About Sylvia Hendriks

My name is Adalberta and I was born near the Trasimeno Lake but since I was young I lived in Milan. About 40 years ago my husband traveled very often to Terni for work purposes and he passed through this area, he fell in love with it and it really didn't need much to convince me to buy a ruin of an old country house.

The house was different from what it appears nowadays even though the centre is original and very old. The top part was destroyed by a grenada during the Second Worldwar, time and carelessness did the rest.

It took us two years to finish the restaurations and to complete the extension, the spacious sitting room was once a stable for big animals, the small bedrooms below were once stalls.

We furnished it with care and attention and my husband, who has a green thumb took care of the rose garden and he planted most of the big trees.

Milan is distanced and during the years, even though not as much as we would have liked, we spent here many happy and peaceful Summers. Our daughter, born in the city, played with the local children and learned all about lizzards and peeled knees..... Now its the time for our grand daughter and for all of them who wish to share this place with us and will appreciate the beauty of it.

Sylvia Hendriks purchased this chateau / country house in 1977

What makes this chateau / country house unique
