Casa Liozzi is a beautiful, historic Italian townhouse set in the rolling foothills of the Macerata countryside. Over the last 14 years a careful restoration of the property has taken place to bring us to where we are today, modern luxury and medieval charm. The townhouse is set over 4 floors. At the south end of the house is the balcony, which gives an unbroken 180o panorama of the Marchese countryside, the Adriatic sea to the east and the Sibillini mountains to the west.
“Wow, wow, wow! We hit the Airbnb jackpot with Jon’s place!!! From the moment we booked, Jon was so helpful and friendly. We arrived quite late and it was easy to find the house in the beautiful village. Once we went inside, we were absolutely blown away by how amazing the place is, and that was before we saw the view from the terrace! Our only regret is that we didn’t stay for longer, this has definitely been the most amazing Airbnb we have stayed in. We will be back!”

“It's hard to know where to begin in reviewing our stay at this incredible home, in this magical hilltop village hosted by such genuinely lovely people. The photographs and description raised our expectations but I can honestly say that the reality is even better. Our dealings with Sharon before we arrived gave us a sense of the warm person that she is and her artistic, caring personality is evident in 1001 subtle details throughout the home. We drove up the winding road to Monte San Martino, stopping frequently to stare in wonder at the patchwork quilt-like hills of Le Marche stretching out below us, backed by the towering, ragged Sibillini peaks. We had arranged to meet Sharon's agent, Mike, in the historic piazza that would become a scene of so many fond memories over the coming days. He turned out to be a truly lovely guy who couldn't do enough to make us welcome and advise us on where to go and what to see in this unspoilt region of fascinating hilltop towns, mouth watering foods and first rate local wines. This information was augmented by a really useful house-book at the property and contact from Sharon telling us about the various markets that take place on a daily basis in the various villages and towns. We went to a different place every day and still didn't come close to seeing even a small part of what was available. But let me talk about the house! I can quite honestly say that this is the most wonderful place I've ever had the pleasure to stay in. It ticks absolutely all of the boxes. The house itself is vast but each room has been decorated with taste and character in sympathy with the historic nature of the place. There are a variety of communal areas where we could gather together or spend time alone with a book or online - dining room, kitchen, several living rooms, on the terrace, on the lower outdoor barbecue area or by the pool. There is every modern convenience - from good hot showers and filter water on tap to a good washing machine and a dryer. We usually frequented the downstairs living area with it's outside balcony looking, from an eagle's nest-like perspective, across an impossibly beautiful landscape where one often found oneself looking down on the swifts and swallows that add to the sense of nature that surrounds this place. Sharon has an eclectic music collection that was perfect for creating a relaxing mood. The pool is a proper length and depth where you can actually get a good swim as well as cooling down from the sun. The locals were so welcoming. By the time we left we felt like we were saying goodbye to old friends in the two bars - one with a super restaurant as well - and supermarket that provide all you need locally. We can't wait to return.”
