For 6 weeks this was our home while waiting for our house purchase to complete. Spacious enough for our two dogs and us, the accommodation is on the first floor level and is comfortable and very clean. It is in an elevated position and has large doors leading onto balconies with views of the surrounding farm land. The garden is totally fenced and there are good walks along white roads in several directions and shops also within walking distance. The accommodation is well equipped with a good sized fridge and washing machine, essential for an extended stay. The air conditioning unit also gave a pleasant relief from the extraordinary hot weather experienced this year. The owners live locally and are very attentive, providing information and assistance where needed. They generously provided us with home-grown vegetable and treated us to a lovely evening in their cantina where we sampled their own wines and local foods. Casa Il Gelso is close to Senigallia and handy for the beach and is only about 20 minutes from Ancona airport. A good location to stay for striking out to the lovely hill top towns and villages around the area where there is plenty going on throughout the summer. Also we were fortunate enough to be around for the wine tasting event at Morro d’Alba and had a fantastic evening tasting wines and learning about the Lacrima grape variety. With places in short supply that will take dogs this is a very good find.

We expected to have to walk up lots of stairs but a lift took us up the first four flights and we only had to walk up one flight . Ancona is wonderful and the flat is well placed in the centre of everything. The roof terrace is ideal for lazing about in and is a real sun trap. Every attempt has been made to provide everything you should need during your stay and Eris gave us a warm welcome. Many thanks for a lovely holiday, Chris Lee
