Eco Friendly Family Holiday Cottage in the Marche, Italy

Il Roccolo Ascoli Piceno was established in 2013 as a new venture by Martine and David Albon in the Marche region of Italy. We moved here from the UK with our son George, to live and set up a holiday cottage with the focus on providing high quality eco-friendly family holidays in a secluded but easily accessible location.

Situated on the flanks of Monte Piselli, the cottage (La Casetta) overlooks the majestic town of Ascoli Piceno in the Marche, Italy. In among the mountains, close to lovely hill top towns, with great wine producers, great views, great walks, half an hour from the Monte Sibillini and Monti della Laga national parks and half an hour from the sea.

The cottage is a converted stable renovated in 2013 to provide comfortable and attractive accommodation for up to 6 people. In addition there is ample space around the cottage for guests to go for walks, play games, eat outdoors either in the shade or under the Mediterranean sun or simply to relax.

You may not wish to move far from the terrace and 7 acres of woodland and meadow in which the cottage is situated, but if you choose to then you'll discover a beautiful but largely undiscovered region of Italy with lots to offer. Il Roccolo is an ideal base to explore the region or to simply sit back and allow time to pass by.
