Finally, the property has several agricultural buildings measuring 100 sq.m in total.
State and finishing
The property is in reasonable condition, the buildings having been periodically restored: the part of the villa dates from the 16th century and was originally a military safe-house, in other words, a fortified stately home; purchased in 1989, it has been restored over time including the total refurbishment of the roof in 2012-2013. The part which is used as tourist accommodation was built in 1976 and refurbished in 2007, together with the residential building next to the chapel.
The property includes 1.3 hectares of private land. A large part of this is an orchard, and there is also a large parking area for holiday farm guests, around 500 sq.m of garden, the pool - measuring 5.2 x 10.5 metres - situated on a panoramic terrace with view of Montferrat’s hills and a beach volleyball court.
For those interested, there is also the opportunity to purchase a further hectare of land with vineyard.
