Selected the place for its architecture and ambiance, historical qualities; great friendly staff with personal services, rooms are large and comfortable, elegant and so clean; quiet place to relax and think; enjoy nature and history; great place to base to visit the area of Ascoli and Marche. Surrounded by luxury and efficiency.

Room Tip: all rooms recommended being townhouses double story

A true find. Rooms in main house are delightful albeit a little tired. New suites excellent. Main house still home of owners who are friendly and helpful.
Well locate to explore the local area with hill top towns with most amazing histories and near to mountains and sea

This establishment has been very beautifully designed to incorporate very high standard self catering apartments as well as retaining the beauty and charm of the main residence. No where is out of bounds and it truly is so beautiful and peaceful walking around the grounds with seating everywhere so that you can sit and enjoy the beauty of the place. The main residence is delightful, the owners must be so trusting to have such beautiful personal items on open display.

Our apartment was of a very high standard incorporating the modern with antique furniture and fine artworks, just lovely.

The pool area was so quiet and peaceful a great place to lounge around for the whole day. It was as if we had the whole establishment to ourselves.

On the days we weren't lounging around we got really helpful information regarding sights and places to visit from Andreas in reception, nothing was ever too much trouble for him.

This place is wonderful, situated on a hilltop overlooking farmland, mountains and yes some modern industry, but this does not spoil it whatsoever, a great place to discover the beauty and charm of Le Marche region. A gem.

We have just spent eight days at this beautiful establishment. The forward thinking owners have beautifully converted part of their Italian family residence into a number of separate apartments and rooms in the main house, whilst still living in the property themselves. We found it a very quiet establishment with a restaurant attached-see separate review.

It is essentially set on the outskirts a working town, but the setting is absolutely superb with views of the sea and the mountains in the distance. It is a really authentic Italian setting without the Tuscan prices and touristic attitudes. The main house is exquisite and family heirlooms, photographs, paintings, furniture etc are left in the property for everyone to admire. Truly beautiful and it would take a long time to examine each room to do it justice rather than the fleeting visit we made.

We could not fault any of the staff whatsoever. From Andreas, our reception host, ever helpful and always available to give advice to the cleaners with whom we managed to have a very pleasant conversation -even though they spoke little English and we spoke virtually no Italian! An education into Italian working conditions providing a stark contrast to the British situation. A somewhat amusing discourse but highly entertaining and gave us the opportunity to speak to real people.

The pool and surrounding area was very pleasant even though there were railings which had been mentioned by other guests. In our opinion a somewhat overzealous and over the top EU directive forcing the owners to comply with regulations created by bureaucrats in offices rather than on the ground.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, found it difficult to fault any aspect and this place is a real must for anyone who wants to see the real Italy and surrounding area.

If you look them out, there are plenty of decent restaurants outside of the property and charming Italian mountain villages eg Campli, Offida, Grottomare (old town) and Civitella del Tronto, despite the tragic earthquake recently. A perfect base to keep exploring with some R & R in between by the pool!

Room Tip: Apartments have outside seating next to the rooms, Rooms in the main house do not but you can easily...

The hotel is lovely and we had a great room in the main house. Unfortunately the hotel is in the industrial zone which is quite ugly. It is also very close to the motorway. The pool area has been ruined by a fence and turnstile which is a shame, it really is very strange. We had booked for 6 nights but left after 2 to head back to Tuscany which is much more beautiful.

On the up side the staff were wonderful and couldn't of been more helpful. The food in the restaurant was delicious and service wonderful. Unfortunately the breakfast was very basic and could be vastly improved upon.

I would give the hotel 4 starts, the staff 5 but the location only 2.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review of our old family house and home, and your comments on our wonderful staff. We appreciate that if you look down into the valley from some parts of our hilltop you can see the effects of modern life - offices and supermarkets as well as trattorias, cafes, etc, and a superstrada on the other side of the valley (thankfully not a motorway!) - but we prefer to look across the valley at the rolling farmland and the high mountains behind - on a clear day you can see the 3000m Gran Sasso.

So although we're not actually in an 'industrial zone' we can unfortunately see some of modern Italy - however with a short drive over to the neighbouring small valleys you can definitely travel back to a more bucolic time, with many wonderful hill towns, castles, wineries etc to explore. Our villa's location may have some imperfections, but we're a great jumping off place for a surrounding area which can definitely rival Tuscany's beauty, and without so many other tourists...

You mentioned the pool strangely having a fence and turnstile - these are to meet recent EU regulations to protect children from drowning. It's not perfect for everyone but parents appreciate it.

Thank you also for your comment on our brilliant restaurateur, very inventive - but rather traditional on breakfast, which in Italy is often very simple (he's recently taken them on... we are working on this...)

We do hope you are able to explore Le Marche further sometime - it has many wonderful surprises, even for Italians...

Kindest Regards,

Stefania Pignatelli Gladstone
Custodian and Curator
