Fonte delle Monache -- "The Nun's Spring" Farmhouse has all Italy has to offer in a deftly restored farmhouse built over an ancient spring near Montefino. Lovely restoration is modern but traditional. Far from crowds, with complete privacy, but close to recreational activities and Rome. Beaches AND mountains. Foodie paradise.
This house is completely restored but has retained traditional charm. It is set up like a luxurious personal home, not like a summer beach dorm rental. There is a pizza oven and two indoor fireplaces. There are 2 terrace and not a single bad view in the house! It is fully equipped for cooking, including an American-sized refrigerator/freezer. There is closet space and the two bedrooms are large. There is a sofa bed in the living room for a third couple (where there is a full bath). In the completely renovated and upgraded back terrace and garden area there, is a brand new 6 meter diameter pool -- with stunning views – – perfect for cooling off after the beach. The gardens and fountain create an atmosphere of serene 'dolce vita' with color, scents and soothing sounds as you sip wine and view the gorgeous mountains in your own casale with an olive grove in complete privacy.
I have been redecorating so new interior pictures will continue to be added as this is a work in process. As you can see, the interior is quite lovely and it will only get better!

Outras coisas a ter em conta
2 fireplaces which may be available, as long as the caretaker gives you a proper instructions and is satisfied that you will be able to use them properly (subject to schedule needs). There will be wood available. The home has central heating and a modern kitchen so using these fireplaces is by choice.
I expect you to treat Fonte Monache the way you would your own home. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOME FOR FAMILIES WITH YOUNG CHILDREN WHO WILL NOT BE SUPERVISED ON THE BACK TERRACE WHERE THE POOL IS LOCATED. This is merely for the best supervision possible; though there is a lock, on the door to the terrace from the house, and the back path is incredibly difficult terrain.
Italy's garbage rules, are easy. Dispensers are marked.
Gypsy, dreamer, liberal, recent empty-nester of two adorable babies who grew up to be interesting adult dinner partners. Have lived overseas. Open-minded, but Mama didn't raise a fool. Have been a world traveler enough to know that "When in Rome..." Move between Washington DC and my little farm in Italy, as well as other traveling. Have eclectic tastes -- but not do not like horror movies.
