Ginetta's Tours

Country Inn in Tuscany

Charming and newly renovated one and two-bedroom apartments for rent on a weekly basis in a tastefully restored, grand, 15th century building converted into a cozy, SAFE, family-run INN that conveniently includes a first class restaurant. This sumptuous INN is located on the border of the gorgeous provinces of Tuscany and Umbria on a hill overlooking the lush Italian countryside, making it is a perfect base for day trips. The locale is situated among some lovely walled villages with great restaurants and shops, not far from beautiful Lake Trasimeno. The owners also speak fluent English to help you in your touring, and are always there if you need them, since they reside on the premises. There is even an outdoor swimming pool with beautiful views all around it.

The Chianti district, picturesque Lake Trasimeno, and the walled medieval hilltowns of Perugia, Todi, (where the movie Life Is Beautiful was made) Pienza (where The English Patient was filmed) Cortona, (where Under the Tuscan Sun was filmed) Siena, Assisi, Orvieto, Montepulciano, etc. etc. are all within easy driving distance. It is a beautiful, scenic and historic area– the Renaissance artwork and Etruscan ruins are everywhere! Not to mention wineries, abbeys, and fabulous street markets…

For your travel arrangements: Rome itself is only 2 hours away by car, and Florence only about 90 minutes. The train station is only a few minutes drive, where express trains to Rome, Florence and Venice run regularly should you decide to leave the car in the large parking lot at your door.

The units for rent are spacious, quaint and newly designed 2 –room and 3-room apartments with tall shuttered windows opening out onto gorgeous views of rolling farm hills with fields of sunflowers in summer, and red poppies in spring. Each has a fully equipped kitchenette with natural exposed brick and tiled floor, and table, chairs, and futon or sofabed with satellite tv in the livingroom. The bedroom has a kingsized bed, parqueted hardwood floor, and plenty of closet space. The prettily tiled bathroom (with its own, plentiful, hot water tank) has shower, sink and vanity with great new lighting, and also new plumbing for toilet and bidet. All utilities are included in summer, and heat is metered for individual usage during the cooler months.
