Macerata Villa Rental Photos and Description
4+ ensuite bedrooms in this charming villa, reduced rates for smaller parties
Mangiasassi is a typical Marche villa built about 200 years ago using local limestone/sandstone. The villa has terracotta floors throughout making the villa a cool summer holiday rental and beamed timbered ceilings. The property features 4+ spacious en suite bedrooms as well as a disabled ground floor bathroom, private garden and terrace, and a lovely private swimming pool overlooking spacious grounds with fruit and olive trees. The owner is an art teacher in Florence and this reflects in the décor and restoration
Gualdo (1.5km) has stunning views over Le Marche countryside and offers wonderful amenities shops bank places to eat ect.. A short drive away is Sarnano, where there are a greater number of shops and restaurants to cater for your needs as well as a very well preserved medieval old town. There are numerous other medieval villages in the area to explore; their streets and piazza's seemingly untouched by modern times. The natural splendours of the Sibillini National Park are a 30 minute drive away, where you can marvel at the unspoilt landscape and mountain lakes, or for the more active, indulge in some walking or mountain biking or canoe and white water boating
Le-Marche is one of Italy’s most attractive and least spoilt regions located between the Southern Apennines and the Adriatic coast. It is a scenic region with mountains and valleys, hills, olive groves, terraced vineyards and flat low lands along its 170 km Adriatic coast. Although each year sees an increase in its popularity with tourists, it is as yet not swamped.
Villa Mangia Sassi lies in the heart of an area now being called “Gods Green Triangle”, Sarnano, Penna San Giovanni, and Monte San Martino. Rocky peaks, mountain streams and steep gorges provide spectacular scenery, in contrast to the long stretches of sand and picturesque seaside towns.
There is the local ski resort of Bolongnola, complete with lifts etc, approximately 8 miles away. Other places to visit in the region are: Ancona (70miles), Pescara (90 miles), Bolonga Forli (150 miles) and Rome 140 miles.There are many seaside resorts along the Adriatic coast Porto San Giorgio . San Bernadetto, Ascoli and many more.
Gualdo (1.5km away) is centred around a small piazza with a very pleasant bar there are about ten small shops, bakery, bank, post office and a small street market on Tuesdays. There are also two restaurants a play area for children and teenagers in a small park tends to be the focal point with organised games of soccer for local and visitors in the summer months. Two all weather floodlit tennis courts are a recent addition with coaching and court hire available.
Penna San Giovanni also about 2 miles away it is a walled medieval village with roughly the same shops and facilities as Gualdo; it has a small supermarket. Set 700 metres above sea level, magnificent views can be obtained from the little park perched on top of the village. The village also has a really nice pizzeria and bar [our favourite].

Guestbook comments from the owner
The house was more than fine Kevin.
We really loved the quiet location and the beauty and confort of the house. Also the BBQ and pizza oven gave it an extra holiday feeling.
We will sure make good promotion for Mangia Sassi with our friends.
