A Grand and Imposing Marchigiana Farmhouse
Casa Fortezza, literally the house of strength, is unlike virtually any other rental property in the Marche.
Casa Fortezza is aptly named - when you're there, you feel the strength - the strength of the home itself - the strength of spirit you feel when you take in one of the most spectacular views in all of Italy - and the strength of enduring relationships as Casa Fortezza is perfect for large groups of family or friends. The house comfortably accommodates 10 people.
Here is where Casa Fortezza is truly unique…it is perfect for larger groups of holiday-makers - in the past over 20 people lived their lives under this same roof - today your group of 10 can feel at home and feel fortunate to be together at Casa Fortezza - whether it be generations of an extended family vacationing together, large groups of friends sharing a holiday together or 2-3 families joining together to make a special memory. The house and grounds are ample, guaranteeing that everyone has sufficient space, while being an intimate part of the larger group.
First, the house…Casa Fortezza is a Grand house in the old sense of the word - it's large, strong, solid - Built nearly 250 years ago, it's a uniquely large house in that it's a warm, welcoming house. The thick stonewalls provide a welcoming coolness in summer and reassuring warmth in winter. The house has 4 original fireplaces and 5 baths. There's even a library/reading room. All the bedrooms, 5 in total (of which 3 are matrimonials, 2 doubles), are beautifully, but comfortably, appointed with antique furniture. Practical appointments include a full size kitchen, dining area and washing machine.
The Views & Grounds
As the Italians say, the view is "senza pare" -- without peer…Casa Fortezza enjoys what even veteran travelers to Italy call one of the most spectacular views in all of the peninsula. The natural beauty makes visitors feel a strength of spirit borne of all this natural beauty just beyond the front door.
Walk out that door and you see a breathtaking view of the Sibillini Mountains in all their grandeur. Look to the north and you see the classic hilltop town of San Ginesio - Italian television just did a feature show touting it as one of the most beautiful hilltowns in Italy. On a clear day, due east, you can catch a glimpse of the Adriatic Sea... And, between San Ginesio and the mountains, Casa Fortezza affords you views of a classic Italian landscape - rolling, verdant hills, and, in summer, bright fields of sunflower and grain.
Closer-in, the property is perfectly landscaped - a large lawn and terraced land. A sizable swimming pool - 4m x 12m - with a view of the mountains is a welcome summer respite. Don't forget the outdoor portico with archways and large dining table to accommodate your entire party
