Farmhouse with stunning views In rural location but walking distance to village
We live in Cambridge UK with our son who was born in the year 2000. We both work but like to travel as much as possible and we first visited Italy in 2003. We came across Le Marche whilst looking for an unspoilt area in which to buy a property.
Diane purchased this House in 2006
Why Diane chose Montalto delle Marche
Our first holiday in Italy was to Tuscany and it was here that we decided we wanted to buy a house for restoration. We looked around a few areas and eventually decided on Le Marche because it wasn't too developed and had great variety such as coast, mountains and beautiful countryside.
What makes this House unique
The main reason we chose the house is because it is private but situated a few minutes walk from the local village and it has the most amazing views if the Sibilini Mountains. There is the village church in the distance on one side and vineyards on the other. The main town is only 5 minutes drive away and the coast 30 minutes. We think it has the best of both worlds without being too remote. Please take a look at the video.
We may allow single well behaved dogs

Fantastic location and stunning area
Had a terrific time. The house is near a village but in a peaceful area. House manager very helpful, great restaurant a short walk away. Coast and mountains a short drive. All in all a great holiday!
Lovely well equipped villa with great views.
Villa is located in beautiful surroundings with mountain views. Overall my stay was very comfortable, with 3 good size bedrooms, great kitchen, living room and lots of outdoor space and relaxing areas. Easy access to a number of other villages for days out. Would recommend and look forward to my next visit!
The location of this villa is lovely as it's not too far from the village. The outside area is particular beautiful and overall it gives you a relaxing time but there's plenty to see and do in the area. Not too touristy and still quite cheap.
We had a lovely two weeks here in September. The views are so pretty from the pool area and main bedroom. To see snow on the mountain tops and vineyards right next to the property with undulating countryside all around, while hearing the church bells ring, made it a very special spot. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen facilities fulfilled everything we needed. The configuration of one bathroom downstairs was unusual but didn't cause us problems, although if you struggle with stairs it might not be helpful.
The Agriturismo Due Pini that is literally next door was such a highlight of our holiday that we went twice to experience Maria cooking up a storm,amazing value! Also in the village which is a nice 15 minute walk away has a lovely pizzeria that we used four times including their take away pizzas. The village shop catered for all our needs too. The nearest bigger town Montalto delle Marche has a good market on Wednesdays and a few cafe's for morning cappuccino and cornetto de crema. Many hilltop villages to explore and a day trip into the mountains is worthwhile. One day we hope to return.
Tolles Haus, sehr schön gepflegt, ideal für einen Aufenthalt mit Kindern. In 30 Minuten ist man in Grottamare am Strand. Der Pool ist von außen kaum einsehbar. Sehr gute Betreuung durch die Agentur. Jederzeit gerne wieder!
Amazing views, lovely property, fantastic holiday
The location of the villa is perfect in that it's walking distance to a village, with local restaurants, yet in a peaceful location with amazing views. It is also not too far to drive to the beach or mountains for the day. The villa is well equipped and the house manger is very helpful. We loved getting to know this unspoilt, untouristy area.
Thank you so much for your great review. We really appreciate that you took time to do this and are pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our house.
