Villa Angelo is part of a group of early 18th Century stone houses in the scenic medieval village of Motovun. Dating back to Roman civilisation and originally the town's customs house, this sunny property is South-facing with a large terrace overlooking the valley below. During the rental season it has exclusive use of the garden and its stunning infinity pool, both with total privacy.
The property has been lovingly restored and improved over three decades using the finest local and Italian materials. Whether with Istrian limestone floors equipped with under floor heating, cupboards built with reclaimed timber, or the handmade tin-lined copper bath, each space has been created with imagination.
Arranged over 3 floors and 250 square metres, the building has three generous bedrooms each with both Air Conditioning and a new Hypnos super king bed. The attic bedroom also has two single beds, ideally for children. The master bathroom has a spectacular bateau bath and a newly installed walk-in shower. There is also a second shower room lined in limestone, a large living room with three French windows giving on to a full length loggia and terrace. Wireless Internet is also available throughout the property.
The infinity pool, steam room and garden are for the exclusive use of Villa Angelo during the rental season and are accessed by a separate entrance from the main street, as it sits 2 storeys below the house. This entrance is approximately 20 metres from the front door of Villa Angelo.
Children are welcome and house-trained pets may be accommodated with prior approval.
Free parking is approximately 100 metres from the front door and the town square is a five-minute walk from the house.
This room comes with two Italian designer sofas - framing an open fireplace. A 55inch full HD Smart TV is available for guests to enjoy. The network connection comes ready with a Netflix account. Simply pick a movie and watch!
Running the length of the house, the terrace is perfect for entertaining with a sun-bed and an outdoor shower for those hot summer months. Four sets of French windows open onto the terrace with its spectacular panorama of the valley. A dining table sits beneath a wooden-beamed loggia and the other half is open to the skies. During the day guests can enjoy the sun, and at night the beautiful constellations.
The kitchen has an Italian professional two-oven ILVE cooker, a Smeg fridge/freezer, and a Miele dishwasher. There is also a 7-kilo Miele washing machine and another 7-kilo Miele tumble dryer. All the Miele appliances are concealed behind reclaimed timber doors. The well-equipped kitchen includes coffee machines for both espresso (Bialetti) and American style coffee, a milk frother, a microwave, a Dualit toaster, and a good range of cooking equipment.

SHOWER-ROOM - 1ST FLOOR
A limestone-lined shower-room with a matching basin and second toilet is situated at the top of the stairs to the 1st Floor.
A stunning 14-metre heated infinity pool allows magical and uninterrupted views of the verdant Motovun valley. A four-poster sun-bed is situated on the pool's terrace with an adjacent concealed fridge for drinks in shatterproof glasses. At night the pool and surrounding garden can be illuminated.
Lying beneath the infinity pool is a sophisticated garden. Comprising a mixture of herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses and scented herbs, the garden is another oasis for guests (and butterflies!) to enjoy during their stay. Depending on the time of year, the calming colour palette is made up of blue-violets, apricot orange and brilliant whites. Guests can enjoy the flora via a garden pathway, which can be illuminated at night. There's also another sun-bed - ideal for secluded reading while enjoying the mountain air and view. Behind the sun-bed is an outdoor shower and rustic limestone sink.
TURKISH HAMMAM / STEAM ROOM
Situated through a doorway at the end of the garden and near the sun-bed, guests can enjoy the EFFEGIBI steam room, lined in grey Italian porcelain tiles and fitted with a waterfall shower and Kneipp hose.
