Beautiful and peaceful location
The farm sits on a south-facing hill overlooking the most peaceful valley in the area. You can watch the sunrise and the sunset, which sets over the mountains. There are birds, butterflies and other wildlife because it is so serene and surrounded by beautiful fields of sunflowers and wheat. Around the farm we have planted lots of flowers and herbs, and of course lavender is everywhere, adding a wonderful scent to the air.
Close to the sea, towns and mountains
We’re located only 20 minutes from the beach, 40 minutes from the heart of the mountains and charming neighboring towns are only 10-20 minutes away. There are no busy roads anywhere near us, yet we are only 3 km to tiny medieval Carassai where you will find a bank, post office, grocery store, bars, pharmacy, restaurant and everything else you might need, including great ice cream!
Comfortable cheerful rooms
The rooms and apartments have been recently restored. They are full of light and have fans and window screens. All bathrooms are private and have large showers. Breakfast is buffet style (available all morning) with fresh bread, homemade jams, local fruit, homemade muesli and yogurt. When Elizabetta has time, she makes breakfast cakes and muffins using homegrown fruit.
Cozy camp sites
Many of our campsites are somewhat secluded as they are separated by trees and bushes, are on different levels, or are in the olive grove. Every year we plant more tress, bushes and vines to create an even greater sense of privacy for our campers and also provide shade. We supply a shared fridge for campers to store their food in and also provide cold drinks for sale. If you order the day before, Hans brings you fresh brown bread 6 times per week, baked by our local baker.
Lots of public areas to use and enjoy
There is a shade garden, an herb garden, a veranda, several gazebos, flower gardens, a picnic area and a play area for children. There is plenty of outdoor seating in the shade and tables for you to use. You can wander about the farm: the olive grove, the vineyard and the lavender field. We have some games for children a badminton set, ping pong and a wading pool for the very little ones. We have local guide books and maps for you to borrow as well as a revolving library (take a book, leave a book) and some board games.
Local foods and products
In our little farm shop you will find our organic extra virgin olive oil, our lavender essential oil, handmade and locally sourced products. You can join us for events celebrating local foods, recipes, wine and traditions. Information is posted beforehand. You can learn to make traditional Italian and marchigiano dishes by joining a cooking class. There are also several restaurants nearby that serve traditional dishes.
Casual relaxed atmosphere
We want our guests and ourselves to have fun, so we keep things casual and relaxed. We’ve met so many wonderful people that we’ve become friends with and look forward to meeting many more!
