Bastide Cupramontana (Italy)

In one of the most beautiful areas of the Marche Region, amongst the protected area of the Colli Esini that surrounds the medieval village of Cupramontana, there sits a unique property of a former farmhouse and annex that have been completely rebuilt and renovated. These two buildings are joined by a courtyard and the land also includes ruins of another farmhouse. The house with its annex focus the viewer’s attention on all the architectural details and arrangements that complete the property. Unique contemporary architecture was born from the successful collaboration between the excellent taste and aesthetic sense of the owners and the high professional expertise of local architect Silvia Brocchini. The residential buildings take on the appearance of a small village resulting from the meticulous renovation that transformed the volumes, once the ruins of a rural building, into a prestigious home that won the “InArchitettura 2020” award for Best Renovation in the Marche. Set like a gem within the beautiful, natural environment, the dwellings adapt perfectly to the terrain, integrating into the surrounding landscape and following the natural course of the gentle slopes. Arriving at the property, a parking area excludes the view of cars and introduces via stairs and small terraced areas expertly planted with local aromatic plants and centuries-old olive trees. The simple garden beautifully recalls the monastic design of the Hortus Conclusus with the perimeter walls replaced by infinite views towards the horizons. Avoiding any limitation, the eye takes great pleasure in the spectacular panorama of the Colli Esini that surrounds the property. The dwellings stand on their own land of just over one hectare. Apart from the garden, the rest of the land is left to agricultural cultivation, typical of the area with a splendid olive grove, some fruit trees and arable land. All around the views sweep over the villages perched on ridges and a succession of agricultural plots with vineyards, resulting in an infinite patchwork of shapes and colors stretching as far as the visible Adriatic Sea. The demolition and reconstruction of the house and its annex were carried out by local artisans between 2016 and 2018. The architect and the owners wanted, as far as possible, to maintain the harmony of the original building by reusing the materials. The patina of antiquity is not lost despite the use of most modern materials and technologies. The renovation was done in accordance with the laws on urban planning with the most current construction techniques aimed at promoting anti-seismic resistance. The exterior and interior appear clean, elegant, and sober, all denoting a rare yet sophisticated simplicity of living. The result is nothing short of exciting. Both buildings are developed on two floors with split levels. The main residence occupies an area of 142 square meters, net (200 gross sqm), distributed inside as follows: entrance hallway that via a small flight of stairs leads to the kitchen, dining room and adjoining living room, these same rooms can also be reached directly from the garden through sliding French windows. From the living room the large window leads to the solarium patio below; on this same floor is a guest bathroom and technical rooms with laundry. Below the solarium terrace there is a comfortable storage room and garden tool shed. From the entrance / hallway, the internal staircase leads to the upper floor where there is ample space for the master area consisting of a bedroom with a small private study, a walk in and out wardrobe and a bathroom with tub and separate shower area. On this floor but at a slightly higher staggered level, always following the course of the ground, reachable both from the same internal staircase and directly from the outside, therefore potentially autonomous, is a large studio apartment that can accommodate a second bedroom with a predisposed chimney for fireplace and an inserted washbasin. In the nearby second building, rebuilt on two floors, occupies a net area of approx. 32,5 square meters, net (45 sqm. gross), a beautiful studio is situated on the first floor and has been created with a magnificent view and entrance from the garden. On the lower floor is a bedroom with shower and a separate lavatory. This floor gives guests privacy from the main building. Adjacent is an outdoor shower and a small area with fixed table and bench made of stone, ancient terracotta, and exposed polished concrete. The interiors of the buildings consist of clean lines, resulting in a bright and ethereal living environment. The white color, the powder-colored resin floors, the natural sandstone, and the use of oak, create a natural atmosphere that unifies the various levels. Particular attention was given to the design of the openings of different sizes that offer emotional views to the outside as a succession of landscape works of art. In the kitchen, a small original splayed window frames the 12th century abbey of Beato Angelo. Even the roof assumes a leading role in this design and construction: inside the structure that fulfills the dual structural and aesthetic purpose made with lamellar beams, trusses, and ancient terracotta tiles. The external original tiles, act as gutters, conveying the rainwater to a sophisticated and ingenious way that is invisible from the outside. Much of the furniture was custom built so that the interiors were homogenous in colors and materials and that the spaces were exploited to the maximum with walls and small storage compartments. The travertine slab stands out above all, a single slab creating the kitchen island. Even the design of the garden has not been left to chance. It has been wisely designed by creating green spaces alternating with the convivial and relaxation areas whose position opens to different exposures and orientations at different times of day and night. Between the buildings a small square has been created where a table with concrete benches hint to the modernity of the work. All the works were made by local artisans. The house and its annex are equipped with all essential and basic services such as connection to the water and electricity service. Underfloor heating installed with a gas-fired radiant system. The property is also connected with WiFi and features built-in sound system and a hidden large projection screen for home cinema. A short distance from the house and as part of the property, there is the ruin of another rural building which could be rebuilt to accommodate additional living space if desired. It would also be possible to build a swimming pool. The property is only 5 minutes from the center of Cupramontana in the Province of Ancona. Easily reached is the main route SS76 Rome-Ancona which leads to the nearby Ancona – Falconara airport in 30 minutes and then to the Adriatic Sea.

