The property is located in Palazzo Evangelista, an elegant historic building from the 1700s situated in the center of Fermo. Having always been inhabited by the counts Bernetti Evangelista, the palace is surrounded by the rich historical and social background of the city and the neighbour villages also framed by the Sibillini hills and the Adriatico seaside. Palazzo Evangelista is situated in the eastern part of Fermo, right beneath Piazza del Popolo and in front of Centro Congressi San Martino, in the namesake square.
We can enter the B&B Antica Biblioteca (Ancient Library) from the small door in Via Mameli: it feels like going back in time 200 years. The big kitchen with the ancient fireplace, the Arola where they used to make meals for the family, welcomes you for breakfast. The Library, which gathers books from four generations, is the ideal place to relax while reading or talking.
There are three rooms: Cameretta, Camera dello studiolo e Camera della Vasca.
Cameretta: this room, which was recently renovated while keeping the authentic floors in earthenware tiles and the beautiful vault ceiling, will welcome you with the comfort and beauty of the bed that still has the authentic ancient headboard. Even though it is pretty small, the beauty and peacefulness of the bedroom will surprise you!
Camera dello Studiolo: Count Emilio used to sleep in this bedroom. He loved this room for its brightness given by the two windows overlooked on the square. He was the first born, he had an eclectic soul and loved drawing and modelling statues. The count used to stay in this room when he was back from Rome, where he worked in Vaticano as an architect. In the antechamber there is a sofa bed which gives the option for small families to stay together but in separate rooms…”.
Finally, Camera della Vasca: The little and sweet count Caterina used to stay in this bedroom, where she spent her juvenile years, before entering the cloister of the Clarisse in Fermo. She loved playing instruments and she used to practice in this bedroom. The room has a big bathroom which contains an ancient bathtub with a neoclassical style from the second half of 1700 carved from a marble stone.
