Casale Amati

La Marchesa

Discover the charm of an ancient and noble residence

Country-chic atmospheres and a relaxed elegance characterize this comfortable historic farmhouse, where the Marchesa Eloisa Franchina Ingolotti, great-grandmother of the current owners, used to go during the summer.

It is a residence about 110 square meters, comfortably hosting up to six people.

The apartment is divided into two large double bedrooms, a bedroom with two single beds, a lovely marble bathroom with a shower, a large kitchen equipped with a fireplace, an antique marble sink, a large living room with a walnut table dating back to the Eighteenth Century and a beautiful wooden stove. All wrapped up in a relaxed, convivial charming atmosphere.

Moreover, one of the bedrooms hides a secret story, since for three nights it hosted an Italian national hero Giuseppe Mazzini (1805-1872) during his getaway from the authorities of the time who had condemned him for his political ideas.

The homes furnishing, authentic and harmonious, brings together vintage furniture, objects with a retro taste and the typical materials of the territory (marble, slate, old terracotta and wood) with all the innovations intended to make the living room a pleasant space: we provide a TV, oven, microwave, washing machine, internet connection and so on.

The outdoor areas are all designed to give complete serenity. The large garden terrace, typical of the Liguria region, is equipped with a large marble table, chairs, deckchairs and a barbecue to enjoy a good lunch with friends, surrounded by hazelnut, persimmon, pear and apple trees, with walnuts, figs and, of course, olive trees too.

Once you come back from the beach, a warm outdoor shower awaits you to reinvigorate your mind in the green oasis.

A delightful touch is the lovely tank with river fish, making use of the ancient tanks used in the olive oil production.

A parking space is also available with the possibility to park in the public parking garage a few meters from Casale Amati. The Casale has its own separate access, you just need to pass through the garden.

NOTE: to enjoy a larger and wider space, La Marchesa can be rented with the supplement of Le Macine apartment, arranged on the same floor, plus Sala del Torchio, at the ground floor together with the lovely Il Frantoio, an independent house inside the same park.

Un prezioso angolo di eleganza.
Abbiamo alloggiato nel Casale per il ponte del 1 maggio, con altre due famiglie, prendendo 2 delle 3 strutture contigue che formano il Casale. Ogni struttura è definita da uno stile proprio e molto curato nei dettagli, lasciando inalterate le suggestioni di quando era la residenza estiva dei proprietari.
Federica, la proprietara, vi conquesterà immediatamente per la sua gentilezza e la passione che trasmette nel racconto sulle origini della struttura. Un perfetto rifugio se il desiderio è quello di vivere autenticamente e senza eccessi, la zona già di per se stessa è meravigliosa.
Grazie di tutto!!

Simply Perfect
A perfect place to stay in with your family and/or friends. From the outside the old olive-oil mill may not look like much but inside you realize that you have stepped into a castle. It is a grand old place with parts of the mill still showing it one of the two great kitchens. There are plenty of rooms to choose from, the upper rooms with AC and down below cool enough for a hot summer. The garden is very pretty, with gold-fish in the dam, plenty of room to relax. The house is situated in the foothills of the mountains, but not far from the sea. There is plenty to do in the area and I cannot enough stress that you need to see this place and realize you will want to come back. The hostess is very pleasant and helpful, a very nice encounter.

L’endroit où nous sentons chez nous.
Il Casale Amati est devenu notre lieu de référence en Italie que nous fréquentons beaucoup. Son emplacement entre mer et petite montagne, le bon goût de la restauration de cet ancien pressoir ,le calme, les ressources de la région font que nous nous sentons chez nous ! et si l’on ajoute la charmante hospitalité des propriétaires…..nous n’avons pas les mots pour continuer.

Une magnifique maison.
Nous avons passé un week end de 4 jours en famille dans cette superbe maison. Nous avons tous été bluffés de la beauté de cet endroit et de la place que nous avions. Les photos sont conformes à la réalisté, c’est tout aussi atypique, original ! Ortonovo est un petit village paisible ou le calme est au rendez-vous. Très agréable pour se reposer après une journée très occupée au 5 terres par exemple ! Proche de la mer en voiture, je conseille à tout le monde de découvrir cet endroit !

Very cool place- takes you back in time!
Great place, the grounds alone should make you want to stay here! Federica was a fabulous host! My kids didn’t want to leave. Easy access to Tuscan hill towns or the 5 Terre!

Just Excellent, historical and authentic.
We stayed in this wonderful old olive mill several days together with our family including 3 kids. So we had both flats on the 1st floor which are connected by a door. So it was just one big flat then with 2 bathrooms, two kitchens and 6 bedrooms in total. We used just 5 bedrooms. The whole house is nicely decorated with old furniture/antique furniture in good condition besides modern aspects, especially wifi, TV with obviously every available channel of the world, and for sure a well equipped kitchen including dishwasher. Everything was clean and the whole house and every room is very cosy. We didn’t use the very big garden behind the house due to the bad weather we had in November. But in summer it must just be wonderful to have a BBQ on the terrace. The service is also very good. The owner explained us everything regarding the old house and how the oil was produced. There are many historical parts of the old oil production system still visible. That makes this house and especially the flat “LA Macine” a very particular and authentic place. We got also many recommendations for what we can do and visit around. Thanks for the amazing stay and your support in our situation. Hope we come back one day.

Awesome, unique adventure!
Wonderful host, wonderful unique accommodations! The apartment had all the amenities we need plus some extra and it was so unique and charming. It was fun stepping back in history. We will always treasure our stay here. It was very nicely decorated and the beds were very comfortable. The grounds were also very nice. We highly recommend this rental!

Unforgettable birthday party in La Marchesa!
We were quite a big party with 6 adults who came to celebrate my birthday in La Marchesa. Such a beautiful house with a lot of space! Large bedrooms, kitchen and not least the wonderful barbecue garden. The house has a working Wifi which for us was important. From Ortonovo it is easy and close to reach Cinque Terre, La Specia, Pisa and Via Reggio. One day we went out to Tuscany, eat lunch in the wonderful Vignamaggio (birthday house of Mona Lisa) and spend some hours in Florence. After intense excursions coming back to the quiet place and bird songs in La Marchesa, felt very luxurious. Highly recommended accommodation. We are coming back!
