Il Pozzo apartment Map, La renaia farm in Cortona

The apartment was named after a well located in one of the tool sheds the apartment itself was converted from. The well provided supplied water for both household use and animal watering purposes. The well, built in ancient times, hand-carved and rather shallow, originally had a laundry sink standing right next to it. This brings us back to times when water was drawn from the well during the harsh winters with buckets tied to a rope pulled up and down on a pulley; the water was warm and gave relief to the freezing hands of washerwomen purple with chilblains.

However in the summer-time the well would often dry up leaving farmers to cry for rain that would feed the water table and re-fill the well. Otherwise the only option was to walk with copper jugs to the neighbouring houses and draw water from deeper and more generous wells. The laundry was washed along the river in pools that abounded with water and sometime fish. In the old days rivers would hardly ever completely run dry in the summer!!! The well is still underneath the floor of the large kitchen of the apartment that also comprises one bedroom, one bath-room and a large patio deck (with fire-place). The apartment, an ideal solution for 2-3 people, is located on the ground floor and is completely disabled-friendly. (Sizes: apartment – 46 sq.metres – Patio deck – 35 sq. metres)..
