La Fenella, Marche, Italy | villas for rent, villas to rent

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 watermill. 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.

Divided into two separate apartments that can be joined to accommodate up to 12, each is eye-catching in its authenticity, with huge rustic oak beams, limestone walls, and rustic tiles, as well as bright open spaces offering lovely views of the property.

Entering from the grand hall covered in frescoes, you arrive into a spacious ground floor living and dining room with a big fireplace and sitting areas which connect to a large well-equipped kitchen. Adjacent to the living room is the master bedroom and an additional double bedroom, each with comfortable sitting areas. A third bedroom was designed from the original millers kitchen and sleeps two. The bedrooms share a spacious and modern double bathroom with a two person spa tub.

Upstairs, is a cozy living room and dining area with a breakfast corner and 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 additional 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.


ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Welcome basket of Prosecco and antipasti. Optional welcome dinners and private chef with cooking workshops, wine tastings and truffle hunts available. Picnic services, mountain bike, scooter and quad rentals available. Wifi throughout. Luxury linens (changed weekly), orthopedic mattresses, shared laundry facilities.

Gola della Rossa 2 Br 2 Ba Sleeps 4 Min 3 nights
from €160 /nt
This independent two-story space within the estate was originally the house of the miller and the farmer but fell into ruin. The owners (with the help of their contractor and his team) recently rebuilt it stone by stone, using as many original materials as possible. Instead of a ruin, today guests can now look forward to a wonderful, rustic house with authentic details and playful arches. The space is a harmonious interplay of robustness and spaciousness, which is loosened up by contemporary elements. The side entrance on the ground floor leads directly to a hall with a breathtaking high ceiling, stucco decoration and wooden beams, which is complemented by extraordinary works of art and a large designer lamp. The hall borders the modern kitchen and the living room with its large dining table for up to six people, wonderful lounge sofa, books and games. From the hall, a wide staircase leads up to two bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. There is a private terrace with dining table, plus a shared grill, brazier, and swimming pool with sun terrace.
