Restored Farmhouses with Spectacular Views
Casa Fenice, made of two beautiful restored buildings, is located in the village of Santa Maria d’Alto Cielo with spectacular views towards the medieval town of San Ginesio with its church towers and across the undulating hills and valleys towards the Sibillini Mountains.
Once farmhouses, the two buildings have been carefully restored to a high standard using as many of the original materials as possible. The houses are set amongst rolling arable farmland.
The main building is divided into two totally independent self-catering apartments. On the first floor is the smaller apartment and on the ground floor the larger apartment. This first floor apartment is reached via a partially covered outdoor staircase. The apartment has attractive beamed ceilings and exposed beams throughout. The entrance takes you into the open space kitchen/living room. On this floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom. Leading from dining/lounge area there is a balcony where you can dine “al fresco” with stunning views across the valleys towards the Sibillini Mountains.

The lounge has two glazed double doors opening onto a patio and provide a panoramic view of the countryside, the hilltop town of San Ginesio and the Sibillini Mountains in the distance. This area has a ceiling fan and wood-burning stove. A low-level wall partly divides the lounge from the kitchen area.
