L'Oliveto is a farm in an olive grove set on its own hill in a tranquil valley five minutes from Mogliano, in the heart of rural Le Marche. The self-catering apartment is on the ground floor with two bedrooms, a large terrace and views down to the swimming pool amongst the olive trees and out across the valley. The English owner and her Italian husband live in an apartment on the property with access from the opposite side of the house. There is a large productive orto (vegetable garden) and guests are encouraged to help themselves to fresh produce, tomatoes all through the summer as well as aubergines, salad, zucchini, peppers, basil and herbs. Lunch and supper can provided on request. The owners can give detailed advice and information on the area. The apartment, being on the ground floor, is delightfully cool and quiet in the summer and completely private.
The Cantina: The Cantina has been restored ready for the season of 2008. Accessed through the garden it offers a cool space for meals. Guests can book full board, prices on request, or order meals during their stay and pay at the end of the holiday. There is a standard charge for all meals, of €12 per person for lunch and €17 per person for supper. The food is all prepared on site, using local recipes and local ingredients. Prices include wine to be served at both lunch and supper.
