Estate Felice

Cortona, Tuscany, Italy
Sleeps 20:  $2,324 - $4,354 / night
  • 10 Bedrooms

  • 10 Bathrooms

    (10 Ensuite)

  • Pool

This luxury estate has plenty to bring a smile to guests’ faces, from its manicured gardens and broad terraces, the perfect spot for a glass of wine with a view of the countryside, to a safety-fenced swimming pool surrounded by sunny terraces and loungers. Built by Cortona businessman Felice Fierli in the early 1800's, the name Villa Felice - "happy" in English - aptly describes the wonderful atmosphere of the place.

Two buildings make up the Villa Felice Estate: an elegant main villa and a charming converted farmhouse known as the Casa where the estate's wines were pressed and bottled. While the main villa is more opulent, both have sun-dappled, well-appointed living and dining areas that flow into each other. Though many of the original architectural features remain—think vaulted brick ceilings, flagstone floors made with tiles from the Via Appia, and exposed wooden beams—the kitchens are fully equipped with modern conveniences.

The two-villa arrangement has attracted the attention of recent visitors who were having big family gatherings; they like the idea of a house for the kids, and an entirely separate, quiet house for the adults, who can relax with a book or a drink in the peace and tranquility of the main Villa. Sitting in the wonderful first floor (piano nobile) salon in Villa Felice, you are still within easy hearing distance of the pool and Casa Felice, in case the kids get a little too crazy. The peace and quiet is highly restorative!

There are five bedrooms in Villa Felice, the main house, and five in Casa Felice, the farmhouse; all ten have double beds and en-suite bathrooms. The villa’s master bedroom also has its own lounge area, and a second bedroom with its own private entrance could be used as a honeymoon-style retreat within this vacation rental.

Spend your holiday relaxing on the estate or exploring this fascinating part of Italy. The property is only minutes away from the nearest winery, a newly opened golf and spa resort, and Cortona, the lovely hilltop town with a medieval heritage and a more recent starring role in the film Under the Tuscan Sun. Other sights within an hour’s drive include Lake Trasimeno, Montepulciano, Perugia and Siena, all of which make wonderful day trips.
