Casa Nonno Alessandro is located in the Marche region, in the central part of Italy, near the medieval town of Cagli, between Urbino and Gubbio, and the natural park of the Gola del Furlo. It is an oasis of peace and silence in the midst of unspoiled nature, surrounded by cornfields, sunflowers, fruit trees, an olive-garden, woodlands and beautiful winding paths ideal for long walks.
On the ground-floor of the country house there is a very well decorated guest apartment, Le Avellane, suitable for 4 persons. The former barn has been made into three apartments (each sleeping four persons): they have their own style and colour and are named after their position towards the sun: Aurora, Mezzogiorno and Tramonto (respectively sunrise, midday and sunset). On the first floor of the country house there is Apartment Vellaneta.
All the guests have at their disposal a spacious, elegantly decorated salon on the ground floor, with a library, a piano, a fireplace and several cosy angles to relax or read. The salon leads to a wide veranda that offers a magnificent view of the mountains and the garden, where you can enjoy a glass of chilled wine in the evening, watching beautiful sunsets. There is also a swimming pool with a solar shower, jeu-de-boule (pétanque), an archery field, a telescope, free WI-FI, a laundry room for washing and ironing and a parking area.
Your Italian host, Alessandro, is an excellent cook who can prepare many delicious dishes, pasta, meat as well as fish for lunch or dinner on request.
If there is enough interest (min. 4 persons), it is possible to organise an Italian cooking course.
