Villa Torre is an old farmhouse very close to the village of Ripatransone, in the south of the Marche region. The property extends along the side of a hill, surrounded by olive trees, vineyards and fields, with a wonderful view over the surrounding countryside, from the Adriatic Sea to the Sibillini Mountains, with the historic village of Ripatransone behind it. Ripatransone is surrounded by an ancient curtain wall and within its historic centre boasts building from the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Baroque: the Cathedral, the Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Giovanni, the Palazzo Comunale, the Palazzo del Podestà, the Mercatini Theatre.
