Two Bedroom Split level Detached Cottage Castiglion Fiorentino
Stefi G is a characteristic detached cottage on a pretty little estate, once a farming homestead, situated in a lovely position on a hill overlooking the valley beyond. The cottage apartment opens onto its own terrace and garden area in the well kept grounds, perfect for relaxing or dining al fresco and there is a barbeque close by. A few steps from the cottage is an azure swimming pool enjoying a gorgeous views of the countryside.
This lovely little estate has been fully restored and now forms just three apartments, two in the farmhouse and Stefi G cottage described here. A well thought out design of the grounds ensures that each apartment has its own area in the garden complete with table and chairs for dining al fresco, and the pretty swimming pool is shared only by the three apartments on the estate. Close to the pool is a built in barbeque for guests use and the attentive owners have added modern comforts such as satellite television, WiFi internet connection and covered parking.
Stefi G, which was originally a detached barn, has been converted into a lovely separate split level cottage furnished in characteristic country style. Arched glass patio doors open directly from the cottages terrace into the ground floor living room with settee (which converts to a double bed on request), fireplace and television, this leads to a kitchen area with dining table and chairs. On the same level is a twin bedroom (converts to a double on request) and ensuite shower room. A wooden staircase leads form the living room to the upper level where there is a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom. This double bedroom also has access directly into the garden below via external steps.
The cottage opens onto its own pretty terrace area in the garden which overlooks the pool and is shaded by a pergola, and furnished with table and chairs for dining al fresco. Just a few paces away is the lovely swimming pool (8m x 5m) which is surrounded by lawns and enjoys a fine view over the verdant valley beyond.
