The Marche/Abruzzo region
Gazing west from this Marche villa there are wonderful views of the enchanting Sibillini Mountains, a truly wild place to feast the eyes upon and a stunningly beautiful place to visit.
In the opposite direction is the spectacle of the famed medieval walls of the old town of San Ginesio, which despite its small size is well known for its architectural charm and attracts many visitors to eat at the restaurant in the central piazza or have a drink at the adjacent bar.
This delightful little town has obvious historical pedigree, from its unusual Gothic topped Romanesque church in the central piazza, to the statue of one of the town's most admired forefathers, Alberico Gentili, a sixteenth century law professor at Oxford University and a man generally regarded as a leading contributor to modern legal thinking.
The walled, medieval town of San Ginesio is one of the Marche’s most beautiful and is a short walk from Casa Cavaliere. It has a number of cafes, bars, restaurants, grocers, butchers, small supermarkets, a post office, two banks and a Sunday market. There are several churches, one with a crypt decorated with frescoes by Salimbeni, and regular concerts and festivals including the palio in August.
From rambling or skiing in the Sibillini mountains to sunbathing on the beaches of the Adriatic, Casa Cavaliere is particularly well situated. Macerata holds an annual opera festival in the summer months, the Basilica in Tolentino has a beautiful fresco painted by an unknown artist in the style of Giotto, Ascoli Piceno has a Renaissance marble piazza surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants and the cathedral there houses a painting by the Renaissance artist Crivelli.
