Casa Ginestra – Monte San Martino
Casa Ginestra is a stunning holiday home with a panoramic private pool set along a quiet country lane in the tranquil hills of the Tenna Valley close to Monte San Martino. The property has undergone an extensive renovation by local craftsmen working to the highest standards and now combines traditional Italian architecture with spacious contemporary interiors. This beautiful Italian farmhouse is available for rent sleeping up to a maximum of 8 people.
The property is located on the edge of a small traditional farming hamlet in the foothills of the Sibillini Mountains and boasts fantastic and ever changing views from the garden over undulating farmland towards the hilltop towns of Monte San Martino and Penna San Giovanni and beyond. On a clear day it is possible to see glimpses of the Adriatic in the far distance. The garden contains both sunny and shady well furnished terraces around the house and pool for dining and relaxing.
Close to the house can be found fig, olive, and walnut trees and pots of brightly coloured flowers are placed on the house terrace in the summer months. Steps rise through the garden to the pool area which is located in a sunny and panoramic position and is bordered on one side by a bank of lavender with a small recently planted olive grove beyond. The bay hedge which runs around this part of the garden border is of culinary quality. Other edible herbs such as rosemary can also be found growing around the pool terrace. The pool area is completed with an outside solar shower, pergola, and attractive and comfortable seating for relaxing and enjoying the views.
The sympathetically renovated house interior retains reminders of its previous life as a working farmhouse. There are walls of more than half a metre thick, original rustic exposed beams, attractively displayed stonework, and other small reminders of a previous life. The luxurious contemporary touches now include full gas central heating, an open wood-burning fireplace in the small sitting room on the first floor and a timelessly designed wood-burning stove in the large sitting room on the ground floor for the colder winter months, and four contemporary bathrooms (one for each bedroom) including one with a multijet over bath shower.
The house is furnished in a contemporary style with an easy neutral colour theme throughout. Bedding is all cool and comfortable high thread count Egyptian cotton. The kitchen is well equipped with ample dinnerware and cookware including everything you will need to create a delicious meal with the fabulously fresh local produce. In house entertainment includes a small book library (please feel free to exchange anything you have finished reading), a dvd library of around 150 films, board games, and a wii console. And for getting out and about and exploring the local area, there is a house book which gives lots of ideas and information and a guide book or two on the bookshelf in the large sitting room.
