About Daniel Jennings

We are Daniel, Candida, Elettra (12), Achille (11) and Atena Jennings (9). We moved from the London (UK) to Italy in 2001, deciding it was a better place to start a family and change our way of life.

We decided to live in a rural area of Italy and after viewing this property in Le Marche, we instantly fell in love with it, the location, the views and outstanding beauty of this region.

The large restoration project started back in 2000 and we restored an 18th century Farmhouse, whilst during the same period we also demolished and re-built the Cottage and Barn during a five year period.

Since 2006 we have been offering to large groups a fantastic Idyllic holiday location, taking great care of groups of all ages and ensure our guests get the very most from a Le Marche holiday experience.

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

Whilst live on site, away from the farmhouse, it is fenced for guests privacy and we deal with the property up keep, grounds and pool maintenance, making sure the property is always found at its best and your stay is problem free.

Since the purchase in 2001, we have planted over 4000 trees all around the property, thus creating a natural and peaceful oasis, for all age groups to enjoy, run around or just relax in this rural retreat.

Whilst we continue, year after year to improve the grounds, gardens and maintain the facilities in perfect order. We take great pride in what we do and strive to ensure guests have a memorable experience.

Contact us at Villa Pomegranate to discover this beautiful hide away, in the fantastic and breathtaking region of 'Le Marche', Italy.

Daniel Jennings purchased this villa in 2000

Why Daniel Jennings chose Ponzano di Fermo

The great point is it is hidden away yet close to everything, just 15-20 minutes from the coast and 30 minutes from the foot of the mountains. We fell in love with the area and particularly the position of the farmhouse, with panoramic views from the hilltop location over looking rolling hills and the mountains.

The villa is very close to a great selection of local shops just 1.5km away where guests can buy local produce, visit the bakery for fresh bread and find a great selection of local cheeses, cured meats, wines and fresh produce. We also indicate where you can buy direct for the wineries, cheese farms, meat farms and also sell our own organic olive oil.

Whilst there are many local markets and 'sagre', similar to ‘fates/events’ that are linked to local traditions and culture, that always offer great Italian food. Again we can make suggestions should you wish to know what’s going on and where.

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 in case of an earthquakes.

The area offers a vast array of leisure activities to all ages, from walking, nature trails, hiking, horse riding (all levels) with trekking/trail riding, coastal activities i.e wind surfing & sailing courses.

Whether you are planning to holiday together with friends or plan a family reunion, a birthday party or anniversary then note we can also offer catering services, home cooked Italian food and make your group holiday a memorable event. For example, we can offer for a delicious daily breakfast service or tasty Italian menus.

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 be alone & enjoy the unspoilt surroundings.

The panoramic pool area is nestled on the highest terrace, surrounded by beautiful gardens and olives, with a large covered pergola to escape the heat. We have purchased high quality pool chairs for guests comfort and this area is cleaned and the pool checked daily.

The swimming pool is a salt water pool, which guests love, because it is very sweet on your skin, no red eyes and always crystal clear water. The pool is built and finished to public level standards, with two pumps and two filters to ensure perfect water and hygiene standards.

Complimentary Wi-Fi internet access, all around the property, with three wi-fi access points.

Furthermore, 8 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 also has automated electronic gates, ensuring guests undisturbed privacy & safety.

Whether you are getting married, taking your summer holiday or short break, this is a fantastic location is available throughout the year.

Villa Pomegranate is a great group property, which has been lovingly restored and always very well maintained.

In the Winter months, from October till April, the property accommodates groups of 20 guests who can use the large converted barn.

The big main room of 100 sq.m and recently installed wood burner (wood provided free of charge)

There is also a large fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom. So groups staying at the villa during this period can enjoy using this open plan space.

Furthermore the barn is ideal for parties and events, yet only during this period.

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

  • 5 of 5

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

The self catering holiday accommodation is ideally located close to two small towns, yet offers complete privacy in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The holiday villa's hilltop location offers great uninterrupted views.

The big farmhouse is close to Grottazzolina, Fermo and the Adriatic riviera, with many sandy blu flag beaches. From rocky coves to long stretches of sandy coastline, you will find excellent fish restuarants, interesting ports and towns to visit close by.

Porto San Giorgio is highly recommend to visit and is just 20 mins away.

Fermo's summer evening markets are also a must to do.

Distances from the villa

2-5 mins - 3/4 Local villages and 2/3 supermarkets;

2-5 mins - to a variety of restaurants and pizzerias;

10 mins - Large hypermarket, outlets and shops;

15 mins - Fermo, Petritoli and Montottone;

20 mins - Adriatic coast & sandy beaches in Porto San Giorgio;

30 mins - San Benedetto (The Palm Riviera);

40 mins - Lakes and Amandola;

45 mins - Conero nature reserve with beautiful beaches

50 mins - Mountains and national park. Extraordinary panoramic views and landscapes are certainly worth the short drive.

60 mins - Ancona airport

Other activities locally: MTB tracks, hill walking, hiking, go-karting circuit, motor cross circuit, kite surfing and many other beach activities.

There are two national parks and 3 nature reserves to discover and explore throughout the year, you can enjoy walking & hiking routes, climbing, mountain biking, fishing, golf, quad biking, hand gliding amongst many other activities.

Local information is prrvided at the villa.

Whilst there are many fantastic hilltop villages to explore, perfect just to walk around and admire, taking a coffee or ice cream on the way round.

For best ice cream in town, then we highly recommend 'Amati' in Porto San Giorgio.

Le Marche offers so much to see and do throughout the summer in an endless array of free local fates (Sagre) and festivals where you can taste and get to know the real Italy's culture, traditions and history.

Locals are very friendly and love children. Guests will certainly feel and be very welcome where ever they go, but especially families with children.

Le Marche is Italy all in one region!
