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 (can seat up to 10 people, with an extention). The kitchen access to the downstairs terrace with a lovely pergola covering the dining table seasting up 10 people; this is one of the most livable areas of the property, with barbecue, direct access to the pool area and the garden, and wide views of the hills and the medieval village of Campello.
After the kitchen is a study/connecting room with a desk, antique chair, and a computer which the guests have access to. Walking further you enter into the first living room with a grand fire place (wood available on request at an extra cost), 2 white sofas, a TV and 2 doors one leading to a bathroom with a steam shower and toilet, the other leading into a corridor with 2 bathrooms (both with a shower and toilet) and 2 double bedrooms with ceiling fans. 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 first floor, where you find a kitchenette (again fully-equipped), and another beautiful living room. There living room features a wall of large windows to admire the incredible and undisturbed valley view, this area has a direct access to the upstairs covered terrace with dining table and an astounding view. Both terraces have dining tables and wifi coverage.
The sleeping area on the first floor, consists of 4 more spacious bedrooms, 2 of which are double and one of which has a bunk bed. 1 of them, the master bedroom, has a gorgeous en-suite bathroom.
All the bedrooms have ceiling fans; due to the thick stone walls and elevated location, the house is well insulated, A/C is not needed.
