Luxury Country Villa with Pool, Next to Waterfall



Updated: 14-Aug-2016
Luxury Villa with pool next to waterfall - Peaceful Location, 15 Minutes Walk to the Town's Piazza

Welcome to Casa Cascata! If you are looking for a luxury rental that offers all the comforts of home, this is it! Internet throughout the house, gourmet kitchen with double oven, microwave, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, fridge/freezer. Large swimming pool in garden with terrace, king-size bed in master bedroom with orthopedic mattress and flat screen colour television with English and Italian language programs and a DVD and ensuite bathroom. There is a second flat screen colour television in living room and a selection of books. New furniture throughout, washing machine and dryer, central heating and a wood fireplace in the living room. The entire house is screened.

Our house has a lot of character and overlooks the river Tenacola that runs nearby. This means you are never away from the sound of water; upstream and very close by there is a picturesque waterfall. It is an idyllic setting for a tranquil holiday away from it all, while simultaneously offering all amenities within walking distance.

A fifteen minute walk (or 3 minute drive) takes you into the main Piazza of the medieval hilltop town of Sarnano, where you can find fresh bread, cafes, shops, restaurants and anything else you might need. In 20 minutes you can reach the mountain ski resort of Sasso-Tetto at about 5000 feet - and you are only 45 minutes from the Adriatic coast and beautiful beaches around Civitanova Marche.

There are three bedrooms, and a large and airy living room and a large kitchen/dining room with doors opening up onto an outside verandah that overlooks the river. There is a lovely, spacious garden with a large in-ground swimming pool surrounded by a wooded area and rock terraces with beautiful views of the mountains and ample space for parking.

About the Owner

We saw this property and fell in love! The sound of the water and the beautiful waterfall in such a unique location. This is our vacation home and we come frequently to Italy. We rent out the house when we are not using it to guests that we are sure will love it as much as we do!

Speaks English, Italian

Guestbook comments from the owner

"A great place to chill out and we'd love to come back in the winter to ski! Casa Cascata is so well equipped, clean and convenient, we've had all the luxuries of home, everything we could possibly need." Casa Cascata is amazing and we can't wait to come back. Sarnano is such a great base and we ate out in a few of your recommended restaurants and really enjoyed that... We found absolutely everything in the house that we needed, particularly in the kitchen which I really enjoyed using. We loved it and had a perfect honeymoon as we could do exactly what we wanted - eating, drinking, walking - and it was all so reasonably priced." "Your house is a great experience. You've made it so convenient and comfortable and at the same time it feels really Italian/Mediterranean - or should I say Adriatic?"

A well appointed house with very good facilities

  • 4 of 5

The owners were very helpful in making arrangement for our stay and their agent in Sarnano was always available in the case of queries or other assistance. The house was immaculately clean and had every facility. The pool is large with plenty of shade provided by the garden trees. The nearby waterfall and stream is an attractive feature and is a draw for visitors. Sarnono itself is a lively town with a regular market, restaurants, supermarkets, bakeries etc. The old city is a delight to visit. There are plenty of local activities and our children enjoyed the opportunity for horse riding and for walks in the beautiful Sibilini mountains with their spectacular views. There are many nearby villages and towns to visit within relatively easy driving distance and the beaches and towns of the Adriatic coast are reachable within about an hour. Our stay was very enjoyable and we highly recommend the property.

From the Owner

Casa Cascata sits in the ideal location, on the edge of the town of Sarnano, but away from it all. Although it only takes 15 minutes to walk into the town's main piazza, the house is in a tranquil spot, with a large pool and garden, not overlooked, and on the edge of the National Sibilini Park. With nature all around us, great food and wine, and the musical sound of water coming from the waterfall and the tennacola river running next to the house, how could we resist? This part of Le Marche represents the "real" Italy, unspoiled by hordes of tourists and buses.; it is close to the sea and lies in the shadow of the beautiful and dramatic Sibilini mountains. The people there are genuinely friendly and there is a true sense of the real Italy about the area. What more could you want?

From the Owner

Casa Cascata is a unique property, close to town, but on the edge of the forest with its own large pool and a waterfall just steps from the front door. Bring your swimming gear and fishing rod, there are trout in the beautiful, clean mountain river!
