La Casetta or, the Little House

La Casetta is 100 sqm/1075 sqf and sleeps 4.  It was intended to be il Poggiolo’s Master’s House but, as it often happens in Italy, death divided the property and so, it was never completed.

The Entrance to the two story house is under the tall arch of il Poggiolo’s ramp from Codiponte’s Medieval bridge. You enter the main room which serves also as the Dining Room. Off it and on the left is the Kitchen complete with a large refrigerator/freezer, oven and 4 burner cook-top, dishwasher and plenty of storage, etc. The door to the right in the main room leads to the Guest Bedroom with two single beds. The stairs leads up to the large Salotto with an enclosed fireplace. The Master Bedroom with a comfortable double-bed and La Casetta’s single Bathroom are reached after passing through an open passage off the Living Room.

The decor is an eclectic mix of period antiques, flea-market finds and contemporary art and furnishings contrasted with the sage paint-colour of the walls throughout. Il Poggiolo’s Garden is for use by our guests and to reach it, go out the front door past the grey painted gate, take the first left through the cantine and out a double-door to a 2,000 sqm/25,000 sqf garden of grassy terraces planted with flowering bushes, fruit and olive trees. There’s even a Fish Pond! Chaises, chairs, tables and blankets are available. One last word: La Casetta has central heating which makes it an ideal spot to pass a warm Christmas or New year’s holiday!
