The spirit of a 15th-century retreat lives on in a perfect restoration that combines the highest standards of today's accommodation with the charm of ancient things. Only few places have been able to retain through the centuries the unchanged appeal of times so ancient that fade into a distant past. A private road that runs through an oak and chestnut tree forest leads to the hamlet that opens up, today as in the past, to the view of the Sibillini mountains, a few steps away from Camerino in Le Marche, Central Italy.

About this location

The Marche region

The lakes, the hills, the rivers and the mountains are the first surprise that's in store for us when we get to this little known corner of Italy, next door to Tuscany and Umbria. We are situated a couple of miles from the town of Camerino, with its medieval center, cobble-stone streets, shops and ancient University. The main cities of art of Central Italy are all very close. Even Rome is less than 2 hours away by high-speed train. In about 45 minutes you can reach the sandy beaches of the Adriatic, or climb up the Sibillini Mountains (6,400 ft). Local food is simply exceptional.


The Vegenana Valley is a gentle and peaceful land that overlooks Camerino on the opposite hill, with its churches and bell towers rising from behind the city walls that date back to 1300.

From a distance, the tall buildings appear pink in colour, and the lower ones look almost white-browed by making a stark contrast with the green hills.

The Sibillini Mountains on the background still hide the mysterious legend of the sorceress Sibilla, and there linger on ancient tales of knights errant.

The Valley surrounds an ancient medieval castle, still inhabited by the noble family that once owned it, and that can be reached through a forest path from the hamlet, across the hill.

Walking through the forest, many animals undisturbed by human presence can be seen: foxes, hedgehogs, badgers, fawns, squirrels.

The farmhouses scattered across the hills are partly abandoned, and they witness that the Valley had been inhabited over the centuries mostly by farmers, whose activities would gravitate around the city of Camerino.

The heart of the Valley, with its original settlement, is reputed to have been the ancient hamlet, now restored.

The origins of the hamlet are witnessed by ancient stone engravings and documents.
