When you arrive at this small but delightful property your immediate first impression is that you have walked into a fairytale. The little house is tall and narrow and is made of many different coloured stone, and it reminds you of the quaint little country cottages that are described in many traditional fairytales. It seems to be situated in an enchanted valley, surrounded by green rolling hills, with, on the horizon, a wonderful backdrop of gentle mountains which seem to be in perfect harmony with the silver river which meanders slowly across the valley. In the distance you can see fascinating little villages perched on the hillsides including the spectacular village of Francescano, with its stunning church completing the picturesque scene. Truly, today, there are very few of these beautiful natural landscapes which are still left unspoilt, and this small property is situated amongst one of the few remaining idyllic Italian dream locations
State of repair:
The property is in need of complete restoration, and currently has a proposed planning application which includes increasing the size of the property by an additional 100 sq mts.
