|Further details indoors|
There are two apartments, each of 115 square metres gross floorspace, and both have been furnished and equipped to a high standard. We have sought to keep the essential character of the original building whilst providing all the facilities you require to enjoy your holiday.
We provide several electric fans for the warm weather, underfloor heating for the winter and a log-burning fire in the ground floor apartment. The spacious rooms feature beamed ceilings and cotto tile floors. We have provided a good selection of DVDs, board games, magazines and tourist information including walking guides and maps.
|Further details outdoors|
Within the garden there are vines that provide grapes for the local "vino cotto" dessert wine as well as many olive trees and several fruit trees. Near to the 12 x 6 meter swimming pool (open June to October) there is a summer house that includes a cold shower, toilet and hand basin.
There is ample parking and turning facilities for several cars. The house has a fine, sunny southerly aspect with extensive views to nearby villages over the rolling countryside.
Access to the first floor apartment is via a gently angled external staircase. The ground floor one is more suitable for less abled people, but there is easy access to both from the car park.
The Marche region
Le Marche is a beautiful, unspoiled and relatively undiscovered region of Italy that offers bountiful sun, mountains, lakes, grottos, sea coves and beaches. Located in north-central Italy on the Adriatic seaboard, Le Marche is accessed easily via the international airports at Ancona, Bologna to the north, and Pescara to the south.
Le Marche is renowned for its quintessential medieval hilltop towns and villages, historic remains, and its glorious renaissance architecture. This region is still dominated by agriculture, and being undiscovered by mass tourism offers an insight into real Italian life. This fascinating part of Italy conceals a wealth of art, architecture, museums, castles, forts, Roman antiquities, good food, high-class wines, and offers a wide range of outdoor activities from skiing and horse riding to climbing, walking, mountain biking and paragliding.
Casa Tranquilla, our converted Italian farmhouse, enjoys a sunny south-facing aspect just below Loro Piceno in the south of the region. We are in the province of Ascoli Piceno, not far from the provincial city of Macerata that boasts an annual music festival in August second only to Verona. Here at Loro Piceno you are within easy reach of the beautiful beaches of the Adriatic and the dramatic Sibillini Mountains, which separate Le Marche from the neighbouring region of Umbria.
Our farmhouse is at the side of a quiet country lane with hardly any traffic, and provides uninterrupted views across the valley to nearby villages. It is set in 15 acres of arable land that is normally planted with wheat or sunflowers. It comes with the "obligatory" small vineyard that produces the local “vino cotto” speciality (a sweet dessert wine), and a stand of olive trees together with several fruit and nut trees.
There is much to see and do in the area including the show caves at Frassassi, the World Heritage town of Urbino, the many medieval towns and villages with their abundant festivals including Opera Festival at Macerata and music festival at Colmurano and a host of speciality events in all the villages. You can safely swim in the Adriatic sea or the freshwater Lake Fiastra, and climb, walk, bike and paraglide in the beautiful Sibillini mountains, or take a more leisurely look at ancient Roman remains or the works of the notable Italian artists.
Places like Rome Venice, Bologna, Assisi and Perugia are all possible to include in a day out.

"Comfortable with glorious views, aromatic herbal gardens leading to pool"
One of the best villas we have stayed in, well stocked kitchen with wine to buy cupboard , clean and well thought out. market town just a few minutes by car, has everything you will need.
Will be back as need longer to explore the historic hilltop towns and a visit to the coast and sea food restaurants, 10 days not long enough!
Great service by the owners

"Lovely apartment with fantastic view in real Italy"
Great apartment, well-equipped for a comfortable stay. Lovely pool, although it didn't look very inviting when we first arrived (very cloudy and green!) but the pool man got it sorted out by half way through our stay. It didn't stop us using it though! Our 5 year old made full use of the pool for every day of our 10 day stay.
A lovely part of Italy with amazing views. Loro Piceno is quite small but has all the facilities you will need. We loved exploring the little cobbled streets and stopping for a coffee or ice-cream at the little friendly cafe in the centre of town. A visit to the somewhat eccentric local butcher is a must!
Some great coast within 40 minutes drive. Really friendly, pretty resorts.
Fab local restaurants although we really enjoyed cooking at at the apartment with local produce.
