The beautiful gardens and pool that surround La Pergola have been designed with the same lightness of touch as the stylish interior
La Pergola is a beautiful villa for eight in the hills of Le Marche. Its private setting in this beautiful rolling landscape influenced a careful renovation that celebrates the garden as much as the rooms inside.
Everything that could be preserved was, including the beamed ceilings and rough stone walls. Vintage finds, handcrafted furniture and original artwork followed. Then in came the new: sleek concrete floors with underfloor heating, local tiles and select design pieces by Kartell, Casa Lumi and Charles Eames.
The location informed the warm interior colour palette – beautiful olive greens and sandy whites, as well as natural materials, including wood and linens, to create a cohesive whole where guests can kick back in comfort.
The four en-suite bedrooms are comfortable and charming, particularly the top-floor suite with its bath, and sitting room next door. And then the garden is every bit as lovely as the house. Palm, olive and cypress trees give a holiday vibe, as do the saltwater pool, mass of comfy sunloungers, BBQ, terraces and pretty Mediterranean planting. There are lots of places to laze with a book, to snooze, to eat, to drink or swing in a hammock.
Leave the gates and you’ll find all the supplies you need just 3km away in Petritoli. Just fifteen minutes and you’ll be at the nearest beach, and a tiny bit further still and you’ll be at the fine white sandy beaches of the Riviera de la Palme. Otherwise, the Sibillini Mountains are an hour away. You may, of course, have found your place on the pool lounger and feel no need to venture anywhere.
