A beautifully appointed house on the way up Mont Piselli, with owners on hand to welcome us and assist with the pizza oven! Such a peaceful setting with stunning views of the Tronto Valley and on a clear day the sea beyond. In ten days we sledged up the mountain as there was still snow at the top in March, the children swam in the sea, waded across a river to sulphur springs and admired the sculptures along the harbour wall at San Benedetto Del Tronto - you need a car to visit these wonderful places, but the local area is just beautiful and surprisingly varied with hill top fortresses and villages and the stunning Roman town of Ascoli Piceno below, with what has become my favourite cafe in the world, Cafe Melletti, a collonaded art deco cafe bar in the Piazza Del Popollo, not to mention a roman bridge, wash house and amphitheatre. We were welcome to wander the property's seven acres and to meet the donkeys which our children adored, as well as the cats and chickens. There is plenty of...

Management response:

Thank You very much. It was a pleasure to have your company for those ten days and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

We had a marvellous stay at Il Roccolo and were welcomed by David and Martine with warm hospitality which included on the last night a live demonstration of how to use a 'real' Pizza oven to rival the best of Pizzas Naples can offer!
The Apartment was very spacious and an ideal retreat after some long days on the road and the private outdoor garden and terrace really made us feel we were in a home away from home.
Furthermore it was a bonus to have Ascoli Piceno at the bottom of the hill to top up on food and culture as and when needed as well as being able to ascend Mount Piselli when we just wanted to commune with nature.
We certainly look forward to staying with David and Martine again and would recommend Il Roccolo as a true gem.

About the neighbourhood
Situated on the flanks of Monte Piselli, the cottage overlooks the majestic town of Ascoli Piceno and the Tronto valley looking towards the Adriatic sea. In among the mountains, close to lovely hill top towns, with great wine producers, great views, great walks, half an hour from the Monte Sibillini and Monti della Laga national parks and half an hour from the sea. There is a beautiful outdoor pool just 3 minutes drive away. Il Roccolo is well placed for exploring the beautiful regions of Le Marche and Abruzzo, whether it is walking or cycling in the Monti della Laga or Sibillini National Parks, lazing on the beaches of the Adriatic or exploring the numerous hilltop towns and villages across the region. The hilltop towns are renowned for holding festivals throughout the summer months.
