Petrea, whose name comes from Greek mythology and means “source of the rocks”, is in the oldest part of the hermitage and is ideal for a family or group of friends. The apartment can be accessed from the gate beside the church of San Francesco, through a large shared courtyard embellished by beautiful old palm trees, and also from the upper garden, with its terraces and various viewpoints, where there is an entrance from the street.
It consists of:
For total relaxation, Petrea also has a private sun terrace, accessed via the entrance staircase, which overlooks the beautiful Bay of San Francesco and is furnished with sun loungers and a mini spa. Finally, the guests in the apartment can enjoy a large garden with old trees, scenic terraces and a courtyard, shared with the other apartments in the building. Petrea is therefore a large apartment, with a floor area of about 250 m2, plus external spaces, just waiting to be discovered. It sleeps six persons, has four bathrooms and is ideal for your holiday with relatives or friends, or for hosting events. The renovation work on the apartment just described was completed in the spring of 2015, with the help of interior designer Giuliano Andrea Dell’Uva, and features some “particular” choices regarding the use of the living space, as the owner had no desire to further modify the original structure of the house, even with regard to its new use as guest accommodation. For the work, wide use was made of modern materials such as resin, designer lighting and special paints, together with traditional materials such as simple hand forged wrought iron and common glass. The final results of the renovation have been photographed and published in some international furnishing magazines.
