Dsicover an ancient Italian watch-tower, exquisitely re-imagined as a tranquil retreat surrounded by breath-taking natural beauty, at the heart of the Monti Sibillini National Park.
  • Sleeps: 11
  • Bedrooms: 4
  • Bathroom: 1
  • Minimum stay: 3 nights

You’ll discover La Roccaccia (“the rock” in English) peacefully elevated over a picture-perfect valley, in the heart of Italy’s Monti Sibillini National Park.

A former watch tower, the building was constructed all the way back in 1080 to defend the Marca Fermana; then part of the Holy Roman Empire.  These days the area is an extraordinarily beautiful and historically significant part of the Marche region.

Perfect for lovers of art, nature, and sublime relaxation, there are two self-contained apartments to choose from at La Roccaccia, sleeping up to nine guests in total.  L’Infernaccio is a ground-floor space that sleeps a family of four, while La Sibilla, on the first floor, sleeps up to five. 

Whichever you choose, you’ll be completely surrounded by fine artistic creations and exceptional valley scenery.  And if that isn’t quite enough, there’s a pool for lazy afternoon laps, and a sun terrace for evening cocktails-with-a-view.

There’s plenty to feast your eyes – and souls – upon in the surrounding area, too.  If you’re in the mood to explore, start by visiting the Gole dell’Infernaccio; magnificent natural gorges carved thousands of years ago by the River Tenna.  

You could also pay homage to the Sanctuary of the Madonna dell’Ambro, one of the most important local places of worship, before savouring another sundowner on that amazing terrace.
