Hi there! I'm Giulio! I am an artist and with my wife I decided to move from the chaos of the city to the country. We run a small farm near Rome where we welcome all people who like simple and natural life!
Giulio purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Giulio chose Rome
The Cottage is made of both wood and traditional cement with stucco siding. It is tucked into the wood by the stream at the end of the property. It features a large central room with exposed beams, working wood-burning fireplace, ample living area, galley kitchen and dining area, two bedrooms and one bath with a custom-made deep tub with a shower. There is a parking area at the top of a chestnut staircase that leads you past an Etruscan grotto, then a stone path winds between fruit trees until you reach the patio. The local stone patio has lots of room for outdoor relaxing. There is a gorgeous in-ground pool surrounded by trees and a deck for the guests.
What makes this Cottage unique
The Wood Cottage is a special house: it is hidden away, private, surrounded by nature, undisturbed. Our guests have enjoyed night-time owl watching from the patio and the feeling that they are far away from the bustle and technology of everyday life. The house takes its name from the ancient spring that originates in the one-time Etruscan settlement, now Cesano Borgo, in the tufa bed some 20 feet below it. While the precipice is carefully fenced off, there is a unique cliff-top view. The stream that borders our back yard is home to other Etruscan grottos. The oak canopy over the house’s terracotta-tiled roof along with the ferns and chestnut and hazelnut trees that grow in the valley surround the house in pastoral tranquility.
