Marche villa property
In an open and sunny position in the municipality of Acqualagna, in the Marche, the villa property is located a few kilometres from the Natural Reserve of Gola del Furlo, an ancient ravine that was carved out among the mountains by the erosive action of the Candigliano River.
To allow the passage of people and vehicles, the Roman emperor Vespasian had a gallery opened in the narrowest point of the ravine and it was known at the time with the Latin term forulum (meaning ‘small hole’) which led to the current name Furlo. Nowadays the gallery is no longer visible since the river was dammed for safety reasons.
The property is reached via a short private road.
The nearest towns, Urbania and Acqualagna, are reached in no more than 10’ by car. Urbino, a beautiful Renaissance city part of the World Heritage List, is 20’ away. The Adriatic Riviera with Fano, Senigallia and Cattolica is just an hour away, as well as the seaside locations of Riccione and Rimini.
Through the A14 highway, one can easily reach Cesena (1h 30’), the Republic of San Marino (1h 20’) and Bologna (2h 10’) with its airport.

The main villa (240 sqm – 2,582 sqft) is laid out on two floors and made up as follows:
– Ground floor: entrance from the loggia, living room, ample living room with dining area, kitchen, bathroom, pantry, laundry, cellar and technical room. Both the living room and the dining room have direct access to the loggia equipped with a wood-burning oven and ideal for al fresco dining.
– First floor: 4 ample bedrooms, 3 of which with en-suite bathroom and one with walk-in closet.
The dependence (35 sqm – 377 sqft) is currently used as a garage but could be easily converted into a habitable building.
Completely restored respecting the traditions of local buildings, the villa is fitted with cutting-edge systems and covered in prestigious materials.
The under-the-floor heating/cooling system grants minimal thermal dispersion and a constant temperature inside the building.
