Charming Self-Contained Cottage with Private Balcony

Charming Self Contained Cottage

The romantic self-contained cottage is brick built and is set apart, overlooking a graceful grass bed and the swimming pool. Originally the little house had been a bakers’ oven but now it has been converted into a charming private retreat for a romantic couple or someone wishing to enjoy a retreat.

Writers, painters and artists have all loved the cottage for it’s inspiring and beautiful setting. Quaint and full for character, the bakers cottage is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or Tuscan retreat.
