    Property description
    Santa Vittoria in Matenano
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5
    Wander through the narrow medieval streets and alleyways of Santa Vittoria in Matenano, moments from the 13th century clock tower at the gateway to town, and you will find this welcoming cottage. Carceri Vecchie is not just the name of this pretty cobbled ally, it's also the site of this historic town's ancient prison and means just that. Today the house sits amongst historic palazzos and gardens, but the dungeons still exist two storeys down underneath the cobbles where today happily our neighbour stores wine and olive oil under the cool dark vaults and archways.

    Relax amongst the lemon trees and vines on the sunny roof terrace or enjoy a lunch in the shade of the private courtyard. Completely renovated in 2013 the cottage has all the modern comforts of home, yet just footsteps...

Our accommodation (which had been recently and loving renovated) provided a fantastic base to explore Santa Vittoria and the surrounding hill side towns. A walk to explore the small town of Santa Vittoria on the first evening was a delight and allowed us to spy the surrounding villages and speculate on which was the most attractive and how far away they actually were by road. As a keen cyclist I was not afraid of the hills and was able to cycle to Montefalcone before breakfast one morning.
We ate out in both the restaurants in the town, enjoying the local pasta dishes and the different atmosphere of both establishments. We also catered for ourselves, able to shop in the excellent bakery/cafe and in both the small local supermarkets. We used the well equipped kitchen to cook some excellent meals.
We will certainly look to return in the future, we had just enjoyed a week at the seaside so concentrated on local attractions but we think we could get the best of both worlds in...

We just loved the panoramic views from Santa Vittoria. In whichever direction you look there are other Medieval towns perched on impossible hilltops. We explored a good few, but spent a lot of our time at the beach at Pedaso and Grottamare. The drive to the coast is lovely especially if you take the longer hilly routes. The house itself was perfect and only a few minutes from what became our favourite restaurant at Farfense. Also worth going to was the place just outside the old part of town Trattoria Vittoria - good local food and very reasonable. All in all a wonderful holiday we'd have no hesitation in recommending to others. more
