A charming family house and pool with a panoramic view
- Sleeps 10
- 5 bedrooms
A short distance from the birthplace of the famous sculptor, Casa Michelangelo is a delightful farmhouse positioned to take in the Tiber valley and Lake Montedoglio in one breathtaking panorama. With a view from furnished terraces and a vine-covered pergola that somehow helps the visitor breathe more deeply, the easy family atmosphere in and out of the honey coloured stone house assures a restful holiday for guests of all generations. There is a wide lavender and rose bordered garden that offers wonderful places for children to play under the generous shade of cherry and walnut trees, yet there are also quiet corners on all levels for those seeking time with a good book or congenial conversation....
Passing the future holiday home of the owners, the approach drive finishes on a level above the house where the fenced pool offers perhaps the property's best views from its furnished stone surround. Steps from the pool area lead down past a furnished patio to the lower flagstone terrace facing the garden. To one side of the terrace the original staircase leads up to the sitting room, yet the most often used entrance is no doubt directly into what was formerly the stables and is now the generous heart of any Tuscan home - a well-equipped kitchen. Conveniently off one side of the kitchen is a dining room with a long slate-topped table for 10 and access through French doors to the furnished pergola favoured for al fresco meals. Also off the kitchen is a charming double bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a door to the terrace.
The internal staircase, just past the cleverly concealed washing machine, leads up to the first floor landing with an attractive bathroom and entrance to a cosy sitting room with a comfortable sofa and a large pietra serena fireplace. Off this room are doors to two twin bedrooms, which can be made up as doubles when requested, and to a large double bedroom that has direct access to the upper furnished patio and an ensuite bathroom with sunken tub. The last bedroom, with a lovely four-poster double bed and wide tower windows overlooking the garden, is on the second floor and has its own shower room on the landing.
