A large one bedroom apartment - 15 mins from beach and 40 mins from mountains.
A unique fully modernised apartment with vaulted ceilings, beautiful views, amazing kitchen and bathroom. Sits within the vaults of Palazzo Scarsini in the medieval hilltop village of Petritoli. Lovely restaurants, cafes and shops an easy walk away.The beach is a 15 minute drive away and the Sibillini mountains and national park are only 40 minutes drive. A truly unique village location in Le Marche.
This is a unique space, an apartment created out of fully renovated and modernised 15th century vaults. Over 80 square meters of open space with amazing views and a wonderful, serene feel. A fully equipped modern kitchen and beautifully appointed bathroom, with large walk in shower, will make your stay very comfortable. Underfloor heating throughout make this an ideal location for winter and summer stays.
There is an amazing array of historic buildings and piazza to be found when exploring Petritoli. Four churches, a restored Civic Tower (with viewing terrace), a small theatre and tranquil historic cemetery to name but a few.
Three Arches, anchored by 15th century turrets, dramatically form the entrance to the village, a welcome sight on arrival.
The day starts with elderly inhabitants meandering to morning mass, beckoned by the church bells. The local cafes, busy with people grabbing their early morning coffee and pastry before work, the sound of shutters opening, the beginning of another day.
The two bars in the village offer different experiences, from the hustle and bustle of Bar Gelateria Tre Archi, home to amazing artisan made ice cream, to the lovely garden at the front of Fanny's Bar, where you can while away the long summer evenings.
We love that so many people walk through a piazza and not drive, giving time for one another to greet each other and stop for a gossip.
The local shop owners greet you warmly and are ready to entice you with your favourite foods! The local produce is a real treat for those that love to cook with fresh ingredients and often grown in the surrounding valleys.
Everything goes quiet over the very important part of the day, lunchtime, where you have a great choice of cafés and restaurants, another great advantage of living in a village, its never far to go for great food and company!
Choice for dinner is excellent, with three highly regarded restaurants (Ristorante Re Squarchio, Osteria della Cornacchie & Ristorante Roma), Pizzeria 'Girasole', and an Enoteca 'Anti-Sociale' all within easy walking distance of the Apartment. The quality of the Petritoli restaurants is remarkable for such a small community but not surprising when you consider the Italians love of food.
The local theatre, Teatro dell'Iride, is very professional and puts on some great operatic productions and musicians from all over the world arrive each year to compete in an international oboe competition. It has been beautifully restored over the years and has also become a venue for many weddings, especially from overseas.
You can partake in any one of the numerous summer festivals and markets held in the main Piazza or just sit in one of the bars, sipping a glass of prosecco watching the world go by.
The Apartment is situated in a prominent position on the south side of this medieval Village, on top of a panoramic hill, 350m above sea level, benefiting from amazing views to the Adriatic Sea and Sibillini mountains.
Due to this position overlooking the Valdaso valley, Petritoli is referred to as the 'Balcone sulla Valdaso' - the Balcony of the Valdaso!

About Michael Hobbs
Outgoing, successful, adventurous man with a big family and a big heart. Love to laugh.
I enjoy meeting new people and will ensure you have the best possible time in this beautiful, historic village - in the part of Italy the locals refer to as "all of Italy wrapped up in this one beautiful region"!
We are blessed with amazing architecture, easy access to both sea and mountains, a diverse range of incredible restaurants and some of the best wine, olive oil, ice cream and fresh food in the world. Le Marche is unspoilt and authentic, not overrun with tourists.
We have business interests in the UK and Italy and you will find out more about us by visiting
