“Villa San Rafaello gets better and better!”
Reviewed 14 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

Yet another great holiday at Villa San Raffaello! I'm losing count of the times we've been here since it opened - it's a place easy to fall in love with. I'm writing this lying on a sunbed beside the pool in glorious 30 degree September sunshine, gazing at the mountain scenery and warming up for a dip in the 25 degree pool - bliss.

“Beautiful views, stunning villa, superb holiday”
Reviewed 21 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We stayed at Villa San Raffael for a week in August with 4 children (age 14, 12, 8 and 6). The Villa is situated in a beautiful part of Italy with stunning views of the mountains and the village of Sarnano. The villa has been beautifully restored and the apartments are all very tastefully decorated and well kitted-out. The wi-fi went down well with the older children and the younger children loved the huge choice of games and DVD's. The grounds of the villa are beautiful too with several outdoor areas to eat lunch or play cards in the evening whilst admiring the amazing views. We picked vegetables from the vegetable plot to make dinner (peppers, onions, courgettes, tomatoes) and made use of the well-positioned hammocks set amongst the vines. The children enjoyed the pool which was bigger than we expected and there was a nice selection of sunloungers around the pool. The village itself was a bit too far to walk to, but a ahort drive. The old part of the village is particularly stunning and there are many places to eat or have a drink. Some of the restaurants didn't cater very well for children which became a bit of a problem, but there is a fantastic pasta shop next to the butchers in the main square which makes homemade lasagne and cannelloni which you can take home to heat up. Overall we had a fantastic holiday here with some days lazing by the pool and on other days we went out for daytrips to the coast, to the beautiful mountain lake Fiastra, and white water rafting. Damien and Sharon were very helpful with ideas and were available every morning if we needed help or advice. Damien also speaks fluent Italian which was very helpful when booking trips. We would highly recommend this place.

“Fantastic, I could have stayed forever.”

We stayed here for three beautiful weeks in June with our extended family of kids, teenagers, and adults. The villa, pool, and the view are amazing. Just like a post card. The grounds were very pretty with much interest for all including flower and vegetable gardens, hamocks, swing set, and a fire pit. We ate outside several nights under a lovely flower covered gazebo. We also enjoyed the thousands of twinkling stars and chasing fireflys. The town, Sarnano, was close enough to walk to. It was very charming and had everything we needed. The people in Sarnano and LeMarche are so friendly and accomodating, unlike other places we have visited in Italy and Europe. We really felt welcome wherever we went and we traveled the countryside quite a lot. The numerous towns and country side are well worth exploring. We always came "home " to the villa with someone commenting " That was my favorite town" or " That was the most beautiful countryside view ever"
Damien, the owner, was great. He helped us pre plan parts of our trip and always had ideas for day trips when asked. We enjoyed all of his suggestions including mountain hikes,caves, ancient Roman ruins, beaches, restaurants, and markets.
This is the perfect place for just about anyone. You can easily enjoy life while doing as little or much as you like.

“Ideal accomodations in one of the most beautiful towns we have ever visited”
Reviewed 27 July 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Along with my 12 year old son and 8 year old daughter we spent the last week of June at Villa San Raffaello.The service we experienced was excellant and it began long before we even arrived. Damien, the owner, provided us with plenty of assistance with directions and transportation to the villa from the Rome airport. It was about a 3 in a half hour drive with some stress but worth every minute of travel time. Once we arrived, Damien was always on site and gave us directions and suggestions for our day excursions, dining destinations, cultural events, etc. We loved the property and the accomodations were outstanding. We had a spacious 3 bedroom unit which felt like home. The pool was fabulous and the views of the town of Sarnano were breathtaking. I've been to Italy three times now and with-out a doubt Sarnano is the authentic Italian destination. It is the town we have alwayse searched for but until now never found. We look forward to returning to the Villa and the town of Sarnano.
