Villa Angelo is part of a group of early 18th Century stone houses in the scenic medieval village of Motovun. Dating back to Roman civilisation and originally the town's customs house, this sunny property is South-facing with a large terrace overlooking the surrounding valley. During the rental season it has exclusive use of the garden and stunning infinity pool below.
The property has been lovingly restored using the best of local and modern materials. Whether in the Istrian limestone floors equipped with under floor heating, cupboards built with reclaimed timber, or the handmade, tin-lined copper bath, each space has been carefully considered and artfully realised.
Arranged over 3 floors across 250 square metres, the house accommodates 8 adults comfortably with 3 generous bedrooms (3 superking beds and 2 single beds - all with AC), a master bathroom, shower room, large living room, eat-in kitchen and terrace. Decorated with a playful balance of modern and antique furnishings, the house is finished with the very best appliances for added comfort and convenience. Wireless Internet is also available throughout the property.
The infinity pool, steam room and garden are accessed by a separate entrance from the main street, as it sits 2 storeys below the house. This entrance is approximately 20 metres from the front door of Villa Angelo.
Children are welcome and pets may be accommodated with approval from the owners.
Parking is free and the town square is a five-minute walk from the house.
This charming room comes with two large comfortable sofas and a cosy antique arm chair - all framing an open fireplace . A 55inch full HD Smart TV is available for guests to enjoy. It comes ready with a NETFLIX account. Simply pick a movie and watch!
Running the length of the house, the terrace is perfect for entertaining with an al fresco dining table, sun-bed and outdoor shower for those hot summer months. Three sets of French doors open onto the terrace which takes in tranquil views of the valley. A dining table sits beneath a wooden-beamed cover and the other half of the terrace is open to the skies. During the day guests can take in the sun and at night numerous and beautiful constellations.
The kitchen has a top-end Italian range cooker, stylish Smeg fridge/freezer, Miele washer/dryer and dishwasher. A large selection of crockery on hand for all meals.
