Description

Villa Roncovisi is a typical historical Tuscan villa with exclusive swimming pool.

This independent villa, built in the second half of the 18th century, is the centre of a property of over 18 acres of woods and olive groves. It is on the last western slopes of Mount Albano, approximately 250mt. above sea level.

Originally it was composed of two farm houses which have been joined together (maintaining however a certain independence if required).

The owners have carried out an accurate and rigorous renovation using only materials recovered from the surrounding area and period while ensuring a structure which respects the norms of bio-architecture.

The living areas have been renovated with a careful eye for details - antique furniture and ornaments, antique doors, prints, paintings and Persian carpets.

On the other hand the house has every possible modern comfort.

The living areas have been renovated with a careful eye for details - antique furniture and ornaments, antique doors, prints, paintings and Persian carpets.

On the other hand the house has every possible modern comfort.

The outside

The external walls are covered with typical local stone as are almost all the surrounding houses, conserving the original aspect of the building as when it was constructed more than 200 years ago. On the property there is another villa belonging to the owners Villa dell' Angelo with its own garden and swimming pool 100mt. away from the main villa.

The pool

The pool, 6x12mt. and depth of 1.35mt., is exclusive to the guests of Villa Roncovisi. It is situated on a natural terrace a few metres below the villa level and has a wide view of the valley below.

It is an overflow pool and is equipped with hydromassage, swimjets system for water treadmill and changing room with shower and WC.

The night lighting of the pool and its surrounds is particularly suggestive.

The cleaning system of the pool insures utmost hygene and eliminates any possible inconvenience caused by the chloride. The swimming pool has an automatic system for maintaining the values of the PH and of the chlorine in the right range. The water is slightly saline and contains the same percentage of salt as the human eye.

The pool is open from mid April to mid October (under normal climatic conditions).

There is a sunbathing area with umbrellas, chairs, tables and divans. Further down to the right of the pool there is a relax area with a gazebo and chairs.

There is also a small children's corner.

Under the pool deck there is a changeing room, a shower and a bathroom.

The villa looks out over typical Tuscan countryside - hills and olive groves, woods of chestnut and oak trees - all immersed in an oasis of silence.

The few cars which pass belong to the people living in the area and there is also another road with no outlet.

Interior design

For more than thirty years the owners have cultivated their passion for antiques and have furnished the villa with pieces acquired from antique dealers, auction sales or antique fairs. Some of the more particular pieces are the beautiful doors of the walk-in wardrobes in two of the bedrooms, the wooden 17th century plaque from a Florentine convent above the door of the larger loungeroom. Two of the bedrooms have Empire wardrobes and chests of drawers.

The owners' taste is eclectic and includes some pieces of Liberty period furniture, for example, the French mirror in the green bathroom and the Sicilian chest of drawers in the yellow bedroom. There are two chairs and a table from Puccini's villa at Torre del Lago, as well as a late Empire sideboard of Calabrese origin.

There are many antique prints on the walls, including geographical maps of various countries, and in some of the bedrooms and lounge rooms there are chests of the C16th and C17th. Another remarkable piece is the billiard table, dating back to the early nineteen hundreds - in perfect condition. Many other pieces, more or less important, have all been chosen in the spirit of tracing our roots back to the past. Also in the garden one can find marble or stone capitals as well as old terrracotta Tuscan vases.
