About Michela

I've lived in Colmurano for 15 years with my husband and my son of 13 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 Lola and Marley

Michela purchased this villa in 2006

Why Michela chose Colmurano

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.

What makes this villa unique

Il casale di aurora country house, with its position offers a lot to us and to our guests.Peace and tranquillity out of crowded and noisy city,where relaxing under the sun and in our large pool. No industries near the village but many many trees, so you will have no pollution and good air to breathe. Lots of sports to do and "dolce vita" in this corner of the earth. For those who love peace, tranquility, nature, animals but also to enjoy, this is the right place. For those who love the Typical Italian cooking,we cook typical organic dishes and there are many typical restaurants next to us and many wine cellars.

Il paradiso a portata di mano:

  • 5 of 5

Michela, Massimo e Filippo vi accoglieranno con la loro simpatia facendovi sentire parte della famiglia.Le camere sono confortevoli ed arredate con gusto. Dal casale il panorama è fantastico! Gli amanti dell'archeologia e dell'architettura potranno visitare il sito della città romana di Urbis Salvia e l'abbadia cistercense di Fiastra da cui partono numerosi percorsi percorribili a piedi , in bicicletta e a cavallo.Per gli appassionati di escursioni è possibile andare al lago di Fiastra e raggiungere à piedi le Lame Rosse ed altri percorsi che vi condurranno in luoghi fantastici. Lungo le gole del Fiastrone in estate è possibile camminare sul letto del fiume apprezzando così questi luoghi da punti di vista unici, inusuali. Infine una volta rientrati al casale potrete rilassarvi in piscina godendo dei fantastici tramonti in attesa di degustare le deliziose specialità della cucina marchigiana. Ritornerò volentieri e lo consiglio vivamente !!!

Great place to taste real Italy :)

  • 5 of 5

It was a fantastic stay. We have spent 11 days in Casale di Aurora and loved it. The house is located in a quiet village with great view. The pool is perfect to relax. The house is also a perfect spot for sight seeing, neerby from Fiastra lakes, Assisi, Perugia, Ascoli Piceno, and mny more. Not to mention beautiful beaches of San Benedetto and Sirolo.

The hosts cuisine is just outstanding :) All made of their own crops.

We loved it and will definitelly recommend.

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
