Secluded Luxury Home in Queenstown, New Zealand. Petrella Guidi Historical Hideaway in Italy - 1 Kind Design 1 Kind Design. Jul Bouquets of flowers and aromatic plants intoxicate upon arriving to Petrella Guidi Historical Hideaway , in the ancient medieval village of Petrella Guidi, Italy. Entering the gate, one leaves behind the pace of chaotic lives, and abandons itself to the joy of living of this ancient land.

It is meant to be understood as a site of experience, where nature, culture, history and pleasure are elevated to the center of things in order to finally rediscover it in oneself. Each of the three houses presents itself as an unexpected world in its own right, closed in on itself and yet a harmonious part of the whole, waiting to be enlivened by lively laughter, animated conversation and playfulness.

In the middle lies a spacious hall and in relation to this, a new bathroom. The overall floor plan with massive windows on three sides and the bright color scheme fills the apartment with light. It’s hard to decide which of these rooms we like best. Usually, when we present apartments on Freshome, we like to start with the living-room.
