If you want a peaceful holiday away from tourist crowds in the heart of traditional Italy, Casa Valentina is the place for you. Once a summer residence for monks dating back hundreds of years, the tastefully restored villa is situated in rolling countryside close to both sea and mountains in a region where the warmth and hospitality of the Italian people survives. The ancient town of Loro Piceno is home of vino cotto, a delicious dessert wine, and the area has many excellent but inexpensive restaurants. Our house is on three floors in more than an acre of land with a large garden and swimming pool surrounded by an extensive tiled area. The peace is only disturbed by the melodic chiming of Loro Piceno's church bells on the hillside opposite the villa. Beaches or the majestic Sibillini mountains are 40 minutes away. The extensive ruins of the ancient Roman city of Urbs Salvia are less than 10 minutes from the house and the area is full of hill towns as beautiful as those in Umbria and Tuscany, but less well known and developed. Art treasures wait to be discovered in little-known, ancient churches and festivals light up local hill towns during the summer. There are terracotta tiles throughout the spacious and airy house, a hand-made maple kitchen and three modern bathrooms plus a downstairs toilet. Four double/one single bedroom. One hour from Ancona airport. Also accessible from Bologna, Rome, Pisa and Pescara. Many picturesque hill towns are nearby including Macerata -- which hosts a renowned summer opera festival -- Tolentino and Ascoli Piceno, the jewel of the Marche region. Please note significant discounts available for smaller groups. Six people preferred to the maximum number.
