The Space

So close yet so far. This 1930's charming Italian villa estate is a real gem with a secret garden peaceful retreat like setting.This beautifully decorated private apartment suite is located on the ground level, off a garden area.
The original grand house was divided into 3 levels, so there are other respectful tenants on property. This unit is very private on it's own level.
The large main room/bedroom looks out on the lush surrounding foliage. There is a small alcove off the main room to hang your clothes and store your luggage
