We are selling our beautiful country house "La Carpineta" (built around 1850), which is surrounded by approx. 1000 olive trees and forests, with a unique view of the Mediterranean Sea and the island of Giglio.
We purchased the house in 1994 and completely renovated it several times. In 2012 it was extended and brought up to the latest technical standards(photo voltaic, solar heating, floor heating, triple pane windows, satellite TV, internet, insulated roof, etc.), so that one can live here permanently and comfortably. The house offers ample room for two families or 12 persons.
The estate has a separate apartment with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, a kitchen and a small terrace. We mainly use this for our guests and family. However, it could also be rented as a detached unit.
The main living area is upstairs on the first floor, as seen on the floor plan. The house has three terraces and one balcony plus as a pool terrace perfect for sundowners.
The premises are technically state of the art (floor heating, high efficiency heating systems with solar panels, photo voltaic plant). Carpineta is electrically neutral.
La Carpineta is a paradise for nature lovers with an intact Mediterranean nature. We have counted 76 bird species and there are many rare plants.
