Rural setting with stunning views of rolling hills and mountains plus private fenced terraced pool. If peace and beautiful surroundings are what you are looking for Casa Lola has it in bucket loads. A super family friendly (perfect for young children) villa, with fine local food, good restaurants and Italian weather make this the perfect place to spend your holiday.
Apart from the glorious Italian weather, renaissance art & wonderful food, enjoy some of the most beautiful walking Italy has to offer, or just relax by the pool & soak up the beauty of the region. If you tire of the mountain views and hill top villages, you can head off to the Italian Riviera for the day. It takes about 50 mins to get there and once you have chosen your resort, be it San Benedetto or Porto Recanati, you can wallow in the warm sea, and eat copious amounts of sea food as you rest beneath the colourful umbrellas running along the beaches. There are some great restaurants and markets to be found in the region. On Wednesday mornings you can find local fresh fruit, veg and bric-a-brac in Amandola, and on Thursday morning a larger version of this in Sarnarno. There are plenty of restaurants serving delicious local food nearby.
Casa Lola is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty close to the Sibillini national park. There is a lake at the bottom of our valley with a deer park close by. Many medieval hill top towns and villages dot the wonderful landscape and although not as rich in art as Tuscany there are many wonderful galleries and cities to be explored such as Ascoli Piceno. The walking is spectacular and local cuisine delicious. The 360 degree views from the house are amazing with distant sea views to the East & The magnificent Sibillini mountains to the West. Le Marche is a fabulously beautiful place, whatever the weather!

There is a large terracotta terrace looping around the front and side of the house with a Wisteria pergola where guests sit under for those long lazy summer lunches. For the more energetic there is a large games building that houses a trampoline, ping pong, pool and table football. The garden stretches below the property and to the west. There are fig, olive and fruit trees that guests are welcome to pick from and eat when ripe.

For those of you that love walking, Casa Lola is on the edge of the Sibillini National Park & a short drive away there are some of the most beautiful treks be undertaken in Italy. Possibly the most famous is the journey up to Lago di Pilato (it is said that Pontius Pilate is buried here), and also Gola dell'Infernaccio (Hell's Gorge) where you can visit the hermit monk, perched at the top of the crag with his hand-built church. These mountains are every bit as dramatic as the landscape of the Dolomites with refuges to be found in isolated spots. The local walking near to house is outstanding as well; it's possible to walk to Amandola along pathways. It's a 1/2 hour steep walk down to the lake where you can get a cold beer from the friendly Osteria to cool you down!
