Beautiful villa with private pool in Le Marche

L’Antica Sapienza is a beautiful villa with private pool in Le Marche. The villa is located in a serene and rural position, adjacent to the majestic Monti Sibillini National Park. However, it is not completely isolated; in fact, the villa is only ten minutes from the bustling town of Tolentino and SS77. It is an exceptionally comfortable and welcoming stone and brick villa dating from approximately the turn of the 20th century and has been immaculately restored by local craftsmen using original stones and beams. The villa is suitable for families or groups of friends as next to the villa there is a small cottage perfect for two.

Beautifully designed and maintained gardens lead down from the entrance gates, past the house and pool to the hedged surroundings. There is a sun-drenched terrace on the south side furnished with a granite topped outdoor table and seating for eight from where one overlooks the classically shaped (10 metre x 5 metre) glamorous pool. The pool is equipped with sunbeds sun loungers and umbrellas. A solar heated shower adjacent to a gas barbecue completes the outdoor amenities. At the rear of the house is a spacious loggia (covered terrace) from where the view across the valley to the towers of Regnano and St Angelo is simply stunning. The loggia is also equipped for dining with a solid teak dining setting for eight to take advantage of the alternative perspective of the countryside. When one hears the bells chiming in the distance from the other side of the valley, it is a truly memorable experience.

The grounds include flowers, fragrant hedges, a herb garden and an established orchard. The silver-leaved branches of numerous olive trees are metres from the garden. The pool is meticulously maintained, and solid teak sun lounges, deck chairs, and umbrellas are all provided, giving the place the air of a luxury resort – albeit an extremely peaceful one!
