BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED RUSTIC FARMHOUSE IN AN IDYLLIC SETTING

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.
