We had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday at Girasole in September. The apartment is excellent and just perfect for two people. Paul and Julie, the owners, were so welcoming and Paul even came rushing out with a large umbrella when we arrived in torrential rain (the first rain in months). We enjoy doing our own cooking and it was lovely to have such good, virtually new, facilities. The views from the patio are wonderful. Le Marche is a very interesting area to explore and we enjoyed trips to hilltop villages and the coast. Our favourite visit was to Urbino, a busy, bustling, University town with wonderful buildings and architecture. We are in agreement with all the fabulous reviews. Thank you Julie and Paul for the lovely hospitality.
Casa Il Gelso, is named after the magnificent Mulberry tree that shades the terrace next to the house. 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.
