The Villa has been converted from a 300-year-old stone barn. Although it has come a long way from its humble beginnings, original features have been retained and materials reused wherever possible to preserve its original character - chestnut beamed ceiling, hand-made pianelle ceiling tiles, cut stone door and window surrounds, wrought iron railings and hardware.
The interior boasts high ceilings and open spaces. Windows are generous, and afford sweeping views of the surrounding countryside that are never short of breathtaking. Mature oak trees surround the house and provide welcome shade on hot summer days.
The design, restoration and selection of materials were overseen personally by the previous owners who took a hands-on approach to the project and did a lot of the actual work, from the reclaiming of ceiling tiles to the building and installation of windows and doors.
The villa is on two levels and is positioned on a hillock so that both floors have ground level access. The main entrance is on the upper level, where there is parking for several cars, a wide terrace with a pergola and tables and chairs adjacent to the pool. On this upper level occupying the four corners of the villa are four bedrooms. The remaining bedroom is on the lower floor with direct access to the rear terrace with tables and chairs.
Rooms upstairs radiate off of a central hallway with an impressive four-meter high chestnut beamed and terracotta tiled ceiling. Furnishing and decorating has been executed with taste throughout the villa in a style that is casual and uncluttered.All bedrooms have hand made beds of wood or wrought iron furnished with comfortable firm mattresses, tasteful furniture and some beautiful antiques. The bathrooms are spacious and offer good natural light.
