Sant Elia is a beautifully restored farmhouse surrounded by twelve acres of land, which includes its own olive groves, vineyard and spacious gardens. The house has been renovated to a very high standard and has under-floor heating and air conditioning. The furnishings offer a tranquil and serene interior encompassing both traditional and modern tastes. All bedding is either by the White Company or a comparable Italian company, which adds to the feel of luxury.
Cooking is part of ‘Sant’ Elia’ and the kitchen bears witness to this! There is a large fully equipped kitchen, an outside oven and also a gas barbeque. Much of the produce comes from the vegetable garden and this is also available for guests. Throughout the summer meals are often eaten outside on the terrace under the pergola, on the separate roof terrace or even in a picnic area in the olive groves.
For relaxation there is a lounge with a large seating area, open fire, Sky TV and DVD player with an eclectic film library. The lounge also has direct access to the pergola terrace with its own comfortable outside seating.
The house faces south with views of the nearby town of Filottrano and distant views to the mountains. There is a 12m x 6m pool, extensive lawns and well-established gardens. The silo, alongside the pool, has been converted into a pool bar, shower and bathroom area.
