La Martina is a splendid rural home in rustic/contemporary style which arose from the renovation of an old farmhouse dating back to the early 19th century. The renovation work was carried out in full respect of the anti-seismic regulations in force. The use of materials such as wood, stone and cement combine in making La Martina a unique home, a style that is also reflected in the selection of the furnishings and colours, the old walls in stone and brick, the splendid ceilings in chestnut and exposed tiles, creating a particularly warm and welcoming environment. Of great effect is the contrast between the finishing touches: marble on the ground floor and parquet on the first floor, together with the light glass walkway, exalt the rusticity of the old structure. Large openings create constant communication between the inside and the outside, brightening the house, with the outdoor areas which can be used throughout the day. The large terrace on the first floor, entirely in wood and furnished with benches, allows you to enjoy the hilly landscape in a relaxing atmosphere.
MAIN HOUSE: The main entrance on the ground floor leads, on the right, to the dining room, to a bathroom with tub and anteroom with washing machine and to the kitchen with island and 12-seater table. To the left of the entrance is a large living room with fireplace and two brightly-lit windows which lead to a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower. A wooden staircase leads up to the first floor with the sleeping area consisting of three double bedrooms, two with en-suite bathroom with shower and one with adjacent bathroom with shower. One of the rooms has access to a balcony overlooking the front of the house. The sleeping area is completed by a large wooden terrace furnished with benches and with a view over the pool area. ANNEX: A few metres from the house is the annex with a double bedroom and a twin bedroom. The rooms have independent entrance and share a bathroom with shower. Inside the annex, but with access from the bedrooms, is the laundry room.
La Martina stands inside a fully enclosed property of about 12000 sq m with a tartufaia of about 320 truffle-producing trees. Fruit trees such as cherries, figs and plums, holm oaks, a carob tree and olive trees adorn the property. The land around the house is colourful and perfumed by lavender bushes. You can relax with an apéritif in the large outdoor dining area near the kitchen, shaded by a canopy, or in the seating area at the back of the house, near the pool, surrounded by the quiet of the countryside. In addition, covered and shaped parking area able to fit up to 4 cars is a guest disposal.
THE SWIMMING POOL
The swimming pool is set on a lower level with respect to the house which is about 10 m away and is reached down a flight of brick steps or across a short stretch of garden. The rectangular pool measures 9 x 5 m with a constant depth of 1,40 m; the area around the pool is paved in marble and provided with deckchairs and sunbeds which are also found in the adjacent sunbathing area in synthetic lawn and stones. The internal and external lighting and the presence of the outdoor seating area allow you to use the pool area in the evening and at night as well. The pool is lined in sky-blue mosaic and access to the water is via large steps. There is a cold-water outdoor shower. The pool is open from the last Saturday of April to the first Saturday of October.
