A stunning classic Italian house on the edge of a thriving village set in 10 acres of rolling countryside in the foothills of the mountains. Being only 9 kilometres from Ascoli Piceno, the jewel in Marches’ crown, it is within easy reach of Italian culture and only a 35 minute drive from the bustle of the beautiful beaches of the Adriatico. The Sibilini mountains sit behind the house and in front are the panoramic views of the spectacular Gran Sasso range.
The house offers total privacy – but at the end of the drive is one of the best restaurants of the Piceno area and a working village with all the traditional amenities (easy walking distance).

The pool has a state of the art cover which rolls on and off easily so providing solar heated water and swimming under cover if preferred.
