We stayed in this stunning townhouse for a few days during the annual truffle festival in Amandola. The location just off the main piazza was perfect – restaurants, cafés, supermarkets (and the exhibits in the truffle festival) were just a stone's throw away. The house is large and very comfortable, well equipped and beautifully decorated by the owner, who told us that she uses it herself when she's visiting. It really is a home from home. The weather was amazingly good, which meant we could enjoy the stunning garden – such a peaceful place right in the middle of town, with roses blooming (in November!). That was a real bonus. We found a lot to see and do around and about – the nearby towns of Sarnano and Ascoli Piceno are well worth a visit. We're not walkers, but other visitors we met said it's a walkers' Paradise, which makes sense when you see the mountains soaring into view from the bedroom window. The wifi in the house was good (not a given in rural Italy, we've found), and there's also public wifi in the piazza. We'll definitely be back – a summer trip next time, perhaps!
We had a fantastic one week stay at Villa Casa Oleandra in the hills of Gualdo. We immediately fell in love with the luxury villa and the scenery from the property is breath taking. The mountains in the distance and the farm landscape surrounding the property is beautiful and peaceful. The only sound to be heard was the sheep bells of the resident flock which was so relaxing to listen to.
The villa is immaculate and has a very high spec finish throughout. It had everything we needed for our stay making it feel like home. The rooms are nicely decorated throughout, and the kitchen is very well equipped. We cooked a few nights in the villa and found everything we needed to do this. The bedroom and en-suite facilities were fantastic and the roof terrace was lovely for an early morning coffee or evening wine.
Gail, the owner was very helpful and provided all the information we wanted. The info pack gave great recommendations of where to visit in the vicinity. We found this very helpful.
The village of Gualdo is close by with a café, restaurant and supermarket. Everyone was so friendly making you feel very welcome. Our favourite was Sarnano, a hilltop town that must be visited for the amazing scenery and authentic Italian lifestyle. The restaurants are a delight and very affordable. The locals again are so welcoming, it is defiantly worth a visit.
We are looking forward to staying here again and have already recommended the villa and area to friends and neighbours.
