Villa Miramonti: stylish apartment for 2/3 with lovely pool in amazing setting!



Updated: 18-Oct-2016
Elegance and charm, in delightful gardens with lovely pool and panoramic views!

Villa Miramonti nestles on a hillside surrounded by landscaped gardens full of ornamental, fruit and olive trees with spectacular panoramic views across a magical rural landscape of rolling fields, valleys, woods, hilltop medieval towns and the range of Sibillini Mountains over which the sun sets in the evenings. The house, gardens and lovely pool enjoy full sun all day but there are plenty of shady spots to be discovered. Our location is tranquil yet we are a short walk from the nearest village and a short drive from Servigliano and all its amenities.

Villa Miramonti’s two charming, luxury, vacation rental apartments can accommodate 2 or 3 people – they are the perfect base for a unique holiday in idyllic, rural surroundings. From here you can experience the best features of Italy: its culture, way of life, beaches, mountains, food & wine. Our apartments are fully independent, furnished and equipped to a very high standard for self-catering, with stylish and comfortable bright living areas, modern kitchens and bathrooms; each has its own unique character. They both have private entrances, parking spaces and private areas for sitting or eating outside under the warm sun or bright stars. Gentle steps lead down through our olive trees to our beautiful swimming pool where you can relax and enjoy the stunning panorama; you can find a shady spot in the lovely gardens or you can relax and enjoy the beautiful landscape of Le Marche from your private balcony or terrace.

CARDELLINO our delightful, self-contained, modern apartment for 2/3 people, is on the ground floor of Villa Miramonti, in an idyllic, rural setting ideal for a relaxing or active holiday. This stylish apartment is furnished and equipped to a very high standard with lovely, cool, tiled flooring throughout and is centrally heated during cold periods; the building is well insulated and all windows double-glazed always keeping the temperature pleasant, but ventilation fans are available in the summer.

CARDELLINO apartment has a private entrance, a double wooden and glass door with internal shutters, that leads into the bright contemporary kitchen with burgundy & cream colour lacquered cabinets and free-standing fridge-freezer; this is a pleasant, well-equipped room for food preparation and cooking. There is a small dining area should you prefer to eat inside, or if you want, you can sit outside in your private patio under the trees with Bistro table and chairs or on your private terrace at the front. Beyond the dining area, there is an alcove with shelves for storage and a washing machine for your use; there is also an electronic combination wall-safe. The light, modern fully tiled family bathroom has a lit mirror, shaving point, a bidet and a spacious glass fronted corner walk-in shower; there is also a chrome bathroom cabinet and a hair-dryer.

CARDELLINO’s large, bright south-facing living room has distinct sleeping and relaxing zones to create the perfect fusion of comfort and style. There is an elegant, comfortable king size wrought iron bed and colourful wooden furniture, including a double wardrobe, two bedside tables with lamps and a tall chest of drawers. The main sitting area has a comfortable, modern leather sofa-bed for enjoying the views south, across the gardens towards the mountains. For you relaxation, you can watch the modern High Definition TV with both Terrestrial & Satellite reception and Blu-ray/DVD player, or listen to the mini hi-fi system (Radio & CD player, with iPhone/iPod connectivity) and, of course, access the free internet Wi-Fi. You will also find a small collection of books and DVDs to enjoy during your stay. A folding wrought iron screen with white linen panels can be used to separate these two areas for living & sleeping should you wish. Large mahogany, French doors open onto your private sunny south-facing patio/terrace with views through the lush gardens towards the Sibillini Mountains. A retractable sun awning creates shade and you can delight in the tranquil atmosphere from the rattan table & armchairs; this is the ideal place for enjoying your aperitivo ‘al fresco’ under the sun or the stars.

The apartment is centrally heated during cold periods; the building is well insulated and all windows double-glazed always keeping the temperature pleasant, but ventilation fans are available in the summer. Cotton bed sheets and fluffy white towels are of course provided – and changed weekly. In addition pool towels are also provided for your stay.

In the apartment, you will also find a folder of useful information (including suggestions for trips to the coast, lakes or National Park) and you can make use of one of our portable GPS satellite navigation units, with many interesting pre-set destinations - places to visit & restaurants - subject to payment of a (returnable) deposit. We also provide for your stay, two folding chairs, a beach umbrella and a cool bag so that you can enjoy your days out at the beach or mountains!

Please note that the apartment is Non Smoking and is not suitable for children under 14 years of age.

