Our family of 6 (all adults) stayed at Villa San Rafaello for a week in May. The setting, looking out at Sarnano over the valley with the Apenines beyond, impossible to fault. We strongly recommend the Villa, the owners, and the area.
This was our first visit to the Le Marche region which we found to be just as fantastic as Umbria but with even less bustle but the same mix of hugely friendly locals, medieval hilltop towns and rural peace all around. Damian and /or Sharon were extremely helpful both in helping us to organise the hire of six excellent road bikes and in being on hand to provide help, tips, and local knowledge (including a guided walk into the mountains for us). Our two Villa apartments were clean and spacious. The kitchens were well equipped for our kind of holiday cooking supplemented as it is by visits to the local restaurants which were great value and great fun.More
