Gli Archi

The apartment was converted from the rooms on the ground floor of a large brick-farmhouse once serving as stables and a tool shed. The entrance opens onto the dining room that is separated from the kitchen by an arch and also provides access to a single bedroom with private bathroom; the original wood-beamed and cotto-tiled ceiling of the rooms was carefully restored and preserved.
Two steps lead from the dining room into two double-bedrooms and a second bathroom that were converted from the former location of a Chianina cow-shed. The original ceiling, consisting of small flared brick arches, and a large round arch that originally separated the actual shed from the entrace where farmers kept all necessary tools and in turn met in the cold winter-nights in what was known as the “veglia” (wake) to chat, sing and dance to the sound of an accordion and thus streghten relationships amongst different families, were carefully preserved. The first bedroom includes the above area and the arch whose smooth and worn brick-corners bear testimony to the continuous passing of bovines in the past centuries.
The other bedroom was converted from the remaining part of the shed and opens out onto a small garden in the back of the house. One further single bedroom is located next to the dining-room/kitchen. The apartment may sleep six people and can provide guests with comfort and space both inside and outside. A small gazebo equipped with table and chairs standing on the lawn leading to the swimming-pool right in front of the entrance to the apartment is reserved for guests to eat and relax outdoors.
