LE MARCHE HOLIDAY APARTMENT WITH STUNNING VIEWS OF SIBILLINI MOUNTAINS

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in San Ginesio - Casa Carotondo

Spacious accommodation, large beautiful garden in tranquil location.

The apartments are part of an old stone farmhouse. The house has been sensitively restored adhering, where possible, to traditional design and retaining architectural features. The house is located in a small hamlet near Sarnano. It sits atop a small hill with stunning views of the mountains and the surrounding woodland and fields. The woodland offers opportunities for short strolls or even mountain biking. The apartments are on the ground floor of the farmhouse with their own entrances and outdoor space with table and chairs for al fresco dining. All apartments face the mountains and are surrounded by a large two tiered garden for the sole use of guests. The garden is mostly laid to grass with some terracing and flower beds. There are plenty of sun loungers available. There is a wash room equipped with washing machine, sink and iron for guests to use. We also have a small library of games, books and DVDs..

Cultural Activities: The Macerata area has been inhabited for 10000 years so there is plenty of history to enjoy. Urbs Salvia is the largest Roman era excavation in the area. Casa Carotondo is surrounded by medieval hilltop towns with architectural and artistic treasures of interest. In the Middle Ages Castles were built around the Calderola area, some have been restored and are worth visiting.The works of Carlo Crivelli are exhibited throughout the Marche, the nearest to Casa Carotondo being at Monte San Martino. Paintings by Lorenzo, Lotto, Titian and others are to be seen at various locations. For modern art head to Ripe San Ginesio. Visit the home of the famous Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi who was born and lived in the Marche in Recanati. Religion has played an important role in the Marche history find out more and visit the beautiful Cathedrals of Tolentino and Loretto. Day trips to famous Umbrian towns such as Assissi and Perugia are also possible..

Outdoors: Around Casa Carotondo you can take short strolls or mountainbike through woodland. There are routes in the surrounding countryside for walking or cycling from Sarnano or you can head into the Sibillini mountains. There are guidebooks for walking and cycling and we can help with route planning. Other possibilities include horse riding - the experienced can trek in the mountains. Paragliding is possible as are balloon flights over the area. You can swim or fish in Lago di Fiastra surrounded by mountains. If you just want to relax, drive to the top of the mountains, have a picnic and take in the views. In winter there is the possibility of downhill or cross country skiing. Further afield the Adriatic coast beckons with its sandy beaches and excellent fish restaurants. The Conero regional park is a rocky but beautiful stretch of coastline. Alternatively head north to the caves of Frassasi and the Gola della Rosa regional park.

Other: Sarnano, the nearest town, has a wide range of shops and three supermarkets. There is a weekly market for fresh produce and a number of shops selling specialty foods such as locally made Pecorino cheese. Alternatively you can try out 'la cucina marchigiana' at the many reasonably priced restaurants in the area. For those in need of more retail therapy outlet shopping is a possibility with names such as Armani and Hogans. Every summer each town puts on a number of festas to attract tourists. These generally involve live music and food. A number of the medieval towns also stage Palios. Every year San Ginesio reenacts a battle it fought with Fermo in 1377. There are numerous historical theaters in the area, which regularly have performances. There are a number of music festivals during the summer for blues, jazz and most famously the Sferisterio opera in Macerata. All too hectic? Then sit on your apartment terrace, enjoy a glass of wine, the cool evening breeze and listen to the cicadas

We are Rob Newman and Vanessa Foulkes. Before arriving in Le Marche, we lived in London working respectively as goldsmith and software consultant. We have done most of the renovation work at Casa Carotondo ourselves, which is why it took so long for us to start renting the apartments! We believe the renovation work to be of a high quality and have added character to the place as well as using traditional architectural features. We share the house with our friendly dog Chico.

Although we live on site we respect your desire for privacy while staying at Casa Carotondo. We are here, however, should you need help or want information.

A very well equipped apartment

  • Review Submitted: 29-Jan-2014
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2013
A lovely peaceful spot tucked away under the imposing Sibillini mountains! Very well equipped apartment, Rob and Vanessa have thought of everything (rolls of clingfilm and foil and a washing machine!!). We only had three nights, as we are touring Marche, but this is a gorgeous part of Italy, with a surprise around every corner!
We will be back. Thankyou Rob and Vanessa!

Quest'anno abbiamo scelto questa vacanza "alternativa" una casa in mezzo alla natura, e direi proprio "al centro" della natura senza confusione e rumori assordanti.
Parlo a nome di tutti beh ... ci e piaciuto veramente tanto. Complimenti Vanessa e Rob .... avete creato un angolo di Paradiso!! Alla prossima!!

Liebe Vanessa & Lieber Rob, Casa Carotondo ist der Urlaubsort den wir uns gewünscht haben. Euer Anwesen hat uns genügend Raum gegeben um uns zu entspannen und die Aktivitäten, die wir in der Umgebung erleben durften, haben uns ausgefüllt. So das wir immer wieder gerne herkommen werden! Wir werden den Ausblick vom Frühstückstisch sowie den Sprung in den Badeteich vermissen.
Vielen Dank für Eure vielen Informationen und Eure Gastfreundlichkeit.

Ideal location for walking in the mountains

  • Review Submitted: 29-Jan-2014
  • Date of Stay: Apr 2013
We have had a wonderful week exploring this area. The apartment is ideally located for walking in the mountains and trips further afield. The apartment contained everything we could have wished for and the idyllic setting was very relaxing. Thank you Vanessa for your hospitality and Chico for your visits.

Ein kleines Paradies!

  • Review Submitted: 29-Jan-2014
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2013
Unser erster Urlaub in den Marken. Durch Zufall haben wir im Internet die Homepage von Carotondo entdeckt - welch ein Gluck!! Vanessa und Rob haben hier eine kleines Paradies geschaffen - und das Beste - sie lassen andere Leute daran teilhaben. Wir haben die Ruhe hier sehr genossen - nein eigentlich war es ja gar keine Ruhe. Morgens wurden wir von Vogelgezwitscher geweckt und abends haben uns die Frösche in den Schlafgequakt. Dazwischen die Blütenpracht auf der Hochebene von Ragnolo, die seltsam anmütende Landschaft bei Castellucio, die Kühle des Bergbachs Tenna im Gole dell'Infernacio und, und, und ..... Vielen Dank liebe Vanessa und lieber Rob, daß wir hier sein durften und das Alles erleben konnten. Wir nehmen wunderschöne Erinnerungen an Marken mit nach Hause und wünschen Euch für die Zukunft alles Gute. Werner, Elke und Margit.
ps. daß die Wohnung super toll ist und man sich darin einfach nur wohlfühlen kann, haben ja unsere Vorgänger schon alle beschrieben - da können wir nur mit anschließen.

Casa Carotondo sits atop a small hill surrounded by farm and woodland. Our nearest neighbour is about 1km away. The holiday apartments face south-west and have a stunning view of the Sibillini Mountains (25 mins to the ski lifts). Despite the quiet location, Casa Carotondo is only 10 mins away from the lively market town of Sarnano offering culture, retail therapy and entertainment. Surrounded by medieval hilltop towns there is plenty of historical interest to enjoy. Nearby Lago di Fiastra offers swimming, fishing or paddling. The Adriatic coast is about 45 mins away offering sun, sea and some wonderful fish restaurants. The Sibillini mountains are the perfect playground for those wanting an active holiday; sports include hiking, mountain biking, horse-riding, and paragliding. If all that is too much, just drive up there, have a picnic and enjoy the breath taking views.
