A unique monumental building, the XV century Torre del Pestrino overlooks a 180° landscape stretching from the Adriatic sea to the Sibillini mountains.
The tower is conveniently located in the middle of the medieval village of Montefiore dell'Aso with a 150 square meter private garden. It was part of the ancient city walls, facing south, and was built with defensive purposes, as clearly shown by the massive structure. It was then turned, trough the following centuries, into the public oil mill, hence the name.
The two lower floors of the building, as well as the overall structure, were completely restored less than five years ago. The entire restoration was conducted in the attempt to recreate the original style, combined with details of modern design and luxury finishing. Materials have been chosen accordingly, yet comfort has been considered a priority, with floor heating and a modern kitchen complete with dishwasher, microwave oven and espresso machine.
Montefiore is among the officially listed historical villages in Italy (Borghi più belli d'Italia) and the Torre del Pestrino is included among the relevant monuments in the town. Located at 410 m. above sea level on top of a hill, Montefiore is only 12 Kilometers from the nearest beach and about one hour drive from the ski resorts.
Throughout many centuries Montefiore was praised for its perfect climate, never too hot in summer and far from the humidity of the coast in the colder months.
Our carefully restored ancient watchtower is located in a medieval village, on the Marchegiano hills. With a private garden and luxury finishing, it is close to the mountains, historical locations and beach.
Please understand that, given the particular nature of the building and its historic value, it was not possible to make an easy access for handicapped people. Two floors are connected with a steep staircase and the garden itself lies on two levels. We strongly regret the inconvenience.
Marcello and Simonetta share a deep passion for culture and the arts. Simonetta is a school music teacher and Marcello is a renowned professional violinist.
We fell in love with the Marche region many years ago and we committed to buying, saving and restoring this beautiful piece of history in 2008. We followed every step of the restoration with passion, shaping the project with our own tastes and ideas. It is our wish that this is 'home': every detail has been tailored to make the place cosy and comfortable and highlight its fascination.
We are really passionate about this special place and we try to keep it as cosy, tidy and clean as possible. Therefore we strongly recommend to absolutely refrain from smoking inside the house. Despite our love for animals we also believe they shouldn't be allowed. Our own cat and dog never set foot inside: people with an allergy might be customers after you and they will definitely appreciate this.
