The Experience

In gentle, breeze-cooled hills, surrounded by ancient, protected oaks and on the road that leads to glorious Urbino, the delightful owners of this 185-acre organic farm produce meat, legumes, vegetables and tonnes of preserves. You’ll find jams and juices in your pretty apartment and you’re welcome to collect herbs, fruits and vegetables from the farm. Foraging trips, visits to the farm, cheese making lessons wine tours and truffle walks can all be organised  – you just need to ask Giulia, who speaks very good English. Each apartment has comfortable beds, well-equipped kitchens and a terrace for al fresco meals with heavenly views. It’s very green here too: solar panels for heating, photovoltaic panels for electricity. Twice weekly meals are prepared with organic produce in Valle Nuova, the central building where cooking courses also take place. Splash in the cooling pool, walk for miles, or just doze with a book and enjoy the slow pace of life here. If you arrive at the airport after dark, Giulia kindly meets you to guide you back. That’s the sort of place this is.

Just enjoyed a wonderful, peaceful holiday staying in Casina Nuova apartment for 4/5. The apartment is beautiful - spacious, very comfortable and well equipped and has stunning views all round. The lovely city of Urbino is 15 - 20 mins drive whilst all the facilities you need (cafes, shops etc) are within 5 minutes drive. Welcoming, friendly and generous hosts. Thank you very much Giulia! (p.s we're all missing cat like mad!)

Wonderful peaceful base for exploring Urbino and the surrounding area. Incredible views in all directions from the very well equipped apartment. Giulia was very friendly and helpful and speaks perfect English. Definitely a Special Place to Stay!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Giulia Savini

  • We are a short drive away from Urbino, one of the most interesting Italian Renaissance towns, where Raphael was born and the most famous Architects of the time worked. Do not miss the outstanding Saint John's Oratory, a Medieval pearl!
  • We have been working hard for over 30 years to make our farm and house as green and sustainable as possible: we produce 100% organic and our photovoltaic plants (all installed on our roofs) make us completely carbon neutral.
  • Le Marche offers something for everyone: art, architecture, gorgeous views, antique music, opera, quaint villages and hilltop towns, great pottery, local artisans, amazing food, all in an untouristy region where the locals will be thrilled to welcome you
  • If you like great food and wine Valle Nuova is the place for you! We cook dinner twice a week with our organic produce. Cooking classes. Cheesemaking classes. Foraging. Truffle hunts: white truffles grow in our woods! Food and wine tours. Wine tastings.
  • We have a deep knowledge of the area, the architecture, art, food, traditions and culture and we will be glad to share it with you in English!
  • We also have 6 B&B double bedrooms for family reunions or groups. We can help you organize all kind of activities for your group, please contact us with your ideas and we will help you!
