The gentle rolling hills of the province of Ascoli Piceno, Le Marche, are the perfect place for those who want to start a small accommodation business, offering relax to their guests, while having themselves the possibility to enjoy a slower lifestyle.
Whether you wish to manage it as an agriturismo or as a high-end holiday rental villa, this property near Ripatransone has much to offer: measuring about 990 sq.m., it offers 6 suites, 3 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, 4 guest/services bathrooms, a gym and an amazing SPA.
The property is fully restored according to the requirements of sustainable and eco-friendly architecture, featuring heating fixtures, water-based varnishes for the walls, solar panels and a photovoltaic system for the self-production of energy.
The main building, an old casale dating back to at least last century, was demolished and rebuilt between 2007 and 2010, meaning that you have a super performing building in terms of quality and energy efficiency, inside an old shell. It develops on 3 floors divided as follows:
The ground floor is mainly occupied by the dining area/restaurant, which is served by a fully equipped, professional kitchen, provided with all equipment and services a chef and his staff may need.
A small bar and several sitting areas, one close to the fireplace, let you enjoy a drink any time of the day, anywhere you feel more comfortable in.
On the opposite side, you can find 2 suites and a double bedroom for disabled. All bedrooms benefit of an exit out to the garden with private sitting space.
The floor is served by a number of French doors, to let light in and for a lovely, continuous flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces, including the 60 sq.m. portico.
This floor is the sleeping area, which features 6 suites – all with a large double bedroom, a sitting area and a bathroom. The nicest part is that 5 bedrooms enjoy a balcony, where you can have your breakfast served or enjoy a fully private, en-suite aperitif overlooking the vineyards, the rolling hills and the calanchi.
All rooms are spacious, comfortable, perfect for a couple, as well as for families with kids. They are all equipped with a fan coil for the production of hot and cold air.
The basement is the leisure area, with gym, massage rooms, changing rooms and an amazing SPA with sauna, Turkish bath and an outstanding 12×4,6m heated swimming pool. This is the space where you can hide away to find peace of mind, but it is also what will sell you many nights if you want to start a quality accommodation business: a Boutique Hotel in the Marche region or a luxury holiday rental villa.
Being a property that has been conceived as eco-friendly since the very beginning, much attention has been paid to the systems: solar thermal panels produce hot water, the photovoltaic panels support the electrical system, while 2 tanks allow the reuse of rainwater.
This amazing property in Marche is surrounded by 18 hectares of land, inclusive of 2.16ha of vineyard, 50 olive trees, which guarantee good organic olive oil for internal consumption and 12.7 hectares of arable land.
The area used as a garden is large, spacious and, in addition to the parking area, includes an 8x4m swimming pool with solarium located in one of the most beautiful spots in the province. Thanks to its dominant position on top of a hill you can enjoy a 360° view.
The property is placed in a breathtaking hilltop location, with stunning views over the rolling hills, hilltop medieval villages, calanchi (sort of badlands) and, from a distance, the Sibillini Mountains. It is surrounded by nature and gentle hills but not isolated, being close to all main services.
The location in the middle of the province of Ascoli Piceno, will let your guests and you reach in 30-40 minutes by car both amazing Ascoli Piceno and its lovely piazza and the mountains; the coast is just 15min away. And if you love walking around medieval villages, some of the nicest are just a few km away, as Ripatransone – with its narrowest alley in Italy, Monte Vidon Combatte, Ortezzano – and its wine festival, Cossignano and many others.
