The House of the Anchient Roses was named after the collection of ancient, English roses that the owners Riccardo and Stefania have chosen for the parkland surrounding their villa. The park, scattered with forest trees, confers to the estate a deep sense of privacy.
The villa, furnished in a fashionable style design, welcomes its guests within its ease at once. Walls are painted bright colours, emphasyzing modern style features in the house. Stefania, who is a professional painter, either has frescoed some of the rooms' walls or hung some wide pictures painted by her.
