Description & Details of MOSES' PALACE CORTONA
...MOSES PALACE---ELEGANT AND HISTORIC PALAZZO----Just a few steps away from the house you will find everything that is wonderful about Italy - the beautiful and lively piazzas, great shopping, bars and restaurants, cultural events, churches and art treasures.

It is a typical 3 floors palace built few century ago,
the street floor has a large entrance/ sitting room and a vast kitchen with dining table,
on the first floor you will find the first double bedroom and a large bathroom with tub,
between the first and second floor there is a small service toilette,
the second floor has one double bed room and a single on.
the third floor has a double bedroom with balcony and a full bathroom with tub and a washer and a dryer.
The interiors are stylish and intimate, featuring richly painted ceilings and fine architectural detail, combined with classic modern Italian furnishings. There is every convenience, including a professional kitchen, large dining room in the old vaulted cantina and separate sitting room where guests can relax, browse books or simply enjoy each other's company.

There is heating throughout for guests' comfort in winter, while in summer natural air flows from the surrounding hills and the natural stone of the house keep it cool and fresh.

Moses' Palace can accommodate up to seven adults in three large airy double bedrooms and one single room, two extra folding beds are available if needed, all beautifully appointed for absolute luxury.

Each room is equipped with television, excellent reading lamps and plenty of big pillows for a good night's sleep.

Two full bathrooms are spacious and well equipped with both shower and bath, plenty of luxurious thick towels a third service bath is also available.


Just metres away from the front door of La Pietra Serena, stands the historic church of San Francesco, construction started by its architect, Brother Elias, in 1245. Elias is one of the most important historical figures of 13th century Cortona, a brilliant and enigmatic man who was a friend and devoted follower of St Francis. He organized the Franciscan order and subsequently was charged with building the churches of San Francesco, in both Assisi and Cortona. The commune of Cortona donated the land for this church, an important ancient site of Etruscan/Roman baths at the very heart of the town. Elias kept the structure of the building simple, in line with the ideals of Francis, but later Baroque additions to the interior have almost hidden the original frescoes and his rose window has been replaced. However, this church is an important link to St Francis and his life in this area, more of which can be seen at Le Celle Hermitage, just outside Cortona, on a spectacular mountain site, It is speculated that Elias actually donated the land to Francis on which Le Celle was built. The remains of Elias lie to this day under the central section of the main apse in the church of San Francesco.

Cortona is in Tuscany, only 2 hours drive from Rome and about an hour from
Florence. Lying close to the border with Umbria makes it very central and easy to access many other great places of interest such as Perugia and Assisi, as well as Siena, Arezzo and Lago Trasimeno. An ancient walled city, Cortona dates back to Etruscan and Roman times, their handiwork still evident in the great stones at the foot of the city walls. Set high above the beautiful Val di Chiana, at more than 500 metres above sea level, it is guaranteed to be cooler in the summer than the surrounding plains, and with its head in the clear sunshine, well above the “nebbia” or white mists typical in late autumn and early winter.

Not only is Cortona famous for its history and stunning location but it is also a vibrant and living city. The people are warm and friendly, with a great pride and
involvement in the services they provide, such as the typical bars and trattorie, specialist artisanal shops, stylish boutiques and a wide variety of delicious local food products and wines.

The arts and culture scene offers an incredibly rich
programme of exhibitions, concerts and shows throughout the year, including mid-summer outdoor musical events with international artists and some
fascinating historical re-enactments, such as the Giostra.

There is plenty for everyone to enjoy in Cortona and with it's compact size everything is easily accessible. For the more active it offers some great walks up to the beautiful Santa Margherita Church and sanctuary, built for the patron saint of Cortona. Further up the hill is the ancient Girifalco fortress, said to be based on the site of a much earlier Etruscan site, from which one can survey spectacular vistas in all directions. Just a few kilometres pleasant walk from Porta Colonia, and sited in a deep and forested river gorge, you will find Le Celle Hermitage, a monastery established by St Francis of Assisi in 1211 for his followers and still used today as a tranquil retreat.

A huge weekly market at the foot of the hill in Camucia held every Thursday provides a great opportunity to not only see and buy the best regional produce and clothing bargains, but also to experience mixing with many of the local residents. Take a pause from browsing to linger over a cappucino, while you munch on a fresh crusty panino filled with the famous “porchetta”, (fragrantly seasoned roast pork) prepared in an instant for you by a cheery stall holder.



From many strategic points around the town you will find spectacular views across the valley to Lago Trasimeno, Montepulciano and Monte Amiato or up to rugged Mont'Egidio, the mountain which has cradled the site of Cortona for millennia.

There are glorious “wine drives” along the roads which radiate from the base of Cortona, to Arezzo, Chiusi, or Montepulciano and all the way to Siena or Florence. There are also some wonderful new grape varieties coming out of the micro-climates of Lago Trasimeno, which will delight wine lovers with their innovative blends and single varietal styles.

As for food, there is everything to tempt your palate, from the typical pastas, such as hand rolled “pici” with a hearty ragu, to seasonal specialities such as artichokes in the Spring and earthy porcini mushrooms or truffles in September and October. There is a huge choice of typical family run trattorie and osterie, as well as fine dining in restaurants with most elegant and stylish ambience.

Frances Mayes books have made Cortona internationally famous in recent years, especially following the release of the hit film “Under The Tuscan Sun”. This film is like a promotional travelogue for the region, showing off the town and glorious surrounding countryside. Cortona enjoys an incredible international mix of visitors year round, including the Italians! A rich and lively tapestry of culture, history, delicious food & wine, together with great natural beauty - Cortona!
