A safe haven in open countryside

La Casetta, an old stone cottage for up to four, and La Pieve, a former chapel for two, set in glorious countryside near Urbino

Far from the crowds

A safe haven with deep cleaning and at least 52 hours between guests, self check-in, online payment, plenty of private outdoor space, and no contact needed with anyone else.

Laid-back charm

Smart but sober style with properly equipped kitchens. We've been inspected and selected by Alastair Sawday's guide, and you can read enthusiastic guest reviews on Flipkey.

Peace and quiet

Private gardens and terraces for eating and relaxing, with only nightingales to keep you awake. Inspiring views from both properties, yet with an easy and convenient access road.

Inside knowledge

Owners discreetly on-site with more than 25 years experience of living and working here. Visit Marche Voyager, our complete guide to Italy's Marche region.


No pool; no public transport; no meals served (it's self-catering accommodation); no television (but you may see this as an advantage).

Where are we?

We're half way between Urbino and Gubbio, in splendid countryside five kms from Cagli. Visit Google maps to see exactly where.
