About Nick Rapley
I have always loved all things Italian: the climate, countryside, food, wine, language, culture, fashion, cars and even the football! As such I dreamed for many years of a home there too. In 2005 I went on holiday to Le Marche for the first time and fell in love with the area. According to the Italian Tourist Board the region is 'Italy's best kept secret' and it is easy to see why. So on an impulse I bought a house there and have never looked back. We have three beautiful daughters and they love their holidays in Treia. It only seemed right to name the house after them, the three sisters (Tre Sorelle). Our daughters are half Italian and half English so it really is true to say that I love all things Italian!

Why Nick Rapley chose Treia
Sitting just below Tuscany and Umbria, Le Marche is one of the most beautiful regions of Italy but is not as well-known as these areas, as you can see from this article in Lonely Planet https://www.lonelyplanet.com/best-in-travel/regions .The countryside is the same with rolling hills and medieval villages but without the crowds or the prices that go with them. Treia is a pretty little town nestled in between the Sibilini Mountains and the beaches of the Adriatic which means you can be as active or as lazy as you like. You can ski in the mountains in the winter or go for long hikes and mountain-bike rides in the summer. A day at the beach with fresh fish and a dry white is always nice too. In August the sferisterio, or open-air opera, is held in the amphitheatre in Macerata and makes for a spectacular evening out in this old Roman city. There is always plenty to see, do or eat!
What makes this Villa unique
The key benefit of Villa Tre Sorelle is it's setting. Treia is a beautiful, medieval village and the surrounding countryside is stunning. The house itself is set in extensive grounds with a large garden and many trees. In the summer the surrounding fields turn to a sea of yellow as the sunflowers bloom. The villa has its own private swimming pool making this the ideal place to relax and unwind. Treia is no more than an hour from Ancona airport and has excellent road links to the coast and the mountains. There is an abundance of local restaurants in the area. I Due Mori (The Two Oaks), for example, is only a five minute walk away and will give you a taste of the real Italy with superb cooking and local wines.
