**NEW** for summer 2015 bar and games room
Originally from New Zealand, we worked in London for 20 years before deciding on a change of life-style in Italy. We restored the Cantinone in 2001 to 2004 and would love to show you the pictures of our project. Our first guests arrived at Easter in 2006 and we have loved showing all our guests the wonders of this region of Italy.
Jane and Ian Foster purchased this apartment in 2001
We fell in love with the Cantinone when it was just a ruin, and it has been a labour of love to bring our house back to life. We like the location - we are so conveniently located to the major roads to the beaches, mountains and the regional attractions but have a quiet secluded garden and pool.
Best of both worlds - we are quiet and secluded, but we have good access, no difficult 20 minute access to the nearest main road. The house has history, but has been restored with every modern convenience and comfort. We have towering high ceilings, cellars to explore, a small gym, games room and bar for our guests to relax in. Our guests tell us that our pizzas are the best that have ever tasted - come and see for yourself if they are right.
Il Cantinone exceeded my expectations. The service provided by the owners was truly amazing, which made my stay comfortable and extremely enjoyable. The accommodation was just what I needed and was clean and well presented. The pool area was amazing. The owners Jane and Ian are very informative about local knowledge and know the best places to visit and eat giving me the true experience of Italian culture. I will definitely be booking again and if anybody wants to visit unspoilt Italy in it's true glory then I would definitely recommend you stay at the Il Cantinone.
These beautiful apartments are situated in a quiet valley between the typical Marche hills. Its a feast to stay at Cantinone. Jane and Ian, the owners, make you really feel at home. During your stay they let you really experience the Marche. Every week they organize a great pizza-party near their original wood burned pizza oven. Every guest gets to create their own delicious pizza.
This apartment has a great full size pool and a very nice and sunny pool area. There are enough beds to lay in the sun. We have never been there with more than three other guests, so it feels like your own place.
The apartments are nicely furnished and have excellent beds. There is a wide variety on movies available, which you can watch from a very comfy chair. The kitchen is well equipped. There are just two hot plates. But then again, eating out is cheap and very good. There is a small restaurant on walking distance, which serves a great 3 course lunch for under 15 euro, including wine and water.
Remarkable for the region is the wine. Cupramontana is in the centre of the Verdicchio area, a delicious white wine. Jane and Ian know exactly what wineries to visit for a nice tasting.
The location is perfect for exploring the region. You are close to the SS76 which leads to Ancona within half an hour, where you can enjoy the beautiful beaches. There are also some great places to have lunch.
We were very impressed with the Visciola apartment's space, comfort and private courtyard. The Cantinone's outside areas are beautifully laid out with a super pool. Our week's stay was relaxing but there is also plenty to see and do in the area, with good access from the Cantinone to the beautiful scenery and interesting towns of Le Marche. Jane and Ian are perfect hosts and we really enjoyed the pizza night with everyone.
The hole property is very beatifull and nice. The Visciola apartment has everything what you need. Very sweet were Jane en Ian. The swimming pool is realy large and everything is clean.
We loved to stay here. Thanks again.
Reinier and Monique
Jane and Ian always offer the warmest of welcomes. We have stayed a number of times over the years and would highly recommend Il Cantinone for anyone looking to explore the beautiful region of Le Marche. Jane and Ian keep themselves up to date on all their local knowledge so you can always be assured of discovering new sites or restaurants or markets to visit each time you stay! Spotlessly clean, comfortable and peaceful - we will continue to return for our 'Italian break'. J and J
My husband and I had a very relaxed stay at the Cantinone. We can't thank Jane and Ian enough for their hospitality, and while they couldn't control the weather they offered us a lot of different places to see when the weather was not so good. We read a lot of books and were pleased to see there was a small library of books to swap or read.
Thank's Jane and Ian for the wundefull and warmly treatment. We have enjoyed the great full size pool. Jane and Ian are perfect hosts, they told us a lot of the aera. It is a good spot for sightseeing. The see is only half an hour away, also there is a lake neat by. The next town is only 10 minutes away. it is very lovely, with a lot of restaurants and in August there are many spectacles.
The Visciola appartement was perfect for a little family. It was furnished with love. The bathroom had a spacious shower and a window, it was bright. We had slept very well, because the beds were comfortable.
Jane and Ian offer one day a week a pizza-night. They create special pizzas in their own wood burned pizza oven. They do everythink to make you feel comfortable and welcome. Thanks again and until next time .
Come and stay in our restored wine cantina where Verdicchio wine was produced until the 1960s. The Cantinone is situated in one of the most breathtaking and diverse regions in Italy - Le Marche, also called Italy in One Region. Waiting for you are tourist-free, undiscovered towns - and the best of Italian food, wine and culture as well as some time relaxing in the pool, at the beach, or perhaps a day on the golf course.
We have en suite bed rooms in our fully-equipped self-catering apartments. We have just two apartments, so the maximum number of guests is 8. This is the place for a relaxing and secluded holiday but you have very quick access to all the facilities of central Marche, the beaches, mountains, natural parks and outlet shopping. Also it is very easy to visit Assisi in Umbria, only an hour's drive away or even take a day trip to Rome.
The Cantinone has a 12metre outdoor swimming pool, hydro massage spa, garden, terrace, sunbeds and sun umbrellas. There is a vine-covered pergola for outside relaxed dining. You can barbecue outdoors or make pizzas in the wood-fired pizza oven. Your hosts will be on hand to look after you, answer all your questions about Marche, and to cook pizzas with you in the Cantinone's wood-fired pizza oven. We'll help you make the pizza bases, and even cook the pizzas if you want. You'll be welcome at the Cantinone. The Cantinone was awarded Italian Quality Mark.
Other Activities: wine tasting, walking, cookery courses, caving, exploring and just relaxing.
