Overview

Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Walk to Village

Villa Effie, nestled in one of Italy’s most remote and unspoilt regions, comprises mountain chalet influences, abundant rustic charm, as well as contemporary comforts within secluded tranquillity.

Surrounded by a fragrant vineyard as well as resplendent, expansive lawns, framed with fruit trees and blossoming plants, this home offers a rural idyll away from the bustle of the crowds.

The interiors at Villa Effie represent old-school rustic charm, finished with preserved original touches such as exposed timber beams and open fireplaces, along with modern touches such as sleek kitchen fittings and satellite television.

The open plan living-dining space offers a warm and welcoming, informal family environment, adorned with ornate accessories, ambient lighting, oil paintings and sedate, antique furnishings. This home is brimming with characterful taste and local influences.

The well-equipped modern kitchen provides informal eat-in dining, abundant natural daylights and access to the sumptuous lawns; guests will enjoy al fresco dining in style in a fragrant setting or a mouthwatering barbecue whilst enjoying local wines.

The courtyard provides a taste of authentic, small-town Italy, offset by the villa’s distinctive white-washed facade and distinctive pillar box red shutters.

Villa Effie provides a majestic home-from-home environment, with opulent touches such as chandelier lighting, antique wooden dresser and lavish oil paintings, this home offers a perfect blend of luxury and simplicity.

Ten guests can be accommodated across four twin bedrooms, and one double bedroom; these comfortable abodes are finished with quality cotton linen and beautifully understated style, while touches of old school glamour abound - gilded Art Deco bathroom accessories, vivid greens, elegant lighting.

The lawns are immaculately maintained and seem to carry on forever, offering dappled shade as well as resplendent sun lounging potential. Villa Effie is a charmingly preserved original home, offering charismatic style and vivacious touches within the spirit of original small-town northern Italian life.

Nestled in a secluded and unspoilt corner of North East Italy, outside the rural hamlet of Mereto di Capitoli, Villa Effie is set within one of Italy’s most remote, rugged and varied rural areas. The Friuli countryside stretches from the mountainous borders with Slovenia and Austria, where there is ample opportunity for indulging in winter sports, dotted with well-heeled ski resorts, to the sandy beaches of the Adriatic coast.

Offering varied landscapes, comprising the impressive Carso plateau formed by windswept rocks, to medieval hill towns and historical monuments, visitors will delight at all this region has to offer.

The ancient town of Aquileia is a glimmering jewel in the region: one of the most important towns of the Roman Empire, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as home to early examples of Christian art.

The Dolomites, another addition to the UNESCO World Heritage List, are an unmissable natural site, offering stunning natural beauty: crystal-clear water stretches, snow-covered peaks and lush valleys.

The vibrant, cosmopolitan town of Gorizia, is worth a visit, with its Medieval castle and myriad of winding alleyways. Udine is no less charming, with its ancient castle and the precious works of Giambattista Tiepolo.

Several other towns and small villages enrich the region with their art and traditions. Grado is peculiar for its Venetian-style old town centre; the small town of San Daniele, for its beautiful frescoes and the Church of Sant’Antonio.

Whether it be history, art, winter sports or gastronomy, this region is rich with opportunity for visitors of all ages.

Aquileia is another must-do, both for adults and children.
