Exquisite Stone Villa In Preci, a hill town in the Monti Sibillini National Park



Updated: 01-Aug-2016
Villa in Preci, Italy - Two Panoramic Terraces and a Secluded Garden

This stylish villa with its spacious, comfortable rooms is beautifully furnished and conveniently laid out on one level giving stunning mountain views. Its two terraces and pretty walled garden for 'al fresco' dining, offer a truly relaxing holiday for family, friends or a honeymoon! Although in a tranquil location it has the added attraction of bars, restaurants and shops just a short stroll through the village. You can soak up the authentic Italian atmosphere of this unspoilt village, explore the region to discover its rich culture or treat yourself and the kids to some really fun activities. River rafting, kayaking, horse riding, walking, cycling and mountain chairlifts are all safe for everyone and easily arranged. The villa comes with free use of the pool in the garden of the Agli Scacchi hotel which is a 3 minute walk along traffic free streets through the centre of the village.

We didn't expect the villa to so luxurious and well-equipped. A stunning location with lots of things to see and do in the area - could have done with another week!.

The L. family from England.

A beautiful villa and area. We particularly loved the views from the two terraces and the fact that you could could get sun or shade at any time of the day.

The M. family from Ireland.

We all loved the pools and facilities at the agriturismo. The free outdoor yoga lessons were excellent and made it great value plus I could watch the kids in the pool while I did them!

Wonderful villa, lovely town

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this villa, everything exceeded our expectations as this is a very spacious and well appointed property, with two gorgeous terraces. Arrival arrangements were careful and worked well and the appartment was spotless when we got there. Preci provides several nice places to eat within a short walking distance and there was plenty of information about the town and the surrounding area available in the house. Definitely one to revisit.

Special interest holidays:

Walking – circular walks can be done from the village in the Monti Sibillini National Park, one of Italy’s most beautiful and unspoilt. A paradise for walkers with countless trails criss-crossing the hills and passing through villages virtually unchanged since medieval times. It’s a haven for wildlife and the famous Piano Grande, a high mountain plain that becomes a tapestry of wild flowers and orchids in the spring and early summer, is not to be missed with excellent trails to suit all levels of walkers.

Other family activities – mountain or road cycling, mule trekking, horse riding, river rafting, kayaking, indoor ice-skating and trout fishing. The chairlift to the summit of Monte Bove (2000 metres) is particularly popular and offers breathtaking mountain views and great walking or cycling down.

Adventure sports - rock climbing, canyoning, white water rafting, tandem assisted paragliding and hang gliding.

Luxury Spa - 15 minutes. Naturally heated indoor and outdoor pools, sauna, steam room, massage.

Cookery lessons at the villa - pasta making, sauces, meats and tiramisu.

  • The villa is furnished to an exceptionally high standard and is extremely spacious and comfortable. Views from the villa are exceptionally beautiful. The two terraces and the walled garden are the perfect places to enjoy the stunning views of the lush, green hills. There is a dining table with chairs, a large parasol, loungers and BBQ. Soak up the atmosphere of this peaceful Italian village whilst sipping a glass of wine under the stars. To enable you to get the most out of this beautiful corner of Italy, we provide you with local maps (including walking maps), guides and local information. There’s also a burgeoning games box to keep the kids happy! The pool is open for the summer season months (usually mid May to late September). The quiet cobbled lanes that criss-cross the village have changed little since their medieval origins and provide great opportunities for exploration of the many buildings, architecture and little hidden corners. As the village is traffic free and quiet, the children are safe to play and explore. There is a playground with swings, slide etc within a five minute walk. There is plenty of free off road parking within 30 metres. The following are included in the rent: Bath towels, bed linen, tea towels (changed weekly), final cleaning and a welcome pack with a little tea, coffee, milk, sugar and water. Free use of the pool. Free wifi. Dogs are welcome.
