The Abbey (l'Abbazia) is a perfect holiday destination for families and groups of friends in Marche, central Italy. Set in three acres of gardens and private woodland, it includes a large house, two apartments and a 16th century church. The Abbey is located on the north eastern tip of Marche, an area steeped in history including the spectacular Urbino - home to dukes and the original Papal library. The house is an hour from the coastal towns of Fano and Pesaro, 75 minutes from Ancona airport, and a short drive from the Umbrian and Tuscan borders. It is possible to hire the entire house and apartments, or separately.
