We have finally located the right wood for the construction of our Russian style Sauna, and are hoping to start work on the construction very shortly.
The Sauna will be of the Russian style, that is hotter than a traditional scandinavian sauna. The stove which will also heat the water for the shower and plunge bath will be fired with wood from our estate.
Despite a large Moldavian and Eastern European population currently there are no russian style saunas in either Gubbio or Perugia areas. Day visitors will be welcome to use the facility.
The sauna will be sited in the garden to the west of the main house. The building will be wooden construction with a large wooden decking area, and in accordance with our eco-sustainability policy the insulation material will be natural.
A covered verandah with changing space and showers will lead into the sauna proper. Benches for lying side by side run across the rear wall, with two levels of seating benches to either side. Lighting will be by LED
Outside there will be a large deck area with space for reclining loungers, a couple of tables and chairs (need somewhere to drink that chilled beer!!!) and the two old wine vats that will serve as plunge pools, one tepid the other cold water! The deck will have un-interrupted view down the Chiascio valley and also in the summer will be a perfect place for sunbathing
