Our villa is an old restored farmhouse. Many years ago two families lived on the first floor. The ground floor housed the stables for the animals. The second floor, under the roof, was used to store the food for the winter, grain, beans, dried meat etc. The walls on the ground floor are over 1 meter thick, so the house remains cool all summer, and comfortable in winter. There is a always a slight breeze because of its favourable location on top of the hill. The house is build in natural light rose stones as shown in the pictures.
A pergola has been build around the house, covering close to three quarters, as Italians live the summers outside, spending a lot of time at a long table with pasta, a good glass of wine and the local vegetables.
The villa has 4 large bedrooms, beds for 9 persons, 3 double beds, and 3 single beds. Two bathrooms, each with a toilet, bidet and shower. One has in addition a tub. A spacious living room, and a large modern kitchen with an electric oven, gas cooker, dishwasher and a big fridge and a freezer. In the canteen at the back there is a washing machine. Bedlinen, blankets, towels etc are provided for. There is wifi in and around the house. A flatscreen TV mounted on the wall in the kitchen, and a large TV in the living room.
At the swimming pool there is a guest house, with a large glass sliding door opening to the terrace in front of the pool. A double bed, bathroom with shower, toilet and bidet. And for those that want to stay in shape, there is some exercise equipment, a threadmill, a bicycle and a weights exercise machine.
Next to the house there is an authentic woodfurnace to make your own pizza and a barbecue plate, with ofcourse the necessary wood to use it
The house has a swimming pool of 5 by 10 meters, with so called roman steps, and ofcourse there are the necessary inflatables, chairs etc to relax. The swimming pool has a fully automated system ensuring the right chlorine levels, pH etc, and will be cleaned several times a week, early in the morning, by our gardener.
The house has a large collection of books, in English, Italian and Dutch, audio and video DVD’s for both children and older people.
