About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6, Private garden, Underground parking, Air Con

This is a new, gated, private community with staff looking after the gardens, tennis court and swimming pool.

We have a private decked garden with dining furniture for at least six people or a tiled terrace if you prefer for your al fresco dining. We have air conditioning and heating. The kitchen is very modern with stainless steel work surfaces and high tech appliances for all your cooking and laundry needs.

Tennis racquets and balls are provided.

English speaking help is only a phone call away.

There are two amazing restaurants within a two minute walk. Da Gustin, offers, in our opinion, Michelin Star quality food at reasonable prices, not to be missed!

A five minute walk takes you to the local Spa that offers almost everything from Massage to Reiki, Manicure, Pedicure and more.

Fano is just 20 minutes away by car where you can find a marina, public and private beaches.

Shopping here is very good with many excellent boutiques and a weekly market.

Overall disappointing

  • 1 of 5

Having arrived at the apartment after the time we had arranged, we were told that it was still being cleaned, as the previous renters had only just vacated the apartment, and it wouldn't be ready for another hour and a half. When we eventually got in, the oven had food remains in it, there was rotten food remains in one of the cupboards and the fridge door was broken, The glass shower sliding door came of its runner and fell on my son as he was having a shower. This could have been very dangerous if he had been a small child (this has been an ongoing problem for some years as this had been mentioned numerous times in the Guest comments book at the apartment).

The keys to the apartment have to be collected from a local restaurant owner who has no responsibilities for any maintenance required at the apartment. If any issue arises, then basically you are on your own.

We emailed the owner about these issues but got no response during our stay.

Overall, the location of Casa Serafini is excellent if you want to get away from it all, but the apartment itself appears to have been kept on the rental market without being properly maintained to the standard that it should be, considering how much it is to stay there.

If you do decide to stay there, then make sure that any faults/problems/issues with the apartment are noted (take pictures on your arrival and departure) to avoid any misunderstandings when getting back your security deposit.

Owner's Response: Firstly,we do ongoing maintenance. The fridge door is not broken. The previous guest must have leant on it and it has to be adjusted by Oikos. This is being done. The shower door has been fixed twice. Some people can't tell the difference between slide and push. A new door has been fitted. We apologise for the apartment not being up to our usual standard. After speaking to Virginio who was terribly embarrassed we realised that it was due to the late leaving of the previous guests who particularly untidy. Aldo

An amazing property in stunning landscape

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Casa Serafini - a beautiful, well appointed property in a serene development and idyllic location. The views of the surrounding countryside are out of this world and the pool is just perfect! We would recommend this property to any one searching for utter relaxation. The local restaurant 'Da Gustin' has to rate as one of our most enjoyable meals ever. The setting, hospitality and indeed the food are all exceptional. The whole rental experience was extremely positive and friendly, from initial inquiry through to the warm welcome on arrival. We can't thank Aldo and Emily enough for renting out their lovely home and we will be booking again soon. The McWilliams Family

A great stay with thanks

  • 5 of 5

We were so delighted with Casa Serafini. It was nice and bright inside, beautifully clean with superb accommodation, a comfy bed, well equipped kitchen and even dvd's for night time viewing. We played tennis and enjoyed the quiet of the lovely site and walks and drives in the countryside and local villages. Quite beautiful. Even in october we had great weather. Many thanks to Aldo and Emily and we will certainly be going back!

Marche is an amazing combination of beautiful rolling countryside, mountain ranges, woodland, ancient hilltop villages, stunning coastline and beautiful cities.

Marche offers the traveller a wealth of culture, art, crafts, excellent local cuisine and beautiful scenery.

Being fairly undiscovered you will rarely be faced with the crowds now associated with the tourist sites of Tuscany.

The list of villages, towns and cities worth seeing is endless where you can visit the numerous historic attractions or simply roam the narrow streets and beautiful piazzas.

For the traveller who simply enjoys soaking up the local atmosphere Marche is certainly the place. For those wishing to take part in more energetic activities the region offers it all - skiing, walking, golf, aqua parks, tennis, horse riding, twin-engine go karting, quad biking, hot air ballooning, fishing, sailing and scuba diving.

Golf: The nearest golf can be found just 12km away in Fano at Montegiove Golf

Club & Country House. Offering a driving range, putting green and pitch and

putt course, Montegiove Golf Club is in an ideal setting.

For those more serious golfers just 50 km away in Sirolo is the 18-hole

Conero Golf Club, and in the other direction the 18-hole course a Rimini and

the Camerata Picena Mia Golf Club near Ancona.
