Whatever positives have been posted by previous visitors to La Casa degli Amori are far exceeded by the experience at this great B&B near Treia. From the moment we arrived Sandy and Laurence provided service which exceeded anything one would experience in a 5 star hotel. Laurence helped us with luggage to our rooms, Sandy prepared tea/coffee/drinks and a light snack as we arrived mid afternoon. Discussion followed and both outlined the many things we could do and places we could visit and restaurants where we could eat. Each day we received a casual briefing at breakfast about what to do and see that day based on their first hand knowledge and experience. Nothing is a trouble for these people who are excellent hosts and are on hand to attend to any request -- even Laurence driving one of our party to San Severino Marche hospital where she spent the whole day in emergency. The other 2 of us followed by car and Laurence phoned on 3 occasions during the day to find out how we were getting on. We rate the service as impeccable and the reviews of contributors, including this one, are surpassed once having had the experience. We can't speak highly enough of our experience on all levels.
The property is an old, beautifully renovated farm house. We had 2 bedrooms which were large and well furnished and had large, well appointed bathrooms with large shower recess - an exception in Italy. They are very sound proof ensuring good sleeping conditions. The beds were as comfortable as one could get and we asked Sandy where they came from so we could perhaps follow up on return home. The views are great from all sides and it is easy to walk for kilometres on the roads which lead away from the property. Although depending on the dress of the walker, Laurence might report that he saw tramps along the road and wondered from where they came. The swimming pool and surrounding area are large and well furnished with sun lounges, umbrellas and tables. The location is not far from Treia and Laurence's directions to the property are detailed and easy to follow. He usually meets people at the turn off on the main road into Treia. A GPS made it even easier to get to the property. We went into Treia each night for dinner at Antiche Mure restaurant which was excellent. Laurence gave us the easy way to get to the parking area and to the restaurant. Sandy and Laurence recommended other restaurants in Tolentino, San Severino (Da Pierro, where Laurence had his birthday party while we were there) but we were unable to visit most of these because of the illness of one of our party. The location is great and very convenient, being 5 minutes drive outside the town and all of the towns and locations which one wishes to visit or see are all within easy driving distance. Laurence can give directions which cut lots of time from trips because they cut across main roads and are more direct.
The breakfasts have enough variety to please any taste or preference. Nothing is a trouble to either Sandy or Laurence who are on hand at all times. We did not have dinner during our stay but one of our party was confined to her room for most of the stay and her requests for dinner were provided each night into the room.
There is a large, comfortable sitting room on the ground floor where people can relax with drinks, coffee or tea after returning from daily travels.
La Casa degli Amori is a fantastic place to stay and there is nothing we can find to say that needs to be improved. i
