(The Hornbeam and the Flowering Ash)
S. Pietro is a hamlet in a panoramic position overlooking Ascoli Piceno and the Tronto valley. It is ten minutes drive to the provincial capital Ascoli Piceno and less than half hour to the sea at San Benedetto del Tronto and the Riviera delle Palme. S. Pietro di Lisciano lies under the Colle San Marco on a green plateau which serves as a splendid balcony on the Piceno. There are tourists facilities such as tennis courts and pleasant walks in the woods etc.
The house too offers splendid views from its terraces. The whole town of Ascoli Piceno is spread out below your feet and the view is extended down the Tronto valley as far as the Adriatic Sea. The surrounding mountains serve as a perfect backdrop.
B&B accommodation is available for up to 6 people. (2 double bedrooms and a bedroom with bunk beds).
The lounge is particularly striking having been created from the old stalls and preserving the original vaulted stone ceiling. Breakfast can be served in the lounge or on the terrace.
The Self catering apartment is on the top floor.
As the house is built into the hillside the apartment is still entered from ground level. The car can be taken right up to the apartment. There is a spacious terrace at the rear which forms the roof in the top photo. There is a beautiful shaded patio in front of the apartment for outdoor dining.
The agriturismo's property at the rear of the house is almost entirely woodland with mostly hornbeam and flowering ash (hence the name of the Agriturismo), but chestnut and other varieties of trees are also found. A short walk brings one to the swimming pool which is available to guests. It has been made using particular materials of the area (travertine stone and chestnut wood). The pool area is beautifully finished with a spacious paved solarium and includes changing room, toilets, showers and again stunning views. A perfect setting to relax in the Italian sunshine.
The wooded area around the pool offers shady woodland walks which are also suitable for the elderly and children. There are picnic areas with table and seating and a viewing platform at the highest point of the property. From this viewpoint you can see the entire Tronto valley as far as the sea and the whole town of Ascoli Piceno immediately below you. Part of the woods can be illuminated at night with a particularly romantic atmosphere.
