About the Hotel
Just an hour or so southeast of Florence, the magnificent medieval village of Cortona provides an ethereal setting for Villa Marsili. This exquisite establishment is one of the town's most elegant residences, and a favorite of celebrities such as Diane Lane and Josh Brolin, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Geoffrey Rush. Villa Marsili is truly an enchanting Italian retreat, boasting refined lounges and frescoed bedrooms whose atmosphere retain the grace of the building's original historic character. From public sitting rooms, views embrace the scenic pergolas of the outdoor gardens, and from your elegantly furnished accommodations you can gaze across the gentle rolling hills of Valdichiana.
Soothing landscapes and warm hospitality are hallmarks of Tuscany. You will find this and so much more in Cortona, which boasts an amazing wealth of art treasures. Every street and piazza brings a cultural delight, from the centrally located Duomo to the 15th-century San Niccolo church. Along with olive groves and Etruscan tombs, the region also yields traditional ceramics, golf, horseback riding and tennis. Experience it all at Villa Marsili.
