Sun-kissed from dawn til dusk, this beautifully restored country farmhouse is situated just outside the Sibillini National Park. The house which lies close to the charming village of Colmurano sleeps up to 10 people, with 3 double rooms, 2 twin bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Any of the rooms may be expanded with another single bed which means the full capacity is 13. There is a large fully-fitted kitchen with traditional fireplace. There is also a spacious garage for games (table tennis etc.) The 50 cm thick walls keep the house cool in summer and warm in winter. The outdoor pool has wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.
There are also fly screens on all the bedroom windows, to allow the almost permanent breeze to keep things cool!

Colmurano is characteristic of this wonderfully hilly area. Chosen by the ancient Romans as a place of rest, many archaeological places are still being discovered in nearby Urbisaglia. During the summer there are numerous artistic activities and culinary festivals (esp. the International Street Festival in July, contact owner for website link ). For those who enjoy genuine gastronomic flavours of the land, there are plenty of opportunities to try them with the numerous restaurants and trattorie, and the festivals of the surrounding towns and villages, and the cellars where the art of wine-making respects all the charisma and tradition of the grape harvest of old.
The location of the house allows you to plan cultural day trips. From Colmurano just 30 minutes by car will get you to the mountains (Sarnano- thermal baths and ski centre during winter), or to the sea (Civitanova - Conero Coast ). The Abbey of Fiastra (5 minutes away) lies in a Nature Reserve on the edge of a large forest (please, contact owner for more information) . At Urbisaglia (also 5 minutes) lies the Archaeological Park of Urbs Salvia, with its Roman ampitheatre, open theatre, temple and aqueduct. 20 minutes away is the beautiful city of Macerata, with its annual open air Opera festival (contact owner for link). Other places of interest: Caves of Frasassi, Recanati (birth city of G. Leopardi) Loreto, Camerino Caldarola, Assisi.
My family (3 generations, including 4 children under 10) have just spent 3 blissful weeks here. The house is great, well equipped and maintained, and the pool is lovely with breathtaking panoramic views.
Nicola the owner and his family, and Gabriel the manager, were fantastic. They were incredibly helpful, nothing was too much for them.
Colmurano, and neighbouring Urbisaglia, are very close and both have little Supermarkets, Bakeries, Butchers, Groceries and some really nice restaurants, bars, cafes and Gelateria.
I cannot recommend Casa Dei Monte, Colmurano and Le Marche more highly. It is a truly wonderful part of Italy!
We had a lovely time in villa dei Monti. Beautifull scenery, clean, everything there that you need. We can recommend this place!
Everything is just as you see in the pictures, and Nicola takes care that there's everything you need. The house is clean and equipped with all the modern utilities, and the view from the pool is just stunning. There is much to see near Colmurano, I wish we'd stay for more than just one week! Will definitely come again!
Our extended family of 10 met up for a shared week in this wonderful property.The property was clean and maintained beautifully. There was a generous welcome pack and plenty of information about the surrounding area and events. There are inside and outside eating areas which we could all eat at together comfortably. The ground floor bedroom and bathroom made it perfect for our grandparents and the upstaris rooms suited the other two families perfectly. We have often rented properties and have never been to such a well appointed and resourced house. The week was abnormally hot for Italy which made the pool a life saver and every one spent a lot of time this lovely pool. When drying off there is a covered area right by the pool to provide essential shade. My teenage boys loved the cool basement with the table tennis and table football and every one enjoyed these. There were wonderful views from the property.This is a wonderful area not too busy with tourists with the most wonderful hidden medieval towns, many of which have sagras (festivals) during August. Colmurrano is a small town which hs a good bread shop, grocery store, green grocers and pizza restaurant. We would not hesitate to return and would recommend it unreservedly.
Our family consisting of two boys, 8 and 5, their parents and their four grandparents spent a week in June in Casa dei Monti. Having read the description of the house and its environment we had very high expectations. It turned out that everything was correctly described; the house was very well equipped, very clean and tasteful, the area beautiful and the owner very helpful and friendly. We loved the view from the pool area, the gazebo with its shade, the dining areas inside and outside the house, the kitchen, the spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, the tasty local wine (Saputi), the many pretty towns and villages close by, the sea and the fantastic mountains, which were both less than an hour away.
The boys loved the pool which was kept very clean with continuous fresh water. For the adults we recommend an early morning walk to Colmurano or to Ripe San Ginesio (if you are fit) for example. Urbisaglio, San Ginesio, Sarnano, Tolentino, Macerata, Monti Sibellini with Castellúccio and Civitanova are all worth a visit. Best of all was the wonderful view of the green hills all around, the mountains far away in one direction and the sea in the other. We would love to go back.
Our three generation family of 10 thoroughly enjoyed this house and the beautiful countryside and historic villages of Le Marche and within half an hours drive from the coast. The description of the house was accurate. The house was well equipped, well maintained and very clean. The owner and agent were most helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending it.
Casa Dei Monti is situated just outside the beautiful medieval walled town of Colmurano, which lies halfway between the Sibillini mountains and the Adriatic coast. The elevated position of the house allows stunning views of the surrounding countryside. It has unequalled views over the mountains, rolling hills, valleys and hill towns in the area, and the Adriatic.
The house is easily accessible by the A14 motorway.
