overview:

Montemaggio, the result of twenty years of renovation, offers guaranteed privacy and tranquility. The gated and fenced extensive garden boasts a small lake, large park with fruit trees, 150 olive trees, a mini amphitheatre, and connects to 80 hectares of forest. Originally a collection of derelict buildings, including the twelfth-century monastery, the property has been transformed into a stunning retreat. Collaborating with architect John Pawson, the owners merged contemporary design with the natural landscape. The restored Convento features original rubble stonework and a reconstructed 9-meter-high stair tower. The interior, designed for modern living, includes two spacious bedrooms with state-of-the-art en suite bathrooms, a modern kitchen opening onto an al fresco dining zone, and a focus on space and light throughout. The Monastero retains its original layout, emphasizing simplicity with a connecting stair on each floor.
