Our family reunion at Villa San Raffaello was the highlight of our three weeks in Italy. With its picturesque location in Le Marche, Damien and his family have created a retreat for the senses and the soul. The four unique and charming apartments (in the former farmhouse and barn), have been thoughtfully outfitted to serve as a real home away from home. The interior spaces are designed beautifully to accommodate groups so that our extended family of ten could comfortably gather together in any one apartment. The full kitchens are equipped with everything you could possibly need to cook gourmet meals, and the gorgeous outdoor eating spaces made every meal memorable. Damien has used reclaimed wood to make rustic tables and pergolas, and even tea lights and hanging lanterns have been provided to make those warm evenings all the more magical. The beautiful landscaping gives the grounds an informal atmosphere so that you feel at home hanging out and relaxing there. We spent many hours at the pool with its splendid views of the nearby medieval hilltop village of Sarnano, the organic vegetable garden (which guests are welcome to harvest for their own meals), and suspended from the many hammocks hung in all the best spots to laze away a sunny afternoon. There are amazing views of the mountains from most of the property, and close access to hiking trails and bike routes, while lakes and seaside are only a short drive away. Damien is a warm and affable host and is at the heart of what makes a holiday at Villa San Raffaello such a magnificent experience. A source of infinite suggestions on what to do and where to go, he went out of his way to arrange bicycle rentals for the avid cyclists in our group and had them waiting for us at the villa when we arrived. We had an unbelievable twelve course dinner sourced with all local foods at a hidden-away restaurant we never would have come across on our own, and went to a magnificent opera festival nearby at Damien’s suggestion as well. Damien clearly cares about creating an unforgettable experience for his guests. And he does; we came away from our week at Villa San Raffaello relaxed and rejuvenated, and I can’t recommend it highly enough!

We had a 4-day stay at Villa San Raffaello. We stayed in Apartment Elise on the second floor, with 2 bedrooms and a well-equipped kitchen. The covered terrace provides an excellent view of the medieval town of Sarnano, and a perfect place to relax and enjoy your meals. It is well located as a base to visit nearby hill towns. Villa San Raffaello's website offers numerous itineraries of towns to visit and things to do.

We had a fantastic holiday at Villa San Raffaello, staying with our 2 children aged 12 and 14 in one of the two-bedroom apartments. Our friends were staying in the apartment upstairs, so we had the best of both worlds as we could join them for coffee in the morning on their balcony with a fantastic view. We spent a lot of time at the pool which is a good size and the same depth from one end to the other (ie. stand-up-able-in), enabling some highly competitive games of water polo and pool volleyball. One of the best things about the pool is the incredible views of the mountains – we never tired of it! The town of Sarnano is lovely – lots of history and medieval buildings along with plenty of shops where you can buy pretty much all you need. However, for a slightly more economical shop, there is a supermarket called Euro Spin just outside the town. There are several good bars and restaurants – the wine is excellent and incredibly cheap! We were lucky enough to have two nights at bars with live music and the locals are very welcoming. One evening we were even treated to some rather interesting outdoor opera with acrobatic performances included – never a dull evening! The Villa is in a fabulously peaceful location, despite being so close to the town (you definitely need a car!). We would love to return one day and explore more. Damian and his wife Sharon have put their heart and soul into renovating the property and the result is amazing. It’s heart breaking that they cannot now use the larger property due to earthquake damage (something that has afflicted many houses in the area). We hope that the repairs happen soon so that more people can go and enjoy everything this gorgeous place has to offer.

Having flown into Ancona on very reasonably priced tickets from London, my wife and I and the 2 children picked up the hire car at the airport and in just over an hour we reached our holiday destination. Wow! what a venue – we were immediately taken back by the beautiful rustic surroundings – breath-taking views of the Sibilini mountains and the picturesque town of Sarnano less than a mile away. Villa San Raffaello catered for all of our needs - evenings by the fire BBQ’ing taking in the sights and sounds of rural Le Marche. Lunchtimes under the shade of the grape vines in the garden, siestas in a hammock in the afternoon. Cooling off in the large pool and then relaxing in the shaded areas around the pool overlooking the beautiful scenery while the children played in the water. Inside the apartments – you are met with a stylish kitchen with all the appliances you need to make your holiday a pleasant experience with music system and wifi to suit - exposed stonework and wooden beams are bonus countrified features evident in most of the rooms. Clean simple bathrooms, comfortable bedrooms with shuttered windows to keep out the heat! Pizza oven gave us an another option for alfresco dining in the traditionally paved courtyard for those extended mealtime chats and drinking. Sarnano is a bustling friendly historical town, offering a full range of traditional restaurants and bars to suit, local musicians and performers entertained us on most nights we went out. There are many options for day trips to other historical places of interest although in our week we had we didn’t feel the need to venture too far out and visit them. We did venture out to nearby natural waterfalls to cool off on one afternoon and the nearby bright blue water of Lake Fiastra is another great alternative to the pool for a rustic swim and within spitting distance of Villa San Raffaello. Would I recommend this Villa? – absolutely! (5 stars from us) – we’ll be returning without question! Thank you Damien and Sharon who were fantastic hosts, fluent in Italian and able to help us and advise us as required.

We stayed for two weeks in June with our two children, 4 years and 1 year, and my parents joined us for the first week. Initially we were in apartment Damiano which is a lovely large apartment and very well equipped for self catering. For our second week we moved to apartment Elisa which has a gorgeous balcony where we enjoyed having dinner and watching the sunset over Sarnano. Just a note that this apartment is not as child friendly due to the stairs but there is a stairgate which we also put bags in front of and also the balcony (our kids like to climb). We had no problems though. We ate in most evenings and used the fire pit to BBQ quite regularly. The villa is in a really peaceful location, surrounded by farmland. It is 1km from Sarnano which is walkable along the road but due to the lack of pavement amd speed of traffic is a bit dangerous and i certainly wouldn't do it with kids. However, it is just a couple of minutes drive and has 3 good supermarkets (we preferred Eurospin), butchers, bakers and plenty of bars. Damien us really knowledgeable about the area and gave us some really good tips. There is also a comprehensive guide in the apartments. We would recommend these apartments and had a really great family holiday.
