Casa San Ruffino


 Contrada Montese 13 63833 Ancona − Italy

Luxury Bed & Breakfast, Casa San Ruffino’s setting is straight out of a storybook: high on a hill, surrounded by mediaeval hamlets, frozen-in-time farms and sweeping valleys, and inside at this former farmhouse made good, it’s just as magic.
All rooms at Casa San Ruffino B&B offer a king-sized bed, air-conditioning for the warmer months and full central heating for the cooler months. In the warmer months guests can enjoy a private outside seating area with stunning views of the Marche countryside and the Sibillini mountain range in the far-distance.
Casa San Ruffino is a B&B and do not have a restaurant or provide meals outside of breakfast. They supply guests with a long list of great local places to eat with directions on how to find each one. The swimming pool is officially open between May 1st and September 30th. Casa San Ruffino will always try to have the pool open before or after these dates but it will always be weather dependent. Free wifi is available.

In Italy, Marche has its own magic; few places capture this magic like Casa San Ruffino and their proprietors Claire and Ray Gorman. Marache's magic lies in a beauty, tranquility, and intimacy with nature that, almost paradoxically, and this is the magic, generates a sense of excitement and romance about living. The casa created by Ray and Claire conveys all of this, due to an intelligence and spirit of generosity that is nothing less than a precious metal for anyone who travels (I am of Italian descent and visit Italy almost yearly).

The Casa's location makes it a breeze to visit the hilltop towns, beaches, and Sibillini mountains (the hiking is wonderful as is the lake). There own story is fascinating, and explains the extra measure of enthusiasm that goes beyond their natural joy and ease at dealing with people. After a decade of working for financial institutions in the City of London, they summoned the energy and courage to open a bed and breakfast in short, to live life there way. With only four rooms, they attend to their guests in a way that is a blessed marriage between Italian civility and love of life and English attention to detail, as exemplified by the wonderful swimming pool with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside, a sophisticated heating/air conditioning system, king-sized beds whose extraordinary comfort seems to reflect and amplify the transquility of the environs, and the great directions they have printed out to reach every imaginable location from the wineries to the Armani and Prada outlets.

Montegiorgio Room
Falerone Room
Mogliano Room
Loro Piceno Room

All rooms provide private en-suite facilities including a walk-in shower. Toiletries and towels are provided.
14 year old children or older are welcome but will be expected to have their own room. Towels are provided for use by the swimming pool. A fully stocked mini-fridge is also provided in every room.
As a small business we're always looking to keep any unnecessary costs down wherever possible. If we can keep our running costs down we can keep the price of the rooms down. One of the ways that we do this is to ask guests to please turn off the air-conditioning when they are not in the room. We think this makes sense both financially and environmentally and hope that all prospective guests will be happy with this.

Travellers who want the best of central Italy are now heading for Le Marche, the third region, alongside Tuscany and Umbria, that makes up the area. The region lies on the eastern side of central Italy, between the Adriatic Sea and the high Apennine mountains and much of it remains unspoilt by the ravages of mass tourism.
The Adriatic coast has been a destination for holiday makers for decades, but few venture far from the beaches. Inland, perhaps more so than anywhere else in central Italy, you will find places where time really has stood still. Compared to its central Italian sisters, here culture comes in more easily digestible proportions but quality, is often of the very best.
If fashion is what you're after then the factory outlets of Tod's, Prada, Hugo Boss and many others are within easy reach of the house. If big name brands aren't your thing then we can always provide details on the local artisans such as shoe and handbag makers where the products really are "Made in Italy".
Whether you want to admire masterpieces of Renaissance art and architecture, trek across wild uncharted mountains or hunt out the best of the catch in a fishing port, Le Marche has enough to keep you busy for years. And you will rarely have to jostle with hoardes of other foreign tourists.

This is the only way you can know exactly what room types are available for the dates you want, and the best possible rate, because you are dealing directly with the hotel.
Bear in mind that websites set up to give an automatic answer, work with allocated quotas given by the hotel, therefore when it appears there are no rooms available for the date you want, this is not necessarily true, because they never allocate ALL the rooms to third parties.
