A Le Marche Country House

La Vecchia Scuola (the old schoolhouse) is a lovingly restored stone and brick country house, right next to the Monti Sibillini National Park, and only a short drive to San Ginesio (click for more), considered to be one of the most beautiful hill towns in Italy.

It's one of only a handful of really exceptional accommodation options that I feature in the region. You can see some of the others here.

Few old houses are ever restored this well and the wonderful house, together with the setting, makes this the perfect place to experience the “real” Italy, right in the rural heart of Le Marche and on the doorstep of both sea and mountains. A car is essential to explore properly though.

Of course, before you get to the sea or the mountains, you'll find that nearby are countless fascinating villages to enchant, small family-run restaurants to eat at and great scenery to admire.

You've even the option of your own personal chef - a lovely lady called Claudia. Claudia will cook you meals to remember from produce grown in her garden or on local farms. You'll wonder how you ever lived without Claudia in your life!

The history of the villa is uncertain, although it is known that it once served as the local schoolhouse in the latter part of the 19th century and hence the name. Nowadays it can accommodate up to four couples but even a single couple can easily be accommodated in great comfort and privacy.

If you are looking for a place where you can forget about the worries, stresses and pace of the modern world, somewhere to step back in time to a slower rhythm of life then this is it. You don't need to forsake today’s luxuries either as all modern conveniences are provided.

The owners love for Italy, and in particular Le Marche, can be felt in even the smallest detail - they wanted everything to be perfect and 100% authentic. They are delighted to have achieved that and you'll be delighted to share in the benefits of their years of hard work. 

You will also be pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the rates are – for a place this good they are unbelievable.

Forget that villa in Tuscany - this is better!
