Introduction to our Rooms
We have made a conscious effort to maintain the original layout of the house and whenever possible the materials of its original construction. The rooms of the upper level have high ceilings and present views into the garden and the surrounding farmland, while the ones of the lower level enjoy the cool temperatures that only the thick stone walls and the proximity to the ground of traditional stone-built homes offer.
Because of the symmetry of the original structure and the fact that most internal walls are load-bearing, the four large rooms of the upper floor and the three of the lower do not have significant size differences. The only thing that changes from room to room is the orientation and whether the room has a balcony. One room is small compared to the others but it is a very charming room with double bed and one of the two rooms with a/c.
With the rennovations in 2005 and 2006 we tried to bring guests’ comfort to current standards, while keeping the original appearance and feel of the house. We improved sound insulation while keeping the original wooden floors, added antique furniture, new beds with Coco Mat orthosomatic mattresses and top-mattresses, redid the bathrooms with replicas of the original early 1900’s tiles and bathroom fittings.
And we have conciously avoided televisions.
