In an ideal position for exploring the coast of the Cinque Terre, Liguria and Northern Tuscany. This 4 hectares property is an idyllic cultivated dell hidden in the oak woods on a hill high above the sea with two houses giving accommodation for 10. You can enjoy our recently built a 10m * 3m swimming pool shared with our Concara guests. The property is ideal for two families as they have common grounds and sperate kitchens. The estate produce a fine natural red wine called 'Margot'.
The two houses, called Dolina and Dolinetta, have been recently been renovated and converted, and both face a wide lawn in front of the estate's small vineyard. The vineyard has been planted on a tiny verdant plain that is a feature of this limestone landscape. The surrounding woods were once all cultivated and are criss-crossed with beautiful dry-stone limestone walls, so thick they form raised paths. We have been carefully restoring these old walls and re-introducing crops, carefully chosen to fit the landscape and the situation. You'll find fruit trees dotted around the older oak and pine, and small, walled fields of bean plants, or potatoes. The houses have also been given a new, green life and are self-sufficient for both electricity and hot water, making this a very ecological place to stay.
Dolina accommodates 6 and has wide furnished pergola, the ideal place for outside dining, shades the front of the house. The ground floor is one extended living area with the kitchen on the left and, to the right, a living area. The kitchen has a beautiful long window running the length of the end wall, giving a panoramic view of the gardens to the side of the house. In the centre and back of the room, stairs lead to the top floor, where a double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, with a small bath, and a twin bedroom has doors leading onto a terrace. This terrace has a lovely overview of the gardens and vineyard. A third bedroom, at the back of the house, is also a twin and has doors leading out to the garden. At the back of the house there is also a further large shower room.
Dolinetta accomodate 4. The front of the house has a lovely pergola, shaded with vines. A table sits under the pergola while further along there are sun loungers. The central room is entered from either side via large doors; there is a kitchen area at the back, on the right, with a dining table and chairs in front. To the left comfortable armchairs mark the living room area, with a Satellite TV on the wall. The bedroom on the left is a double, with a window to the front, and an en-suite shower room at the back. The other bedroom mirrors this but is a twin, and also has an en-suite shower room to the back.
The guest will have access to all the property.
