For sale: apartments boutique resort in Italy

Soon weel start the build of an earth-sheltered boutique resort in one of Italy’s most beautiful areas.

The resort is a cooperation with Le Ville di Trevinano and a few villas are for sale!


Earth-sheltered build

The boutique resort is located on the western- and eastern-slope of a hill, overlooking the stunning Tuscan region and the Monte Rufeno. It consists of ten buildings: a private villa, eight boutique resort villas and a reception building. All villas are located in this hill, underground. Underground building has not only energetic but also aesthetic benefits; the resort is hardly noticeable from the overlying hills. The reception building is the only exception as it is an above ground structure on the hill. The Cor-Ten steel encasement of the building blends perfectly with the environment.


Panoramic view

The modern villas each have a shallow volume allowing an unobstructed panoramic view. Due to the shallow volume there is no need to dig deep into the hill leaving plenty of room for natural light in the homes, even in the back. The interior has a clean design and an internal height difference makes for an even better panorama experience throughout the house.


Height differences

The private terraces with wading pools are all slightly lower than the villas themselves. As a result, the terraces enjoy maximum sunshine and the view from inside looks over the terraces to the spectacular Tuscan hills.


Local raw materials

The materials of the resort’s exterior is restrained and all raw materials, with the exception of the Cor-Ten steel, are locally obtained. The interiors are understated and full of warm tones, concrete and wood. The kitchens and cabinets are an integral part of the interior.


Villas for sale

A small number of boutique villas are for sale. The developer of the resort offers its buyers a full service package of maintenance and rental mangement during the periods that the owners are not visiting their Italian home.
