Surrounded by vineyards, fruit orchards and olive groves, enjoy beautiful Le Marche landscapes whilst being so close to the sea at Fattoria Ascolana. This sensitively restored farmhouse offers warmth and charm in a perfect location for exploring this alluring region.

Fattoria Ascolana has been in the family for generations and is much loved by its current owners who often spend weekends caring for the organic olive groves and vineyards in the home’s vast grounds, as their ancestors have done over the many years. Indeed, in September guests can take part in the wine harvest and see how the grapes are traditionally prepared or visit in October for the olive harvest – both intimate and truly authentic experiences.

At any time of year to stay at this pretty farmhouse is a joy. The interiors are all about simplicity, characterful style and charm. The main accommodation is on the first floor with its pretty living area and fireplace as well as a modern kitchen with old-fashioned furnishings which creates a typically Italian ambience. Four bedrooms and three bathrooms allow ample space for family and friends and there’s a delightful upper terrace with beautiful valley views. Downstairs, with its own separate entrance, a self-contained floor includes a cosy lounge, well-equipped kitchen and inviting bedroom and shower room, perhaps ideal for visiting grandparents.

There’s a real sense of seclusion here. Peek out over the vineyards towards the sea as you relax by the swimming pool or create feasts by the barbecue as you sip wine produced on the estate. Wander around the olive and fruit trees and marvel in the idyllic surroundings knowing how close you are to the sandy shores of the Adriatic.

It’s such a short drive to the local seaside town or the most energetic could walk down the hill to reach the sea in around half an hour. It’s a lovely place to spend some time – explore the historic buildings in the old quarter and by the sea-front, enjoy lunch in a beachside restaurant or spend the day on the sandy beach or lido. Cyclists can follow the trail all the way to Grottammare, another Adriatic gem with glorious beaches and a beautiful old town on the hillside, classified one of Italy’s prettiest villages.

Spend time exploring historic gems such as Ripatransone, Fermo and Ascoli Piceno, enjoy some sumptuous regional cuisine, sample excellent wines from other local vineyards or, a little further afield, discover the magnificent hiking trails of the Sibillini Mountains. There really is so much of this captivating area to discover.

Only a short distance from the sea, Fattoria Ascolana is surrounded by glorious grounds featuring olive groves, vineyards and landscapes so typical of Le Marche countryside. Located an hour south of Ancona, you are a short drive from a lovely seaside town with golden sandy beaches.

The local seaside town features a medieval quarter alongside early 20th century villas along the seafront near the promenade. Restaurants, bars and cafes can be found in the town as well as shops and your nearest supermarket. History lovers should visit the Archaeological museum as well as admire some of the town’s beautiful historic architecture whilst sport fans can find tennis, water sports and a great cycling trail as far as Grottammare. The sandy beach is especially loved by families and there are places to hire sunbeds and parasols.

This stretch of coastline is known as the Riviera delle Palme and also includes Grottammare, San Benedetto del Tronto and Porto d'Ascoli. Nearby Grottammare is a delight with its charming historic town on the hillside (classified as a Borgo Piu Bello d’Italia) and joyful coastline below with sandy beaches, gently shelving shores, lidos and beachside cafes by the attractive promenade. The palm-backed beaches and lidos of San Benedetto del Tronto are also fantastic, as is the Riserva Naturale Regionale Sentina with a stunning sandy beach.

Alternatively, for a change of scene head north to the incredible landscapes and rugged coastline of the Parco del Conero, about an hour's drive north, with tiny villages, amazing sea vistas and especially wonderful hiking opportunities. Indeed, there is so much of Le Marche to explore – head north to charming Fermo, home to music festivals and outdoor markets in the summer or drive inland to the beautiful town of Ascoli Piceno, famous for its large square, Piazza del Popolo, and a wealth of historic gems. Try some of the delicious local delicacies such as stuffed olives, olive all'ascolana, and sample some of the town’s excellent wines!

