Casa Bellisima  
Two Guest Cottages

Casa Bellissima, a large handsome  Italian farmhouse,  set in the magical, untouched Le Marche region which neighbours Umbria and
Tuscany. The property, the landscape and the peaceful, inspiring spirit of this area have a calming restorative affect on all guests who choose this
impressive studio for yoga & pilates . On the hill-top overlooking the property is a guest cottage rented exclusively with the main house and studio. The
magnificent views is surely one of the most breathtaking in the region which prides itself on its ravishing views
The panoramic views reach as far as the coast 40 kms away - the sibillini mountains in the distance , hill towns, olive groves fields of sunflowers. For a  
truely magical experience just  sit on the terrace at sunset and sunrise. Absolute peace and tranquility add to the overwhelming charms of this perfectly
situated holiday home.
10 kms drive takes you to San Severino labelled Citta del Arte it is the centre for art and music in this province. A jazz festival is an annual delight with
top names playing in the medieval Piazza of this exquisite walled town.

The mellow , calming ambiance of the house allows people to relax and re-orientate themselves. It is, after all, the best state of mind for
everyone to enjoy both the property and the wide range of things to see and do in this very special part of the world. As well as being a great place for a memorable
holiday for families and friends, Casa Bellissima also provides the ideal environment for learning and discovery. From cookery or wine courses to art and pilates & yoga.
Casa Bellissima is a great spot for photo shoots and corporate functions, too.
It provides the perfect solution for a larger family group reunion, a party for a special birthday and an ideal location for a wedding reception.
Set between the sea and soaring mountains the house  is the perfect base from which to explore the riches of Le Marche. Untouched by mass tourism, Le Marche remains an
undiscovered jewel. The medieval hill-top city of Cingoli, known as the 'Balcony of the Marches' is just 20 minutes’ drive away and has panoramic views over the hills to the
sea. Closer to home (15 minutes’ drive), you’ll find San Severino, known as the 'City of Art'. Like Cingoli, it has museums, galleries, churches and monasteries while there are
lots of dining choices, bars and shops. Further afield, you’ll discover Urbino, the Renaissance town and birthplace of Raphael (1hr 40min). Then there’s Macerata (40min),
celebrated for its annual outdoor opera festival. Throughout summer, open air festivals, palios and pageants take place across all of Le Marche. The region is also home to
many natural wonders; the Frassasi Caves, the longest cave network in Italy (45min) and the Sibillini National Park (50min).

Eating and drinking: Le Marche is a pioneering region in organic farming. And you can see, feel and taste the difference in the local shops and restaurants. Around the coast, you’ll find excellent
seafood
including a famous dish seafood and fish soup Brodetto, with each area offering its own deliciousvariant on the ingredients. Inland there are other delights. This istruffle country,
and they have been part of the culture for the past 300years. Every type is found in the area, so local restaurants serve seasonal truffle dishes all year long.

Le Marche is home to the famous white wine Verdicchio. There are currently 11 DOC areas in Le Marche (this denotes a regulated wine of a high standard, so watch out for the label). We
like the Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, an elegant dry white, and Rosso Conero Riserva Grosso Adontano 2002, a ruby red with hints of black cherry and plum that goes well with red meat
and hard cheeses.

Outdoor activities: After all that indulgence, you’ll want some exercise. Hike on the Grande Anello dei Sibillini, or — more gently — through the Gothic Gola dell’Infernaccio, or Hell’s
Throat, a twisting limestone gorge. The water park at Cingoli is great for a family day out. There is also skiing in the Sibillini's in the winter months. There are some great walks in the
local area and winding your way through the country lanes near Casa Bellisima is a joy. We also have four moutain bikes with helmets at the property for your use. The rolling hills and
the lake at Cingoli also make for excellent traithlon training.
