Trip Report One Castello, One Agriturismo, Molto Vino, Good Times in Le Marche

Jump to last reply

We have recently returned from a 9 day visit to the Le Marche area of Italy. This was our second time in this area, but the first time where we devoted our entire 9 days there. We were once there for 3 days in the Ascoli Piceno area. We loved it so much we decided now to split the region into South and North and divide our time between the two.

As always, I will start with our accomodations :

I knew I wanted to be in the area of Urbino for the Northern half of our trip. Thanks SO MUCH to bvlenci, who suggested the Castello di Monterado in the TEENY tiny 800 people town (yes, I asked!!) ot Monterado. This is exactly what it sounds like - a CASTLE. It belongs now to a very nice young couple with two small children, who live there along with his lovely grandmother. It has been in the family since 1920 when this young man's great-grandfather bought it and nowadays, it belongs to him.

When I looked at the website, the rooms/suites ALL looked so appealing that I honestly could not decide which I wanted. And I had endless e-mails back and forth with the owner to try and help me decide. Each suite is more lovely and appealing than the next. And they are all HUGE. Finally I made the decicion to go with the suite called Aphrodite. When we arrived at the Castello, he told me he had another suite also available the Degli Sposi, which is what we chose in the end.

The suite consisted of a very large entrance room/living room with very high beautifully painted ceilings, two ceiling to floor doors that opened up onto a lovely balcony, another door leading from the living room into another huge bedroom with very large bathroom and yet another small room.

Everything was beautifully decorated, painted and adorned with what looked like antique furnishings and knick-knacks. However, the bed was very comfortable and everything that was supposed to be modern and working well, WAS.

Breakfast, served in one of the myriad of other lovely rooms in the Castello, was ample and very tasty. We actually had the best tasting cherry tomatoes and strawberries that we have had in ages here. Other communal rooms included a library, music room, living room, dining room, etc.

The breakfast was included in the price, as was very good WiFi, parking within the walls of the Castello, the use of the pool and gardens.

I cannot remcommend highly enough.
