KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
La Siesta is a traditional Marche farmhouse that dates to the 16th century. The house is full of character and has been carefully restored to leave original features intact whilst creating comfortable and well-equipped holiday accommodation.
The farmhouse is located off a quiet country lane in the heart of Le Marche's Macerata province, this is a wonderful base for exploring the surrounding countryside, the many small towns and villages of the area, the Frasassi caves and, of course, the beautiful coastline and beaches of the Adriatic. From your doorstep, without setting foot in your car, are some great walks and there is also a little bar within walking distance at about 1.5km.
The closest large town, five minutes by car, is Treia with its 13th century walls and a maze of charming alleyways filled with Lombard towers and renaissance and neoclassical buildings. The town is filled with interesting buildings, including the Romanesque Church of San Michele with its Gothic elements, which stands in front of the baroque Church of Santa Chiara. Then, within a 15 to 20 minute drive, there's the ancient town of Cingoli which, along with a variety of shops and traditional restaurants, has a central Piazza, Vittorio Emanuele II, that is overlooked by the City hall and the beautiful Cathedral.
For Opera fans, Macerata with its famous opera house is just 15 to 20 minutes drive. The opera house is the town's most notable landmark Built in 1819, the huge colonnaded hemicycle and outdoor theatre, called Arena Sferisterio, resembles an ancient Roman arena in style, whilst its excellent acoustics make it one of the grandest opera settings south of Verona. Founded in 1921 and running from mid July to mid August Arena, Sferisterio hosts some of the most popular summer music events in Italy.
The Adriatic coast and some great beaches also lie within easy reach of La Siesta. The sea is visible through the distant hills seen from La Siesta's garden and the top bedrooms on clear days and the seaside resorts of Conero, Porto Recanati and Civitanova Marche are only 30 minutes away by car. The farmhouse is also just 40 minutes away from the popular Italian ski-resort of Sarnanao, meaning La Siesta could also be the perfect choice for a winter holiday.
A holiday at La Siesta is to enjoy a great house surrounded by stunning scenery and having the benefits of your own private pool, the beach within easy reach and some great towns and villages to explore nearby. There is a large well-tended vegetable plot in the garden where guests can help themselves to seasonal vegetables and fruits. The estate also produces an excellent extra virgin olive oil which is avalable to purchase.
