Villa Ivana is an historic residence dating back to 1600, it has become, thanks to recent restoration, a prestigious Italian villa in which modern accessories blend with original recycled materials and local architectural features conferring warmth and typical Tuscan atmosphere to the rooms. Antique furniture, precious tapestries, elegant windows and doors, original chandeliers and accessories, painted ceilings and splendid terracotta-tiled floors dress the more than 1000 Square Meters of the villa. The ground floor is dominated by an imposing living room with decorated vaulted ceilings and frescoed walls, with an antique billiards table. On the upper floors are the intimate, panoramic bedrooms characterized by romantic four-poster beds and served by splendid cosy bathrooms in inlaid marble. The completely fenced-in park that surrounds Villa Ivana covers a flat area of about 6000 Square Meters, most of which is planted with grass with a large variety of centuries-old plants and trees, pots of lemon trees around the villa and a lush row of oleander bushes that border the paved drive leading to the main entrance. The large gazebo surmounted by stone columns, located a few steps from the big swimming pool and from the many entrances to the villa, is furnished with marble tables and chairs for relaxing and dining al fresco, with the complicity of the silent garden embellished by the gentle setting of the Tuscan hills. At the entrance to the property, just after the main gate and the tree-lined access drive, is a large parking area. The very elegant rooms on the ground floor, which cover more than 400 square meters in area, are further embellished with light fitments so as to highlight the Villa’s typical arches and vaulted ceilings with their exposed beams. In addition, the elegant antique terracotta paving enhances the warmth and the evocative and emotive atmosphere of the Villa. By means of an internal staircase in muted sandstone and behind stylish doors, one can gain access to the frescoed rooms of the first floor. The great windows give a wonderful view of the garden and of the hilltop of Cortona. In times of yore and more recently, the rooms of the first floor were used for important gala suppers of both princes and presidents including Italy’s seventh president, Sandro Pertini. WEDDINGS AND EVENTS Thanks to its large indoor and outdoor spaces, Villa Ivana is a perfect location for your Tuscan vacation as well as for the organization of cultural events, reunion of groups and families and for destination weddings (being equipped with a private chapel) and other ceremonies, to spend in a prestigious and enchanting setting. The delightful panoramic view of the hilltop of Cortona and the Villa’s flower beds ablaze with colour will give your wedding in Tuscany that romantic and elegant touch, which can also include using small torches along the tree-lined cobblestoned avenue after sunset. The park is further enhanced with a large well-designed swimming pool around which it is possible to have pre-dinner drinks, a cocktail bar and buffet, not to mention an evening of fun and enjoyment for one’s guests. THE SURROUNDING AREA Completing the programme for an unforgettable holiday in Tuscany are the many places of artistic interest within easy reach: art cities like Siena, Arezzo and Perugia and picturesque little towns (Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Castiglione del Lago, Radda and Gaiole in the Chianti area) as well as enchanting health spas.More
