The guests can relax on the white leather Chesterfield sofas that surround the Alps-green marble fireplace, they can enjoy one of the many liquors that are contained inside an elegant black leather vintage cocktail cabinet, they can engage in a chess game over the old card table, or maybe lay down to watch some TV on the adjacent living room. The hall is embellished with an old Austrian grand piano, completely renovated and functioning.
From the hall it is possible to enter, through a corridor, in a kitchen made of stainless steel equipped with professional tools, and also with a wide window overlooking the park. Proceeding through the corridor we reach an elegant ante-room and then a small bathroom with shower. Finally we can find the relax room, with TV and sofa, that, if necessary, becomes the sixth bedroom with sofa double bed.
