Full description:

The Augustinian monastery consists of three main structures: the abbey, adjoining annex to the east side, and the rectory positioned in the corner at a diagonal to the other two structures. The monastery exudes a formal dignity typical of a complex that was once at the centre of an era of great change, featuring fine, sculpted decorations and capitals.

The Abbey, from its Romanesque design to the great hall has a rectangular form of 11m x 18m and terminates in three semicircular apses, the largest being the central ones.

The Augustinian monastic complex includes the abbey, measuring approx 200m2. Whilst not immediately habitable, various works have been carried out. The buildings have new roofs and static consolidations works have been done to comply with seismic regulations as required by the Marche Region. Pointing works to the exterior masonry have been completed, along with a survey of the interior plaster and other restoration works. The property can therefore be considered in a shell state.

Further restorations works are required to render the monastery habitable. Approved proposed works include the plumbing, electrics, windows, middle floor of the annex and the consolidation of the vaulted ceilings between the ground floor and the first floor of the rectory. The entire plot of 5000m2 has protected status and is therefore subject to regional supervision in terms of restoration and use. This also means that financial incentives are available to aid the restoration.

The Augustinian Monastery Complex has an approved restoration project.

Permissions have been approved to allow for the transformation of the rectory and annex into three habitable units.

The regional authority has already carried out several inspections and approved the interventions so far performed.


The Augustinian Monastery Complex includes approx. 3 hectares of land, part of which is classified as agricultural and part protected landscape. The lands surrounding the monastery form part of a larger estate.


The Augustinian Monastery Complex is situated on the hills around Cingoli, in Bachero, in the hamlet of Strada, (province of Macerata). The distance to the sea is just over 30 km, Cingoli approx. 3km. The nearest amenities are less than 3km away in the hamlet of Strada and can be reached on foot. The main road to Jesi can be accessed by a short gravel lane on which the property has right of way.

About Paradise Possible, Le Marche

Our History
"It was 10 winters ago, December 1998. I still remember the conference room at Confindustria Marche. It was absolutely packed. We knew that we were going to present something that would turn Territory Marketing on its head. Giuliano and I were at the conference table, wondering whether the message would get through...

Looking back, it certainly did get through, and spread throughout the world faster than we could have imagined, probably more so than amongst the people in that room and across the region itself. We had taken on the mission to make Le Marche famous and "bring the world to Le Marche", and we did it.

Since then, so many people from all over the world have relied on Paradise Possible to find their own paradise in the Marche countryside, or special places to spend their holiday. Many have settled and reinvented their life over here, with the help of our Network, and many more have been visiting the region just to follow their passions, with Paradise Possible as their guide."

From Happy 10th Anniversary Paradise Possible! by Grazia Grazi

Paradise Possible today
Originally conceived as a pioneering territory-marketing website to launch undiscovered regions around the world, Paradise Possible is today the premier online guide to the best of Le Marche - Italy, covering Country Property,Travel & Accommodation, Food & Wine.

The site's history in a nutshell
From its first conception back in 1996 to what it is now, the site has undergone several changes in its appearance and functionality, whilst new applications have been added with each new release. Here are the milestones of the site's history:

December 1998 – Paradise Possible goes live with its first interactive application (Marche Country Homes), designed to help visitors find their own paradise in the Marche countryside, coupled with a first introduction to the region (Introducing Le Marche).

February 2002 – Release 2 is launched, featuring a new section dedicated to Travel & Accommodation (Traveller’s Paradise) and a new territory database architecture, as part of a joint marketing initiative with the Marche Regional Authority. Two new applications (Passions & Places and Where to Stay) allow visitors to build their own itineraries and book accommodation around them, on the basis of their passions and personal preferences.

April 2005 – A fourth application dedicated to food lovers (Marche Food & Wine) is launched at La Dolce Vita 2005, London. The new section features an interactive guide to the best local products and producers, with an online shopping facility ranging over 120 prodotti tipici for home delivery across Europe (The Shop).

May 2009 – Here comes Release 3, totally redesigned and on a new web platform. Easier to navigate from any point to any point and across applications, the new release offers new search, selection and save facilities, helping visitors to make each session more productive and retain search criteria and results for subsequent visits. On the editorial side, four Magazines - one for each section - provide dedicated articles and news content, whilst a totally made-over Food & Wine Shop comes packed with information about each product on sale, for the benefit of the discerning and health-conscious consumer.
