About The Owner

A dream come true!

Always wanted a house in Italy - it was only in later years we could afford it. We looked in Umbria and Tuscany; with no joy - too many tourists and too expensive. One year, the day before we left for home,we chanced upon Ascoli Piceno - amazed by glorious squares and Caffe Meletti we went straight into the first estate agent. An Italian friend says Le Marche people are the kindest & we agree.

It took 6 years to find a site with an amazing view in a village & build a house with a pool. We owe our good fortune to the village - Santa Vittoria - and the people who helped us find the site. There it is - up its own wee drive - our dream come true. Ciao.

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why The Owner chose Fermo

Santa Vittoria is such a pretty village and the villagers are friendly and welcoming to visitors - tourists are not too numerous. The views from the property are outstanding. It took six years of searching in the area before we saw the house and it was an immediate decision to buy as the site was ideal.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Casa Rosi is a new build on two floors in a traditional style with plenty of accommodation for six people. Being so close to the village is a real plus as it means guests can just walk into the village centre in less than five minutes where there are two restaurants as well as a baker, bank with ATM, chemist, two grocers, greengrocer, butcher and two cafes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'The house is beautiful and so tastefully furnished and the pool and the views magnificent. When we opened the shutters on the first morning and saw the views we were overwhelmed and could not believe how lucky we were.' C.H, Somerset.

We just want to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Casa Rosi - we loved everything about it. The panoramic views were spectacular and the location idyllic. It was wonderful to be just five minutes stroll from such a pretty village. We thought the interior of the house was beautiful and the kitchen extremely well equipped - easily the best of any holiday house we have rented. The pool was well used and the shade provided by the loggias along two sides of the house was most welcome - a great deal of thought obviously went into the design of the house. J.L.W. Surrey

Round and about there are numerous hilltop villages within a few minutes drive - many with weekly markets - Servigliano has a market every first and third Monday in the month. A little further away are the old hilltop towns of Fermo with a lovely main square and associations with Thomas a Becket and Macerata with shops and its summer opera season.
