Best of all, the villa sits in its own four acres of luscious private gardens.
The classical stone structure of Villa Filippo creates an atmosphere of stability and serenity. Inside, the home is composed of gorgeous, traditional terracotta floors, cream walls and soothing greys and teals which capture the sense of a gentle morning sky. Glorious French doors in practically every room ensure the spaces are flooded with sunlight and the outdoors is only ever a few steps away.
An elegant main living room focuses around a magnificent fireplace, with graceful, yet comfortable, antiques creating a wonderful setting to relax and connect.

The fully-equipped kitchen has a wonderful old-world charm with a wood-burning stove and French doors that open out to the patio.
The seven bedrooms are split across the main villa and two annexes. Each of the annexes has its own kitchenette – perfect for those seeking a little extra privacy. Each annex has a queen suite with one also offering a cosy fireplace and soaking tub. All the bedrooms are bright and airy with beautiful antiques and individual character. In the main villa, there are two queen suites with sumptuous tubs and two twins. A further suite contains a unique French bed with an antique headboard – perfect for a single adult or two kids.
Outside awaits a beautifully lit terrace: a dell of warm ambience and splendour as the night draws in. Here you’ll find a grand al fresco dining table and a cosy sitting area with spectacular views.
