About Zoe Anderson
We're a family from London, UK who decided it would be fun to own our own holiday home after getting fed up renting sub-standard properties overseas. We've always loved Italy and fell in love with Le Marche for its charming purity.
Zoe Anderson purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Zoe Anderson chose Province of Macerata
We wanted a home from home so we've done our best to make everything cosy, comfortable or essential for holiday fun. We searched high and low for somewhere that was easy to reach. We wanted our own private space but didn't want to be too cut off from civilisation and sought shops, bars and restaurants all within easy reach. As we use the property all year round we can enjoy the mountains, beach and long country strolls any time the mood takes us.
What makes this Villa unique
We fell in love with the house instantly because it was so typical of the area. Even before the house was renovated when we had no running water and windows were a distant dream we just loved gazing through the pine trees, over the fields to the distant mountains.

Lovely, comfortable holiday home.
Set in a valley in a very rural location, the house is very well equipped. Spent many hours sitting around the large kitchen table whilst one of us would be preparing dinner. Local food and wine very good. Unfortunately couldn't avail ourselves of sitting outside after late afternoon as the Mosquitos were a problem, despite Jungle formula and burners. The owners also provided a drawer of repellant stuff. Thank you.
Swimming pool was lovely. All regularly attended to.
House also kept very clean.
Wine, milk and some food was awaiting our arrival..again many thanks.
Housekeeper was excellent and responded to queries immediately.
Only slight quibble would be that the sheets on the beds were duvet covers, so not really sufficient to cover comfortably on the occasional cooler night and the mattress protectors need washing between guests.
There was always lots of hot water..it never ran out, despite being such a large group.
Lovely holiday..many thanks for sharing your ' away home '
Thank you for the 5 star review and I'll pass on your recommendations to the lovely Maja.
Beautiful, family friendly country house
Casa Lucciola is the perfect house for families. The location is peaceful, interiors elegant and comfortable, grounds large and well equipped.
We loved the children's room with all the toys and books (our children were in heaven discovering the hampers full of brio, Lego, K' next and dolls) but the huge DVD library, pool and trampoline ensured that there was always something to do.
There are some wonderful restaurants in the area and the house book was really useful. The owners clearly love this house and it is very well maintained - not your usual holiday let.
Thank you so much for a blissful holiday.
Idyllic location and house.....
I cried when we left....what an amazing home you have in an incredible place. We will definitely be back.....I think I've found where I'd like to retire to. Mogliano and the area around are just beautiful...what a discovery.
Beautiful, peaceful and fireflies to boot
The whole experience of Casa Lucciola is incredible. Lying by the pool, surrounded by the most beautiful scenery around is very relaxing. If you want to be more adventurous there is the lake which is breathtaking and the beach which is great for people watching. My favourite thing is sitting in the little house after dinner with your mates, the candles lit and a glass of fizzy pop in hand (or rose frizzante as the locals call it).
A truly stunning property surrounded by breathtaking beauty, fields of sunflowers and real life Renaissance paintings everywhere you look!
The interior of Casa Lucciola is both stylish, comfortable, well equipped and has a very welcoming feel. As do the beautiful grounds where you can take yourself off for a swing in the hammocks beneath the fig trees, retreat to an exquisite little sun house or just lounge poolside admiring the ancient oaks and surrounding beauty.
There's lots to explore (if you can tear yourself away!) including the most breathtaking mineral lake "Lake Fiastra", a highlight for us and probably the best swim ever. Great beaches, plenty of historical treasures including the church neighbouring Casa Lucciola, fantastic family run trattorias and Mogliano's ice cream parlour was a regular haunt.
An authentic, relaxing, fun Italian holiday, we can't wait to return.
The house was beautiful, the inside and outside is stunning. I instantly felt at home, everything I needed was there and there were no problems. I loved eating in the outside area, swinging on the hammocks at nighttime with fireflies. Lovedddd the pool too! My favourite place that we went was Lake Fiastra which is honestly incredible.
Casa Lucciola is on a flat farm road surrounded by fields with distant views of the Sibillini Mountains. It’s a five minute drive from the pretty town of Mogliano, near Macerata. Here you'll find plenty of charm, local shops, cafe bars, restaurants and a weekly market. The town offers great views of Le Marche best enjoyed with an ice cream from the local gelateria. The house is in a great location for exploring this beautiful part of central Italy. Some of our favourite things to see and do are:
The beaches and the view over the Adriatic from Monte Conero
Feasting on delicious seafood after a day at the beach at Porto San Giorgio
Swimming in crystal clear waters and hiring canoes in Lake Fiastra
Hiking, skiing or mountain biking in the Sibillini Mountains
Outdoor opera at Sferisterio, Macerata
Designer outlet shopping
Just wandering though the charming old towns
Visiting village festivals, vineyards and markets
Long lunches with great food and wine
