Description

A formal courtyard forms the heart of Barco around which the living accommodation is situated. Located within walking distance of the 'Centre' where the Osteria, Stables and Tennis Court are to be found and yet very private. There is easy flow from inside to outside, with a dining room opening at either end to access the 18 x 4.5 metre swimming pool, which nestles within the gardens a few steps down from the terraces, and next to which is a custom-built spa bath. A gazebo covered viewing platform in the garden provides a breath-taking 360 panorama that includes a 'close up' of not one but two castles, that of Castello di Reschio and of Sorbello across the valley in Tuscany. It is open plan with a mezzanine floor and has a covered loggia with panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. It is located within easy strolling distance of the Reschio Centre where the Osteria, stables and tennis court are located. Reschio is a thriving, family-run estate whose history can be traced back to the beginning of the 11th Century. Hidden amongst the hills and valleys of Reschio are nine houses available to let, from small cottages to substantial palazzos, forming part of the over two dozen properties completed to date. Restored by the Bolza family from ancient farmsteads into breath-taking, light-filled modern houses, each is hidden at the end of miles of winding, private bridleways and set within its own landscaped Mediterranean gardens. Amongst the most well-appointed properties in Italy, the Reschio houses are country havens where privacy, seclusion and proximity to nature have not come at the expense of comfort, technology and service. At the entrance to the estate lies the imposing Castle which once guarded the Umbrian-Tuscan border. Today it awaits restoration but still houses the estate winery where every autumn the grape harvest is brought to be pressed. The working heart of the Estate lies a little further along the cypress-lined driveway. Here, beneath the Castello, Reschio's renowned stables and its private Osteria and Bottega can be found. From here, miles of winding private estate bridleways take you up into Reschio's hills and valleys where wild boar, deer, porcupine, pheasant, partridge and hare thrive in the ancient oak forests.
