The Experience

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.

A true sense of the past with all comforts in this magical hillside property immersed in a lush garden with the sea on the horizon. A candlelit dinner in the attractive gourmet organic restaurant is certainly a highlight of the stay as well as the affable and discreet staff who will suggest best choices of places to visit in the Marche.

The neighbourhood

The estate lies midway between Fano and the delightful seaside town of Pesaro; beaches are a short drive. Back home you can stroll the gardens, walk in the woods, and swim in the large, well-maintained pool.

Anna Passi

The Passi family have a long history of taking people in – their palazzo in Venice and their apartment in Rome have been in the family for centuries, while the villa in Marche was handed down from a Baroness to a Marquess, and finally to Anna, who opened it as a hotel in 2005. Alongside the Passi’s four adult children – Federico, Almorò, Mila and Niso – the family welcomes guests to enjoy the history, culture and beauty of their own, genuine side to Italy.
