Casa Alessandro is a two-story property, exudes comfortable charm that combines elegance and ease, a gem of a Tuscan farmhouse set on a stunning estate of hill-terraced olive groves and overlooking a small lake with its own little tree-shaded island reached by a wooden bridge. It is a special home of great comfort and elegance with 6 luxuriously appointed guests rooms each with magnificent en-suite bath/shower rooms for up to 12 guests.
The luxuriously appointed rooms blend the love for local traditional architecture with an understanding of the needs of today’s travellers. On sunny days the rooms are filled with glowing sunshine and at night the space becomes very intimate. Special attention was given to the décor using large mirrors, antiqued prints, exquisite fabrics, and local antiques.
The ground floor is spacious and sunny offering salon with comfortable sofas, a guest study, a grand domed dining room and Tuscan kitchen.
The jasmine covered gazebo surrounded by lawn gardens sets the perfect backdrop to the flood-lit swimming pool.
Casa Alessandro is a blissful retreat to discover and enjoy the magical beauty of la dolce vita.
Casa Alessandro holds a wealth of history, tradition and culture within its walls as it was once home to Felice Matteucci (1808 - 1887) who, in the summer of 1854, invented the first stroke engine (prototype to the modern day motor car) in his on-site workshop. Whilst his father was nominated counselor to the High Court of Justice of Leopold II, Felice spent much of his time looking after the two country homes that the family owned at the beginning of the 18th century one of which was Villa Controni/Casa Felice Matteucci where he continued his scientific researches
