The house was carefully restored by the well known designer Ilaria Miani who according to her own words „cherishes a free flow between indoors and outdoors“. The living room with it's handsome fireplace opens to the terrace. The "al fresco" dining area seats 16 people with a built-in barbecue. The extended vine pergola is perfect for drinks at sunset while enjoying the exquisite views of the valley.
