Villa Poggio ai Cipressi
Poggio Ai Cipressi is an elegant period villa set at the end of a private drive just minutes from the charming, lazy village of Colle Di Compito. An arch way leads into the immaculately kept walled garden in the middle of which sits this beautifully restored private home. It took more than 5 years just to bring back to there original glory the wonderful afreschi that cover the walls, but the effort was well worth it. On the first floor you can admire the view of the nearby village from the sitting room and compare to the beautifully painted image of its walls. The rooms are airy, with high ceilings, many with fireplaces and fantastic living spaces. Three air-conditioned bedrooms, the bathrooms are modern with a very high finish and you have every comfort that you would expect from this quality of a home. There is a large loggia for dining al fresco, for those more adventurous the villas original bread oven. There is an outside seating area with a gazebo and the private pool is set just outside the gated garden, hence secure for children.
