The origin of the villa "Malatesta" goes back to 1485 when Malatesta family from Rimini ruled over the land. It's referred as "Malatesta Villa" in some documents listing the goods of this old linage from Romagna. Built as a place for holidays in the countryside, this great house was placed at the top of a hill called until today "Malatesta" in geographic maps. Visitors of this welcoming house did not stop coming, thug, after the Malatestas were expelled in early 1500's. In fact, until a few decades ago the place was chosen uninterruptedly by many families to repose in the peaceful valley of the Marchs. After being abandoned for a few time, Malatesta recovers the original concept of the property to satisfy the requirements of current travellers.
Malatesta Maison is the result of an accurate restoration carried out according to bioarchitectural principles, pointing at preservating integrally the original aspect of the 15th century building and keeping it alive respecting and promoting an optimal relationship between landscape and architecture.
Malatesta Maison is above all a place to leave behind urban noise and concerns. In the middle of Marchigian countryside it's both easy to get at and perfect to enjoy the solitude in a region still free from massive tourism.
Malatesta Maison is a complex of three houses. In the main one there are common spaces, some rooms for hosts and the owners' residence, who have turned this place into their home. The other two include the rest of the rooms, a small spa and a multifunctional hall. Outside there's a wide garden with several ilexes under whose shade you can lay down and sit down to talk, read or simply get relaxed.
Malatesta has six rooms. Different sizes and unique design pieces single out each room. In the construction of every ambient, natural elements such as wood and linen were used along with concrete structures, putting together traditional aspects of decoration with modern design. Each piece of furniture, from small clocks to confortable chairs, from lamps to coat-hangers),were picked specially by the owners in their travels abroad and in the secret italian markets in order to build a space that both triggers curiosity and meets the highest standards. Each room has a complete private bathroom, pure linen bedsheets and wi-fi.
The Maison puts at our host's disposal a small space dedicated to welfare and personal relax. Our passengers will be able to spend pleasant hours profiting form the sauna, hammam and the little pool.
