Luxury Country House in Marche - Italy
Typically, an agriturismo (loosely, Italian “farm-stay”) is an independently-owned farm that the owners use partially or totally for accommodation purposes.
This is what you’ll find in this amazing agriturismo, composed of 2.37 hectares of agricultural land, with a big main building, and several annexes useful for cultivation purposes. All set in a quiet and unspoilt setting, with superb views of the Marche rolling hills and Monte San Vicino.
The Main Building
The main building is an original marchigiano farmhouse completely restored with a rustic but elegant taste. The farmhouse is characterized by the typical Marche architecture with exposed beams and original terracotta tiles. The terracotta floors on the ground floor are original, probably from the 1950s; where the tiles were not enough, a flooring was created with new tiles, but completely similar to the traditional ones.
The total area of the main farmhouse is about 400 square meters on two levels:
On the ground floor you find the reception room, the restaurant with fireplace, and the large professionally equipped kitchen: although a farm stay has no legal obligation to provide meals, in the tourists’ collective imagination, this kind of accommodation is the place where you can sleep, but also taste delicious dishes of the local tradition, made with organic farming products. This agriturismo is all of this, it’s true and pure and has excellent reviews.
Also, on the ground floor there are 2 guest bathrooms for the restaurant, a double bedrooms and a single bedroom, which share a private bathroom.
Attached to the main building there’s a wing, accessible both from the kitchen and the garden, where there’s the staff bathroom, a spacious storage, a technical room and a bread oven.
The first floor is accessible via a typical central staircase and that’s where the accommodation area is arranged. Here you can find 4 very spacious double bedrooms, all with en-suite bathroom. The landing is occupied by a cozy sitting room with monumental, original fireplace, where guests can sit and socialize.
All rooms are bright and from all of them you can enjoy a unique view: some overlook the ancient bell tower of the Renaissance church of San Paterniano, others enjoy a view over the valley and the “calanchi”, the typical ground erosions.
Both the restaurant room on the ground floor and the sitting room upstairs feature an underfloor heating, while all bedrooms have air conditioning, thus to provide maximum comforts to guests, both in the summer and in winter.
The atmosphere that is perceived in the farmhouse is warm, welcoming and authentic: everything a tourist could wish for from a real Italian farm-stay.
The property enjoys a few annexes, which are all very useful for agricultural purposes:
The former chicken coop measures about 24 sq.m. and is a convenient shelter for tools. Alternatively, it could be refurbished and transformed into a pool clubhouse.
The small house measures about 60 sq.m. and consists of 2 rooms. This small building could be transformed into a hobby room, SPA or a two-room apartment, to be used as a pied-à-terre for the owner.
The barn is about 85 sq.m. and can have a dual function: a place for storing fodder, or the owner’s permanent residence. In fact, the barn can be renovated, enlarged and used as a home for the farmer.
The property is surrounded by 2.37 hectares of agricultural land, in addition to a garden set on 2 levels: the first level is a spacious flat terrace with trees, arranged with tables to dine out and relax under the shade. The lower level is now occupied by the brand new 12x4m swimming pool and black liner, which perfectly blends with the surrounding nature.
The agricultural land is currently cultivated with lavender from which amazing essences are extracted for the fragrance of the laundry, as well as oils to be used as room fragrances. Some of these essences are also sold.
There are also olive and fruit trees such as figs, cherries, persimmons, peaches etc.
The property is accessed via a well maintained white road, which connects Apiro to Domo a fortified castle with a lovely central square and a beautiful church dating back to 1473 with a Renaissance portal and a wood triptych, as well as various frescoes.
Domo is the place of silence, where you can admire the rolling hills of the Marche in peace. All services, on the other hand, can be found both in Apiro, Cupramontana and Serra San Quirico, all equidistant (about 8-10km).
The position of the farmhouse is dominant, with a mind-blowing view of the valley and the surrounding hills. A magical and enchanting place for true lovers of nature in its essence.