About the Owner

In 2012 we left our busy lives near Oxford-UK (Joe in the 'corporate world' and Carolyn in Education) together with our dog, Django, for a new life in Le Marche. We have both lived and worked in Italy before (Joe is fluent in Italian) and we love the way of life, history, culture, landscape and, of course, the food! We're also passionate about the sea and the mountains and now we can enjoy both when we want a day out. We now live in the main part of the Villa and have our own private entrance, terrace & gardens. Django is very friendly & well behaved; he now has a little "brother" Oskar to keep him company. They both spend most of their time with us and sleep inside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Trip Advisor:

5 of 5 stars

I decided to go in October because I felt it was more comfortable to cycle than in the heat of summer. I arrived to a warm welcome from the owners and shown around the comfortable, well-maintained apartment. Having cycled there from the airport, I could not resist plunging in the villa's open pool overlooking the beautiful Sibillini mountains. The quiet location was ideal to explore the surrounding countryside, villages and historic towns by bike. Although english is not spoken by the locals and I could not speak any italian, I still got by when asking for directions and ordering food. I would certainly recommend the villa to friends.

Stunning apartment in stunning countryside

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very well equipped spotless clean both inside and outside.

The views from the apartment are breath taking of the hill top villages and the Sibillini mountains.

Carolyn and Joe are the perfect hosts ,the work they have done to their property is outstanding.

The little guide book they have put together giving advice on where to eat in the area and also on the coast and in the mountains .

The little book also provides you with suggestions of places to visit including routes and places of interest.

Carolyn & Joe live at the house ,they were very accommodating ,they were there if you needed them.

Carolyn booked a table for us at the villa Funari House in Servigliano,10 minute drive away. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

There are so many things to see and do in the surrounding areas of Villa Miramonti including the mountains , quaint hill top villages and of course the beaches.

We also liked the hotel Farfense in Santa Vittoria for dinner,Francesca helped us with the menu.

We would strongly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a nice relaxing holiday.

We have still got lots of things to see and do and feel we could go back tomorrow.

Very nice Holiday Apartment with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We rate this accommodation with 5 stars!! We stayed in the Cardellino Apartment for 8 nights in September. As we arrived, the welcome by Carolyn and Joe was very hearty. They have shown us the garden, swimming pool and the Cardellino Apartment. The Apartment is styled in a very nice way, well equipped, very clean and the whole house is very well maintained. Very nice garden with a beautiful (almost private) swimming pool. We were invited for a drink the first evening, to get to know each other a little bit. We liked that very much. We had some good advice for trips and nice restaurants. We recommend these holiday apartments to all the ones, who love to have a real quite accommodation, with all the luxury that its got. We loved to drive to the Sibylline mountains for hiking and mountain biking. But also visit all the nice villages in the environment, as well as the sea. We enjoyed our dinners at Albergo Farfense (Santa Vittoria) and Villa Funari - Country House (Servigliano). And also the days we stayed at Miramonti at the pool. Thanks to Carolyn and Joe we had some wonderfull days. We definitely will visit this accommodation again. Thad and Wilma Gelhard

Superb accommodation in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have returned to Miramonti, as it offers everything we are looking for, while staying in le Marche. Carolyn and Joe have created a lovely base, equipping the apartments with great detail and every comfort. The views are wonderful and the pool area superb. The provided beach equipment and towels are a great bonus, along with a very thoughtful welcome pack of food and wine. Servigliano is a great town with a lively atmosphere in the evenings and many good eating places there and in the surrounding area. Definitely a place to revisit again!

Heerlijk verblijf hier

  • 5 of 5

Wij verbleven hier van 20 t/m 29 mei, een prachtig, comfortabel appartement, brandschoon en vriendelijke en behulpzame eigenaren die Engels en Italiaans spreken. Dat wij pas s,avonds om 11 uur aankwamen was geen enkel probleem en er was gezorgd voor een welkomstpakket met van alles erin, zelfs een fles witte wijn, heerlijk ne een lange reis, deze mensen weten wat gastvrijheid is.Het zwembad is prachtig met een formidabel uitzicht over de heuvels en het Sibillini gebergte, de tuin is een klein paradijs. Le Marche is een prachtige streek met de zee en de bergen op korte afstand , met heerlijke dorpjes en lekker eten en heerlijke wijn voor een paar euro. Lia en Johan

What a beautiful, beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Carolyn & Joe made us feel very welcome and couldn't have been more helpful. The apartment is very well-equipped, with many little extras that make a holiday even better (e.g. chairs to take out for picnics.) The location is superb - wonderful views and a great base to explore the surrounding area from.

From the Owner

We decided to settle here, after spending a few holidays in Central Le Marche getting to know the area well. Although we were looking for seclusion, nature and tranquillity, we wanted our location to be easy to find and relatively close to the airport and motorways. We chose our Villa as soon as we first saw the breath-taking views which really do have the ‘wow’ factor! Our established, lush gardens, the rolling meadows and hills around the Villa, our ancient oaks, the nearby woodlands and magnificent hill-top towns across the valley of the River Tenna, with the backdrop of the Sibillini Mountain range over which the sun sets – all convinced us that this is a magical and unique spot and we never tire of the landscape and the nature that surrounds us!

