THE HISTORY

The Cascina is nestled at the foot of the verdant hill of Pergo, right by Cortona; the farmhouse was built in the post-World War II period by godfather Zeffiro, a tenacious farmer willing to prove himself as a skilled bricklayer. The rooms on the ground floor used to house the livestock and also doubled-up as a storage area for tools and fodder; grandfather, grandmother Iris and son Arnaldo (my father) lived in the rooms on the upper floor. I spent the happiest and most carefree days of my life in the green and sunny cascina romping in the park and splashing in the pool. That's why I decided to bring this place back to life hoping to make it the perfect holiday retreat and a unique vacation spot for guests from all over the world. The restoration brought back to light a wealth of farming tools. Restoration work was carried out with the greatest care to preserve the simple and yet cozy and relaxed feel of the rooms.

THE FARMHOUSE

Cascina Zeffiro is rented exclusively to you and your group during your stay. The villa can accommodate up to 11 people (9+2); the rooms are spread over two floors linked by a spiral staircase. The villa is equipped with park, swimming-pool (for exclusive use by guests), private tennis court, billiards room; we also provide free-of-charge mountain bikes and other services.

The first floor (about 370 square feet) is accessed by a private external staircase and consists of a large living room, fully-equipped kitchen, a large master bedroom, one double-bedroom and one single bedroom (an extra bed can be added); the apartment has two bathrooms, one with shower and the other with shower, bath-tub and small balcony.

On the ground floor (accessed from the garden) are a large living room with stone fireplace and dining area, a fully-equipped kitchen, a billiards room, two bedrooms (one double an dome with two twin-beds) as well as a large bathroom with shower.
