Villa Rocca is an incredible and ancient 11th century watchtower, set within the most enchanting landscape between Mount Sibillia, the Infernaccio Gorge and village of Montefortino. The owners have spent years renovating the property, transforming it from its original use which was to control the passage of men and goods in the valley to the luxury retreat you see today.
The villa is spread out over three floors and split into two separate apartments. The whole property has been restored beautifully combining the original architecture with modern design. On the ground floor is the first apartment - Apartment Roccaccia. This boasts a living room with sofa bed as well as a kitchen leading to a charming courtyard overlooking the mountains. There is also a double bedroom and bathroom on this floor. The second apartment is arranged over the first and second floors and has two double bedrooms and one single bedroom. We particularly love the feature domed window of the master bedroom that literally allows guests to sleep under the star studded skies. These three bedrooms share two bathrooms, one with shower and the other with whirlpool bath tub. This apartment also boasts a dining room and fully equipped kitchen that leads out to a terrace with the most breathtaking views of the Gola dell' Infernaccio and the small hilltop villages that are dotted over the surrounding mountainsides. Outside, the property is set within beautiful gardens. Numerous pathways and trails are waiting to be explored, viewpoints to be discovered and artworks to be admired. We particularly love the views from the amphitheatre. This truly represents a meeting of the natural world and human creativity, all set in the most breathtaking landscape. Guests enjoy use of a private swimming pool (8m x 3m and 140cm deep) as well as a hot tub and there are plenty of other activities to enjoy on site too including table tennis, a pool table, traditional board games and toys. For music lovers, there is also a piano. Please note that in the Winter months, there is a charge of 150 euros per week for heating. Should guests wish for additional cleaning during their stay, this is available at a rate of 20 euros per hour. Linen changes are provided at a cost of 15 euros per person.
The nearest town is Monteforitno which is just 1 km away. Here you'll find the closest food stores. The nearest restaurant is 2 km away at Fonte fella Valle. Should you wish to travel to the coast, the nearest beaches are in Pedaso 60 km away.
