About the Owner

Ciao! we are Henry and Charlie, the owners of Casa Carlotta. We have lived worked and raised our family in London for the past 35years.

Henry ran a Financial Services Co for many years which he sold a few years ago.

I am a Ceramic Artist making hand built sculptures for the home and garden, and a Co Director of a Cafe/Bar.

When we are not busy in London we try and spend as much time as possible at our property in Italy. Maybe one day we end up living out there who knows! 🌻🌻🌞

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and friends spent a fantastic fortnight at Casa Carlotta in August this year - the weather was great! What a comfortable, spacious and stylish property in the heart of the beautiful Italian countryside. The huge farmhouse is well equipped inside and out for a most relaxing and comfortable holiday - we really felt that we had a taste of living in the Italian style! The local restaurants which were recommended by the owners were superb and good value, not to mention the wonderful Verdicchio wine! We would love to return to this property and continue our exploration of this area - there is so much more to see and do! Marie and Iain.

"A fantastic house in a fantastic location!"

We stayed at Casa Carlotta for one week, fantastic house, with nice contemporary furniture and fully equipped and is situated in the enchanting rolling hills of Le Marche. it has a wonderful garden with lots of places to relax, and a great pool. The region is more than worth exploring. Inge & Werner.

Just as good as we remembered

  • 5 of 5

We had our second stay at the beautiful Casa Carlotta this summer. Read the description about the property and just dream yourself there. It is as good as it says. We love the design and spaciousness of the house and large garden. It has everything you could wish for and the pool is perfect. It is beautifully maintained and it is easy to summon help or advice if you need it. The nearby towns and villages are each delightful and interesting in their own right. Cingoli Lake and a drive south to Ascoli and Loreto or north to Urbino were well worth the drive. Fields of sunflowers, vines and golden corn bathed in daylong sunshine added the enjoyment of outdoor eating and total relaxation. We have already booked for a third stay, hoping more of our family get a chance to join us this time.

Owner's Response: Ciao! Thank you so much for your great review of Casa Carlotta and the surrounding area. It is wonderful when guests come to us, fall in love with the area and then return the next summer for more of the same! There are so many hidden gems in Le Marche and even after owning our home here for over 10 years we are still discovering new treasures every time we are here. Look forward to welcoming you and your family again in 2017. Best wishes Charlie & Henry 🌞🇮🇹🌻

From the Owner

Part of Henry's family were originally from this area of Le Marche, his grandmother lived in a village not far from our property and he had spent many happy holidays here as a boy. We brought our own children here for many great family holidays during their childhood & so the dream of owning a property in Italy began. After quite a search we finally found Casa Carlotta & suddenly it was a reality! something we had only dreamt of during the long grey London winters!. We both love the area surrounding the house with its beautiful green rolling hills & medieval towns such as Cingoli & Osimo. Other plus factors for us are the easy access to the airport only half an hour away & also access to the lovely town of Jesi for shopping, restaurants etc & the beaches on the Conero Coast not far away.

From the Owner

We have spent much time renovating the interior of house to make it a comfortable, relaxing place to stay, with all the facilities needed to enjoy a great family holiday. Outside there is the original wood burning pizza oven and BBQ and the mature garden has many lovely trees such as mulberry, plums, figs, olives, bay and walnuts. In 2009 our 10x4m private swimming pool and shower was completed which was a very exciting addition to the garden. The local vineyard 5 mins drive away is a great place to sample & buy local wines & olive oil. Henry and I speak Italian and English and we'd be more than happy to discuss the other pleasures of a holiday in this region can hold with you. It is really a magical place to explore. We look forward to speaking with you soon! Henry and Charlie.

There are wooden sun loungers to relax on poolside and many shady areas & hammocks in the trees to chill out in, also plenty of space for children to play. Eating lunch or dinner alfresco on the terrace with a glass or two of the local wine from the cantina up the road is one of the many pleasures of a summer holiday here.There are lights around the garden so it's perfect for a leisurely BBQ after a long day at the beach.
