Poggio carbone is a remarkable property situated in a very panoramic position, in the hills of Piacenza, surrounded by woods, vineyards and fields. This area, with its beautiful landscape, is famous both for its magnificent castles, some of them still lived in by the areas noble families such as the Gonzaga, and for the production of very good wines. The views from the house and from the swimming pool are impressive and stretch from the plain to the Alps in the distance. The area is also rich in historic towns such as Pavia (with its famous Certosa), Mantova and Cremona, that certainly deserve a visit. The owner of Poggio Carbone, a renowned Italian architect, felt in love with this property for the beauty of the buildings, dating back to the 16th century, and for its position overlooking the uncontaminated surrounding valleys. He totally restored it with great attention to all details and empathising the importance of the original structure with modern touches such as the staircase and the huge sky-light over the library. The result is a beautiful and comfortable villa that so far he has used only for family purposes. He now decided to rent it for some periods and we are very proud to be able to offer it to those of our clients who wants to explore this attractive part of Italy enjoying the experience of living in such a beautiful property. The accommodation is split in three buildings, two interconnecting and one separate, all restored to the highest possible standard, and can comfortably accommodate up to 10/12 people. It has been very elegantly furnished and equipped with all comforts. The resident caretakers live in a separate apartment on the estate and are at clients' disposal for extra services. Two very friendly golden retriever live also on the estate.

Maid service is included in the price 3 hours a day, 5 days a week.
