Over the course of our stay, Gianni and Claudia became dear friends who will be in our lives for years to come. Villa Piagge, the thousand-year old country house, is perfectly appointed and has the best view on earth. If you like figs picked warm from the tree, and the scent of jasmine, enjoyed from a gazebo overlooking a valley, this is the place for you. If you like remarkably beautiful scenery, historic hill towns, utterly fantastic food, and the kindest people on the planet, look no further. And if you're a hiker, chances are good Gianni and his mountaineer buddies will take you on some breathtaking adventures. It's paradise, plain and simple.
After a very friendly reception by the owners we started appreciating the many outstanding assets of Le Piagge. Spacious, well decorated, with many personal details,and well equiped, especially the kitchen. The private garden offers gorgeous views. The immediate surroundings provide nice walks and attractive villages. The natural parks of Gola and Monte Cucco are ideal for some more ambitious hiking. For preparing those walks I recommend the Kompass 1: 50.000 map Cagli, Fabriano, San Severino Marche (no. 2465). Also the nearby city of Fabriano is worth a trip. More usefull suggestions in the Marche guidebook edited by Touring Club Italiano and in the many brochures to be found in the house. And every time it was a delight to return to our lovely cottage...
Thanks a lot, Gianni & Claudia!
