On the edge of a village in pleasingly pastoral Le Marche, Casa Moderna is a five-bedroom farmhouse where contemporary comforts and original features come together in minimalist harmony. No thick-walled, dimly lit rusticity here, however. Bare-stone walls, cool, polished floors and boldly beamed ceilings are the tastefully traditional backdrop for a state-of-the-art stainless-steel kitchen and atrium-like, open-plan dining space. Neutrally hued bedrooms – all with elegant ensuite bathrooms – are calmly cocoon-like. Outdoors, an alfresco dining area with a teppanyaki grill has stone-arch-framed vineyard views, opening onto a soirée-worthy, sunlounger-lined deck with an impressive infinity pool. The manicured grounds are bordered by olive trees, with the vine-dotted hills beyond. It’s a space that invites easy conviviality, but – when more structured entertainment is called for – a concierge can advise, and wine tasting, mozzarella-making or cookery classes can be arranged.
