8 bedroom villa to sleep 16
Pride of place on our property is taken by La Collinnaccia Villa, set atop our highest ridge. The sun rises over the Romagna Appennines to warm the pool and the shaded breakfast loggia, and sets behind the Appenines of Toscana. There is not another building to interrupt either view except as distant specks on the far hillsides. The sunsets are spectacular and the special light at the end of the day will never be forgotten. The high position of the house affords a large variety of walks and ever changing types of scenery. La Collinaccia, is our latest remodelling. We have used the finest local materials - terracotta flooring, chestnut beams from our own trees and decorative tiles from the famous factories of Faenza nearby. The big villa, separated into two fully contained and very large apartments-each over a full floor of the villa-can be used together or separately by your group. The big swimming pool is set in a rolling lawn adjoining the house. Car parking is out of sight.
All together La Collinaccia villa boasts two double bedrooms and six twin bedrooms, with a total of eight bathrooms. Four bedrooms and four bathrooms are on each floor. One ground floor bedroom is an 'upstairs' room with spectacular views. The accomodation on the ground floor has a large living room with open fireplace that looks out to the north and the east. Off the living room is a separate dining room which seats 8 persons and leads into a large, fully equipped kitchen with a full utility room behind. The doors to the dining room and kitchen open directly to the outside for outdoor eating while enjoying the beautifull view.
On the first floor is another living room, a large family style dining room separated from the kitchen by an architectural arch. An alternative, unique, dining area has also been created from a large entrance hall with its own open fireplace, and which can seat at least 16 people.
This is available for use on its own, or if our guests wish to use the 'Summer kitchen' off this entrance hall as well, we will substitute the use of this kitchen and dining facility instead of the kitchen and dining room on the first floor. There is a door from this dining hall that leads directly into the dining room of the ground floor apartment and thus joining both floors internally. There is another utility room as well off of this lobby/hall.
All rooms are decorated with beautiful art prints and artifacts to make the house very warm and interesting.
The large swimming pool, open from May 8 to 25 September, (5x10mt; depth 1,20-1,90mt) and grounds, with a gracious outdoor dining area, is arranged to accomodate our guests in easy comfort.
