We had a wonderful week in Cessapalombo. Tiziana and Nando were very hospitable, and even laid on a delicious lunch of local specialties for our last day. The accommodation is simple, but has everything you need, and the location of the house is stunning. If you want to get away from it all, we cannot recommend this place highly enough. In the day, butterflies dance and lizards dart around the lovely pool, and by night we were serenaded by crickets and the local peregrine falcons. The Monti Sibillini National Park offers many wonderful walks and places to explore on your doorstep. Highlights included the Gole d’infernaccio (Devil’s Gorge) and medieval parade in Sarnano. We also recommend a visit (and pizza!) at the nearby Giardino Farfalle.
Really -This place is peaceful and embeded in a prestine surrounding of the italian nature of the Marche
The owner have tastliy renovated the old farmhouse and managed to
maintain the original style.
We were very happy to have found such a house for 5 of us
with everything you need to enjoy a "simple" life for 2 weeks.
The well equipped kitchen for cooking sessions, a porch to eat outside
in the shade, a semi-open room to sleep outside in warm nights
(in our case only used for our morning Yoga with a great view into the
You may stay the whole day reading, sun bathing or playing table tennis near the house, while the kids may take care of the dog for a walk, brush the horse or feed the funny chicken or
cats. Nearby you will find great local food (Agro Tourismo) of the Marche or nice restaurants. In any case you will need a car. There is no traffic at all, so you may enjoy cycling, but is will be tough and more for the early birds in summer time. For hiking or swimming you may enter the nearby National Park (Monti Sibillini) with impressing nature and a wonderful close moutain lake (trout fishing before 1.5. or after 15.9.). Camerino, Tolentino, Matelica, San Severino.. all these villages offer festivals, markets and pittoresques views (bring your water colors...). You may also visit Assisi (Umbria) or to go for a swim to the Adria coast (chalk cliffs south of Ancona or sand beaches - but drive will be min. 1 hours +).
Kirsty and John live next door and are very quiet and reluctant. They will help you at anytime and give you great suggestions - depending on weather and saison.
Summarizing, the nice house is great for a couple as well as for a family up to 5 persons, who like to enjoy life in a peacefull surrounding.
A great place, even after having seen so many places in Italy, the experience of a pure Marche - simple, unspoiled and true with very kind locals and great hosts is unforgetable.
Finally we loped and returned home - revitalized after this stay.
