Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Villa Liliana is an impressive villa sleeping up to 6 guests sitting on a beautiful hill overlooking one of the most stunning vallyes in all of Italy and is situated in the perfect location for your next dream holiday. Your villa has not been restored, rather it has been lovingly builit from scratch over the last 5 years using the very best natural local materials and has been designed purely for the discerning holidaymaker in mind so offers that much more than your average holiday rental.
Your views really are 360° panoramic. From the villa you will see on the left the Adriatic sea where you can explore award winning blue flag beaches. Working your way around your view you will discover beautiful rolling hills with a mixture of grapevines, sunflowers and orchards. On top of the rolling hills are medieval hilltop towns where around every corner you'll find some of the secrets of Italy waiting to be discovered. In the distance is the perfect backdrop to this picture - the the drama of the Sibillini National Park with its rugged and beautiful mountains.
Your dream villa has three beautiful light and airy bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have double beds and the third bedroom has two single beds. If you come as a group of 8 there is a very comfortable double sofa bed in in the lounge.
The master bedroom is very spacious with lots of storage and has views going towards to Adriatic coast. The bedroom has a hand made natural "cotto" floor which feels cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The on suite to this bedroom has has a luxurious feel with its antique marble tiles and high end bathroom fittings. In the bedroom itself you won't find a single piece of Ikea furniture - it has all been hand made by Italian craftsment.
The second bedroom which again is very spacious has views of the mountains and has been tastefully and elegantly furnished. There are the same natural "cotto" floors to enjoy and lots of storage space.
The third bedroom has two single beds but if you would prefer this to be made up as a double, simply let us know before your arrival and we will arrange the room for you accordingly.
It is little things that make all the difference to your stay at Villa Liliana. For example, as well as supplying sheets and towels as you would expect from any villa rental, we also pay attention to detail and supply for example, dressing gowns.
Your lounge has some of the best veiws from the villa - overlooking the stunning Valdaso with the Sibillini National Park in the background. This incredible scene is viewed through one of the most beautiful features of the villa, the two large arched window doors.
There is a large and comfortable sofa, two armchairs, so you'll have lots of space to spread out. There is also a large flat TV with satellite television, and a docking station for connecting an iPod and of course there is a WIFI Internet hotspot.
There is a dining table at the other end of the lounge with ample seating for 8 guests although in the Spring, Summer and Autumn months you may like to dine outside under the portico where we have another large dining table.
The kitchen is extremely well equipped with all the pots, pans, crockery etc that you could possibly need throghout your holiday. There is also a fridge/freezer, oven, microwave, gas hob, dishwasher and a washing machine. You'll find in the fridge a few bottles of wine from our personal cantina with our compliments as a welcome gift.
Villa Liliana is surrounded by more than 6000 square meters of land, of which 2000 are in the garden.
We are building a new pool to 'avant-garde with relaxation area and massage session which will be ready by April 1.
The pool is 12 meters long, 6 wide and 135 cm deep.
The solarium pool is large 200 square meters and has a bathroom without the inconvenient of having to go back into the house.
You needn't be stuck in the kitchen on holiday as there is a barbecue area for cooking all the lovely fresh produce found in the village shops or at one of the many local markets. For the authentic Italian flavour please feel feel free to help yourself to some herbs from the herb garden for your barebecue.
If you are out in the evening you will have a welcome return to Villa Liliana as the main path to the villa has lavendar plants that as well as looking great, give off a wonderful relaxing scent.

The Marche/Abruzzo region
Marche is a region on the Adriatic coast, which borders with Romagna to the north, Abruzzo to the south, Toscana and Umbria to the west. It's landscape is quite special, with a low coastline, interrupted only by the Monte Conero near it's capital Ancona, a promontory with white cliffs and clear waters. Only a few thousand meters from the coast hills equal to those of Toscana for their poise and serene beauty. Peaks like Monte Carpegna provide a healthy and attractive skiing destination for many Europeans.
