What to do in the area
This lovely villa is ideally located for exploring the nearby Monti Sibillini National Park, a little trodden wilderness of intoxicating beauty and one renowned for its rare flora and fauna. Small groups of walkers and hikers enjoy the park in the spring and summer, and it is popular with local skiers and snowboarders in the winter. The ski resorts of Sassotetto, Frontignano and Pintura di Bolognola are ideal for beginners. From the property you can be on the slopes in 30 minutes.
The local villages are unspoilt and charming, San Ginesio, the closest, being a fine example of an Italian medieval walled town. The borgo proudly flies the Bandiera Arancione, an excellence award given to the elite among smaller Italian towns with a superb track record in hospitality and the environment. Colmurano has an “international” music festival every July and Urbisaglia (from the ancient Roman town Urbs Salvia) has a nationally significant set of Roman ruins. Also close by is Sarnano, just a twenty-minute drive away, a thriving market town set in the national park and a mini mecca for walkers, hikers and skiers.
If during your stay you feel like a dip in the sea or visiting some fine fish restaurants, then the Adriatic coast with its numerous seaside resorts is only 40 minutes’ drive away. From here you can visit any number of seaside resorts all with their own charm. Among the popular coastal destinations are Sirolo and Numana, although they can get very busy in the summer. Also lovely to visit are Porto Recanati, Civitanova Marche, Porto Sant’Elpidio, Porto San Giorgio, Grottammare and San Benedetto del Tronto. These provide a mix of pebble and sandy beaches.
Even closer is the freshwater lake of Fiastra at around half an hour’s drive, surrounded by the Sibillini mountains and offering canoeing, kayaking, swimming and fishing as well as several restaurants in the two villages found on its shores. The Abbadia di Fiastra nature reserve is also popular with locals and tourists alike for its nature walks and cycle routes.
