House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Situated at the top of a private road atop a hill, with commanding views of the rolling Marche countryside and Monte Catria and Monte Acuto, Casa delle Querce stands in half a hectare of beautifully maintained grounds.
Casa delle Querce was purpose built as three separate holiday homes, all of which are on two floors, with three bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and spacious lounge-dining room, with a log fire. Each home has its own private entrance and veranda with garden table and chairs, leading to the surrounding garden.
The three homes share a lovely private swimming pool, situated above the building to catch all the sun. Shaded by trees, the pool area has a stunningly beautiful view right out across the valley.
The surrounding countryside is ideal for walks and the nearby historic towns are ideal for exploring, and sampling the fantastic local foods and wine. Casa delle Querce is ideal for families, couples or groups.

The Marche/Abruzzo region
Le Marche is one of Italy's best kept secrets. On Italy's East coast, between the Adriatic and Apennines, the Marches are relatively undiscovered, yet surprisingly accessible. A mosaic of ancient cities, rolling hills, dramatic mountains, hidden valleys and long, sandy beaches, Le Marche is an outstanding holiday destination. The inland area is almost tourist-free and the local people are friendly and helpful to strangers.
The landscape of Le Marche ranges from undulating agricultural fields and vine clad slopes to snow-capped mountains and dramatic gorges. The winters in this region are always snowy and there are several ski resorts in the area, whilst the summers have Mediterranean sun and heat.
Le Marche is rich in historical, artistic and cultural heritage which has been preserved and unlike its neighbours Umbria and Tuscany, is relatively undiscovered and still unspoiled by tourism.
Every small hilltop village in this region has a beautiful church and a welcoming bar, but more than that, throughout summer and autumn each village has its local festa or sagra, usually based on produce from mushrooms, sausages, fruit, wine or chestnuts depending on the season. It is a time for eating and drinking, processions, music and dancing.
Pergola, the nearest town to the house, is an historic town with winding streets and beautiful old churches. It has a wide selection of fantastic, reasonably priced Italian restaurants and cafes.
The area surrounding the house has several other villages and towns for you to explore. Each holding its own historic castles, churches and museums, along with delightful cafes and restaurants.
The whole area is a walker's paradise with many mountain paths, guided walks if you require, and a stunning array of wild flowers to be seen.
There are several places to go for wine tasting in the area, and you will be able to sample the excellent and reasonably priced local wines.
If you want to travel further a field it is easy to go on day trips to Tuscany, Umbria and the coast at Senigallia.
It is also the perfect place for relaxing by the pool.
