Since it was used as the Bramasole for the movie ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’, Villa Laura has been beautifully renovated to a 5-star vacation villa
Many people have dreamt of moving to Tuscany or owning a holiday 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, for a week-long stay.
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.
Inside the villa, you’ll find 10 bedrooms (which comfortably sleep up to 20 guests), 10.5 bathrooms, fireplace, wine cellar, home theater and a game room.
Adjacent to Villa Laura is a rustic farmhouse that accommodates a total of 18 guests. The size makes it perfect destination weddings, families or large groups. This is the perfect opportunity for guests to step into a movie set and live out their own adventure.
