The apartment retains most original features, boasting chestnut wood beams and beautiful floors throughout. The living room has a large fireplace, the kitchen has been restored in a traditional/country style, and the master bedroom has a draped 4 poster bed, and further fireplace.
The piece di resistance is however the extensive private terrace - impossible to tear oneself away from this romantic relaxing and dining area - just spend the entire holiday, reading, listening to music, painting, eating, and drinking wine, just popping down to the local shop and restaurant for provisions when required!
No cars are permitted in the old part of this village, (free parking at 'the square' )and the only sound to be heard is the chiming of churchbells!
This is a real romantic treat!
The house is reached via a 2 minute walk from the village square through mediaeval streets, where cars cannot pass.
The house is situated right on the edge of the village in a very peaceful location, with the best views!
The village boasts a small shop open every day, and a restaurant which is open every evening in the summer, & weekends out of season.The vegetable van also visits weekly for those authentic Italian shops with the locals!
There are plenty of places to eat very well, and very cheaply locally, but you do need a car, and a phrase book.
