WHO WE ARE - The Palazzo

Palazzo Fassitelli is situated directly on the main square in the medieval village of Cossignano, Marches, ITALY. This charming, tranquil hamlet is off the main tourist routes. Located high on the hillside, 400 metres above sea level, it offers wonderful panoramic views of Gran Sasso (Abruzzi) and the Sibylline mountains, across to the Adriatic Sea, just 15 minutes drive away. Visitors can savour authentic Italian life here. A variety of excursions can be undertaken to enjoy the area's rich culture (Ascoli Piceno, Offida,Fermo etc.), the picturesque countryside of the Sibylline national parks and the nearby Adriatic Sea. Palazzo Fassitelli with its old stonewalls and vaulted ceilings was formerly the residence of the Italian nobility. The accommodation consists of a spacious living-room with an open fireplace and frescoed ceiling (40 m2), 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen.

The property now belongs to the Massi family, who run a small wine-cellar nearby offering organically produced wines ( www.agrifiorano.it)
