Ca'salino is a newly built country house situated on a wooded hillside. It sits in the middle of its own 14 acres of land with outstanding views towards Tuscany and the Apennines in a secluded and tranquil setting. It was designed by a local architect and built in 2016/17 in traditional Italian style. The house is located 5 kilometres from the historical town of Urbino in the central Italian region of Le Marche.
Le Marche is one of Italy's best kept secrets, less well known than it's famous neighbours, Tuscany and Umbria; the countryside and ancient hill top towns can rival anything it's neighbours have to offer.
Urbino is one of the capitals of the Italian Renaissance and is dominated by the magnificent Ducal palace built in the fifteenth century by Duke Frederico da Montefeltro. The Duke was patron to many famous Renaissance artists including Pierro della Francesca and Raphael who was born in Urbino in 1483. Both the palace and Raphael's house are open to the public and contain stunning art collections.
There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants in Urbino as well as a Saturday market. There are also several large supermarkets but the closest is a short drive along the road towards Urbino.
The towns of Rimini, Pesaro and Fano on the Adriatic coast are within easy reach, 30-40 kilometres. Each of these towns have historical centres, accessible beaches, marinas and an abundance of seafood restaurants.
