Building on the Italian property portfolio that has already helped owners to enjoy the luxury Italian living lifestyle, Appassionata has now brought their fourth development, Il Riposo to market. Il Riposo – ‘The Retreat’, has been handpicked and lovingly restored by Appassionata, the boutique Italian fractional ownership property business founded by Dawn Cavanagh-Hobbs and Michael Hobbs, after they fell in love with the Le Marche region of Italy over twelve years ago.

Il Riposo is located in the Ascoli Piceno province of Le Marche and situated in a medieval hamlet

This new addition to Appassionata’s truly unique property portfolio dates back to the 12th century, and boasts a private swimming pool and terraced garden, as well as 2,260 sq ft (210m2) of living space, with four double bedrooms and three bathrooms over three floors.

Italian in design, Il Riposo’s delicate styling has been brought to life through the talents of interior designer, and co-founder, Dawn Cavanagh-Hobbs. Working alongside local artisans, the restoration of Il Riposo maintains Appassionata’s vision of developing beautiful properties that combine craftsmanship, style and comfort with the luxury of Italian interiors to create a unique space for owners to escape to and enjoy time with their family and friends.

Located in the Ascoli Piceno province of Le Marche and with a total of 400 residents, Il Riposo is situated in a medieval hamlet, and is an ideal setting to explore nearby blue flag beaches and the Sibillini mountains. Investment in this luxurious property through fractional ownership offers second-homebuyers a one tenth share in the property.

Michael Hobbs, co-founder of Appassionata comments: “When people look to buy their second home, finding a luxury property that gives you the perfect balance of serenity for your annual escape – without the worry of management and upkeep for when you’re not there – can be difficult to find, but this is why fractional property ownership offers an ideal solution.

“On average, a holiday homeowner will only use their property for 40 separate nights but will pay for the entire year. We created our model to offer a true solution to holiday home purchasers who want to own the weeks they are actually going to use, without the stress of having to look after and maintain the property, giving our owners the time to connect with the environment and culture of real Italy.”

Il Riposo is available at the special price of £90,000, for a one tenth fractional share with five weeks’ residency every year. This fourth development from Appassionata builds on the success of Casa Tre Archi, Casa Giacomo and Casa Leopardi which have each sold out to 36 satisfied owners.
