Every month Arezzo hosts a lovely Antique Fair and twice a year the medieval jousting festival La Giostra del Saracino.

Cortona is about 30km away, and is ideal for those passionate about history and culture. The city is an authentic location for immersing yourself into Italian life just as Frances Mayes represents in both her bestseller and famous film Under The Tuscan Sun. Tourists today still flock to Villa Bramasole to take a peak at the villa which inspired the American author to write her book. The University of Georgia also has their study abroad campus in Cortona due to the city’s strong appeal to foreigners.

    The fact that this gorgeous place is *reasonably* affordable is astounding. I mean, it’s beyond my means but at least it’s not over a million! Beautiful. Just beautiful.

    Doesn’t everyone want a villa in Tuscany? And this one is so inexpensive that I don’t see it staying on the market for very long. It would be a grand adventure.

    just last night I watched Under the Tuscan Sun, thinking of how I am always thinking of a 2nd place in England or France. my sister said, what about Italy?
    this gives me hope, it is a lot of house for the price!

    These typical farmhouses are all over the countryside in Tuscany, but few of them are in such good repair. And most don’t have foosball tables, either! It is definitely reasonable, when a tiny one-bedroom in one of the hill towns goes for around 700,000 euro.

    Fabulous! I would love to buy this home and live in Italy!

    This place is astonishing…I am not sure how much 16th century remains, but it doesn’t matter…this is like a movie set, and I agree with Jekl, out of my reach, but still, so much nicer than many at twice the price here. I wouldn’t change a thing. I wonder how receptive the Italians are to American immigrants.

    OH YES! Yes! All of it….I love it. I want it. Seeing this, at this price, makes me regret every bad financial decision I’ve ever made all over again. If only.

      Not really. They are usually very small. It amazed me because those little kitchens really get a workout. People generally but good for their meals each day. Even the refrigerators are small.

    It’s my dream. I look at property in Italy all the time. I love Tuscany but the houses are usually outside my budget. Publix is much more affordable and warmer!

    Thank you, Kelly, for posting this house in Italy. This is what old-house-dreams are made. Love the countryside.

    This house is actually nothing special in Italy. There are homes like this all over Italy and for cheaper too. Maybe it’s because I live in Italy but I am not moved by this one! All Italian countryside homes look the same to me. Very cookie cutter–they have cotto floors, beamed ceilings, and the same stone work. I’d pass on this one.

    Que Bella!

  20. I came across this website by accident on the same day that I finally managed to buy this house. Today is april 14th 2020 and all the comments here are from 2018 but anyway I bought it, with my wife, at a final price about 20% lower than the one above having first visited it on July 17th 2019, which gives you an idea how long things can take in Italy. The reality in large part corresponds to the photos however there were various, and typically Italian, problems and complications such as it never being registered as a “civile abitazione”, that is to say as a house fit to live in by someone who is not a farmer etc etc…. Anyway it will all sort itself out in the end. I agree with the above comments: our new house is beautiful!
