With its light, bright interior and stunning wraparound roof terrace, Mazzo is a triumph of modern design along traditional lines, brought together through fabulous styling.
Mazzo is one of four private villas in a large, recently built country house close to Lake Trasimeno. The property looks out towards Montepulciano and the hills beyond, and is built in a traditional style, with modern design.
Both the exterior and the interior offer an appealing mix of old and new. The traditional cotto floors and beamed ceilings are mixed with vibrant design classics such as the yellow Gispen chairs in the living area and the Eames-style dining chairs. Antiques, industrial lighting and zings of colour add oodles of style, while the kitchen is expertly equipped with a large Smeg oven and fridge.
The villa sleeps six in three bedrooms and is ideal for a family or group of friends. It has its own big, private garden and a large, wraparound roof terrace with a dining area, plenty of space to relax and dreamy views to match. The stunning pool (12mx6m) is shared with Pozza, the villa below.
The two villas are jointly owned and can, alternatively, be booked together to create a private property and pool for 12 guests, with six bedrooms and five bathrooms (see Gazza). External stairs connect the two villas.
