Here a comment from an article from "The New Yoork Times"
'Le Marche, a small, diverse province rising from the Adriatic Sea to the 6,000-foot peaks of the Apennines. In between lies a Tuscan-like rumple of lavender fields, sunflower fields and vineyards spread across hills that hump off toward every horizon like a patchwork quilt on an unmade bed. In 2003, according to the Italian National Institute of Statistics, Le Marche had just 7 percent as many visits by foreigners as Tuscany'
My name’s Maresa till lst year I taught in a high school in Macerata. Now I am retired and I live in Loro Piceno with my sister Luigina. I have been travelling a lot since I used to teach English and I do love travelling.
I run the Countryhouse Acquaviva with my sister Luigina. We started this activity in 2007 and we have been running it with our brother Peppino who created it and we want to continue his project.
We love travelling and we do like meeting our guests, we try to help them with suggestions about the area and its cultural events.
Our property has an oustanding view, and though isolated it's only 5 minutes walking from the centre of the village.
There is a public play ground for children only two minutes walking.
We enjoyed our holiday in Loro Piceno, in countryhouse Aquaviva from the kind family in the way they are welcoming and cordial.
They have given so much appreciation given to the holiday.
Their delicious products from the garden!
Their way of cooking!
Valuable ideas for trips!
Countryhouse Aquaviva have a splendid position. The panorama is marvelous, with the Sibilli mountains sometimes covered with snow, in the background. There is so much beautiful and interesting to discover in the surroundings, the population is extremely welcoming and helpful. We have a lot enjoyed and return certainly once more.
This was by far the highest standard of country accomodation we had in ages: spacious, clean and with all the facilities we would have in our own country home, from barbie grill and pizza oven to airco and wi-fi. In one week we experienced mountains, seaside, medieval towns, a music festival and rest by the pool with a stunning view and great farm wine! Peppino and his sisters are helpful and discreet, always ready to suggest great places to visit, wine & dine, and offer amazing insights of the local history and culture. The area has a lot to offer even for the well seasoned traveller. We'll be back for more...
Als Erstes möchten wir unseren sehr herzlichen Vermietern Maresa, Luigina und Peppino für 2 wundervolle Urlaubswochen danken! Wir freuen uns, euch kennengelernt zu haben - und werden uns bestimmt wiedersehen!!
Bella Italia von seiner besten Seite:
Das Country House Acquaviva liegt am Rande von Loro Piceno und man hat von dort einen traumhaften Ausblick auf die Sibillinischen Berge.
Trotz der Hanglage des Ortes sind die 2 Supermärkte, Apotheke, Post, Bars, Gelateria und Restaurants sehr gut zu Fuß zu erreichen.
Die im typischen italienischen Stil eingerichtete Wohnung war sehr sauber, top ausgestattet und für uns 2 Erwachsene und unseren 9 jährigen Sohn völlig ausreichend. Wer selbst kochen möchte, findet alles war er braucht - und wie angenehm, auch noch ein bisschen mehr, wie z.B. Salz, Pfeffer und Zucker!! Gerne durften wir uns aus dem Obst- und Gemüsegarten frei bedienen.
Der Pool bietet nicht nur die perfekte Abkühlung nach Ausflügen, sondern lädt auch zu einem faulen `Sonnenbad´ ein. ..und dieser Ausblick...!
Die Beschreibung im Internet fanden wir sehr hilfreich und zutreffend.
Alle drei Cecchis waren zu jeder Zeit ansprechbar und sehr hilfsbereit, Fragen vorab per Mail wurden umgehend beantwortet.
Die Opernfestspiele im Sferisterio in Macerata sind ein Erlebnis!!
Ein Essen im `Girarrosto´ sollte man sich unbedingt gönnen!!
Verkostung in Peppinos Weinkeller!!
Lasagne da Cecchi!!
Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit, alles hat gepasst und wir waren bestimmt nicht das letzte Mal bei Euch!!
