La Duchessa is a farmhouse situated just outside the town of Gualdo, which was restored with a great care by a group of local artisan builders using old stones, tiles and wooden beams retrieved in the property. The farmhouse had been uninhabited for nearly 40 years, but now it is a charming and comfortable modern holiday villa with an amazing view over surrounding towns and Sibillini mountains.
The main entrance is from the car park going down a few steps to the ground floor, but there is another one at the first floor, at the same level of the parking area.
On the ground floor of the main house there are a fully equipped kitchen, a dining room (furnished with antique rural furniture), and a lounge area with open fireplace, stereo-set with CD player and bluetooth connectivity for your mobile music devices. On the first floor there are a double bedroom, a twin bedroom, a bathroom with a shower, and a second spacious sitting/study room with a comfortable sofa/bed, which leads up to the master bedroom on the second/top floor with a luxury en-suite bathroom (double basins, a huge bath and a separate walk-in shower).
On the ground floor of the outbuilding there are a laundry, a bathroom with shower, and a pool equipment room and upstairs there is an independent twin bedroom.
Outside you can also find a carefully restored original bread/pizza oven and if you would like to dine al fresco, you can enjoy your meal under the pergola top just outside the kitchen or under the loggia in front of the swimming pool.
Wireless internet connection is available throughout the house.
