Beautiful Farmhouse from 1800
Villa Classica is a traditional Marchigiana farmhouse, with origins in the early 1800’s. It has been lovingly restored according to the old building traditions and is reached by a little used country lane (strada bianca).
It is situated in the Valle di Chienti near the village of Gualdo. On arrival, one finds oneself surrounded by farmland -cultivated with sunflower or wheat-, meadows with flocks of sheep and in the midst of wonderful views. Indeed all rooms, which are comfortably furnished, have pleasant, uninterrupted views. Several look on to the majestic Sibillini Mountains.
The surrounding area is on the outskirts of the beautiful and unspoiled Sibillini National park. The whole area is protected which means ample bird life and an abundance of flowers. It is not unusual to see orchids growing at the side of the road.
You enter the villa via the large living/dining room with a fireplace. There is a TV/video recorder and SKY satellite connection, plus a sound system. From the living room, you can step onto the spacious, shady portico with archway – ideal for al fresco dining. This area faces the old olive tree garden (5000m2) and swimming pool (12×6 m with diving board).
The large kitchen is well-equipped with top-quality appliances including a dishwasher and microwave. Additionally there is a washing machine in the garage.
There are four bedrooms. On the ground floor there is a twin bedroom with a bathroom opposite. On the first floor there are the other three bedrooms: one is a huge master bedroom with en-suite bathroom equipped with a Jacuzzi bath. A twin and a small double bedroom share another bathroom.
Extra bed, over 8 persons, € 200 per week. With 5 or less person only three bedrooms will be available.
Ancona and Perugia airports are just little over an hour away (inexpensive flights with Ryanair).
The village of Gualdo just ‘around the corner’ offers basic shopping, banking, etc. Market day is on Tuesday.
The nearby town of Sarnano, 10 min. away offers most services, pizzerias, restaurants, supermarket, tennis courts and hospital. Also a health spa, Fonte San Giacomo with its mineral water spring and beauty treatment. Also here you have a local market which is held every Thursday. Sarnano is notable as one of the few towns in Le Marche to preserve its medieval town center completely.
What to do?
Horse riding, mountain biking, paragliding, trekking, etc. are available in the nearby Monti Sibillini National Park.
Within half an hour’s driving you can reach places of great historical and cultural interest: Sarnano, a perfectly restored little town that sits on a hill and is built in a spiral fashion around it. Amandola, a town noted for its antique tradition of ebony furniture and marquetry artistry. Caldarola, with its castles and Serrapetrona famous for its elliptic square, its palaces and mansions and its summer festivals. Then there is Camerino, the ducal city of antique magnificence.
The Roman ruins of the antique town of Urbisaglia are worth visiting along the road to Macerata. They include a magnificent amphitheatre, which, during the summer months, stages a Greco-Roman theatre festival. Visiting Macerata could satisfy an interest in the melodramatic opera. The Sferisterio can be found there, the second Italian arena after Verona. The works of great artists are put on display every year, drawing attention from all over Europe.
Near the Conero National Park coastline is Recanati, where Giacomo Leopardi was born. Furthermore only one hour in car from the farmhouse you can find the great beaches of the Adriatic Coast like Porto San Giorgio and Sirolo.
