Aurelie is a light and airy home from home, offering comfort, space and pleasant surroundings and comprises two separate living areas, including kitchen/dining, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, large laundry-room and terrace. The house is well-situated, just steps away from the tree-lined market square and local shops. A few minutes' walk and you are following a path through the vines to a favourite cool swimming spot in the river Vernazobre or continuing on over a semi-hidden footbridge through a typical little hamlet and back home.

At ground floor level, the hallway leads from the front door to a spacious, bright laundry room (equipped with washing machine, iron and ironing board and offering a large amount of storage space) on the left and, on the right, stairs to the first floor, the heart of the house, (2nd floor to North Americans). This floor comprises sitting room, large open-plan kitchen/dining/family room, shower room, terrace and the first of three bedrooms.

The sunny sitting room has been attractively furnished with a sofa and comfortable chairs and retains its original floor tiles and fireplace with wood-burning stove. Two large windows provide plenty of light. CD/cassette player, flat screen TV (Sky Free view satellite channels), DVD player, books, games and telephone are provided (outgoing telephone calls require a prepaid telephone card easily obtained locally). ADSL/Broadband internet access is available via WiFi.

From the sitting room, to the right of the fireplace, three steps lead immediately into the converted upper floor of the old stable that adjoins the house to the rear. Straight ahead is the large kitchen/dining/family room and terrace; a new bathroom is on the right of the entryway and a double bedroom is to the left.
