Central Italy wouldn’t be Central Italy without its hilltop villages. You know the ones, the small Medieval hamlets perched precariously on verdant green hills, accessed by winding roads steeped in history and unforgettable beauty. These towns are the essence of Italy itself, places that have remained unchanged for centuries. So much so that to visit one is to understand something of the nature of life in Italy itself.
Where do I start? The answer to this question is right here. Your journey will begin in Pendenza, Italy. An incredible Medieval town just an hour from Rome that dates back to the fall of the Roman Empire. The villa that will be won in this contest dates back almost 600 years, and is over 3300sf. It boasts 4 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a brand new kitchen that is 350sf. This chef’s dream will be yours stocked and ready with all the the tools needed to to create amazing meals. The kitchen features, built in hidden appliances, stainless (on the inside) dishwasher, massive pizza oven, microwave, large oven, additional thermo stove, and huge multi level island. The patio door off the kitchen fully opens to blur the lines between your indoor and outdoor entertainment space.
The outdoor entertainment spaces in this home are many, and the villa grounds are vast. Start with your morning with an espresso on the large patio off the formal living. Take a sip, breath, relax, and then take in all of the wonderful sights and sounds of nature from your home. On the surrounding hills you will see the the sheep herder and his sheep. Faintly in the background, you will hear the water from the fountain attached to rear of your estate. After your espresso, why not read a book on the balcony or start your own orchard on the upper grounds of the estate?
Now lets talk about aperitivo hour. Generally starting around 5:00pm, the aperitivo hour is an evening ritual that’s part of everyday life here in Italy. Why not have some friends over and enjoy a beverage and some conversation. Did I mention you also win a 30 seat, fully stocked breathtakingly restored private bar with this home?
