About Carlo Cicconi

I like very much country life with a touch of comfort and pampering. My villa and apartments are immediately your home even if you stay only a week. I like relax and privacy and you will find them. My astrological sign is the Sagittarius; my house is a Sagittarius: open and ready to fly. The sun will welcome you just from the wall of the house. The moon will remember you that the life has a secret side too. I worked hard and I learned that there are other things too: travels, knowledge, life!

Carlo Cicconi purchased this villa in 1990

Why Carlo Cicconi chose Province of Ascoli Piceno

It was a very nice place with a wonderful and relaxing landscape.

What makes this villa unique

I especially enjoyed the atmosphere of the place, I could stay hours outdoor just looking trees and plants or reading beneath olive threes lying on my hammock.

wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

If one seeks to have a wonderful family vacation, then one shall opt for Carlo's villa: impeccably clean, comfortable, kid friendly, with unlimited supply of the first class wine, prepaid places at the beach - everything ones needs to spend time in Italian paradise.

Our group consisted of five kids and six grown ups. Nobody wanted to leave the place after two weeks.

Carlo is a great host, always ready to help and advice.

And finally: Marche is Tuscany with the beautiful sea.

Carlo thank you!

Owner's Response: Ciao Nina, I was very honored to have as my guests and friends you and your group. Having a world star of classical dance and her colleagues in my villa made me realize that the continued efforts to improve the quality of my hospitality were not useless. Thank you Nina, you have been great guests and have become new friends. Nina Ananiashvili has been a ballerina of Bolshoi, Huston Ballet and American Ballet Theater for many years; Guest artist with the New York City Ballet and Danish Dancing Ballet. He has been described by the Daily Telegraph as one of the twelve greatest dancers of all time and in 2002 was nominated Best Dance of the Year by Dance Magazine USA. Since September 2004 he has been artistic director of the National Ballet Ensemble of Georgia. Since 2006, he has acted as the United Nations Ambassador for Good Millennium Development Goals.

Luxury Family Villa, Perfect Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Villa with everything you heart could desire. It is set in the countryside on a vineyard. approx 20 minutes to everything, restaurants, sightseeing, beaches. Extremely hard to find, impossible without GPS! When they say it's the dirt road and villa with no name, they mean it! Carlo and Michela were wondeful to us, they provided everything we needed for this wonderful vacation. There were 6 adults and 6 teenagers and we all had more than enough room! The housekeeper/cook was amazing! The olive oil and wine were more than fantastic! The beach loungers at Grottomare and bicycles on the beach were an added bonus. Couldn't ask for anything more! My only thing that I really disliked was the 2 km, one lane, dusty, pot hole, dirt road leading to the villa on the edge of a cliff. Not for the faint of heart. The cars take a beating to and from. If another car is on the dirt road, one car has to back up to a safe place where they could pass. Would definitely recommend this villa and would love to stay there again! The owner has another villa on the same raod that looks just as beauiful, I believe they are apartments for smaller number of people

The house with no name.

  • 5 of 5

It has to be said that the first time that you drive to the house with no name, you might think that you have taken the wrong turning! The road is a track, but don’t worry, it is being improved! Follow the instructions – you’ll be fine.

Four of us, two couples , rented Carlo’s house this Spring knowing that it would be too big for us, but we liked the look of the place on Owners Direct, and got more information by emailing Carlo. Even his emails have a lovely Italian accent!

The setting of the house is magnificent. Surrounded by picturesque rolling hills, neat vineyards, olive groves and grassland. Every hilltop has a dwelling perched on top: farmhouses, private houses and a few holiday homes. In the distance, the Gran Sasso, a spectacular mountain range, still covered in snow in May, and a wonderful sight at dawn and dusk.

A fresh country loaf, a whole local cheese and a cold bottle of Prosecco were on the table to welcome us. The house is an old stone farmhouse, full of cool Italian design. The huge living space has an eclectic mix of antique and modern, with a superb kitchen. The upper floors are slung on a huge brightly painted girder, with smart bedrooms and bathrooms. Style and imagination abound: wooden or tiled floors and quality linen and towels.

We ate our meals on the big terrace looking at the wonderful views. The pool is close to the house and is checked daily by Marino who doesn’t speak English, but who smiles a lot!

The pièce de resistance was the cantina underneath the terrace. Four gleaming steel barrels: red, rosé and white wines and beautiful olive oil, all produced nearby, and literally on tap, so to speak! Halfway through dinner, one of us would wander down, empty carafe in hand for a re-fill. What a treat!

The only disadvantage of the house is that there is no shop or restaurant within walking distance, so we chose to bypass the local village and drove 20 minutes down to the coast where there are restaurants and decent supermarkets. We collected Carlo’s bikes from his friend’s beach restaurant and cycled for miles along the coastal cycle path, working up an appetite for fresh fish and more Prosecco.

We found a little gem in Via Catullo in San Benedetto - a tiny restaurant (un ristorantino) called Amarcord. Five or six interesting courses for an extremely modest price - great value and a recommended experience.

Altogether, a great week in a stylish home in a beautiful location. Perfetto!!

best family holiday ever

  • 5 of 5

We can not praise this villa enough. We were a family of 8 adults 2 children 2 babies and a dog and there was ample space for all. The villa had a most picturesque outlook and being situated at the end of a long lane, very quiet. It had everything we could want - lovely clean pool with ample sun beds, jacquzi, gardens, plenty of terracing for outdoor dining and delicious wine and olive oil on tap!

The host Carlo was exceptionally helpful and friendly. He provided us with a wonderful cook who served us 2 exquisite meals in the villa.

All in all a superb family holiday. Thanks again Carlo.

Even Better Than It Looks!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this beautiful villa for two weeks with my husband and three children (11,19,21). We had a fabulous family vacation! The villa was beautiful and very well equipped with everything you could need; however, if you are missing something Carlo and Sandra will have it for you in a jiffy. The wine and olive oil were delicious. We had the housekeeper come daily, which may have been the best part of the trip for me! She did laundry, cleaned, and cooked local specialties. Just thinking about the food in Italy makes me hungry. We enjoyed the local towns and restaurants that Carlo suggested. We visited the beach, many le Marche towns, and historical ruins. Favorite towns were Macerata and Urbs Salvia. We also enjoyed the outlet shoe shopping. What merchandise! My sons did some hiking and we thought the beach club at Grottamare was wonderful. In addition to the beach you can eat at Il Grecale...we did more than once. Biking along the "boardwalk" was a blast. My sons now want to put in a sauna at home because they loved the one at the villa so much. Don't wait another minute. Book this villa before it's gone!
