A true agriturismo located outside the village in the spello fields with fabulous views to to snowcapped mountaind (early July). Plenty of space in the rooms, we stayed in the converted barn, good and clean bathrooms. Quiet setting without traffic noise.

Very varied and wholesome breakfast buffet with eggs, bread, cereal, fruit and of course homebaked cakes. Evening meals are regional dishes, risotto, pasta etc with four courses. Plenty and both tasty and nourishing.

Outside facilities include a tranquil patio with climbing roses and plenty of seating in severtal groups and locations, so you never feel crowded by other guests.

Very friendly host. We even got to watch an Italian soccer match (European Championships) in the back room with all the locals, a memorable experience.

The setting for this agroturismo is possibly one of the most beautiful settings imaginable in the Sibillini Mountains, at the edge of the National Park. Unlike some of the other agrotourism places we saw in this area, this place is truly in a country setting (not in a hamlet or at the edge of a town, as many of the others seem to be). While it is not an actual farm (no many crops that we could see, other than some herbs and fruit trees, also no animals, no horses, just big, friendly dogs), the setting absolutely cannot be beat. Any direction you look, you see nothing but verdant green mountains and valleys, and striking peaks.

The road on which the agroturismo is set is now completely paved (but up the hill to the town of Montemonaco --about an 8-10 minute drive) and downhill to the highway.

Although we used this place as a base for excursions into the countryside, we could have happily spent full days by the idyllic pool, which was located on a spine below the house cluster where guests stay and eat (so guests are not disturbed by those enjoying the pool). The pool was perhaps in the most beautiful setting I have ever seen, & there is now a shaded area at one end of the large pool (not shown in the official photos posted--I think this is a recent addition). The temperature of the pool was also perfect.

We enjoyed the dinners her tremendously--the food was very good and portions VERY ample (not sure what earlier guests meant by saying that the food portions were not enough--we always had far more than enough at dinners and the breakfasts were also very sufficient, with fresh fruit, corn flakes, prosciutto, cheese, bread/cakes, nutello, juices, cappucinis etc). The wonderful pastas were the most memorable aspects of the 4 course dinner--one night we had a perfectly cooked tuna and olive pasta dish, and the other night we had a delectable lemon prosciutto pasta (perfect for the hot summer night) served outdoors on the lovely trellis-ed veranda.

The rooms were rustic and basic, but functional, and beds more comfortable than in many of the other places we have stayed. We were three in our room (on the bottom floor of the 2nd building, nearest the pool) and the location was very quiet. We heard none of the guest noises from the main building that others have written about (possibly they were disturbed by those sitting out late enjoying after-dinner drinks on the terrace---but that was at the other end of the property from us). The only thing we heard at night were the crickets, and in the AMs we were awoken to the dogs. Our room was well ventilated, too, as it had a corner location. Since it is an old building, the windows in our room were high, so while they were big, we did not have any views from the room. On the plus side, this meant we could leave them open and still have privacy.

People planning to stay here should be prepared to be in a rustic place--part of the charm of this truly remote location. The downside of this (and just about anywhere in these mountains) is the fact that insects are part of this location. We were there in mid-July, so there were flies. Those who brought bug repellent were fine, but we'd forgotten ours. Also, both evenings we found a small scorpion in our bathroom wall, as did another pair of guests in the main building. And our ceiling seemed to be the happy hangout for "Mothra." But all these things are easy enough to handle, as long as one is prepared for "rustic" and brings fly/bug spray. One the plus side, unlike at agroturismos and cities at lower altitudes, we saw absolutely NO mosquitos the entire time we stayed here.

The one recommendation we would make for the rooms is that a couple comfy chairs be added to the room, or that there be a couple chairs outside the door (since that area is private). There was only one chair in the room, a hard dining-table type chair, and so the only place in the room we could sit in the room was on the bed. This was an issue on the first night, as it was drizzly and we could not sit out in the trellised area (which was wet). I guess here it should be noted that the lack of a common indoor living room area at this argroturismo was something we especially noted that first afternoon and evening, when the weather was wet/drippy. The 2 public indoor rooms were completely dedicated to eating (many of the tables had already been set when we arrived, around 3:30 PM), so we did not feel we could hang out there. And there were no comfy couches or armchairs indoors in the public areas. (There are two small cushioned settees in the very small registration area, but they often had suitcases on them and were clearly dedicated to receiving new arrivals, not a comfy place for guests already there). So on rainy days, one's options are to stay in one's room, or to intrude in the dining room while it is being set up for lunch or dinner. Perhaps in the off season when the place is less full, this would not be an issue, but when we were there, the few outdoor tables that were under the eaves of the place were being used (and it was chilly outdoors that first afternoon, anyway). We hope the owners will think of adding some comfortable indoor area not dedicated to eating, as this would make things perfect!

All in all, we had a great time at this beautiful place and would return (but this time we'd bring our fly spray). :)

Great place with some of the best food we are in the area/ Italy.

The setting is beautiful, accommodation adequate and reasonable, and hospitality great if full of character.

Stayed two nights and got an unexpected 30% discount for second night because cleaner hadn't been. totally unexpected and unnecessary bonus to a good value stay.

For course meal cost 20€ each including house wine. Didn't try the pool but would be nice in summer and is in a lovely setting.

Would recommend this place. Send to accommodate campers and camper bands in the carpark if you book in for a meal too.

The location of the farm is really beautiful on the outside edge of the Park of Monti Sibillini, great to visit the park. Typical local cuisine, good quality. To improve the breakfast. The service, more than efficient, it is "genuine". Make rooms more inviting and functional. Being a suitable place for families, it is conceivable that the great silence of the surroundings is broken by some group of guests noisier. Overall, a bit high ratio quality / price.
