On the outskirts of Macerata town, this property centres on a seven-bedroom villa. Casa Perugini was once the home of a major landowner at the centre of the local agricultural economy and still has an underground wine cellar reached by brick stairs. Traditional features permeate the house from the vaulted ceilings on the ground floor to the exposed wooden beams and terracotta tiles on the upper floor. At the moment the villa is divided into two apartments, that both open onto terraces. There are various outbuildings, constructed in different eras. The sea is 20 minutes away.
Right in the heart of the city in District I, on the historical Buda side, with buildings dating to the 13th century, this two-bedroom apartment has amazing river and city views. Each bedroom opens to a balcony and the living/dining room opens onto a terrace. The apartment scheme has a 40sq m roof terrace.
In the strip of land at the bottom of the country, on the Gulf of Thailand, this three-bedroom villa is 70mk south of Hua Hin town. Bang on the beach in Kui Buri, which has a national park, the villa has a sleek, modernist aesthetic inside and out. The 200sq m house has floor-to-ceiling glazing in the living room that overlooks the beach.
