This luxury country house is a newly restored ruin with original stone walls, which have been standing for approximately 500 years, giving it a rustic yet elegant feel. It has 6 spacious bedrooms, 5 with a double bed and 1 with a wooden bunk bed (2 singles). There are 5 bathrooms (one en suite), 2 kitchens (a large kitchen on ground floor and a kitchenette on first floor), and 2 spacious living rooms. 

The downstairs rooms open on to the wonderful main terrace with a pergola and barbecue. On the terrace you can have picturesque 'al fresco' dinners!

 

 

DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPERTY

As you enter from the main door you walk into the main kitchen which is a gorgeous rustic cooking space, with a fully-equipped kitchen and a large wooden dining table. 

After the kitchen is a study/connecting room with a desk, antique chair, and computer which the guests have access to. 

Walking further you enter into the first living room with a grand fire place, 2 white sofas, a TV and 2 doors one leading to a bathroom with a shower and toilet, the other leading into a corridor with 2 bathrooms (both with a shower and toilet) and 2 double rooms. Every bedroom and bathroom is done to the highest standard without losing a bit of the Italian charm. One of the bathrooms has a large sauna, that can be used on request, 50 euros/week is the extra cost.

 

At the end of the corridor is a staircase leading up to the second smaller kitchen (again fully-equipped), the second living room, and the 3rd double bedroom. There is also a wall of large windows overlooking the incredible valley view and a door leading onto the upstairs covered terrace with a dining table and an astounding view.

Jumping back to the study, there is a stair-case leading up to 3 more spacious bedrooms, 2 of which are double and one of which has a bunk bed. 1 of the bedrooms has an en-suite.

The bedrooms have ceiling fans, due to the thick stone walls and elevated location, the house is well insulated, A/C is not needed.

The house could theoretically accommodate up to 12 people, but we'd rather have a smaller group, as the outdoor spaces can comfortably accommodates 8, up to 10 guests.

 

 

GARDEN AND POOL

Infinity pool a few steps from the house, with sunloungers and umbrella, on the back of the property there is a ping pong table and a large Jacuzzi bath that can be used on request (150 euros/week, payable locally). 

Two large and covered terraces with al fresco dining tables and a barbecue, provide the perfect spots for guests to wine, dine and leisurely lay about, enjoying the enviable setting.

The outside area with a variety of flowers and herbs, is on different levels, with multiple lounging areas in the front of the garden and in the scenic terraces.

Safe parking just out of the property.
