Make a holiday villa in Tolentino your home away from home

If you’re looking for the ideal holiday villa in Tolentino then HomeAway can help you in your search. This picturesque town sits between the Apennines and the Adriatic, in a landscape of tall, rolling hills and tranquil farmland. Tolentino holiday homes are full of rural character – a number of them are restored stone farmhouses boasting lots of space, both indoors and in the large grounds that surround them. But modern luxuries aren’t neglected here – in your hunt for the perfect holiday home in Tolentino you could specify guest facilities like Internet, private pools or outdoor barbecues.

Things to do

-Local history. Like many of the towns in the region Tolentino has volumes of history, beautiful renaissance heritage and some must-see landmarks. Seek out the Basilica di San Nicola for its breathtaking 14th Century frescoes. A little way outside the town is the Abbey of Chiavalle di Fiastra, one of le Marche’s most beautiful monastic sites, with a blend of Romanesque and gothic architecture.

-Coast. The Adriatic is an easy drive to the east, and offers a gorgeous beaches and a variety of family-friendly resorts. One of the closest is Civitanova Marche, serving as both a stylish coastal town with an expansive coarse sandy beach and a port for the traditional fishing industry. Activities and amusements on offer here include mini-golf, tennis and a range of water sports.

-Nature. Tolentino is a few kilometres away from the northern edge of the Monti Sibillini National Park, which protects a section of Italy’s Apennine mountain range. Whether you’re a seasoned explorer or just in search of a gentle day outdoors, you’ll find hiking and biking trails here, in a remarkable landscape of formidable peaks, fast-flowing rivers and waterfalls.

-Food and drink. One of Le Marche’s best known dishes is brodetto, a soup containing a medley of fish species and seasoned differently from province to province. In the rural interior, meat is a staple, in the form of roast suckling pig, mutton and lamb, while many dishes here also feature locally grown truffles and mushrooms.

-Fermo. The handsome town of Fermo is well worth the short drive east – in centuries gone by it was the regions’s most important town, and vestiges from this time include the lavish Duomo, from the 1200s and the lovely Piazza del Popolo, a grand square enclosed by impressive secular buildings and palazzi from the 1500s.

Weather in Tolentino

The hilly scenery around Tolentino means that winter temperatures here are a little lower than on the coast a few kilometres to the east, but summers are still consistently warm. June, July, August and September all get daily highs above 25 degrees, and there’s also abundant sunshine, especially in July. Winters are moderately cool, with temperatures dropping below freezing at night in December and January, but getting up to ten degrees or more by day. Summer is the driest season – autumn, winter and spring all get around eight rainy days per month.

Travel to Tolentino

If you’re heading for your Tolentino villa from the UK, then the closest airport is Ancona Falconara (AOI), which is located about 45 minutes north of the town. There are also budget connections to a handful of other cities in Italy and Europe. To reach Tolentino from the airport you can take the A14 autostrada along the coast, before cutting inland on the SS77, which takes you all the way there. Tolentino is also on the rail-line connecting Fabriano to the northwest, with the Adriatic Railway at the Civitanova Marche on the coast. By changing at Fabriano you can also get to Tolentino by train from Rome.

Beautiful, well equipped home with good access to the Sibillini Mountains

5 of 5
This house is highly recommended. The description is completely accurate - it is well equipped in terms of kitchen and dining items, has a lovely, large, sunny lounge area and plenty of external seating areas in sunshine or shade. The showers were excellent and the beds extremely comfortable. The spa was indeed a welcome cooling off spot! The third bedroom is up a rather steep flight of stairs in the eaves on the top floor and does not have opening windows. We did not need to use this double room, but noticed it got rather hot whilst we were there (and would have been a long way from either bathroom if any nighttime trips might have been required!). Gualdo is a 20 minute walk and has a good pizzeria (also serving pasta dishes) which is popular with locals, a little bar and a small range of useful shops. As with many small hilltop towns in this part of Le Marche, the earthquakes last year have been quite damaging. We were surprised that so many historic buildings and churches were closed with no prospect of reopening any time soon. However, the scenery is stunning and the walking in the Sibillini Mountains superb. This house would be a comfortable base for anyone interested in mountain walking or exploring this beautiful area of Le Marche. Penny was a delightful and responsive host. I recommend her home highly.

wonderful family holiday in a heavenly place!

5 of 5
We had a a glorious week in Le Marche in a beautiful house which is perfectly restored. The sun shone, the view was utterly astounding and the pool was bliss in the heat of the day. This house is beautifully restored and although all we did was sleep inside because the days were spent eating on the terrace and enjoying the pool, we appreciated the space, the comfort and the way that the house and garden perfectly compliment each other. This is a peaceful part of Italy, near to a lovely town called San Ginesio where the local people welcomed us and were warm and friendly. We enjoyed our morning coffees in Bar Centrale and then the rest of our days by the pool relaxing. We headed out to the Siblini National Parc one day and enjoyed the wonderful views on the drive and our walk. Back at the house we listened to the howls of the wolves in the Parc in the evening and then the amazing sight of golden eagles sailing majestically above us. On one evening we sat until the early hours watching shooting stars. Our week could not have been more magical and our grandson who is six years old said he felt like he was in a dream it was so perfect! We shopped at local supermarkets which can be found on the major routes towards San Ginesio and just outside the walls of the town itself. We bought fresh fruit and veg and cooked wonderful meals which we ate outside every evening. If this review sounds like perfection it is because our time in this house was as close to perfect as it is possible to get. The pool is pristine and was cleaned twice during our stay and everything else was just right for our family. Waking up to laughter in the pool was a wonderful experience for us and we are grateful for the opportunity to have time out of time in a wonderful location. I am sure we will return here many times over.
