PIEVE DEL BORGO 6+2

Emilia Romagna - Forlì - Cesena - SANTA SOFIA

Description:

PRIVATE STRUCTURE (lease only). The first thing to strike you about Pieve del Borgo must be its old history, noticeable right from the large external gate. A Byzantine fortress in the IV century AD, it was a castle belonging to the Abbey of Sant'Ellero during the papacy of Innocent III. Set among the wooded Romagna hills, where the only noise is that of the wind and the flowing river, Pieve del Borgo is today unique in its kind, having passed, from 1400 onwards, under various dominions, such as the Florentine Republic, the Grand Duchy of Tuscany (until 1859) and the Province of Florence up until 1923. Strolling among the gardens that were once a meeting point of culture and tradition, gazing out over the valley, sleeping in the renovated sacristy, being enthralled by the deconsecrated church: all this is Pieve del Borgo and is possible thanks to more than 25 years of intense work, of thousands of stones laid with sweat and toil, of tons of dug-up earth, of materials chosen to guarantee a non-invasive restoration and to an enormous passion and respect for its history, noticeable in every corner of this incredible place. PIEVE DEL BORGO HAS BEEN SUBJECTED TO A CHECK-UP BY A TECHNICAL RESPONSIBLE BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF THE SEASON, TO ENSURE CONSISTENCY OF THE DESCRIPTION, ACCESSORIES LISTED ON THIS PAGE AND THEIR PRESENT STATE OF OPERATION/MAINTENANCE, TO GUARANTEE QUALITY, CLEANLINESS AND COMFORTS TO ALL CLIENTS WHO WILL STAY HERE.

Interior:

The villa has two floors. The main entrance, on the ground floor, leads directly into the living room and then on to the kitchen. A study on the ground floor, like the large living room, has direct access out to the panoramic garden with a beautiful portico furnished with table and chairs for outdoor meals and where you can also relax with a good book. This part of the villa is completed by a bathroom with shower. The living room also leads to an area of the villa with outside access, a bathroom with shower and a double loft bed reached by a characteristic wooden ladder. The ground floor is completed by the deconsecrated 15th century church, rectangular with typical thick walls and reachable from both inside and outside, with a large sitting room with TV area. An internal staircase leads up to the first floor with two double bedrooms and a bedroom with two joinable single beds. This floor is completed by a bathroom with shower.

Park:

On one of the peaceful mounts of the pleasant Apennines stands Pieve del Borgo, the ideal place for those seeking the pure sweet air of the woods amongst the thousand scents of this splendid countryside. The park of the villa extends for about 10,000 sq m over various terraces of which 3,000 sq m are maintained as a private garden with many varieties of tall trees and plants. Around the garden are various relaxation areas and a comfortable portico furnished with table and chairs where you can dine immersed in a country context unique in its kind. Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.

Swimming Pool:

The welcoming heated pool, about 20 m from the villa, is set within the garden and guarantees absolute privacy. The irregular rectangular pool has just one paved border, 2 m wide, and steps for access to the water. It measures 9 x 3,5 m with a constant depth of 1,25 m and has salt purification. The sunbathing area is equipped with sunbeds and you can play or just relax in the manicured lawn surrounding it. The pool is available from the last Saturday of April to the first Saturday of October.

9/10
Has the property matched your expectations?
The villa was beautiful and was just what we hoped it would be. The gardens and the pool were perfect. The lack of a proper oven in the kitchen was the only thing that was missing.

It is large, room enough for 8 people to do their own thing without bothering others. The pool is one of the best we have ever seen but quite a distance from the house if you're older or not surefooted. Plenty of lights, inside and outside.

L'unicità della location (una ex parrocchia immersa nella pace delle colline romagnole) il silenzio, la natura tutt'intorno e la tranquillità. E la storia, che ogni pietra della casa raccontava. Poi una piscina a sfioro, nuova di zecca, con vista sulla vallata.
Do you have any suggestions to improve the property?
Trattasi di struttura "complessa" ma già perfettamente fruibile in tutte le sue parti.
