In the Marche Region, in the municipality of Arcevia, stands an ancient and characteristic rural village placed in a panoramic position built on a former convent of 1600. Nestled in the Natural Park of the Gola della Rossa and Frasassi in a panoramic position a few kilometers away from the Castle of Avacelli, part of a well-known tourist route among abbeys and castles.
Completely renovated in 2010, the village, now used as a B & B, is spread over several levels preserving the original structure. In addition to the main building, there are 3 other apartments with independent entrances and other rooms used for storage. The property also includes a room for convivial moments with a shared kitchen.
All the apartments have been renovated maintaining the original features. The seismic reinforcement works were carried out at the beginning of 2018.
The property covers 400 sqm, as well as an outdoor courtyard and land of approx. 5 ha., of which 3000 sqm are fenced (vegetable garden and cultivation of saffron), 1.2 ha arable land (in part planted with olive trees) and the rest is woodland.
