A nineteenth-century villa, which had been previously downgraded, regains its initial character with a careful restoration, transforming it into a small country hotel with restaurant. An attempt was made to optimize space, carefully inserting every necessary item to be found in a four-star hotel, without however perceiving the change. We also created a new floor level, with a core-room and a new staircase connecting all the rooms internally. A covered terrace, overlooking the garden, is used for breakfast. It's simple but finished with boxwood panels, that we strongly wanted to keep, as well as the wooden balustrade that looks towards the valley of the river Greve. The restaurant, the bar, the kitchen and the rooms on the second floor were designed and chosen by our studio, while the rooms and the living room on the first floor are the result of a collaboration with BARTHEL.
