About the property

Comfortable and stylish Farmhouse, with private pool and fantastic views

Villa Staffieri has been recently renovated and restored to bring together both comfort and style, while at the same time celebrating the beautiful architecture of Italian stone farmhouses. Set on the edge of a hilltop village, flanked by vineyards of the region's famous Verdicchio grapes, the house enjoys a rural setting with amenities such as Pizzeria, Bar & Shop, only a 5mins walk away. The large 14m x 5m pool set in a southern position offers superb views of the surrounding area. Villa Staffieri has been created to provide you with the ultimate summer holiday rental with its high standards of comfort and style. Enjoy self-catering at its best with its contemporary, well-equipped kitchen. Deep leather sofas and open fire make lounging compulsory in the spacious lounge and 4 beautifully appointed bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, create the perfect end to wonderful days.

Additional activities:: Beaches: Le Marche lies on the eastern side of central Italy, with fabulous blue-flag beaches running along the clear Adriatic Sea. In true Italian style, take a sun lounger for the day at nearby Senigalia, Numana or Sirolo.

Wine tours and tasting sessions: Take advantage of this wonderful wine region by enjoying a tour and tasting session at one of the many local vineyards. Our favourite is a small 'family-run' business whose wines have recently made their mark on the world wine stage. Some of their Verdicchio grapes come from the vineyards next to our garden.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic Week in Castelplanio; Lovely Villa; Highly Recommended

We had a great time here. The owners and the local lady who looks after the property were great: helpful and friendly. The villa is everything it looks in the pictures - clean and extremely well thought through. The kids loved the pool.

We spent a chilled week here between trips to Rome and Venice. Very laidback - even when the European street luge and skateboard championship came to Castelplanio.

Very highly recommended.

The ideal place for a family reunion and holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa has everything you could wish for when it comes to comfort, relaxation - and beauty. The view of the surrounding hills is stunning.

All of us, including eight-week-old Molly, enjoyed every second of our stay. Although we were seven grown-ups there was space enough for everybody, thanks to the house being so big and well planned.

Some of us started our day with a brisk early-morning walk up the steep hill to the village and the road out towards Poggio San Marcello. Before going back we took turns to visit the local baker’s, Il piccolo forno, and purchase our daily bread.

After a swim in the lovely pool – it is 15 metres long and allows you to stretch out in good strokes – and a long breakfast out in the pergola we spent a few hours basking in the sun, planning our day.

There are so many nice places to visit – the beach in Sirolo is a must, the caves in Frassasi well worth a visit, all the surrounding villages equally charming and vineyards just round the corner – that you will never be at a loss what to do.

Since we wanted little Molly to enjoy her very first holiday reasonably peacfully we skipped the restaurants in the evenings and prepared our own food inspired by the tempting ingredients we found at either the supermarket down the road in Macine or at the hipermercato in Jesi. And considering the amount of wine and water that was consumed with the meals, the wine cooler was heaven-sent!

One evening we had take-away pizzas from the local pizzeria up the hill, a fully recommendable treat.

The villa’s location in the very heart of rural Italy ensures that your stay will be a memorable one. Simon and Gail, the friendly owners, and Julia, the housekeeper welcoming you on arrival, will do everything within their power to meet your wishes.

Owner's Response: It’s great to hear about some of your holiday at our Villa. I am pleased you have sampled some of the activities in the area. Molly would have been a great asset to have in any restaurant in the area as all Italian’s love children as our experience has been with Lorenzo, he used to get a show round the restaurant and all the staff would want to pick him up and rock him slowly back and forward. I hope you can visit again and visit the water park, Loreto, many restaurants and other blue flag beaches serving great seafood. Hope to see you again

Great family house

  • 4 of 5

we had a great week here. As two couples with two toddlers we really valued the large bedrooms each with ensuite. The kitchen was very well equipped making meals in a delight. The welcome back was particularly nice after the early start in the UK.

There is lots of outside space, and the view is to die for. The pool was great for us but by September a little chilly for the toddlers. The village is a lovely stroll with two play areas, pizzeria, shop and bakery (open daily).

Of note the garden has some steep slopes, easily avoided but tempting for little ones.

Simon, the owner, was very helpful and easy to contact meaning we arrived confident we would have all we needed.

Owner's Response: So pleased to hear about your enjoyable stay with us at the Villa, the toddlers had a real treat with the local Pizza and pasta and pool, although a little cool, it sounded like they were in their element with the inflatables. The large 3000 Sqm garden securely fenced, with the Electric gates for added security, allows peace of mind when the children are play and have fun in the garden. The views from the garden, are truly sensational as the location is just outside a hilltop village and the rolling hills around, you can see from the pool. Next time it would be advised to visit the water park, in the nearby town of Apiro, home to the longest water slide in europe. We hope to see you again, next year.

Highly recommended for a relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa with amazing views over the countryside and only a short walk (up a hill) to the village. The pizza restaurant at the top of the hill far exceeded our expectations and is a must. The outside space is beautiful with plenty of places to sit and relax as well as a good sized eating area next to the BBQ. There are a few cars that idle past the gardens each day to the neighbouring properties but they weren't frequent or intrusive. The pool is a very good size and was cleaned twice during our stay (note: there is no shallow end which was fine for us as all our kids are competent swimmers. I am 5' 3" and could just touch the bottom). The villa itself is incredibly well-equipped and comfortable, being furnished to a high standard. The en-suite for every bedroom was an added bonus. When we arrived we were met by the housekeeper who was very helpful, explained everything to us and was also available on her mobile when we had queries. The generous welcome pack on our arrival (pasta, sauce, milk, juice, wine and more) was a very nice touch. Little details such as provision of beach towels, handsoaps, DVDs and games really helped make our stay. Many thanks to Gail and Simon who have gone to a lot of trouble to ensure guests are well looked after.

