About the property

Comfortable and stylish Farmhouse, with private pool and fantastic views

Villa Staffieri has been renovated and restored to bring together both comfort and style, while at the same time celebrating the beautiful architecture of Italian stone farmhouses. Set on the edge of a hilltop village, flanked by vineyards of the region's famous Verdicchio grapes, the house enjoys a rural setting with amenities such as Pizzeria, Bar & Shop, only a 5mins walk away. The large 14m x 5m pool set in a southern position offers superb views of the surrounding area. Villa Staffieri has been created to provide you with the ultimate summer holiday rental with its high standards of comfort and style. Enjoy self-catering at its best with its contemporary, well-equipped kitchen. Deep leather sofas and open fire make lounging compulsory in the spacious lounge and 4 beautifully appointed bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, create the perfect end to wonderful days.

Additional activities:: Beaches: Le Marche lies on the eastern side of central Italy, with fabulous blue-flag beaches running along the clear Adriatic Sea. In true Italian style, take a sun lounger for the day at nearby Senigalia, Numana or Sirolo.

Wine tours and tasting sessions: Take advantage of this wonderful wine region by enjoying a tour and tasting session at one of the many local vineyards. Our favourite is a small 'family-run' business whose wines have recently made their mark on the world wine stage. Some of their Verdicchio grapes come from the vineyards next to our garden.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic Week in Castelplanio; Lovely Villa; Highly Recommended

We had a great time here. The owners and the local lady who looks after the property were great: helpful and friendly. The villa is everything it looks in the pictures - clean and extremely well thought through. The kids loved the pool.

We spent a chilled week here between trips to Rome and Venice. Very laidback - even when the European street luge and skateboard championship came to Castelplanio.

Very highly recommended.

The ideal place for a family reunion and holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa has everything you could wish for when it comes to comfort, relaxation - and beauty. The view of the surrounding hills is stunning.

All of us, including eight-week-old Molly, enjoyed every second of our stay. Although we were seven grown-ups there was space enough for everybody, thanks to the house being so big and well planned.

Some of us started our day with a brisk early-morning walk up the steep hill to the village and the road out towards Poggio San Marcello. Before going back we took turns to visit the local baker’s, Il piccolo forno, and purchase our daily bread.

After a swim in the lovely pool – it is 15 metres long and allows you to stretch out in good strokes – and a long breakfast out in the pergola we spent a few hours basking in the sun, planning our day.

There are so many nice places to visit – the beach in Sirolo is a must, the caves in Frassasi well worth a visit, all the surrounding villages equally charming and vineyards just round the corner – that you will never be at a loss what to do.

Since we wanted little Molly to enjoy her very first holiday reasonably peacfully we skipped the restaurants in the evenings and prepared our own food inspired by the tempting ingredients we found at either the supermarket down the road in Macine or at the hipermercato in Jesi. And considering the amount of wine and water that was consumed with the meals, the wine cooler was heaven-sent!

One evening we had take-away pizzas from the local pizzeria up the hill, a fully recommendable treat.

The villa’s location in the very heart of rural Italy ensures that your stay will be a memorable one. Simon and Gail, the friendly owners, and Julia, the housekeeper welcoming you on arrival, will do everything within their power to meet your wishes.

Owner's Response: It’s great to hear about some of your holiday at our Villa. I am pleased you have sampled some of the activities in the area. Molly would have been a great asset to have in any restaurant in the area as all Italian’s love children as our experience has been with Lorenzo, he used to get a show round the restaurant and all the staff would want to pick him up and rock him slowly back and forward. I hope you can visit again and visit the water park, Loreto, many restaurants and other blue flag beaches serving great seafood. Hope to see you again

Faboulous property, great location

  • 5 of 5

Greatly enjoyed our two weeks at this property. Four bedrooms each with its own en suite bathroom a real bonus. Well appointed kitchen, two fridges and a wine bar. Never got tired of the views. Owner very responsive to queries and feedback. As a cyclist loved the terrain, endless climbs and descents with stunning views at literally every turn.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review and kind words in our visitors book. You certainly packed in quite a bit during your stay and we hope you come back for more wonderful Ice cream, special restaurants and super views very soon. I've not braved the cycling in the area, but you see so many cyclists, riding up and down the rolling hills or Le Marche. It looks like great fun. All the best.

