La Pieve

Cagli, Pesaro e Urbino

A charming converted chapel for 2. Sit midst the lavender and raise a glass to the 'dolce vita'; stroll past the terrace and into the vines

It is spacious, arched and lofty – a chapel in the 18th century. The confessional stands in the living room and the sacristy is your bedroom, serene, simple and charming. Colours are warm, floors are newly-tiled, the shower is roomy and there are a couple of comfy sofas. It’s cosy on spring nights (books to borrow, a roaring wood-burner) and cool in summer, with French windows opening to your own patch of garden with luscious views; sit out midst the lavender and raise a glass to the vines. Richard and Peter live and share this ‘dolce vita’ on the other side of the metre-thick walls. Cultured and humorous, happy to lend you chicken-bricks or juniper berries, they are conscious of their guests’ privacy but on hand if required. Come for Apennine walks and wild flowers in May, river swims in summer, funghi and truffles in autumn (visit the truffle fair at Acqualagna) – and the gutsy, restorative cuisine of the Marche all year round. The region is delightful with Cagli a major draw… look out for posters advertising the ‘sagra’, festivals dedicated to each town’s food speciality.

Highly recommend staying here. Friendly and welcoming and set in an ideal place for exploring and walking. For relaxation you can't beat it.


The perfect place from which you can explore this unspoilt region of Italy, our hosts Richard and Peter made the experience even more memorable with their in depth knowledge of where to visit eat and shop. Le Pieve was charming, secluded and well equipped with views across the vineyard and valley to the hills beyond and all from your own private terrace – Fantastic!
