Cosmic Villas is pleased to showcase this lovely property within the small mediaeval village of Anghiari.
The property was built in the 1600s and consists of three units: a monastery that housed Camaldolesi monks for over a thousand years, a home spread over three levels with private terracotta terraces, and a beautiful stone cottage around 30m apart from the main building.
These intriguing structures have extensive and varied histories. They have been rebuilt with sensitivity to their heritage, retaining many ancient characteristics such as floor tiles, stone steps, and solid wooden trusses.
Surrounding the houses are well-maintained landscaped gardens with a wide variety of colourful blooms and a further five acres of woods with one of the valley's oldest cypresses and many resident squirrels, hares, deer, pheasants, and owls.
This strong connection to nature is one of the property's standout features, where guests can relax in the sun by the large outdoor swimming pool, hide away in a small wooden snug tucked among the olive trees, play in the children's playground with hammocks and games, or dine al fresco on a veranda surrounded by roses.
The family who renovated this magnificent house is incredibly passionate about each visitor's experience and encourages you to indicate any demands you may have before you come so that they can give you the finest tailor-made service.
To ensure the culinary legacy is fully appreciated, the owners can arrange meals, wine and oil tastings at several of the area's oil mills and vineyards.
