Villa Gelsi is a 200 year old farmhouse which we have completely restored to provide comfortable accommodation for up to 11 guests. Set in 1.5 acres, it takes its name from the majestic mulberry trees in the grounds around the house, which is approached along a private track up a hillside, through an archway of trees, ending in a large car park area.
The 12m x 6m pool has steps and a diving board at one end, and walk-in steps at the other. A solar shower provides ample hot water during the summer months.
For the chillier times of the year, central heating is installed throughout the house, with radiators in every room.
The property is about 55 minutes drive from Ancona airport, and is about a quarter of a mile from the nearest minor tarmac road. Complete privacy and tranquillity are just two of the delights of Villa Gelsi.
The neighbouring countryside is dotted with delightful medieval hill-top villages. The two local towns – San Lorenzo in Campo and Pergola – are just a short drive away, and are as yet untouched by tourism. Both have bustling colourful weekly local markets plus local stores, and supermarkets.
Villa Gelsi and its guests are looked after by Hans, an English/Italian speaking Dutchman. He lives in the area, and manages all the letting logistics, including cleaning, washing, and maintenance, and is on hand to organise specific activities, as well as helping out as and when required.
Bed linen, towels, and pool towels (depending on the time of year) are provided on a per person basis as required.
