We stayed for 6 nights at il Crinale and had a wonderful time. The agriturismo is located out in the country, about 5 mins by car from the town of Spinetoli. The nearest big town is Ascoli Piceno which is about 20 mins away by car, and is well worth visiting - it has a beautiful main piazza. Similarly, if you are interested in beaches etc., it is about 20 mins from the coastal resort of San Benedetto del Tronto. The setting of the agriturismo is beautiful, set among the rolling hills in this region of the Marche. The views are fantastic, especially from the balcony of our room which looked east towards the coast. The room was large and air conditioned and was spotlessly clean - the rooms are cleaned every day. The Wi-fi access was pretty good in the rooms and around the main building. The pool area is clean and well maintained with great views of the surrounding countryside. The pool itself has an interesting design, basically two circular pools on split levels with a waterfall feature where water from the upper pool flows into the lower pool.
The agriturismo offers a lunch and evening meal with a fixed menu. However, we didn't available of this service during our stay, instead preferring to go into Ascoli Piceno where there was a great selection of restaurants, all of them excellent. Make sure to try the stuffed olives or "olive ascolana" - local delicacy and absolutely delicious. In fact, our ony real criticism of the area was the lack of good local restaurants - unfortunately it's mainly pizzarias as you get closer to the coast.
The service at the agriturismo was terrific, really warm and friendly, especially Cristina who really made us feel welcome.
If you are looking for a quiet spot out in the countryside with great views and a warm welcome, we can definitely recommend "il crinale".
