Great location with perfect service! Beautiful surroundings, amazing views and just stunning place to be! The rooms are spacious and the service at the reception was very welcoming. Weddings are held here to have unforgettable moments. Classy place!
My husband and I stayed here after a trip up to Rimini for work. It was an oasis of relaxation, nature and good food. The views are absolutely incredible, the staff is lovely and the castle is breathtaking. It was total relaxation for us, as we went during what seems to be low season so there were not a lot of people. We really enjoyed it and highly recommend stopping here for a night or two.

Had found this place on Tripadvisor (thank you) but were not anticipating how totally delightful it is. What a special place, up on the hilltops about 25km outside of Pesaro an idyllic country hideaway. We had a lovely room in one of the modern buildings but it did not matter that it was modern, there was an upstairs sitting area and the windows opened onto the most stunning uninterrupted view of countryside and sea - perfection. The lady on reception was extremely helpful and gave us a very good local restaurant recommendation. Would love to go back soon. The only negative point is that the staff in the breakfast room could not have been more unfriendly and less helpful. Breakfast was quite hit and miss, sometimes there was cut up fruit, sometimes there wasn't,and not to serve eggs during the week is ridiculous. However, the place is so lovely that that didn't matter but I hope they read this review and take note.

The hotel is based in an historic castle, but most of the rooms are in a 'new' annex next door, but that means modern rooms and the combination works pretty well. The rooms are large and fairly well appointed and comfortable, but need some revamping - we had a CRT television! The location though is the winner - a hill top village, not far from the sea side resort of Pesaro and close to other beautiful villages including the UNESCO listed Urbino. All in all, well worth it.
