Boasting picture-book views from every window, all the suites are spaciously laid out (most comprise two rooms), furnished with 5-star box spring beds (king size, 180 cm wide with a mattress depth of 40 cm and luxurious toppers), an open fireplace or bio-ethanol fireplace, individually designed with designer fabrics from Tricia Guild and Kenzo and antique Persian rugs from the owner-family‘s own valuable collection.
The suites all have exposed natural stone walls and Serena stone edging, temperature and humidity regulating adobe-clad walls and glossy, silky-smooth stucco lustro, centuries-old cotto floors or parquet flooring made from old wine barrels, individually adjustable air conditioning, flat screen LED televisions and Broadband Internet access (LAN).
All the suites have luxurious bathrooms (some integrated into the room) finished in hand-selected marble and appointed with XL showers with chromotherapy rain shower heads, handmade marble shower bases, freestanding washbasins set on custom-made marble tables and partially freestanding designer cast stone bathtubs. Each with a window boasting breathtaking views, the bathrooms offer the perfect place to linger and relax.
“We wanted rooms that surprise our guests – rooms made up of elements that cannot simply be bought. We wanted the craftsmanship of those we have been working together with for years to be clearly visible. There are no mass-produced, built-in wardrobes, but rather they are all hand-made, one-off pieces created by carpenters. We bought a lot of the furniture from flea markets and at auctions and then had it refurbished “Vitigliano-style” (greige in colour and with a weathered look). In Italy it is much easier to find affordable old materials and things and devoted craftsmen who carry out restoration work. We have combined these furnishing with some classic pieces, which we have always liked, from the Bauhaus era, for example. We were absolutely uncompromising when it came to the beds and chose highest-quality box-spring beds. Our favourite fabrics have always been those from Designers Guild. And we decided on marble for the bathrooms, since it is quarried in Carrara, less than 2 hours from here.”
