The
Experience

Guests keen to explore this rich area – on foot or by car – who like things simple, to cook and to eat out under the wisteria-draped pergola and by the landscaped pool, will surely love this quiet place where butterflies, bees and guests help themselves to fruit and vegetables.

There’s a memorable quality to the light and it floods into the house through many windows, illuminating living areas and super-equipped kitchen (once stables) and, up ancient stone steps, bedrooms; the master room has a mezzanine with glass balcony and studio.

You may sample the Avis’s home-grown wine and olive oil and nearby vineyards like Tavignano and Zaccagnini offer great tastings. Eating out is a pleasure too, from seafood down on the Adriatic to the local eatery where gourmet burgers are served with local microbrewery beers.

Location

The neighbourhood

This once humble farm, set in a rural location in the gentle Marche landscape, is 35 minutes from Ancona airport. There’s a restaurant within 2k; Filottrano, the nearby town, is 4k. There’s a train station 15k away in Jesi, The Milan of Le Marche; Loreto and Macerata are equidistant, for art, opera and architecture. It’s half an hour’s drive to the Conero beaches and charming villages. And there’s a great choice of local vineyards, markets and festivals

Local points of interest from Jerry & Irene Avis

  • Sant Elia is very rural, standing in its own 4.5 hectares of olives, vines and garden. It was described by one guest as "A slice of heaven" Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, unwind and recharge at Sant Elia. Peace and tranquillity awaits.
  • Le Marche is a surprisingly diverse region of Central Italy from mountains with their walking trails and winter skiing, through rolling countryside to the glorious Adriatic beaches with many top quality fish restaurants. All within easy reach of Sant Elia.
  • For followers of fashion, Filottrano is famous for its tailoring, with factories producing clothes for all the major designers. Le Marche is also a centre of the shoe industry, with Prada, Tods, and numerous other brands having outlets nearby.
  • We are surrounded by history and culture. Art or music we have it all. Marche has over 100 opera houses, the most famous being in Macerata, just 30 mins. away. Art lovers can follow the trail of Lotto and Crivelli, and enjoy the galleries in nearby Jesi.
  • Le Marche boasts wines of exceptional quality. Reds such as Rosso Conero and Rosso Piceno, together with the more familiar white of the Verdcchio grape. Sant Elia has its own small vineyard too, producing lovely Red, White and Rosé wines.
  • Services offered for an additional fee. A Style consultant to guide and help you when visiting the fashion outlets. A cook and cleaner. Towel changeover. Fitness Training sessions. See our website, http://www.santelialifestyle.co.uk/

Introducing

Jerry & Irene Avis

Irené and Jerry are British and passionate about their bit of Italy - the scene of many of their family reunions and retreats. Having renovated Sant Elia beautifully, in 2016 they began generously sharing it with guests. Irené is a fitness coach whose talent for gardening and decoration is very evident here. She and Jerry are foodies too and Jerry now puts his entrepreneurial skills behind the production of their rather good wine.
