- What our clients say
July 2018 - FVB, Belgium: 'Visiting different regions in Italy for a number of years now, I can honestly say that Le Marche was a real discovery. To my humble opinion one of the most beautiful regions from a nature perspective. Also for those who think that Umbria and Tuscany are too touristic, this is a must see and visit …. living alone amongst locals. l Convento, blends in perfectly in this environment. Paola and Peter (the owners) did an amazing job, creating a unique villa with a lot of style and character with one of the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen. A perfect place to stay and relax but also the perfect base to discover places like Cingoli, Cupramontana, Macerata, Staffolo, Ancona, the Adriatic coast, ….
We enjoyed it, loved it and can certainly recommend it.'
