Le Marche Villa is a stunning contemporary vacation villa close to the Adriatic coast in the heart of the Marches, the New Tuscany.
How would you describe Malatesta Maison in a nutshell?
Malatesta Maison is a beautiful villa rental set in the rolling hills of the yet to be discovered Le Marche region in Italy. We would describe it as the perfect place to just relax, indulge in the beautiful surroundings and just feel at home.
Please tell us about the food.
There are several very good restaurants near Malatesta, the cuisine in the Marchigian hinterland is home made and traditional: ‘cappelletti in brood’, ‘crescia’ and pecorino cheese are very tasty. In Pergola you’ll find a little food shop where Secondo, the owner, will make you taste the best wines and the region’s delicatessen. In San Lorenzo you’ll find excellent organic fruits and vegetable at Valentino. A little further, in Senigallia and Pesaro, on the coast, you’ll find many shops and, if you prefer gourmet cuisine, you’ll be able to have an unforgettable experience in the two Michelin stars restaurants ‘Madonnina del Pescatore’ of Moreno Cedroni and ‘Uliassi’ of Mauro Uliassi.
But if you don’t feel like venturing out, it is also possible to have a private dinner prepared by our excellent private chef at the house.
How would you describe the style of the interior?
We thought to put together traditional and modern styles and materials of decoration and design to furnish the house. We like the idea to use natural items such as wood, linen, cement etc., mixed with small and big vintage objects to give warmth and a unique ambience to the house.
How did you end up opening a holiday house?
When we decided to restore this ancient and beautiful country house, we discovered it was a holiday resort of an important Italian family, ‘Malatesta from Rimini’. It was a great joy for us because our idea was to give a new life to the house as a villa rental and a perfect home for a special stay for our guests.
To you personally, what is so special about Malatesta Maison?
Malatesta Maison is special because it’s in the wonderful region of Le Marche, a region that has yet to be discovered. The house is located in a unique position, on the top of a hill with a view that leaves you breathless. Spending time here you won’t get tired of this beautiful landscape.
