The cottage is divided into two spacious apartments for a total of 5 bedrooms, all with private bathrooms. Both apartments have access from the ground floor.
Pettirosso is a ground-floor apartment with a large living room with a sofa bed, two double bedrooms, one with a single bed, both have private bathrooms with shower. Guests have access to the front garden with a gazebo with table and chairs, for relaxing and dining outdoors.
Pettirosso is one of two apartments Ca Quattrocchi.
To reach the house you need to drive for about 3.5 km on a gravel road running through forests of oak and hornbeam trees with charming landscapes popping from behind the flora... The town of Apecchio, where you will also find all the main services, is about 5 km away. This area is famous for craft brewers both in Italy and abroad; you can visit them for beer tours and tastings, while some restaurants offer menus with dishes based on local beers.
There are trails for hiking, trekking, canyoning and river bathing. About half an hour away is Sant'Angelo in Vado with the unique mosaics of the Domus of the Myth, and a little further there is Mercatello sul Metauro (an Orange flag for one of the best mediaeval boroughs in Italy). In less than an hour drive away there is the beautiful Urbino, an UNESCO World Heritage city.
Outside the large terrain allows you to better enjoy the beautiful natural landscape that surrounds the house, with barbecue, table tennis, table football, gazebo, tables and chairs for outdoor dining. Guests can enjoy a large swimming pool with Jacuzzi area, perfectly harmonised with the surrounding landscape.
We've just returned from our vacation. we may be surprised to discover a land rich in beauty but little known through several hiking, biking or with horses in the inland of le Marche, even richer and more pleasant thanks to the warm colours of autumn. We apreciated the house cleaned and fully equiped. An iPad is available with internet line and with several newspapers in English, books and games for the children.
We will recommend it to our friends.
