Close to the medieval village of Montelparo is a haven of birdsong and tranquillity overlooking a pure green valley with vineyards, orchards and olive groves. This is a smart villa built in traditional style, constructed from 100% local materials and enviably eco: solar panels for hot water, photovoltaic for electricity, a heat-exchanger for underfloor heating but also to keep rooms blissfully cool in summer and ionized water for the fully-fenced pool.
The charming owners live upstairs in a separate apartment but the pool, large gardens and outdoor eating space are all yours. This spacious apartment offers comfortable, sustainable living with a mix of traditional and contemporary.
Take a stroll through the vineyards and taste the award-winning wines at the Vitali cantina next door. Zip off to the sea, quaint Pedaso is closest, the Sibillini Mountains National Park is a must, or visit Ascoli Piceno, an hour’s drive: it’s one of Italy’s loveliest cities.
