About the Property

3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, downstairs guest toilet. 7 persons maximum.

A Wonderful spacious and private villa offering a large swimming pool of 14m x 7m x 2.1m, unobstructed mountain and valley views, and a large and beautiful garden. Our non-smoking villa is fully serviced to whatever level you might require and is fully equipped for every self catering eventuality. It is very comfortable and has a large sitting room and fireplace, hand made tiled floors, personally chosen paintings and offers alfresco dining under the vine-laden pergola. Our English/German/Italian speaking manager, Alexandra will meet you at the villa and provide you with all information needed for a smooth and trouble free holiday. You will be sent her mobile number. She and her husband meticulously attend to the maintenance of the villa, garden and pool. A car is essential and dozens of fabulous restaurants serving local foods are available both near and far. For the record,we are actually in Romagna of Emelio-Romagna having recently been voted by the public to leave Le Marche.

Art, eating and exercise: The villa is about 90 minutes drive ( not August ) from Florence, 60 minutes from Urbino, and 60 minutes from Arrezzo, all of which have the most exquisite Renaissnace paintings and scupture. Bologna, the food capital of Italy is a 70 to 80 minute drive away, and Restaurante Vite in Coriano - voted the Best Restaurant in Emelio Romagna - is some 40 minutes from the villa. Not to be missed ! Wonderful eating is also to be had in Santarcangelo, Nova Feltria, Verruchio and of course fresh sea food in Rimini, a great fishing port. We are situated about 500 to 600 metres above sea level in the foot hills of the Appenines and cycling is very popular in the locality. Also wonderful walking and climbing in the freshest and cleanest air in all Italy ! An Introduction to Poggio Bello will be sent to you with so much more information about the area and beyond. Just request a copy. Dont forget the White Truffle Festa in October - the 2nd largest in Italy - enormous fun with food & wine

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I am a retired doctor, Consultant Anaesthetist, who bought the property - a small farm - as I love Italy and enjoy the rural life which the property offers.

Why the Owner Chose Sant'Agata Feltria, Rimini, Italy:
I have refurbished the two villas on the property over the past 9 years and am always looking to ways to improve the place. I originally furnished it as I would for our own private use, but as the years have passed, owing to the fact that we dont get out for more than a month a year, decided to rent it out to simply cover costs. It is not run as a business venture, but simply a way of maintaining it to the standard I would want it when I holiday there, without the added expense of maintaining it.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The position is wonderful as it is not overlooked by anyone or any property and although the nearest village of some 70 houses ( approximately 1 km away ) is visible from the front garden, they are unable to see into the property. The air is pure and totally unpolluted. We are 600 metres above sea level and in the mountains with no factories within many many kilometres. Local restaurants abound with local food and the area is not a tourist destination. English is barely spoken. The views from the front garden which is very large are unrivalled and the benefits of Le Marche as opposed to Tuscany are beautiful views, no tourists and awesome hills and mountains and valleys.
