Villa Rivo is a beautiful Italian villa, hidden in the serene, green landscape of Le Marche. In this breathtaking environment, the Italian-Canadian owners have renovated an authentic farmhouse and transformed it into a special and inviting place to enjoy a holiday with family or friends, to completely relax or to experience the beauty of the Italian countryside. The estate and the surroundings of Villa Rivo offer plenty of options for special experiences and is an ideal destination for cyclists, hikers, yogis and cooking and eating enthusiasts.
The villa was designed by Canadian architects James Macgillivray & Vivian Lee (LAMAS) and the interior combines Italian craftsmanship and the owners' love of Asian art and design. The white walls give the villa a spacious feel and ensure that the artworks steal the show. A unique feature is the 45 m² yoga studio that can comfortably accommodate up to 12 people and opens onto a large terrace with panoramic views of the rolling hills. Yoga lessons can be organised in cooperation with the owners of Villa Rivo. In the centre of the villa you will find the spacious living room with a cosy wood-burning stove and the semi-professional kitchen, which you can have filled with fresh and local products on request. You can also choose to have a private chef take care of dinner, while the guests enjoy an aperitif in the garden.
The 4 comfortable and hotel-worthy bedrooms each have indoor and outdoor lounge areas and spacious ensuite bathrooms with both a rain shower and bathtub. Two bedrooms also have an extra sofa bed, making a total of 10 people possible. The beds are all equipped with comfortable mattresses, high quality linen and various pillows.
Around Villa Rivo you will find various seating areas, such as the terrace with the long dining table and barbecue, the sunny terrace next to the yoga studio or the sunbeds around the 15-metre pool. It is also the perfect base for exploring the surrounding area. For example, you are only 20 minutes away from the Adriatic Sea and within walking distance from the idyllic medieval village of Montottone.

Villa Rivo offers an ideal location to visit Le Marche, from the Sibillini Mountains to the beautiful beaches of the Adriatic, to enjoy the most beautiful landscapes, but also the rich and beautifully preserved medieval towns. On summer evenings, the various villages of the region come alive with traditional village festivals presenting famous local dishes and old-fashioned music, activities and crafts.
Within walking distance, you will find the village of Montottone with its winding streets full of restaurants, small shops, churches and medieval architecture. From the highest point of Montottone you can see no less than 20 different hilltop villages... beautiful view guaranteed! In the vicinity of the villa there are several old towns that you can visit, such as: Macerata (52 km), a city especially known for its open-air theatre where beautiful operas are performed. Also Fermo (19,5 km), a city full of old buildings, winding streets and squares with restaurants. Because the city is located on a hill, you also have a beautiful view of the sea. Furthermore, Le Marche also offers several bustling coastal cities, such as: Civitanova Marche (38 km), Ancona (80 km) and Sirolo (71 km).
Although the nearest beach in Porto San Giorgio is only a 20-minute drive away, the owners recommend going to the Monte Conero National Park and especially to the beaches at Portonovo. The owners can also help you arrange a day on a sailboat or motorboat.
There are also many vineyards in this region to visit for a tour of the groves or a wine tasting. If you prefer nature, drive to the Monte Sibillini natural park (55 km) where you can hike, climb and cycle. There are several hiking and biking trails, hidden lakes and nice mountain hut restaurants. The villa is equipped with 8 Trek Touring + hybrid bikes.

The owners renovated the old farmhouse into a holiday home for themselves and later converted the barn, stables and horse stable of the farm into Villa Rivo, as a place to receive people from all over the world and offer them unique experiences in one of the most charming and undiscovered regions of Italy. It is important to note that the owners are not usually in the neighbouring house during the summer months and the swimming pool is always reserved for guests who book Villa Rivo.
