About the property

IT6836 farmhouse

This fairytale restored farmhouse sits in the hillside surrounded by it's own 10 acres of tree's and open glades with fantastic views of both the Sibillini and Grand Sasso mountains. The property has been tastefully restored to provide both a 3 bedroom house ( Casa Flori) and a 2 bed apartment (Leonardo's),both with private patio and parking which can be let separately or opened up to create a 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom house over 2 floors.There are original chestnut beams, terracotta ceilings and tiled floors throughout , along with open fire and woodburning stoves. There is ample space around the property for guests to relax in a hammock on the hill, play games or eat outdoors, either in the shade of mature tree's or to enjoy the full Mediterranean sun. Only 50 minutes from the beach, it makes an ideal base to explore the many nearby Medieval hilltop towns and the beautiful Sibillini National Park. perfect for walking and cycling. Just relax, reflect and rejuvenate!

About Mr and Mrs Sanderson

We are two TV Production Designers, who wanted a project and we certainly found one with Casa Flori!

We fell in love as soon as we saw it, even though it was semi derelict with only half a roof and crumbling walls - we could see what a wonderful property it could be. After major refurbishment by local craftsman, we have spent the last few summers furnishing the house and trying to tame the land around.It has been a labour of love and still continues, as we still have to restore the other half of the house.

Mr and Mrs Sanderson purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Mr and Mrs Sanderson chose Ascoli Piceno

We had looked in both the Italian Lakes and Tuscany , but could not afford what we wanted. After reading an article in a magazine about Le Marche, we booked a flight and spent five days driving around the area and loved everything about it - the scenary, the hilltop towns, the people and the food. Coming from a big city, we especially liked the lack of people! We feel it gives you a real taste of authentic Italian living.

What makes this apartment unique

We find that once we get to Casa Flori, we never want to leave and nor do our guests. It is so peaceful and tranquil, it's difficult to tear yourself away, except to stroll up to La Diga (our local restaurant) when you can't be bothered to BBQ. Stargazing is stunning and the Milky Way is visible most nights, as there is no light pollution.

Lovely, well equipped villa in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Flori. The villa is very attractive on the outside with lots of green spaces and great spots for catching the sun - or staying in the shade.

The property is beautiful with a delightful, rustic feel and comfortable furniture. It felt homely and welcoming.

Everything we needed was provided from welcoming guest soaps to Yorkshire tea!

The surrounding area is very quiet but there were plenty of places to visit.

Fantastic property! More than we wished for and even better than the photos.

  • 5 of 5

Best place we have stayed! Beautifully decorated throughout, immaculate and very well-equipped. Incredible surroundings and panoramic views. Comfortable beds, deep silence all around, no traffic noise, easy to reach from airport. Will definitely go again. Owners very kind and easy-going, helpful but non-intrusive. Wonderful hill towns and the whole National Park on our doorstep. Great walks right outside the front door as well. We've stayed in dozens of these places but this one was the absolute best. Hoping to visit again to see Autumn colors. Highly recommend this property to everyone.
