Environmentally Conscious Elegance

A perfect blend of luxury, sustainability, and Tuscan charm. This exquisite stone villa is located near the picturesque town of Cortona and the tranquil border of Umbria. The owners and visionaries behind this project are Lilia and Francesco. They set as their goal, to build a fully sustainable house, surrounded by nature, in a beautiful location that feels light, airy, and bright and where good energy flows. 

It took them 10 years and now the villa, a masterpiece of sustainable architecture, blends effortlessly into its lush surroundings. It champions eco-friendly practices, utilizing rainwater harvesting and solar energy to power its air conditioning, ensuring your stay is both comfortable and conscientious.
