About the Owner
(7 traveller reviews)
We had a wonderful 2 weeks at Casa Isabella. The setting is so secluded and peaceful, the house being in such a private location. The villa itself was perfect for our family of 5 with 4 good double bedrooms and large bathrooms on both floors and very quickly felt like a home from home. The house and pool were taken care of regularly and the owners provided us with comprehensive information prior to our trip. As recommended we made good use of local shops particularly the 'Rosticcheria' in Montegiorgio and found a range of supermarkets useful.We were lucky to have perfect weather for 14 days, and the surrounding area is very beautiful. We really didn't want to leave!
A wonderful fortnight at Casa Isabella
We needed to rest, away from the phone and demands of any kind, in a sunny, beautiful place with a pool. Casa Isabella provided all this and much more. Very comfortable accommodation with a well appointed kitchen where we could cook the fantastic produce available locally (if we chose to cook). Lovely wines to sit outside with while we watched the spectacular sunsets over Massa Fermana in the distance. Some wonderful restaurants to sample (especially Vela in Porto san Giorgio). We walked in the Sybilline Hills, actually significant mountains, in the National Park. A beautiful region full of legends and history. They also make some of the best shoes in the world in the Marche.
Beautiful house in wonderful area
We had a lovely stay in this beautiful property. The house was immaculate and had everything one could want. The open-plan layout is very appealing. Views of the surrounding countryside are spectacular.
Le Marche is a beautiful and unspoilt region and Macerata is well worth a visit. Jane was great at providing information.
Wonderful house in a beautiful part of Italy
Casa Isabella is a wonderful spacious house with everything we could possibly have wanted. Beautifully converted, decorated and furnished. All bedrooms and bathrooms very nice - don't think our kids really appreciated their balcony! Great pool - we hit a really hot week so were very grateful for it. I think it was better than the listing portrayed.
The Marche region is not so much on uk tourist radar and it seemed not too expensive to eat out etc. Lots to do. Montegiorgio isn't far from the coast but its worth going a bit further north to Numana, Sirolo and the Conero area.
The owner was great . Lots of info on what to do where to eat etc , much of which we used. Great customer service.
Would definitely recommend the property - in fact already have.
One excellent house in the Marche
This is one excellent house nicely located in the Marche. It is on the outskirts of a charming little village and you will definitely be needing a car. The house itself is, although looking old, brand new, which is nice, as everything will work. The furniture is a most tasteful blend of Italian furniture, Ikea and modern pieces by Kartell and it has all facilities you will need.
There is a nice pool right outside the kitchen entrance, thus providing total control of the wherabouts of your children. The pool is taken care of twice a week and always in beautiful shape. There are four double bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom, en extra bathroom upstairs and a bathromm with shower downstairs. Casa Isabella will easily house eight people. Linen is changed once a week and there is a local person you can contact if any problems should occur.
The location is perfect, far away from the neighbors so that you will never be concerned for your children to raise their voices too high and thus disturbing the neighbors, yet not isolated. The nearby village is charming and it is a short drive to Porto San Giorgio and the coast.
Shopping is excellent, the biggest Tods and Prada outlets ever are a 15 minutes drive away. There are numerous outlets in Civitanova (and for those who care one excellent Harley Davidson/ Buell shop).
There is a TV, a PS 2 and a book/ DVD/ CD collection which will be much appreciated by those born around 1965. Earth Wind and Fire and the likes. Plus lots of tour- and guide books
All in all we enjoyed our stay at Casa Isabella very much. A carefree, peaceful, clean and well functioning house. Highly recommended
Wonderful Casa Isabella
We, six grown-ups and one toddler, had a perfect holiday in Casa Isabella in July. We truly enjoyed the house, the patio and the the pool. We would say that the house is nicer than in pictures. What appealed us particularly as we are Nordics, was the straight-forward interior decoration.
We also appreciated greatly Jane's spot-on, brilliant advice on restaurants, beaches and shopping sight-seeing. Million thanks for that!
The house is a perfect base for exploring Marche, it is also a lovely place for relaxing by the pool.
One should note however, that you do have to have a car there.
Activity and Interests
The house is ideally located between the beautiful Sibillini mountains and the charming sandy Blue Flag seaside resort of Porto San Giorgio. It is a 5 minute drive/good 20 minute walk from Montegiorgio, a bustling market town, with a variety of shops selling local produce, including the rosticerria for tasty home-cooked dishes and fresh pasta. There are bars, a pizzeria, spaghetteria and also many wonderful restaurants close by. Why not sample the local Verdicchio and Rosso Conero wines with a beachside fish supper. Montegiorgio has a bank/cash point, chemist and hospital.
For art lovers, you will find the work of Crivelli and his followers all over Le Marche, and much to admire in Raphael's birthplace, the magical Urbino in the North of the region. Why not stroll around the antiques market in Fermo 30 minutes away, or the elegant university town of Macerata (35 minutes) with its renowned opera festival. We are also a short drive from the Prada and Tod's outlets, amongst others.
