The Ayrlington

Built of golden Bath stone in 1874 by the architect J Elkinton Gill, the award winning Ayrlington is a handsome listed Victorian house with exceptional views of the City and its medieval Abbey.
Bath’s magnificent historic sites, speciality shops and excellent restaurants are all just a 5-10 minute level stroll away.

The Ayrlington was the proud recipient of a Silver-Gilt certificate at the 2014 Bath In Bloom awards.

The elegant and tranquil interior is a graceful blend of English and Italian, artwork, fine fabrics and Egyptian cotton bedlinen – all nineteen bedrooms have individual themes and are beautifully furnished, some with four poster beds.

We also offer a residents’ bar, secure private parking and is entirely non smoking. We do not accept children under 5 years of age.

Cloister of the Capuchin Monastery

The Convent Capuchin Franciscan, founded in the thirteen century by Guido da Cortona, a close disciple of San Francisco D’Assisi, is immersed in an ancient woodland and has been restored to the place, the building and its atmosphere. Today’s complex, work on a restoration that more than half a century and which still stands, consists of a main building on three floors which includes parts most important monuments: the old refectory and the cloister frescoes of the eighteenth century with the central well and the lancet windows of an ancient crypt. From the same structure, only one time, were divided into two small outbuildings with separate entrance.

Located in the town of Montalcino, a few kilometers from the town famous for its wines, is located in a quiet location in the heart of the “Brunello” and close to centers of great cultural interest and scenic.
Siena, Florence and Perugia are within walking distance. Resorts are within easy reach such as Pienza, Montepulciano, the springs of Bagno Vignoni and San Filippo, the seaside resorts of the nearby Maremma, the mountainous area of Mount Amiata and the thermal station in Chianciano.

Monte la Guardia

Monte la Guardia is a farmhouse in the woods, to be exact in two hundred hectares of forest, and is family-run. You will find us here because we live in, but you might not find at times, perhaps because we are doing the spending, or why we went to look for a horse that has moved away, or perhaps more simply because we can carve out a little ‘space to rest. Call us so before you arrive, however we would like to welcome you as it should.

In this premise we would like to clarify some things, sometimes underlined by our own guests. Monte la Guardia is not a resort, it is not a tourist village, it’s not a five star hotel. It is a farm built by a farm that takes care of cutting and maintaining the forest other than raising of various animals. Often you will find us to welcome you in work clothes, because our work is the first farm Farm. The access road to the farmhouse from Castel Giuliano country is a country road, dirt road, sometimes in poor condition (something which we very dispiaciamo). I bring you here because we understand that not all are practical for driving in the country or are willing to travel poor roads. Unfortunately the maintenance of the highway does not depend on us, and about we have no decision-making power. The pool is a simple, rustic ground pool, great fun for the kids but not very appreciated by those who pursues the idea of ​​an infinity pool in the middle of a perfect lawn. Have patience gentlemen, we are in the countryside, surrounded by trees, you’ll have to endure a few insects in the water, or seek some “cottage” built around the pool!
