It makes us different!
A pergola, roofed by grape plants, provides shade on the path leading to the Patio at the entrance of the villa; the external veranda is connected to the large living room characterized by the tuff brick walls and the ‘fresco’ paint work realized by master Saro Lo Turco. The couch, the curtains and the upholstery tailor made by Harrods in London blend nicely with the rustic-chic style of the house. All the pieces of furniture and paintings in the house have been hand picked by Mrs Rosa during her extensive travelling in France and among local artisans’ production.
The villa consists of four bedrooms each with private bathroom. The large kitchen, fully furnished, combines traditional wood stoves with the lates Alpes Inox cooking equipment; the wall are decorated with hand painted tiles and antique copper pans. The small veranda by the kitchen overlooks the bay, and it is mostly used for cooking lessons.
The old cellars with their tuff rock vaults are located on the lower floors allowing better preservation of the wines; the cellar has been carefully restored and it is divided in two areas, one of which is reserved for a valuable collection with presitigious wines and the best vintages; the other area contains the old oak barrels and it also used to complete the ageing of cured meats produced in the farm.
The merging of the walnut trees, the wineyards, the lemon and olive groves into the gardens and then into the villa itself created a magical landscape where the greenery has been architecturally incorporated into the villa. The lawns stretch from the patio through to the gazebos’ area to the swimming pool and the solarium. The large marquee, a great iron wrought structure, connects the villa to the outdoor living room equipped with comfortable wicker furniture and used to dine ‘al fresco’, by the barbecue and the pizza oven.
