In 2012 we left our busy lives near Oxford-UK (Joe in the 'corporate world' and Carolyn in Education) together with our dog, Django, for a new life in Le Marche. We decided to settle in this area, after spending a few holidays here and chose our villa as soon as we first saw the breath-taking views! Our first year was spent renovating the building, developing two holiday apartments, constructing a swimming pool and landscaping the gardens and grounds. We live in the main part of the Villa and have our own private entrance, terrace & gardens. Django is very friendly & well behaved; he now has a little "brother" Oskar to keep him company. They both spend most of their time with us and sleep inside. We always respect the privacy of our guests, but are happy to help should you need assistance during your stay.
We have both lived and worked in Italy before (Joe is fluent in Italian) and we love the way of life, history, culture, landscape and, of course, the food! We're also passionate about the sea and the mountains and now we can enjoy both when we want a day out. We're really glad that we're near the lovely town of Servigliano, with its shops, market and elegant piazza where we can enjoy a coffee, ice cream or an aperitivo. It's these little things that make living here so special and we never tire of the landscape and the nature that surrounds us. Although it has been hard work developing our little piece of Italy, we really do feel lucky in our new life and it's a pleasure to now share our lovely spot with those wishing to discover the magic of Le Marche.