Bastide Serra San Quirico (Italy)

This charming property is a country house, perfect as a permanent residency or as a holiday home, that you may also use partially or totally for accommodation purposes, thus getting an income. This amazing property is composed of 2.37 hectares of agricultural land, with a big main building, and several annexes useful for cultivation purposes. All set in a quiet and unspoilt setting, with superb views of the Marche rolling hills and Monte San Vicino. The Main Building The main building is an original marchigiano farmhouse completely restored with a rustic but elegant taste. The farmhouse is characterized by the typical Marche architecture with exposed beams and original terracotta tiles. It is currently managed as an agriturismo with good profits. The total area of the main farmhouse is about 400 square meters on two levels: Ground Floor: On the ground floor you find the reception room, the restaurant with fireplace, and the large professionally equipped kitchen: although a farm stay has no legal obligation to provide meals, in the tourists’ collective imagination, this kind of accommodation is the place where you can sleep, but also taste delicious dishes of the local tradition, made with organic farming products. This agriturismo is all of this, it’s true and pure and has excellent reviews. Also, on the ground floor there are 2 guest bathrooms for the restaurant, a double bedroom and a single bedroom, which share a private bathroom. Attached to the main building there’s a wing, accessible both from the kitchen and the garden, where there’s the staff bathroom, a spacious storage, a technical room and a bread oven. For those who wish to use the property as private home, you just need to change the professional kitchen with a more “homely” one, and there you are: the ground floor is a lovely, spacious living area.

Here you can find 4 very spacious double bedrooms, all with en-suite bathroom. The landing is occupied by a cozy sitting room with monumental, original fireplace, where guests can sit and socialize. All rooms are bright and from all of them you can enjoy a unique view: some overlook the ancient bell tower of the Renaissance church of San Paterniano, others enjoy a view over the valley and the “calanchi”, the typical ground erosions.

In fact, the barn can be renovated, enlarged and used as a home for the farmer. The Land The property is surrounded by 2.37 hectares of agricultural land, in addition to a garden set on 2 levels: the first level is a spacious flat terrace with trees, arranged with tables to dine out and relax under the shade.

The agricultural land is currently cultivated with lavender from which amazing essences are extracted for the fragrance of the laundry, as well as oils to be used as room fragrances.

