In 1997, as we were travelling through Spain we made a decision: one day we wanted to live permanently in Southern Europe.
We fell in love with this unique part of Italy nearly 10 years later. It was a summer evening and fireflies were projecting a magic glow on the small farmyard.
This is how La Lucciola, which simply means Firefly acquired its name.
Today we love to welcome guests in our four appartements CASCINA, Fienile UNO & DUE and CANTINA who appreciate exactly the kind of holidays we like: an individual atmosphere typical to the countryside and the farms history which offers a lot of peace and quiet and room for recreation.
La Lucciola is 40 000 m2 big: the property is more then 100 years old and used to be a farm, which is still obvious from the grapevines, peach, apple, fig and cherry trees. A pool is situated on the property but it still leaves a lot of room for other outdoor-activities.
Right in the middle: Experience the beautiful environment
Cupramontana (see the picture above) is a typical village in the Marches with a rustic charm. The beaches along the Adria and the mountains for hiking can be reached in 30 minutes by car, as well as the city Jesi with 50 000 inhabitants. We love La Lucciola's location: right in the middle of the 'real' Italy, close to a lot of things worthy to be seen but far enough from the touristic sights so that one can really calm down.
Rating: worth discovering!
The natural surroundings with small hills, vineyards, and olive groves; the Frasassi flowstone caves, the three-day whine festival in our village, the 'Passeggiata' at night in Jesi or simply having a stroll through the small allies and meeting for a chat and an 'Aperitivo'.
