About the Owner

We feel in love with the area when visiting it back in 2005 and decided to buy a derelict house to restore it over a few years. We spend a lot of time and research on getting it back to its former glory - using old building practises and materials from the area.

THe purpose of the house is to get away from it all - we have a hectic working life and we were looking for a place to escape...

We got married on the premises in 2007 - the place was finished only hours earlier!

Lovely house, finished to high standard with lots of space

Outdoor Pizza oven was great - especially if you light it well in advance.

Lago fiastra is beautiful to visit as well as local towns/restaurants.

Beautiful villa - great pool, views and garden!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay here and we have booked to go back next year! The villa is beautiful and has all mod. cons. The pool and garden are large and wonderful for children. The house has been beautifully restored - it is a wonderful house in which to relax. It is a short drive to San Ginesio. The hosts are efficient and helpful.

We had a wonderful, relaxing time at Casa Colette. The villa is beautiful with everything you need. The pool was great and kept the children entertained. San Ginesio was a beautiful little village - great places to eat. My daughters want to score it 6 stars! They are missing Charlie and Guiseppe the dogs !

Welcoming and spacious holiday home in Le Marche

  • 5 of 5

The house has been lovingly restored to a comfortable and restful holiday villa. Our week was over all too quickly and we'll make plans to visit again. The house is spacious, rooms have great beds and plenty of storage space. Multiple bathrooms and a kitchen with everything you will need to live the Italian life. The pool is fabulous, clean and uses a salt filtration meaning the water is not chlorinated and easy on the eyes and skin. Sitting round the pool, hours slip past without you noticing. Charlie the dog may make an appearance, a friendly dog looking for hugs and treats, if he likes you he'll stick around. Watch for the fireflies and bats at night.

San Ginesio and Sarnano are wonderful to visit, try out your Italian and you'll receive much warmer service. The pizzas in the square in San Ginesio are wonderful, and you can buy their homemade pasta to cook at home. If you fancy a pleasant walk, Abbadia d'Fiastra about 15 mins drive away is a must.

The owners are friendly and helpful, the whole process and accomodation are highly recommended.

Wonderful holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property, really well maintained and furnished to a high standard but with a very homely feel. Owners and property manager extremely helpful and nice to deal with. There is so much to see and do in local area. Would love to visit this part of Italy in the future and would definitely stay at property again.

From the Owner

The area is a very unspoilt part of Italy - moutains with ski lift in the winter, hiking and mountain biking in the summer. Very Italian with few international tourists keeps the area authentic. Very reasonably priced restaurants with local foods and wine. Easy reach of the beach and seafood restaurants. Loads of small festivals going on in the summer and the italians are very friendly.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Ancona or Perugia at 100 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Ancona at 100 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Conero Island at 80 Kilometres Nearest Train : Civitanova Marche at 45 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A14 - motorway at 40 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Civitanova Marche at 45 Kilometres Car: necessary

Special interest holidays:

Monti Sibillini for walking, trekking, mountain-biking and hangliding. Guided visits to the park must be booked in advance in the summer months. They provide 4 different themed itineraries - exploring the themes of history, flowers, magic and religion in the park. You can tour the park by car, bike, or on foot, whichever suits the place you are visiting. There are 14 circular routes in the Monti Sibillini, each of which can be walked in a day, and the Great Ring by mountain bike, which can be comfortably completed in 4 or 5 days. The durations given in the guide, longer than strictly necessary to complete the routes, invite you to put away the stopwatch and synchronize your pedal cycles with those of the natural environment, which varies with each change of gear and season. The challenge, therefore, is to tackle ascents and descents to test your physical aptitude.


The Adriatic coast and its beaches are a 40 min drive away, with the beaches of Civitanova marche, San Elpidio are Mare and Porto San Giorgio. A little bit further afield are the beaches of the Conero island, such as Numana and Porto Nuovo. The Marche has got over 100km of coastline, with too many beaches to mention.


Ancona airport is 1.5hour drive and Pescara at 2 hours, with both airports being serviced by Ryanair. There are also flights to Perugia, 1.5 hours from the house, and flights to Bologna Forli, also serviced by Ryanair. Ancona airport is also serviced by Lufthansa , germanwings and Alitalia. A car is essential, as the area is rural and the public transport network very Italian....


San Ginesio 5km, Sarnano 9km, Macerata 15km, Monti Sibillini 5km. There are plenty of unspoilt little villages in the area. 90% of the Italian shoe industry is in Le Marche, and the area is plentyful of outlets. The villa has a comprehensive list of local attractions.

Further Details:

San Ginesio has got 2 banks, supermarkets, a greengrocer's and a wonderful old square with the Bar centrale and a good pizza place. Restaurants are plentiful in the area, serving local dishes and regional wines. The area is very reasonably priced. We keep a guidebook with leaflets for our clients and descriptions to the best restaurants in the area. Visit the various websites for more information.

From the Owner

Total relaxation - whether by the pool or in front of the fireplace. The property is an easy 5 minutes drive - or a challening 40 minutes walk uphill - from San Ginesio. Very rustic appeal from the outside but contemporary on the inside with a very well equipped kitchen. The infinity pool is unique in the area - it is now a salt water pool which is so much kinder to the skin. Plenty of books, an XBOX and a WII will keeps kids busy on a rainy day - not that you have them often! My husband loves his lawn, so with an expensive sprinkler system installed we ensure you always have a lush green lawn!
