Amandola Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Sleeps 4/5 Spacious 2-bedroom/2-bathroom apartment
Beautifully finished apartment 5 minutes’ drive from Amandola. This newly converted 300-year-old stable accommodation in a traditional farmhouse retains many original features. The 90-square metre south-facing private garden terrace has stunning views of lake and mountains. It has table and chairs for al fresco dining and garden loungers for relaxing. It is completely fenced in and is safe for young children.This is the only apartment on the property so privacy is guaranteed. There is free Wifi internet. Great base for walkers/hikers/bikers. 40 minutes from Adriatic beaches/designer outlet shopping.
The apartment is arranged on one level, with two shallow steps leading into it from the front door. With thick external walls, it is naturally very cool in summer and warm in winter (there is an underfloor heating system for the cooler months). There is a 5.5-metre/18-ft above-ground swimming pool located on a separate terrace – perfect for cooling down after a long day’s sightseeing.
There are two double en-suite bedrooms, one with a king-sized bed, the other with 2 twin beds (this can be replaced by a king-size bed, if requested). The en-suite to the main bedroom has bath and separate walk-in shower; the second ensuite is a shower room. We can put an extra bed or cot in the main bedroom, if requested.
The living area is bright and comfortable with a DVD player and iPod dock and a selection of books (in English), games and DVDs. The well-equipped kitchen has a dishwasher, large fridge-freezer, full oven and hob and a microwave. The dining table can seat up to six. There is a small valuables safe in the main bedroom.

About Fiona Biggs
We are a Dutch-Irish couple who decided to improve the quality of our lives by moving to rural Italy. We enjoy welcoming guests to this wonderful area - we live in the main house on the property, so are always available (but not intrusive) if you need any information or assistance with any aspect of your stay.
Fiona Biggs purchased this apartment in 2005
Why Fiona Biggs chose Amandola
We love the undiscovered nature of this region of Italy and Amandola is a lovely, unspoiled place. The local people are friendly and helpful and eating out is delicious and inexpensive. Even at the height of the summer season there is no sense of being overrun by tourists. Authentic Italy at its best!
What makes this apartment unique
The 365° views of the lake and mountains, the clean air, friendly people and the sense of being a million miles away from centres of mass tourism.
