Lovingly renovated in 2012, Casa Verde is set in a stunning and very private location (the owner lives off-site). The lovely garden is the perfect place to relax and unwind in the sun, perhaps on the covered terrace which has sweet-smelling jasmine, honeysuckle and wisteria growing across the roof.
Unusually for a smaller house in this area, Casa Verde has its own private salt-water swimming pool, bordered by lavender and olive trees, and in the perfect spot for drinking in the magical views.
Inside, the house is an appealing mix of traditional and contemporary style, and offers all modern creature comforts including wifi. Casa Verde has been beautifully but simply decorated and furnished, with locally sourced materials used wherever possible. There is a cosy open-plan kitchen and sitting room with beams, wood-burning stove and terracotta tiled floors. The kitchen is well-equipped featuring hand-made, pink marble-topped units with plenty of preparation space.
Upstairs are two attractively furnished, double bedrooms with pale wooden floors and beams. There is crisp white cotton bed linen, feather pillows, quilts and extra blankets for cooler months. The small but airy, contemporary-style bathroom features open-ended shower finished in beautiful, traditional Tuscan tiles with soft towels.
In a little side room downstairs there is a rather intriguing fresco - a convincing copy of locally-born Renaissance artist, Piero della Francesco's 'The Resurrection of Christ.' But no-one seems to know who put it here at Casa Verde!
The house is easily accessible, off a tarmac road and has parking for two cars. The villages of Lippiano and Monterchi are nearby with all key amenities.
