About the home
The house is a three story stone building, which dates back to the 14th century. It has been recently restored and is located in the heart of the historical center (“borgo”) of Scheggino, a quite little village at the end of the Valnerina valley, crossed by the Nera river. The interior design is simple, well-cared for and perfectly in harmony with the medieval atmosphere of the village.

The living room is on the ground floor, with a fireplace, open face stone walls, ceiling with exposed wooden beams and rustic decor. The kitchen with another living/dining room and another fireplace is on the second floor. There is also one balcony and another lovely terrace with a view of the river.

There is also a nice outdoor public swimming pool open in the summer and many sports can be practiced: walking, fishing, swimming, cycling, mountain biking, horseback riding, trekking. Starting from Scheggino you can do rafting and kayak on Nera river. There is also an “Activo Park” where all kind of outdoor activities are organized for both kids and adults.
