Description from owner

Description

This delightful, ancient house is built on a part of the medieval wall that encircles the ancient, historic city of Camerino. All the historic buildings (including the cathedral, the university, the splendid theatre and the treasure-filled museums) as well as the many bars and restaurants are all within walking distance. Although this is an ancient building, everything has been fully restored. It is is on three levels. At the entrance level from the narrow cobbled street, there is a dining-room/lounge with a small terrace overlooking a spectacular landscape, plus a study and a small bathroom with shower, wc & sink. On the floor below is the newly equipped kitchen, a utility room (including washing machine) and outside a much larger terrace with similar views of the valleys and hills that surround Camerino. On the top floor are two double-bedrooms and a bathroom with bath, shower, wc. and wash-basin.

Location description from owner

The Marche region

Camerino

The city of Camerino is situated in the Apennine mountains of central Italy, in the province of Macerata (Marche Region). Enjoying a panoramic view, it is located in a pleasant position on a mountain ridge that separates the Valley of two rivers, the Chienti and the Potenza. Its old centre has seen little change over the last few centuries, leaving it a particularly attractive sight, and the opulence of the architecture is all the more impressive considering that the town can claim a mere 5,000 inhabitants.
The city's site has been inhabited from the Neolithic Period. By 309 BC, Camerino had signed an alliance with Rome and had become a flourishing Roman municipality. It was also the seat of a Lombard dukedom associated with Spoleto. Later, under Charlemagne. the city was made the capital of the Marca of Camerino, a region which extended from the Appennines to the sea. The city was consistently allied with the Guelph faction and was damaged by the imperial troops of Manfredi in 1259. Then, under the “Signoria” of Varano, from the end of 1200s to 1539, the city grew and prospered artistically and commercially. This period of political and cultural vitality was interrupted only when the last of the Da Varano rulers, Giulio Cesare, was tragically deposed by Cesare Borgia in 1502. However, Guilio's son, Giovanni Maria, regained control of the city in 1503 and acquired the title of duke, with jurisdiction over the valley of the river Nera as far as the sea.
Most of Camerino was built during the enlightened rule of the Da Varano family between the 14th and 16th centuries when its court drew artists and scholars from across Italy. In 1545, the city was once again brought under the direct rule of the Holy See and functioned as one of the principal cities of the Papal Province until the Unification of Italy. The narrow main street takes you from the town's fortress to the principal square, Piazza Cavour, around which stand the Cathedral, the Archbishop's Palace and the Ducal Palace, now the seat of the Law faculty of Camerino University. Over it all watches a fine statue of Pope Sixtus V, dating from 1587. The porticoed courtyard of the Ducal Palace is partly attributed to the great 15th century architect, Baccio Pontelli. It leads to a splendid balcony with views of the Sibillini Mountains.
The grand architectural complex of San Domenico, built between the 13th and 16th centuries, has been restored and now houses a choice collection of works from the Camerino School of painting. Another of Camerino's gems is the Teatro Marchetti, off the courtyard in the Town Hall. Built in 1856, it has recently been restored and is the home of many of the city's musical and theatrical activities.
