About Daniel Jennings

We are Daniel, Candida, Elettra (9), Achille (7) and Atena Jennings(4). We moved from the UK to Italy in 2001, deciding it was a better place to start a family and change our way of life. Since then we haven't looked back.

We offer guests a friendly and professional service, helping each group with local information and general holiday advice i.e: best places to eat out, food shopping, local places of interest, markets, sagra's (fates) and great local beaches. There are giudes and info at the villa.

We live on site, away from the farmhouse, which is fenced for guests privacy. We deal with property up keep, grounds and pool maintenance, making sure the property is always kept at it's best and your stay is problem free.

You'll have a memorable stay at Villa Pomegranate

Daniel Jennings purchased this villa in 2000

Why Daniel Jennings chose Ponzano di Fermo

We fell in love with the area and particularly the panoramic views from the hilltop location, with the back drop of the mountains. The villa is very close to local shops just 1.5km away, but at the same time we are away from the crowds. The position of the house offers guests complete privacy and benefits from all modern comforts you will need. The property has been restored to a high standard and maintains all original features, brick work, oak beams and terracotta tiles. Where possible we reclaimed original materials and reused them in the restoration process. At the same time the property has been restored to tight public building regulations and standards against earthquakes. The Adriatic coast is just 20 mins away, where as the mountains and national park are a 40 minute drive.

What makes this villa unique

The villa & wedding venue offers guests many outside areas, covered during the summer months, for everyone to enjoy & perhaps escape to find their own corner when wishing to relax & enjoy the unspoilt view. The property offers complimentary Wi-Fi internet accessed all around the property, with an extra wi-fi access point on the Ground Floor. Furthermore, 9 out of 10 bedrooms have their own bathrooms, which we believe is an added bonus, especially with large groups who have young children. The property has automated electronic gates, ensuring guests undisturbed privacy & safety. Whether you are getting married, taking your summer holiday or short break, this is fantastic location. We offer complete wedding services in Le Marche, a great region which offers so much more than you'll expect.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We found Il Melograno a very relaxing place to stay. All rooms had an en-suite bathroom which was a huge bonus and having young children we liked the fact that the pool was safely tucked away with access only via a gate. The kitchen was amazing – a delight to cook in, as for the views, we spent many calming moments gazing at the mountains and we grew very fond of the farmer on his tractor going up and down the surrounding fields droning like a bee in the distance! Quite the rural retreat.

Yet, just 20 minutes away were the sandy beaches of the Adriatic coast for the children to enjoy, and for us the highlight of our stay was the trip to the mountain villages, just an hour away - and the swim in the fresh water Lake Fiastra. We also had a most enjoyable evening out for some adventurous ‘grown up’ cuisine at the restaurant Il Picene in the hill-top village of Ortezzano, we would highly recommend it when the pizza and pasta gets too much! from Sue and Family.

Beautiful setting for our golden wedding

We had a lovely 2 week holiday at ll Melograno. We are a family of 20 with ages ranging from 2 to 72 and all of us had a fantastic time. The villa was perfect for us and the surrounding countryside very peaceful with magnificent views especially from the pool. Candi and Daniel prepared and served a delicious meal for us on our golden wedding anniversary, it was a perfect evening and one we will all remember. Thank you

Beautiful, relaxing and a real delight!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at Villa Pomegranate celebrating our wedding with our family. It was the most perfect venue! Quiet, spacious and comfortable. The property is beautiful, as are the views. There are so many lovely spots around the villa to relax, socialise or just take in the stunning scenery. The children loved it too...so much space to explore and the pool was enjoyed by all ages! Facilities were fantastic. Everything was well maintained and clean. Daniel and Candida were so helpful and friendly. We are already planning our next visit!

An original og authentic accomodation

  • 4 of 5

We (5 Danish families - 10 yongsters og 10 grown ups) spent the most fantastic summer holiday week at Il Melograna. The picures of the place and its surroundings don´t lie. On the opposite! We found a very special kind of place hidden away on the top of a hill with panoramic view. Obviously, Candy and Daniel have put a lot of energy in making a home for their family and a very authentic accomodation for their guests. Every little detail in the house, the garden and the pool area is thought through with great love and passion for Marche and for the landscape and culture around Il Melograna. The hosts were just "our kind of people": always nearby to help, come up with ideas as what to visit and where to eat. Twice during the week we enjoyed Candy´s excellent Italian cooking skills and Daniels good choices of local wines. If you expect functionality, you will be dissapointed. Il Melograna is renowated, furnished and equipped with a love old and original materials. Except for the bed matresses we found that very charming! Il Melograna is the perfect place if you want to experience the Italian way of life in a part of Italy not very well-known to Northern Europeans. There was plenty of room, hang-outs and "hiding places" for everyone. Beach is only 20 minutes drive away. But we never got to see that much, because everything we nedded was all at Il Melograna!

The setting was quite magical with stunning views across to the Sibillini Mountains, the lush valleys between and the fields of Sunflowers. The accommodation was great, all rooms were ensuite, there were 3 kitchens to choose from and 2 large seating areas outside, one of which had beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. The pool area is slightly raised and again has incredible views. The owner Daniel and his wife Candida were the perfect hosts offering suggestions for local restaurants, night markets and other places of interest. It couldn't have been more perfect
