  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Calcina is near Camerino , in the Marche, central Italy . is 600 meters above sea level , you can make hiking trails from our house . public transport are 6 km away. Camerino is a small college town , you can live the simple nightlife of the place.

    Not far ( about 20 km) there are the Sibillini mountains : a ' protected area where still live wild animals such as wolves, deer, wild boar , badgers weasels , porcupines , hawks, eagles and other wildlife in the wild , where you can do beautiful walks and breathtaking views. This biodiversity you can see it here in Calcina , but in the park of Sibillini can find classrooms , museums and guided tours very interesting if you want to know the nature of central Italy

    We have unlimited internet access.
    We live with hens and cats , we are free to also accommodate other animals , but we prefer that the animals are out the door of our apartment , where is space and possibility of shelter for many animals.
    i'm not smoker (in this the moment) Simona,Romeo, Dario and Dalila too! then we prefere that smoking guests go to smoke outside the house where there are many shelters for smokers.
    We prefer to be alerted least one week in advance, but we are open to last minutes host..
