Casa Lola – Monte San Martino
Stunning 7 Bedroom Farmhouse with large children’s playden, views, pool with large garden & terraces.
The 360 degree views from the house are amazing with distant sea views to the East & The magnificent Sibillini mountains to the West. Le Marche is a fabulously beautiful region of Italy.
Casa Lola is comprised of 2 traditionally built buildings connected together to create a comfortable and elegant 7 bedroom house.
Outside there is a large terracotta terrace and covered pergola, table, chairs and big parasols to keep the sun at bay. A 9 x 6 metre South facing private fenced swimming pool is located just below the house, with spectacular views of the mountains and surrounding rolling hills.
On the large terracotta terraces there is a range of elegant French pool furniture to relax on and enjoy that well earned glass of Prosceco.
The house has most mod-cons, a dishwasher, washing machine, TV, DVD, CD player, ipod docks 4&5 (please bring own music) WIFI, 2 x cots & a camp bed.
The large 7.5 x 5.5m kitchen is comfortable and well appointed with a Danish wood-burning stove for winter use. There are 2 comfortable and stylishly furnished good sized reception rooms beyond the kitchen. The bedrooms are located in 3 zones within the house, which makes it ideal for two or three families to enjoy a degree of privacy.
A large farm building located close to the villa has been converted into a playden for guest’s use – Casa Pollo. It houses a huge netted trampoline, table-tennis, table football, and lots of toys for smaller children to enjoy, ranging from train sets and doll’s houses to a village shop. There is also a play-house, a swing set and sandpit for guest’s use next to Casa Pollo.
Located in the commune of Monte San Martino, there are excellent places to eat a short drive from the villa (or hearty walk) and cafes and delicious home made Italian ice-cream to be enjoyed in the gelaterias of Amandola and Sarnarno.
The Sibillini mountains offer some of the best walking to be had in the country, ranging from treks up valleys along the shaded rivers to more robust clambers where you can stay at refugios located strategically along crafted routes.
Excellent day trips include Assisi and Urbino, and Ascoli Piceno with it’s piazzas and galleries offering culture vultures a glorious day out.
Closer to home there is a riding school in the valley and playgrounds in abundance for very small children. A lake below the house with a deer park (although deer tend to hide) gentle buggy-friendly walk and pizzeria (with basic swings and slide to occupy energetic children) and restaurant to hand.
