Description


Villa La Rocca - Montefortino - Marche

4 Bedrooms - Swimming Pool - Hot tub in the garden

Location and Surrounding Area. Located in an enchanting setting between Monte Sibilla, the gorge of Infernaccio and the hilltop town of Montefortino, it is on a spur of rock from which it dominates the valley. Today, Villa La Rocca is a luxury venue located among the Sibillini mountains, designed for those seeking peace and relaxation. Villa La Rocca represents the perfect location for day trips to the most beautiful towns in the Marche and provides a unique opportunity to admire the region’s iconic landscapes while soaking up its incredibly rich historical and cultural heritage.

Sandwiched between the Apennines and the Adriatic coast, this hilly region boasts a string of exquisite provincial towns. This lush part of central Italy is made for slow travel, for snaking along winding back roads to enchanting hill towns such as Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio and Urbino, and for reveling in fine food and wine. The cultural menu is equally rich, and Renaissance masterpieces by artists such as Giotto and local-born heroes Raphael and Perugino grace many of the regions’ churches and museums. Music lovers are also well served, with summer opera in Macerata, Pesaro and Spoleto, and jazz in Perugia.

With a continuous history dating from the Sabine tribe in the 9th century BC, Ascoli Piceno is one of Le Marche’s most attractive towns. Its historic center, mercifully flat after so many steeply stacked hillside towns, is a charming pocket of medieval streets punctuated by churches and piazzas. There is a sense of grandeur here too, especially on its central squares: Piazza Arringo and Piazza del Popolo. Foodies are in for a treat: Ascoli is the birthplace of Italy’s much-loved olive all'ascolana and wherever you go in town you are never far from a tempting takeaway or trendy bar.

Ancona is often written off as just another port. In fact, there is more to this historic city than ferries and transport connections, and to bypass it would be to miss much. Ancona was founded by Greek settlers from Syracuse around 387 BC and its old town, crowned by a cathedral, harbors many reminders of its long history: archaeological artefacts, Roman arches, Romanesque churches, and Renaissance palazzi that glow softly in the evening light. Linger long enough in the hilltop parks, lively boulevards and cafe-rimmed piazzas and you will start to see another, more likeable side to Le Marche's seafront capital.

With a pristine medieval center and an international student population, Perugia is Umbria’s largest and most cosmopolitan city. Its historic center, seemingly little changed in more than 400 years, rises in a helter-skelter of cobbled alleys, arched stairways and piazzas framed by solemn churches and magnificent Gothic palazzi. Reminders of its lively and often bloody past are everywhere, from ancient arches and medieval basilicas to Renaissance frescoes by the likes of Perugino and Raphael.

Villa La Rocca is 119 km from Umbria-Perugia “San Francesco d'Assisi” International Airport, 133 km from Marche Ancona-Falconara Airport, and 136 km from Abruzzo-Pescara Airport.

Villa La Rocca is about 5 km from Montefortino, where all the necessary services can be easily found.

The Property. Built during the 11th century and set between Mount Sibilla, the Infernaccio gorge and the hilltop town of Montefortino, Villa La Rocca is an ancient watchtower that was used to control the passage of men and goods in the upper part of the Tenna valley.
