ideal for holidays with family and friends
This traditional Farmhouse put side by side the manor with a little hay barn now transformed in a charming studio apartment. Surrounded by scented lavenders, roses, brooms and rosemaries you can enjoy from the terraces incomparable landscapes on the quiet Tuscan countryside where tidy wheat, sunflower, tobacco and vegetable fields alternate vineyards, olive groves, nut and cherry woods.
Sitted al-fresco of the shaded pergola the view ranges across the medieval hilltop village of Monterchi and Lippiano, with its perfect restored Renaissance Castle, while the walled village of Monte Santa Maria Tiberina looks out, unchanged by centuries, the peaceful flow of country life in this delightful corner of Valtiberina.
The recent restoration has added comfort and neatness to the original Tuscan flavour, completely meeting with thermal-acoustic isolation criteria. Floors and ceilings have been realized with classic Tuscan terracotta, while the original chestnut beams, the large fireplaces and the stone walls testify the ancient charm. The sunny interior paint and the original beds from the 1900s enhance glamour and warm atmosphere to every room. The environment preservation has been the inspiring principle to realize solar panels and the anti-magnetic electrical system.
For a perfect stay at Casa Rughino we have realized a swimming pool with a stunning view on surrounding hills, large solarium and shaded terrace. And for dinner ... barbecue under the pergola with view on Monterchi.
In the manor (“casa padronale”) there are two spacious apartments - apartment Sun and apartment Moon - and a double room - Aurora -, all with their own terrace and independent access but attached to each other with lockable interconnecting doors.
On the other side of the garden apartment Sky, with its lovely loft, has been created from the former hay barn (“fienile”).
In the whole complex there are 8 rooms with 2 or 3 beds (all rooms may be made up as twin or double on request), 5 bathrooms and 3 fully equipped kitchens. Every accommodation has magnificent views, table and chairs for outside relax, 2 rooms have French windows to terraces. Each apartment is equipped with single heating. The furnishings have been carefully selected with original pieces from the 1900s and new ones skilfully handmade by local craftsmen. Every accommodation is high standard, functional and supplied with linen and towels.
