About the property

This is a lovely house which has been modernised very well. It is very well equipped. As well as being excellent throughout inside, Stefano has managed to create good external areas to sit; one of them, on the roof, with great views of the countryside around. The house was extremely clean, thanks to a hard-working lady who lives nearby and visits weekly to clean.The house is in a quiet cul-de-sac at the top of a steep hill. Gabicce Monte is small but has several good eating places around its square, as well as good views of the resorts below.

Gabicce Monte is also an excellent base for exploring the area by car. Nice excursions including Urbino, Ravenna, Rimini, Pesaro, San Marino, Gradara, Cattolica, Riccione and Misano.

Why Stefano & Cristina chose Gabicce Monte

The ancient fishermen's house, located at the highest point of Gabicce Monte, has been turned into a tourist accommodation. The restoration of this house is the result of an attentive research aiming at conveying feelings of authenticity and hospitality. The oak beams, the terracotta hollow flat tiles of ceilings and floors, the fireplace, the marble table and the art nouveau-style bed of the two-floor rooms create the typical cosy atmosphere of peace of mind that Gabicce Monte and San Bartolo park inspire.

Great place to stay and host beyond compare

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Cass Marola, a home with history and charm on the top of Gabbice Monte. It has a lovely roof top terrace with beautiful views. The bed was comfortable, everything was clean and well cared for, and the kitchen was extremely well-equipped and stocked with everything we needed. Stefano and his daughter were the best hosts, even providing us with fruit, wine and groceries on our arrival! They also went the extra mile by providing us with tips on things to see and do, and emailing us recipes. We've never seen this attention to detail and level of service in any of the places we have stayed at before. Highly recommended!

A lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Dear Stefano and family, Thank you for a lovely stay in your charming and traditional cottage. We stayed there for three nights with our three children and agree with all of the previous reviews. We enjoyed the village and the local beaches and love the Marché region most of all in Italy. We slept well and appreciated your generosity! Kind regards from the Caspari family, Norway.

A wonderful, clean and peaceful apartment with huge ceiling terrace(s) and great view

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful, clean and peaceful apartment in Gabicce Monte with huge ceiling terrace(s) and great view.

In the kitchen there are all the needed equipment (and even more) what you could hope for. It was also a big plus to have a modern induction stove instead of having a gas stove.

As a welcoming gesture, there were plenty of wine and food (bread, desserts, tomatos, cheese, paninis, fruits, milk, water, olive oil, butter, salad, pastas, tea, coffee) just waiting to be used freely without any extra cost during our vacation. This was the first time than somebody has really put this kind of effort just to make quests enjoy and relax from their arrival onwards.

Other rooms, toilette and shower are in great condition. The apartment is very clean and an elderly woman from the next house also cleaned the apartment once during our 7 days stay.

This apartment has something special: huge ceiling terrace(s), in which you have the 360 degree view to the mountains, the Adriatic Sea etc. Really wonderful place just to enjoy about the view, the wines, reading etc.

Stefano and his family were extra ordinary helpful from the moment we reserved the apartment and during and after our vacation. We got invaluable information and advices which helped us in planning our vacation in Marche, highly appreciated. Words cannot express our gratitude, a million thanks to Stefano and to whole Cecchini family. Hopefully we are able to return someday to this wonderful area and Casa Marola.

Tips: Car recommended for travelling in Marche.

Parking in front of the apartment or nearby. Note that the streets are very narrow, do not even try to drive up to the apartment with a bigger car. If all the nearby places are occupied you need to reverse downwards in narrow streets which is not easy. We had rented Fiat 500L and even that was about the max size for narrow streets.

Great restaurants nearby (eg. Posillipo, fantastic sunset view, reservation recommended in summer).

Bigger food shops (eg. Conad) with versatile options is in Gabicce Mare, address VIA ALDO MORO 4. A smaller food shop in Gabicce Monte as well.

Self-service laundry: (Lavanderie Self Service Easy Wash) in Via Panoramica 12 in Gabicce Mare, it’s inexpensive (open from 6-24 ).

Casa Marola è un appartamento eccelente. La nostra vacanza è stata molto rilassante e soleggiata. Le terrazze sono un paradiso quando c´è l´afa.

