Where we are
If you are in Cortona already, take the road that leads to Pergo and Ossaia. At the end of the road, before reaching the village of Pergo, around the height of the Campaccio, you will find the junction for Ossaia on the right. Follow a long straight stretch (on SP 35) for about one kilometer. You will then see signs for Il Castagno on the left, immediately after crossing a small bridge over the Esse river.
If you are coming from the Autostrada del Sole (A1) highway from either the north or south, get off at the Valdichiana tollbooth and take the Superstrada in the direction of Perugia. Do not get off at the exit for Cortona, but take the exit for Pietraia that follows it, or even the exit for Castiglione del Lago. Then follow directions towards Cortona. After passing through the small towns of Terontola and Riccio, turn right towards Ossaia. Drive through the small cluster of houses, and at the bottom of a hill, you will see signs for Il Castagno on the right.
