About this listing
Design Farm SANTANNA is located in Italy, on the northern boundary of the Marche region, overlooking the Adriatic coast. From the farmyard, you can enjoy the sea and the town of Cattolica up north, the natural reserve Parco San Bartolo to the south.
The farmhouse is a typical example of country residence made of bricks and stones from the end of the 700s and the beginning of the 800s, renovated and expanded many times, but almost forgotten in the Santanna hills, with its 12 hectare park of grapevines, olive trees, fruit garden, wood and bent grass for domestic animals. Recently and decisively renovated (June, 2002) by the current owners, complying with the ancient masonry and space, the interior has been converted in accordance with the contemporary way of country life. The garden apartment which is on rent is a tiny building of 50 m2 (next to a tuff block and under centuries-old oaks) composed of a living with bed, kitchen, services and loggia. The large glass wall north-westerly shows an amazing view: in good weather, the massif of San Leo is disclosed. South-west there is the loggia where you can have dinner enjoying the sunset on the sea and on the landscape of the Romagna. From the living you have direct access to bathroom and pantry with skylights for lighting and air. There are many facilities here: fridge, TV, oven and a rich library. This site is suitable to accommodate up to 4 guests.
There many things to see, besides the natural reserve and the coast: the most interesting towns nearby are definitely Urbino, art and cultural heritage, Pesaro center of music and cinema. Last but not least, there are hundreds of little villages in hinterland of both Marche and Romagna with their peculiarities and amazing surroundings to visit and enjoy.
Few minutes far (about 3 km), there is Fiorenzuola di Focara, ancient village in the natural reserve Parco San Bartolo. The charm of this small site perched over the sea, characterized of tiny ways of stone and halved church, offers to the visitors an extraordinary view for the upper Adriatic. From the core of the village you can walk down to the sea (there is also a bus) where the sea water is clear and the beach is next to the cliff, broom smelling: one of the best natural gift ever. After a day by the sea, you can taste the traditional piadina and erbe at the square of the village.
