Ideal for large family group; Great pool;
House easily accommodates large family group, from babies to adults. Lots of space inside & outside the house. Very tranquil with no close neighbours. Rooms are well equipped, as is the outside. Pool is great, with steps being good for toddlers. Maggie & David are very welcoming, friendly, & helpful without being intrusive. Local villages worth visiting. Maggie’s recommended shops, restaurants, etc. are good.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. It was a pleasure to meet you all and we're so glad you enjoyed your holiday at Casa Gelsomino.
vacances reposantes!! Propriétaires sympas!!
La maison est réellement très sympa et notamment très bien équipée pour une maison de vacances (cuisine++). Il ne manque qu'un micro-ondes (surtout si enfant en bas âge). Les chambres et les salles de bain sont spacieuses. Les fenetres sont toutes équipées de moustiquaires et il y a des ventilateurs dans chaque chambres. La piscine est très bien entretenue et très agréable. Le seul point négatif est les moustiques qui sont très présents autour de la maison (surtout en journée).
Les propriétaires sont très agréables et très disponibles pour répondre à toutes vos questions.
La maison est isolée, vous assurant un calme certain pour vos vacances.
Thank you for taking the time to write and we are very happy that you enjoyed your time at Casa Gelsomino. We will ensure that there is a microwave in the house in future. Thank you for pointing this out. As to the mosquitoes, this year it has been a problem everywhere because the winter was very warm and the spring was very wet so perfect for mosquitoes.
C'était un plaisir de vous rencontrer et meilleurs vœux.
Great house for a family holiday
We booked the house for a family holiday. My sister and her husband and kids and my wife and I and our two. We were really pleased with our decision. The house was clean and well-equipped and the people who look after it were nice and helpful.
The house, garden and pool are all big so there was loads of space for the kids to amuse themselves which meant we could relax too. We barbecued a lot and ate outside. We managed to drag the children away from the pool a couple of times and went to the beach and also to the Frassassi Caves one day when the weather was a bit dodgy. They were fantastic. The pizzas at the local place were great and the kids loved the chocolate ones! Chocolate pizza!? Who knew.
I'd recommend the house for a family holiday and who knows, one day we might be back.
It was good to meet you and your family and we're happy you enjoyed your holiday at Casa Gelsomino. Those chocolate pizzas!!! See you again I hope.
Great family vacation at Casa Gelsomino
We enjoyed a wonderful couple of weeks in this peaceful farmhouse. The weather was lovely and on slow days we didn't get far from the pool. At other times we made it to the beach and explored some of the local hilltop towns picking up ingredients for Marchigiani meals. The kitchen is well equipped and we also enjoyed grilling. Looking forward to our next visit!
We're so pleased you enjoyed your holiday and I remember you said you loved to cook so I'm happy you discovered some of the great ingredients available nearby. Once again thanks for choosing Casa Gelsomino and we'd be delighted to welcome you again.
A lovely house and pretty surroundings. Very helpful hosts that made sure we had what we neede for the babies (high chairs etc). The pool was perfect for relaxing days in the sun. Many nice places to visit close by. I highly recommend this house!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your stay Emilia. It was lovely to meet you and we're so happy you enjoyed the house and the area.
Casa Gelsomino is 25 minutes from beaches on the Adriatic Sea, and 40 minutes from hiking trails in the Sibillini National Park.
Many historical attractions can be visited on an easy daytrip: Ascoli Piceno where Anisetta Meletti was first made in 1870 and where you can see the Quintana (jousting tournament) in August; the university town of Macerata home to the famous Sferisterio arena where there are outdoor opera performances in the summer; Urbino, the birthplace of Rafael; Gubbio in Umbria; Arezzo in Tuscany; Assisi and Perugia.
Closer to home you can visit traditional crafts people: a pasta maker in Grottazzolina, cheese makers in nearby Belmonte Piceno, potters at Montottone, and hat makers at Montappone. The area is famous for shoemaking and there are many outlets to visit including Tod's and Loriblu.
The cuisine of Le Marche is varied and delicious, with seafood from the Adriatic, pasta from Campofilone, cheeses from the mountains and wines from across the region. It's easy to find excellent meat locally raised.
