Il Castellano is a large country house, perfectly restored with respect to its original character. Situated in the San Ginesio district, it lies within half an hour of both the Adriatic coast and the Sibillini mountain range and National Park. It stands at roughly 450m above sea level in a very peaceful location in its own Mediterranean wood, and surrounded by a large lawn. The house sleeps 14 with 3 double rooms, 6 singles and one twin, with three bathrooms each with shower. There is a large swimming pool set amongst an olive grove with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.

Perhaps the most attractive feature are the woods which stretch behind the house for 5 acres, with pathways, benches and tables, ideal for picnicking, or just to enjoy the beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. All for exclusive use by the guests.

Outside the house.: Surrounding the house is a large area of land, part of which comprises the lawn, but mainly consisting of a wood set with walkways and paths. Surrounding the wood are fields, which are cultivated throughout the year. The whole area is beset by trees and shrubs of Mediterranean origin, such as oaks, Holm-oaks, olives, willows, fruit trees, and brooms.

Also, the area is populated by many animals, which roam freely: you can easily come across hares, pheasants, squirrels, deer, wild boar, porcupine, etc.

To the south of the house flows the Entogge stream, along which run paths accessible by foot or mountain bike which allow total immersion into the natural environment.

Otherwise you can simply relax and bathe in the sun, or read a book beneath the shade of a hundred-year-old oak tree.

Immediately around the house is an large garden with outside seating, sun chairs, umbrellas, a wood fire and BBQ for cooking, and an outside shower.

Horse-riding and tennis are both available nearby.

There is also a large swimming-pool as well as tennis courts in the nearby town of San Ginesio (10 mins by car).

A bank, chemist's, Post Office and supermarket are all available in both San Ginesio, and Colmurano.

Book now, you will not be disappointed

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Il Castellano which my brother booked for his 50th birthday. There were 14 family members in our party and with the 3 bathrooms we had plenty of room and space.

Such a wonderful area to be in, sitting under the tree out the front of the villa, overlooking the valleys and mountains, its idyllic.

The pool was really enjoyable and kept very clean by the filters.

We had a bbq a lot of evenings (when we weren't out) and we ate outside altogether in the garden. The table in the kitchen was big enough for all of us for breakfast

The kitchen was rustic and well equipped beware of the toaster though, you could start cooking the toast the day before lol Great to have a dishwasher and a washing machine which were well used

The children enjoyed the games room and there were quite a few inflatables for them to enjoy in the pool

The owner is very friendly, doesn't speak a word of English but happily chats away to you in Italian, funnily enough though most of the time we kinda got what he was saying

The villa can't be found by satnav, but as we were met and showed where it was, it was easy to find from then on.

There was a donkey and her baby on the road to the villa, they were there most days but not all, really cute

San Ginesio has a market on Sunday to get the local produce but it is in driving distance, not walking distance

We flew into Venice, which was about 4 and half or 5 hours drive,

Rome was about a 3 hour drive away, we drove to Orto and took the train into Rome

But there were some beautiful places to visit a lot closer, easier and quicker to travel to and it is not far to drive to the coast and to the many walled towns around the villa.

A very comfortable villa, in a marvellous area of Italy

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Oh wow what a brilliant place. We have stayed in many places in Italy and none have been as well equipped as this house. The pool is really lovely. We loved San Ginesio and tried out many restaurants in the area, all of which were excellent. Mario is wonderful and Gabriel is extremely helpful. We were there for 2 weeks in August, and I if I could I'd go back next year I would. It's perfect for relaxing, visiting the mountains or for the beach. I would definitely recommend.

Fab family property

  • 5 of 5

Il Castellano was perfect for our group of 3 families with young children. The pool was lovely and the gardens around the house meant the children had lots of space to play.

The house was informal in style which suited us. Mario was lovely and Gabriel extremely helpful.

Highly recommended.

Vacances dans une Italie hors des sentiers battus

  • 5 of 5

Avec un groupe d'amis ( 9 adultes et 4 enfants ) , nous avons passé deux semaines de vacances à "il Castellano" durant le mois de juillet 2010 .

"Il Castellano" est une très belle maison , spacieuse , bien équipée , avec une grande piscine , et bien située dans une superbe région encore épargnée par le tourisme de masse : Les Marches . Nous y avons rencontré très peu de français ( nous avons souvent été pris pour des anglais ou des américains ) . Les habitants - accueillants - échappent aux clichés habituels que l'on fait des italiens en France .

Gabriel , un anglais tombé amoureux de la région - sympathique , prévenant , disponible , attentif aux désirs de ses hôtes - fut notre interlocuteur durant les premiers jours .

Puis , Mario le propriétaire , discret , chaleureux , généreux ( nous n'oublierons pas le panier de produits locaux à l'arrivée et l'huile d'olive de sa production qu'il nous a offerts ) nous a fait partager , lors d'une splendide sortie en montagne , sa passion pour les Monts Sibyllins et pour région , Les Marches .

Une véritable rencontre , venue couronner , une merveilleuse quinzaine de jours de vacances .

Nous reviendrons à "Il Castellano".

Splendid vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were two families spending a fortnight in July at Il Castellano. The house is exquisite, the kids loved the pool, I enjoyed long biking tours in the hilly roads (thanks to Gabriel for arranging rental of road bkes!). Cooking facilities were excellent. The only downsides were the long distance from major airports and very hot July nights.

Great for cycling enthusiasts! Plenty of room for large families/parties

Half an hour by car in one direction takes you to the sun kissed beaches of the Adriatic, and in the other to the foothills of the Sibillini Mountains, which offer both simple excursions and more serious rock-climbing. All of the towns and villages nearby are rich in castles, fortresses, churches and abbeys, and are witness to their medieval origin (Castello delle Rancie; Castello di Caldarola; Abbazia di Fiastra).

15 mins by car takes you to the Roman ruins of Urbs Salvia.

The city of Macerata, 20km away, hosts opera and classical music festivals annually in its famous Sferistereo.

Slightly further a field lie artistic cities of real value such as Urbino, City of Renaissance, Recanati, Loreto, Assisi, Perugia, Roma etc...

To appreciate the local culture and traditions, there are numerous festivals throughout the year, which take place in the surrounding villages. This is also a great way of trying local products and traditional cuisine.
