About Debby Manz
We have lived in Le Marche permanently since 2004, arriving with 3 small blonde children, to a derelict house and to the great interest of a small village's residents who then thought we were a bit odd but now have accepted and befriended us.I'm English, my husband is German and our 3 children, all born in Uk but schooled in the local schools here consider themselves to be European. We have successfully run a business here lemarchehomeservices.com for some years and take care of many holiday homes in the area. We also own a property in the nearby village of Montedinove( a must see beautiful place) where we are based in the summer months. We have seen the area wake up a little to tourism but it is still very much authentic Italy here, and there are many attractions to life here and indeed for the visitor - great beaches 1/2hour away, skiing 1 hour away, art and culture, endless charming villages and one of the days I will get my dream classic open top car to really enjoy the beautiful countryside here...
Debby Manz purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Debby Manz chose Montalto delle Marche
We drove through Tuscany( too full of foreigners and overpriced) Umbria, Emilia Romagna, Abruzzo and Le Marche...the latter left a big impression on us and looking for houses we drove past Casa Montalto to view a ruin at the bottom of the hill, asking if this property was for sale.....the position is one of the best, the house itself imposing etc etc.... a year later, after many ups and downs we moved here, sympathetically restoring the house since then...a labour of love..
What makes this Villa unique
Nestled in a hillside, what first caught our eye was the symmetry of the house, the high ceilings, the central stairway and as we opened the broken shutters the views from every window either across the valleys to the sea, or towards the mountains or up to the majestic Montalto cathedral.We could see the potential and from then on it had to this house or nothing.

Great area, great villa, great pool
We have visited many villas in Tuscany and Umbria but this was the first time in Marche. There is nothing wrong in Tuscany or Umbria but this region in Marche beats the both with the views which are spectacular and the sea is also close if you want to spend a day on a beach. This is just the place where a people should live (or at least visit). The greenery and fields of mountains, hills, valleys and their gently shapes in different natural light in the morning, during the day and specially a bit before the sun set are adorable to watch. The Casa Montalto is also the absolute place to stay. Specially we loved the spacious well equipped kitchen, lovely infinity pool and peacefull bedrooms on the first floor. We tryed to figure out if there was something which you would miss when you are on holidays but could not. There are also good choice of books, dvd's and books available as well as traditional board games. Highly recommended. And the owners are really helpful. We met only Debby but she was really kind when we arrived and booked us a couple of restaurants during the week. Extra bonus was three good behaving cats who lived by the house but not in it. They just popped out when they wanted to have some petting. We are truly going to miss the week in Casa Montalto and hope we are able to visit it some day again.
A marvelous villa in a terrific location.
We had a two-weeks stay which couldn't have been better. Debby and Thomas were helpful and kind, as was Jo. Yoga on our terrace with AnneMika, excursions to Lago di Fiacra and the little towns close by. The villa itself is exquisite and well-thought out. Everyhting is there you could possibly need or want, and no matter what it is, bed linen or the pingpong table, it's perfect. When we arrived, the jasmine and roses were blooming and it was pure aroma-therapy. The view from the swimming pool into the Marché hills is a dream.
The stay in Casa Montalto was perfect.
The house is gracious and practical and the surrounds sublime.
We will definitely be back.
Paradise on a mountainside.
A truly beautiful villa in an amazing location. The villa is on the mountain side with a view of a least three medieval villages. The owners have thought of everything - comfortable beds, superb kitchen, out-of-this-world swimming pool, books, DVD's, indoor and outdoor eating and relaxing spaces - and all this situated inside an olive grove and a fabulous garden where you can pick figs, plums and vegetables. My breakfast was coffee with fresh figs from the trees in the garden. One warning - the road to the villa from Montalto is less than one kilometer but is steep and a bit tricky - not for the faint hearted or low slung cars.
Thank you for a lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Like most Le Marche country houses the villa is on a gravel road and requires a slow drive down for a minute or so. Then you can be 'away from it all' without being too isolated.
wonderful stay for all ages
we all fell in love with this place- the great pool, amazing views, lovely veg. garden and fruit laden fig trees for our indulgence, and the location- wonderful!
House and grounds were well maintained,very comfy beds too and a great kitchen, with plenty of living space as a bonus. We have already recommended this place to a few relatives.
If perfection had a name this would be it...
Extended family had the most perfect time here. Rooms are generously proportioned, kitchen is beautifully equiped, garden is magnificently cared for and both views and pool are sublime. Happy days - we wanna all go back
Thank you for your review and so glad you and your family enjoyed our house and gardens. We strive to make Casa Montalto a truly relaxing and comfortable place for a perfect holiday away from it all.
Casa Montalto is located in Southern Le Marche, halfway between the Adriatic coast and the majestic Sibillini mountains, where you can walk, mountain bike, swim in a cool reservoir or ski in winter.
The landscape of rolling hills and medieval hill top villages is reminiscent of Tuscany and Umbria but without the tourists. This is ' the real Italy' with friendly people, good value restaurants, old fashioned piazzas and a slower pace of life. The old town of Montalto and the impressive cathedral are well worth a look around. The next village along the valley, Montedinove has a lovely, concentric old town which feels lost in time, with a pretty piazza.
'The main towns of Ascoli Piceno with its travertine architecture and Macerata are well worth a visit as is the pilgrimage site of Loreto. Other towns are Fermo and Offida. Fermo comes alive Thursday evenings throughout summer when it's beautiful main piazza hosts a flea market.
The beaches are half an hour away and truly Italian in style with sunloungers and beach cafes and fantastic seafood! The nearset beaches are Cupra Marittima and Grottamare and we have secured a 10% discount with one of the beach chalets which hires out sunloungers and umbrellas and has a super restaurant. Next to the sun lounger sections are free beaches with more space for children to run around and have safe,warm sea and sand perfect for sandcastles!
The amazing Frassassi Caves ( huge underground cavern full of amazing stalactites and stalagmites) is approx two hours drive away. Outdoor markets and shoe/clothing outlets provide shopping opportunities.
If you enjoy a glass of wine there are some wonderful cantinas locally who are happy to let you taste the wines. We can arrange for guided tours of cantinas with an English speaking guide.
Other Activities: wine tasting
