THE LAND SURROUNDING THE PROPERTY :
I ROGGIAI is surrounded by14 hectares / 34.5 acres of land and has a walking path (1.6km) that circumvents most of the property.
In 1978 the current owner enclosed the entire property with a metal fence and obtained the government label as ‘Fondo Chiuso’ (article 842 of the Italian Civil Code) that forbids anyone from hunting on the property - -thereby making it an Ecological Reserve ensuring the safety and protection for all animals and wild life.
It is important to understand that, in Italy, unless a property is legally declared ‘Fondo Chiuso’ hunters or tourists can meander through your property at their pleasure. Therefore the ‘Fondo Chiuso’ is quite important as it ensures 100% privacy for both the owner and the wild life and any trespassers can be legally pursued.
The land is broken up as follows:
2.5h / 6.2a of olive trees with circa 90 olive trees
1.5h / 3.7a of farmable fields - -or pastures for horseback riding.
2.5h / 6.2a of Pine Woods (trees are circa 25 years old and over 10 meters high)
7h / 16.5a of Woods
NOTE ON BUILDING OR RENOVATING :
