VERDICCHIO APARTMENT

Cupramontana Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Exclusive 10 guests only, quiet but convenient location for parks and sea.

Cantinone is immersed in the countryside in the foothills of the Appenines but still just 35 minutes from the seaside, from the port of Ancona and the international airport. Situated centrally in Marche region, only 15 minutes to the famous Frassasi caves, and under an hour to Fabriano, Gubbio, Assisi and hundreds of fascinating hill-top historic villages.

From here you can visit Marche's wonderful local restaurants, eat very good cuisine for a very good price. Nearby are family pizzarias offering very good value, and you'll also find fine dining at three-star Mitchelin restaurants as well.

Here on-site, the Cantinone has a 12metre outdoor swimming pool, hydro massage spa, garden, terrace, sunbeds and sun umbrellas. There is a vine-covered pergola for outside relaxed dining. You can barbecue outdoors or make pizzas in the wood-fired pizza oven. Your hosts will be on hand to look after you, to help you make the pizza bases, and even cook the pizzas if you want. For dining out, we can advise you of the best places to eat and be entertained. Talk to us about the fiestas and fairs on in the region during your holiday.

Further afield it is an hour to the shopping outlet villages around Macerata and Tolentino, and another half hour to visit the spectacular Sibillini National Park.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The Cantinone was a fantastic place to stay, and had everything we were looking for. The hosts, Jane and Ian, have restored this beautiful old villa (once a wine-making building) so that their guests have all the creature comforts (modern and spacious facilities, swimming pool etc) while still experiencing a slice of the valley's heritage. We loved the high vaulted ceilings and the bed was the most comfortable we slept on in Italy. Jane and Ian are both extremely helpful with tips for exploring the Le Marche region and the Cantinone is really well positioned for doing this: its in a quiet and peaceful valley, but close enough to the main route that connects Perugia and Assisi to Ancona, so that getting around is quick and easy.

We stayed in the spacious 2 bedroom apartment and enjoyed being able to self cater with all of the amazing produce that we were picking up, but the b&b option was also available. We also loved the Wednesday night wood fired pizzas. Yum!

Originally from New Zealand, we worked in London for 20 years before deciding on a change of life-style in Italy. We restored the Cantinone in 2001 to 2004 and would love to show you the pictures of our project. Our first guests arrived at Easter in 2006 and we have loved showing all our guests the wonders of this region of Italy.

Jane and Ian Foster purchased this apartment in 2001

We fell in love with the Cantinone when it was just a ruin, and it has been a labour of love to bring our house back to life. We like the location - we are so conveniently located to the major roads to the beaches, mountains and the regional attractions but have a quiet secluded garden and pool.

Best of both worlds - we are quiet and secluded, but we have good access, no difficult 20 minute access to the nearest main road. The house has history, but has been restored with every modern convenience and comfort. We have towering high ceilings, cellars to explore, a small gym, games room and bar for our guests to relax in. Our guests tell us that our pizzas are the best that have ever tasted - come and see for yourself if they are right.

CLASSIC ITALIAN COUNTRYSIDE GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
The Cantinone represents the classic Italian countryside to a tee. The hosts Jane and Ian were very welcoming and ensured my stay was comfortable with unique touch of home experiences such as delicious home-made pizza cooked in their very own wood fire stove. Their local knowledge of places to visit, including the local hilltop town of Cupramontana, the Hermitage and locals' "canteen" , markets and specialist shops ensured that I had a relaxed but interesting and very enjoyable holiday.
The apartment was very comfortable and rustically atmospheric adding to the overall friendly environment. As soon as I had returned home I wanted to go back asap!

A VERY WARM WELCOME AWAITS IN AN IDEAL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Jane and Ian are brilliant hosts - always on hand if you need them, but never intrusive. Originally from New Zealand, they spent a lot of their working life in England before coming to Italy 6 years ago. Cantinone is really charming and there are many lovely small towns and villages to explore nearby. Jane and Ian have nmade it their business to gain lots of local knowledge and are always ready with suggestions for trips, restaurants etc. The apartment was very private and comfortable and al in all we could not have asked for a better place.

Come and stay in our restored wine cantina where Verdicchio wine was produced until the 1960s. The Cantinone is situated in one of the most breathtaking and diverse regions in Italy - Le Marche, also called Italy in One Region. Waiting for you are tourist-free, undiscovered towns - and the best of Italian food, wine and culture as well as some time relaxing in the pool, at the beach, or perhaps a day on the golf course.

We have en suite bed rooms in our fully-equipped self-catering apartments. We have just two apartments, so the maximum number of guests is 8. This is the place for a relaxing and secluded holiday but you have very quick access to all the facilities of central Marche, the beaches, mountains, natural parks and outlet shopping. Also it is very easy to visit Assisi in Umbria, only an hour's drive away or even take a day trip to Rome.

The Cantinone has a 12metre outdoor swimming pool, hydro massage spa, garden, terrace, sunbeds and sun umbrellas. There is a vine-covered pergola for outside relaxed dining. You can barbecue outdoors or make pizzas in the wood-fired pizza oven. Your hosts will be on hand to look after you, answer all your questions about Marche, and to cook pizzas with you in the Cantinone's wood-fired pizza oven. We'll help you make the pizza bases, and even cook the pizzas if you want. You'll be welcome at the Cantinone. The Cantinone was awarded Italian Quality Mark.

Other Activities: wine tasting, walking, cookery courses, caving, exploring and just relaxing.
