We arrived at Villa San Raffaello after an exhausting week of sightseeing in Rome. It was the perfect antidote. It's location, just a kilometre from the enchanting medieval town of Sarnano meant that shops and restaurants were nearby whilst at the same time the Villa's rural location provided peace, quiet and tranquility vital for a relaxing break. The old farmhouse has been brilliantly converted into four apartments and the pool and grounds were a delight. Damian was on hand to answer any questions and give advice and even took us and some of the other occupants for an amazing walk over the hills. This is also the perfect base for exploring this part of Le Marche.
