This luxury villa in the beautiful Marche region of Italy offers exclusive use of the house and its grounds. Accommodating a maximum of 14 guests, the villa is perfect for a large family or groups of friends.
If your idea of a perfect holiday, romantic wedding or special event is in a beautiful authentic Italian home, surrounded by immaculate gardens, large luxurious swimming pool and stunning views of the unspoiled Marche countryside, then Villa Prati could be the ideal place for you.
Villa Prati was bought by an Anglo-Italian couple in 1990 when they decided to move to Italy from the UK and discovered this enchanting region in Italy. From an old farmhouse it has gradually been transformed into a stunning villa, offering stylish and sophisticated accommodation. The owners have lived in this house for 20 years: it is in fact evident that it has not been designed for rental but with the true “home” concept in mind and it is now available to the discerning traveler who will appreciate its quality and value.
This wonderful villa is managed by their eldest daughter and her fiance who, having a 10-year experience in managing holiday homes and in wedding planning, will make sure that your holiday will be perfect.
With panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, Villa Prati provides a perfect retreat from your busy life. Whether you want to relax in a hammock, or have a swim in the pool, your every comfort will be catered for.
Although you will find it very difficult to leave the property during your stay, Le Marche region offers a range of activities which we are more than happy to arrange for you. We can arrange tailor-made vacations to suit your needs so whether your passion lies in yoga, cycling, hiking, cooking, health and fitness we will liaise with you and arrange activities and tours to meet your needs and requirements. To find out more about the activities offered please visit Le Marche page.
We have recently started to organise weddings at Villa Prati and it has proved to be an absolute success, so if you are interested in having a romantic wedding in a villa in Italy then please visit our weddings and events page or contact us and we will be happy to provide you with more details.
