Showering in the World’s Largest Bathroom
At Bellaugello we love being naked and especially under the outdoor showers
You wake us as the sun peaks through the window, it’s going to be another glorious day. Stumble out of bed, I hope you have slept naked. Grab a thick fluffy towel from the large bathroom of your suite. Open the main door and wander onto your private terrace. A long languorous stretch, a flex of arms and maybe a yawn and repositioning of your jewels. Walking a few paces, you admire the large view, the tranquillity punctuated by the sound of wild birds and buzzing of bees feeding greedily on nectar. There is a splash… is that guys swimming already in the infinity pool, maybe you go and check.
A walk over the lawns, underfoot deliciously damp with morning dew to the pool, the water crystal clear and sparkling, and seemingly falling over the infinity edge, into the mist lingering languidly low in the valley below. Wow! this pool is stunning, the views huge and the sunbathing space generous. No, it is not guys swimming but one of the Bellaugello team taking Hagbard the pool robot out of the water. Overnight Hagbard has worked to clean the pool. Yes, this magical place even has a name for the pool robot cleaner.
A slow saunter back to your suite, and flick the lever on the outdoor shower. Immerse yourself in delicious hot water, heated ecologically by the solar panels that Bellaugello use.
Yours could be the shower on the private terrace of the spacious Giardino Suite, the duplex room with huge commanding views south over the valley towards Monte Subasio and Assisi. The room is just a few paces down the lawn from the swimming pool, the terrace enjoys sun almost all of the day. As well of the shower you will find there sun loungers and a table with chairs so you can eat ‘al fresco’ or, if you must work or surf the internet there is, like over all the property a good wifi connection.
Maybe you have reserved the Azzurro Suite, the room with not only a terrace but also a small private garden with sun loungers. The Azzurro Suite is in the oldest part of the house, traditional in feel, and many windows so making it light and airy. The suite overlooks the swimming pool with views to the Apennines. The shower is decked with wisteria, the long pendulous violet flowers fragrant and blowsy every May.
Like the outdoor shower of the Giardino Suite, this shower is not totally public, nor totally private, but has oodles of delicious hot water.
