Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
The House of the Anchient Roses was named after the collection of ancient, English roses that the owners Riccardo and Stefania have chosen for the parkland surrounding their villa. The park, scattered with forest trees, confers to the estate a deep sense of privacy.
The villa, furnished in a fashionable style design, welcomes its guests within its ease at once. Walls are painted bright colours, emphasyzing modern style features in the house. Stefania, who is a professional painter, either has frescoed some of the rooms' walls or hung some wide pictures painted by her.
At guests disposal:
A fenced swimming-pool with salted water (12x6 mt, depth 1.20 mt open from 1st May to the end of September) and solarium are placed in the backyard, in the villa's parkland. In a shaded corner hangs a big hammock. In the frontyard you may have your meals nicely in the cool air, under a wisteria hanging down from the arbour facing the pizza oven.
The villa is in a park 4000 square metres wide, with a hedge of tall trees safeguarding guests' privacy and where about 150 species of roses are grown. (especially in springtime the place is wonderfully filled with colours and sweet fragrances).
Donnini village is located 2 km far from the villa with food shops, post office bar, pizzeria stationary and newspaper shop.
At only a short drive from the house you will find the famous shopping centre called "The Mall".
The house is situated in an area famous for its high quality olive oil.
