How to Rent the Villa from “Under the Tuscan Sun” movie
Many people have dreamt of moving to Tuscany or owning a home there.
Much of the increased interest came to those from watching the 2003 Diane Lane classic, Under the Tuscan Sun. Lane’s character buys a lovely villa while on vacation in Tuscany, hoping to change her life after a divorce.You can experience living that famed movie… at least for a little while – because you can rent none other than the Villa Bramasole, officially known as Villa Laura.
The Villa Laura is actually located in Cortona, Italy and in 2010, the owners of Villa Laura completed a four-year long renovation.The landscaping at Villa Laura is beautifully done, including an extensive rose garden surrounding a new in-ground pool, jacuzzi, and spectacular Roman fountain.
The goal of the restoration was to maintain the villa’s original charm and magic. The interior is decorated with a combination of contemporary and antique furniture, found across Europe, by designer Jane Thompson.
There are three main buildings on the estate, sleeping a total of 20 people in 10 en-suite bedrooms. The Villa, The Farmhouse and the Limonaia.
