Art, eating and exercise: The villa is about 90 minutes drive ( not August ) from Florence, 60 minutes from Urbino, and 60 minutes from Arrezzo, all of which have the most exquisite Renaissnace paintings and scupture. Bologna, the food capital of Italy is a 70 to 80 minute drive away, and Restaurante Vite in Coriano - voted the Best Restaurant in Emelio Romagna - is some 40 minutes from the villa. Not to be missed ! Wonderful eating is also to be had in Santarcangelo, Nova Feltria, Verruchio and of course fresh sea food in Rimini, a great fishing port. We are situated about 500 to 600 metres above sea level in the foot hills of the Appenines and cycling is very popular in the locality. Also wonderful walking and climbing in the freshest and cleanest air in all Italy ! An Introduction to Poggio Bello will be sent to you with so much more information about the area and beyond.

I am a retired doctor, Consultant Anaesthetist, who bought the property - a small farm - as I love Italy and enjoy the rural life which the property offers.
Ronald purchased this villa in 2002
Why Ronald chose Sant Agata Feltria
I have refurbished the two villas on the property over the past 9 years and am always looking to ways to improve the place. I originally furnished it as I would for our own private use, but as the years have passed, owing to the fact that we dont get out for more than a month a year, decided to rent it out to simply cover costs. It is not run as a business venture, but simply a way of maintaining it to the standard I would want it when I holiday there, without the added expense of maintaining it.
What makes this villa unique
The position is wonderful as it is not overlooked by anyone or any property and although the nearest village of some 70 houses ( approximately 1 km away ) is visible from the front garden, they are unable to see into the property. The air is pure and totally unpolluted. We are 600 metres above sea level and in the mountains with no factories within many many kilometres. Local restaurants abound with local food and the area is not a tourist destination. English is barely spoken. The views from the front garden which is very large are unrivalled and the benefits of Le Marche as opposed to Tuscany are beautiful views, no tourists and awesome hills and mountains and valleys.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Just to let you know how much we are enjoying our holiday: your house, its location and all that goes with both are wonderful - the view, dinner at Fabio’s, Alexandra’s bread, the pool, Sant’Agata Feltria and its food shops etc etc. We are off to Arezzo today to have a look at the Piero della Francescas. What an idyllic location and, although I did go to the theatre festival at Sant’Arcangelo a few decades ago, a new one to me.
