Owner description: Remote region in the east of Umbria offers a unique landscape, which is considered one of the most beautiful areas in Italy.
Reviewed 24 June 2008

The Sibillini national park protects the wildlife and medieval villages in this beautiful stretch of the Apennine Mountains of Le Marche and Umbria.

There are stunning rivers, waterfalls, caves, gorges and lakes within easy reach of the villa plus local information centres where you can find out more about the tracks and trails, the abbeys and monasteries.

This high range within the Apennines was named after the Sibyl, a mysterious prophetess, who was condemned by God to dwell in a mountain cave, with other fairies and demons, until Judgement Day, having rebelled at the news that she had been overlooked as Mother of God, in favour of the Virgin Mary.

The park tourist site has a wealth of information on the area and the main events and places of interest http://www.parks.it/parco.nazionale.monti.sibillini/Eindex.html
Alternatively, purchase a topographical/ walking map of the area at http://www.mapsworldwide.com/sku_12058.htm or at most of the local Tabacchis (newagents)

The Parks Information centres will advise you on where to spot local flora, fauna and wildlife including deer, boar, wildcats, wolves, porcupine, peregrine falcons and golden eagles.

The dramatic landscape, with a highest peak of 2500metres, flower filled plateaux and the rolling hills below, offers an ideal location for walking, cycling, photography, drawing and painting. The Sibillini National Park has organised tours and treks throughout the spring, summer and autumn months and have numerous predefined itineries available http://www.parks.it/parco.nazionale.monti.sibillini/Eman.html

Sarnano is 1km from the national park and a great base for holidays in the region. Highly rated Trip advisor accom in the area can be found at http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g616178-d648220-Reviews-Villa_San_Raffaello-Sarnano_Marche.html
