Oliveto Estate

Civitanova Alta, Marche, Italy

In the Oliveto Estate, the sun greets you to start the day and sets with a cozy aperitif in the evening. Hostess Amanda emphasizes that the location of the Oliveto on the Adriatic coast is particularly beautiful because not many houses are located so that you can enjoy the sun all day long.

In general, the surroundings are beautiful, unspoilt and typically Italian: from hills to vineyards to the olive groves. If you look over the pool from one of the two villas, you can see the vastness of the Adriatic Sea, which can be reached by car in just five minutes. And on the other hand you look into the quaint village of Civitanova Alta, which was built in the 13th century.

The philosophy of the house is to enable stays that are tailored to the guests, because only in this way they can be as unique as the guests themselves. Guests can feel at home and leave their everyday cares behind - a concierge team is there to help. The wellness and culinary offer, the possibility to book as a small or large group, makes the Oliveto so special.

The property belongs to an Italian couple who come from the Marche region, lived in England for 25 years and finally moved back home. After a major renovation, the Oliveto has been available to guests since October 2018. Today the accommodation is managed by daughter Amanda, whereby she can always count on the multi-generation team - consisting of a large family and friends.

We also featured this accommodation on our blog at Five places for summer.

ArchitectureThe renovation took place in collaboration with a local architecture office and handicraft companies, which were able to combine the aesthetic standards of the host family with sustainability. In the interior design, particular care was taken to ensure that the furniture and decorative elements came from Italy and, if possible, only a short way behind. Most of the furniture was also made by local artists.

FoodAny leftovers are collected and composted if possible. Most fruits such as apricots, lemons, apples, pears or plums and the vegetables (lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, artichokes, onions, asparagus and aubergines) come from our own cultivation. This also applies to the homemade olive oil, which is supplied by 400 olive trees on the property. Amanda recommends the homemade lasagna, consisting of pasta plates and many fresh vegetables from the region around the Oliveto Estate.

The employees in the Oliveto are almost part of the family and are very grateful for their jobs because they are not only hired for one season. The hosts supported the entire Marche region by encouraging guests to get to know the region's cultural heritage even better and to visit or shop with small artists. The goal behind Oliveto is also to make the region better known and more attractive to tourists, but in a slow and sustainable way so that nature does not suffer.

EnvironmentShort delivery routes played a central role in the conversion. Today, this approach is being pursued further, in that the food comes from the immediate vicinity or from our own cultivation and that bio-waste is reused as compost. Solar systems are used for sustainable electricity generation. Villa Oliveto is an active member of the local neighborhood and is always busy strengthening and supporting the place.

Well-BeingOur own yoga studio ensures well-being, as in addition to yoga, various other courses such as Pilates can be attended. Thai and Ayurvedic massages are also offered. The offer is rounded off with its own spa area, which is also rounded off with a sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and oil shower. There is also the possibility to book a personal trainer and a sports therapist.
