Wander among the pines, cypress oaks and roses of this hillside villa, and swim surrounded by olive trees.
Don’t expect formality and fuss here, just a gracious and kind welcome from Anna and her team. Summer breakfasts are served on the terrace of ‘L’Orangerie’, with a stunning view of the sea. At dinner, the chef works wonders with truffles, seafood, pasta, and seasonal delights from the garden. Bedrooms, the best and most baronial in the villa, are steeped in charm; one noble bathroom has a balcony, another is up a winding stair. If you like to self-cater, family apartments await in outbuildings close to the pool.
Set off for the beaches and restaurants of Pesaro, a 15-minute drive. Fano is even closer. In just over an hour you can be in Gubbio, a Renaissance gem high in the hills, or half-forgotten Urbino, beautiful for art lovers.
