The Experience

The Monti Sibillini National Park is close, a spectacular mountain refuge famous for its eagles and wolves, and its villages. All around the house (you must negotiate a track to find it) are hills and valleys of great beauty, and the handsome little town of Amandola is minutes away, with one of those piazzas that remind you how important beauty once was – all such a relief from the crowded coast. The greatest draw of them all is the town of Ascoli Piceno, one of Italy’s finest. Make sure you visit ‘Caffé Meletti’, it is almost as seductive as the Caffé Florian in Venice. La Querceta itself is a big, handsome old farmhouse on a hill, with huge bedrooms encased in fine wooden beams and floors, and the best beds imaginable with lots of snowy down and crisp white cotton. It is all impeccable, under the careful eye of Giovanna – low-key, kind and modest, but a good cook and purveyor of cakes. With the garden and pool and the long views you may not want to move – but you should get out to see both the National Park and Ascoli.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Giovanna Galbiati

  • Situated 7 kilometres north-east of Amandola atop the Marnacchian Hills, La Querceta benefits from a beautiful view of the Sibillini Mountains and the surrounding hills sloping towards the sea.
  • In the surrounding area you can find several charming medieval villages and ‘cities of culture’, among them Ascoli Piceno, Fermo, Smerillo, Sarnano, and Monte San Martino, the latter conserving such artistic treasures as the Crivelli brothers’ altarpieces.
  • For those looking for a more active holiday, we can organise themed breaks such as truffle hunting in the Autumn or a wild orchid photo trail in the Spring, and guests can also go hiking, horse riding or cycling.
  • We can also arrange courses in yoga, outdoor watercolour painting, paper-making, pasta cookery classes, and more.
  • Go truffle hunting, foraging for wild herbs/leaves/ berries, saffron picking, seeing local honey production, Giovanna will show you dishes that you can make with your findings.
  • Also available, orchid hunting in the spring with local expert and horse-riding.
