Carefully restored in 2009 this stone villa is very well equipped. All four bedrooms are en suite, the pool is a real treasure and the kitchen has all an accomplished chef could need.

The wrap around ground floor portico provides lots of shady space to relax and read, eat long lunches and dinners, or sit back with a glass of something cool and refreshing and marvel at the view.

The property is set in 10 acres of land and is at the end of a white track, ensuring guests total privacy. A small vineyard behind the property provides the owners with several hundred litres of wine every year and to the other side of the property beyond the garden is a small wood.

The Marche region

The region’s medieval hilltop towns are awash with museums and art. The Marche town of Recanati was home to one of Italy’s most celebrated poets, Giacomo Leopardi and Marche was also the birthplace of great masters such as Raphael and Bramante, giving lineage to its modern-day artistic vibrancy, with a number of outstanding twentieth century artists coming from the area.

Divided into four provinces, Marche’s regional capital is Ancona, a port which came to prominence in the sixteenth century and is second in importance only to Venice on the Adriatic.

Other historically important places include the university towns of Urbino, Camerino and Macerata. Urbino boasts the Galleria nazionale delle Marche, probably the most important of Marche’s 234 museums.

Macerata is home to the Sferisterio, which along with the Arena in Verona is one of Italy’s most important outdoor opera venues, where in July and August people flock from around the globe to see performances of opera and classical music. The town also has fine examples of Renaissance, Baroque and eighteenth century architecture.

Camerino is a beautiful town in the heart of the Appenines. The historic university was extensively damaged by an earthquake in 1997 but has now been almost completely restored.

The town of Loreto is home to one of the most important shrines to the Virgin Mary in the world. Its owes its existence largely due to the thousands of pilgrims that come to see the house of the Madonna, which is said to have been transported there from Nazareth by celestial angels during the Crusades. More likely it was dismantled brick by brick and brought over by ship.

Uniquely, Ascoli Piceno, a town important since Etruscan times, has a beautiful central piazza made entirely of travertine marble, testimony to the town’s rich and glorious past.

And the region is dotted with castles and fortresses, has at least eight spa towns specialised in the treatment of various ailments and is home to many different traditional crafts, notably in the town of Offida, where even today the ladies of the town can be seen making finely detailed traditional lace garments in the town’s cobbled streets.

In fact many traditional crafts are still practised throughout the region and provide an important mainstay to the economy. They include production of handmade paper at Fabriano (the first of its kind in Europe), terracotta vases and pots, copper, iron and wool products, hat-making and the manufacture of musical instruments, notably violins in Ascoli Piceno.

Mogliano

The property is located close to the lively medieval market town of Mogliano and is only 25 minutes drive to the coast and 45 minutes drive to the Monti Sibillini Mountains.

The national park of the same name boasts some of the highest mountains in the Apennines, with Monte Vettore the highest in the park at 2,476m (8,124 ft) and many others including Sibilla and Priora (both well over 2,000m) which dominate the skyline for miles around.

Wildlife abounds, with a stable wolf population, deer, plenty of wild boar (often on the menu!), porcupines, hares, eagles, falcons and hawks all present in the park.

There is wonderful walking, with footpaths marked and described on maps available in information centres in all the towns and villages in the park. There are also peaks with a truly alpine character, like Monte Bove, whose formidable north face offers climbing for mountaineers.

Mogliano is a pretty town with a number of bars and restaurants and one striking claim to fame. The church of Santa Maria Assunta is home to a masterpiece called the Assumption, as is the church, painted by the great Venetian painter Lorenzo Lotto in 1548.

The property is also close to Petriolo.

5/5

"Modern, well equipped and in a lovely quiet spot."

Casa Giulia is huge (the photos don't do it justice) and very well presented. A marvellous kitchen with all utensils (even sharp knives - "blimey!") and equipment, inside and outside dining areas, a lovely lounge, and 4 ensuite bedrooms with tall ceilings. The local area is rather poor in respect of great restaurants - adequate, but not great - which actually suited us; an excuse to dine most evenings at Casa Giulia with its amazing views over the valley!
We spent two glorious weeks in 40 deg sunshine melting around the pool, playing, reading books, cooking, eating, drinking lovely regional wine, and resting.... A great way to recharge the batteries.
