Villa Centofinestre is part of a 300 hectar agricultural estate surrounded by the beautiful hills of the Marches. It was built around the early 1700 as the country residence of the Accorretti family. The property was designed by the architect Pietro Ghinelli; who was a scholar of the Van Wittel ( Van Vitelli) school. The elegance and simplicity of this villa is highlighted by its neo classic architecture and is a perfect example of the attic style. The frescoed ceilings include vistas of the surrounding landscape. The decoration of the walls are reminiscent of the neoclassicism of scenes that were found in the excavations of Pompei at the time. The characteristic of the scenery of the villa which is depicted in the frescoes and reflected in the garden theatre as well as the park, is the playfulness from which the villa derives its original name 'Casino di Delizie' (House of Joyfulness). The vast park is divided into the garden theatre surrounded by cypress trees, the terraced Italian gardens, the pools, and romantic paths leading to areas of play. Moreover, the park also includes a hunting lodge, gazebos, porches, tea rooms, greenhouses, bushes enhanced by kiosks and marble statues. All in the purest Arcadian style. After more than fifty years of state of abandon, Marquess Antonella Rangoni Machiavelli, has recently restored the whole complex to its ancient splendour. The property comprises also the stables, which can be converted into further 22 rooms, and 18 cottages scattered on the entire property.
