About the Owner

I've lived in Colmurano for 12 years with my husband and my son of 11 years . Before getting married I 've studied languages at high school and i've lived 6 months in London because I love travel and meet people with different cultures .When I arrived the first time in Colmurano I felt peace and tranquillity inside me. The town of Colmurano is old and very small, but really nice and I really would like to suggest to everybody living in big city to visit it. It is good for the health, because everybody here is calm and they do not feel the stress of the busy and crowded city. All around is nature, and the only sound you can hear is the birds' chirping, (we use to say). Il casale di aurora is all of this, nature and animals with our 2 fantastic and very friendly dogs(Bobo and Lola).

Relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in a picturesque valley with stunning views. The property is shared with the owners who live below in a separate flat. The bedrooms are all ensuite and extremely comfortable. The pool area is nice with an amazing border collie as a lifeguard. Michela cooked some fantastic Italian food and made us feel very welcome, her English is excellent.

Local restaurants were exceptional, beach 35 mins away and fantastic lake 30 mins away. Thoroughly recommend the property, you do need to like dogs as the owners have 2 adorable dogs who are very child friendly. A glimpse of the real Italy !

A very warm welcome

  • 5 of 5

We spent an extremely relaxing at the property. Michela and family were very welcoming and on a couple of evenings cooked fantastic tasty food downstairs that the kids loved just as much as we did. The boys have very happy memories of chasing the fireflies in the garden at night. The views from the property are fantastic. We would definitely go back

Perfect holiday for a family

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Italy in torrential rain with 3 restless, arguing boys (7,8 and 13), a little surprised that our week of guaranteed sunshine was not in evidence! The weather didn't really live up to our expectations but everything else about this property and the holiday exceeded them. Michela and Massimo are charming hosts, their dogs and son were charming friends for our boys and the house was lovely. The bedrooms and en suite bathrooms were smart, spotless and decorated with care and attention to detail. The kitchen was perfect for us, functional and well equipped. The living area was comfy and in the unseasonable cold weather, the heater worked nicely! Massimo brought up a DVD player for our boys in the evenings when it was too wet to stay out by the pool and we played endless games around the kitchen table! The weather did not stop us enjoying the lovely pool and we managed to eat on the lovely veranda! Nearby are some fantastic local eateries, basic but good food and perfect for families. We did some day tips to the beach at Sirolo which was our favourite. The restaurant on the beach was lovely for fish and seafood and the children played on the sandy beach whist we enjoyed a long lunch.

We loved this holiday, weather aside and we are about to email Michela to book again this year!

Excellent !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday with lots of privacy. Very nice house, clean and well maintained. The (fenced) swimming pool was also fantastic especially for ours kids (one of 4 years old and one of 11 years old).

The environment was amazing.

Michela and Massimo (Owners) are very nice,friendly and helpful people with very good tips regarding nice sights, beaches and good restaurants. I certainly recommend this property to friends or relatives.

From the Owner

Before I lived with my husband's family always in Colmurano, but me and my husband wanted something only ours, so we decided to buy this land with an old house.we had to rebuild all the house, we could only salvage stones and old bricks from the old structure and we started to re-make it from the beginning by ourselves, working hard without stopping for 2 years. But now we are really happy and proud of our country house, where you can find your privacy in the middle of the nature, near olives trees and vineyards. But it is also of easy access, only 3 mins driving from the town of Colmurano or 15 mins walking, 20 mins driving from the Sibillini national Park and 30 mins to the coast .It is really located in a good position.During the spring colored flowers are all around in the garden.
