LOCATION:- The house is on the south facing slope just outside the beautiful historic walled village of Penna San Giovanni - you can see locally made films of the town on youtube.
There are 3 great restaurants a short walk from the house - https://www.ristorantepizzeriavecchisapori.it/en/home.html; http://www.terrazzabelvedere.eu/; and https://www.instagram.com/cibusbyburocchi/
It is ideal for both a restful summer holiday or off-season walking / cycling trip.
We are located in the centre of what's known as the scenic 'Golden Triangle' area of Le Marche. This area includes many villages in the vicinity of the towns of Amandola, Sarnano and Servigliano and it is a landscape of beautiful rolling hills and valleys.
It lies in the shadow of the Sibillini National Park which is part of the Appenine range of mountains that are the spine of Italy. The area is on the Adriatic side of the mountains and Le Marche is one of the three provinces that straddle Italy not far north of Rome. The others are Tuscany and Umbria.
FACILITIES:- Close to the house in its own separate garden is a private 10 x 5 m swimming pool for your exclusive use - see photographs 2 and 3 above.
From the olive tree garden you can sit on the bench and take in the magnificent panoramic views across the valley to Monte San Martino against the backdrop of the Sibillini Mountains - see photograph 4 above.
At the front of the house looking out to the same view is a large covered terrace where you and your family and friends will dine al fresco - see photograph 5 above.
The house is comfortably furnished, the kitchen is well equipped with everything you will need for your stay and of course you will have broadband Wi-Fi - see photographs 6 - 15 above.
The area is rich in scenery, culture and activities - see photographs 16 - 20 above.
NEAREST TOWN:- The house is right on the outskirts of Penna San Giovanni which is one of the main reasons we fell for it and bought it in 2003. The convenience to the town with all its facilities is significant.
You can use a shortcut on the footpath through the property up to the town walls that takes only 5 minutes. By car it is 2 minutes.
In the village is everything you will need - grocery shops, restaurants, bars, bank, bakery, butcher, tobacconist, newsagent, chemist and doctor.
If you want a large supermarket there is one about 5 miles away but I think you will find that the local small supermarket run by Mauro will have everything you need.
ACCOMMODATION:- There are 3 bathrooms, 3 double bedrooms and 3 twins. One twin room is ideal for older guests as it is on the ground floor and has its own bathroom.
Also on the ground floor are a large dining room/lounge and a separate fully equipped kitchen.
We pride ourselves on the standard of the equipment in the house. Our aim is to make it feel like home so we ensured the beds were as comfortable as possible and provide in the kitchen a high standard of appliances, cutlery, pots and pans, table and glassware. We hope we have succeeded. Recent reviewers have remarked on the standard of equipment.
THE AREA:- The Adriatic Coast is about 40 minutes away and with its long sandy beaches and fabulous seafood you will have a great day out there. We find that on the occasional cloudy day in Penna the sun is shining in Porto San Giorgio.
In the other direction are the Sibillini mountains, with a magnificent lake safe for swimming are both just a short drive away.
Our information pack gives details of the places of interest and restaurants with a price guide to help you enjoy for yourself the pleasures of this beautiful unspoilt area.
