Come stay in our charming eco property on an Italian organic farm. Let us spoil you in one of our double bedrooms or enjoy your independence in our self-catering apartments. Perfect for touring Northern Le Marche, horse riding, walking or relaxing by the pool, enjoying a sweeping view of the landscape.
Our charming country house lies in a 185-acre organic farm in sight of Urbino nestling in a landscape of gentle, rolling hills, rich in wild flora and fauna. Always keeping in mind the philosophy that "one should tread lightly on the earth" we grow organically our own wheat, fruits and vegetables and raise our cattle, pigs and poultry with 100% natural feed; from our fresh organic produce we make our own bread and pasta, jams, wine and traditional home cooking. In Autumn we also have truffles from our woods. The home is fitted with solar collectors, the heating system is run using renewable energy and we produce 100% of the electricity that we use through photovoltaic panels. Our first priority is the comfort of our guests. This is the perfect location for exploring the delights of Central Italy and many famous Renaissance towns.
Discover unspoilt Le Marche region "Italy's best kept secret". Renaissance towns, art, breathtaking clinging fortresses, ceramics, handicraft, gorgeous organic food, doc wines. You'll be able to discover all of this away from the crowds! The Locanda is the perfect starting point for walks and treks: it stands just a few miles away from beautiful Riserva Naturale Gola del Furlo (Furlo Gorge) with its flora and fauna (including wolves and some pairs of golden eagles), and from Parco del Sasso Simone and Simoncello with its distinctive geological formations. The beaches and rocky coastlines of Parco del Monte San Bartolo and Conero represent an interesting option compared to the typical Adriatic sandy beaches. The Grotte di Frasassi (Frasassi Caves), among the biggest in Europe, include a chamber which is large enough to hold Milan cathedral.
