Spacious, flooded with sunlight, kitchen enjoys gas cooker and oven, ample counter space, and clothes washer , pantry.

Both ensuite baths have drop showers and old English fittings, bidets, 1 claw foot tub. Beds are proper Matrimoniale & Queen mattresses vs 2 singles pushed together. Armoires, chest of drawers. Space for baby cot & single bed.
As with all Italian properties, price excludes wood at €20/day and gas which is charged at cost and read off the meter at the end of your stay.
The house, while restored, is old. 500 years old. Things are delicate - chains on toilets need to be pulled gently, ancient doors bolted properly, boilers reset now and again. Our couches aren't sealed; our floors aren't polished, so we only eat in the kitchen or on the balcony & are looking for similarly considerate guests so that the apartment maintains its fresh natural charm. If you appreciate a simple uncluttered ambiance (and share our hatred of plastic shower curtains and overly lacquered modern floor tiles!) our home is for you. However, If you need a place to bang and crash around or eat Nutella in bed or couldn't really give a toss about understated elegance maybe a place that can withstand the wear and tear might be better suited for you. No smokers please. And if you like cats and our big German Shepherds, all the better. Thank you for reading!
PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU ARE A SINGLE TRAVELER OR A COUPLE AND DON'T NEED THE SECOND BEDROOM/BATH AND WE WILL DISCOUNT THE RATE :)

The nomadic Yank met the workaholic Brit in China, courted throughout Asia, married in Bali, made a family in Hong Kong, jumped from Bangkok, Tokyo, HK & Sing, quit & traveled Africa & South America, (and worked some more, let's be realistic), sat on a beach at the earth's end and found out they weren't keen to live in each other's home countries, played 'where would you want to live if you could never go home?,' narrowed it to two, spent a month house hunting in each, chose Italy, restored a grand old property, made it their permanent home, are blessed to have friends from far and wide swinging by all the time. As lifelong backpackers, the more people we share this beautiful home with, the more magical a place it becomes...
