Large farmhouse, sleeping up to 14 guests, with swimming pool (12x6m)
This is a large and beautiful holiday farmhouse set in a location to match. In the foothills of Marche's northern Apennine range it offers tranquillity and beauty in equal measure.
This old but well restored farmhouse is ideal for a large group of guests. Downstairs is a large hall with fireplace. library room with piano, living room snug, kitchen and large dining room and one en suite bedroom and two toilets.
The other six bedrooms are located upstairs, three en suite and the other three sharing one bathroom.
The property is close to the small town of Piobbico four miles away, famous in Italy for its Club dei Brutti which promotes the virtues of "ugliness over the slavery of beauty."
At the higher end of town is a wonderful castle, originally built in the thirteenth century, given a facelift in the 1570s and now undergoing another restoration. It is open at weekends from June to September. Throughout the summer the town stages various events, including a polenta fete, a mushroom exhibition, a wine festival and a medieval pageant.
Situated close to the borders with Tuscany, Umbria and Emilia-Romagna, Casa Bianca is an ideal place from which to explore Marche and central Italy, with Perugia, Bologna, Florence, Assisi, Siena and Rome all day-trip possibilities.
Yet there is also much to see and do closer to home. Just 20 miles away is the wonderful university town of Urbino, the birthplace of Raphael and the home of the Palazzo Ducale, an architectural masterpiece which houses Marche's most important museum, the Galleria nazionale delle Marche.
An hour to the north is San Marino and the beautiful beaches of the Adriatic Coast are within half an hour's drive.