Bastide Senigallia (Italy)

This typical marchigiano farmhouse has been beautifully restored by its owners and now provides a superb family villa. Located in the quiet countryside of Le Marche, it enjoys superb views and plenty of privacy, with all services close by. The owners have ensured that the house provides excellent living spaces and the outdoor areas are comfortable: an ideal place to relax and precious time in the open air. The House The house was completely rebuilt from scratch, thus ensuring the quality and comfort of a new building inside a traditionally-looking shell. Measuring about 290 sq.m., inclusive of a 30 sq.m. panoramic pergola, the house develops on 2 floors, divided as follows: Ground Floor: As you step into from the front door, you get amazed by the double height ceiling, that gives a feeling of grandeur and fineness. The design of the house is open plan on the ground floor. To the right of the entrance hall, there is a dining area, connected to a fully-equipped kitchen with modern appliances and electric hob. The layout is open-plan with a sitting area and direct exit out to the outstanding pergola, where you can enjoy al-fresco dinners with your family and friends. Plenty of light gets into these rooms, thanks to the French windows, which connect directly to the garden and pool area. To the other side of the entrance hall, there is a guest bathroom and 4 additional rooms: one is the technical room, another one is used as a wardrobe and the last 2 are 2 useful storages. First Floor: A grand, modern staircase leads you up to the first floor, where the sleeping area is arranged with a beautiful master bedroom with breathtaking views over the rolling hills of region Marche. It enjoys a sizable private bathroom with both shower and bathtub. The floor features 3 additional double bedrooms and a bathroom with shower. A 3rd bathroom for this floor may be created. All bedrooms enjoy lovely views over the countryside. The first floor is accessible both via internal staircase and also via an external staircase, as it used to be in old farmhouses. This property was completely rebuilt to a very high standard and according to the latest anti-seismic criteria. The roof is insulated, the floor is ventilated – thus avoiding damp problems – double-glazed widows and mosquito nets on all windows. The underfloor heating makes living in this house extremely comfortable. The house is basically self-sustainable thanks to the 5,5 kW photovoltaic system which powers the heating and kitchen hob, while the solar panels give hot water. The current owners – who took care of the restoration – made the choice to retaining the old, traditional shape of marchigiano farmhouses, while opting for a modern and minimalistic style for the interiors, to create a nice contrast between tradition and modernity. The Annex Close to the house there’s an outbuilding (about 30 sq.m.), partly arranged as a carport, partly as a summer kitchen by the pool and partly as a room with private bathroom, that you may arrange as a playroom/hobby room, a studio or you may add a bed. The summer kitchen is the perfect spot to prepare a quick meal or grill some meat and serve it by the pool, with no need to enter into the main home. The Garden The property is surrounded by a 3.300 sq.m. garden, with outstanding panoramic views over the multicoloured rolling hills of region Marche. It’s been recently planted with 45 olive trees, which will soon produce an excellent organic olive oil, thanks to the position of the property, which is reached by the sea breeze. The swimming pool measures 9 x 4m and it’s positioned south-east, so basically it’s always in the sun. The tiled terrace all around, lets you place sunbeds to get a perfect tan. The Location The position of this beautiful farmhouse in Marche is extremely convenient: as a matter of facts in 5 minutes by car you can reach many medieval villages, including Morro D’Alba, Ostra and Belvedere Ostrense, where you can go for your daily shopping and for a meal out in a typical osteria. Senigallia and its sandy beaches are just 15 min away. In Senigallia there’s always something going on: in the summer many outdoor events take place, including concerts and festivals. In winter you can go for an art exhibition or attend a show at Teatro Fenice. Senigallia is also well known for hosting two Michelin-starred restaurants. The location of the house is unsurpassed: surrounded by pristine nature, very quiet and private, it’s not isolated and will let you access all services in just minutes.

Bastide Iesi (Italy)

