Rock pool, 5 X 4 mts. NOT a swimming pool. A cool pool to sit in and enjoy a glass of prosecco. It can take to 2 to 3 people at a time. Fed by fresh mountain streams.
My house is close to art and culture, great views, family-friendly activities, and restaurants and dining. You’ll love my house because of the outdoors space, the neighborhood, the light, the comfy bed, and the kitchen. My house is good for couples, business travelers, families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).
With WiFi, 2 fully fitted kitchens + a large public pool in the country, 5 kms away, with a restaurant. A beautiful walk or leisurely car drive!
Unique rock pool 5 mts by 4 mts, fed from natural fountain in the nearby woods. A relaxing spot to cool in the hot sun !
This LUXURY villa is ONLY rented as a whole villa to ONE party. However, on one small corner, at the front of the villa, there is another small abode. owned by an Italian couple, who use it as a w/end retreat, at times. They have no access to the private land all around you. They have only a small fenced terrace at the front of the villa.
But, please note that this villa is very large and, therefore, of your 2 large private terraces, it is the one at the back of the villa that you will use in the main, overlooking the glorious countryside that is all yours as far as the eye can see.
The Italian's small corner abode at the front of the villa has no access to the back of the villa, which is where you will spend most of your time, when you are dining or pottering about alfresco.
The property is not fenced. Therefore, if you have dogs, they cannot roam unchecked because there may be cattle or sheep in the vicinity.
A large enclosure with shelter for your dogs (which are allowed in the house), masses of private land all around you, all yours for the duration of your stay, and a beautiful public pool + restaurant just 5 kms away, a dreamy walk (or car drive) through world class scenery......olive groves, sun-flower fields, chestnut woods and olive groves and a vista that disappears into the horizon, embracing mediaeval hill-top villages, monasteries, purple mountains and blue hazes of cornflower fields, early in the morning !

Other things to note
Our small partnership group, ourselves included, own all the properties that we advertise, about 70 in all, from villas with pools to smart town houses to central city apartments.
Subsequently, we can organise olive oil tasting, wine tasting, chef at home, eating in chef's house, truffle hunting, picnics with a donkey, cheese making, caving, canyoning, rafting, canoeing, horse riding.....anything you like.......all at better rates than you get going through the conventional channels. This is because all the aforementioned activities, except for horse-riding, are offered by our partners to ensure you have the holiday of a lifetime !
For instance, the olive oil of one of our partners (Ciarletti) was blessed by the Pope 2 years ago, after it had won the top prize in Italy. He, amongst other of our partners, offers olive oil tasting, accompanied by a lunch, at his farmhouse.
All our activities are totally authentic, put on by Italians, whose familes go back for centuries and who have been in the truffle, olive oil and wine trade for all of that time.
And, because all the activities we offer are "inhouse" we can undercut all the "professional" businesses, for whom it is their livelihood. Such activities are not our livelihood. Neither are they the livelihood of our partners. We and our partners offer these activities with the aim of enriching your holiday.
And see our AMAZING OFFER !

I arrived here 30 odd years ago, fell in love with the place, my 1st spiritual home. Couldn't wait to move here permanently. Did so. With 2nd husband. Ist husband declined.
Was persuaded to rent to someone, whose violinist daughter was performing in a Spoleto festival because she couldn't find anywhere to stay.....and, we happened to be holidaying in Sydney. That's how it started. 11 years ago.
We bought more property here.
Our estate agent saw what we were doing. She joined up with us.
The person we bought property from saw what we were doing. He joined up with us.
Suddenly we were in the holiday rental business, for real !
Sydney lost its appeal as we started to introduce potential guests to the beautiful properties that our small partnership group offers, about 50 in all....apartments, villas and pool properties. It is such a joyful experience to be able to offer people the holiday of a lifetime.
Never having been in business before, both of us retired academics, we wished we'd done this all our lives. However, our hard-nosed business friends describe our activity as merely a life-style. "You should charge for this, charge for that, the euros add up", they say. But money is not our goal. Your happiness is.
