We had booked Sue's place expecting to find something nice but reality went way beyond our expectations. The house is simply gorgeous, brilliantly located very close to the beautiful town of Recanati, it offers a 360 view over the surrounding areas, from the sea to the Appennine mountains. Sue and Peter are exceptional hosts, always ready to provide you with anything that might improve your stay. And this is always done in a very discreet and friendly manner. Among the best features of the house are the pool (obviously), which is a proper little pool and not a large bathtub, and the kitchen that is large enough and equipped so to easily provide for a numerous congregation. The stone barbecue and pizza oven just outside the house are other very appreciated details. A final note needs to go to the hammock in the garden where we were able to spend, in turns, some very relaxing moments in the shade of the overarching trees.

This home exceeded our expectations by far. Upon arrival at this stunning villa we were kindly greeted and made to feel welcome. The property was even more beautiful than expected and easily surpassed our expectations. The view and the comfort of the home, the pool and the easy communication with Sue and Peter made for some amazing memories. They were outstanding hosts - always responsive, always supportive (even when I was desperately in need of a dentist on a Saturday). If anything, Sue and Peter have undersold the value and quality of her villa. We could not have had a nicer experience from start to finish. Thank you Sue and Peter. What a treat!

Villa Lily made our family holidays unforgettable. We couldn't find anything that was missing: the house is fully equipped with whatever you would need during your staying. As Italians, we mostly appreciated the importance given to conviviality, (which is not very easy to find). The location is strategic to visit the entire Marche region, both amazing seaside and mountain. With such a stunning view of the landscape, in the villa we have been spending a wonderful time in the midst of beauty, attention to detail and functionality. Absolutely perfect!

We were welcomed by the friendly Roberto who spoke perfect English and showed us around the beautiful villa. Everything positive we had read about turned out to be true and we quickly fell into a routine of good food, fine local wines and relaxing by the pool. There was absolutely nothing we could have asked for that wasn't there already. The six of us have returned fully recharged and fighting fit! Thank you, Sue!

A fantastic house! The scenery, surroundings and the house is absolutely gorgeous. The pool was very much appriciated by the kids! It's only 30 min from Porto Recanati by the Adriatic sea which was a very nice, small and cosy village. We hope to be back one day!

Our two family group had wonderful two weeks at the house which is simply amazing. It has character and is equipped well (especially kitchen). Garden is spacious and nicely landscaped and suits well for kids to play around. Also view from the house across hilly surroundings is fabulous.

This house is the perfect break from a busy lifestyle - beautiful views, great swimming pool, beautifully maintained and fully equipped. Recanati is only a few minutes drive away and has plenty of places to eat and drink, and you'll find plenty of supermarkets within a short drive. We had a great stay, and Sue really made an effort to make sure everything went smoothly. Can highly recommend this wonderful place.

We have spent most of our lives living and working in other countries - Nigeria, Zambia, Pakistan and India to name a few. In 2001 we moved to Rome and the following year we bought a run down old farmhouse in the beautiful Marche countryside. Bit by bit over the years since then, with the help of an inspirational local builder, we have lovingly restored the house, made a garden and a veg patch, and most recently added a beautiful swimming pool with fabulous views over the Adriatic.

We have equipped the house to meet the standards required by families on holiday, and will continue to improve it over the years, aided by your suggestions. You'll find loads of books on our shelves, internet and wifi coverage and a TV. But above all the house has been designed around the kitchen, and we hope you will enjoy cooking and eating there as much as we do.

We are very relaxed and easy-going hosts, and look forward to getting to know you. Therefore we would like to welcome you to our beautiful and peaceful house.