A gem of a house in a stunning setting!

  • 4 of 5

Villa Staffieri is a lovely conversion of a very old building with wonderful views from the pool, garden and loggia. I would have given it five stars but we were very disappointed that the pizza oven which was described as 'fully restored' was in fact not able to be used. It had been a 'must have' on our checklist for this holiday.

However, the house itself is very well equipped and the owners clearly care about their guests having a good holiday. The bathrooms are very high quality and the insect screens and ceiling fans were very useful, especially in our second week when the temperatures went into the 30s!

The gardens and pool are very well looked after. My only sadness was that the huge crop of figs on the fig tree weren't quite ripe! Our favourite times though we're spent sitting by the pool watching eagles overhead or eating under the loggia in the evening with the BBQ on the go. All made even more special when it got dark and the fireflies came out. Just magical!

Castelplanio is a lovely village witha good play park which our one year grandson loved. The staff at the local pizza restaurant were very welcoming and the local bakery made the best doughnuts we've ever tasted! My husband enjoyed his walk up the hill in the morning, stopping for a coffee in the bar before collecting the warm fresh bread and doughnuts. We're still having withdrawal symptoms! Lots of wine producers locally too. We stocked up at Tenuto dell'Ugolino where the young owner was very keen to chat about the referendum result! We had an outstanding Sunday lunch at Croce del Moro; five delicious courses plus wine and liqueurs for €25!

We've visited the Marche before so we hadn't planned to go out and about a lot but we were glad we'd taken other guests' advice and visited the Frasassi Caves. They were amazing.

It's a beautiful part of Italy and I'd happily recommend this house as a base for a great holiday.

A gem of a villa in a beautiful setting!

  • 4 of 5

Villa Staffieri is an outstanding conversion of a very old building. It has lovely garden grounds, pool and loggia where we ate so many of our meals looking out at the wonderful views over to the mountains.

I would have given the house five stars but we were very disappointed that the pizza oven, described as 'fully restored' was in fact broken and I don't know if there are plans to repair it. It was on our must have list for this holiday so that was quite annoying.

However, the house is very well equipped and the owners clearly care that their guests enjoy their holiday. The bathrooms are lovely and the ceiling fans in the bedrooms were very welcome when the temperatures went into the 30s! Also welcome were the fly screens on the windows which kept out unwelcome pests!

The pool and gardens were well-tended and my only sadness there was that the the figs on the enormous fig tree weren't quite ripe! Our one year old grandson loved wandering around the terrace picking up stone chips but the grounds would be a great place to play for older children. My favourite time though was the evening. Sitting at the loggia with the barbecue going and drinking Prosecco and then when it got dark, the fireflies came out in their thousands. What a magical light show.,

Castelplanio itself is a lovely village and the people were very friendly. The staff in the pizza restaurant were very welcoming and the pizza was great (as were the prices!). The best thing about the village though is the bakery. My husband walked up the little hill every morning, had a coffee in the bar and then came home with fresh warm bread and the best doughnuts we've ever tasted! Nice neighbours too. One kind man came out and offered us a brolly as we were wandering home in the rain! We sampled a fair bit of Verdicchio too and bought mainly from Tenuto dell'Ugolino which was just down the hill. The owner was very friendly and very interested to talk about the referendum! The best meal we had was Sunday lunch at Croce del Moro. Five courses plus wine and liqueurs for €25 and no charge for the little one! The quality was so good, I'm running out of superlatives!

We've visited the Marche before so hadn't planned to go out and about too much but we were glad we'd listened to the advice of other guests and visited the Frasassi Caves. They were amazing and the tour guide was so interesting.

We celebrated our Ruby Wedding at the villa and it was every bit as special as we'd hoped it would be.

Absolutely marvelous villa.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with friends who had rented the villa. Was just about perfect! Beautiful interior, 4 master suites. Large rooms - bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, family room and game room. Grounds were impressive with a wonderful swimming pool overlooking the valley.

If you are planning to visit Italy, this is the place to stay.

Out & About

Site-seeing: The thriving and elegant town of Jesi is the nearest main town to the Villa. It has a lively cultural life, a good civic art gallery and many architectural beauties to endear you. It also boasts a prestigious autumn Opera Season ‘Pergolesi’. Other must-sees include Urbino (42miles), a jewel of a renaissance city with art collections to rival that of Uffizi in Florence, Frasassi Caves (10miles), some of the most spectacular limestone caves that you are ever likely to visit, and Cingoli (20miles), called the balcony of Le Marche by virtue of the superb panoramic views of the region that it offers. Assisi and Perugia in neighbouring Umbria are just over an hour's drive away and worth a trip.

Beaches - the nearest blue-flag beach of the clear Adriatic Sea is only a 25min drive away.

Walking: This region, peppered with charming hill-top villages, has an abundance of good walks – with even an excellent walk starting right from the villa itself!

Shopping: Discount designer shopping is one of the most popular pastimes of stylish Italians, and after only a short drive away, it can be yours too if you fancy grabbing a bargain at Prada, Tods and lots more!.
