The Guest Cottage

Recently when staying the weekend at our home in Asti, I decided to do a "photo shoot" of the guest cottage. Actually, we don't use the house for guests, but instead it is our master bedroom. When we have guests staying with us, they usually sleep in the main house. We love having our own separate quarters except when it's raining and we have to walk in the dark to go to bed! Otherwise, it feels more special to sleep here. Like having our own private spa retreat!

The house is divided into two rooms. The bedroom is in the back providing total privacy with a view of ancient oak trees looking north. In front is the sitting room with a sofa bed for extra guests. In between the two rooms is the bathroom.

View of the guest cottage looking north. The house was originally a two car garage! The previous owner converted it and I think did an excellent job. He put in a total of seven french doors which takes away from the garage look. Floors are cement throughout. In the future, a mini kitchen could be installed making it self contained.
