We had a fantastic time in this really lovely apartment. It is very spacious, with two very good size bedrooms and comfortable beds and lots of space for your stay. The view from the big balcony is just stunning, and seems to change each day and throughout the day. The pool area is really nicely designed and the pool itself is lovely and refreshing.
The location of the apartment is fantastic, with a nice 20 - 25 mins walk into the lovely town of Sarnano, or just more than five minutes if you drive. The apartment is up a track off the main road so it is very secluded and there are chickens, goats and geese in the grounds around the two houses.
Sarnano itself is a really special place to stay: quiet but without being too quiet and with plenty of good choices of places to eat and drink (all of them excellent in our opinion). Plus there's a good range of shops to buy groceries and other things you may need. 3x small but not tiny supermarkets, plus at least three butchers, plus lots of places selling local salumi and cheeses and other good things. The place just has a really nice relaxed atmosphere and we found everyone to be very friendly. I would have happily stayed here much, much longer.
All arrangements for booking, getting information about how to find the place and so on went very smoothly and Lucia was very quick and responsive always. She made sure to meet us when we first arrived, as we would not have been able to find the track up to the apartment via the Sat Nav. Lucia's mum Rosa and Father (Luigi) live in the downstairs of the building with the apartment and I must say the whole family were charming and genuinely keen to see that we enjoyed our stay. Really lovely people and I hope to see them again some day when we come back.
The only reason why I don't give the apartment the full five stars are just some minor things that could be improved, such as having cushions for the sun loungers around the pool and maybe for some of the furniture on the balcony, the option of wine glasses in the kitchen and perhaps some bigger towels in the bathroom. But these really are minor and I fully intend to return to this apartment when we get round to the Marche region again. Thank you Lucia, Rosa and Luigi, we had a lovely time!
