Staying in the private house of one of Italy's most important architects makes living here an unique experience.
An extraordinary newly built private villa, for 8-10 guests, designed by a very well known Italian architect, to blend minimalism and rural culture, resulting in a unique example of energetic auto sufficiency of style and design. Inspired by love of the city of Todi and the mysticism of the Umbrian hills, this is a house in which the fine-taste and design meet passion and respect for nature. The project fits in perfectly to the surrounding landscape, and results in a technologically avant-garde and eco-sustainable dwelling.
The gardens, designed to blend in perfectly with the surrounding landscape, consisting of a lawn with lavender, rosemary and broom borders. The sunny pool faces the views and is surrounded by a teak and grey stone paved area.
The single level house is made up of 6 parts, all internally linked to each other. Every part has a large French Window that opens directly onto the garden. The architectural and volumetrically conformation is typical of a row of barns, and is commonly found in the north of Italy, but not in Umbria normally: rectangular plan, vertical brick structures, covered by a double layer roof. The overall effect is one of great beauty and originality, making every holiday here a truly unique experience. A 7th private part (loft style) can be added to the house which makes the house a comfortable villa for 8 with 2 single beds for kids to make it a 10 guests villa. The house has floor cooling.
Other interesting details, aside from the use of sophisticated materials, furnishings and designer lighting are: the large Jacuzzi in the master bedroom, encased in a teak deck; the new-generation projector in the sitting area with a large screen (ideal for watching films and documentaries); a perfectly equipped outdoor area for barbecues, grills and cooking in the wood-oven; Great attention has also been paid to functionality and technological comfort- from the accessories, to the high-tech electrical appliances that have been chosen for the kitchen, wifi connection throughout, various audio–visual systems ( projector/cd with large screen and dolby surround, lcd tv with Apple TV, dvd player, hifi, cd player, Ipod, Iphone cable).
This is a real unique and one of a kind place in Umbria!
