Large Pool & Garden
Amanda is always saying that the best thing about the house is the garden. Our few brick and stone buildings sit in grass, circled by Olives and Cypresses. Planting is simple (as water is always short in the Summer). We have an unusually large (saltwater) pool on the property secluded from the house in a sheltered, scenic spot. Shade at poolside and over the water is provided by red Shade Sails that filter the U.V. light and are wind-proof, as it gets breezy up here. Poggio Al Vento Place in the Wind is the name of the mount the house sits upon and indeed our position has good ventilation all Summer long. The house is surrounded by lawns, find lounge chairs and lunch tables dotted around.
All Summer long guests return home in time for sunset, when the best place to be is in the garden. For new arrivals to the house golden light of late afternoon – the final hour before the sun is gone – is unmissable. Try to get here in time to enjoy it.
