What we like about this property

We love the sympathetic restoration of this ancient mill and the pastoral location with its private stream and waterfalls, and acres of unspoiled nature. Changing very little of what history and the former inhabitants originally intended, this vacation home rental in Italy is a place of inspired preservation with welcoming warmth and simple country charms.

For the main property, see La Fenella. For the other apartment in this building, see Costa Conero. An additional unit, Gola della Rossa, has just been added.

Description

Surrounded by over 32 acres of stunning natural beauty in the heart of Le Marche, this vacation home rental in Italy immerses you into the authentic history of the region in a thousand year old former water mill. Nestled up against the Gola della Rossa national park, the ancient structure was lovingly and respectfully restored by a Dutch couple who while in search of their dream home, stumbled on the dilapidated ruins and fell in love. Renovations took over three years and the painstaking process revealed ancient frescoes and many of the unique and original structural features. 

The property played a dramatic role in history when previous owner signor Caverni sheltered the Alcalay family during WW2 in the original kitchen on the second floor. Due to his efforts, the entire family survived the war including son Albert Alcalay who went on to become a world renowned abstract artist with exhibitions in the Guggenheim and around the world.

One of two apartments that were divided, this second floor space is eye catching in its authenticity with huge rustic oak beams under the hood of the mill and lovely views of the property. Entering from the grand hall covered in frescoes, you arrive in the cozy living room and dining area with a breakfast corner with a rounded fireplace. The apartment offers sleeping space for four to six people with two double bedrooms and one bath, and from the living area a small arch-way leads to a fun sleeping nook that can accommodate one adult or two kids. A large professionally equipped kitchen is situated just outside of the apartment in one of the former caves. 

The grounds are ideal for wandering and exploring the beautiful countryside with a private stream, lagoons and waterfalls as well as acres of forests. Simple and rustic, this property offers a peaceful and authentic rural escape.

For larger groups, the two apartments can be rented together and can accommodate up to 12 guests. With the addition of Gola della Rossa, 16 guests can be accommodated.

    We enjoyed our holiday at La Fenella! A beautiful location, nicely furnished apartment and facilities in and around the accommodation, but above all the warm hospitality!
    In short, a holiday that we will never forget. We would like to come back with four of us in the future.

    Truly amazing place surrounded by astonishing nature where you will be welcomed by two warmhearted owners and their dogs. The stream next to “the old lady” (the house), the small waterfall, the hills, the flowers, the birds and butterflies show you the abundance of nature and make you forget about time. The interior of the house is very tasteful, light and natural. A great resort to get rest, recharge and enjoy the greatness of nature while enjoying a book, sipping a glass of nice wine and eating delicious Italian food.

    What a wonderful week of untouched Italy

    Full admiration for the dream that the owners are hunting. Looking at what they’ve put down, it’s going to work!
    The atmosphere that they have created is perfect for the environment and beautiful to see how the two really make a part of the local environment, including the contact with local people.
    Truffles were always tasty, but found themselves in the woods of the estate and then prepared by chef Luciano is divine.

    We will definitely be back.

    Delicious stay with my family in La Fenella. Beautiful decoration of the watermill and our apartment Grotte di Frasassi. We had a fabulous dinner at La Fenella prepared by the Ialian chef Luciano.
    Good tips for trips in the area and tasty restaurants.

    I can recommend this highly

    The history of the house and the valley is very tangible, captured not only in the location and its beauty but also in the loving way the house is being brought back to life.
    Rene and Jeanette are amazing hosts and my stay here was just magical!

    Tranquility, beauty, space and fun owner.

    Our group of six friends stayed here for an extended weekend. After a very long day’s travelling, we arrived to this beautiful house brilliantly lit in a pitch-black valley, and nestled in the mountains.
    We were met by a warm reception and some delicious local wine provided by Rene.
    So began a lovely weekend at La Fenella. The house itself is huge but cosy, decked out in half-Dutch minimalist, half-Roman villa style – all very tasteful. There is a full kitchen which we used to cook for six with no trouble. Rene was always on hand for help if we needed it: an extra towel, or a local recommendation.
    On our second night Rene organised for a local chef to come and cook us a 4 course meal – it was simple but delicious. We even tried white truffle which Rene had been saving for us in his fridge.
    We didn’t make it very far into the surrounding countryside, so satisfied were we with the peace and tranquillity of the place, and with enjoying our friends. But it is truly beautiful out there, stacked full of walks, truffle hunts, quad bikes etc. – great for an adventurous group.
    I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to get away from the buzz, but who still wants a little bit of interaction.

    The reason for our trip to Italy, Le Marche was my 4oth birthday.
    Together with my wife, my children and my best friends, we went to the watermill by the brook. It was a big party for a whole week. The mill lies in a beautiful scenery.
    Jeanette and René are fantastic hosts. They took care of everything, so we did not have to do anything. They also brought us the best food in the area (prepared by chef Luciano) for my birthday. We usually spent our evenings at the camp fire. The beer was stored in a cool place, the owls were screaming and the dogs were watching around us.
    I can highly recommend this accommodation.
