A paradise for walkers with countless trails criss-crossing the hills and passing through villages virtually unchanged since medieval times.

"Rest and comfort in splendid surroundings"

First and main plus points of the Coccinella Apartment are it's peaceful location and it's fantastic view from the large terrace. The apartment itself is spacious, tastefully decorated and comfortable, with a brand new, very completely equipped kitchen. Reception by caretakers Barbara and Kevin was extremely kind, the unwilling satellite tv being fixed by them on the very first evening. The area offers endless delights, with the Sibillini Mountains and the Piano Grande (Castellucio) as most memorable ones. Nice walks in the immediate neighbourhood as well (extensive documentation and maps provided). Restaurant down the road to Preci is gorgeous, with surprisingly modest prices. Good value for money. Certainly recommended.
