Barga, with private pool, 6 hectares of land - sleeping 2

Small romantic converted chestnut house with its own large private pool, situated in 6 hectares of organic farmland and chestnut woods.


This newly converted chestnut house has been lovingly restored with a great deal of care and personal attention by the owners


The property has a real romantic feel and is complete with four poster bed!


On the ground floor there is a living area with large windows and arched doorway out to patio, separated from the kitchen/dining area by a circular working fireplace which sits in the middle of the room and therefore heats the entire floor.

Kitchen has oven, hob, fridge, washine machine… living area has working fireplace, dvd player.


Up the spiral staircase there is a lovely romantic double aspect 4 poster bedroom with doors placed opposite the bed, to take advantage of the wonderful views..


There is also a good sized modern shower room


The outdoor eating area boasts the most fantastic views of the mountains, and is high above barga which is a beautiful city lit up at night, creating a very romantic place to eat 'al fresco' and for enjoying those last glasses of wine of the day! The property is located high in the mountains, thus ensuring it is never 'too' hot, and it really feels it is possible to touch the stars at night!


The private 'infinity style' swimming pool (10m x 5m plus roman steps) is high above the house so as not to totally spoil the traditional feel of the property, and to ensure it remains totally out of sight. The view from the pool is wonderful and the style of pool means it feels one is swimming in the mountains


The owners are very keen to share their love of the area, and will be happy to provide for all your needs.


Nb:

Not suitable for elderly or affect due to steep climb to the pool.
Please also note that there are also a couple of resident cats in the grounds - they are tame and friendly.
