Overview

Le Marche is a truly beautiful region of Italy located on the Eastern side of the country on the Adriatic Coast. This is the REAL ITALY. Unspoilt by mass international tourism - this is where Italians come to holiday and is where you will find one of Italys best kept secrets.

Your accommodation will be in the historical centre (centro storico) of the picture postcard hill top town of Montalto delle Marche which is strategically positioned between award winning beaches on the coast (which is only 25 minutes away) and the mountains of the Sibillini National Park.

"La Torre Sopra" is a very large (100sqm) apartment set over the top two floors of this impressive 500 year old townhouse and comfortably sleeps up to 6. It has a private roof terrace with spectacular views looking over the Le Marche countryside out towards the sea in the distance.

There is a lounge and a sun lounge so you will have plenty of space to spread out.

The kitchen is very well equipped with all modern conveniences including smeg applicances.

WIFI broadband Internet is available free of charge using either your own equipment or the supplied computer.

Hiring a car is essential for exploring this beautiful region of Italy.


Montalto delle Marche
The town has a population of about 2400 so has all the services that you would expect of a town this size including: restaurants, bars, a bank, post office, tobacconist, fresh pasta shop, greengrocer, butcher, cheese and salami store, fishmonger, childrens playground and a cake shop (that we highly recommend)!

Some of the cultural and historical highlights not to miss in Montalto include:

* Wander around the old town which is like entering a picture postcard
* Visit the convent of Saint Augustine
* See the basilica of Santa Maria Assunta built in 1587 by Pope Sisto V - while you are there go downstairs and youll see that this is a church build on a church.
* The museums at the town hall include the Archaeology Museum, Civic Picture Gallery, Prison Museum and Ethnographic Museum

If you are lucky you might even hear "La Cordata" - the famous Montalto male choir practising.

Out and About the Region
The only problem that you will have while you are here is fitting it all in. This is why many of our guests return year after year!

Some of the highlights to our beautiful region include:
Visit Loreto - One of the holiest places in Italy.
Have a day or more lazing on the blue flag beaches on the Adriatic coast.
Go to the open air opera at Macerata
Visit the provincial capital - Ascoli Piceno, which is thought to be older than Rome
Take a walk in the Sibillini National Park with its breathtaking scenery.
Go for a wine tasting in one of the local cantinas.
Wonder around the local markets picking up a bargain or two.
Enjoy a great firework display at one of the many festivals that take place throughout the year.
Visit the Frasassi caves - thought to be the largest limestone caves in Europe.

Summary:

Large luxury apartment in picture postcard medieval hill top town which is set over two floors with a stunning roof top terrace giving incredible views. Set between Adriatic Coast and National Park.

We booked for my 40th birthday, the town is lovely, the people are too. The property however....is mindblowing!! There is an abundance of charm, character and most importantly, thought gone into this place. Everything is just so! I am slightly reluctant to mention that the place is up some pretty steep hills. We dragged along my 70 year mum whos not exactly nimble anymore! Even she said that you cant get views like we had without climbing a little. I can recommend this property enough, there is a million things to do which isnt worth ranting on about as everyones tastes are different. Just book it, you cant be upset.

Lovely area of Italy, unspoilt by tourism. Montalto is a very quiet but attractive historic village set on a hill top. The accommodation was very comfortable and full of character with a great roof terrace looking out over the village and surrounding area. Car is essential to get around. Use of the pool was an added bonus. Overall a great place for a holiday.

What a delightful apartment this is and we had a wonderful time there during our two week stay. On arrival we were greeted by the lovely Maria who looked after our every need and was extremely knowledgeable about Montalto itself, local wineries and places to visit - both near and far. She is also an exceptional cook and we dined at her house on two occasions - both of which were memorable. From the apartment terrace we enjoyed a panoramic view of the countryside, mountains and Adriatic coast and both sunrise and sunset viewed from there were spectacular. We plan to return again next year and I have no hesitation in recommending the venue to couples, families and groups of friends.

We were very thankful and pleased by the friendly, personal attention of the owners Mark & Andy. The highlight of the apartment itself was the lovely terrace. We found our time at La Torre Sopra relaxing and very pleasant and would recommend it to others.

The best experience of Italy anyone could wish for. Apartment lovely and Mark and Andy were excellent hosts who took care of us and helped us with anything we needed. Such a wonderful location with stunning views and so much information provided by Mark and Andy of what to do in the region. Wouldnt hesitate to recommend to anyone. Thank you for a perfect holiday.

People say that you should never return to the same place twice. I can certainly put that myth to bed as our second visit to Real Italy in July 2012, not only confirmed our previous memories of this idyllic property in Montalto delle Marche but enhanced them even further! Mark, Andy, Mutley and the new addition to the family George, all made our second stay a truly unforgettable experience. From exceptionally furnished, carefully maintained, comfortable and homely property with picturesque views that are hard to be beaten, to welcoming and ever helpful owners who always go that extra mile to ensure your stay is enjoyable, any holidays within the Real Italy portfolio would be enjoyed by all. Plenty to see and do in and around the region. Within a short drive you can have miles upon miles of glorious beaches along the Adriatic coast, or visit nearby Ascoli to take in a fabulous City with artwork beyond expectations within the cathedrals and churches (and best of all its free). Further afield you visit the splendour of Assisi and the fantastic Frassisi Caves, or you can simply put your feet up and rest in the comfort of your own garden or sun terrace. In two visits totally 3 weeks, we still feel that there is lots of places to visit and things to see and do, so another stay may be on the cards in the near future. What more can I say apart from, if you are reading this review then you must be contemplating staying at this property, my recommendation would be not to hesitate. Just book you will not be disappointed.

