Description of the Amandola vacation home rental
Casa Grande takes up the larger part of 'Sei Camini' - two restored conjoined farmhouses which share a loggia (entrance hall) and pool but are otherwise completely independent.
The property is on 3 floors - the Ground floor has a large kitchen, huge sitting room with wood burning stove and adjacent dining area with expandable table for up to 12. Pale pink terracotta tiles throughout the ground floor, french windows to the gardens and many original features. The 1st floor has three bedrooms - two doubles and one twin plus a showerrom and separate bathroom with wonderful views from the bath! The top floor makes a great 'Kidszone' with two twin bedrooms, a sitting room with sofabed and hanging pods for children and an additional bathroom.
The property is set in over 2 hectares of rolling meadows, boarded on the north by fields of sunflowers or corn, with a steep hillside of mixed deciduous woodland (full of delightful birdsong) to the west, a vineyard, fruit trees, fireflies, lavender, almond and olive trees. To top it all, there is a wonderful swimming pool (shared with Casa Piccola) to keep cool during those hot, lazy days. A sense of peace and quiet pervades.
Sei Camini commands an imposing position at just over 550 metres above sea level. At night, the stars are breathtaking and the twinkling views of the distant hill villages are delightful.
Casa Grande may be rented along with Casa Piccola to make a wonderful base for friends and family reunions sleeping up to 18 in total.
In winter we recommend the house only for up to 6 people as the top bedrooms are not heated - the prices reflect the lower capacity. In UK school holidays we prefer to rent the two houses together - please see our own site for details.

Area Info
The Marche Region is bordered by the Umbria, Emilia Romagna, Abruzzo and Lazio regions of Italy. In the east, the Le Marche coastline is lapped by the warm waters of the Adriatic Sea and in the west is protected by the Sibillini Mountains, part of the Appenine chain.
From the gardens there are wonderful views over our local hill villages of Penna San Giovanni and Monte San Martino where you can find great reasonable restaurants and local shops. Our nearest towns are Sarnano (wonderful medieval architecture) and Amandola (great ice creams!) - both have weekly markets where you can buy mouth watering local produce.
Beaches and great seafood restaurants are about 40 minutes away and shoe lovers can pick up fantastic Italian leather bargains at the factory outlet shops towards the coast.
