The positioning of La Pietra and its front door and its terraces allows almost total privacy, though the driveway and entrance into the garden is shared between these two properties. Some fifteen metres to the side of La Pietra lies Casa Carina ( see listing) a delightful small romantic hideaway which sleeps two people that can be rented independently or together with La Pietra.
Please note re Driveway: Please note also that the approach to La Pietra is by way of an unpaved driveway, approx. 2 km, it is steep in parts but does not present a problem if driven slowly; It is regularly maintained and can take passenger vehicles of all sizes; Once you have done it a few times you may wonder why you gave it a 2nd thought.
Lovely views of the surrounding countryside.
