About Jan Tvedt
My late wife and I bought the house in December 2011. I live just south of Oslo and work as a civil servant. I still have some years before retirement and I'll be letting the house part of the holiday season until I will be able to spend more of my time there.
Jan Tvedt purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Jan Tvedt chose Tolentino
After having spent our summer holidays in Tuscany for nearly twenty years,we wanted to try something new and decided to spend our 2011 holiday in Le Marche. We instantly loved the area, the landscape and the quietness. With the help of a good real estate agent, we looked at quite a few properties. When we finally came to Casa Rafaelle, we knew it was perfect for us, the size, the very quiet position and the magnificent views.
What makes this Villa unique
The olive grove with the wild flowers is beautiful. There is a fabulous view from every window, three out door terraces and a lovely pool. The trees at the outskirts of the land makes one feel quite secluded. The house was built from a ruin in 2003 and has been very well taken care of by the previous owners.

Claudia very helpful.
Very charming and peaceful with superb views
This is a clean, well-maintained restoration in a particularly peaceful area. The large garden is beautifully laid out with the sloping part comprising an olive grove. The flat part of the garden is laid to lawn and at the bottom of the lawn is the swimming pool. Owner, Jan, provided us with very good, detailed instructions of how to get there and nothing was too much trouble for housekeeper, Claudia.
There is plenty to see and do in the area but you do need to take the car out to get to the shops. There are good restaurants in the local towns, in particular Terra Nostra in San Ginesio (very good pizza); Osteria d'Este in Tolentino (innovative) and Le Logge in Urbisaglia (closest thing to Italian nouvelle cuisine I've seen).
If you want a quiet, relaxing time and really want to get away from it all, this is just the thing. I came back more relaxed than any time I can remember. The views from the house are to die for.
