Beautiful villa with swimming pool and spa in Le Marche

Villa Raffa is a beautiful holiday villa with swimming pool and a spa in Le Marche. The villa is a couple of minutes outside of Montecarotto, a town in the region of Ancona. In addition to an outside pool, there is a spa available for use by guests. The spa has a gigantic bathtub, a shower nook, a couple of lounge chairs, a vast selection of lotions/scents/salts, and a remote control that has the power to completely change the mood of the spa room with a click of a button.

In short Villa Raffa is an old farmhouse in Le Marche countryside converted into a cozy house and filled with love. It is at the end of a long dirt path, so there is absolutely no buzz of traffic or lights from towns for miles. Just you and the stars and complete silence in the middle of the night. Inside, the attention to detail and choice of decoration is exquisite; everything from the teaspoons to the bedding has been picked with care and matches a rustic, warm feeling. If you ever had a dream of staying in an authentic, intimate Italian house, this is the perfect candidate.

There is one honeymoon suite, which comes with a fireplace and a kitchen (complete with basics, all kitchen appliances, and a fridge/freezer). There is also a ‘common room’, which has hundreds of books, boards games, CD’s, marmalades, and teas for your enjoyment. Outside is a BBQ space, ping pong tables, swings, a basketball hoop, and other seasonal treasures.


When the owners recently made some renovations, the utmost attention was paid to any minute details, so that its authenticity could be preserved. The rooms, all provided with a private bathroom and beams at sight, are tastefully furnished in unique styles. Some of them still show the original floor bricks. The house, on three floors, has 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms for a total of 16 beds. All the bedrooms overlook the garden and offer a beautiful view over the surrounding fields and hills. Each room is tastefully furnished in a distinctive style.

On the ground floor there are a semiprofessional kitchen, a dining room with wood stove and direct access to the garden and a bathroom with washing machine. On the first floor there are 4 of the bedrooms, each one with private bathroom. There also is a fully equipped kitchen area with oven, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher and a living room with fireplace. As well as a reading/leisure room with tables and chairs, a wide choice of books (also in foreign languages), parkour games, cd player and many CDs and the Spa. On the second floor there is a large attic room composed of 2 connected bedrooms and 1 bathroom.

The garden is large, about 4,000m2 of extension, overlooking the surrounding fields and hills. Here is the swimming pool with sun loungers and beach umbrellas (open from June to September, May on request), a barbecue, tables and chairs for outdoor dining, a fire pit around which you can sit by the fire while gazing at the stars, a playground for children, a basketball hoop, table tennis and darts.
