About Martin O'Brien

We are an English couple from Kent who fell in love with Italy several years ago.

Martin O'Brien purchased this villa in 2004

Why Martin O'Brien chose Fermo

Following extensive research we visited Marche one weekend with a view to deciding if this was the area we would like to buy a holiday home in. We arrived in the dark in January, when we woke the following morning we opened the shutters and at once fell in love with the stunning scenery. These feelings were consolidated further as we explored the area, sampled the food and were welcomed by the locals. Time has stood still in Marche with its medieval villages old fashioned culture and total peace and quiet. Casa Aurelio was the fourth house we viewed and although it was little more than a pile of stones we warmed to it immediately knowing that this house on the hill with the stunning views was our perfect haven. We brought it that weekend.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Aurelio stands proud with uninterrupted views of the countryside offering the tranquility and charm of an authentic country farmhouse. A total away from it all experience yet with the convenience of a village a short walk away and easy access to both the mountains and the sea. The sunrise is stunning and to stand on the terrace at night and see the brightest stars is absolutely magical.

Peaceful with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely relaxing time, our first visit to Itlay, breathtakingly beautiful area, friendly locals and lots of towns to visit. Casa Aurelio was very well stocked and we enjoyed using the pool and looking out at the views. Recommend a visit to Lake Fiastra and Ascoli Piceno. I'm sure we will all be back to Italy again.

What an amazing place. Our first family holiday to Italy. We loved the area. The views from the villa are outstanding. The restaurant in Monteleone di Fermo is very welcoming and again has amazing views. We found local prices to be very reasonably. The home owner was very prompt in responding to any email queries and the house manager and his wife were very welcoming and helpful with a great knowledge of the local area. The villa had everything we could have wished for and a good kitchen should you wish to cook. We had a very happy holiday - thank you.

Absolutely stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday at Casa Aurelio, family of 2 adults and 2 teens. The location is beautiful, with stunning panoramic views at every turn. The property has been very sympathetically restored and feels like it has been totally unchanged for hundreds of years, apart from the welcome contemporary touches of bathroom, ensuite and kitchen of course! There is ample outside space for dining or relaxing, lovely pool and plenty of sun loungers.The owner was very pleasant to deal with, and the property manager at the location went out of his way to help us. We ate out every night and found prices to be very reasonable. In particular, the restaurant in the village at the top of the hill, although mainly a pizza/pasta place, is worth a visit for the glorious view from the terrace.

A fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and well presented. We were greeted by the managers who gave us a very thorough briefing. There was a small welcome pack - which was very nice - but given the distance from the supermarkets it would have been good to have enough to get us through the first evening. The pool was perfect for our needs. The local restaurant was good and the shops and facilities in Servigliano easily supplied everything we needed. A car is essential and a smattering of Italian a big advantage. This is not a very touristy area and many of the local shopkeepers do not speak English - not a problem in a supermarket where you can just load the trolley up without speaking. The Festa in Servigliano was a real treat - if you can come during that week I strongly recommend you see the drumming and flag throwing competition. Days out into the mountains are easy and well worth the drive (just over an hour) as is a visit to some of the other Marche beauty spots eg Loretto. The hill top villages are fantastic places to visit. Would love to come back. Very limited internet, which suited us, could be a problem for some. cafes and bars in Servigliano are happy to let you use their wifi for free.

Perfect Getting-Away-From-It-All Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We, two adults and two children, had a fantastic week at Casa Aurelio. From every window an amazing view of the Le Marche countryside is framed: hills; mountains; hilltop villages; fields of sunflowers; olive groves and vineyards. Definitely the nicest villa we have visited in Le Marche. Highlights for us included watching the house martins drinking from the pool in the late afternoon, having the time to catch up with reading, discovering great places to eat locally and our nightly game of Balderdash (board games, books, maps, guides provided by the owners!). We had fantastic weather but didn't overheat due to the lovely breeze and plenty of fans in the villa. We had a really chilled out holiday, but equally could have spent time hiking/cycling/seeking out culture had we chosen to do so! We thoroughly recommend Casa Aurelio.