When you think of a farmhouse in the nature, surrounded by rolling hills, a variety of tree species, in an unspoilt location, then you are probably thinking of something like this. This farmhouse is positioned in one of the most scenic locations in region Marche, surrounded by rolling hills and olive groves. Completely rebuilt from scratch in 2002 to make it a holiday residence, this traditional farmhouse offers guests the privilege of living a unique experience. The House The main building features for the façade a match of original bricks and plaster. The total area of the building is 350 sq.m. over 3 floors for a total of 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. Ground Floor: The ground floor is characterised by a number of French-windows, which allow people to move easily from each room of the house out to the garden. The living area features two big and bright rooms, connected via 3 squared arches, that mirror 3 small windows – all in a perfect geometry. Three steps lead up to a corridor, which connects to the 3 spacious double bedrooms, all with en-suite bathroom. On the same floor there are also a guest bathroom, as well as a useful laundry room. This floor is mainly used as an accommodation area, with the guests’ bedrooms, while the living areas are used as breakfast room and sitting area. First Floor: Thanks to the external staircase – in addition to the internal staircase – the first floor is completely independent, thus used as the private area for the owners. Here a Boffi, fully-equipped kitchen is set and the dining/relaxing area overlooks the marchigiano rolling hills. On the two opposite sides of the living area, you can find 4 private bedrooms, two of which with a mezzanine, which can lodge additional beds. For these 4 bedrooms, there are 2 bathrooms. Second Floor: Occupied by the mezzanines quoted above. Being rebuilt from scratch, this house gives the privilege of living inside an old, traditional shell with all modern comforts: as a matter of facts, the house was rebuilt over 30 poles, thus making it super solid, especially against earthquakes. The foundations are ventilated, to avoid damp problems; the roof is insulated, thus keeping a constant temperature in the house. Last but not least, a 3kW photovoltaic system provides clean energy to the house. The Garden The farmhouse is surrounded by a mature garden of 4.000 sq.m. with 90 olive trees, which produce – according to the season – around 200 kg of organic olive oil. Thanks to its position, from all sides you can enjoy lovely views over the rolling hills. Same for the windows on the upper floor. Building a pool is possible. The Location The location of this farmhouse is what mainly made the current owners fall in love with it. In fact, although not on the top of a hill, the valley opens completely in front of the house, revealing the gentle multicolour hills typical of region Marche: as a matter of facts, according to the season and the type of cultivation, the colours here change continuously. The other great advantage is that, despite being immersed in the gentle and immaculate Marche countryside, in just 10 minutes you can reach Jesi, which is one of the largest towns in the province of Ancona, where you can find all kinds of services, as well as delicious restaurants. Jesi is popular for being the birthplace of Frederick II of Swabia, with a strong cultural connotation (there are many museums and events in town) and for its strategic position halfway between the sea and the mountains. EPC Rating: D Energy Performance Index (IPE): 148,07 kwh/sq.m.*year Why Buy It This farmhouse gives you freedom: freedom to go and live there immediately with your family and then decide if you want to start a B&B business. Or the opposite, of course! In fact, this farmhouse – thanks to its internal layout – allows you to use it both as a family home and as a B&B with a private area for the owners: the external staircase gives reserved access to the owners on the upper floor, while guests can always enjoy their privacy on the ground floor. The construction of a swimming pool will make the farmhouse even more attractive, especially for tourists coming from outside Italy.

Bastide San Venanzo (Italy)

