Second Pool Inside the Villa
Villa de Michelangioli boasts an indoor swimming pool in addition to the outdoor one. This inside pool has a counter-current facility with a whirlpool and an accompanying sauna.

History of Villa de Michelangioli Cortona
Villa de Michelangioli was originally built in the 18th century as a “Leopoldine” farmhouse. This style imitated the country-houses of the Florentine nobility. The family lived upstairs while the ground floor had the storing facilities and stables. It took almost two years to restore and rebuild this large farmhouse into the attractive residence you find today. It’s obvious how the owners lavished loving attention to every detail.
