Il Castellano is a large country house, perfectly restored with respect to its original character. Situated in the San Ginesio district, it lies within half an hour of both the Adriatic coast and the Sibillini mountain range and National Park. It stands at roughly 450m above sea level in a very peaceful location in its own Mediterranean wood, and surrounded by a large lawn. The house sleeps 14 with 3 double rooms, 6 singles and one twin, with three bathrooms each with shower. There is a large swimming pool set amongst an olive grove with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.
There is a strong WiFi internet connection at the house.
Perhaps the most attractive feature are the woods which stretch behind the house for 5 acres, with pathways, benches and tables, ideal for picnicking, or just to enjoy the beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. All for exclusive use by the guests.
Outside the house.: Surrounding the house is a large area of land, part of which comprises the lawn, but mainly consisting of a wood set with walkways and paths. Surrounding the wood are fields, which are cultivated throughout the year. The whole area is beset by trees and shrubs of Mediterranean origin, such as oaks, Holm-oaks, olives, willows, fruit trees, and brooms.
Also, the area is populated by many animals, which roam freely: you can easily come across hares, pheasants, squirrels, deer, wild boar, porcupine, etc.
To the south of the house flows the Entogge stream, along which run paths accessible by foot or mountain bike which allow total immersion into the natural environment.
Otherwise you can simply relax and bathe in the sun, or read a book beneath the shade of a hundred-year-old oak tree.
Immediately around the house is an large garden with outside seating, sun chairs, umbrellas, a wood fire and BBQ for cooking, and an outside shower.
Horse-riding and tennis are both available nearby.
There is also a large swimming-pool as well as tennis courts in the nearby town of San Ginesio (10 mins by car).
A bank, chemist's, Post Office and supermarket are all available in both San Ginesio, and Colmurano.Get the full listing »
