The house is located near the village of Cantiano, in the province of Pesaro – Urbino, at the foot of Mount Catria, the “Gibbo” mentioned in the Divine Comedy by the Italian poet Dante Alighieri .
The country-house is situated near the ancient Flaminia road, on the border of the Umbria region.
The oldest part of the house was a guard-tower dating back to the Middle Ages. Later on the building was converted into a farmhouse.
A perpetual water spring gushes out close to the house (the property called “Acqua Battaglia” is named after it). The spring is mentioned in some of the oldest maps.
The farmhouse was recently renovated (1999-2002) but it preserved the structure made of white stone (the so-called “corniola” of the Mount Catria) and the architectural details of the old farmhouse. The building is made up of four apartments; all of them are equipped with a kitchen, a bathroom and furnished with “arte povera” furniture.
They are fitted with a fireplace and are provided with all the comforts to make a stay an enjoyable experience for all. For those looking for a relaxing holiday plunged into the atmosphere of past times , Acqua Battaglia “ is the ideal place.
A fenced park has been created for residents within the property; it includes the house, a swimming pool (14m by 7m) and a patio area furnished with tables, chairs, deck- chairs and a barbecue.
