We are excited to share that we will be offering two trips up for bid during the live auction at our Light the Way gala on October 26! Both spectacular destinations are presented by Sojourn Ventures and are stunning.
The wonderful private garden that greets you every time you enter Casa Bacco sets this home apart from many homes in Cortona, as most do not have an outdoor space. Imagine relaxing in the private courtyard with a glass of local Tuscan wine and some fresh pecorino cheese, or preparing a meal in the fully equipped kitchen to savor with your friends and family in the outdoor garden.
Casa Bacco is a spacious and luminous home that spreads out over 2 floors. The 3 bedrooms all have queen size beds and the house can accommodate 6 people. Two of the bedrooms offer stunning views over the rooftops of Cortona and down the bucolic Val de Chiana below. The other bedroom looks out over the courtyard garden and the neighboring homes.
Miro, your host and the owner of Casa Bacco, has restored this beautiful home, which was in his family for several generations. He has gone above and beyond to ensure his guests have all the amenities and comforts needed. Casa Bacco is very inviting and offers a relaxed, cozy atmosphere in which to spend your time! Airfare not included.
