Clinging atop a knoll that gently dominates the Marche countryside, the Casale del Duca is the ideal destination for a classy stay of peace and complete relax. Genuineness, elegance and warmth are the elements that characterize this wonderful structure of the sixteenth century renovated with loving attention to detail and in complete respect of its history. The Casale, consisting of a large two-storey stone building with a sloping roof, offers its guests five spacious and bright rooms, all with sitting room and fireplace, decorated with niches carved into the wall finished with wood, stone, terracotta floors, armchairs, antique and shabby chic furniture, upholstery and refined curtains that make the atmosphere sophisticated and rustic at the same time. The continental breakfast is lovingly prepared at home using only local products. Outside, there is only the lawn and the trees of the well-kept park embraced by the heights that surround the nearby city of Urbino as far as the eye can see.
In every corner of this marvellous historical residence there is a vivid echo of the poetry of an ancient time, composed of simplicity, harmony and beauty. Thanks to the conservative and elegant restoration carried out by the owners Laura and Luca, all the rooms, spacious and comfortable, bring the guest into a dreamlike dimension, while the wonderful outdoor space invites you to relax and contemplate a colorful and romantic landscape: an uninterrupted ascent and descent of hills touched by the Adriatic Sea, silent hills and lonely cottages. And again, neat fields and ancient centres full of art and beauty. Just five kilometres away lies the enchanting city of Urbino, known for being the birthplace of one of the greatest artists of all time, Raffaello Sanzio, but also for being the seat of one of the most complete and refined civilizations of the Italian Renaissance. Its historic center, included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, is capable of concentrating in a very small space the most diverse beauties and still retains the vestiges of its glorious past. A magical place, full of charm and history, which is a must to visit at least once in a lifetime. As well as the Adriatic coast, which is just thirty minutes by car from Casale del Duca, a must-see destination for lovers of golden beaches and the crystal clear sea typical of a piece of Italiy to be discovered.
