Casa di Terro is a cosy, private and well appointed little villa perfect for a couple or small family.

This well restored farmhouse is set in a stunning position at the feet of the Sibillini mountains on the edge of a national park. The house retains its characteristic features such as terracotta floor tiles and beamed ceilings, combined with all modern comforts.

Nestled close to the mountains great walks start from the very doorstep and a little further up the Alpine-like valley is an enchanting waterfall where guests have been known to take a refreshing open air shower in summer months.

The waterfall then turns into a mountain stream and passes along the edge of the garden at Casa di Terro.

The Marche/Abruzzo region

Even today Marche remains a largely undiscovered gem in the heart of Italy, sandwiched between the stunning Apennine mountains on its western fringes and the beautiful Adriatic coast to the east.

Perhaps because Marche has historically been an isolated region, sheltered as it is from intrusion by its natural mountain borders to the north, south and west and by the Adriatic Sea, it is only slowly gaining rightful recognition.

The region gets comparatively little mention in the travel media, deferring to the wider fame of neighbouring Tuscany and Umbria. Yet it can justifiably claim to be Italy’s very own Garden of Eden.

It boasts lush greenery (often a surprise to visitors) and an enchanting mixture of sunflower fields, abundant woodland, many rivers which wind their way down to a beautiful coastline, and stunning mountain scenery.

Bordering both Umbria and Tuscany, as well as Abruzzo, Lazio and Emilia-Romagna, the region has an identity all of its own.

Walkers, trekkers and nature lovers can also find their feet here, with regional and national parks offering an abundance of outdoor activities, including trekking, mountain biking, paragliding, nature trails, hunting and fishing and ski-ing.

Marche has two national parks, the Monti Sibillini National Park and the Gran Sasso Monti Della Laga National Park.

The Monti Sibillini National Park actively promotes and protects wildlife habitats and has played a key role in building a stable population of wolves and other creatures such as the golden eagle. Wild boar abound and with the help of active re-introduction programmes there are also now signs of the return of the Marsicana brown bear from its stronghold in neighbouring Abruzzo. There are even signs of the return of the secretive and shy lynx.

Rising 572m from the sea near Ancona, Monte Conero is one of Marche’s best known landmarks. It is home to a regional park and is an excellent place to see birds such as the marsh harrier and long-legged buzzard, while its coastal waters offer beautiful coved beaches and are ideal for organised boat trips.

The other regional park by the sea is the Colle San Bartolo Regional Park near Gabicce, home to wetlands of national importance.

A myriad of fascinating caves form the central attraction of the inland park, Gola della Rossa Frasassi Regional Park, recognised as the most interesting limestone caves in Italy. Special tours lead you through a series of caves complete with small lakes, stalactites, huge stalagmites and onto the truly cavernous Abisso Ancona, a cave from ground to ceiling fully 240m high.

Sarnano

The waterfall then turns into a mountain stream and passes along the edge of the garden at Casa di Terro.

The nearby village of Terro is little more than a hamlet but five minutes drive away is the pretty hill-top town of Sarnano, with a population of around 4,000 people and a popular destination for tourists in summer months, with a wide choice of restaurants, bars, shops and a nightclub.

In the winter Sarnano is a base for skiers, who take advantage of the good snow conditions on the uncrowded ski slopes higher up the mountains. And the town is also noted for its curative natural springs, enticing many from the surrounding area to visit in search of salutary benefits.

The weekly market in the town is also a good opportunity to stock up on local delicacies such as ciauscolo, the local salami, and various types of cheeses and even to take advantage of the tasty porchetta (roast pork) on sale in the piazza.

The area is popular with walkers and skiers and any visit should include a walk in the mountains. Walking guide books in english are available in the local tourist information offices and offer picturesque walks for every level, from a leisurely stroll to a gruelling mountain trek.

Good road links mean that guests are also within easy driving distance of the provincial capitals of Macerata and Ascoli Piceno and the seaside resorts dotted along the Adriatic Coast.

While for those prefering to explore further inland the Umbria border is but a short drive away.
