Casa Cappella, Sleeps 2 (1 Bedroom)
If you are looking to combine breath-taking views and tranquil living with contemporary comfort and style then Casa Cappella and Casa Ciliegia make the perfect choice. Located in the heart of unspoilt Le Marche, each of the stone houses is a treasure, having been lovingly restored with a close eye to detail and a very high quality finish. The houses sit either side of the swimming pool, each with its own private covered dining terrace and enjoy sweeping views of the valleys as they rise to the mountain range. During the summer months, you will be welcomed at the many traditional festas, which celebrate local wines and produce from fish to fungi. There are a wide choice of local restaurants, in the surrounding villages, with the nearest just a short, 500 metre, walk away. At the coast, which is a 25 minute drive, will find 'blue flag' beaches extending for many miles with a great many fresh fish / seafood restaurants & bars or drive for about 45 minutes and you are in the mountains with fresh water glacial lakes and golden eagles soaring overhead. If you want to escape the quiet life for a day Ascoli Piceno is close as are the fashionable shops and designer outlet at Citivitanova Marche.

Casa Cappella - Just Perfect!
A simply beautiful location, with stunning views over the valley and across the hills. The property itself has been finished to a really high standard, with some great little touches that make it something special.
The compact, but not cramped, offshot kitchen is modern and well equiped, there's a full size hob and oven, dishwasher, and fridge with icebox. Plenty of pots, pans, and a very good selection of sharp knives (something often lacking).
This leads nicely into a comfortable sitting room, with sofa, TV, speaker, a selection of books, etc - and a multi USB charging block - really handy!
There's also a very well detailed visitors pack, with a lot of really useful info on the local area.
The bedroom is light and airy, with doors that will open fully onto the pool area, there's a ceiling fan for those very hot nights, and a huge wardrobe for all your clothes.
Dressing gowns and a hairdrier are provided, as are standard and pool towels, the bed is huge, and really comfortable.
The bathroom has double sinks set in a cabinet, a huge lit mirror, plug sockets, a toilet, and a huge shower with a rain shower head - and the best thing for me was that the water is very soft, which meant that my hair has not felt so good in ages!
All the doors and windows have well build fly screens, so you can have your windows open all day and night if you want, and they havec shutters that can be used if wanted too.
Theres a really private little covered outdoor BBQ and dining area to the side of the house, with a gas BBQ, which is useful for drying clothes too.
The sun loungers and sun shade by the pool are a great place to spend a few hours reading and relaxing, and the pool itself was a pleasant surprise - 15m long, and more than deep enough for a good swim, or a bit of a splash about to cool off.
the whole outside area is well maintained, and well designed for either socialising or privacy.
Overall the property was incredibly clean, absolutely spotless! As were all the towels and linen, the cutlery, etc
Lona is a fantastic host, very friendly, and happy to give advice on what to do, where to go, or how to get there if requested.
Favourite places - Centanni for wine, Lake Fiastra, the village for sunset views, Rosita for pizza, PSG for shopping, Mecozzi for icecream
Very well maintained
Very well fitted out inside with everything you need to cater for yourself. Quality of equipment and fitting was excellent
Truly special place to stay
We love Italy and have visited many times, but Le Marche & Casa Cappella has been the best by far!
Casa Cappella is just beautiful with all the facilities you could want and more.
Lona and Gavin were exceptional hosts, extremely helpful and welcoming ... providing all the local infomation and an incredible welcome basket, figs will never taste the same again!!
We are already planning our next trip!
Thank you for a truly special week

Très bel endroit de vacances
Endroit agréable et calme. Gîte propre, très bien décoré et confortable. Cuisine super équipée. Les propriétaires (parlant l'anglais) sont discrets et charmants. Un magnifique panier de bienvenue (produits et vins locaux) et un frigo bien garni sont prévus. Belle région et nombreuses visites de villes et village à proximité. Egalement mer toute proche. Là aussi Lona et Gavin vous conseilleront les endroits à visiter, les restaurants de la région et les domaines viticoles. Région méconnue mais très attachante, gens très sympas. Et prix bien plus doux que dans d'autres régions d'Italie ! L'absence de climatisation ne gêne pas. Le gîte reste frais même après plusieurs jours à 35°c de température extérieure. Un ventilateur est présent dans la chambre.
Bref, des vacances impeccables !

A place to return to
My sister, brother-in-law and I shared Casa Ciliegia for a week. The accommodations were perfect for two couples or in our case three people. We enjoyed having separate living spaces with the kitchen in the upper level where I stayed. The property is located in a beautiful and quiet area of Italy. This was our first visit to Le Marche and we'll be back! Casa Cappella was very well-maintained and the furnishings, bedding, towels and other amenities were tasteful, well-designed and maintained. The kitchen was well-equipped with a dishwasher, a new induction cooktop, and a more than adequate refrigerator and freezer. Lona and Gavin had stocked the kitchen and refrigerator with an abundant amount of food and sundries. We greatly appreciated being able to prepare our first meals without having to drive to a grocery. Lona and Gavin have created and maintained a very special landscape surrounding the three structures. We enjoyed their harvests of different fruits and herbs. Lona also shared jams that she made with the produce from their fruit trees. They have also worked very hard to provide a lot of written information about restaurants, things to do and see, etc. Both Lona and Gavin were very willing to recommend restaurants and outings when asked and made reservations for us multiple times. While we were there, a young British couple were staying in the other rental for two weeks. It was their third visit (including their honeymoon 6 years ago). They told us they were already planning their next visit! Lona and Gavin treated us like we were new friends, not paying guests, in a genuine and heart-warming manner. They are fascinating and gracious people. I highly recommend Casa Cappella and Casa Ciliegia and I plan to return with my wife to introduce her to this beautiful region of Italy and to Lona and Gavin.
Dear D, M and B
It was a pleasure hosting you for your 1st visit to Marche. Every day we could see your delight in the places you visited and food and wines tasted. I think Marche has found a place in your hearts.
See you next time
Love to all

The ultimate!!!! Everything is absolutely 'top notch'. The setting, the property the location, the amenities, the welcome pack, the cleanliness, facilities, the high specifications. Gavin and Lona are the very BEST hosts. The ultimate combination of giving you privacy but always being on hand to help. Forget "Ask Jeeves" .... just "Ask Gavin" !!!!
