Locanda della Valle Nuova

Le Marche, Italy


Organic Italian hideaway 

Far away from the tour buses, surrounded by beautiful, unspoilt hilltop Italian villages lies this eco friendly, organic agriturismo. The comforts of home are combined with stunning scenery, warm hospitality and some of the best dining anywhere.

The Location

Near the stunning and traditional towns of Fermignano and hilltop Urbino in Le Marche (one of the last regions in central Italy still considered to be under the radar), this organic farm is surrounded by a landscape of peaceful rolling hills.

Ancona Airport is a 1-hour drive and Rimini – Federico Fellini International Airport is also a 1-hour drive. The nearest train stations are Fano (40-min drive) and Pesaro (1-hour drive).

  • This is real Italy… away from the crowds and mass tourism, but accessible and stress free
  • Valle Nuova is carbon neutral with its rooftop photovoltaic plant. Each year it produces over 180,000 kwh of clean electricity, enough for the average yearly consumption of 18 US or 48 Italian households
  • The homely feel to the apartments makes you feel almost as if you are staying with friends or family
  • The lush and green landscape surrounding the property gives it a hidden, intimate atmosphere
  • The swimming pool is lovely and framed by hedges and trees with glimpses of that famous countryside vista
  • The owners here are terrifically helpful and friendly
  • The activities on offer give you a glimpse into rural Italian life. Whether it’s foraging for truffles or horse riding you’re after, it’s here
  • Taking a cooking class here, with all the ingredients sourced organically and on premises, is a quintessentially Italian experience
  • Three apartments (2 sleep 2, 1 sleeps 4/5)
  • Fully equipped kitchens
  • Terrace with outdoor dining at Casina dei Tordi with wonderful views!
  • Large communal swimming pool
  • Each apartment has air conditioning
  • Each apartment has a private outside area with outdoor dining

  • Cooking classes are available with pre-booking as are set menu dinners a couple of nights per week which must also be booked in advance

In 1981 the Savini family made their dream come true and acquired the farm to grow organic produce and ethically raise livestock. In 1999, Giulia’s parents opened it officially to visitors and now their retired Giulia and her partner Robert are the face of the business.

Previous guests describe the family: “Run by Giulia and her parents, the hosts are good company and helpful but also respect their guests’ privacy.”

The Savini family do such much to reduce their impact on the environment that it’s hard to keep it short, so check out their website – https://vallenuova.it/green, but key points are:

  • Valle Nuova has been a fully organic farm for over 35 years
  • They produce 100% of their own electricity and even sell back to the grid
  • In every aspect of their business (design, materials, insulation, shopping) they aim to be as “green” as possible, with no plastic no disposable items no single use items
  • This includes no straws, no plastic glasses, no individual use toiletries, no single portion jams or butter, etc and reusable shopping bags in units
