Description of buildings

Cortona Luxury Hotel is in the town centre. It’s situated inside a building dating back to the 1400s: the perfect place to breathe and embrace history.


This hotel develops over 5 floors for a net saleable area of 1500 sq.m. It includes communal spaces (indoors and outdoors) and 33 rooms of different types and sizes .


Communal spaces

The entrance on the ground floor is through a hall with an adjacent boutique followed by the reception room, a restaurant, the kitchen, and a beautiful courtyard (about 40 sq.m large), with an outdoor living area where to relax and enjoy the palazzo’s unique atmosphere. This floor also includes a bathroom, a toilet room for guests, and two technical rooms.


On the first floor, there is another spacious restaurant and a living room/bar giving access to a 42 sq.m terrace, perfect for enjoying breakfast in the summer.


The second floor houses an airy reading room embellished with walls with decorations and a striking stone frame of an ancient fireplace, and a 14-sq.m terrace overlooking the courtyard.


The rooms

The 33 rooms are spread over several floors. All of them are unique and well-presented, creating a cosy and elegant ambience. Moreover, they are furnished with antique furniture adding a touch of authenticity and history.

To meet customers’ needs, the rooms are of different types and sizes, from intimate single rooms to spacious double rooms or luxury suites.


The hotel’s added value is the suite: a space designed to create an unforgettable experience in terms of comfort, privacy, and romanticism.

This suite is located on the hotel’s tower overlooking Cortona and its surroundings and includes a beautiful and strategically positioned whirlpool bath for unforgettable moments of relaxation.


The area is calculated on the basis of the net floor area including interior partitions and increased by 10% for load-bearing walls. 

The terraces and the courtyard areas are calculated separately and should be added to the total area.


State and finishing

Cortona Luxury Hotel is in excellent condition. The fascinating vaulted, coffered or wood-beamed ceilings on the higher floors, the décors, and the original terracotta floors reveal stories of past centuries.

Every room has unique details and is furnished carefully, combining antique furniture with modern amenities to preserve the palazzo’s historical atmosphere.


A 15th-century fresco representing the Mother and Child seated on a throne, surrounded by eight saints (four standing and four kneeling), is also hidden in a quiet nook of the building. This work of art is attributed to a local painter belonging to the circle of Bicci di Lorenzo. However, a few analyses highlighted elements hinting at Masaccio, another 15th-century artist. This painting depicts Saint Michael the Archangel, the ancient protector of Cortona, on the Virgin’s left-hand side. This historical reference dates back to before Saint Mark was proclaimed patron saint of the city on 25 April 1261. That year, the Ghibellines, who had been removed from the Guelph faction two years earlier, returned to Cortona.

Besides being a work of great artistic value, this fresco is a fascinating fragment of the local history.

External areas

The numerous outdoor areas, which are rare in historic centres, make Cortona Luxury Hotel even more special. They include the fascinating living space in the courtyard, the enchanting terrace on the first floor, where to have breakfast while enjoying the view over the courtyard, and two additional terraces, one overlooking the internal courtyard and the other, the valley and Tuscany’s hills.

The courtyard’s living area is furnished with sofas and armchairs, whereas the terrace on the first floor features tables where to have breakfast while breathing in the fresh morning air.

Use and potential uses

Cortona Luxury Hotel has enormous potential, thanks to its excellent position near some of Tuscany’s and Umbria’s most beautiful cities, such as Florence, Siena, Arezzo and Perugia, which can be easily reached by car or train.

Cortona is famous for its medieval architecture, frescoes and museums, attracting art and history lovers. Its charm has even been enhanced by the popularity of the book and film, “Under the Tuscan Sun”, which brought further interest and curiosity towards this location.

Moreover, this town is surrounded by beautiful countryside with vineyards, olive groves, and rolling hills, providing unforgettable landscapes, and attracting tourists looking for a relaxing and authentic experience.
