Casa Bellavista sits on a hilltop near Cortona, in the hills between Siena and Perugia and south of Arezzo. The area has many picturesque towns and villages with medieval and Renaissance architecture and vestiges of the pre-Roman Etruscan civilisation, as well as superb wines and cuisine.
You can reach Cortona and the Valdichiana plain in 15 minutes, and Arezzo, the regional capital with its Roman arena, in half an hour. Siena, the jewel of Tuscany whose spectacular centre is a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a 40-minute drive. Wine buffs can follow tours in Montepulciano and Chianti.
Our large garden has a wonderful variety of landscapes to delight the senses, from roses and olive trees to a real pine wood. It offers a stunning panoramic vista for 80 km across the valley, and an outdoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi. This idyllic space can be reserved for weddings if you also stay at Casa Bellavista.
At Casa Bellavista we believe in reducing our C02 emissions. We installed solar panels that cover all our energy needs, including heating in winter, and we have a short supply chain with local producers, mostly organic, for fresh produce. We compost, recycle, change linen and towels every three days and use refillable toiletries with environmental certification.
