Set into the concave of the rock, you can sleep 4 with the right furnishings & layout. Mind you, we’d toss all the furnishings & re-imagine this in a modern, sleek style, with pure white everything, inside & especially out, giving that exterior a good scrubbing & adding carefully considered, very pure architectural elements to bring it to life. We would whitewash the interior woodwork & accent it with steel & marble, creating a clean, uncluttered look, letting the stone speak for itself.
I would install light grey wood-look plank tile flooring to visually expand & lighten up the space & replace the kitchen light fixture with something more simple & elegant. Imagine stone flower boxes along the top terrace edge with flowers tumbling down in an explosion of color! The architectural & artistic potential of this property has been completely un-exploited & is just waiting for someone with vision & imagination!
The ancient village has a number of palazzos, a convent, fountains, & lively square & markets. The area is popular with hikers & skiers & tourists seeking a slower pace. While this is a rather humble village, it’s very well kept & enjoyable & not derelict at all, with a school, markets, post office, etc. There are several restaurants & shops in this untouched village, you won’t encounter hoards of tourists clogging its narrow, cool, shaded streets. You’ll find a simple way of life here, where everyone knows each other, where the restaurants serve only locally available produce & you’ll look forward to the annual Chestnut festival!
This is a very cool thing… worth a look & a think.
