About the property

Farmhouse in San Ginesio, Macerata, Le Marche, Italy - Totally Private Position, Yet just 20 Minutes Walk from the Historic Hilltown of San Ginesio

The house is an exceptionally comfortable and welcoming stone home, suitable either for families or up to four couples. Beautifully restored using original stones and beams, it looks out over the Fiastrone Valley to the Sibillini Mountains. The views from the terracotta tiled terrace are truly wonderful, particularly as the evening sun goes down over the Sibillini Mountains. The terrace looks down on the well stocked gardens and the totally private 10m x 5m swimming pool with several mature oak trees in the hectare of grounds. The house itself has been restored to create a welcoming family home. The metre thick stone walls ensure a fresh temperature in the summer and warmth in the winter, whilst every window is fitted with integral mosquito blinds to ensure your comfort throughout the day and night.

wonderful family holiday in a heavenly place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a a glorious week in Le Marche in a beautiful house which is perfectly restored.

The sun shone, the view was utterly astounding and the pool was bliss in the heat of the day.

This house is beautifully restored and although all we did was sleep inside because the days were spent eating on the terrace and enjoying the pool, we appreciated the space, the comfort and the way that the house and garden perfectly compliment each other.

This is a peaceful part of Italy, near to a lovely town called San Ginesio where the local people welcomed us and were warm and friendly. We enjoyed our morning coffees in Bar Centrale and then the rest of our days by the pool relaxing. We headed out to the Siblini National Parc one day and enjoyed the wonderful views on the drive and our walk. Back at the house we listened to the howls of the wolves in the Parc in the evening and then the amazing sight of golden eagles sailing majestically above us. On one evening we sat until the early hours watching shooting stars. Our week could not have been more magical and our grandson who is six years old said he felt like he was in a dream it was so perfect!

We shopped at local supermarkets which can be found on the major routes towards San Ginesio and just outside the walls of the town itself. We bought fresh fruit and veg and cooked wonderful meals which we ate outside every evening.

If this review sounds like perfection it is because our time in this house was as close to perfect as it is possible to get. The pool is pristine and was cleaned twice during our stay and everything else was just right for our family. Waking up to laughter in the pool was a wonderful experience for us and we are grateful for the opportunity to have time out of time in a wonderful location.

I am sure we will return here many times over.

The farmhouse and location were perfect; a warm and welcoming base from which to explore the beautiful surrounding landscape and villages. The only problem being that two weeks went by all too quickly and all six of us could happy have stayed on for much longer!

Gracie Mille.

Thank you to the owners for allowing us to briefly share this perfect

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Our stay exceeded all expectations.

The House is beautiful and its location perfect ,enabling you to enjoy the feeling of privacy and real seclusion whilst at the same time being close enough to all that the stunning village of San Ginesio has to offer.We had an incredibly relaxing two week stay.

The Pool was a great asset ,clean and well maintained indeed some days it was difficult to drag ourselves away to explore the surrounding area .

The Standard of the fixtures and fittings in the House were very high and everything you could need was provided for..Hot water was plentiful and we had the choice of enjoying the luxury of a deep recuperating bath or a power shower .

The village was charming and very unspoiled offering great local produce in the shops and fine regional dishes and Pizza in the restaurants.The local people were really friendly and were appreciative if more often amused ,in our case , at our attempts to speak their language.

We made good use of our Hire car to visit other villages and the nearby Sibilini Mountains .

We would strongly recommend this house to both families and couples you will not be disappointed and we will return!!

Ticks all the Boxes...and some.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful holiday home in an idyllic spot.We enjoyed many meals al fresco on the well furnished terrace overlooking the pool and on towards the mountains,the only noise being the occasional cockerel in the morning and crickets at night.We made the most of eating at the house because the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to prepare family meals and plenty of eating space in and out.Lovely fire place which I imagine would be lovely if it were cooler.All the bedrooms were really comfy and it was all set up for us when we arrived, no making up the beds!! Upstairs had a great tub for soaking whilst gazing across the fields....bliss. Only a very short hop in the car to pretty San Ginesio for shops and restaurant but we enjoyed being at the house so much we mainly stayed put.The kids loved the pool which was cleaned while we were there so was spotless

Would definitely book this house again if holidaying in Le Marche we loved it.

Heaven

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home on the edge of this charming town. Complete privacy, in a quiet landscaped setting. A complete retreat and getaway. Lazy days by an immaculate pool, long lunches with fresh food and great wine from the town. Lots of scope for exploring this magnificent and unspoilt countryside. We found a new restaurant every evening including some with the town square. All offered charming Italian hospitality and great food. We will definitely return many times. The listing is accurate and if anything too understated. You will not be disappointed, best villa/home we have ever used.

Further Details:

Casa delle Querce is uniquely situated only a short walk from San Ginesio whilst still being a totally private and rural location. The town of San Ginesio with its wonderful main square (Piazza A. Gentili) manages to offer most services including a small supermarket, butchers, grocers, bakers, bars, restaurants, etc) whilst preserving a uniquely tranquil and charismatic atmosphere. The walk to town followed by a morning coffee in the Bar Centrale (owned by our nearest neighbours who live in the house at the top of the long private drive to our house) is a perfect start to the day.

As well as its proximity to San Ginesio, Casa delle Querce is within easy striking distance of both the mountains and the sea. There are numerous opportunities to enjoy the beautiful beaches of the Adriatic or for the nature-lovers, hiking, mountain-biking and horse riding in the nearby Sibillini National Park. Also in the National Park and only a 30 minute drive away is the beautiful Lake Fiastra situated in the heart of the mountains and providing opportunities for swimming, canoeing and sun bathing on the lake’s beaches.

The numerous picturesque hilltop villages within an easy drive offer the chance to wander the charismatic narrow streets or visit the many churches and museums.

The area has many inexpensive local restaurants. These provide a welcoming atmosphere and produce delicious local dishes. A list of recommended restaurants is provided in the house book.

Le Marche also caters for wine lovers with the wine producing regions of Matelica, Jesi and Mount Conero all within an hour’s drive of the house. Here one can enjoy tasting the white verdicchios and the full flavoured reds produced from montepulciano and sangiovese grapes.
