An introduction to Casale Tre Gelsi

How would you describe Casale Tre Gelsi in a nutshell?

A cosy yet luxurious, family-run home away from home in Italy’s Marche region.

What is the story behind Casale Tre Gelsi, what was your inspiration to create it?

Before we started this project in Italy, we travelled a lot and always felt happiest when we found small, family-run hotels, particularly in countries like Mexico, Cambodia and Burma. It was while staying with a family on a cattle farm in Argentina and spending time with the gauchos on horseback that we thought this would be something that we would like to do. My husband is an art director and I’m in communications but we had a young son who we wanted to spend more time with.

So we thought about moving to Argentina and buying a cattle farm but it felt too far away. Then we started thinking about other countries and Italy came to mind — my husband’s family is from Italy (although he was born in Switzerland) and Italian is his second mother tongue. Originally, we began looking in northern Italy where his family is from but then someone told us about the Marche region and we loved it immediately.

Over the course of two years, we looked at around 40 houses, then ended up buying the first one we saw. It used to be part of a large winery estate but they began selling off the houses as they only needed the land. Working with a local architect and builders from the nearby village who are experts at renovating old stone buildings, we completely redid the house.

How would you describe the atmosphere and interior design of Casale Tre Gelsi?

In designing the interiors, we wanted a really cosy, relaxing atmosphere with lots of natural colours. Depending on the time of year, the surrounding fields have a very earthy colour to them and that’s what we wanted to capture in the house. The view is amazing, so there is not a lot of interior decoration to distract from it and we avoided using any bright colours. Most of the materials are natural — wood, stone and linen — so it all blends into one another.

We have tried to make things as environmentally friendly as possible, with good insulation, efficient heat pumps and water-saving bathtubs, rainwater collection, as well as no plastic where possible. It was something that was very important to us. The garden is also very natural with plants that don’t need a lot of water, such as lavender, rosemary and olive trees (we make our own olive oil).

Most of our clients are coming from cities and are stressed out from work, so they want to relax. We have invested in very good beds and lots of guests say they sleep better at Casale Tre Gelsi than they do at home. People also comment on the view and how they feel they are not part of the world anymore. We are on a little hill, so you feel quite high up as you look down the valley, with no other houses near us. Particularly at the moment when the world feels a bit hostile, Casale Tre Gelsi is an island of relaxation.

Casale Tre Gelsi rooms & rates

When you enter the gate, you drive up to the property and there is a big courtyard, with the house in an L-shape around it. In the centre of the courtyard is an old olive tree and a porch where you can sit, as well as a big table that can accommodate 14 people and with views of the mountains. Around to one side and down a few steps is the saltwater swimming pool, which is 15 x 4.5 metres and quite private, with lots of sun loungers where you can relax.

From the courtyard terrace, you enter into the kitchen and dining space, which has another big table, then a couple of big steps leading up to the living room. This is one of the oldest parts of the house, with a beautiful wooden ceiling that makes it feel very cosy. There are two sofas here and a fireplace, plus a library with lots of books. Also on the ground floor are two double bedrooms — one off the living room and another off the hallway — both with their own garden sitting areas.

From the living room, a staircase leads to the first floor where there are three rooms. One is more like a suite, with two double bedrooms and a shared bathroom that makes it ideal for families. The other two double rooms both have amazing views and one has a 30-square-metre terrace.

Beside the swimming pool is a pool house where we are building a wellness area and an additional apartment. We also have an orchard behind the house and a large garden with lots of olive trees, plus a big parking area below the house.

We provide guests with towels and bathroom toiletries that are made especially for us and we are always here to offer recommendations or make restaurant reservations. We can organise e-bike rentals and tours and also have a garage where guests can store bicycles if they are bringing their own. On arrival, we provide guests with a small guide featuring restaurant recommendations and maps of local hiking routes.

When we are running the property as a bed and breakfast, we provide not only breakfast but also cook dinner two or three times a week. If guests want to spend all day at the swimming pool, we can also offer them a light lunch.

When the villa is rented in its entirety, we can organise a private chef or fill up the fridge with things that guests like so they don’t have to go shopping when they arrive. We also have an honesty bar with wines from the region that guests can help themselves to.

Things to do in Le Marche & Cingoli

  • Art / Culture
  • Wine tastings
  • Golf
  • Hiking
  • Cycling

We can help guests to organise a boat tour of Conero Regional Park or there are lots of hiking routes in the mountains behind Cingoli where you can go for hours without meeting anybody. I’d also recommend visiting Senigallia and the Renaissance town of Urbino, which is like a huge museum, and you can easily reach Perugia in an hour. There are lots of little towns to explore nearby, such as Loreto with its huge church, and e-bike tours are really nice because the countryside is not too steep. There are also lots of wineries to visit, with the closest one just five minutes walk from Casale Tre Gelsi.

The location of Casale Tre Gelsi

Casale Tre Gelsi is located on a hill looking down towards a valley and is surrounded by a wine estate where you can do tastings. We are en route between the beautiful mountain village of Cingoli (which is around 15 minutes away) and the bigger town of Jesi (around 10 minutes away) where you’ll find lots of shops and restaurants. There are many restaurants around us, with the closest being just five minutes by car or easily accessible by e-bike.

The property is around 30 minutes from the Adriatic coast where you’ll find many different beaches. Senigallia is a beautiful town with a sandy beach and Numana has a nice pebbly beach with clear water. Conero Regional Park features a steep coastline with lots of little pebbly beaches and amazing restaurants, with some only accessible on foot or by boat.

One of the good things about this region is that we don’t have many tourists, so the restaurants are very good because they are catering mostly to locals. If the food isn’t amazing, they won’t come. The locals are also very friendly. Not a lot speak English but they are happy to have people from all over the world visiting.

When is the best time to visit Le Marche?

Spring is very nice because everything is in bloom, the weather’s not too hot and there are not a lot of tourists. You can see some amazing little towns without the crowds! April to June is great, July feels like summer (without too many people) and by August things are getting quite crowded, especially at the beach and you have to book restaurants in advance.

By September, things are quietening down again and the food and wine festivals start, with each village having its own. Towards the end of October is the truffle season, which extends into November.

Winter is an interesting time to visit — you can still go hiking and walk on the beaches, although most of the beach restaurants are closed. In the lead-up to Christmas, there are lots of markets with glühwein, although it can still be warm enough to sit outside in the sunshine.
