to the Country House Museum Ca' Vernaccia
and to the Locanda La Tartufara
Ca' Vernaccia is a wonderful ancient cottage in the splendid landscape of Central Italy. Dating back to the 18th century, it lies in the open country and is crowned by a marvellous scenery of uncontaminated beauty. Situated at a distance of only 2,5 km from Urbino (fixed during the Renaissance by Duke Federico as the historical capital of Montefeltro, with its magnificent Ducal Palace the city has been recently listed among the World' s Heritage by UNESCO), Ca' Vernaccia can give hospitality up to 40 guests in different accommodations. Moreover, in the neighbouring Locanda La Tartufara you'll have the opportunity to enjoy the delicious local cooking and the truffle specialties in an atmosphere which reminds one of the wholesome and natural life of past times.
The ancient Country House gracefully grew up like a sort of tiny hamlet. When one of the sons or daughters of the owners got married, another wing was built for them around the former core of the house, towards the valley, facing the ridge. Formerly built with stones and bricks, the house has been restored using original techniques and ecological materials, such as wood, stone, bricks and terracotta tiles.
All our facilities are provided with independent entrances and private restrooms with shower; one of the apartments has been equipped in order to facilitate the stay of disabled guests.
All around and inside the house and the inn, a lot of objects and typical instruments of the region country lifestyle has been mounted in specific locations, converting Ca' Vernaccia in a little open-air museum, where our guests can truly live past history over again.
