The Salino Country House which has been renovated with expertise is to be found in the midst of the green hills of the Marche region, and situated in the county of Contro at about 3 km from Gualdo ( 650 metres above sea-level), a medieval town in the province of Macerata and part of the ‘Comunità Montana dei Monti Azzurri’ ( The Mountain Community of the Blue Mountains). The farmhouse, from which there is a beautiful view of the countryside, stands on a strip of land of approximately one hectare, on a hillside that runs gently down to the stream named ‘Salino’, from which the property takes it’s name. The construction, which provides every comfort, is composed of the farmhouse and an annex with a swimming pool, able to sleep 15 people in a mini apartment, a one-room flat and four rooms, as well as a communal living area composed of a polyvalent lounge, a dining-room and a kitchen. Also included are a large garden, a car park and an olive grove.
The characteristic medieval village of Gualdo, the borough where “Il Salino” is to be found, is 3 km. away and at 650 metres above sea-level, a part of the Monti Sibillini (the Sibillini Mountains) national park. In Gualdo are all the shops that sell the typical regional products; here there are sporting facilities such as tennis, 5-a-side soccer, skating, and bowling.
At only 9 km. from “Il Salino” is Sarnano, an important thermal resort with the nearby ski resort in Sassotetto.
