SANT'ANNA DEL VOLTERRAIO:
- A magnificent oasis of peace and tranquility.
- Stunning views.
In a splendid amphitheatre formed by the Volterraio valley a number farmhouses and barns, both in the valley and on the surrounding hills, were carefully restored during the 1980s. "Pergoli", dating back to the 18th century, is one of these old country farmhouses. It is built in stone and has been completely renovated respecting ancient Tuscan traditions with plastering in natural colours, floors and brickwork in antique terracotta and old chestnut beams. The house is located inside the National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago, it is situated on the hills overlooking the village of Bagnaia and is part of the Sant'Anna del Volterraio complex. It overlooks the valley and is in a panoramic location, facing west, with sweeping views across the bay of Portoferraio, Mount Capanne, the north west coast of Elba, and as far as the northern tip of Corsica. There are amazing sunsets.
The building is on two floors, for a total of about 110 sq.m. net walkable: on the ground floor a typical Tuscan kitchen with pantry, living room with fireplace, two bedrooms, a bathroom. On the first floor, accessed by a staircase in chestnut there is a bedroom, a bathroom and an small open loft. The areas outside the building are attractive and unique, large covered patio with access to the kitchen and dining room, small cellar, storeroom, and a beautiful old wood fired oven, large car port and a gazebo in a wonderful location consisting of a bedroom and bathroom.
Independent electric radiator heating in every room, air conditioning, alarm system, the nearby Villa Sant'Anna 2 km away where there is a swimming pool, clubhouse and tennis courts.
The detached house is surrounded by 10,000 square meters of land which is completely fenced in, terraced and planted with ancient olive trees, cork oaks, arbutus. The access road ends at the house.
Not even the photos and an extremely accurate description can convey the idea of the uniqueness of the "location". It is a magical place, far from noise, isolated but still close to the sea, with incredible views and sunsets.
