Facilities at our Villa in Le Marche
There are plenty of sunbeds around the swimming pool and hammocks in the gardens and down in the vineyard. A children’s play area helps entertain the younger guests and badminton, bocci and volleyball are available to all.
The Swimming Pool at our Le Marche farmhouse
Our 14-metre pool is adjacent to the Villa and enjoys incredible views. The size of the pool and the south-facing sunbathing area are large enough to give all guests their own space. From the raised pool area, you can delight in the uninterrupted views of Sarnano, the Le Marche hills and the Sibillini mountains, far away from the stresses of normal life.
The pool is open from the end of May until late September. Have a look at the pool category within the Le Marche Villa gallery for a better idea.
The Le Marche Villa Courtyard (cortile)
Between the Villa and the barn we have an indoor courtyard garden or cortile, a glorious tranquil spot to relax on your Italian self-catering holiday with a drink or to eat alfresco.
Enjoy the spectacular view through arch to Sarnano and the surrounding lush green countryside of Marche and the Sibillini Mountains beyond. At night, with the soft lighting and candles on the tables, it is an ideal spot to unwind after a busy day of sun-bathing, sight-seeing and festas. Visit our Le Marche villa gallery pages for images of the courtyard.
The gardens at our Italian villa
There is ample space for relaxing in the Villa’s gardens and at least 5 spots dedicated to alfresco eating on your holiday in Italy, to ensure that each Italian apartment has an area of their own in which to relax and enjoy the Marche views.
The Italian Villa gardens have been landscaped and numerous trees have been planted to create interest, provide shade and to reduce carbon emissions. The organic vegetable and herb gardens provide guests with a daily supply of tasty treats at no extra cost.
Recent crops have included bay, marjoram, peppermint, lavender, rosemary, basil, wild mint, fennel and sage, pears, plums, figs and cherries. Also walnuts and hazelnuts, lettuces, rocket, tomatoes, aubergine, chillis, courgettes, squashes, broad beans, peas, potatoes, carrot, onion, garlic, squash, melon, cabbage, chick-peas, cauliflower, chard and chicoria.
