Vacation Rentals, Italy, Marche
An oasis of peace and quiet, a panoramic pool and beautiful winding paths with breathtaking views
Location: Italy, the Marche region, near the medieval town of Cagli
Sleeps: 4 in each apartment
The name Vellaneta derives from the word “avellane”, hazelnuts, that have been growing here from time immemorial. The estat is located in the region of the Marche, in the central part of Italy, very near the medieval town of Cagli and the natural park of the Gola del Furlo. It is an oasis of peace and silence in the midst of an unspoiled nature, surrounded by cornfields, sunflowers, fruit trees, an olive-garden, woodlands and beautiful winding paths that may take you for long walks. It offers a magnificent view of Monte Petrano, Monte Nerone, Monte Catria and Monte Acuto. In the old days farmers who were working the land used to live at Vellaneta. The estate is situated at a distance of 30 km from both Urbino and Gubbio, and one hour away from the nearest golf clubs (near Umbertide or at the Conero coast).
There is a country house made of natural stone, where several families were living, and a hay barn, both dating back to the 16th century: they have been beautifully restored, maintaining the characteristic style and using original materials. The total area occupies a space of 65 hectares and is situated on an altitude of 550 meters.
On the ground-floor of the country house there is a cosy guest-apartment, Le Avellane, suitable for 4 persons, consisting of a living room/kitchen, a spacious, separate bedroom, a bathroom and a private terrace. The former hay barn has been made into are three apartments, each housing 4 persons, with a spacious veranda, an “open space” living room, a kitchen and a bathroom on the ground floor, and a bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe on the mezzanine floor. Each apartment has its own style and colour and is named after its position towards the sun: Aurora, Mezzogiorno and Tramonto (respectively sunrise, midday and sunset).
All the guests have at their disposal a spacious, elegantly decorated salon on the ground floor, with a library, a piano, a fireplace and several cosy angles to relax or read. The salon leads to a wide veranda, that offers a magnificent view of the mountains and the garden. Towards evening, while enjoying a glass of chilled wine, it is the perfect place to watch a beautiful sunset. There is also a panoramic swimming pool with a solar shower, a wood-oven for bread and pizza’s, a jeu-de-boule (pétanque), a barbecue, a washroom with washing-machine and ironing-board . An internet-connection is available both in the salon as well as in a separate room on the ground floor and a W-FI connection free of charge.
At one hours' driving there are three beautiful golf-courses: at Sirolo, near Ancona, at S. Giovanni in Marignano and near Perugia.
