The Marche/Abruzzo region
Set in classic rural Italy, close to the Apennines yet with easy striking distance of the Adriatic Riviera and such famous resorts as Rimini and Fano as well as the mountains and ski runs of Monte Nerone, Casa Francesca is very well located.
Within half an hour's drive are two extraordinary cities of art, Urbino and Gubbio and further afield are the provincial capitals Macerata and Ascoli Piceno, the first offering outdoor opera and the second a unique and stunning marble piazza.
Big cities such as Bologna, famous for its book and underwear fairs, Florence, Perugia and Rome are all possible day trip destinations.
Near the town of Cagli sin the heart of Marche's Montefeltro region (famous for its black and white truffles) this is also an area popular with walkers. Wildlife is plentiful including roe deer, badgers, porcupines and fox, hawks, buzzards and eagles.
A short drive away is Cagli, a small town with its own historic 500 seat theatre with regular plays and concerts. On the second Sunday of August the town stages the spectacular Palio dell'Oca, a Renaissance pageant in which hundreds of citizens in full costume parade the streets.
