The wonderful private garden sets Casa Bacco apart from many homes in Cortona, as most do not have an outdoor space. Imagine sitting in Casa di Bacco's lovely private courtyard garden enjoying a glass of local Tuscan wine and perhaps some fresh pecorino cheese after a full day of activity. Or, preparing a meal in the fully equipped traditional kitchen to enjoy in the outdoor table with your friends and family. The beautiful garden greets you every time you enter through it's gate. It is located in upper Cortona, a 10 minute walk uphill from downtown Cortona and within the ancient city walls.
Casa Bacco is a spacious and luminous 3 bedroom/ 2 full bathroom home, and spread out over 2 floors. The 3 bedrooms all have queen size beds and the house can accomodate 6 people. The house is decorated throughout with many family heirlooms and interesting antiques. Each room has a distinct flavor of it's own two of the bedrooms offer stunning views over the rooftops of Cortona and down the bucolic Val de Chiana (Chiana Valley) below. The other bedroom looks out over the courtyard garden and the neighboring homes.
Miro, your host and the owner of Casa Bacco, has just recently restored this beautiful home, which was in his family for several generations. He has gone above and beyond to ensure his guests have all the amenities and comforts needed. There is TV, free internet, washing machine, and dishwasher.
Casa Bacco is very inviting and offers a relaxed, cozy atmosphere in which to spend your time. We have personally had the opportunity to stay here for several days, and we loved it, enjoying every moment in the tranquil garden...a true delight!
