Fico (Italian for "fig") is a 2 bedroom apartment (sleeping four people) that formed the second half of the converted stable that adjoined our Masseria when it was being used as a working farm. The apartment has access to both the main internal garden (which is surrounded by a 2 - 3m high wall meaning that children can play safely) and our small olive grove to the side, providing guests with the ability to chose whether to follow either the sun or the shade when using the outside space.
The centrepiece of this family apartment is without doubt the large living and dining area. The main living area features a huge corner sofa and coffee tables, allowing the whole family to collapse in comfort and enjoy a quiet game of cards or to just relax in front on the TV (with a separate DVD player - there is a library of DVDs available for your use).
The internal dining area is in the corner of the apartment and has a large glass dining table, with plenty of room for a family meal, and 4 dining chairs. However, with two outside areas there is plenty of choice for alfresco dining.
To the side / rear your terrace features a coffee table and 4 chairs - ideal for breakfast in the sunshine or an early evening (late afternoon!) aperitivo! Meanwhile the patio to the front has a dining table and chairs looking out over the garden.
The kitchen is located to the rear of the main living area, providing a fully open-plan layout. It is equipped with a 4 ring gas hob, electric oven, large fridge / freezer and fitted cupboards. It also has a breakfast bar, with 4 bar stools, under our feature "wine wall" which pays homage to some (but not all!!) of our favourite local wineries.
The master bedroom features a king-sized bed, from where it is possible to lie and admire the view over the olive trees whilst enjoying your morning cup of strong Italian coffee. The double patio doors lead out onto the rear/side terrace overlooking our olive grove of around 30 trees from which we make our own extra virgin olive oil. The bedroom has a large double wardrobe and two bedside tables for storage, as well as a pair of stylish reading lights - ideal for finishing the final chapter of your book without disturbing your partner!
The second bedroom has two single beds, a large chest of drawers and a bedside table.
Both bedrooms are equipped with remote controlled air conditioning units (providing either cold or warm air).
The apartment has a shared, family bathroom that features a distinctive, tiled walk-in shower / wet room area, wash-hand basin, toilet and bidet. It also has a (seasonally heated) towel rail.
The apartment has underfloor heating throughout for the cooler months.
Wifi access is available in the apartment and on the patio and also extends across the entire garden and pool area.
