Terre Gialle Residence & Resort, Tuscany, Italy

Terre Gialle Residence & Resort is a picturesque estate covering almost 20 acres across some of the most pristine countryside Tuscany has to offer, encompassing both a natural lake and an array of beautiful gardens. Situated on the slopes of Mount Amiata, the Italian property is surrounded by evergreen forests and vast fields of olives and vines. Still largely undiscovered, the ancient town of Castel del Piano is only a five minute drive away or a ten minute walk, offering cobbled streets, wondrous architecture, local cuisine and friendly residents.

The historic building dominating Terre Gialle Residence has origins dating back to the 18th century. These one-of-a-kind residences have stood for more than two centuries, and after a resplendent restoration their wood-beamed or vaulted terra-cotta ceilings, stone walls and handmade furniture still reflect the character of the building. The Terre Gialle Residence is comprised of studio, 1 and 2 bedroom apartments on a full ownership basis, with prices ranging from €93,500 to €176,000.

Terre Gialle Resort offers a range of modern 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and 3 bedroom villas available on a fractional ownership basis. Each property is divided into a maximum of 12 fractions, with owners receiving four weeks usage a year, according to a rotating calendar system. Fractional ownership at Terre Gialle Resort starts from €28,000 (excluding maintenance costs).

Terre Gialle Residence & Resort exudes a unique elegant atmosphere with high quality services, a swimming pool with whirlpool, a well-kept park with nature trails and sports facilities, a tennis court and bowling green.

Casa Tre Archi, Petritoli, Le Marche, Italy

Casa Tre Archi is a townhouse in the centre of the delightful medieval town of Petritoli in Italy’s Le Marche region.

Petritoli is known for its ancient town walls, which feature three beautiful entrance arches, and Casa Tre Archi is in fact attached to the ancient entrance turrets – with the turret wall actually part of the lounge!

The 210 sq. m townhouse has three bedrooms and, unusually for an urban Italian property of this nature, enjoys outdoor space on three levels. This includes a small rear garden off the kitchen, a terrace off one of the bedrooms and a spectacular 50 sq. m roof terrace with views of Petritoli and the surrounding countryside.

Casa Tre Archi includes a delightfully quirky kitchen, with deep red and grey hand-painted cupboards and a selection of coloured tiles, in keeping with the traditional colours of the region. Glazed doors lead out to a private, wooden decked area.

The house benefits from three bathrooms: one en suite off the master bedroom, one family bathroom upstairs and a small bathroom off the living area on the ground floor.

During the restoration work, the house was painted throughout with organic paint, new stone and travatine floors were laid, and stairways and doors were either refreshed or replaced.

Casa Tre Archi enjoys sea views, beamed ceilings and traditional, terracotta tiled floors and it also benefits from nearby parking. The townhouse provides the best of town living for those who want to meander from their home to a choice of shops, restaurants and cafes.

Miles of sandy beaches are within a short drive of the town and a world championship winning pizza restaurant is just 10 minutes’ drive from the property.

The property is offered as part of a fractional ownership scheme and shares of 1/10th of the property offering five weeks’ exclusive use annually, are available from £70,000.
