Locanda della Valle Nuova

Pesaro e Urbino

Gloriously green rural self-catering apartments (and B&B) with pool and lovely, friendly owners


3 places


Sleeping from 2 – 4


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, 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. For B&B guests, the conversion has given La Locanda the feel of a discreet modern hotel, where perfectly turned sheets lie on perfect beds, and most of the rooms have views. 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.

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!
  • Drive around the Northern Le Marche hills and enjoy the gorgeous views of the countryside and the many villages and hilltop towns where you will find surprises in every church and lane.
  • 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, landscapes, antique music, opera, great pottery, local artisans, amazing food, all in an untouristy region where the locals will be thrilled to welcome you
  • 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!
  • Northern Le Marche have truffles year round: we can arrange fun truffle hunts with our neighbour and his dog.
