Il Gelso is a wonderful recently restored and meticulously maintained country villa for 10 guests. Positioned in the middle of the hills in the Marche, only 25 minutes away from one of the best beaches at the Adriatic coast. The house was built in 1892, in brickstone which was typically for this area. Recently the house has been restored by the owners of which the husband is a renown architect from Milan, with Dutch backgrounds.
The villa guarantees the best views over the countryside from every corner. A lovely garden with nice terraces and old trees is the perfect place to enjoy these views,
The large openings of the windows let the landscape perfectly blend into the architecture, creating a luminous inside space in which the "outside" becomes the "inside". The colors of the outside, the browns of the land, the green of the garden, the yellow/orange of the sunflowers are all colors that you will also find inside.
The villa has been renovated with traditional local and recycled materials. For instance, ceramic tiles to create colorful "patchwork walls" in the bathrooms and kitchen, stone and marble sinks, terracotta tiles for the grand staircase, the terraces and the swimming pool. These elements are combined with floors made of large pieces of chestnut wood sanded by hand and coated with a cement resin especially created for this project. The design furniture and other elements turns this villa into a exclusive and contemporary place, although the traditional feeling of the house and the surroundings are respected. Il Gelso feels like a HOME.
