Dipped in the green umbrian hills, the swimming pool of the Bed & Breakfast Villa Gaia is characterized for the privileged position, the external travertine paving and marble from Carrara and one singular sculpture, inspired to the Renaissance Fontanas.
The luxurious Bed & Breakfast Villa Gaia is On the greens hills umbre, between the archaeological zone of Carsulae and the city of Terni. It is well-known for the elegance of the spaces and the hospitality of the owners.
The property is surrounded by a blooming garden, by coloured and different varieties of bushes and trees. In this scenario, close to the residence, we find the volume of the swimming pool, sunned for all the day. The architecture of the swimming pool is constituted by a planned terrace structure, from where is possible to admire an incredible landscape.
On the mount side, the swimming pool rests on the land, while on the valley side, it is stabilized on a series of bearing columns. All these columns are ordered in an evocative sequence of arches, just under the railing that has also a protection function of the terrace.
The lovely terrace, besides following the paving indentation, serves as parapet and as decorative motive, enriched by small colluumns with vases.
The wide swimming pool has a regular shape, and has a dimension of 15x8 meters, with different depths that go from 1 meter to 3,5 meters. In the lower area there are the openings for the hydromassage, in the deeper area there is the elastic springboard.
The internal covering is realized in plastic cloth, while the external paving – close to the travertine edge - has been created with marble pieces. All the marble pieces are different for dimensions and colors. They tonalities go from a clear-travertine colours to a dark Carrara marbles. All this marble pieces form a semicircle draw like a “peacock tail”. This motive is repeated with different materials also in other points of the Villa.
On the side close to the portico of the Villa, there is a sculpture formed by big white river stones. All these stones have been collected in water course close to the city of Massa Carrara.
From the sculpture, that is inspired by the Renaissance Fontanas, springs a touching water fall.
The swimming pool alimentation is a skimmer type, while the treatment of the water is nearly totally made up by chlorine, anti-algas and anti-vegetative.
