We loved this place, and the people who own/run it - Ian and Jane - are great. Highly recommend as a centrally located place from which to explore Le Marche.
We spent 5 weeks bicycling in Italy (had a rental car and rode our bikes daily from the places we chose to stay) . At Il Cantinone, we stayed 3 nights in the 2 bedroom apartment. It was beautifully appointed - very modern, with a very well equipped kitchen, lots of natural light in the bedrooms and bathrooms, very clean throughout, and very comfortable beds. We really enjoyed being able to cook all of our meals for a change after staying in B&Bs and inns prior to staying here. (For those who prefer B&Bs, Ian and Jane offer the B&B option as well.) Ian and Jane restored Il Cantinone, originally a winery, from a falling-down condition to it's present grand, classic Italian farmhouse character. It is a beautiful, impressive building inside and out.
Ian and Jane are warm, friendly and helpful. They shared wine with us our first night, and invited us to homemade Italian pizza which they cooked in their authentic pizza oven out by the swimming pool. They are retired computer gurus, so the wireless set up was accessible and easy to use. It was handy when we wanted to skype family back home, check email or look something up on the Internet.
You won't go wrong staying here!
