Casale l’Antico Carro, B&B in Cortona, originally was an old farm, probably part of a larger monastery complex, which had been built in the valley surrounding the hill of Cortona. As evidenced by some stones that have been found during the renovation works, the original complex probably dated back to the 17th century. In the past the country house has been a dwelling of farmers and land agents who were involved in wheat threshing, grape harvest and cultivation of the land, a typical country estate where farm machinery and agricultural implements were stored, farm animals were bred and fields were cultivated.
Owned by the Caprini family since 1965 and opened in July 2012, the B&B of Cortona Casale l’Antico Carro has been perfectly renovated in classic Tuscan style by keeping its original architectural features intact. The 6 rooms are large, finished in good taste and equipped with all modern conveniences.
