Casa Bramasole, Frances Mayes' house near Cortona This is the real "Casa Bramsole", somewhat different from the one shown in the film. The latter is also located near Cortona and was used for the restoration scenes. It has since in turn been restored.
"Under the Tuscan Sun", Bramasole. This is the real one in the Tuscan town of Cortona that the Author Frances Mayes lives in- not the one used in filming. Of course, Lauren & I just had to see this for ourselves!
