About the property

Villa and Apartment in Cossignano, Ascoli Piceno, Le Marche, Italy - Secluded Location Yet Only 5 Minutes From Cossignano And Under 30 Minutes From Safe Beaches

Casa Collina with its commanding position and astounding views was totally restored in 2010 incorporating a mixture of modern and traditional features. Located down a private drive the Villa is secluded yet only 400mtrs from the beautiful village of Cossignano with its local shops and bars. You need never travel far but the superb beaches and buzzing holiday resorts are less than thirty minutes away or the peace and beauty of National Parks less than an hour away. Although totally integrated Casa Collina provides dual accommodation which makes it ideal for two families sharing. Choose your dining areas or let the kids have their own lounge knowing that the air con in all bedrooms will let you sleep well and cool at night. The superb south facing infinity pool with its marble surround paving includes a long shallow pool for young children. A separate playroom houses a table tennis and there is outside cooking facility. Casa Collina allows you to relax or play in your well earned break.

About Colin Withers

We are UK based and having owned a villa in Spain were looking for something different for our retirement and our family enjoyment. We chose Italy and on visiting the Marche region were impressed with its beauty, stunning beaches, interesting sites and numerous activities. Finally the people in our village who are all so friendly.

Colin Withers purchased this villa in 2008

Why Colin Withers chose Ascoli Piceno

We chose Casa Collina because of its stunning private location yet within walking distance of Cossignano and close to beaches. Then followed two years of conversion to provide the ideal family location which suits our needs perfectly. The infinity pool was my own creation with luxury mosaic tiles rather than pool liner and a small baby pool at the lower level. Each year we add something different with new areas in the garden.

What makes this villa unique

With two kitchens and lounges we designed it to allow all our family to visit with the ability to have some privacy when needed but be together most of the time. We all wanted a playroom and pool and to make sure of a good sleep every night installed air con in all bedrooms--still unusual in most Italian homes but very welcome.

We stayed at this house as two families of four and absolutely loved it! The house is large and spacious and has everything you could possibly need. It is positioned in a quiet and peaceful location and the views are just stunning. We would have quite happily tucked ourselves away there for the full two weeks! However, visits to the surrounding villages and towns where the locals are very welcoming are a must and we were lucky enough to have (by chance!) picked the festival period to go, adding that extra bit of fun and fervour to our stay. A trip to the mountains is an hour away, the beach is about half an hour, and a visit to the local Fiorano vineyard offers wine tasting opportunities where the owners are lovely and the wine is extremely good! .. Yay! Obviously a car is a must. We have come home feeling relaxed, refreshed and longing for more! The owners, Colin and Sue have been really friendly and approachable and have offered some good advice and suggestions. Thomas, their agent, was exceptionally helpful and always on hand if needed. I cannot recommend this property highly enough. A definite 5 stars from me! We would all go back at the drop of a hat!!

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic family holiday! Not only was the weather hot (thank goodness for the air-con), but the house was everything we needed and more... the views were breath taking to wake up to every morning, the house was very well equipped and the pool was very clean and perfect for both the kids and adults.

The local village was beautiful with a church at the top, opposite a fantastic bar where we had lovely evening meals. There were also friendly local shops and a fresh pasta shop.

We hope to return one day to Casa Collina.

We joined some friends who had already been at the villa for a week, which was useful because otherwise we might well have missed the well-hidden "driveway" up to the house... but that is now just part of the nice memories. Splendid location, view over Le Marche fields and meadows, several villages in sight (from the infinity-pool as well)... The villa in itself is very spacious, comfortable, with all modern kitchen equipment, nice bed- and bathrooms (however, still "enjoying" backproblems from too soft mattresses). In all, highly recommended for up to three families, if rented as a whole.

Advantage of Le Marche: it has a lot of the charm of Tuscany (less cypresses, though), but, as a plus, rather few non-Italians (except for the very charming and discrete English couple managing the place). Driving up to Cossignano from the coast at first isn't too promising (ugly industrial-type buildings along the road), but then Le Marche captivates you... Quite enjoyable!
