Agriturismo Il Pozzo
Apartment Melissa - 2 bedrooms, sleeps 4
At the back of the large house which is just on the edge of the woods, you reach the second floor without needing to use the stairway. Here there is the patio used by this apartment, which is slightly to one side of the house, and is surrounded by fuchsia coloured oleanders. There is a splendid vista of the swimming pool and over the valley. The entrance of the apartment is through the stone terrace, which has a wrought iron table and chairs and is covered by a vine covered pergola – shared with NIPPETELLA one breathes the romantic atmosphere straight away. Adorned by the colour pink, the maple furniture and a fireplace in the shape of stairs, it seems that you are walking through a magic door into a secret attic. In reality it leads the eye to the feature of this apartment, the wood beams along the high ceiling which is enhanced by a chandelier with crystal droplets. The entrance to the well equipped kitchenette which you can see to the left corner, is next to the entrance of the sleeping area. To the right is the romantic double bedroom with a four poster bed and a sitting area with a desk and arm chair for reading – the bathroom is en-suite. The bathroom itself is what remains from a military tower from the XII century, which was used as a lookout point and was connected across the Valley to the Ottoman tower in the village of Subbiano (on the other side of the river Arno) they worked together as look out points to safe keep and control the valley. To the left is a bathroom in shades of pink, which is in front of the twin bedroom with two old 90cm single antique iron beds made from sheets of iron, with ornate paintings on the headboard, or rather wrought iron with original inlays of mother of pearl from the late 1800’s – ‘my favourite!’
*SPONTANEOUS RUSTIC AND AROMATIC PERENNIAL HERB widely sought after by Bees! The flowers are white with shades of pale pink and can be used for tea infusions, whereas the leaves that have a smell similar to lemons are used for cooking.
