My family and I stayed at Casa Montalto for 2 weeks in July 2018. This was our home base from which we did day trips to Fermo, Acquasanta, Civitanova, Offida, Pedaso, San Benedetto, etc, etc. The rooms are spacious with high ceilings. The high ceilings were especially practical during the hot weather in July. The house remained a comfortable temperature despite the 30+ degree weather outside. There are 3 full bathrooms with 1 half bathroom. We were 5 people total (2 kids ages 7 and 13, 2 parents and a grandparent). With 3 generations being together in the same space for 2 weeks I had concerns about being able to get away for some of my own downtime (kids, husband, and my own father for 2 weeks?! One roof?!) Moms, rest assured we all had ample space and privacy. There is space for everyone and Moms, you'll like this place because there's a TV and dvd player for the kids, and an outdoor fridge by the pool for your wine. There was something for everyone! Even my 13 year old, who doesn't like anything, didn't want to leave. Our host, Debby Manz, is lovely. She helped us arrange some outings such as an afternoon making pizza. This was so much fun! She knows the area very well and makes some great suggestions. There are 3 cats who live outside - they became an instant hit with my family. If you are not a cat lover, or are allergic, keep in mind that they live outside and keep pests away. This is a farmhouse situated in the stunning countryside of Le Marche so there are lots of animals living just outside the door. The 3 cats, a family of little fallow deer, and a hedgehog were practically a part of our family by the end of our stay. The kitchen is well stocked, there are cleaning supplies, dishwasher and washing machine for clothes washing (hang dry outside). Bring your own soaps / shampoos for all the bathrooms or someone will become the runner for conditioner which gets annoying when the whole family is getting ready to go out at the same time. The bathrooms are stocked with hand soap and toilet paper. We prepared our own meals for most of the stay using fresh produce from the garden outside or the local butcher and fruit market. There is a weekly market that offers some good finds such as porchetta. Part of the fun is getting to know the speciality of each of the surrounding towns (i.e. best bread, best bakery, best butcher, best porchetta, etc). The only complaint we have is that 2 weeks wasn't long enough! Next time we will book a longer stay!
Could not have asked for a better host! for a better house! We were in Ascoli for a wedding, family from Italy, Argentina, United States and Australia were attending.
Guess where we all gathered and had our meals and down time? At this house!! we felt at home, we felt like we were locals, we loved it! we were a family of 8 and we had room to roam, area to explore.
Will stay here again always!!
Thank you for making it so easy.
