Burnt orange walls and a tiled roof, surrounded by olive and fig trees and a pool twinkling in the Italian sun, Villa Camelia is a luxury villa in Tuscany that presents a typically local picture as you approach. A heady scent of rosemary pervades the air, instantly relaxing you. Close to the historic town of Cortona, your first sight of the villa is like stepping back in time.
But step inside, and you’ll find the property is as contemporary and chic as its name. The kitchen is kitted out with top-of-the-range gadgetry, including a coffee machine so you can enjoy your morning pick-me-up just the way you like it out on the terrace. A modern lounge area, with comfy sofas and contemporary art pieces provides a space for you all to relax together in the cool of the house on a summer’s eve. There is also a sleek dining room, with glass table and designer chairs where you can enjoy good food and good company.
Each of the bedrooms is thoughtfully designed with white linens and neutral shades for a cool and airy feel. Wake in the morning to the sound of birdsong floating through windows and the first of the day’s sunshine peeking through, before you throw back the shutters to enjoy the view of the countryside.
The views, it must be said, are what makes this luxury villa near Cortona really special. Whether you’re sharing wine and olives in the evening at the outdoor dining table, or floating in the beautiful swimming pool, those vast green views are ever-present, bringing nature right up to your door.
Whilst Villa Camelia can accommodate up to 6 people, or 8 with the inclusion of the guest house, guests should be aware that the living and dining area of the main house only comfortably accommodate 6.