Grazie mille per Stefano e la famiglia Cecchini per le ottime condizioni!

Owner's Response: É stato un piacere ospitarvi e che abbiate potuto godere del fresco del terrazzo per ripararvi dal caldo che avete trovato. Tanto più per voi che siete venuti dalla Finlandia. Ci auguriamo di potervi nuovamente incontrare semmai nel vostro Paese. It was a pleasure to host you and you were able to enjoy the cool of the terrace to protect you from the heat that you have found. So much more for you who have come from Finland. We hope to meet again, if anything, in your Country. Stefano & Cristina.

Great relaxing stay next to the Adriatic

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a place! I really just can't say enough about both Casa Marola and it's owner Stefano. Originally my husband and I just booked two nights, but after keeping up a pretty exhausting pace we decided to slow down and stay an additional two nights. Stefano was such a gracious and accommodating host. He had everything for us to make a meal (actually a few meals), including wine! Coffee and a plethora of breakfast goodies. The house was so clean and obviously well maintained. The roof deck is something special, perfect for late afternoon drinks and taking in the scenery. Also, this house is a great base for exploring the area. Stefano was also excellent at giving us suggestions of things to do, his love of the area is obvious and something we appreciated greatly. It had us exploring things that we otherwise would not have found. Great list of all the business you would need in the area. My only recommendation to future travelers is if you are taking a car - travel compact! Our rental car company graciously "upgraded" us (meaning they no longer had any compact cars left by the time we got there) to a larger vehicle and I can tell you that Gabicce Monte is definitely a town not equipped for larger vehicles. Although honestly, we made it work, there is plenty of parking a very short walk away in town if the narrow roads make you nervous. I would recommend this property in a heartbeat and can't wait to return. Do yourselves a favor and take a stroll down to Osteria del Sorriso, some of the best seafood I have ever had, and practically a stones throw from Casa Marola. Thank you Stefano for everything.

Owner's Response: Happy to have met you. It was for us a great satisfaction that you have decided to extend your stay. You live in the US, you were coming from Rome and you had to go at Venice, giants for tourists transatlantic, yet you enjoyed this part of Italy. Thanks for the poetry by Walt Whitman. A presto. Stefano e Cristina

History Remembered and Local Visiting

  • 5 of 5

I am not sure where to start on this review!

We were into the 2nd week of our Italian vacation and I finally had my Italian driving in pretty good order.

The directions to get to Casa Monte were spot on! When we got into Gabicce Monte and looked up the cobblestone road/drive I was thinking "now this will be a challenge"! It was fun! Up to the top, turn right and there was the exact picture we were waiting to see!

Stefano came out of the door to meet us. ( We were an hour early)

It was easy to see he was very pleased with the restoration he had done on the home!

First, there was wine both in the fridge and on the counter, a fruit basket on the table, an assortment of drinks , bread, local pastry etc, etc, etc. much more than ever expected! It was greatly appreciated and we put most of it to good use!

He is also proud of his family! Pictures on the wall showed older times of his grandfather at work, a group photo of families from the area and more. We took pictures of each of them.

The home is all you could want or need. It will fit a family of 4 easily and there was only my wife and I.

We enjoyed sitting on the back deck where in fact, Stefano has fresh herbs growing for those who are doing their own cooking.

It is a fabulous spot that can easily be used as a jumping off point to visit the surrounding area. This is what we did. Even with six days we could not possibly see it all!

We had dinner just around the corner at Osteria del Sorriso which was awesome! We had an appetizer and then I had rabbit and my wife had pasta with pesto. The owners were warm and greeted us at the door!

Everyone we met in the area were very friendly and welcoming. Brush up on your small Italian greetings. Though this was not a big issue as smiles, waves and gestures are universal!

Stefano kept in touch by emails, (wifi worked great) offering suggestions on places to visit as well as to see if there was anything we needed. And, when our departure was set for 0700h, Stefano arrived the evening before with a gift of a local traditional treat vacuum sealed ready for travel.

I think we picked the perfect time of the year to visit as it was quiet with very few tourists. Though I hear summers are spectulnar and fun filled in this area.

Do not miss the chance to stay here!!!
