Between the sea and the mountains, we also find a "hill" situated in the Metauro Valley between Fermignano and Urbania, on the hillside to the right near to the village of San Silvestro. As well as running a farming concern, I also offer bed and breakfast accomodation in a quiet and relaxing setting, inside our new and extremely comfortable family home. The position is perfect for reaching both the Adriatic sea, with Fano, Pesaro and Rimini only 40 minutes' drive away, and the heart of the Apennines in the Marches region (Carpegna, Mount Nerone and Mount Catria) - also a 40-minute drive away. There are also many areas of artistic and cultural interest nearby (Urbania, Urbino, San Marino, San Leo, Gubbio, etc.).
