The property is in excellent condition, well maintained, well equipped and tastefully decorated. The pool is large and clean without the use of chemical treatments. Gavin & Lona are welcoming accommodating & generous. The view from the property is beautiful. The property is set in an stunning garden designed and tended by Lona.
Our neighbours in the second villa were excellent company and added to the enjoyment of our break, as did Lona's homemade limoncello which is divine.
You must visit the City of Ascoli Piceno about an hours drive away - a mini Rome, beautiful. Nearby Petritoli, is well worth a visit; an attractive hillside village with restaurants and bars.
The property is in a rural setting approximately half an hours drive to the coast. We found the area very quiet, in part because we visited at the end of the season.
We chose Il Melograno as holiday accommodation for our party of 3 families - it was more than ample for our group of 13 with plenty of space inside and out. The pool is on lovely hilltop location with great views and we were most impressed with the sun beds with individual shades! No messing about with umbrellas here. The terrace was lovely for lunches and evening meals and we enjoyed using the BBQ many times. The children enjoyed the table tennis and loved seeing the peacocks roam around and looking at wildlife and fish in the ponds. Daniel and Candy are excellent hosts, on hand to help with booking restaurants and giving advice on local attractions. We has a small problem with a broken bathroom lock, which Daniel sorted out straight away for us. We enjoyed a fabulous home cooked meal during our stay, made with delicious local ingredients - a lovely evening was had by all. The house is in a great location, close to a large supermarket and smaller amenities like a chemist, deli and small takeaway restaurant which we used a few times. The nearby town Fermo is worth a visit, with a charming evening market and lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. There is a beautiful beach at Porto San Giorgio which is only a 20 min drive away. We had a wonderful stay at Il Melograno and would definitely recommend to others booking a large group holiday. Thank you very much Daniel & Candy!
