This stunning property is surrounded by over 13 ha of panoramic land, great for cultivating or simply as a garden – you could also build a swimming pool here!
Both farmhouses benefit from plenty of outdoor space thanks to their several stone porches and the two outdoor wood ovens. This makes it perfect for kids or pets, as they can enjoy the freedom of roaming the surrounding land undisturbed, and it also grants you utter privacy.
