Family Summer holiday home.
Unconventional, unusual and stylish house.
Lots of space for everyone to enjoy.
Convenient location for the beach, the mountains and the historic towns.
Villino de Santi was built in 1901 by Vincenzo de Santi, my great-grand father. He chose a northern European style which was fashionable at the time. It is quite different from any other building in the area and this makes it look a bit like a folly.
The Villino was intended as a family Summer house and it has been used as such ever since it was built. My children are the fifth generation in our family that spends their Summer holidays here.
The Villino de Santi is a well loved house. It is not high tech, it is not luxurious, but it exudes oodles of charm and character. After 110 years it is now ready to extend its warm welcome to new guests and friends who will thus help ensure that it will continue to be a great container of happy moments to share with loved ones.
5 Double/twin bedrooms, three bathrooms, sitting room, dining room and kitchen are available to guests. The house is surrounded by a large garden.

Quiet surroundings, yet minutes from the motorway entrance which makes it an ideal location to explore the surrounding area and historic towns.
The closest beach and shopping center are 10 minutes away.
It is advisable to have use of a car.
Alternatively, guests may rent bicycles to get around.
We spent almost two weeks in July 2014 in Villino di Santi (two families with children, 8 people in total). House is indeed beatiful and charming as it is presented in pictures. There is plenty of space for everyone and it was exactly what we were looking for when searching for perfect holidays.
If you want sunbathing and swimming in a commercial area - Alba Adriatica can be reached in notime. If you do not prefer crowdy and commercial beaches - go to Colonia Spiaggia (as we used to).
Being on a beach is of course only part of the story - we were swimming only few hours per day. As the kitchen and dining room is fully equipped (even moka pots!) preparing meals and dining is easy. Also eating breafast outside (in the garden) was nice too.
We especially loved sitting room on the 1st floor where we have played games or just read books - it is quite fascinating if you see 4 adults reading books sitting by each other (smile).
We have performed few small escapades to Alba Adriatica, Tortoreto. In classic old town Tortoreto there is a very nice restaurant called Anchise (Pizzeria e Cuccina) - fully booked after 8pm. Perfecto!
Villino di Santi was like we expected it to be. Quiet, comfortable, charming. Larger that it appear on pictures. Ideal place to rest.

We are very obliged for the courtesy of owners, they was s so kind to us.
The house is warn and very convenient. It is just it looks at pictures. The only thing it can only feel is home with a family history that gives a special charm.

Artist through and through and a big fan of the city I live in. Am a British national but have lived and travelled in many parts of the world. I still love to dapple with paint, do life drawing and am working to finish a masters in Art Therapy (A.T.I) . Mother of three wonderful individuals has turned me into an enthusiastic cook and listening to music while in the kitchen relaxes me and gets me the best results.
The eternal city is a daily feast for my eyes and I'm enthusiastic to share it all and make it an experience that you'll want to repeat.
