Casa Olivi

Nestled into the rolling hills of the Marches and with panoramic views of the sea, Casa Olivi is located close to the medieval town of Treia. The 300 year old farmhouse – partly destroyed by a fire in 1995 – was renovated over four years and converted into an exclusive holiday house. Now old meets new – sometimes merging, sometimes contrasting. The listed protective outer shell has been largely maintained and the roof has been replaced in a traditional way. But the new intermediate floors and interior walls have been plastered brilliantly white. Thus they reflect the light and the rooms appear bright and friendly while retaining the original small windows. The southern part of the house comprises the living room with a fireplace as well as four bedrooms in the two floors above. In the northern part of the building, the area destroyed by the fire, the kitchen and dining hall are located. Inserted in this open room that extends from the ground floor to the roof are three cubes containing entrance gallery, stairs and study room. Outside, the infinity pool forms a delightful contrast to the old walls of the house.

What to do

Within one hour, you can reach Monte Conero with its crystal-clear water and white sandy beaches. In Numana you can hire on a private boat and spend the day on the seas. You can also reach the Monte Sibillini within an hour. The national park with mountains of up to 2,479 meters is ideal for hikers and mountain bikers. Horse rides are only 2 km away from Casa Olivi. An experienced yoga-teacher can be booked to visit the holiday home. You can also rent our off-road vehicle (Defender).
Culinary delights: We organize Truffles hunts in Acqualagna or Cagli. Our cook Gianna will cook your favorite dishes in our local cuisine. Our chef Samuele can introduce you to the art of cheese making. On request, we can organize a dinner with a Michelin star chief. We can also organize wine tastings on request. In the in-house wine cellar, you will find an excellent selection of wines. Not far from Casa Olivi you can visit various wineries, restaurants and farms belonging to the Slow Food movement.

Why we like this house

    Die Casa Olivi ist ein grossartiger Ort mit sehr viel Geschmack rundum. Das reduzierte Interieur in den schönen alten Mauern, passt sehr gut. Die Lage auf dem Hügel ist herrlich. Wir haben das Haus bereits das zweite Mal genossen. Diesmal mit der ganzen Familie. Schade, dass der Willkommensgruss nicht mehr aus frischen Früchten, Brot, etwas Fleisch und Käse besteht! Diese Mal gab`s nur Guetzli, Pasta & Co. Das bringt wenig, wenn man nach einer langen Anfahrt endlich ankommt.

    Habe die Villa CASA OLIVI selber persönlich im Herbst besichtigt. Wirklich gelungen! Sieht so aus, wie auf den Fotos!
