There are places that enter your heart and to which we feel we belong from the very first moment. When I entered this house with the owners, Paolo and Cristina, we did it on tiptoe, paying attention to where we placed our feet so as not to end up on the floor below, beyond the dilapidated attic. Yet it was love at first sight. A stone building in the heart of the historic center of Abbadia San Salvatore: la Castellina, a rare example of medieval building that has remained almost untouched. It has a double panoramic view: one over the valley, towards the Radicofani tower in the background, the other on glimpses of the historic center from other windows. There is a suggestive cellar carved into the rock and from here, opening an ancient door, there is a garden, where a particular tree acts as a lookout. This description made Paolo and Cristina buy immediately this house and make it their home. During construction, the project changed into the idea of using it as an accommodation facility while remaining the possibility, with small interventions, of using it as a home. A job that lasted about three years, which saw the renovation of the structure - lightened roof and floors - of the finishes, the furnishings and in 2022 the start of the activity. On the four floors of the building, called “B&B La Castellina”, two suites have been created for high-end tourism, as well as a common living room, a breakfast room, a wellness area and two fantastic outdoor spaces. The result is a contemporary structure built without treading on history, welcoming, sophisticated and at the same time relaxing environments thanks to the right combination of resins, wood, stone, wallpaper and the use of expertly mixed light to build captivating luminous scenarios. The living room on the ground floor is the right business card of the structure, from here you go to the breakfast room with a built-in kitchen corner covered in micro-cement and then you go out onto the large terrace, suspended between heaven and earth. The style of the rooms has a common design matrix, in which antique and modern objects blend perfectly. They stand out on minimalist finishes and take on a romantic character thanks to the designer wallpaper. In each room, a space dedicated to the free-standing designer bathtub. In the bathrooms, the same contemporary finishes: micro-cement floors, resin finishes and large sensory shower compartments. Going down to the basement, the epilogue of the entire design process is the area dedicated to the bio-sauna with access to the garden with Zen references. Equal care and attention has been dedicated to the engineering: a valid home automation system allows you to remotely manage lights, openings, heating and piped music. There are two boilers fueled by methane to always guarantee the thermo-sanitary system. There is a convenient parking in an area below the house. The established and profitable business has a loyal clientele as in places like this return is a promise that is renewed from time to time. Reviews and feedback are a valid proof.