It is a peculiar region, with provinces which hold their own identity, and their own dialects: Pesaro the northern most province, famous because it is the hometown of the composer Gioacchino Rossini; Urbino, one of the most beautiful University towns in Italy, and birthplace of painter Raffaello Sanzio. Urbino had its splendour in the Renaissance, the treasures, buildings and palaces still standing proud;
Ancona, the capital , with its important port and home to the second Marine Academy in Italy;
Macerata, beautiful city with its famous Arena Sferisterio, the theater which is said to have the best acoustics in the world, and province of Recanati, one of the most beautiful hill towns in the Marche, and home to writer Giacomo Leopardi, and of tenor Beniamino Gigli; Ascoli Piceno, and it's roman bridge, it's Malatesta fortress, and it's beautiful marble Piazza del Popolo.
It is a land of conjunction between the north and south, and the cuisine is also a conjunction of all the regions which surround the Marche. In ancient cooking books, Marche is not listed, because nothing original was found there, but how can you explain that if you travel the length of this region you can eat better than anywhere else in Italy?
One of the reasons is that the fertile land gives ingredients which are unique in their taste, and it makes for better quality. Add to this the fact that the people of the Marche have a tradition of interacting with their neighbours and have an innate gentleness and hospitality. All is done to perfection, with love and pride.
The coastal area offers fish dishes which are superb, although the fish in the central Adriatic is not sophisticated: the “brodetto“ being the day's catch cooked with a light tomato sauce and coloured with safron; the "lumachine di mare“ cooked in a light fresh tomato sauce and flavoured with wild fennel; the spiedini, like in Romagna, just flavoured with garlic and oil and put on the charcoal.
The hills and the forests give treasures like wild mushrooms and the famous "tartufi“, second in taste only to those from Alba in the Piemonte (actually the Marchigiani say that Alba buys their trouffles in the Marche) whether that is true or not is not important, but it is a fact that the Marche is the largest producer in Italy of this exquisite tuber.
Then the Porchetta - roast pork which is found in markets and even along the roads of the Marche. Bordering regions claim primate to the Porchetta, but the Marche insists it originated there. It is surely quite delicious, as like just about everything else, it is cooked with patience, with the best herbs, the most aromatic wood goes into the barbecue... makes you hungry just thinking about it.
If one must name a dish that is typical of the Marche, then it is surely the "Vincisgrassi“, a Lasagna dish that is made with ingredients that differ depending on which province they are prepared: besciamella and typical minced meat ragout in the north of the region and a sauce made of wild mushrooms, chicken interiors, ham and tartufo in the internal towns.
A famous dish in the Pescara region is the "ravioli“ with ricotta stuffing, and served with a peculiar sauce made from lemon sole, wine and tomato, and topped with loads of Parmigiano.
Ascoli Piceno has the unique "Olive Ascolane“, large juicy green olives pitted and stuffed with meat, then breaded and deep fried.
There aren't an extensive variety of sweets, but those that are made in the Marche are simple and fragrant. Doughnuts, "piconi“ a raviolo made of sweet dough, and the "frustignolo“, a Christmas cake stuffed with crushed almonds often grace the table to cap a meal.
But the true Marchigiani way to end a meal is to serve fresh Pecorino cheese, of compact consistency and with the aroma that comes from the herbs that the sheep is free to eat in the immense pastures.
Wines are excellent in the Marche: from the whites like Verdicchio and Bianchello del Metauro, to the reds, like Rosso Conero and Rosso Piceno. And the variety of sweet wines: the Vin Santo Marchigiano and the Visner, unique to the Marche and made from the "visciola“ cherry.
One suggestion: the first experience with "La Tavola Marchigiana“ should be directly on a hill overlooking the Adriatic Sea, so as to delight the palate, and all the other senses.
Villa Liliana is a wonderfull holiday House a the top of a hill between Aso and Indaco' s Valley.
Monte Rianldo is famous for its very reach archeological area with te Roman Teample.
