There’s no business like a country business. Irving Berlin used to sing: ‘Everything about it is appealing, Everything the traffic will allow, Nowhere could you get that happy feeling, When you are stealing, That extra bow’.
This amazing property 15min from the Adriatic coast with restaurant and bedrooms for B&B, will let you manage an already prosperous business in the peaceful marchigiano countryside. By living and working here, you will no longer need a mindfulness course in your life.
The Main Building
The main building comes from a former farmhouse dated 1772, restored by the current owners and enlarged over the years as the business was growing and getting more important. The total area is over 1.100 sq.m. and it includes:
* An elegant restaurant that can accommodate up to 200 people, with large windows overlooking the garden
* A very spacious glazed lounge bar
* Kitchens and cellars, as well as storage rooms and space for the staff
* Private sitting room with fireplace and studio
Given the generous size, this wonderful space can be used not only as a restaurant for dinners but also as a banquet hall: guests can enjoy an elegant lunch/dinner, dance and enjoy their time together in the lounge area, equipped with a proper bar and stereo system and, if the ceremony is in the summer, they can run out and dive into the pool.
The private home is arranged with a spacious living room, double bedroom, bathroom and master bedroom with step-in closet, en-suite bathroom and gym area with large panoramic windows. The lovely mezzanine over the living room can be arranged as a studio or play area for the kids. The apartment, all around, is surrounded by a glazed terrace, with outstanding views over the marchigiano rolling hills.
The main building may be kept as it is, to continue with the business, or may be turned into a full private home.
The property goes with a number of annexes, used for different purposes:
Opposite the pool, there is the 120 sq.m. building recently restored and arranged as 7 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, where guests can stay in a B&B formula. Many, by the way, decide to enjoy it as a hideaway for a few days: they can sleep, have breakfast, meals, a walk in the nature a – why not – a wine tasting, with the owner as a special guide.
All bedrooms feature large windows with beautiful views over the Le Marche green hills.
Another important outbuilding is the big (195 sq.m.) pergola overlooking the valley: it is used for open-air banquets and dinners and it features a BBQ area. Parties under the pergola are some of the most enjoyable events here. The pergola can be closed with removable side covers, so you can use this space also on rainy days.
The other outbuildings are storages, technical rooms and garage, for a total of ca. 280 sq.m.
The property includes over 2.200 sq.m. of mature garden with plants and trees which guarantee shade in the summer. The garden has different spots to be enjoyed during the day. The nicest is the pool area, with decking where you can place sun umbrellas and sunbeds, with a lovely natural pergola to the side, where you can arrange a lounge area with snacks and drinks. All this, strictly, in a panoramic and breathtaking position, especially at sunset, when the blue sky gets painted with all shades of red.
On a lower level, a large parking space will let all your guests park their cars comfortably.
The position of this superb property is one of the most sought for in this moment: inland, but not too much, so you can get to the beach in just 15min by car. This way, you and your guests can enjoy calm, peace and relax but it won’t take you hours to go the beach or to reach the motorway as well as major services.
This area is also well known to all lovers of biking, because its winding roads make cycling very amusing. And for guests who want to enjoy an art tour, the Renaissance city of Urbino is just a few kilometers away.
The main villa, outbuildings and garden are part of a bigger property, which includes additional 1.9 ha of agricultural land. Most of the land is arable. The part on top is dedicated to the vineyard and includes a winery.
The winery is a recent project, started in 2015. The production is already active, but the current owners every year invest in additional spaces and new vinifications in order to offer products that are not only innovative, but also in line with the wine tastes of a constantly evolving clientele.
The position close to the coast of the vineyard gives the wine unmistakable and rare organoleptic characteristics, making it a unique product. At the moment the production is concentrated on Sangiovese mainly, but it seems something’s already cooking.
Close by there’s a big plot of land where they designed and submitted a project to build additional accommodations, in order to have two separate areas: the one on top for the accommodation business and that downhill for the guests of the restaurant.
The land also enjoys 700 productive olive trees: the olive oil of this area is well known throughout Marche and nationally for being one of the best in Italy.
Last but not least, on top of the hill, there’s an open-air consecrated church, where guests can celebrate weddings or other religious ceremonies in an evocative environment, surrounded by singing birds and then move to the restaurant area to enjoy the party.
The extra land with project, winery and church may be purchased with a separate negotiation.
Why Buy It
Buying this property is a double gesture of generosity:
* towards yourself and your soul, because you can do business, but in a very relaxed environment, in direct contact with nature.
* towards guests, because continuing this kind of activity means devoting one’s time to the happiness and pleasure of others. But after all, what could be more gratifying than seeing a smile on people’s faces and knowing that you gave it to them?
The property is large and thus offers many management opportunities, which can be either direct (family business) or the various areas can be licensed to third-party companies.
In any case, the biggest advantage is to take over an already operational business, with a 40-year background, made up of positive reviews and with a starred-restaurant heritage. It’s all downhill from here.
For those looking for a family retreat, you can change the internal layout of the main building to get a private home with all external amenities for your family and friends.
