A quiet retreat for countryside lovers, with an eye for beautiful Italian-style villas. A place for rest and contemplation, swaddled by luscious hills – and their traditional olive trees and vineyard. A breathtaking, luxurious home for the ones who can’t get enough of Italian countryside aesthetics, yet cannot give up on the comforts of a modern home.
The property consists of an 19th Century Country House overlooking Monte Conero, famous for its steep cliffs on the Adriatic sea and its gorgeous natural Park. Surrounded by 115 olive trees, a vineyard and chestnut trees, it is the ideal place for those striving for quiet relaxation under the shade of the luxuriant trees, pampered by the soothing winds blowing from the Adriatic coast. But that’s not its sole unique feature: during the colder months, gazing away from the coast, it is possible to grasp the beauty of the Appennini mountains drizzled by snow. A once-in-a-lifetime view.
This luscious villa in Marche covers approximately 420 sq.m. in its picturesque and traditional- yet modern asset, having been restored in 1985. This qualifies for an extremely liveable property which doesn’t renounce on the amenities that could make it your home, retaining some traditional features such as wooden beams, three exquisite fireplaces and an outdoor stone tank.
It consists of two main areas: the first one starts off with an extremely spacious and bright entrance which welcomes you and your guests, allowing you to indulge in an initial chit-chat whilst taking boots off and hanging coats. This luminous space leads you to the living room, which is towered by wooden beams and the first magnificent fireplace – perfect for cozy nights in. The living room also has access to its own kitchen and a bathroom.
The second area is a large garage/storage room which is yet to be renovated. This allows for the imagination to run wild: turning it into a spacious garage hosting Vintage cars, or perhaps a cellar for precious wine-storage, or a fitness room overlooking the garden for fresh air:
Following the aesthetics of the ground floor, going up the staircase you’re welcomed upstairs with another cozy living/lounge room, centered upon the second fireplace around which to gather and relax, looking outside the two windows.
Through a stone arch creating a bright and spacious place you enter the dining area, connected to another kitchen, which can also be accessed by an outside staircase, as is always the case with traditional Italian Country Houses. This daytime part of the villa leads you then into the nighttime wing, serviced with five cozy bedrooms and two bathrooms, with their airy and fresh finish, rendering the Villa yet again traditional but with a touch of luxurious brightness.
This property consists of one hectare of fenced garden, ideal for small children or house pets to roam the land carefree, and more land of one hectare with 115 ancient olive trees, chestnut trees and a traditional vineyard.
In the garden there is also a stone tank which may be turned into a gorgeous swimming pool, for those who do not feel to go down to the nearby worldwide famous Conero beaches yet still want to have a swim gazing upon the Italian landscape.
This luxurious villa was built in a one of a kind land: constructed on stone, raw and pure as is the one from the Conero clifftops overlooking the sea from above, it embodies the true essence of the Marche countryside. The olive trees and the vineyard are the traditional ways of employing the many hectares of land surrounding Italian traditional farmhouses.
In a tight embrace between seaside and hills, this Villa grants owners and their guests full privacy and discretion: yet with a mere walk of one kilometer you can comfortably reach the nearest town, Varano. This historical village dates back to 540 a.C., and for centuries it has been one of the favourite places of the Ancona aristocracy to build their gorgeous country houses – such as this one.
It now provides day to day comfortable services, hosting among other things its annual festival celebrating Le Marche traditions and vernaculars, with theatrical performances and its famous wine fair. This event is dedicated to the ancient ‘Rosso Conero DOC’ wine, which has been produced in only four towns on the Conero Riviera – including Varano – for well over two thousand years.
Six minutes away from this property: the seaside. You can lay in the sun in the Mezzavalle beach, gazing towards the raw nature of the Mount Conero, or go for some fish delicacies and an evening stroll in Portonovo, a heavenly narrow beach just below the stone cliffs.
This Villa was built in the worldwide famous Conero Park, where land and sea come together in a perfect embrace. Here you can indulge in relaxing family activities, panoramic hikes, traditional food and wine tours.
