In 1995 we bought this old cottage and we have begun to renovate the house trying to maintain as much as possible its original structure, that probably dates back to 15th century, and on our wedding day, July 1997, we came to live in this big for only two people! This cottage is surrounded by nature that is its predominant element and feeling part of it is very gratifying. Later we decided to rent part of it, not only because it was truly too big, but also because we wanted other people to enjoy so much chestnut trees, the deer in the early morning along the path, the sunset of the evening that lights up the contours of the surrounding valleys, the panoramic swimming pool that is accessed through a walkway adorned by lavender in bloom, a variety of multicoloured butterflies, the smell of the mosses, the intense yellow colour of the brooms and the lively red colours of the rosa canina (commonly known as dog rose). In this setting of peace and tranquillity, it is possible to find a perfect harmony between nature and oneself and even easier for those that wish to share with us the experience of the sahaj meditation, in other words spontaneous meditation. Other people before us have lived in this place and we wonder if they were aware of how fortunate they were to live in such a wonderful place as we are, a magic place that satisfies all senses.

An Amazing Holiday
We had the most wonderful time staying at Corsetta’s property in the heart of Tuscany / Umbria. The setting was perfect for our family - a sparkling pool, stunning gardens / grounds, plenty to keep the kids entertained, and well equipped and beautiful villas. Corsetta was the most wonderful host - giving plenty of really helpful suggestions for our stay. The views are unparalleled, and the location, which is quite rural, was just so peaceful and tranquil. We are already planning our next trip back there!
Very special holiday experience !
Beautiful location, very nice holiday cottage and exceptional friendly and helpful hosts ! And as it's Italy most of the time good weather. Really something to recommend.
Fantastic view !!
We had a wonderful time in Villa Santa Maria, our children enjoyed the pool so much, and we enjoyed the tranquillity of the place. The hosts were really nice and helpfull.
Luogo di benessere
Una settimana rilassante e rigenerante ottimo la vista buona la piscina, i proprietari gentili e disponibili addirittura abbiamo meditato insieme. Quindi siamo ritornati corpo e anima ripuliti.
Attractions:The Valley, a mixture of art, history and nature offers a glimpse of that Tuscany and Umbria which are only partly known and where there is no mass tourism, where peacefulness andenjoyment of life follow the rhythms of nature. It happens that the tourist who goes in search of Arezzo, Monterchi, Sansepolcro e Caprese Michelangelo will follow the same route as Piero della Francesca in the journeys he made for his work. The famous renaissance painter, who came from this area, is a rare case of a great artist who continued to live and work in the place where he was born. His major works are in Arezzo, Sansepolcro and Monterchi. Caprese Michelangelo is where the great artist Michelangelo was born. In this area there is also one of the most beautiful mediaeval village of Italy, Anghiari , and not far from Arezzo there is Cortona , an incredible etruscan city with such an incredible view that reaches the Trasimeno lake.valtiberina : experience the warm evenings, abundant vineyards and olive groves, welcoming people, medieval hill-towns and gastronomic delights.
