San Martino agli Ulivi is the result of an accurate renovation of the family estate, aiming to reconcile the preservation of the original structure and the innovative techniques for sustainable constructions intended to protect the environment.
Set in beautiful hilly position, the farmhouse is named after the 800 olive trees that surround the property and from which the owners obtain great olive oil. San Martino agli Ulivi is the result of a long and accurate renovation of the family estate. On one of the stones of the old barn you can see a date inscribed: 1895; however the original core of the house - which without foundations lays on the flank of the hill - dates back to the 1600.
The renovation aimed to conciliate the preservation of the original structure with the innovative techniques for sustainable constructions to protect the environment and to reduce energy consumption. Therefore, matching to the typical cotto floors, in-sight beams ceilings and bricks, you will find the photovoltaic system and solar panels, thermal and soundproof cladding for the inner walls, certified window and door fixtures.

In order to enjoy their relaxing moments and to eat in the open air, guests have on their disposal two nice gazebos in wrought iron, one located in front of the house and the other one made next to the pool.