A traditional countryside resort nestled in the Umbrian hills with a gorgeous pool area and two grand porticos, surrounded by a thriving Oak Tree Park. If you want nothing more than some quiet relaxation holding a glass of local Umbrian wine, languishing in the Italian sun away from prying eyes, and a rich al-fresco dinner under the two porticos, this is the place for you. This property is a true gem, perfect for unwinding during the Summer and nestling in its gorgeous landscape during the colder months. Situated in an exceptionally panoramic location, this Villa is but a stone’s throw away from Orvieto, in the very heart of the Umbrian countryside. This means: luxurious villa with adjoining pool, combined with cozy rustic countryside vibes. The Villa This gorgeous villa of 430 sq.m has two traditional porticos of 75 sq.m. each and a luxurious 16x7m pool. It used to be one of the many Italian farmhouses populating the Peninsula, completely built in natural stone and surrounded by three hectares of fenced land. After having been meticulously restored, it has become the perfect combination of rural countryside style and luxurious modern comfort, with a pool and tanning area, its private three-hectare Park and its own spring for fresh clear water. Ground Floor: The shade of the front portico welcomes you in the main entrance of the Villa: natural Umbrian stone, classic Italian wooden beams – this entrance is the central part of the ground floor. Looking at your left from there, you can behold the kitchen and dining area with its classic stone fireplace, which lead you into two spacious and bright lounge rooms connected by a stone arch, with luminous doors opening the space towards the garden. The other wing of the ground floor, on the right side of the main entrance, consists of another living room with a grand traditional stone fireplace and a large door leading out to the garden. From there you can access an airy master bedroom with its en-suite bathroom. This whole space may be turned into a separate apartment, if necessary, with possibility to create another cooking area, thus rendering it fully autonomous. Both at the front and at the back of the ground floor you can enjoy the shade of the two 75 sq.m. porticos, providing an enjoyable space for dining outside in the hot summer evenings, having a refreshing drink after working in the garden, or drying and resting after a good swim in the adjoining pool. First Floor: The staircase leads you up to a landing with a bright window, from which you can access the central lounge room, once again equipped with a traditional stone fireplace sitting in front of the window. The first floor of the house then divides into two master bedrooms and two double bedrooms, mirroring one another on each side of the lounge room, all towered by traditional wooden beams in the same style of the downstairs ceiling. Two bathrooms complete this floor, although more could be added if needed. This way each bedroom could have its own private bathroom and the property might be turned into an “agriturismo” or partly rented out. The Land This amazing villa in Umbria sits in a three-hectare private park with oak and pine trees, providing shade for your summer strolls and allowing for some privacy for those having a swim in the pool or sunbathing peacefully. The 16x7m pool allows you to remain fresh during the Italian summer, enjoying a cold drink and relaxing under the sun, while still remaining close to the villa and away from prying eyes. The close proximity of the pool to the porticos allows you to jump right out of the water and reach the villa with only a few steps, ready to dine outside in the shade. On the border of the property, you can find a spring, restored in 1975, which can provide fresh water for irrigation or to fill the swimming pool. The Location This gorgeous villa was built in an exquisite area, it being extremely close to Orvieto, yet fully immersed in the tranquility of its natural landscape. The closest town with services is San Venanzo, in whose municipality this property is located. It is an extremely important historical location with traces of human settlements dating back to prehistoric times. This area has gone through much in history: it is through San Venanzo that Via Orvietana stretched, an ancient Etruscan road connecting Perugia to Orvieto. Perugia is less than 1 hour away, but perhaps what’s also interesting is that this villa is but 2 km away from the famous “Monte Peglia-Selva di Meana” Natural Park, a UNESCO protected area for its biodiversity, also famous for the outstanding presence of unique in the world volcanic minerals and rocks. From this property you can reach the Lake Corbara in half an hour, which also allows you to roam through the “Sette Frati” Park, perfect for family walks and outside grilling. In a bit more than one hour you can then pay a visit to the Marmore waterfalls, an outstanding destination for a one-day trip, also suitable for children. That’s the beauty of Umbria, well known by many for its comfortable central position, from which in just about one day you can reach some of the most enchanting Italian cities of artistic and historical importance, such as Rome and Florence. From the comfort of this luxurious villa, you can pick on a daily basis what spectacular part of the Peninsula you’d like to explore and get back home in time for an Aperitivo… a glass of wine in front of the Colosseum at lunchtime, and a relaxing swim in your private pool in the evening? Or perhaps, a stroll in the luscious Oak tree Park inhaling fresh morning air, and a pasta dish in the alleys of Florence in the afternoon. If you then miss having sea breeze caressing your face and enjoying fresh fish delicacies… the seaside is only two hours away – both of them, Adriatic or Tirrenic coast alike! EPC Rating: E Energy Performance Index (IPE): 145,15 kwh/sq.m.*year Why Buy It This villa in Umbria has a well-defined historical and architectural character, with its combination of Italian traditional style and modern features. Its peculiarity though is that it also allows you to make it really yours, fitting it to your wants and needs thanks to its extremely comfortable location, its spacious rooms, and its luxurious surroundings. It is the perfect cozy retreat for those who cherish their privacy and independence – but this Villa also allows you and your guests to really choose how to truly experience the Italian countryside. Perhaps enjoying the tranquility of the pool under the Italian sun, or maybe roaming around the gorgeous Umbrian hills… walking through the UNESCO protected natural park or simply enjoying a home-cooked meal in the fresh shade of the porticos.
