Villa Fortenza has it all--great location & views, quiet & peaceful, parking, short walk (via 300+ stairs) into town which was a fun adventure & we're over 70. Salvatore is a wonderful host! Our room faced town & had an ensuite bathroom with a large soaking tub--heavenly! We will definitely return!

Salvatore (the owner) was great he was there most of the time to help us with all our needs, the villa is on top of the hill very peaceful and very panoramic..... Salvatore you are very passionate about your work and your guests, we thank you for that.

Breath-taking location above the old city of Ascoli Piceno with easy walking access. Enchanting villa, superb accommodation, gracious hosts, magnificent breakfasts, relaxing ambience .... We extended our stay three times.... and would still be there if they had the room available.. .... Loved it, loved it and loved it..... 非常美丽的景色, 热心好客得的主人。 如果他们的房间有空, 我们仍然还在那里。 Many thanks to Salvatore and Federica. 谢谢你们二位!!... More

Villa Fortezza is a totally unique experience. A contemporary house, high on a hill overlooking the city of Ascoli Piceno, with beautiful views of the city. The house is like a curio shop, full of diverse and interesting artifacts and art works. The owner, Salvatore is a wonderful host. He gave us much helpful information and also allows for free...

I wish I didn't have to tell about Villa Fortezza, because I wish I could keep this place all to ourselves. We traveled here to seek out a bridge painted by my father in 1962. He painted it from a postcard his mother had given him of her hometown, Ascoli Piceno. It has hung over our family's mantle for 50... More

Wonderful location above Ascoli Piceno with access to the centre of town by a long flight of steps (over 400). Modern, spacious villa filled with captivating and quixotic works of art and sculpure both inside and in the garden. Salvatore is a perfect host, welcoming arrivals with tea and Italian cakes. Bedrooms are sylish with comfortable beds; mine had a... More

What a joy! The wonderful adventure starts with the warm welcome you receive the moment you arrive at Villa Fortezza. As you take in the commanding view over Ascoli Piceno, Salvatore gently leads you thru the lookinglass and "things get curioser and curioser." Mannequins beckon, curios abound, whirleygigs hang suspended from the ceiling, a dentist's chair invites...and then on up... More

Simply perfect! Salvatore is a great host, and Villa Fortezza is a wonderful place to stay! - really cool house, with awesome furniture and a lot of art - waking distance to the city center - very close, you only have to walk down (or up) around 300 stairs, but it's worth it! :-) - nice breakfast on the terrace...

Oh how we loved our stay here. The house was so artistic and we kept discovering more and more. I am inspired! Perched above Ascoli it is so calming to relax in the cool of the garden and survey the view. Then to descend to the town by the steps (remember, what goes down has to go up) and eat,... More

Salvatore made us welcome from the moment we arrived. Villa Fortezza is in a magical setting with fantastic views over Ascoli Piceno. Everything at the Villa was great during our 3 day stay. Our room was tastefully decorated with a very modern bathroom and beautiful views. Each morning, breakfast in the garden was casual and relaxing and, once again, Salvatore... More
