About us..

Villa Owners: Daniel and Candida,  we moved from London to Le Marche in 2001 with a view to start a family and embrace a new slower paced life in order to concentrate on the things that are truly valuable to us.

We fell in love with the beautiful unspoiled countryside and the authenticity the region and its emanated people, embarked on the great restoration and building project, then opened in 2005.
We take care of the property, including the organic farm and olive trees that surrounds the Villa and live on the estate; guests can  reach us any time they may need our assistance or general holiday advice.
Further information and Le Marche guides are available locally and if you wish we will be more than happy to suggest day trips, wine tours, best beaches, local markets, where to source organic food from local producers and much more.We welcome you with our children Elettra, Achille and Atena…

  • A fantastic place to stay, well equipped and very comfortable. The views, with the mountains as a backdrop, are breath-taking. The different seating areas outside meant that these could be enjoyed at any time of day. The highlight of the holiday was a delicious celebration meal held in the party area, catered for by the owners Daniel and Candida. They were friendly and helpful throughout our stay, without being intrusive. A wonderful place for a relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings.

    Villa Pomegranate
  • We were an extended family group of 19 persons with exclusive use of the entire facility. The dream facility was the swimming pool set in such a natural environment which was enjoyed by so many of the party arriving home after having walked for many hours. Daniel and his family who are passionate about the continuing enhancement of the natural surrounds of the Villa provided a professional but discreet presence and were ever available to offer advice and support on demand. We will remember our week in Villa Pomegranate with fondness and satisfaction. Thanks Daniel.

    Couldn’t be better
  • We spent a fantastic week at Il Melograno. The house is beautifully appointed with high quality furnishings and is meticulously maintained. It is perfectly situated just 20 mins to the beach and about an hour to the mountains. The local village is 5 mins away by car with restaurants, supermarket and bars, there are also lots of other little picturesque hilltop villages within an easy 15 minute drive.  Daniel and Candida were perfect hosts, always on hand without being intrusive and their help and advice help make our stay memorable. we would have no hesitation in recommending Il Melograno and we intend returning very soon.

    Wish we could have stayed longer
  • We recently had a fabulous family holiday at villa pomegranate. The location and the villa were absolutely breath-taking. The accommodation was of the highest standard. What made the holiday extra special was the hosts, Daniel and Candida. They gave us a really warm welcome and made us feel at home. They gave us lots of information about where to visit and places to eat. There was plenty of space for the oldies to find some peace and for the kiddies to play, swim and watch the live stock. On our last night, we asked them to prepare the evening meal for us and they produced a wonderful, mouth-watering feast for both vegetarians and carnivores.I highly recommend villa pomegranate.

  • My husband and I spent a magical week at Il Melograno in July this year, celebrating our wedding with our family and friends in rolling hills, fields of sunflowers, Medieval hilltop towns and the Sibillini mountains in the distance. We knew it would be perfect for our wedding. And it was.The owners, Daniel and Candida are lovely, warm people who worked tremendously hard to ensure that we had the most amazing wedding day and week at the villa.  Il Melograno is a very special place. It is secluded, beautiful and relaxing but has plenty of options for exploring (beaches, mountains, lakes, old towns and villages). We will definitely be back!

    Perfect wedding, relaxing family holiday
  • The setting was quite magical with stunning views across to the Sibillini Mountains, the lush valleys between and the fields of Sunflowers. The accommodation was great, all rooms were ensuite, there were 3 kitchens to choose from and 2 large seating areas outside, one of which had beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. The pool area is slightly raised and again has incredible views. The owner Daniel and his wife Candida were the perfect hosts. It couldn’t have been more perfect

  • Great destination for large groups. Extended family of 15 of all ages had a great time. Plenty of space and well equipped. Excellent pool and delicious food cooked by the owners. Great location. Within easy reach of shops, restaurants and many places of interest. Beautiful surroundings.

    Fabulous Family Getaway….
  • We (5 Danish families – 10 yongsters og 10 grownups) spent the most fantastic summer holiday week at Il Melograno. The pictures of the place and its surroundings don´t lie. On the opposite! We found a very special kind of place hidden away on the top of a hill with panoramic view. There was plenty of room, hang-outs and “hiding places” for everyone. Beach is only 20 minutes drive away. But we never got to see that much, because everything we needed was all at Il Melograno!

    An original & authentic accomodation
  • We had a lovely 2 week holiday at ll Melograno. We are a family of 20 with ages ranging from 2 to 72 and all of us had a fantastic time. The villa was perfect for us and the surrounding countryside very peaceful with magnificent views especially from the pool. Candi and Daniel prepared and served a delicious meal for us on our golden wedding anniversary, it was a perfect evening and one we will all remember. Thank you

    Beautiful setting for our golden wedding
  • We spent a weekend at Villa Pomegranate celebrating our wedding with our family. It was the most perfect venue! Quiet, spacious and comfortable. The property is beautiful, as are the views. There are so many lovely spots around the villa to relax, socialise or just take in the stunning scenery. The children loved it too…so much space to explore and the pool was enjoyed by all ages! Facilities were fantastic. Everything was well maintained and clean. Daniel and Candida were so helpful and friendly. We are already planning our next visit!

    Beautiful, relaxing and a real delight!
  • A group of 16 went for a 50th birthday celebration and Villa Pomegranate was the perfect venue. You will not be disappointed when you arrive! The house, gardens and view are all brilliant. Daniel and the family were very welcoming and helpful. We will definitely go again.

    Amazing accommodation with stunning views