Other regional delights to try during your time in Le Marche include brodetto (fish stew) from San Benedetto del Tronto, Porchetta alla Marchigiana (suckling pig), truffles, olive oil and delicious sea-food straight from the Adriatic. There are also many opportunities to sample wines from local vineyards or cantinas with some excellent names produced in the area (Verdicchio, Rosso Conero, Rosso Piceno and Falerio, for example).

The Sibillini Mountains are a little over an hour away or drive even further to the spectacular hiking trails of the Gran Sasso.

Across Le Marche you will find horse-riding, cycling and mountain biking – yet more wonderful ways to admire the amazing scenery of this incredible region.

Families enjoy the best of both worlds at Fattoria Ascolana – just a short distance from a lovely seaside town yet also surrounded by beautiful landscapes so typical of Le Marche, ideal for walking and horse-riding.

It’s just a ten-minute drive (or the most energetic could walk) down to the local town with its restaurants, cafes and shops as well as a glorious sandy beach, attractive promenade and a choice of lidos with sunbeds and parasols to rent for the day. There is also a tennis court in the town whilst history lovers can admire the architecture in the old quarter and visit the town’s museum.

Grottammare is another fantastic place for children with sandy shores and shallow water for great paddling and splashing. Keen bikers can follow the fantastic new cycling trail along the coastline or just find a relaxing beachside café for a coffee and gelato.

  • Would recommend

    on 29/08/2023

    Lovely house in a quiet rural area, quick drive to the beach and restaurants. Very relaxing stay, lots of bbq’s and pool time. Wish the house had a few more amenities such as soap, dishwasher tablets etc but I believe that is common in Italy. Clean house, would recommend.

  • Nice view from the pool

    on 11/08/2023

    Wonderful garden with lots of tomatoes and fruits an nice view from the pool. Beds very comfortable an air conditioning works perfect. We felt very comfortable Very close to beach and lovely villages. We had a nice stay in the house

  • Superb view

    on 27/07/2023

    Perfect place for sharing by several families
    Unabashed and large property, with nice sized rooms. Beautiful garden and superb view. Tommaso is a wonderful host, quick response both before and during the stay. Nothing - advantage with car. It will be long and steep to the nearest shop without a car :)

  • The view is literally to die for

    on 30/06/2023

    We were a group of 7 relatives and we all cannot find the appropriate words to describe our 1 week vacation at this villa. Lets just say that in all the trips to Italy (there have been many) this is by far the best place we stayed. It exceeded our wildest expectations. The view is literally to die for. It is calm, quite, clean, large, away from everything but 10 minutes from everything you needed. We were in June during a heat wave and after our daily sightseeing tour, we could not wait to get refreshed with a dip in the cool pool upon our return. Our host Tommaso, was very gracious, friendly, quick response and even stopped by to meet us and to make sure that everything was properly set up. He makes his own wine from the grapes that are all around the villa, if you get a chance to try it will not be disappointed. Nearby you will find beautiful hill top medieval towns that are less than 30 minutes to 1hr drive. Since this area is relatively unknown to tourists outside of Italy, is unspoiled and the food that can only be described as from another universe. The only problem was that eventually we had to leave.

  • Incredible view of the sea. Wonderful comfortable villa

    on 15/06/2022

    Marchetti Villa was the perfect place to stay and explore the Cupra Marittima area. The villa and pool were clean and comfortable for our family group of 6 adults and 2 kids. Tommaso met us when we arrived and showed us the house, gardens, pool and fruit trees. Tommaso helped us find a cooking lesson with a local lady, which was a wonderful experience. We had an exceptional fixed price supper at PepeNero and another fine dining experience with farm fresh ingredients at the La Fattoria di Lori. We wish we could stay longer than the 5 nights we stayed at Fattoria Ascolana.

  • Landscape!

    on 03/11/2020

    As a family we spent the autumn holidays in Fattoria Ascolana. The communication in advance was extremely friendly. Landscape, period features (old stone floor), friendly landlord, heating, good mattresses!!!! Cleanliness
