This attractive 6 bedroom villa, a short stroll to the centre of a hill town called Penna San Giovanni, has Wi-Fi, private pool and panoramic views. Here you can relax and enjoy The Real Italy not far from a beautiful mountain lake and beach resort.

The space

Casa Maria is a recently renovated farmhouse but unlike many other similar properties in the area it is not isolated as it is within walking distance of the historic walled village of Penna San Giovanni with its shops, bars and restaurant where Paulo cooks the best pizza I have ever eaten. In the tabacci the owner Umberto, who speaks excellent English, will be happy to advise you on local markets and events. See more at (URL HIDDEN)

The kitchen is well equipped with a Smeg cooker, extractor fan, granite worktop, tall fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, electric kettle and toaster.
East facing patio doors lead into the garden where there is a small table and chairs - perfect for that early morning coffee.

On the ground floor is a study with desk, soft furnishings and open fire. A great place to relax with a book, write or surf the internet.
Patio doors lead onto the upper terrace where there is a bench looking out over the valley to the south.

The lounge area is comfortably furnished with three settees and has a large rustic fireplace and wood-burning stove.
Again patio doors lead onto the lower terrace where there is a large table and 12 chairs for al fresco dining.

In the dining area are a dresser and dining table which seats 12. A Sony stereo CD/MP3 player is provided for your use.

There is Wi-Fi + a Top floor games room/den with table tennis and TV/DVD.

Cleaning/Towels/Linen/Maid service:

The Adriatic Coast, with its long sandy beaches and fabulous seafood and the mountains, with a magnificent lake safe for swimming are both just a short drive away. Our information pack will give you details of the places of interest and restaurants with a price guide to help you enjoy for yourself the pleasures of this beautiful unspoilt area. Our website at (URL HIDDEN) has more info/photos and recent guest views on the house and area.

Stephen provided the most comprehensive and brilliant information on the area that I have ever received from a property owner. We had details of a hidden place to swim in a nearby lake, the best beach to go to, and amazing restaurants that we never would have found ourselves. All information was sent in advance of our visit which made it much more exciting to look forward to. The details and photos on airbnb were totally accurate, and the house more than lived up to our expectations.

I live and work as a lawyer in Belfast and have a love of Italy, particularly the Marche region. We bought this farmhouse in 2003 and extensively modernised and renovated it to make it a home from home. We have enjoyed wonderful times here over the years and when not there rent it out during the summer. It is available all year round. Christmas and Easter in Italy are my favourites. They do everything so well.
