Perhaps the most impressive, and most famous villa in Southern Tuscany, the historic Villa Laura, also known as “Villa Bramasole” in the Under The Tuscan Sun, is a breathtaking 10-bedroom air-conditioned estate. Featured in the classic movie Under The Tuscan Sun, Villa Laura is located just below the famous city of Cortona.
This spectacular villa brings luxury to a completely new level – and those guests who routinely stay at five-star hotels quickly discover that there is a whole other level of splendor that they had been missing until they stay at Villa Laura.
The Cortona villa is so spectacular that guests often never leave the grounds as to do anything else pales by comparison! Guest find fluffy bathrobes, slippers, and the finest Egyptian cotton linens, together with fabulous Italian products for each bathroom. There is a housekeeper every morning to tidy, make beds, and ensure that guests find everything is perfect under the Tuscan sun!
Villa Laura History
Lavishly restored in 2010, the 700 square meters Villa Laura traces its history back to Etruscan times, and the gorgeous wine cellar in the villa dates back to 600 A.D. Subsequent generations built and rebuilt the villa and it took its present-day form in the early 17th century.
The estate comprises three structures, the main Villa, the Farmhouse, and Limonaia. Each room is lavishly furnished and has an en suite bathroom. Lavish, stunning, pampered are the operative words at Villa Laura and it is the perfect place for a family holiday, wedding, or corporate event!
Villa Laura is located walking distance from the village of Cortona on an uphill road. This is the perfect villa for guests that enjoy hiking and strolling into town in the morning to enjoy the Tuscan village life!
Villa Laura is perfect in every way and to say that its 10 hectares of gardens are magnificent would be a severe understatement! The splendid lower gardens are believed to have been designed by the legendary Medici family during the Renaissance, and there is a lake that sustains them.
The classic Italian upper gardens surrounding the beautiful 10- by 5-meter swimming pool are well lavishly maintained. There are roses, fruit trees, and organic vegetable gardens which the chef uses for the splendid meals he prepares. There is a lavish outdoor dining area under a gorgeous pergola.
