Vakantieappartement met zwembad Fonte 2 Monteverdi Marittimo
Two Bedroom Ground Floor Apartment Tuscany Coast
Fonte 2 is a delightful apartment and adjacent annex, one half of a lovely stone house on a beautiful estate in the heart of the countryside yet within walking distance of the medieval hilltop village of Monteverdi Marittima and close to the Tuscan coast and its fine beaches. Within the vast grounds of the estate is a large swimming pool and plenty of areas for relaxing and enjoying the sun and surroundings. Another highlight is the unique heated swimming pool covered with a wonderful travertine vaulted ceiling.Fonte 2 has its own terrace area and barbeque and is comfortably furnished with many artistic touches.
The estate itself is home to an amazing and internationally famous artist who lives in the main Florentine style villa. Examples of his work can be seen in a large garden on the estate, practically an open air gallery displaying bronze and travertine statues both favourite materials of the artist. With great care and attention the owner has transformed lovely stone houses on the estate into pretty apartments. He has personally overseen all the restorations and added many of his own artistic touches creating lovely accommodation in a simplistic, unique and comfortable style, whilst retaining original characteristics such as exposed stone walls and adding some interesting turn of the century furnishings.
Fonte 2, one half of a gorgeous characteristic stone house, is a lovely apartment with an adjacent annex. Fonte 2 has its own terrace area complete with table, chairs and barbeque for dining al fresco and enjoying a pretty view over the garden area with examples of the owners art.
