grounds

There are terraces on all sides, each with its own dining table and breathtaking views.  A wisteria entwined tiled loggia provides a shady retreat and alternative place to eat. The 10m/ 30ft  diameter circular pool, surrounded by fragrant rosemary hedging and lemon trees, benefits from the sun for the entire day. Set amongst mature pines, cypress and olives, it enjoys tranquil views of the Tuscan and Umbrian hills in complete seclusion. In the adjacent little olive grove there is a bocce court. The gardens and grounds have been professionally landscaped and contain planting typical of Tuscany. Trees include some very old pines and almonds, cypresses, olives, acacias, oaks, figs and lemons in terracotta pots. There are box, lavender and rosemary hedges. The terraces have pergolas covered in vines, wisteria and Chilean bell-flowers,while roses climb on the house walls. The tranquil sound of running water is provided by a fountain.
