Interior

Kitchen/dining room - kitchenette - living/dining room - 2 double bedrooms - 2 bathrooms

The house is divided on two levels. The first one, which you reach on arrival (parking is near to the terrace), offers a furnished terrace and a ground floor spacious suite that includes a double bedroom, with a low wall separating it from a kitchenette/dining area and its own ensuite private bathroom with shower.

Next to the suite, and always accessed from the furnished terrace, is a large, newly renovated fitted kitchen which is furnished with many kitchen appliances and is perfect for those who enjoy cooking in a well-equipped environment. It is a kitchen for food lovers. The kitchen hosts a large semi formal dining area to one side. It is fitted with dishwasher, large refrigerator, separate freezer, 5 burner professional gas range, raised oven set in the wall, microwave, food processor, American and Italian coffee machines and there is also a washing machine and dryer set under one of the counters.

The upstairs is reached by an exterior staircase that leads to a large 50 sqm stone terrace with pergola, large table and outdoor stone fireplace/barbecue. At the back of the house is another private stone terrace with outdoor shower. From the upper terrace, entrance is into a living/dining room with door to a spacious master bedroom with double bed and a complete bathroom with both shower and bathtub.

Heating   Usage will be metered throughout your stay and you will be charged accordingly. Charges must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked to make a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.

Water and Electricity    Please note that most of the properties in our portfolio are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.

 

Internet Connection   Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