‘Miramonti’ means ‘Mountain Views’ in Italian – and we are indeed surrounded by magnificent, panorama! From our beautiful gardens & pool you can enjoy the glorious open views towards the magnificent Sibillini Mountains National Park, just 20km away. Our location is ideal for both Culture & Relaxation; medieval hilltop villages, archaeological sites, churches & museums, together with lively seaside towns and excellent restaurants offering a unique holiday mix!

Our Villa is in the Province of Fermo with its rolling hills, lakes & woods in the stunning countryside of central Le Marche. It stands secluded within 1.5 hectares of meadows and south-facing landscaped gardens full of olive and fruit trees. We are 350m above sea level, on a hillside hidden away at the end of a quiet leafy lane just 1.5km from the little village of Curetta, 6km from the lovely neoclassical town of Servigliano with its beautiful piazza, shops, bars & restaurants and 5km from the medieval hill town of Santa Vittoria in Matenano. Every Monday during the summer, in Servigliano, there is a lovely night market. Also in Servigliano, the 'Torneo of Castel Clementino' re-evokes the lost Medieval period; locals parade and feast in period costume, colourful cultural events culminate in a spectacular tournament on horseback.

You can explore the region’s towns and villages from your holiday base at Villa Miramonti following the many excellent routes and circular drives or cycle routes. Our three main provincial towns - all have historical centres, piazzas, churches, museums, restaurants & markets easily explored on foot with parking easy to find: Macerata, Fermo and Ascoli Piceno, with one of the most elegant piazzas in Italy. All of the surrounding little hill towns have a weekly market. Every Thursday evening, in Fermo during the summer, there is an outdoor antiques market with lovely little restaurants serving dinner on balconies overlooking the square. Macerata, famous for its outdoor Opera House (the Sferisterio), also has a lovely street market every Wednesday. Many world famous designers manufacture their products here in Le Marche and you can find amazing bargains in shoes, bags, knitwear and other garments at astonishing reductions in the outlet shops towards the coast.

The blue-flagged sandy beaches of the warm Adriatic are within 30km with charming seaside resorts and excellent seafood restaurants. Porto San Giorgio, Grottamare, San Benedetto del Tronto all have lovely palm tree lined promenades and marinas. Many smaller inland towns have ‘Orange Flag’ quality awards from the Touring Club of Italy - Montelupone, Urbisaglia, Sarnano, Caldarola & San Ginesio. The archaeological park of Urbs Salvia is impressive; Falerone, Macerata, & Ancona have many Roman ruins & artefacts. The great Cistercian abbey, the Abbadia di Fiastra, is nearby with guided tours available and the Tolentino Basilica has a magnificent cycle of early 14thcentury frescoes. A little further away, San Severino, Camerino, Cingoli and Loreto may be of interest and you could also explore Urbino and even Assisi, Florence and Siena.

There are some short walks with views from Villa Miramonti along paths and quiet asphalt roads around Curetta, pleasant for early morning or evening strolls. Other circular trails with good views and with nearby restaurants, are found around Monte San Martino, Lago San Ruffino, Smerillo and the Abbadia di Fiastra Nature Reserve, a short drive away. Going further afield, the Golle dell' Infernaccio waterfalls, footpaths and quiet beaches around Lake Fiastra and nature trails to the caves of the Fratti are spectacular. There are many well marked walks within the Sibillini National Park of varying lengths and degree of difficulty; maps and information are available from the National Park. For the more adventurous, a wide range of activities awaits: walking or hiking, cycling, horse riding, kayaking & paragliding, as well as skiing in the winter!

From the Owner

Our two holiday apartments, within the Villa, combine style and comfort in a stunning rural location with a beautiful pool and gardens that have fantastic all-round panoramic views. You can also enjoy these views and the tranquillity from the privacy of your balcony or terrace, day or night. As we only have two holiday apartments, there is plenty of space to find a peaceful spot and the pool will always be quiet. Whilst we always respect your privacy, we are happy to assist you during your stay; to recommend and book a restaurant, to advise about days out or events etc. The Villa’s hillside position is quiet and tranquil, yet is close to the lovely and lively neo-classical town of Servigliano, with its shops, market and elegant piazza where we can enjoy a restaurant meal or a coffee, ice cream or an aperitivo. Also, being situated between the Sibillini National Park and the Adriatic coast, we are ideally positioned to get the best of both! You can be as active or relaxed here as you wish! It's this unique mix that makes holidaying here so special.
