The country house “La casa dei fiori” is an enchanting home surrounded by green landscapes and vineyards, nearby the historic town of Matelica, in the heart of the Marche region. Its position is a perfect mix of hills, mountains and forests together with towns full of art and culture.
A few miles away are the city of Fabriano, the Frasassi Caves, the Gola della Rossa and the Monte Cucco natural parks, the San Vicino mountain and its hiking trails, the hermitage “Eremo dell’Acquarella”.
Our Country House is located up on a hill, and from the furnished garden and the private swimming pool you’ll enjoy an evocative view over the surrounding natural beauties: from the high peaks of the Sibillini mountains to the fascinating underlying valleys, full of traditionally grown vineyards.
La casa dei fiori is a holiday spot that combines the country relais concept and the green tourism, being part of one of the most renowned wine and food itineraries of Italy: “la Strada del Verdicchio” (the Road of Verdicchio).
The late ‘800 house is a typical example of rural farm, featuring a main central building with a big kitchen in the middle (now is the entrance hall with fireplace), stables and depot on the ground floor (now living room and kitchen) and the rooms on the first floor.
Refurbishment has been done in respect of the past, leaving the original structure unaltered, earthenware tiles and wooden beams have been preserved and all the locations have been painted with natural colours.
There are four bedrooms, each of them traditionally furnished as an original rural mansion; we favoured the choice of natural fabrics for sheets and towels.
The name “la Casa dei Fiori” means “House of the Flowers”, and takes its origins from an ancient local tradition: this house used to be fully decorated with flowers and torches in order to host the final act of the triennial procession in honour of the wooden ‘400 crucified Christ, nowadays kept into the close San Michele Arcangelo sanctuary.
