A modern vacation home with 4 bedrooms, set in an age-old olive grove and part of a working farm. Rome is only 80 km distance and the villa is within walking distance from a small village for your first groceries and morning cappuccino.
The villa has all comforts of a home away from home and has a nice pool where you can do laps (5mx15mx1.80m). The pool is separated from the villa by a fence.
The views are fantastic from this vacation villa located in a quiet spot, surrounded by bird song, yet only 500 meters from an ancient little town, Penna in Teverina, with several shops and two bars.
A gentle path leads up to the magnificent "lap" pool in natural stone and sand-colored tiles behind the house, protected by a natural forest, dotted with olive trees, with an even greater view of the valley and the tile-roofed back of the house and the "limonaia" (lemon house).
The vacation home is ideally situated for all kinds of activities. One can go shopping for small groceries on foot and have a coffee in one of the bars of the beautiful medieval town of Penna. Orte is 15 minutes easy drive and from here the train to Rome takes you into Rome center in 40 minutes. You can visit towns like Orvieto, Viterbo, and Amelia all within half an hour's drive. There are many old medieval towns and extensive woods, excellent quality food, and wines.
A stay in this villa makes it possible to attend to all the nice aspects of life, like culture, nature, gastronomy, and last but not least, relaxing.
An excellent cook can be arranged, she can come and cook at the house, or also bring freshly prepared food and only finish the cooking for you (or you can do this if you prefer).
The villa sleeps 8 to 10 guests comfortably.
Rebuilt from the stones of a ruined farmhouse, this stupendous villa is an expression of traditional design and modern efficiency, merging with the landscape and framing its many vistas with local stone, terra cotta tiles, and chestnut beams.
The house sleeps a maximum of 10 guests in 4 bedrooms (two double bedrooms and two bedrooms with a bunk bed and a single bed), 3 bathrooms, 2 fireplaces, a living room downstairs open to the ample modern kitchen, and another sitting room upstairs. Set into the hillside, the house has immediate access to the garden on both levels. There is no TV and no microwave. There is wifi internet.
One enters a spacious and modern kitchen and immediately next to it is the living room with an open fireplace. To the side of this floor are a double bedroom and a bathroom with a shower. Large doors open up to the covered terrace overlooking the garden and the valley beyond.
One floor up there are 3 bedrooms. Two of these each have a bunk bed and a single bed, and share a bathroom with a shower. An open studio area in the corridor with access to the back garden leads to the master bedroom with a double bed and a bathroom.
The pool is open from June to September.
