Welcome to our lovely holiday cottage close to the pretty village of Pievebovigliana. Originally the barn and bread oven for our farm we have recently renovated and transformed it into a very comfortable holiday cottage for up to 4 guests. Lots of the original features have been retained whilst providing all the modern comforts you would expect for a truly relaxing holiday.

Additional Location Information
The cottage is in a rural location so a car is absolutely essential for your stay here. The local village is a 5 minute drive away where you can find a pizzeria, cafe / bar, grocery shops, bank, tourist information and farmacy. A small supermarket can be found approximately 8 minutes drive away from the property which has a good delicatesan counter and a comprehensive selection of local wines.

There is a small but good selection of restaurants within a 10 minute drive from the property all serving their own version of the local specialities. The cooking in this area tends to be robust dishes made from fresh local products. There is a strong focus on game and pork and you will also find many delicious dishes of home-made pasta.

A good number of beautiful and historic towns of both Le Marche and Umbria can be reached easily by car within 1hour. These include Macerata, San Severino Marche, Tolentino, Foligno and Spello. If you drive just a bit further you can easily reach Assisi and Spoleto, both very important historical towns in Umbria. In early September the Quintana at Foligno is a stunning spectacle of jousting and parades.
The Frassasi caves at Genga are a remarkable site with an awesome display of limestone stalegmites and stalegtites. During the hottest months they offer a welcome respite to the outside temperatures as they hold a constant temperature of 14 degrees C.
The Sibillini National Park is right on the door step which offers a host of natural wonders. It is home to many varieties of wild flowers and animals, including the golden eagle and wolves.
