Ballatina: 1 bedroom apartment

Ballatina is a one bedroom independent apartment on the ground-floor of Villa Ballati, an 18th century villa located on the grounds of the Castello di Grotti. It can be rented as a separate apartment or together with the Villa. The apartment has been completely restored, and is comprised of:

  • entry way
  • small fully equipped kitchen
  • large master-bedroom with fireplace
  • antique furnishings
