Light and Spacious Farmhouse / Villa With Large Pool, Privacy & Stunning View



Updated: 03-Aug-2016
5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms (3 large ensuites), Sleeps 10 + 2, Restored

Casa Roberta is a beautiful, recently restored, traditional farmhouse in a private setting on the south facing slope of a peaceful valley, sitting among its own olive grove, copse and vineyard. Unfortunately, photographs cannot truly convey the atmosphere of the house and environs and do not do justice to the spectacular views of the Sibillini mountains!

There is plenty of space for leisurely meals for 10 people on the covered terrace or in the shade of an adjacent overhanging tree. Wide steps lead down to the large sun terrace by the 12m x 6m pool with level lawn and a shady tree beyond. The olive grove and vineyard nestle below the house, waiting to be explored.

Principal internal features include a very spacious ground floor and two large master bedrooms with equally large ensuite bathrooms (bath, walk in shower, basin, wc and bidet). With a large lounge and a separate snug plus the dining room and outdoor areas, there is comfortably space for 10-12 without feeling crowded. A full size Table Football inside gives authentic Italian entertainment! Plus Sky TV and a DVD player and library.

Had a fab holiday - again!

So peaceful and chilled. But plenty to keep us occupied when we needed it, even with a 5 year old!

Beautiful house in a stunning location. Best pool we have come across in 6 years of villa holidays. So thank you once again!

Just what the doctor ordered. A fabulous property where the spacious house is tastefully restored and is light and airy and the pool area is to die for with fabulous views to the Sibillini mountains. A real hideaway for rest and relaxation but also in easy access of delightful towns to visit of which there is plenty of information for you in the house. We managed the white roads easily in a little fiat panda. Our only disappointment was that the local chef Max was away on holiday so we missed having one of his evenings which are so highly recommended but that is another reason to return to this little area of heaven. A truly wonderful holiday and we can't wait to return.

Absolutely stunning house and location

  • 5 of 5

We are recommending the house to all of our friends. It is a stunning property inside and out. The pool is fantastic and the views from the terraces and the pool in both directions are exceptional. We loved the peace and quiet and driving the white roads in a nine seater is an experience in itself. There are some excellent traditional restaurants close by and we would recommend a trip to the beach at Sirolo. Mostly though it was difficult to tear ourselves away from relaxing around the pool. We cannot recommend this house highly enough.

Wonderful holiday in a beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful weeks stay at Casa Roberta. A beautiful house with fantastic views of the wonderful countryside of Le Marche.

The owners were so helpful right from our first enquiry.

The house is very large and spacious and very well equipped. We had a few rainy days and that's when the inside of the house came into its own very comfortable and lots of space for us all to spread out. A large DVD collection, table football and various games also kept us all entertained while it rained!

Spacious comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms, a lovely pool with plenty of sun loungers and pretty grounds.

Fantastic information (4 volumes) about the area, towns, villages, restaurants, activities, shopping, beaches, etc anything we wanted to know about was in the folders.

We had Max to cook for us who not only produced great food but also kept us entertained.

All in all a great house to rent would highly recommend and hope to return.

Fantastic villa in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We went to Casa Roberta for a week at the beginning of September and it was fantastic! The villa is beautifully done out and has everything you might need. Table football, Flat screen TV and dishwasher were all particularly useful!

The villa is set in the most picturesque area with amazing views in every direction. We had planned to spend days at the beach and go out in the evenings but the villa was so nice we just chilled by the pool and bbq in the evening.

We are hoping to return there for a future holiday!

A Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful fortnight at Casa Roberta and have no hesitation in recommending this lovely house.

We were a party of eight but could have comfortably accommodated more as there is plenty of bedroom, bathroom and living space. The house itself was clean, welcoming, simply decorated & furnished and very comfortable with everything provided.

A car is essential as the house is quite isolated and we spent some very happy times lost on the roads in the area - not that it mattered as the countryside is absolutely beautiful!

We had three 16 year old boys with us and thought they may find it limiting after a while but that was not the case at all. A lot of time was spent swimming, relaxing by the pool and playing cricket in the garden. Long leisurely meals on the shaded terrace and barbeques most evenings. We also enjoyed trips to the nearby towns and we had a couple of lovely days at the beach at Porto St Giorgio - a truly Italian resort.

Eating out was relatively cheap and always delicious, there are plenty of restaurant recommendations and other helpful information left by the owners and previous visitors.

We would love to return to Casa Roberta because the area is fascinating and there is so much to see and do within easy reach - or you can just relax with a glass of wine and look at the spectacular views!

Much as I would like Casa Roberta to remain a secret for the future booking needs of our party and the friends we have already recommended it to, I have to be fair to the owners and spill the beans. The house has loads of character, is perfectly maintained in all respects, is extremely clean and comfortable, has spectacular views and benefits from a gorgeous heated pool (warm enough in May to make it difficult to get the adults as well as the children out of it). While Paterno is a little further from the high mountains than some villas we looked at, it is actually very well positioned for access to all of the many charms of Le Marche. You will need a car, and access in snow looks as though it could be tricky as the house is a little remote and at the end of a steepish track. For our (early summer) needs, it was perfection. I should probably mention that if you do not like Ikea, you will not like the way the house is fitted out! For us though the interior had a stylish newness and practicality to complement the older character of the building. In summary, eleven very satisfied customers found Casa Roberta very hard to leave behind and will return. There we go - now we will probably never be able to find availability!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Ancona at 55 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Civitanova at 30 Kilometres Nearest Train : Macerata at 20 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Tolentino at 7 Kilometres Nearest Beach : at 30 Kilometres Car: necessary

Casa Roberta is situated in the hamlet of Sant'Angelo in Paterno with one small shop for basic needs (5 min drive). A 10 minute drive will get you to the historic walled villages of Urbisaglia or Colmurano (both can be seen from the house), with more shops, restaurants and bars. The larger town of Tolentino (15min) provides a wide range of shops (including large modern supermarket) and restaurants and the provincial capital, Macerata, with its summer opera festival and designer boutiques, is a 25 minute drive. The airport at Ancona is 1 hour away.

The beach is an easy 30 minute drive and the beautiful Sibillini mountains, with relatively simple skiing, are about 40 minutes and can be seen from the house. Lake Fiastra, a stunning lake for swimming in the Sibillini, is a similar distance. One of the many historical towns in the region, pretty San Ginesio, holder of a coveted orange flag for tourism, sits on a hilltop 20 minutes away by car. Vineyards and olive groves abound in this stunning countryside area.
