About the property

Medieval Towerhouse in Montedinove, Ascoli PIceno, Le Marche, Italy - It combines peace and convenience: being just 25 mins from both the beaches and the mountains.

La Torre is a very special and exclusive holiday home with a private pool, and just 5 mins drive to the medieval ‘high town’ village of Montedinove.

The property was originally a castle with a watch tower from which it was possible to see for miles, from the rolling hills all the way to the Sibillini Mountains. In this original “Torre” you can experience the thrill of living in a real Castle!

The tower is completely restored and perfectly transformed into modern accommodation where historic tradition, efficiency and comfort are well balanced.

It offers a great place to stay for families and groups of friends for up to 12 people with its 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a large covered terrace with table and barbeque for outside meals, an open space with designer kitchen and a large dining room.

The wonderful refurbishment is completed by a private pool (4mx10m) with a shallow area (30cm deep) ideal for kids, and a large landscaped garden around the house with a stunning view over the hills, the mountains and the vineyards.

Guests are welcomed and introduced to Le Marche, a largely undiscovered region famous in Italy for its architecture, scenery, vineyards and gastronomy.

The location is in the attractive Tesino Valley, just 25 km from Grottammare and its famous beaches, great shopping and restaurants. There is lots to do and explore: landscapes, little towns, great fashion shopping, food, wine and of course, relaxing.

About Sergio Ulissi

Hi I am Sergio from Cupramarittima. Me and my brother Massimo rennovate and redevelop old countryhouses in Le Marche.

I am also an happy father for Ottavia and Erica, my little girls, together with my wife Assunta.

I speak fluently English, French and some Spanish.

Sergio Ulissi purchased this villa in 2009

Why Sergio Ulissi chose Ascoli Piceno

I love the Piceno countryside and its landscape.

This old watchtower was a challenge. We did restore it faithfully but granting confort and design for a contemporary vacation home.

What makes this villa unique

the view to the valley and the mountains.

A taste of antique and unique atmosphere, though with great confort and charm.

Very well equipped, clean and comfortable property, with absolutely beautiful views across the surrounding countryside. A very restful and central base for a Le Marche holiday, and Sergio looked after us very well. Thank you!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have been several times in Le Marche already, first time in this villa. We had absolutely perfect vacation there! The location is great, the view on the hilly part of Marche is spectacular, it is very easy and quick to get to the beaches and Montedinove and Montalto delle Marche are both lovely little towns. Villa is beautiful, well equipped, pleasure to stay at. Sergio is very helpful. Definitely coming back some day in the near future!
