I live in Northamptonshire in England and have two daughters at University. I grew up and went to school in Hertfordshire. My passion for Italy started after watching a holiday programme on TV about Le Marche. I booked a trip and went to see some properties and found Villa Casciano during that 1st trip. It has been a labour of love to restore such a big house but I have enjoyed all of it!

Brian purchased this villa in 2006

I chose this property because of the amazing original features, fantastic views and its sheer size and scale. I wanted a house that family and friends could visit and stay, with lots of space both in and outside. It's a real party house and is great for special occasions like significant birthdays and reunions.

The unique benefits of this house include its large size and scale, so even with a large group there is plenty of space. There is also a very large open-plan kitchen, dining room and TV room so everyone can gather for a real Italian-style dinner and social gathering! There are also some fantastic features like original chestnut doors, oak beams and iron-work, which have all been restored, stripped back and beautifully polished.

The garden is a special place. There is a large lawn all around the house with amazing views. We have 2 terraces, one for eating and one we call the 'gin and tonic terrace', which is great for early evening drinks before dinner, watching the sun go down!

Amazing views and plenty of room

A little tricky to find but once we arrived we had a wonderful stay. There were 9 of us visiting for a long weekend. We have family in Macerata and hosted them for dinner one night. We made them an American chicken dinner and they made us an Italian pasta dinner, carbonara. It was fantastic and 14 of us (for dinner) were very comfortable. The 9 of us who stayed were greeted with our own rooms. We used the pool for our Christmas photo. Watching the sunrise and moon was unbelievable. At first we thought we would miss not being plugged in (internet) but in the end, the peace and quite of the countryside was more desirable. The property was well maintained and the restoration of the villa was beautiful. We truly felt immersed in the Italian culture. If visiting Le Marche in the future with a large group, we would definitely put this villa at the top of our list. The villa was centrally located for our trips to Bel Forte, Cessapalombo, Caldarola, Macerata and Civitanova.
Owner's Response: Thank you for the great comments, I am really pleased you enjoyed your stay at the villa. Nice to know the kitchen was used to build international relations between two cultures! Thanks again, Brian

We have had an amazing holiday. The villa is fantastic ( even better than the photos suggest) and so spacious. The gardens and pool are extremely well kept and the children were entertained for hours each day. The weather was beautiful and the food delicious. Although a little out of the way, Assisi is well worth a visit. The only downside was having to come home!

Just got back

We thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay. If you follow Brian’s directions and not your GPS you’ll have no problem finding the house. You might want to get a rental car with a bit of power behind it since the driveway down to the villa is rather steep. We had no problem going down but our little car really needed to be coaxed to make it back up.

The villa is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery you could ask for. There's a lovely view no matter which window you're looking from. I couldn’t believe how wonderfully quiet it was. Inside, there’s plenty of room for everyone and the large open kitchen-dining area is just perfect for sharing the fun that comes along with the hustle, bustle and confusion of large family style meal times. There are plenty of markets close by for picking up groceries and wine. Not much of a problem in early May but later in the season mosquitoes might be a real nuisance since there were no screens, just don’t forget the mosquito repellent.

The villa is a great place to just kick back, relax and enjoy family, friends and beautiful scenery.

The villa is set in beautiful countryside at the end of a private gravel drive, but within walking distance of a historic hilltop village with bars, restaurants, pizzeria, supermarket, local bakery, grocers, butchers and banks. There are many other medieval villages and towns nearby with lovely restaurants, gelateria, architecture, historic places to see and summer festivals. Macerata, the atmospheric provincial capital, is within 7km offering sophisticated shopping and a market, restaurants, historic sights and the opera. Macerata has been voted in the top six places in Italy for quality of life. Lovely beaches are within 30 minutes drive and the mountains are 40 minutes away offering wonderful walks amongst the alpine flora and fauna.
