The three apartments for 2-3 persons are located on the ground floor of the country house 'Il Vecchio Ippocastano' (total of 5 holiday self catering apartments, the other two are for up to 6 persons and are promoted in another webpage).

The whole 16th century building has been renovated many times, last in 2010 and the project was designed by the holistic architect Brunella Franceschini who is also the property's owner, in the past it used to be her ancestor's summer holiday villa and they used to come from Spoleto by carriages to enjoy the mountain fresh air (we are at about 900 mts of altitude)...

With much attention and love the apartments have been created with particular attention on comfort and harmony using natural materials like local limestone and chestnut wood. The furniture is entirely made with natural wood and it's also integrated with ancient family furnishings. The atmosphere is warm and cozy.

The apartments include a large double bedroom, a bathroom with shower, living/dining room with a single sofa bed and a fully equipped cooking corner.

Few steps away you could enjoy genuine biological food at the Restaurant il Vecchio Ippocastano where also daily buffet breakfast is served. In a 2 min walking from the property you find the local bazar with fresh daily food products and much more!

You need a car while staying at the Wolf to discover the nearby historic towns of Spoleto, Cascia, Norcia or to get to the National Park of Sibillini Mountains.

If you like sports you could enjoy trekking, nordic walking, rafting on Nera River, mountain bike, horse riding all within a short driving distance from the countryhouse.

The property boasts a brand new 5X10 mt pool with salt water. There is a big pergola area just outside the big breakfast room where you can eat "al fresco" and use the property's barbecue . There is wi-fi internet included in the rate in garden and reception area. Small pets are allowed, check with us!
