By the turn of the millennium, this 230-year-old building for sale served as a farmhouse until lovingly refurbished and transformed into this magical retreat. Situated among mature pine trees on a plot, the property is only 4 km from a small town that offers all the necessary amenities.
During the restoration work, great efforts were made to preserve the original character of the building while adding all the modern conveniences and amenities of a modern hotel. Several steps lead to the front door, which leads to the sunny vestibule and the reception area, leading to the restaurant with access to the garden and pool.
The interior walls are painted in a sophisticated blend of blue and ocher, while the earthy tones of the flooring blend beautifully with the wooden beams to create a relaxing atmosphere. During the winter season, guests love to gather in the hotel’s high-ceilinged living rooms, enjoying the warm atmosphere created by the large wood-burning stove.
This restored farmhouse for sale is located on the edge of private gardens bordered by hundreds of Mediterranean pine trees. This area has a large swimming pool with adjoining terraces and seating areas. Also strung between tree trunks are hammocks swaying in the wind, as well as a table tennis table and trampoline to improve balance and fitness. On the way back to the main building, there is also a patio surrounded by lush vegetation and old stone walls, perfect just to sit and enjoy the sounds of the countryside.
On the first and second floors there are eight spacious rooms, six of which have gable beamed ceilings, another with a private terrace, and two with an attic with an extra bed. The separate cottage also has a ninth room, which also has an attic and a large futon bed.
Apart from its own charm, the location of the apartment also makes it a very attractive opportunity for a hotelier looking for a small managed business in a sector that is expanding. The historic building is an ideal base from which to explore the nearby mountains and local areas. The paths lead through pine forests, offering ideal trails for walkers, cyclists and horse riders, and caving, rock climbing and orienteering are some of the other popular sports in the area.
