La Rocca delle Valecchie

We cannot remain indifferent when we arrive in front of the Rocca. A building of the highest historical value, powerful but at the same time slender and elegant, which still retains all its ancient charm. It was born as a fortified building in the 12th century and is located just 10 minutes by car from the splendid art city of Cortona and from Lake Trasimeno; it is located in the countryside, immersed in the lush greenery of the woods and olive groves and is easily accessible.

La Rocca, for an area of ​​about 407 square meters on four floors, has an almost unique architectural layout, as it consists of two leaning towers, built in different eras, and connected to each other. Over the centuries, the defensive purpose for which it was built failed, and at the end of the 18th century it became a self-sufficient farm. In fact, all the other small buildings and rooms for agricultural use date back to this period, such as the warehouse for grain or the cellars for producing and storing wine and oil. At present La Rocca is divided as follows: in the basement we find the cellars; on the first floor, which is accessed via an elegant external staircase, a large entrance hall, a living room, a double bedroom, a bathroom and a laundry room; on the second floor a dining room with fireplace, a kitchen, two double bedrooms and a bathroom; finally, on the third floor, we find a double bedroom with bathroom and a very large room perfect for use as a library or cinema room. All around the main building we find many smaller buildings: two adjoining rooms used in part as a tavern (42 sqm), lemon house (35 sqm). There is an outbuilding on two floors with a double garage on the ground floor (78 sqm), tool shed (36 sqm), storage room (21 sqm), technical room for the swimming pool with a bathroom inside (18 sqm). Finally a splendid swimming pool of 6 X 12 meters equipped with hydromassage. Externally, the property is surrounded by a beautiful park of 1.6 hectares, completely fenced and equipped with a double driveway.
