Situated in the medieval hamlet of Patrignone, Il Riposo is an elegant three-story town-house, epitomising everything you would imagine an Italian home to be. Blending into the very fabric of this beautiful hamlet, Il Riposo is aptly named, ‘the Retreat’, taking on the wonderful personality of this quiet, historic artists’ colony that dates from the 12th Century

WALK THROUGH IL RIPOSO – A 360 VIRTUAL TOUR OF

The light and tranquillity of this special borgo must have been a tremendous inspiration to the many artists, writers, poets and historians who based themselves here for over 200 years; in particular, the Bonfini family who are continually referred to in the streets and alleys of the hamlet.

This historic property dates back to the 12th century and has been carefully and lovingly restored by the Appassionata team of builders and artisans. Facing east towards the Adriatic Sea the beautiful early morning sun washes over the terraced garden throughout the day.The four double bedrooms and three bathrooms provide plenty of space to accommodate family and friends.

The 210 mq (2260sq ft) house is laid out over three floors with a discreet entrance at the 1st floor through a quiet, historic brick archway. The beautiful and surprisingly large entrance hall leads into a spacious, open plan dining room and kitchen with a balcony and steps into the walled garden. There are breath-taking views from the kitchen, overlooking the garden and swimming pool to the open countryside beyond. Steps down to the elegant lounge draw you into a peaceful haven ideal for quiet reading in front of the fire, watching the Sky TV, or an ideal space for entertaining family and friends.

Owners might be able to afford a holiday home outright but don’t see the point if they’re only going to use it for a limited number of weeks each year. They like the fact that the property is managed and used all year round and they don’t have to worry about it when they’re not there. The Times

There is a surprisingly large, beautiful walled garden with open views to the rolling hills and medieval villages beyond. The swimming pool is on the lower level, ideal space for sunbathing and relaxing throughout the day. The upper level has outstanding views, where the dining table is an ideal place to host meals with your loved ones, or to relax with a coffee and just enjoy the peace and tranquillity.

The main marble staircase leads you gently up to the main floor of bedrooms. Three of the four bedrooms are situated on this floor, two with king size beds and one with matching, elegant antique single beds. The two bathrooms are spacious and luxurious. The en-suite bathroom boasts a free-standing roll top bath, large walk in shower with a hand-painted, marble topped double sink unit.

There is a fourth double bedroom, and a third bathroom down the sweeping staircase to the ground floor. This spacious bedroom is situated on a private floor, ideal as either a master bedroom or guest suite. The remnants of old brick vaults combine beautifully with the antique king size bed and in-room roll top bath, creating a very romantic setting.
