Tuscookany villa Bellorcia
Bellorcia is the newest addition to Tuscookany and is a grand Tuscan villa, renovated with impeccable taste. Tuscookany offers exclusively selected weeks in Bellorcia. After only one year Bellorcia has achieved "excellent" reviews on Trip Advisor. This is a fully staffed villa with a Guest relations manager, Chef, kitchen and villa staff. This luxurious villa, with its very colorful contemporary style, has a 360-degree spectacular view of the surrounding typical Tuscan landscape with rolling hills, wheat fields and cypress trees. It is situated in the breathtaking Val d'Orcia which was classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2004 Bellorcia is only (10 minutes) from Cetona elected as a "I Borghi piu Belli d'Italia". Bellorcia is everything you have ever imagined Tuscany to be and an ideal location for your stay in Tuscany and possible cooking classes in Italy. Looking out each window in the villa is like looking at a framed painting of Tuscany.
You are welcome to come alone, or as a couple or friends and family travelling together and meet other guests coming from all over the world who will by the end of the week be friends forever. You can choose to join the cooking lessons or come as a non participant and just enjoy the villa and the beautiful surroudings and join the rest of the group at meals.
The villa has 8 double bedrooms, each exquisitely decorated and each in a different style. Walls are covered in a light lime-wash finish with colorful touches, giving the rooms an Italian rustic chic appearance. All bedrooms have adjoining stylish marbled bathrooms with either a bath or a shower.
The large private outdoor area includes a magnificent solar heated negative edge pool, a hot tub and an outdoor dining area on a beautiful terrace leading out from the kitchen and living room. A second terrace is the ideal spot for sundowners or for the break during the Italian cooking classes. Close by lies a vegetable garden which offers an abundance of fresh vegetables and herbs in season for use during the cooking classes in Italy.
Our in house staff offer full accommodation services including daily cleaning of the rooms and laundry, buffet breakfast, all lunches and dinners except on the one free day. Our Guest relations manager can assist you with any travel assistance, transfer and recommendations of things to see in the area to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
