San Clemente a dream house
Paola and Paolo, the “creative team” at Fattoria del Colle transform the San Clemente apartment into a romantic love net, it’s comfortable, young but with a sensation of a “Tuscan grandma”
San Clemente is at the top of the hill behind Fattoria del Colle slightly above the swimming pools and the tennis court. It is surrounded by Sangiovese vineyards and olive groves, in the distance the Val d’Orcia and Crete Senesi hills as far as Montalcino and Siena. The silence is practically noisy, and there is a sensation as if one is in a film regarding Tuscany so beautiful is the panorama.
The stone and brick farmhouse, on the outside is just the same a sit was in share cropping times. From a court yard where there are tables and chairs one goes
up a staircase to the two apartments: Sentiment and San Clemente. The same saint, one name is his real one the other the medieval local version.
The San Clemente apartment has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a lounge with dining area with coking corner. The furniture is antique, there are 19th century prints, modern furnishings for the lounge, all mixed harmoniously so as to form a welcoming ambiance. The colour of the walls the furnishings and the mixing of the furniture give one
the sensation of having already been here. Basically upon entering you feel at home, like going back to your Tuscan grandma’s farmhouse. Paolo and Paola – she is accountant, he is a gardener – have once again done magic!
