Hotel near Pesaro

| Hotel in Marche on the Adriatic coast, Relais in an ideal position to visit Umbria and Emilia Romagna

Relais Villa Giulia


Villa Giulia quietely stands in the middle of Nature, looking out onto the sea amidst gentle hills that are used for growing wheat, grapes and olives. It is a magical, timeless place for a holiday in the heart of the Marche region, but at the same time it is very easy to reach as it is located at less than 500 meters from the Adriatic state highway that connects Pesaro to Fano.

The residence is the ideal base for visiting the wonderful cities of art in the Marche, Umbria and Emilia Romagna regions such as Urbino, Gubbio, Assisi, Perugia and Ravenna and for discovering the natural beauty of various protected areas such as the San Bartolo Park and the Conero Park.

These Parks are full of wonderful views overlooking the sea, with large sandy beaches that stretch for miles, interspersed with cliffs, paths that wind across the mountains that often hide mysterious deep caves like the ones at Frasassi. There is a spectacular road from Villa Giulia that travels over the Appenines and takes you to Arezzo and San Sepolcro in less than two hours.
