With original Tuscan architectural features, ancient olive groves and sweeping views, the Borgo is currently run as a boutique hotel business as well as a private home. Close to the beautiful Tuscan cities of Cortona and Siena, and a short drive to Castiglion Fiorentino through the stunning Val di Chio, it a lovely piece of Italian real estate. Bella Vista is aptly named, perched as it is at the head of one of the most lovely valleys in the Cortona area of Tuscany. The main building is a 300 year old converted farmhouse, providing ample accommodation including 7 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and 2 apartments with double bedrooms on the top floor. You enter the building from a gravelled car park, past tall cypresses, and come into the main reception room, with huge original fireplace in front of you. The building has been sympathetically restored and there is a relaxed and timeless elegance to the place that is so hard to create in a new building. There is a panoramic terrace off the dining area, overlooking the swimming pool on the terrace below and enjoying the splendid views that make the Podere such a special place. Other than the attractive dining room there is an ancient taverna room with old flagstones and a wine tasting area. Close to the main farmhouse, there is an ex-Canonica (Rectory) which offers further elegant accommodation on the top floor and potential for more reception areas on the unrestored ground floor. There are 4 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and 3 reception rooms. Also included in the sale is the freehold ownership of the church, dating to the early 1700s, which is attached to the Canonica. The church is currently still consecrated, and as such private ceremonies could be held there; a great benefit for those seeking to develop the business potential of the hamlet. The local diocese has also given its permission for the church to the deconsecrated, so the possibilities are unlimited. A total of some 5 hectares is for sale with the property.
