An introduction to Malatesta Maison

How would you describe Malatesta Maison in a nutshell?

Malatesta Maison is a hidden gem in the hills near the Adriatic Coast. With breathtaking valley views, it exudes a modern vibe that seamlessly blends with the calming, natural surroundings. Malatesta Maison is an ideal spot for families or groups looking for a comfortable escape in Marche, with easy access to charming towns and beaches.

What is the story behind it, what was your inspiration to buy the property?

After years of visiting Italy, we decided to turn our dream of owning a house there into a reality. The turning point came during a visit to the region at the end of Covid, prompting us to embrace the beauty and possibilities of the Italian lifestyle, sooner rather than later. 

The previous owners also rented out the villa. Are there any changes you made since you bought the villa?

We've made some enhancements to the house, opening up the entire villa to create a total of nine bedrooms. Additionally, we've introduced a new entertainment lounge equipped with a TV and PlayStation. While incorporating air conditioning, we've endeavoured to preserve the timeless beauty and charm that the house has always exuded.

How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of Malatesta Maison?

Considering the property’s stunning backdrop and hillside setting, we aimed to create a modern vibe in harmony with the calming, natural surroundings. Our interior design focus was to seamlessly complement the environment, from the choice of furnishings to the use of natural linen in the bedrooms.

We want to ensure that every guest enjoys their stay, immersed in the beauty of the surroundings.

To you personally, what is so special about Malatesta Maison?

It is the perfect place to unwind amidst breathtaking surroundings. The chance to indulge in local cuisine and wine while soaking in the serene valley views brings a sense of bliss. With beautiful beaches just 40 minutes away and easy access to Rome (4.5 hours drive), Florence (3.5 hours), and Perugia (less than one hour), it offers a relaxing escape that feels secluded, without being remote.

When is the best time to visit Le Marche?

Marche has something special to offer, no matter what time you choose to visit. In spring, vibrant flowers and lush greenery create a scenic backdrop for activities like hiking.

Summer is ideal for exploring the region’s medieval towns and relaxing on the Adriatic beaches, with lots of cultural events and festivals taking place.

Early autumn (September to October) offers mild weather and fewer crowds, and is the grape harvest season for wine tasting. The truffle season extends from late autumn to early spring (peaking from October to December). Truffle enthusiasts can indulge in the region's renowned dishes and join truffle-hunting events.
