How would you describe Airstream Petrarolo in a nutshell?
The Airstream is a beautifully renovated 1972 Airstream Overlander with a sumptuous double bedroom with en-suite wet room shower and toilet. It can comfortably accommodate 2 adults and up to 3 smaller children.
The Airstream has a fully fitted kitchen with basin, gas hob and oven grill, plus a fridge/freezer. Delicious meals can be eaten on the dining table inside, or outside al fresco style, in the shade of the sun or under the stars. There is also an outdoor BBQ.
The Airstream is set in a beautiful field overlooking the orange grove with stunning 160-degree views of the sea. Staying in a caravan is an experience that should be tried by everyone.
What is the story behind Airstream Petrarolo, what was your inspiration to create it?
I found the Airstream in North Dakota, USA, and brought it back to England to be fully renovated into a boutique stay experience in keeping with the design standards of our other properties. We wanted to retain all the gorgeous original exterior features of the original classic American camper caravan and yet bring the interiors up to boutique standards.
How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design?
Traditional Airstreams from the 1970s have interiors that are typical of their era — our Airstream has been completely gutted and rebuilt to create bright, soft, spacious, welcoming spaces to sleep, eat and enjoy.
The curved ceilings, soft suede surfaces and natural wooden furniture create a serene sense of belonging and well-being.
