Set amongst hundreds of ancient olive trees and grape vines, The Pinelli Estate - or Tenuta Pinelli as it's known locally - stretches across over 18 acres of rolling hills. Amalfi lemon trees line the driveway, whilst pomegranate and almond trees scatter the lush landscape. Nestled right at the heart of this scene is the classic holiday property: IL RIFUGIO (The Retreat).
As you’d expect from a property dating back almost 300 years, this was a traditional local farm building for over ten generations of Italian owners. Following a painstaking and full refurbishment, it has been transformed to create the ultimate in stylish holiday living. Every tiny detail has been lovingly restored to accentuate all the original character but also deliver a lifestyle experience that’s second to none. From the décor, lighting and fixtures to the furnishings, infinity pools and technology, no expense has been spared.
Local stone, aged birch wooden beams, shuttered windows and terracotta roof tiles reinforce the classic Italian architecture. A blend of cool tiled and natural wood floors feature luxuriant woven rugs, whilst all the internal doors have either been carefully restored or locally sourced to complement the southern Italian vibe.
IL RIFUGIO is a four en-suite bedroomed villa featuring a cool lounge, hall, state of the art kitchen and decadent dining room. Step outside to over 150m2 of immaculate private terracing and the infinity pool.
The team at The Pinelli Estate have conceived an unrivalled luxury holiday retreat. Compromise is not in their vocabulary. And this applies as much to the customer service and concierge treatment as to the buildings themselves.
