Grand holiday home with swimming pool in Le Marche

Casa Fortezza is a grand holiday home with swimming pool in Le Marche perfect for big groups. Casa Fortezza, literally the house of strength, is unlike virtually any other rental property in Le Marche. It has a most spectacular view. The house can comfortably accommodate 10 people and has been lovingly restored according to old building traditions. Casa Fortezza is a grand house in the old sense of the word – it’s large and solid. Built nearly 150 years ago, it’s a unique house. The thick stone walls provide a welcoming coolness in summer and reassuring warmth in winter. It is perfect for larger groups – in the past over 20 people used to live their lives under this same roof – whether it be members of an extended family holidaying together or large groups of friends. The house and grounds are very spacious, guaranteeing that everyone has sufficient space.

The property is perfectly landscaped – a spacious lawn  with a large mature garden and cherry, apple, plum, nut and fig trees surrounded by lavender and roses. A sizeable swimming pool – 4m x 12m is set slightly away from the house with comfortable recliners and umbrellas – with a magical view of the mountains. Shade is provided by the lovely outdoor terrace with archways and a large dining table for al fresco dining. If sun is required there is a marble table to the side of the house for early morning breakfasts or lunches in full sunshine. Finally the small logiatta to the side of the house with its small table and pretty brick walls allows for a relaxed evening aperitivo.


All the bedrooms, 5 in total (of which 3 have a double bed and 2 have twin beds), are very comfortable and decorated with antique furniture. Two of the bedrooms two have attractive wooden beamed ceilings. There are 5 bathrooms (2 en-suite) and 4 original fireplaces. There’s even a library/reading room, in addition to a separate TV-room. Perfect for extended families or friends who want to spread out a little. In the magnificently spacious living room there is a fireplace, a sound system and various relaxing sofas with board games. There is a charming  Marchigiana full size and fully fitted kitchen and dining area. A separate utility room with washing machine, hanging dryer and sink together with an additional fridge. There is an excellent broadband internet with Wifi.

Walk out of the back  door of the holiday home and you have a breathtaking view of the Sibillini Mountains in all their grandeur with the Gran Sasso. Look to the north and you see the classic hilltop town of San Ginesio. 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, vines or grain. Birds of prey circle in the sky and flocks of sheep are often grazing in the nearby fields.

What to do?

Casa Fortezza is literally 2 km from the Sibilini National Park with hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, birding and water sports all close by. The beautiful beaches of the Adriatic are just 40 minutes from the house plus the numerous, close-by classic hill-towns await your discovery and are not to be missed. The provincial capital of Macerata is under 30 minutes by car and is famous for its magnificent amphitheatre, opera and cultural attractions.

If you need a break from all this activity, you can just laze by the pool.
