NEW OPENING 2020
The restoration of the old stable has given new life to a location of great historical value. The apartment offers a location of extraordinary and unique beauty: on the ground floor of the main building of the Manor, the property overlooks the internal garden and therefore enjoys a wonderful view of the swimming pool and the surrounding medieval walls.
The original manger still masters the large open space that houses the kitchen, the large living area and the living room. The skilful restoration has brought it to light, preserving its original and historic brick and wood structure in the living area while in the kitchen area the manger has become a large worktop that was once the favorite corner of the Manor cattle that could enjoy fodder of the beautiful tuscan countryside.
Sensational is the large wall to which the manger in the living area rests, recovered as it was then, all in exposed stone. The high ceilings with wooden beams are illuminated by large period wrought iron chandeliers: the ceilings, as well as the floor, are made of ancient terracotta from florentine Impruneta area.
The rustic tuscan masonry kitchen consists of a grit sink, a large countertop recreated in the ancient manger and an induction hob: the refrigerator and the dishwasher are located in the wooden recesses of the kitchen where you will also find pots, oven microwave, kettle, toaster and everything you need to prepare a beautiful tuscan dinner! The whole wall of the kitchen is in ancient tuscan ocher-colored majolica which surrounds a beautiful and ancient bronze plate depicting a moment of rural life. Above the kitchen there is a wonderful hood in ancient chestnut beams set in the large and centuries-old collection of copper pots of the Manor.
The Living are, illuminated by four large lights, enjoys a suggestive atmosphere. The large tuscan table masters the living room and the feeling of living in an ancient stable is palpable thanks to the incredible restoration of the location that has left the entire structure of the original stable intact: original details such as the old yoke and the rural tools embellishes the living area . The living corner houses a large and comfortable leather sofa that can be transformed into a double sofa bed with 65 ” cable and satellite TV. The large leather sofa, comfortable for enjoying the TV corner, becomes a king sofa bed if necessary to use the living room as a possible third bedroom: the comfortable size of the sofa bed makes it perfect for resting for both adults and children. Period furniture, an ancient bathtub and Carrara marble console finish the living area with great charm. The load-bearing wall of the apartment, today as then finished in exposed stone, still has old vents, small openings in the wall, which served to circulate the air in the room, given the presence of the cattle.
The Groomer’s Room
The original master bedroom rests on the load-bearing wall with the old vents equipped with small wooden windows which, by circulating the air, make the environment naturally air-conditioned in summer and warm in winter given the wall thickness of over a meter. The room offers a large four-poster bed made of tuscan wood with cotton curtains, an antique wardrobe with period dressers, an old centenary trunk and the characteristic medieval lights that decorate particularly the room: the bedroom overlooks the courtyard of the Manor.
The Blacksmiths’ Room
The room offers a large big size bunk bed (195cmx85cm) in ancient fir, ideal for the stay of adults but also of children and teenagers: note the realization of the detail of the security lock in typical medieval style. A large wardrobe completes the room full of tuscan charm which also overlooks the courtyard of the Manor.
The large bathroom at the service of the apartment, made of tuscan majolica from florentine Impruneta area and expertly decorated, offers a large big size shower, toilet, bidet and sink which, to add a rustic tuscan style detail, is made of stone on ancient sewing machine and tuscan olive tree table.
