Wonderful location for nature lovers, so quiet, only the sounds of nature. We saw hundreds of butterflies, deer, squirrels, fox,... all from the endless garden.
The house is well kept, perfect for a family of 4, perhaps a bit too small for 2 couples. Loved the nice artwork inside. Location is beautifully isolated but very near a small town where you can find absolutely everything. Nice shopping and restaurant tips from the owners. Good communication. This beautiful region is not so touristic which suited us perfectly as it is still very authentic.
We arrived at Il Roccolo utterly exhausted after a long period of heavy work, and we found that it was absolutely perfect for our needs. The house is superbly restored and wonderfully equipped. An excellent kitchen and bathroom, as well as comfortable furniture and beds, all make it a wonderful place to stay. Good Wi-Fi means that it's easy to keep in touch if you want to. At the other end of technology, the wood fire was a great help for the first couple of (slightly-chilly) days, and sitting looking at it in the evening was very relaxing. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived, with basic stocks of essentials in, all the beds made up and basically ready to go.
The views from the terrace were wonderful, and having breakfast looking out over them was a great way to start the day - and dinner with the same view was a pretty good way to finish it as well. In addition, the views of the mountains as you drive (or walk) down into Communanza were equally or more stunning: Il Roccolo is on a watershed, so there are different panoramic views both to the north and, within a few metres, to the south.
The facilities in Communanza are excellent, and well explained in the house book, so it's very easy to settle into the area once you arrive. We particularly enjoyed the Hotel in town, with its excellent restaurant. It was well worth the visit, and we went there twice.
The surrounding area is worth exploring, both scenically and for its facilities. We visited restaurants in Ortezzano and in Ascoli Piceno, both of which were well worth the journey, and we had a lovely drive up into the mountains. We didn't do a lot of 'culture' this time, but there's plenty in the area, especially at Ascoli Piceno, if you want it.
We certainly intend to use this again if you'll have us back a second time.
We left after a week thoroughly refreshed
What a fantastic house in stunning surroundings.
The house is immaculately kept with a lovely feel to it, clean and tidy, a very comfy bed, a superbly stocked kitchen and all the mod cons you could want, yet in an house that is entirely fitting with the regions architecture.
The surrounding countryside is absolutely breathtaking, with a fantastic view of rolling hills from the house's own large garden.
I look forward to coming back again!
Thank you so much for this beautiful week in your lovely house. We really enjoyed our stay.The nature around the lodge is breathtaking. It´s really a very quiet and romantic spot.
A most enjoyable week at your hunting lodge: exploring some unfamiliar hill towns, walking in the Sibillini and just enjoying the views. The mountains look spectacular at this time of year, and the view of them from the road down to Comunanza was a beautiful start to every day.
The lodge was charming. A most sensitive piece of restoration.
