estate » staying » houses » casa delle suore CASA DELLE SUOREOnce perhaps this peaceful and very private property was a nunnery, the House of the Sisters. It has been restored to provide light filled rooms, well appointed to take advantage of the views of rolling wooded hills framed in each opening.

A courtyard with two ancient mulberry trees leads you into the accommodation and there are 4 bedrooms and spacious living areas on the ground and first floor. There are 2 separate guesthouses with en-suite bedrooms and attached to one is the laundry. The dining room with sliding glass doors at either end open completly with the doors disappearing into the walls allowing free flow from courtyard to pool.

Hiding beneath the splendid double height kitchen is a wonderful dome shaped wine cellar and it can be glimpsed through an ocular window in the polished cement floor of the kitchen.

The swimming pool leaps out at right angles from the pool lounge and a shallow stepped cascade leads you down to the 16m x 4m pool with three infinity edges. The woods approach the house and bordering the pool are old quince trees.
