" A stay in Villa La Valiana
At few hundred of meters from the road that links Montepulciano to Cortona, you come on to a country road, which runs along the crest of some wavy vineyards-covered hills. And suddenly, behind the bend, a secret view opens out before your eyes: Tuscany on the left, with its soft green hills, and Umbria on the right, with a blue stroke of the brush…it’s Trasimeno Lake.
Just here rises this elegant villa: with its face of yellow and terracotta colours shined by the morning sun-light that rises upon the lake; and with its brick-turret warm and stately by the tender light of sunset.
Then, you can sight the entrance path, dotted with cypresses; gravel staircases, lined by roses and wild box hedges; white travertine of the main portal; and throughout all the mansion French windows, embroidered by wrought iron, open wide into the vineyard and the garden, intercalated by vases of roses, of lemons, of bouganvilles; and the trees of plums, of apples, of kaki and figs… and these scents that flood in the house.
And to frame the valley, the red roofs of Cortona, the majestic contour of Montepulciano, and the remote outline of Amiata Mount distinctly silhouetted against the blue sky…
I pride myself to born in Tuscany and to live my life in Tuscany. The passion for my homeland and its many gems is what drive me and my family to excel in offering a top quality villa in an enchanting setting. Read more >>
“Villa La Valiana was a wonderful experience for our families vacation this year. The house and grounds are stunning, pool was wonderful in the middle of a vineyard, and the home very comfortable for 6. Cecilia and her family were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcomed and comfortable. As my daughter said it is hard to improve upon perfection.”
“Dearest Cecilia and Family, we feel so sad to leave our beautiful Tuscan home and wonderful family. From the first day our heart were warmed with your hospitality and friendship. You will forever remain in our hearts with love. Thank you for a wonderful week. Paige and Wendell P. – Tom+Angie+Natalie K”