We spent three relaxing weeks at La Torre Sopra and were sorry to leave. Mark and Andy were great hosts, really knowledgeable about the area and couldnt have been more helpful. They were kindness itself and made our stay in the lovely apartment extra special. The area is stunning and Montalto is truly a medieval, mountaintop little "city" with its own cathedral. The hours spent on the terrace were magical - the views are out of this world with Le Marche and the distant Adriatic beckoning. Above the terrace the swallows swooped and circled - a joy to watch. We hope to come back to this beautiful apartment and area with its charming, local people.

The apartment is beautiful, comfortable and well equipped. The views are just breath-taking. Montalto itself is a nice little town and is in easy reach of lots of other gorgeous places too. Best of all though was the welcome: Mark and Andy are such wonderful hosts - friendly, helpful and infomative - and they also helped ensure we never ran out of wine! Mark is also a great cook - his lemon tiramisu is not to be missed! Highly recommended.

The apartment was beautifully furnished, light and airy, with a very well equipped kitchen and exceeded our expectations. The main delight of the apartment was the large terrace with its magnificant views over the hills to the Adriatic. We would strongly recommend both the location and the apartment to friends. However, what really made this holiday special was the kindness and thoughtfulness of the owners who did everything possible to ensure that we were well looked after including bowls of fresh vegetables and home made bread and jam on arrival! Thanks so much to both!

There is really nothing at all we could complain about. The rooms are comfortably and very well furnished, the view on the terrace is a spectacle itself, you have a free internet access on the hall (to know the weather forecast or write an email), you need not carry heavy water bottles (nor wine or beer), cause you can buy them in the property, and last but not least the two owners, Mark and Andy, really will do everything if you habe a request or complaint. A really phantastic appartment in the center of Marche, we recommend it!

Hello Andrew and Mark as we told you during our stay in your nice and lovely appartment, we enjoyed our stay and it met all our expectations. If it will be possible we will return but in the meantime we can recoomend it to all our friends. Your appartment with the wonderful terrasse will be fantastic as well during the winter months!! Thanks a lot and tanti saluti da Cologne.

the property more than met our expectations with the spectacular location, presentation of the well appointed apartment and warm welcome from the hosts. One week is no where near enough time to enjoy all the apartment and area have to offer. The apartment layout is perfect for groups to enjoy their own living areas and the roof top terrace invites the morning sun! We look forward to our next visit.

Our second stay here - even better than the first. I love this place: living in the town/village visiting the great places near-by just sitting on the terrace for breakfast/lunch/dinner watching the swallows swoop through the rooftops. Wonderful hosts. Just heaven.

This stunning property is in the perfect location. You can visit the coast and the fantastic beaches in the morning and then spend the afternoon enjoying the scenery of the Sibillini mountains. We have stayed at this property at least 10 times and will continue to return as often as possible to enjoy the outstanding hospitality that is always shown to us by the owners. They go out of their way to ensure that every part of your holiday is perfect. I cannot recommend La Torre Sopra highly enough.

We rarely return to places that we have visited on holiday but our previous fantastic experience of staying with Mark and Andy meant that we could not wait to visit Montalto again. Their hospitality is second to none, the views are exceptional and the apartment is outstanding and incredibly well equipped. We will definitely recommend to friends (although we would really like to keep this part of Italy a secret all to ourselves!!).

Mark and Andy are the most wonderful hosts which only adds to the joy of staying in their beautiful apartment. The apartment is full of charm and is extremely comfortable and the views from the roof terrace are outstanding. There are some wonderful towns and villages close to Montalto to explore and the coast is a short drive away. The great hospitality, fantastic accommodation, great views and wonderful food cannot be faulted and we are already planning our next visit to stay at La Torre Sopra. Thank you for making us so welcome. It already feels like a home from home and we cant wait for our next trip.

Third visit answers all questions.
We're leaving here after three splendid months, exploring towns and villages, the beaches and walking in the Sibillini National Park. Thank you for your lovely apartment, your friendship and all that you have done to make this such a happy time.Joanna and Charlie, Wiltshire
It's been a very fast week and we love the area. Wonderful hosts and nothing is too much bother. Spent a terrific evening and had an awesome meal as a local restaurant where Maria never stopped bringing "Appies". Would love to come back to Montalto.Allan, Carol, Dennis and Phylis, Canada
Our second trip to Le Marche and Real Italy! Our first and lasting impression of Montalto is superb. First class accommodation, good friends and thanks for all your help and taking time to socialise - hopefully we will be neighbours in Castignano and look forward to seeing you both in the near future. Website great and very helpful!Christine and John, West Yorkshire
What an amazing time! You made our first tip to Italy complete. So helpful friendly and welcoming. We have already booked for next year. The apartment is fantastic - you should both be very proud. I can't believe we found such a gem!Donna & Ray, South Wales
