This unique and spacious apartment is one complete floor laid out in a series of linked rooms of a very important palazzo nobile in the historic centre of Cortona. Cortona was the setting for Frances Mayes' book "Under the Tuscan Sun" which was later adapted into a hugely successful movie. The apartment has magnificent panoramic views over the vast valley towards Montepulciano and the lake of Trasimeno. Palazzo Diligenti was built between the 16th and 18th centuries however its foundations are Etruscan. Most of the apartment's elegant decor is Neoclassical dating from the end of the 18th and early 19th centuries. Over the past two hundred years it has been owned by three important aristocratic families. The apartment has 3 bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms, 2 kitchens including the original 18th century one, two terraces suitable for dinning and entertaining, two elegant lounges, a grand dining room and library. The apartment also has an ample cantina/storage room on the ground floor. The palazzo is conveniently located only 100 metres from the central piazza of Cortona.
