* 3 of the properties are intimately linked to form part of one single structure. It is known that this building was the first to be built in Celle in the year 1594 and a carving of this date is etched on the archway of Filomena. It is thought that in its earlier years it was a convent and that the cellars were used to produce wine and olive oil from the land.
The 1st property we refurbished was Il Capriccio and this stands apart from the others but still in the same location, at the top of the village. The living room is on the first floor, on the same level as the bedrooms and has an interconnecting door that links to an additional 2 bedrooms and a shower room. We describe this as Il Capriccio 7 + 1 and has the same price structure as our 3 bedroom Filomena.
The Butterfly House is NEW for 2015. It is a detached 2 bedroom house that stands in its own private garden and olive grove. It is located adjacent to Il Capriccio.
The properties have been lovingly restored from their derelict state, by local craftsmen to include all the modern day appliances while maintaining the traditional Tuscan charm. Each have their own features and there is a wealth of high ceilings, original floors, chestnut beams and stone fireplaces for those choosing a winter break. The thick walls and the shutters keep the properties cool in the heat of the day. Full central heating ensures a comfortable stay during the cooler months.
