Overview

About the property

4 DBL BEDR, 3 BTHRM + 1 CLOAKRM, 2 STG/DNG RM + 2 KITCHENS, SMALL ROCK POOL

12 kms to Spoleto central. Nearest village with all the facilities is Baiano, about 3 kms.

There is a large public pool, 5 kms along a quiet and beautiful country lane (easily driveable). There is also a restaurant, bar and a trattoria - excellent rates. Definitely worth visiting for the ultimate chill !!

NEWLY RESTORED FARMHOUSE, OWNED BY ONE OF THE MOST ILLUSTRIOUS FAMILES IN THE AREA – THEY BUILT THE LOCAL CHURCH, 600 YEARS AGO ! HERE YOU EXPERIENCE THE PURE HISTORY OF UMBRIA !

With WiFi, 2 fully fitted kitchens + dishwasher, washing machine etc.

Close to art and culture, great views, restaurants and dining, and family-friendly activities. You’ll love my place because of the outdoors space, the neighborhood, the light, the comfy bed, and the kitchen. Great for families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).

Unique rock pool 5 mts by 4 mts, fed from natural fountain in the nearby woods. It is not a clear water pool because the fresh water oxidises as soon as the sun shines on it. This is a totally natural and harmless process. Indeed, the Romans frequently bathed in green water because it is very good for the skin. The rock pool is continuously replenished with fresh water. So, enjoy living like a Romans did !

Public swimming pool with restaurant 5 kms from Rock Pool Cottage, in country – a beautiful walk or car drive. Daily rate for pool is 5 euros or 25 euros/week. The rate includes everything….sun-lounger, brolly etc.

This LUXURY farmhouse is ONLY rented as a whole villa to ONE party.

However, it should be noted that one tiny corner of this enormous detached farmhouse is not included in the holiday rental. This very small corner is owned by an Italian family, who sometimes visit at weekends. They are very quiet and unobtrusive. They have NO access to any of the private land that surrounds and belongs exclusively to the farmhouse. They have one small patio outside their front door. For this reason, dogs that are not human friendly should be kept on a lead, inside the house or in the large secure animal enclosure outside the house. This condition also applies to dogs that are not cattle friendly because the land is not fenced.

The farmouse comprises…..

a large self-contained bed-sitter for a person or couple, who wish for extra privacy…… Consists of :

2 single beds (can be joined by request)

fully fitted kitchen with dish-washer

shower room/WC

The rest of the villa consists of :

2 double bedrooms

1 twin bedroom – beds can be joined

2 bathrooms

1 cloakroom/WC

1 fully fitted kitchen with washing machine + dish-washer

Large lounge – seats 12

Large dining room – seats 12

2 outside dining areas – each seats 12

Private parking

Animals welcome

1 hectare of private land

This is a luxury property, owned by a local family, going back centuries.

NOTE THE ROCK POOL IS TOTALLY ORGANIC…

I should draw your attention to the fact that the rock pool is divided into 2 sections:

the 1st section is where the totally fresh water is but it is the smallest ie 1/3 of the size of the 5X4 structure. Just 1 person could sit here

the 2nd section is “more organic” looking ie not clear water

the fresh water constantly runs so the overall water is constantly replenished, albeit slowly

in the old days, this pool would have been used for keeping containers of food in to keep cool. And for animals to drink from. However, coming from London, I used to swim in the famous Hampstead Heath Ladies Pond, which was also “organic” looking. So, when you finished your swim, you would get out with a film of organic matter on you, which is excellent for your skin. Think seaweed face masks !

This is what made me decide to present this totally organic rock pool to the holiday rental market. A totally natural experience ! Who needs a fancy health spa ? This is as natural as you can get....

There is a wet room opposite the rock pool, so you can instantly shower, if you do not like organic matter on your skin!
