipod docking stations, cinema room, games room with pool table and board games and an outdoor ping pong table. The villa is fully air conditioned and has wifi internet. Villa Sole is surrounded by 8 acres of lovely gardens with private pool, Jacuzzi and even a lake with ducks! Villa Sole is very close to Cortona where there are a number of top restaurants, however the villa can be rented with a number of catering options, food can even be prepared and delivered to your door.The villa also has its own pizza oven. Cortona has become increasingly popular in recent years thanks to the book "Under the Tuscan Sun" by Frances Mayes and the film with the same title based loosely on the book. Before being restored Villa Sole was used as Villa Bramasole in the 1993 film starring Diane Lane and Raul Bova (there is a glimpse of the villa in the trailer for the film!)
