Over the last two years we have been following the renaissance of this charming old farmbuilding which has been restored with a great sense of easy living. The owner, an Italian who has lived in Brasil and works with India, has had a light hand in mixing and matching furniture, textiles and objects from 3 continents. Two large spaces occupy the ground floor. The kitchen runs along the entire width of the house, has windows or doors on 3 sides and organises itself around a large typically Tuscan farm table. The antique tiles behind the sink were discovered at the Arezzo flea market, the lamps above the table were brought back from India. French windows open onto the garden. The living room has a large fire place, french windows, white sofas and chairs and a colourful Indian dhurrie. The style is simple and comfortable, just as we like it. The upper floor is reached over the outdoor stairs which lead into a sunny upstairs living room and two bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. The view from the bedrooms is lovely: rolling hills and the charming town of Lucignano on the horizon. The annex, about 20 metres from the main building, houses another double bedroom with bathroom and private terrace. the material used here was made to order in India, to the design of the owner. At the back of the annex you will find a large laundry. The pool lies on a lower level of the garden down a gentle slope. The grey stone and dark turquoise colour of the water give this pool a very stylish look. There is a shower next to the pool. Small villas (this one sleeps 4 to 6 guests) with private pools are a rarity. Rocchetto is perfectly located, has great charm, and a lovely pool. Rocchetto can be rented with 2 or 3 bedrooms. If you rent the house with 2 bedrooms, the annex will be closed (and not rented to anyone else).