Outstanding family villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a villa that gets the important things right. Comfortable bedrooms each with its own bathroom and with air conditioning. Properly equipped kitchen: things like sharp cooking knives and pans you can actually cook with are important on holiday. Sensibly sized swimming pool which allows you to swim rather than take on stroke and be at the other end. Good outside space for those who prefer the shade. Tip top views. Easy access to local village and plenty of options for supermarket shopping within 15 mins. Generously stocked essentials by the villa owners, as well as good supply of books and games. Proper welcome from those looking after the house for the owners, both of whom spoke excellent English and who would have sorted out any problems, had there been any. Magnificently good value eating which puts Provence and Tuscany to shame. We could not recommend this villa highly enough.

We had a perfect week in June with our three sons. The villa is spacious and has everything one could need. The pool is large and the view down the valley to die for. The peeling of the church bells and fire flies at night were very special. We ventured to the beach at Senigallia and visited the Grotte di Frasassi. The Grotte was particularly impressive and only a 20 minute drive away. The local pizzeria, a short walk, was visited three times. Thankfully it is down hill coming back. I would love to come back.

Very nice villa and local area

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a week's stay at Villa Staffieri.

We were very pleased with the house, which is spacious and very well equipped. The pool is a good size with great views down the valley.

We didn't explore much but had a nice day at the beach at Senigallia and were really impressed by Grotte Frasassi.

The local bakery and pizzeria are great and all the local people we engaged with were very friendly.

Owner's Response: Dear Adrian, Thank you for your kind words regarding your recent stay at Villa Staffieri. Many of our guests who return after the first visit, find there is so much going on in the area, from the Water park, exploring hill top villages, Sunbathing on many blue flag beaches and enjoying the local village festivals. All great reasons to come back to the area. We hope to see you again. Best regards

Great family house

  • 4 of 5

we had a great week here. As two couples with two toddlers we really valued the large bedrooms each with ensuite. The kitchen was very well equipped making meals in a delight. The welcome back was particularly nice after the early start in the UK.

There is lots of outside space, and the view is to die for. The pool was great for us but by September a little chilly for the toddlers. The village is a lovely stroll with two play areas, pizzeria, shop and bakery (open daily).

Of note the garden has some steep slopes, easily avoided but tempting for little ones.

Simon, the owner, was very helpful and easy to contact meaning we arrived confident we would have all we needed.

Owner's Response: So pleased to hear about your enjoyable stay with us at the Villa, the toddlers had a real treat with the local Pizza and pasta and pool, although a little cool, it sounded like they were in their element with the inflatables. The large 3000 Sqm garden securely fenced, with the Electric gates for added security, allows peace of mind when the children are play and have fun in the garden. The views from the garden, are truly sensational as the location is just outside a hilltop village and the rolling hills around, you can see from the pool. Next time it would be advised to visit the water park, in the nearby town of Apiro, home to the longest water slide in europe. We hope to see you again, next year.

Out & About

Site-seeing: The thriving and elegant town of Jesi is the nearest main town to the Villa. It has a lively cultural life, a good civic art gallery and many architectural beauties to endear you. It also boasts a prestigious autumn Opera Season ‘Pergolesi’. Other must-sees include Urbino (42miles), a jewel of a renaissance city with art collections to rival that of Uffizi in Florence, Frasassi Caves (10miles), some of the most spectacular limestone caves that you are ever likely to visit, and Cingoli (20miles), called the balcony of Le Marche by virtue of the superb panoramic views of the region that it offers. Assisi and Perugia in neighbouring Umbria are just over an hour's drive away and worth a trip.

Beaches - the nearest blue-flag beach of the clear Adriatic Sea is only a 25min drive away.

Walking: This region, peppered with charming hill-top villages, has an abundance of good walks – with even an excellent walk starting right from the villa itself!

Shopping: Discount designer shopping is one of the most popular pastimes of stylish Italians, and after only a short drive away, it can be yours too if you fancy grabbing a bargain at Prada, Tods and Armani........plus lots more!.
