Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Macerata, Italy your home away from home

The medieval walled town of Macerata is found in the Marche region of eastern central Italy. Built between the 16th and 19th centuries, the town has an understated dignity, with striking Renaissance architecture surrounding two-tiered arcades and fine palaces. Macerata is a hugely cultural place to visit, adorned with provincial art galleries, charming cafes and surrounded by outstanding Roman relics. However, most people will have originally been drawn to a holiday rental villa in Macerata for the world famous open air Opera Festival in July.

The Macerata Opera Festival is staged in the colossal Sferisterio arena, a masterpiece of Neoclassical architecture which, although originally designed for Pallone (Italian football), perfectly resonates the operatic marvels which unfold below. During July when the festival is staged, holiday homes in Macerata become even more popular than they are during the rest of the year due to the international audience which make the journey annually, so booking early is usually essential.

The adjacent Corso della Republica is home to fine provincial art galleries and excellent museums relating the Italian history from the Unification of Italy through until the present day.

Surrounding the town is a range of magnificent Roman ruins. Within just a few kilometres of a self catering Macerata villa is the settlement of Helvia Ricina, where you can still see the focal points of a Roman town, including a range of villas and a huge amphitheatre.

The weather was warm and sunny which I understand is usual at this time of year. The villa is hidden away on a quiet hillside close to the town of Treia a lovely small town with bars, shops and good, inexpensive restaurants. You can find everything you need a short drive away and yet feel quiet and secluded at the villa. Bedrooms were spacious and comfortable with high ceilings, parquet floors, shuttered windows and a very comfortable bed and pillows. The kitchen was equipped with everything I needed. The garden area well equipped with table and chairs perfect for eating outside or just relaxing and looking at the view. The gardens and pool are well tended and have a spectacular view of the mountains, hilltop towns and sunsets. Evening drinks while watching the sunset were a highlight of my stay.I was looking for a relaxing getaway and found it. I can recommend staying here if you want to self cater in peaceful surroundings but also want to sample some lovely meals out or visit the nearby vineyards. The villa is an excellent base to explore a relatively unknown part of Italy which retains its original character. The property was a good value for the price paid.

Le Marche is a forgotten region of Italy, peppered with medieval hill top villages to rival anything in Tuscany or Umbria. The house is very much a home where the beds are comfortable, the showers powerful and the kitchen fully kitted out even for the most discerning cook. This really is a beautiful holiday home if you are looking to recharge your batteries

The mountain views get under your skin in no time. The house is well appointed with everything you need for a trip away. There are beaches within a 40 min drive, and mountains about 30 mins away. The area is unspoilt. The owner is great.
