Drive through patchwork fields and up a winding road to two stone and brick houses standing side by side. Sabine and her architect husband have created two apartments in each using natural materials such as stone, wood and travertine marble, and furnished them with handmade décor and vintage market finds.
Sabine is warm and generous, popping by daily to make sure her guests have everything they need. Find your fridge stocked with local goodies, help yourself to vegetables and herbs from the garden or fruit from the orchard, and eat out on your shaded patio.
Borrow e-bikes and explore the surrounding countryside, or sample wines at Cantina Broccanera, 15 minutes away. The immense Frasassi Caves are half an hour’s drive, the unspoilt coastline of Parco del Conero is an hour away. Return for a swim in the infinity pool, which is set in a garden filled with aromatic plants – lavender, rosemary, thyme, jasmine, rose.
