Reviews of our Restored Italian Villa

Grazie Mille! We stayed from August 4th – 11th and it seemed like 2 days. The house was amazing and we were constantly saying “this house has everything!”. Thanks for being such excellent hosts and for showing off Le Marche so well. We’ll be back! Will, Wakey, Serena, Sam, Phil & Anne

Hi! We came to Le Marche to escape the relentless Florentine heat and explore a hitherto unknown region. We brought our three children (8, 5, and 3 week old!). This was the latter’s first holiday and she’s now spent more than a quarter of her life in Regnano! Top marks for the house and swimming pool – it was just perfect! Unexpected bonuses were a couple of surprise restaurants (Le Logge and Picciolo di Rame), the countryside way of life and the humber determination of the Marchigiani to continue despite and because of the devastating earthquakes. Thanks for the great break!

What a wonderful experience I have had here at La Vecchia Scuola! I couldn’t have dreamt of a more amazing experience. From the moment my friend and I arrived there was a sense of relaxation and comfort the house gives you. The peacefulness of the Italian countryside yet the closeness of a big town makes La Vecchia Sculoa the perfect location!

This trip we visited many of the towns in the Le Marche region as well as being close enough to visit Florence and Venice. There is so much history steeped into this country that each town has its own unique story, it was incredible to experience that.

The food! Oh the delicious, ingenious, simple, beautiful food! We made sure to visit many of the recommendations given to us by Adrian and Margaret and each and every one was mouthwateringly good. The dinner at il Picciolo di Rame was my favourite. A 12 course degustation consisting of the dishes specific to the region and its 12th century setting. The chef is passionate about his ingredients and takes time to explain each dish.

I cannot begin to thank Adrian and Margaret enough for this incredible experience that we have had!

House & Amenities – 10 / 10 AMAZING!

I had a great time at La Vecchia Scuola and would love to return one day soon. Such a relaxing time at the schoolhouse, and amazing to experience such quiet Italian countryside. Highly recommended! ‎Phil Duffield

Thank you so much for your beautiful Scuola – we’ve loved it! The countryside is subliminal, the food wonderful and the weather very kind. Your advise has been fantastic: how to get around, where to eat, what to do to keep ourselves “occupied” (though you forgot to add relax and enjoy the surroundings!). Le Logge was our very favourite: staff so enthusiastic, speak English and the sons of the family not at all hard on the (female) eye! Thank you again, mille grazie – we’ve loved every minute of our stay. Your Aussie friends, Belinda and Chris. Oh, ps. the food at Le Logge was sensational too! Belinda & Chris - Australia

I have been lucky enough to have stayed at La Vecchia Scuola twice over the past few years and will go back there if I get the opportunity…It is a beautiful place to relax at and also to experience the wonderful surrounding towns with their history and of course the delicious local food and wine, art and overall culture….Just sublime!!!!!…….Wish I there there right now!!!! ‎Christine Liong

Absolutely perfect! Norman Szostak

We have been here for three months now and it has been three of the best months of our lives! The house is AMAZING, the view, the food, the people, the nearby towns… what more can we say?! Adriana and Ivana have been absolutely beautiful with us and especially our three year old and nine month old children. We have had many visitors over the time and have found it a great place to entertain as well as relax with the family (well, we much as you can with two little munchkins!). We will definitely tell all our friends to come here and enjoy this home as much as we have. Thank you.

Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful house. It was a very warm time, so we spent many hours in the swimming pool! The surroundings are beautiful and quiet We also enjoyed the suggestions provided by the house book on restaurants. Family Mees, The Netherlands

Enjoying the midsummer in a different scenery this year. Beautiful Marche and the true Italian countryside was exactly what we were looking for. The house was great, provided with all that one could ask for. Thank you for the lovely stay. Sanna, Janne, Ellen & Owen - Finland

What a wonderful, fine, ‘rich’, pleasant and foremost great place to live. We spent three fantastic weeks living in your house. Thank you for letting us! We visited the beach at Grottammare, enjoyed a wonderful lunch inGrottammare. We also visited the Frassasi Cave and can recommend the trip as well. One day we started at 9am in the Sibillini Mountains for a long walk to the top of the mountains 2170 metres – more than beautiful and worth doing. We had many lunches or dinners. The one we enjoyed the most was in Tolentino, Casa Mia. Each day having breakfat with the magnificant view is a great way to start your day!

Wonderful time, wonderful house and Le Marche a wonderful place. We enjoyed our time at the villa very much. Les & Julie - Melbourne, Australia

Thanks for the unique experience. It was most enjoyable and great to enjoy some time together. I will cherish the memory forever. Many thanks to you both. Hilary

Dear Marg and Adrian, thank you for the use of your lovely house in the most beautiful countryside we could imagine. Love Jan, Jo, Sandra & Toni

Stayed for two great weeks until yesterday with my wife Jane Crowley, brother David, sister in law Deborah, their sons David and Michael Crowley and David juniors fiancée Kasia. Loads of cycling. Mostly road but memorable mountain bike ride to and from top of mountain above Lago di Fiastre. Particularly memorable because I crashed! I hired a road bike and the two mountain bikes from Jimmy Stefoni. He was a star. Delivered and collected bikes. Fitted right pedals. Great bikes and great value. Highly recommended. His details are:, +39 339 1209974. Tom
