이탈리아의 한적한 전원에 위치한 농가를 새로운 게스트하우스로
리뉴얼한 프로젝트입니다. 300년 이상된 오래된 공간에서 나오는 시간적 향기는
이곳 자연풍경과 어우러지며 도시생활의 지친 심신을 달래주기 충분합니다.
이러한 공간적 향기는 이탈리아의 전통적인 건축양식을 바탕으로 현대적인 모던함이 더해져
만들어 내고 있습니다. 아마도 폐가 수준의 농가를 리노베이션하면서 건축가의 진중한 생각이
잘 반영되어 이와같은 결과물을 만들어 내지 않았나 싶습니다.
11명의 손님의 투숙을 위한 5개의 스위트룸, 두개의 리빙스페이스, 한개의 주방과 식당으로 구성된
내부공간은 야외에 펼쳐진 수영장과 더불어 이곳을 이용하는 손님들에게 편안한 휴식공간을 제공합니다.
아마 등나무 아래 펼쳐진 데크에서 바라다 보는 올리브 나무 풍경은
손님들에게 주는 보너스가 아닐까요?

welcome Beyond is our ‘hand-picked paradise’ for travelling; a travel site with a perspective in jet-set travelling offering one-of-a-kind destinations. Welcome Beyond shares the philosophy that where you stay is as vital to the experience as what you see and do – and we couldn’t agree with them more. This time, Yatzer’s hand-picked selection is a restored 300 years old farm house located in Treia, a town in the province of Macerata in the central Marche, Italy.
Le Marche Villa is conveniently located 12 kilometers from Treia, and was restored in 2006 by the Caviano-based studio Wespi de Meuron Architekten. Located amidst hills of olive groves, fruit plantations and sunflower fields, the Le Marche Villa offers
panoramic landscape views all the way to the Adriatic coastline.
Offering a unique experience which will cleanse your body and soul, this
holiday house seems like the ideal retreat for anyone who wants to
enjoy nature and take time off from their busy city life. Of course
there’s plenty to do, as surrounding villages have a lot to offer
cultural-wise – from museums and old churches to theaters and the long
tradition and history of the Italian countryside. But if you want to
enjoy this luxury villa and make the most of what it has to offer, you
can treat yourself to some de rigueur sunbathing, swimming in the pool
or indulge yourself in succulent Italian flavors by participating in
cooking classes provided at the property by a local chef. Moreover, you
can enjoy olive oil tasting from regional olive trees, as well as wine
tasting as two sommeliers are available to organize an unforgettable
experience for you and your guests.
But let’s take a closer look at the property – the 300 years old farmhouse was in ruins when it was discovered by its current owners in 2005. After one year of trying to find the right architects to assign the restoration of the project to, the owners commissioned Caviano-based studio Wespi de Meuron Architekten in 2006. After four years of hard work and carefully selected materials the restoration of the house was completed in 2010 resulting in a contemporary dwelling and holiday house, with attached guest house and pool. The farmhouse combines elements from tradition and modernity all wrapped up in Italian finesse. This beautiful 3,348 square foot farmhouse has three storeys and can accommodate 11 guests in five en suite bedrooms. The renovation of Le Marche Villa comprises traditional elements and new interventions either by contrasting materials and textures or by assimilating old and new elements. For instance, some walls are covered with white plaster, and the old wooden floors have been replaced with hard cement screed flooring in white. This assists in reflecting the light off of the surfaces which gives a feeling of largeness, openness and airiness.
All in all, the property offers four double bedrooms, one twin bedroom, five en suite bathrooms, one kitchen, two living areas, one dining area, three other rooms, a fitness room, and the stunning infinity swimming pool. Its interior décor follows a minimalist approach and includes many designer pieces such as Phillipe Starck bathrooms and a Bose system on the terrace, as well as many other designer pieces. Situated in a panoramic position with a 360 degrees view of the landscape, surrounded with olive trees, Le Marche Villa has only the very best to offer for a relaxing holiday escape into the Italian countryside.
