SERVICES

The following services are provided:

Guests will be able to spend relaxing moments in a beautiful fully-fenced garden offering plenty of shady spots, a real oasis at the foot of the hill of Cortona.
The park also offers a playground, hammocks, comfortable benches and an area equipped with table-tennis table and fussball table. Outside table and barbeque for al fresco meals.

A 22 x 13 foot swimming-pool (exclusively reserved for guests) with discreet hedge-screening for your privacy is located just off the farmhouse. The pool (open from May through to October) offers plenty of sunbathing space and lawn and is equipped with sun-beds, parasols, tables and chairs. The pool is cleaned daily and chlorine and pH levels are constantly monitored. Tennis lovers will be happy to find an exclusively reserved private tennis court (fully-fenced and located within the park).

Our tennis court (use is free-of-charge) provides guests with an ideal opportunity to keep fit and unwind. From Cascina Zeffiro guests will be able to go on relaxing walks (both on the plain and on the hillside) in the surroundings of Cortona strolling on shady dirt tracks and century-old paths.

A nice winding track takes to the sanctuary of the Madonna del Bagno. The church, dedicated to the breastfeeding Virgin, has a single nave ending in three 17th century altars and was so named after the sulphurous baths (having a healing effect for scabies and eye diseases) that could once be found in the area. The church was built in 1576 to designs by Luca Berrettini and is testimony to the local devotion to the Virgin Mary. The Virgin is here called to protect a milk-pouring spring to which would resort mothers who could not produce enough milk to feed the babies.

Several trekking trails (of different length and difficulty) run up the hillside and along old partially preserved Roman roads to Cortona; the owners will be more than glad to provide you with detailed maps and guides. Alternatively you may choose to hit the above trails on mountain-bikes that you will be able to rent free-of-charge at the Cascina. Either on foot or by bike the surrounding countryside is absolutely stunning and you will often be able to spot squirrels, wild boar, hares and deers.

Cascina Zeffiro is the ideal destination also for winter stays. The large living room and its old fire-place provide an ideal setting for nice roast meat dinners. Off the living room is a billiards room (picture).

Guests will also be able to do their laundry in a laundry-room equipped with washing-machine, ironing board, clotheshorse, basin (detergents provided).
