    The property is a historic borgo with the buildings arranged around a central paved courtyard. The access is via a short well maintained white road.

    The accommodation consists of the following:

    Main House of approx. 1000 sq m set over 3 floors:

    Ground floor: Huge, charming, open plan kitchen with dining and sitting room areas all connected, boasting many original features, huge farmhouse fireplace, large walk in larder room and ample preparation and cooking areas. This is a cook's dream kitchen and the perfect place for large family gatherings at hearty mealtimes, making fresh pasta and preserving the harvests of fruit and vegetables from the gardens. This floor also has bathroom with laundry area, large office/living room and bedroom with en-suite bathroom.

    First floor: This floor has been arranged as two independent apartments which can very easily just be a united floor with living and sleeping areas if one wished. Currently there are 2 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, 3 bedrooms with shared bathroom, 2 living rooms with fireplaces and 2 kitchens.

    Second floor: Large dining and sitting room with fireplace and glorious sun drenched roof terrace, large kitchen, a bedroom with en-suite bathroom and three further bedrooms with a shared bathroom.

    The second building (120 sqm) is laid out on two levels and currently offers two separate guest apartments.
    - Ground floor: kitchen/dining room, bedroom with bathroom;
    - First floor: kitchen/dining room with fireplace, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

    A few steps from the houses is the wonderful Hall (280 sq m) with floor to ceiling glass windows which is currently used as a yoga/music/meditation studio but could easily be anything the new owner desires including an artist's studio. It is flooded with natural sunlight and has breathtaking views. There is a bathroom as well as a mezzanine storage area. Attached is the Limonaia for storing the delicate plants and lemon trees over winter and below is the room currently used as the carpentry workshop/wine cellar.

    In the gardens there are many further outbuildings including the impressive outdoor kitchen/barbeque/pizza oven, 200 sqm commercial grade greenhouse, hay barns, animal shelters, stables, chicken pens, a mud brick outbuilding and two derelict buildings that can be renovated into two 100 sqm buildings, as well as a parking area.
