The cottage Il Mandorlo in springtime

Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2

Key Info
  • Swimming pool
  • Not suitable for children
  • No pets allowed

Our cottage was converted from an old agricultural annex by the same builders who restored our main house. Both are set on what was a mountainside farm and before that, we think, a religious complex of some sort. While the exterior of the main house is rendered and painted in the classical Tuscan fashion, Il Mandorlo is visibly stone-built with cement pointing. The bedroom, entrance hall and bathroom are on the ground floor with a staircase up to the first floor which includes lounge, dining and kitchen areas. The lounge is furnished with a large and comfortable sofa-divan, there is a television-cum-video cassette player together with a library of tapes. The kitchen is fully equipped with quality fittings including a dish-washer, electric oven. fridge-freezer and a gas hob. Laundry facilities are available in the washing room in the main house. Double doors exit from the kitchen on the first floor onto a terrace, surrounded by a small garden, mostly roses,and shaded by an old almond tree. The cottage is kept cool in the summer by being set into the hillside but does also have central heating. A 6X12 metre swimming-pool is available for use during the summer. The property is located some 500 metres above sea-level and overlooks a magnificently forested valley with a few additional agricultural properties here and there. Our land covering some 70 acres (30 hectares) is divided between grassland terraces and olive groves and woodland and you are free to roam as you wish. The property is not suitable for young children and those with physical handicap. We recommend a rented car for which there is ample parking room.
