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.
Arrival at the Villa prompts a moment's pause to soak in the idyllic location of a very private setting. The nearest Town is just a 10 minute drive away, but the villa is on a tranquil hill with great views of the countryside and only the sounds of birds and cicadas.
The house itself is well equipped and the pool and garden are well looked after.
There was a welcome hamper in the kitchen when we arrived and the host was easily contactable throughout our stay and sorted out a minor issue with the water straight away.
The house and garden were spacious enough to cater for 5 adults and two children, especially as the layout of the house allows for a level of privacy between bedrooms.
The wildlife is especially great, including fireflies, cicadas and swallows in the garden; and hares, sheep, wild boars and a peacock on the surrounding hills.
Would definitely recommended this place to anyone wanting to experience the real Italy.
