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.

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.
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 do not have a difficult 20minute 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.
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, 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.
