Location description from owner

The Marche region

Le Marche is often described as 'old Italy' where the landscape and traditions have barely changed for centuries. The region lies in central Italy and is bordered on the east by the Adriatic Coast and on the west by the Sibillini and Appenine mountains forming a border with Umbria. To the north are the borders of Tuscany, The Republic of San Marino and Emilia -Romagna, and to the south the region of Abruzzo. The climate is similar to that of neighbouring Umbria and Tuscany, very cold in the winter and very hot in the summer, although Le Marche has a bit more rain and is therefore greener.
The striking features of Le Marche are: 180km of coastline with a great variety of beaches, most notable are the beaches of the National Park of Monte Conero near Ancona; stunning natural landscape - dramatic mountains of the Sibillini National Park and breathtakingly beautiful undulating hills; delicious local food and wine - Le Marche is home to the famous white wine 'Verdicchio'; and medieval hilltop towns, each one a jewell, scattered all over the region - Urbino, Cingoli, Osimo, Monte San Martino, to name a few. The region is also home to some of Italy's most famous artists such as Raphael and masterpieces by Verocchio, Piero della Francesca Uccello may be seen in Urbino. Shopping is also a local passion as Le Marche is the centre of Italy's leather goods manufacture, from designer shoes and handbags to belts. Many of Italy's top design houses have their outlet shops in Le Marche.

San Severino Marche

The medieval town of Cingoli, known as the 'Balcony of the Marches' is 15 minutes drive away with panoramic views over the hills to the sea. It was the birthplace of one of Italy's Popes and has a gem of a museum in his former home. Cingoli also has some important churches and is also home to one of Italy's best known motorcross trails! The town of San Severino, known as 'City of Art', lies in the valley below (10 mins drive), it has a good museum and gallery of fine art as well as some important churches and monasteries.
The Frasassi Caves nearby are the longest in Italy, one chamber large enough to hold Milan Cathedral! Well worth a visit.
Macerata is host to the world famous open air opera season at the 'Sferisterio' (40mins from the house) which runs June-Aug.
Throughout the summer there are pageants and palios and food and wine festivals in the local villages.
Further afield is Urbino, the world-famous Renaissance town and birthplace of Raphael (1hr 40mins drive) and within 1.5- 2 hours are: Mirabilandia (Italy's version of Disney Land), Fabilandia (theme park for small children) Le Navi (Aquatic park) and Italy's famous theme park 'Italia in Miniatura' where you can visit all the main cities and sites of Italy in a day.
All the attractions listed above, and more, are given in more detail in the house pack.

“Utter perfection”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2015

The most beautiful of views, the comfiest of beds, a brilliant pool and a generally relaxed atmosphere combine to create a perfect holiday rental. We love Sogni Dei Santi and return often, visiting with a large group of friends and family spanning from babies to grandparents. There is always a quiet corner to escape to if you need peace and quiet and plenty of other spaces big enough to accommodate the entire group. The beautiful San Severino is within easy reach with its Benetton empire steadily growing much to the delight of all in our party! There is an abundance of wonderful restaurants nearby ranging from amazing giant pizzas on the side of hill to beautifully presented and delicious food at Ninetta's in San Severino. There is so much to explore in the region - mountains, vineyards, the sea, the gorgeous little towns. All in all it is one of our favourite places in the world and is extremely special!

“lovely, relaxing house and beautiful area”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2015

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house is big enough to manage lots of people and had everything we needed. Nothing was difficult to work out and it was like being home from home in that sense. There is plenty to explore in the local area, which was also very friendly. There was lots of sitting around enjoying the local wines and cheeses. And if you ever want to leave the house, San Severino is a short drive and has great restaurants and a slightly sleepy vibe, which was perfect for us. There are also plenty of trips further afield and we found the house handbook very comprehensive and useful. Very relaxing.

“As long as it's available, we will keep coming back.”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2015

A beautiful, comfortable and spacious home with everything you could need for a memorable stay in Le Marche. We travel all over Italy but have yet to find a location that we prefer.

“Sogni dei Santi way exceeded our expections and we can't wait to go back.”

Reviewed 23 Jan 2012

We stayed at Sogni dei Santi for October half-term with our five children and another family with three children and there was more than enough room for us all. The house has been beautifully restored with every modern luxury yet still retaining its character. It all has a 5* feel to it with everything having been done with top quality fittings and workmanship. In the kitchen there is everything a serious cook could ever need or want from fabulously sharp knives, beautiful platters to serve food on to stunning views from the kitchen windows! The children loved running around the beautiful garden, again with unbelievably beautiful views, and spent hours bouncing on the trampoline or playing table tennis. The pool looked beautiful but it was closed up for the winter. We went for wonderful walks in the incredibly unspoilt surrounding countryside, everywhere you look there is another perfect view. We enjoyed homemade icecreams in the nearby town called San Severino which has some lovely shops and a great supermarket selling local produce. In the evenings we would light the fire, listen to music from the iPod docking station, play some of the inumerable games that are kept in the games cupboard or watch a DVD. Then we would retire to our beds, the comfiest I have slept in for a long time, nestled in our crisp White Company bedlinen having had a long hot bath in our beautiful en-suite bathroom and wrapped ourselves in luxuriously fluffy white towels. We couldn't recommend Sogni dei Santi more highly and will definitely return - maybe in the Summer next time to try out the pool......

“Amazing holiday in the most beautiful and peaceful setting.”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2012

I went with a group of friends to this wonderful holiday home. It was such a beautiful setting in the hills with stunning views. The house itself was extremely spacious and perfect for a relaxing holiday. We enjoyed cooking fresh food from the market in the large kitchen and eating together in the outdoor dining area (there is an indoor dining area too, but the weather was perfect for sitting outdoors). We even barbecued one night. The pool was wonderful and we enjoyed a variety of outdoor activities including cycling, walking, swimming at a nearby lake and the list goes on. I would highly recommend this beautiful holiday home to anyone - you will have a fantastic time!
