Macerata Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4/5 Bedroom farmhouse, sleeps 8/10, with private pool in Penna San Giovanni

The impressive Casa Serena is sympathetically restored, retaining a wealth of original features; it is a rustic, traditional, spacious and inviting 4/5 bedroom Marchigianan farmhouse with an adjoining one bedroom self contained apartment. Set in 5 acres of beautiful private grounds boasting a vineyard, a walnut grove and numerous fruit trees. French doors open onto terracing which encircle the house and border the landscaped gardens and pool terrace. The extensive lawn merges with a meadow that stretches to the vineyard and beyond to the Saline river at the foot of the valley, perfect for country walks and spotting the local wildlife. The brand new swimming pool has stunning glass mosaic tiles and is for the exclusive use of our guests only and boasts enchanting views along the valley and a classic Italian vista composing white road and cypress encircled distant hillside villa, the tranquillity and privacy create the perfect environment for a relaxing, sun soaking holiday.

The surrounding area: Nestling in the charming Saline Valley Nature Reserve, Casa Serena is the perfect base for country walks and spotting the local wildlife including roe deer, pine martens, porcupines, buzzards and the very rare golden oriole. One of Penna San Giovanni's best restaurants is a pleasant 15 minutes walk from the house. Penna San Giovanni, has two grocery stores (Coal on the main street is run by Luciana and Mauro who speak a little English), two bars/cafes (one with a pizzeria in the basement serving the best pizzas for miles), several restaurants in the vicinity, an open air bar and pizzeria which operates in June, July and August and is situated above the lovely children’s playground, a bakery, a butcher, a pharmacy, a tobacconist (run by Umberto and Paolo who speak excellent English), a doctor's surgery, a hairdresser, a barber and a petrol station (sometimes run by Monia and Luca who both speak some English).

Child friendly: Casa Serena is suitable for children though younger children should be supervised at all times as the gardens and pool are open areas. Casa Serena is fully equipped for babies and toddlers, we have 2 cots, cot linen, baby monitor, night light, high chair, steriliser, changing mat, potty, toilet seat, plastic step, bouncy chair, play mat, toys and books, car-seats, pram with carry-cot and seat, plastic cups, plates and cutlery.

The owner and website: A small self contained apartment adjoins the main house and is occupied by the owner Jenny, who can be discreetly at hand if required to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible, as well as regularly cleaning the pool and (very early morning) watering of plants and garden.

Springtime Relaxation

  • 5 of 5
Casa Serena is simply that, a quiet location,and a beautiful, comfortable home in a serene setting. Our extended family stayed here for 10 days, and loved it. The house is very well maintained and in perfect condition, while being historic and beautiful.
In May the temperatures were in the 60's. Very comfortable for breakfast on the patio in the morning and sitting by the pool in the late afternoon. Back roads were quiet and the hill towns were full of gorgeous piazzas, churches and art. The Marche is really undiscovered, and beautiful. Local people were happy to see us, and to help us learn about their area.
Our host, Jenny, was so friendly and helpful. She is a delight.
We would highly recommend this rental for families.

Très bien je recommande

  • 4 of 5
Nous avons passé 2 semaines en famille en aout 2014.
Idéal pour 2 couples avec 6 enfants max.
Maison très bien décorée avec belle piscine dans un cadre champêtre.
Conforme aux indications de l'annonce sauf pour la mer qui est à 20 miles et non pas km.
Nous avons été très bien accueillis.
Ne pas hésiter !

Superbe

  • 5 of 5
Magnifique alliance du charme rustique des marches italiennes avec le confort moderne. La Casa Serena est très grande (nous étions 5 + 2 enfants), très bien équipée (en particulier côté cuisine!), et les propriétaires britanniques sont aux petits soins, très efficaces et très discrets. Pas de voisin, pas de bruit, pas de pylônes électriques... La vue est belle mais pas dégagée. De nombreux arbres viennent apporter de l'ombre aux 2 (!) terrasses, et la piscine est nettoyée chaque jour aux aurores (sans bruit). Petit potager également à disposition. La prestation est vraiment à la hauteur du prix payé. Pour ce qui est de la région, Les Marches sont à mon avis le joyau caché de l'Italie centrale. Paysages magnifiques, gastronomie rayonnantes, prix raisonnables, et très, très longues plages (à environ 45' de voiture). Voiture absolument indispensable. Je recommande vivement !

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Serena is a fantastic, beautiful house in a very quiet and natural environment. Jenny and David gave us a warm welcome! The house is very well equipped and clean. We loved the pizzeria in Penna San Giovanni, simple and honest Italian food with very friendly owners/staff.
If you like a quiet holiday in a beautifull setting, Casa Serena is the right address!
You have no neighbours! We loved our stay!
