Casa Olivi is much more than a holiday house or even a "home away from home". This gorgeous property has been turned into a real lifestyle concept and it is no wonder that the villa has been featured in many magazines such as Elle, Madame Figaro, Maison Française or Food & Wine.
Imagine... Under a traditional farmhouse exterior awaits an enchanting place. Beams and stones are still in place but the shadows have been chased away. A pleasant light, further enhanced by the white and earth colour scheme, now prevails. The well-known Swiss architects Markus Wespi and Jérôme de Meuron have been careful to retain the quintessential character of the house when altering the building to welcome it into modern life.
Every last detail has been considered to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. After your welcome ice cream on arrival day, you will find inside bespoke furniture from a local artisan, a high-tech ArcLinea kitchen with Gaggenau appliances, a cosy fireplace, a gym and fabulous bathrooms. As for the outside, inviting design furniture encircles the spectacular infinity pool, the large garden of 12.000 m2, and an al fresco cooking area, including a Japanese grill, promises long evenings with delicious food, wine and laughter.
The maintenance of the house, the pool (heated by ground heat collectors, adding approx. 3-4°C) and its outside space are of course included, as well as WIFI and Bang & Olufsen TV-Hifi system. You might however decide that a stay at Casa Olivi is the perfect opportunity to completely switch off. So sit back, gaze at the stunning sceneries of Le Marche countryside and relax...
