“Our favorate house in Italy”
Reviewed 15 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our family went on an extended trip around Italy this summer. We rented the Lolia house because it was only a few minutes away from our friends and appeared to meet our basic requirements of: enough beds for a family of 5, WiFi so that my husband could work, and air conditioning. I knew that this was not a tourist area and planned to spend most of our time with our friends, but I never expected to love it so much.

First, I have to say that both Lucio and Sarah were wonderful hosts. They left us a great bottle of wine from a local vineyard and this amazing bread from a local bakery that was so delicious; we bought it three more times. The house came with a book and instructions on how to use everything, where to find things we needed, directions to important local stops (grocery, restaurants, museums, etc) and discount tickets to a wonderful art show. Sarah and Lucio also were very responsive when we had any additional questions or needs.

They have restored this old farmhouse into something I wish I could live in every day. The house felt like our own home, only better. The details in each room made us feel immediately relaxed and it is easy to see that it was not a typical rental. They built this home for their family and it was decorated as such. Everything worked, it was clean, and the workmanship on the home showed how much they care about quality. The beds were comfortable, and the water in the showers stayed consistently hot (I later learned that this is not the case in all rentals). Also very nice were the basics available in the kitchen. In many rentals, we needed to bring our own things like salt, pepper, olive oil, etc.…but not at Lolia. We replaced things as we used them, but it was so nice to have basic condiments to start with.

The views are gorgeous from each room and Osimo was a great place to stay. Rather than being in a tourist town, we felt like we got a better look at how people in Italy actually live. While we were there, we wandered around the city of Ancona, we walked all around the Osimo city center, went to the Osimo Catacombs as well as the art show, and we visited the amazing Shrine of the Holy House in Loreto (The house of the Virgin Mary was moved here during the crusades), we went to the beach, and spent a lot of time with our friends. We really enjoyed a resaurant called Gustibus that they recommended (owned by friends) and we found a restaurant called La Taberna Braceria that was fun for dinner. I could not have asked for a better place to stay for our family. The only thing I did not like about Lolia was leaving. That was terrible. If I ever get the opportunity to go back to Italy, I will definitely make it a priority to return to Osimo and Lolia.

“Superbly comfortable, authentic Italian experience”
Reviewed 29 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay – it was all too short and we look forward to coming again. The house is beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean with every comfort and the views of Osimo are impressive. We particularly enjoyed Lucio's wonderful olive oil which is produced at the property - we are sure it will be winning prizes within a year or two!

“A perfect getaway for an authentic Italian experience!”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Lolìa is a beautiful country house, very homely with lovely outside space to enjoy the sunshine. The location of the house itself is perfect for exploring the area. Lots to see and do in the surrounding towns, all within short driving distances - the beach in Marcelli a particuar favourite along with a boat trip out to Due Sorelle from the port at Numana.

Osimo itself is a perfect little town - small but perfectly formed. The views from the town centre over towards the coast are simply breathtaking.

Can't reccomend the hosts, the house or the area enough - will be back for sure!
