For those wanting to experience the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun", this is the first time they can have the same experience. After four years of Italian love, Villa Laura has been restored and renamed as Bramasole. As in the novel, this villa was a large brick house, two kilometers from Cortona, completely restored. The American owners fell in love with the region of sunflowers, they have literally been conquered by the Tuscan countryside, rich in vineyards and olive groves, which made them decide to buy an old abandoned house in Cortona. Thanks to the work of local artisans and their craftsman skills handed down from generations, the villa has been restored using antique tiles, wooden beams and terracotta floors.

The driveway to the villa portends a well-kept garden, which offers a wonderful concentration of roses, lavender and plants of various kinds. The garden is completely fenced in and is situated on two different levels. Next to the villa there is a pergola furnished for eating out. Further on, there is a vegetable garden for the use of the guests at the villa.

The swimming pool and outdoor Jacuzzi cheer up the warm summers. A cistern of the 17th century, giving an original effect and historical value, is now an ornamental structure in the garden, while in ancient times it was built as a reservoir to collect the rainwater. The original magic and charm were maintained at Bramasole, despite of the transformation. A mix of antique and contemporary furniture of an interior designer has been cleverly used to maintain the villa's original character.

A rustic farmhouse, adjacent to the villa, completes the rental property. Accommodating 18 guests, this piece of Cortona is ideal for families, large groups of friends or destination weddings. It's the perfect opportunity for guests to step into a movie set and live out their Tuscan dreams.
