Reminiscent of a countryside hamlet, Novole is comprised of a church, two separate Cotronei cottages and the main house (farmhouse), nestled in the green hills on the border between Umbria from Tuscany near Cortona.
The Cotronei property dates from 1400 when it was a Franciscan convent. From 1800 it was used as a farm, and from 1960, an agritourism. In keeping with the original style and atmosphere, we have recently renovated the agritourism, making it the perfect retreat for couples and families.
