the granary in le marche
Nestled among the rolling hills of Montefelcino, Le Marche, Italy lies Casa Melograno a 19th century farm granary lovingly restored to the highest degree. Where animals once sought shelter from the sun below the grain stores, the house now encompasses an array of bedrooms, designer kitchens, spacious lounges and a spectacular swimming pool set in picturesque grounds.
Situated half an hour's drive inland from the coastal town of Fano, and surrounded by small hilltop villages Casa Melograno has a 180° panorama of stunningly unspoiled Italian countryside where the view changes with each season from spring's green wheat, to a sea of summery, yellow-golden sunflowers before the picturesque snow falls in winter.
Named after the Pomegranate tree, Casa Melograno is a beautiful piece of historic Italy, brought to life for the modern world to experience.
carefully curated interiors
Here unique and rare collectables sit alongside iconic Italian designed furniture in a world where old meets new. Each piece thoughtfully chosen to present rooms of considered elegance and timeless design. You'll find a set of naval ship lockers from a New Zealand harbour replaces conventional kitchen storage and mementos of a bygone era adorn the master suite to create a harmonious home away from home.
Architecturally designed, the house takes advantage of the natural light and summer breeze which pours in through shuttered windows and doors to cool a hot summers day. In winter the huge fireplaces in both wings compliment the central heating system to keep you warm and snug. With ample parking there's room enough for the whole family and the complimentary WIFI allows you to stay just enough in touch with the outside world or office as necessary.

Picture yourself on the large outdoor terrace, bordered by trees and shrubs with just enough shade to shield your eyes to take in the view of the countryside beyond.
