“Great place for a wedding !!”
Reviewed November 13, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed here 3 years ago for two wonderful weeks in the month of September. Loved it so much and so this year our daughter rented 3 of the 4 apartments for her wedding. Damien and Sharon, the owners, had everything ready and in place for us when we arrived. All apartments are so comfortable, decorated nicely and well supplied. All eight of stayed for one awesome week. Before the wedding they had a light traditional lunch delivered to the Villa and we ate it in the beautiful courtyard. The wedding took place in the Town Hall and was preformed by the Mayor. They have gorgeous wedding pictures taken at the Villa and on its property near their grape vineyard, a covered pergola and around this beautiful property and in town. Had a wonderful traditional wedding dinner at a local restaurant, Le Clarisse!! This is a great location with so much touring close for wonderful day trips to other Hill Towns and the Sibillini Mountains. I would highly recommend Villa San Raffaello for whatever your Italian vacation plans are!! Damien and Sharon have an informational book in each apartment to help provide you with information on distances to and information about other Hill towns, restaurants, walks and much more. Their recommendation for Picciolo di Rame's 12 coarse dinner was so worth the short drive and reasonably priced!! If you stay here in the summer there is a great pool for swimming and you are welcome to help yourself to any of their garden produce. We all loved our stay here and highly recommend Villa San Raffaello!!

Hi Maria/ Alison
So pleased that everything fell into place for the wedding and great that local florists, cake makers, the Comune and the Photographer came up trumps. Looking forward to seeing the photos. All the best

“Just perfect”
Reviewed November 3, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had ten days at Villa San Raffaello and shared the apartment with friends for five of those. It was a perfect base to be able to do everything we wanted to - local and mountain walks, bike rides, exploring the countryside and villages or swimming and relaxing by the pool. The village of Sarnano is picture-perfect, with great restaurants (La Patata Bollente being a highlight) and friendly locals. Damien and Sharon are fantastic hosts - Damien helped organise rental bikes for us from an amazing bike shop in Polenza - we loved the bikes so much they came back to NZ with us! The apartment and grounds fulfilled all our needs and more. Our Italian home away from home - we would return in a heartbeat.

“Awesome Place!!”
Reviewed October 18, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We rented all of Villa San Rafaello for our group and were not disappointed. It was a fabulous place and lots of room for all of us. The pool area was our gathering spot each morning...we ate several nights at the house...enough tables/chairs for all of us (24) to eat together either inside or out. All of Damien's recommendations were great! Cooking class(es) with Leia were incredible. Sarnano is a great central location and every day we tried something new. Local restaurants were good too! View from the house of Sarnano is incredible...charming Iittle Italian town!

“All the ingredients for a fantastic holiday in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed October 13, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a wonderful two weeks at Villa San Raffaello. The lovely villa, gardens and pool made for a fantastically relaxing holiday and the kids loved being able to pick their own dinner from the veggie patch, recline in hammocks and toast marshmallows on the BBQ. A great base for exploring the nearby Sibillini mountains, and local towns and villages – we enjoyed scenic walks, delicious food, trips to the local lake for swimming and kayaking, Roman ruins and numerous festivals! The house is beautiful, with views of medieval Sarnano and the mountains in the distance and hosts Damien and Sharon couldn’t have been more helpful and welcoming. Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

“The sights, tastes and sounds of irresistible Italy, made memorable in this wonderful villa”
Reviewed September 9, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We were delighted when we saw the villa, as the website promised, situated in beautiful countryside, with lovely sunflower covered fields. The owners Damian and Sharon, welcomed us to their sympathetically converted farmhouse which has a very striking yellow exterior.

We enjoyed eating outside under the pergola on a pretty plot, that included fruit and nut trees, which we were encouraged to eat from. The vegetable garden provided us with a lovely crop of courgettes, tomatoes and rosemary. All organically grown. The bbq/fire pit was an ideal area for evening relaxing and complimented by the free wine included in our welcome pack.
The exquisite views of the Siblini mountains made sun bathing by the pool an all day temptation.

The inside decor of the villa welcomed us with a variety of eclectic tastes. The modern kitchen offered everything for cooking up the local produce from the weekly market (which is a must) or EuroSpin supermarket (good value Parmesan!!).
Our hosts had loads of great advice on entertainment and local eateries: Such as Patate Bollente (the Baked Potato ) restaurant; which although not the most glamorous of names really produced some delicious rustic dishes. We had a great time visiting the surrounding towns, Fermo, Loretto and particularly Sirolo where we spent the day at the beach.
The night life was good too, plenty of bars; Decantautore to name but one, whose proprietor Nicola, is really friendly.
The festa are a an interesting way to be involved in the local culture and we particularly liked the Mexican festa at Belforte del Chianti. Also the Mediterraneo festa in Macerata; in the streets, in the piazza and the amphitheatre, really fantastic music for every taste, a really buzzing evening!
For us, our holiday at Villa San Raffaello was wonderful, the place offers a great base for an Italian adventure.

“A slice of sun drenched Utopia! A beautiful and perfect escape...”
Reviewed August 30, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We spent a wonderful week at Villa San Raffaelo, 6-13 August 2016 with our teenage son and another group of extended family and friends. We were intrigued to find out if it lived up to all the amazing reviews and we were not disappointed! The immaculate apartments (we had rented 2 between us) have been tastefully and stylishly designed and were complete with everything you could possibly need for a holiday stay(even shopping bags for the supermarket and local market day!), down to an amazing collection of board games for all ages, ideal if you wanted to escape the heat of the day. There were many choices of outdoor living space too - including a great pool area with beautiful views of the countryside and nearby medieval town of Sarnano. We enjoyed several very relaxed mornings chilling out there and taking an occasional dip to stay cool in the summer heat. There's a wonderful fire-pit/BBQ for perfect outdoor cooking and relaxing by an open fire sampling Sharon and Damien's home grown and produced wine(part of our 'welcome pack'). The town was also great - not too touristy with many reasonably priced restaurants, bars and cafes to try out. The medieval town is fascinating for a wander and is packed with lots of beautiful churches, houses and 'nooks and crannies' to explore. Lago di Fiastra (lake), a half hour's breathtaking drive away was stunning. Sharon and Damien could not have been more helpful and were a mine of information about all the local places of interest, they recommended many of the local restaurants and were invaluable in telephoning ahead and booking restaurants as we were a large group not very fluent in Italian. The food - from the courgettes, aubergines and tomatoes that the children picked from the home grown vegetable garden, chopped and roasted, to the restaurants and bakeries, the free samples from stalls on market day in Sarnano the food was flawless and delicious. We will definitely return to this perfect slice of Utopia...
