About the property

Town House in Delightful medieval village San Ginesio, Le Marche, - Restaurants & shops the perfect base to explore coast and mountains

Casa delle Mure is situated on the 11th century walls of beautiful San Ginesio with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside from the terrace and all the windows. San Ginesio is a delightful medieval town with restaurants, bars, banks and all essential shops and the central piazza is only a 2 minute stroll from our house & free car park opposite. Public outdoor swimming pool (summer only)a few minutes walk away, tennis courts and public gardens. Ideally situated for both the magnificent Sibillini National Park and the golden Adriatic coast. The Sibillini Mountains are the most striking mountains in the Apennines; in the summer you can swim in Lago Fiastra and in the winter you can ski at Sarnano. This wonderful area includes the outdoor opera at Macerata, so many delightful medieval towns to explore, and shopping for Italian shoes and bags!! Boutiques, markets and at the factory outlets near Civitanova Marche. Don't miss the Palio in San Ginesio on 15th august it is amazing!

About Judith

We are John and Judith and live in rural Northumberland where we run our own business developing and making Eco friendly products for home and family. We sell our products via our website and to trade customers. From laundry, cleaning, room fragrances to skin care for the whole family. We are now expanding our Trade sales into Europe. We lived in Umbria for nearly 8 years and returned to the UK in 2000 for family reasons. But we missed the Italian way of life and in 2004 we bought our apartment in San Ginesio. We don't have the time to visit our apartment as often as we would like but as our business grows in Europe we plan to divide our time between Northumberland and San Ginesio. We love the Italian way of life and San Ginesio is a special place.

Judith purchased this house in 2005

Why Judith chose Macerata

When we were ready to buy a property in Italy we decided to look in Le Marche region as we feel that Umbria had become more comercialised and Le Marche still retains the traditional family environment - much like Umbria was 15 years ago. We visited and read about the region, and eventually decided to look at an area around Amandola as it had both easy access to the coast and wonderful countryside. We planned our house buying visit thoroughly making appointments each day for the first week with 5 different estate agents leaving the 2nd week free for second visits. Having lived in Umbria we knew the problems associated with buying a remote property and spiralling costs of full renovation projects. When we first walked into the apartment at San Ginesio, we both immediately said 'this is it'.

What makes this house unique

It is great to know that you don't have to go out in the car everyday - daily shopping, banking, bars and restaurants all within a few minutes walk. The shopkeepers and bar owners are very welcoming and make you feel at home. During the summer months there are outdoor concerts and festas with the wonderous Palio on the 15th August. Jousting, flags, drums and costumes which goes on all through the day and into the evening. The house is built into the ancient city walls and all the windows and the private terrace look out onto the Sybillini mountains. There is a large free car park adjacent to the house - quiet. We have left available TV, books and games, music, maps and information about places to visit and great restaurants and hope you love it as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location, San Ginesio is glorious with good restaurants and shops. The beaches are beautiful, we have had a wonderful holiday. Bernadette Gregory from Australia.



"Amazing accommodation in beautiful location"

I was wowed by the house itself, since it's built into the medieval town wall. It is very spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed for our short stay. San Ginesio is a lovely town which had great restaurants, friendly locals (even though we can't speak Italian!) and a variety of small grocery shops. I especially enjoyed the cheap wine and Italian cheeses! It's perfect for a quiet relaxing break and also comfortable enough for a longer stay to further explore the area.



Stunning location and a true Italian experience"

This house at San Ginesio allows you to become quickly absorbed into the Italian culture. The scenery is stunning and the location is steeped in history,

Wonderful accommodation in a delightful location.

  • 5 of 5

Casa delle Mure provided us with very comfortable and spacious accommodation and all our needs (including a very welcome cool box!) for a fantastic holiday in medieval San Ginesio. The mountain views from the windows set in the town walls and from the terrace, were spectacular. After long days out exploring the area, we were happy to return "home" to San Ginesio, wander a few steps to the Central Piazza, buy a delicious ice cream and walk to the Park to view the mountains. We were fortunate to be provided with evening entertainment during the Palio by drumming parades, jousting and video mapping of the beautiful Collegiate Church. Friendly locals served us in the grocery shops, butchers and greengrocers. We are still missing the gentle hum of life of the Piazza and would love to return. There is so much more to see.
