The
Experience

Down the steep winding road from Montelparo – with a thrilling final lap to the house – is a haven of birdsong and tranquillity overlooking a pure green valley with vineyards, river and swathes of sunflowers. This is a smart villa built in traditional style, constructed from 100% local materials and enviably eco: solar panels for hot water and underfloor heating, a heat-exchanger to keep rooms blissfully cool in summer and ionized water for the fully-fenced pool. The charming owners live above your ground-floor apartment but the pool and outdoor eating space are all yours. White walls, terracotta tiles and practical furniture make for easy-living; top that off with comfortable bedrooms and a neat kitchen and you’ve got all you need for a relaxed stay. Zip off to the sea, quaint Pedaso is closest, the Frasassi Caves are a must, or visit Ascoli Piceno, a half-hour drive: it’s one of Italy’s loveliest cities. Roberto is happy to show you around the land and share his knowledge, vines are a stroll away, and the vineyard views may inspire you to arrange a tasting at the award-winning winery nearby.

Reviews

This was my 9th year of returning to this amazing villa with the most stunning scenery and tranquil setting. The villa is set in the most wonderful area in Montelparo with fascinating towns and villages to explore. Beaches and mountains just 30 minutes away.There are a wide variety of local restaurants to chose from , serving authentic regional dishes including the local wines. We visited some amazing towns with some wonderful history mixed in with some beautiful local products made in this region. We also enjoyed some gorgeous days relaxing by the stunning pool with beautiful views.

This was our 9 year on returning to this wonderful apartment , this year we had new owners Nikki and Roberto and we must say they gave us such a warm welcome back and to us it always feels like home. The garden Roberto has worked hard on to such a high quality with his gorgeous home grown vegetables which was supplied to us fresh each day with courgette, figs , pears and a lovely spaghetti squash. Nikki has used her homely skills and supplied wonderful organic toiletries and beautiful bed linen with gorgeous soft towels. The local wine tasting is a must which is grown on the villas vineyard.

I had a wonderful stay at this beautiful villa, set in the most amazing grounds with the best views and scenery. It is very remote, so a car definitely needed for the windy roads, but utterly picturesque! It was a very clean and modern space, and the pool was the perfect size to go for a dip and admire the views. There is also a pizza oven in the garden, which made a great dinner one of the nights. The hosts are brilliant and very welcoming, with plenty of advice to give about the area, as there are many little towns around to explore and enjoy. Would highly recommend!

We recently stayed at the Villa in the Vineyard on our honeymoon, along with our 12 month old daughter. The hosts really could not do enough for us. We were provided with a welcome pack which included sparkling wine, cereal, bread, fruit and milk; we had a brand new cot, high chair and paddling pool for our daughter; The hosts were always on hand with handy travel tips for excursions; we were even invited into their apartment one evening for homemade stone baked pizza! To top things off the property and location were wonderful which made for an unforgettable honeymoon!

Villa in the Vineyard is situated in a breathtaking mountainous location which is close to authentic Italian towns and to the coast. Waking up to sunshine and amazing views was what made my stay- it's a great place to relax and clear your head! The facilities inside the villa were excellent and it was great to be provided with local wine from the vineyard, fresh bread and vegetables from the host's vegetable garden. We especially loved visiting Ascoli Piceno and spending a day on the beach at San Benedetto. The hosts were very friendly and gave us great recommendations- definitely returning!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Roberto & Nikki Mattei

  • The monthly antique market in the city of Ascoli Piceno, with paintings, antiques and memorabilia through the decades. Take a coffee at Cafe Meletti in the Piazza del Popolo, stroll around the stalls and soak up the Italian atmosphere.
  • Have a walk up the road to our neighbours who manage the vineyards and produce excellent DOC wines. We can arrange a wine tasting visit for you in their winery. Have an afternoon snooze in a hammock in the shade of the olives trees at the villa.
  • Take a stroll around our beautiful garden or surrounding vineyards, 19 acres in total, and be amazed at our stunning views across fields of sunflowers and orchards, up to the medieval hilltop towns and views to the snow-capped Sibillini mountains.
  • Servigliano is one of our favourite towns with its arched entrances, historic piazza and smart cafes/gelaterias. Buy fresh food from the artisan producers - salami, prosciutto, fresh pasta, local wine and the famous Ascoli stuffed olives. Enjoy al fresco!
  • Forty minutes to the Sibillini Mountains National Park with its stunning mountain range, waterfalls, and rivers. This is a perfect place for walking, hiking, horse riding, mountain biking or wild swimming in the lakes - great for a hot summer day.
  • The golden beaches of the Adriatic with its blue flags are also 30 mins away. A visit to Conero is a must with its stunning coastline and clear waters. Sit outside at a beachside restaurant and eat the freshest fish and seafood with a chilled local wine.
