“Life enhancing stay in rural Italy - mountains and beach - we will return!”
Reviewed 19 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

A beautifully appointed house on the way up Mont Piselli, with owners on hand to welcome us and assist with the pizza oven! Such a peaceful setting with stunning views of the Tronto Valley and on a clear day the sea beyond. In ten days we sledged up the mountain as there was still snow at the top in March, the children swam in the sea, waded across a river to sulphur springs and admired the sculptures along the harbour wall at San Benedetto Del Tronto - you need a car to visit these wonderful places, but the local area is just beautiful and surprisingly varied with hill top fortresses and villages and the stunning Roman town of Ascoli Piceno below, with what has become my favourite cafe in the world, Cafe Melletti, a collonaded art deco cafe bar in the Piazza Del Popollo, not to mention a roman bridge, wash house and amphitheatre. We were welcome to wander the property's seven acres and to meet the donkeys which our children adored, as well as the cats and chickens. There is plenty of information to help you find these places, and the owners were always very helpful with pointers and maps.

“Panoramic Heaven in Ascoli Piceno”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a marvellous stay at Il Roccolo and were welcomed by David and Martine with warm hospitality which included on the last night a live demonstration of how to use a 'real' Pizza oven to rival the best of Pizzas Naples can offer!
The Apartment was very spacious and an ideal retreat after some long days on the road and the private outdoor garden and terrace really made us feel we were in a home away from home.
Furthermore it was a bonus to have Ascoli Piceno at the bottom of the hill to top up on food and culture as and when needed as well as being able to ascend Mount Piselli when we just wanted to commune with nature.
We certainly look forward to staying with David and Martine again and would recommend Il Roccolo as a true gem.
