Guestbook comments from the manager
'The apartment has been recently finished to the highest standard and is beautifully decorated and organised - if only our home could be that well designed! Everything you could want for a self-catering holiday is provided: One bedroom (v. comfy bed), living room / dining room with a sofa bed (actually a very comfy sofa - unusual for a sofa bed); well fitted kitchen and bathroom and utility room. The terrace faces south and is covered by gorgeous sunshine for the whole day. There are two sun loungers, a table and chairs and a parasol to make it comfortable. If it gets too hot you can retreat inside which, due to the good insulation (do keep the blinds down and windows closed), keeps the apartment cool. When it is really hot you can walk up the farm track to the main building, which is a B&B, and jump into the lovely pool, which also has a great view. Couldn't think of a nicer place just to unwind. And as for the hostess, she makes you extremely welcome and can answer all you questions.
From the Owner
“In the late 70’ my parents, an architect who designed mainly hotels, from the building to the furniture, and a housewife and mother with a great interest in herbalism and gardening decided to leave the city and start a new life as organic farmers. They started looking for the farm of their dreams, difficult task since most agricultural areas were already seriously polluted or devoted to highly chemical agriculture. In the early 80’ they decided that Le Marche was ideal. Agriculture in this hilly area was still quite “traditional” and Urbino would assure a lively place to live where culture could be found along with beautiful landscapes, surrounded by other beautiful hilltop towns in this region, described as "Italy's best kept secret".”
