Our Story & Culture
When Paolo and Veronica returned home from their vacation at Gatto sulla Finestra in Jesi in the Marche region, they immediately realized how painful it could be to return to the city, to daily life, to hard work, to the usual routine.
This, as you can imagine, caused in them a sense of frustration of stress that a few days ago, having set foot in Jesi, had literally abandoned them.
Long walks, happy hours in the evening, visits to museums, mountain bike excursions, that little escapade to the sea not far away, under the Conero, the tasting tour and that extra drop of wine, and finally tired but happy, the return home, to 'Gatto sulla Finestra' away from the chaos of the city to pamper themself a bit.
Veronica decided to tell Paolo that he shouldn't worry, that soon they would be able to afford another vacation together. On the other hand, an ordinary 'Gatto sulla Finestra' in a beautiful town like Jesi would have found it right ?!
In her heart Veronica knew very well that she had told a little lie for a good purpose. An happy combination between the town that hosts you and the structure that welcomes you was impossible to find elsewhere. Thinking about it, it had never happened in their life as travelers / tourists, and they had made travels!
Those stony villages, the narrow streets where you can get lost, the enveloping architectures, the historic buildings open, full of art, history and culture, the bishop's seat, the churches, the squares where the clubs look out in the evening, the kind, welcoming people, a mix that goes beyond the clamor of a waterfront whatever it is, crowded and always the same.
They both knew that that state of grace, that veil of beauty that envelops everything would remain a unique experience.
They still did not know, but after some time they would have realized that the welcome of those places had transformed them. They realized they were kinder to the people they met, more condescending, relaxed, affable, they began to think that here the places and the welcome they received were contagious, it had certainly transformed them.
What they carried inside began to resonate around, in their city, at work, in bars, they told friends and relatives not so much the splendid places they visited, but the
sensations that those places transmitted, they told the amazement in visiting the Pinacoteca, the gallery of the stuccos,
the theater, the cathedral, the museums, told of local sayings and legends, of historical characters born in Jesi,
of tastings and the food and wine specialties of the Marche region, then, with a smile on her face, Veronica told of
returning home in the evening, a well-deserved rest at the 'Gatto sulla Finestra', beautiful, welcoming, with that
comfortable, fragrant bed and that feeling of timeless living, satisfied.
