If you are looking for a spectacular gardened house in a medieval castle, look no further, you have found it, it’s Casale della Lavanda.
In the Middle Ages, the hamlet of Cerreto was the smallest commune in the state of Fermo. The peculiarity of its historic centre is that it was developed on the side of a valley, rather than on the top of a mountain; unusual in this part of Marche. The terraced buildings, built along the edge of the walls, reinforced the defensive function of the inner town, which give it the appearance of being more of a fortified agricultural hamlet than a castle. In its church of Santa Maria, still intact, there is a remarkable series of frescoes dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries.
Casale della Lavanda is a rare jewel of a home, with a delightful garden, located inside a small village, a Borg, which has the form of a castle, preserving its original structure and reminding us more of a typical Tuscan village.
Casale della Lavanda has kept its structure intact over time. The exterior walls date back to 1100, while the interiors, preserved with care and dedication, present a pleasant surprise: a bright and harmonious environment, with walls adorned with ceramic collections and country artefacts that give the house a warm and hospitable feeling.
