This stylish and comfortable home has a setting to rival many, with views stretching across a patchwork of vines, olive groves and fields towards the impressive Sibillini mountains in the distance, whilst to one side the rooftops of the nearby village, Patrignone, are to be seen peaking above the trees. This lovely location offers the best of both worlds: essentially rural, it is only a 10 minute stroll (1.1km) along the nearby country road into the village itself.

Cool, understated interiors accentuated with splashes of colour in the bedrooms create a peaceful and uncluttered haven. Your comfort is assured with large sofas, modern bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen.

The bedrooms, on the upper level, enjoy the same picturesque views that can be seen from the dining terrace and the pool area, itself attractively surrounded by travertine marble that echoes the colour theme inside. A tiled patio area, furnished with outdoor sofa and chairs, under the pine trees in the grounds provides a place to relax in the shade whilst still enjoying the panoramic views across to the pool and beyond. The finishing relaxing touch is a hammock that gently sways between the trees.

Patrignone provides basic amenities in the form of a bar/pizzeria and supermarket, with a further choice of restaurants and shops in the hilltop town of Montalto delle Marche, a five minute drive away. Closer to home (2 mins walk), there is an agriturismo serving local dishes (open weekends only).

The location of Casa delle Vigne will delight nature and culture lovers alike as the sandy beaches of the Adriatic coast and the hills of the Monte Sibillini National Park can be reached within 45 minutes. Nearby Ascoli Piceno (30km) is a stunning medieval town rich in history and art, whose Piazza del Popolo is widely renowned as being one of Italy's most beautiful squares: a day out here will undoubtedly be one to remember.

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Casa delle Vigne

Travel due south

and you will soon cross the border into Abruzzo, even less touristy and un known than Le Marche.

Or go north west

and follow the S77 into Umbria and visit places such as Assisi and Spoleto.

Take a stroll along the country lane

into the village of Patrignone for a drink and a pizza at the local bar.

Head into Montalto on a Wednesday morning

for the local market and buy food for lunch. Have an espresso or cappuccino (before 11am!) in one of the bars before heading back to Casa delle Vigne and the pool.

On 14th August, Montalto has a festival

called 'Notte dei Folletti e delle Streghe' where everyone dresses up as witches, elves and fairies. There will be plenty of dancing, eating and singing.

A walk around Montalto is particularly pleasant

in the summer as the streets are lined with hundreds of sweetly scented lime trees.

Grottammare, where orange trees adorn the hillside, has a mild climate,

a traffic-free promenade backed by charming 'Art Nouveau' villas and 5 kms of excellent sandy beach. It was also the home town of Pope Sixtus V. Return home via Ripatransone to see Italy's narrowest alleyway - just 43 centimetres wide!

A must see at any time is the Piano Grande,

a vast (over 10km) plateau, over 1400m above sea level, situated in the Monte Sibillini national park. It is an amazing sight, especially in June and July when the ground is simply covered in wildflowers, poppies, cornflowers & narcissus. Enjoy the stillness and silence.

Montottone, to the north of Montalto,

has a number of craftsmen producing pottery, copper and wrought iron work. Take something home as a reminder of your holiday.

A 'must do' on anyone's list is to experience the 'passeggiata'.

In any town or large village, especially on a weekend or holiday, the inhabitants of the town will congregate in the main square in the early evening, to have a stroll around, talk to their friends, have an aperitif or ice cream, before dispersing for dinner. It is the perfect time to people watch!

Civitanova is the place for shopping.

The Corso Umberto there has been voted the best along the Adriatic coast. Go for clothes, shoes, and jewellery or to just stroll and do some window shopping and people watching of course. There's a large market in the main Piazza on Saturday mornings too.

Have a coffee in the Caffé Meletti on the Piazza del Popolo in Ascoli Piceno.

The cafe is on the list of historical Italian cafes and is a true gem. Sip a cappuccino there overlooking one of the most exquisite piazzas in Italy.

Opera lovers will be in their element with the Opera Festival

that takes place in July and August in Macerata. The operas take place in the open air Sferisterio - an elegant Neo-Classical arena, a fitting setting for the music of Verdi and Puccini.

Walkers will be delighted with the sheer choice of trails

available in the Sibillini park. There are walks for all levels of fitness and all over fantastic views and the chance to be immersed in the natural beauty of the park.

Every Thursday afternoon/ early evening during the summer,

an antiques /bric brac market takes place in the centre of Fermo (50 min drive). Have a stroll around and then go for dinner in the Piazza del Popolo.

Visit the ancient walled town of Ripatransone

with its fine cathedral and palazzi, and then for a very picturesque drive, follow the road out of the town towards Grottamare on the coast. End the day by the sea with a plate of seafood and a glass of chilled white wine.

Ascoli Piceno, a beautiful city

ideally situated between the mountains and the ocean with so much to do and see - squares, theatres, art galleries, churches, museums or just wander around admiring its marble fountains, ceramic decorations and wrought-iron gateways.

Visit Ascoli Piceno on the first Sunday of August

and witness one of the most authentic Medieval pageants in Italy today. Parades, sideshows and a jousting tournament combine to create 'La Quintana'.

Take the children to a museum with a difference in Cupra Marittima.

Here you will find the largest collection of seashells in the world in the Museo Malacologico Piceno.
