This cottage is simply a dream place – ideal for a couple in search of romance or to rekindle their love batteries ! Or a family – there is a double sofabed in the sitting room.
Stalla Cottage….. sleeps 2
An incredibly romantic, detached cottage with one bedroom + 1 bathroom. It opens onto a private garden with ecstatically beautiful views across the valleys that undulate into a depthless abyss of olive groves, orchards, honey fields of yellows, reds and orange and vineyards, rising up to a clear, deep blue sky, swallows swooping and flitting to the song of nightingales. Perfect for a couple seeking a romantic setting or to rekindle the flames of passion !
Essicatoio Cottage/upper…..sleeps 2

Beautiful gardens all around.
Cerro + Castagna Cottage….sleeps 4/5
…..once upon a time, these were 2 self contained apartments. Now, we only ever rent them as one extremely large apartment with a covered terrace/verandah – seats 4/6. Subsequently, not only are there 2 double bedrooms + 2 bathrooms, there are also 2 sitting/dining rooms, one of which is very large with a fireplace and contains a double sofabed. From the terrace/verandah, there are wondrous panoramic views of fields, meadows, woods and forests, undulating downwards into an infinity of mesmorising colours and textures. This large suite of rooms is perfect for a family or 2 couples, who wish to be private from each other at times. This is a large apartment ! Masses of room for everyone.

Eco-Borgo Luxury is a tiny 17C borgo, in the frazione of Morra, in the Perugia area, converted into 5 holiday cottage suites, 4 of which are detached and standing in their own grounds, 2 of which are at different levels from each other in the same building.
Along a windy country road, snaking higher and higher, the world tumbling below you in a whorl of pastures, valleys, sunflower fields, poppies, hill top mediaeval towns and villages, sweeping towards Cortona, you arrive at Eco-Borgo Luxury.
450/500 mts above sea level and below the snow line.
Set in a 230 hectare, organic farm, Eco-Borgo Luxury is a heavenly place. You can wander on foot to your hearts content, along a sign posted lane, all round the private estate.
Eco-Borgo Luxury is a beautiful hill top village transformed into 5 luxury eco-cottages, each with its own garden, terrace and/or balcony, draped in a beautiful confusion of olive groves, vineyards, chestnut trees and tangled woodlands, overlooking a south facing valley, whose green planes and undulating hills fade into a heavenly infinity.
Ahead is a tree-lined country lane that leads into the heart of the village and the large pool beyond. You pass the Fienile Cottage (large 1.5 bedroom/sleeps 3/5) first, then, the Stalla Cottage (1 bedroom/sleeps 2). Curving round a grove of chestnut trees, you come upon the Mulino Cottage (2.5 bedrooms/sleeps 5). Across a courtyard, is the Quercia suite (2 bedrooms/sleeps 4/5) and Essicatoio (upper floor – 1 bedroom/sleeps 2). Below, and to the side of, the Quercia suite, in the same beautiful, large, stone house, is the Cerro-Castagna Suite (2 bedrooms/sleeps 4/6).
In the middle of the village is the laundry room with washing machines and ironing facilities.
A little further through the village, passing what used to be the Prince’s house, the grand house of the village, as yet, unrestored, you arrive at the path down to the large pool, with wide paved areas, easily enough space for each guest to have lots of privacy.
Beyond the pool, are the huge, organic vegetable gardens and orchards, where you can go each day and pick your own fresh fruit and vegetables. In this area is also the fish pond, which is always full of fish and never artificially stocked ! Bring your own fishing rod, if you wish to while away an afternoon in this heavenly place, breathing in the pure air of this deliriously beautiful environment.
The entire village has been reconstructed using ONLY sustainable ecological methods and is dependent totally on recyclability and solar energy. Nonetheless, having spared no expense, the whole system works in a away that you would not suspect its 100% ecological worthiness. Furthermore, in keeping with its ecological pedigree, it produces its own eco wines and olive oil. Both these plants are within the village and anyone can go and see how they function, to produce some of the finest wines and olive oil, exported all over the world.
Here, everything is pure and sustainable…..energy, water, fish pond, crops, wine and olive oil. However, to live here, you would not suspect that it is any different from any other luxury accommodation, except that the air you breathe, the fruit and veg you pick from the organic land, the fish you catch, the wine you drink (if you buy the farm wine) and the olive oil you drizzle over your organic salads (if you buy the farm olive oil), is all free of pollutants.
