We have 6 holiday rental apartments built into the south facing wing of Palazzo Rosso. The 400 year old building was completely and lovingly restored in 2006, retaining all original features such as beams, solid stone walls, fireplaces etc.
During the restoration we installed solar panels to produce both electricity and hot water and a heat pump heating/cooling system to ensure that the entire building would be completely energy efficient and independent.
There is a 300 square metre, 10 metre high beamed barn for guest use, paved with local stone. A 13.5×6 metre pool with jacuzzi jets was installed in the spring of 2008. There are extensive gardens for guests on both sides of the building, as well as an orchard and paddocks for our animals, which include Horses, Ponies, Donkeys, Cows, Sheep, Goats, Pigs, Chickens, Turkeys, Geese, Ducks and Cats and Dogs ! The building faces south and has views out over our farmland, with a river and the Berici hills to the west, the Villa courtyard garden to the north and our 15 acre Vineyard to the east.
There is also a 110 square metre Common room on the ground floor with a kitchen and table for 14, bathroom with shower, computer and printer, Tv, Nintendo Wii and Playstation 3, Pool table and Table Football. On the first floor there is also a very big covered outdoor terrace (140 square metres) with tables and chairs and a great view out over the south facing garden, pool area, paddocks and our farm.
