About Rupert

Hi, We - Lynne and I - are a retired couple who live in London. I was a university lecturer in design and restoring our Italian house was a project we worked on for several years to make it into a family home in the sun.

Rupert purchased this villa in 2003

Why Rupert chose Montalto delle Marche

We viewed well over 30 properties when we were looking for a holiday home and when we found casa Belle Fonte we knew it was by far the best we had seen and we decided to buy straightway. The views are unmatched and the setting is perfect, just a 10 minute walk to town and yet, as it is at the end of a 300 metre long avenue, completely secluded.

What makes this villa unique

As mentioned above the key to the magic of CBF is the location, with views to the sea across stunning countryside we know of no property with such a superb setting. The other thing that makes CBF special is the well tended and mature gardens that surround the property on all sides.

Stilvolles gemütliches großes Landhaus

  • 5 of 5

Der gepflegte große Garten mit Kräutern und Blumen geht in die wilde Natur über. Wunderbare Schmetterlinge flattern dort herum und die Aussicht ist sehr ansprechend, besonders vom Malatelier aus, wo es auch ein Badezimmer „im Freien“ gibt. Es gibt dort auch ein Bett, allerdings denke ich dass es zum Schlafen ziemlich heiß ist. Von dort sieht man die zahlreichen Hügel mit Wein und Olivenbäumen sowie alte Steindörfer. Die Lage ist absolut ruhig ohne unmittelbarer Nachbarn. Das Haus wurde liebevoll restauriert und besticht durch persönliche Kunstwerke und besondere Möbelstücke gemischt mit ländlichem gemütlichen Stil. Manches ist nicht ganz neu, aber das gehört zum Charme. Die Zimmer und die Terrassen entsprechen ganz den Fotos. Die Küche ist schön groß und gut ausgestattet, Kräuter wachsen gleich davor! Wir haben uns dort „wie zu Hause“ gefühlt. Alles war geräumig genug für 9 Personen. Wir hatten Spaß im großen Pool und im Kino-Raum. Den Kindern gefiel das große Baumhaus- es ist wirklich toll, allerdings nur für größere Kinder geeignet, jüngere brauchen Begleitung wegen der Zugangs. Im Haus befanden sich genug Bettwäsche und Handtücher, sowie Seifen, Waschmittel, Spülmittel usw. Ganze Grundausstattung und mehr vorhanden. Auf der Wiese vorm Haus kann man Federball und dergleichen spielen. Radfahren ist nur bedingt möglich, der Weg ins Dorf ist abgesehen von flachen 300 Metern zu steil. Die ganze Gegend ist sehr hügelig, also nur für sehr sportliche Radfahrer geeignet. Das Dorf ist einfach aber sehenswert. In der Gegend, die uns sehr gefiel, gibt es wenig Touristen. Schöne Dörfer, ruhiger Strand, alles ziemlich entspannt und sehr günstig. Die Straßen sind allerdings sehr kurvig und so braucht es schon mal etwas länger- jedoch immer mit herrlicher Aussicht als Belohnung. Der Besitzer war sehr freundlich und hat immer prompt geantwortet. Seine Tipps sind empfehlenswert, seine Beschreibungen korrekt. Die Kaution wurde alsbald zurück gezahlt. Wir hatten einen wirklich feinen erholsamen Urlaub, der ziemlich unseren Erwartungen entsprach. Für Teenager, die Disco oder Lokale wünschen, etwas abseits vom Schuss. Für Ruhe suchende, die sich mit kleiner Bar, Café, Tante Emma-Laden und Pizzeria sowie traumhafter Landschaft begnügen, optimal!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review, we are pleased you and your family enjoyed the house, gardens, the tree house and the region. I know you did not use the Studio as a bedroom but in fact as the room is in the shade most of the day and it has a roof window it is not too warm for sleeping and as you say the views of the sunrise over the sea can be spectacular.

Shopping

There is a lively local market every Wednesday morning in Montalto from 8:30 to 12:00 ish. Most supplies can be brought locally, Montalto has:

· 2 Greengrocers

· Small (secret!) supermarket

· 4 bars

· Post office – with working ATM

· Chemist

· Art goods, maps and postcard shop (also does photocopying)

· Fresh pasta shop(great)

· Pastry shop (will bake you a cake to order)

· Hardware store(well stocked – batteries etc)

· 2 butchers (best is on the main road out of town, amazing own prosciutto, sells cheese) · Take-away pizza (not open evenings)

· Bank – ATM currently not accepting UK cards

· Museum (Paple ceremonial costumes)

· Petrol station (lovely chap, please use)

· Garage (very good, but hope you don't need it)

Just 5 minutes drive from Montalto there is a well-stocked small COAL (pronounced “co-al”) supermarket in Patrignone. Turn left at the top of the gravel road, drive down the hill and round a few hairpins until you get to the junction marked “Cossignano” straight on, “Castignano” to the right. Take the right turn and follow the road round the bends for half a kilometre, looking out for the “Coal” sign on the right. You need to go to the chemist for medicines – aspirin etc.

Note the Italian shopping times – shops will open around 8:30 and close 12:30 ish. They don’t open again until around 4:00 until 7:00-8:00. Some shops close Thursday pm. The greengrocer and petrol station are open Sunday morning in the summer.

Restaurants

• Quatro Vento pizzeria in Montalto (closed Monday)

• Castello de Marte: Consangano: (15 minutes) an excellent restaurant in the bar in centre of

the old town – good for veggies!

• The Hotel del Duca: Montedinove: (5 minutes drive) has a fine restaurant, great steaks

• Due Pine: Agrotouismo in Patrignone: (5 minutes drive, a couple of bends after Coal

supermarket) quantity over quality

• Ortezzano: (15 minutes) In the centre of town are two good restaurants. On the main road

at the bottom of the hill is a pizzeria – Mama Rosa, the only one locally open on Mondays.

(not the best)

Beach

• The pleasant seaside town of Grottammare offers the rare luxury of a free beach in an Italian seaside town, just 30 minutes drive from the house.

Mountains

• The Sibillini National Park begins 35-minute drive west. Towns

• Offida, with a spectacular eleventh century church – now museum – perched on an outcrop of rock with a sheer drop on three sides, 15 mins

• The regional capital is the medieval city of Ascoli Picena, 30 mins

• Fermo evening flea market winding through the cobbled inclines (summer Thursday nights,

40 mins)

• San Benedetto has an interesting fishing harbour with excellent seafood restaurants and

seafood stalls as well as a vast food and clothing market (35 minutes Tuesday and Friday

mornings).

• Ripatransone perched high on a hilltop offers some of the most spectacular views in the

region and boasts the narrowest lane in all Italy, 25 mins

• Montefalcone having said that Ripatransone has the best views, visitors to this small town

perched precariously on the edge of a mountain might well argue, and then there is the

castle with its lookout tower, 25 mins

• Macerata hosts the world famous open-air opera in a Roman amphitheatre, 60 mins
