Villa Federici enjoys a quiet rural location approx. 500 m from the small village Bargni di Serrungarina in the hills behind Pesaro. The villa was built in 1683 by abbot Federici, who was adviser to Emperor Leopold I, and his representative in Venice. The villa is 280 m above sea level, and enjoys views over Montefeltro's hills, the Apennines towards Tuscany, and the Metauro valley. The wide sandy beaches of Fano are 20 km away.
The villa has recently been renovated and is part of a large property with a private park, in which there are century old trees and a small private chapel. The rooms of the villa have been converted for travellers, and it has a breakfast restaurant. There is also a lounge with fireplace (no smokers), a wine cellar and a renowned restaurant, that has been recommended by the Michelin guide and the gourmet guide Gambero Rosso. A rich and great meal can be eaten here for approx. 35-40 euros (plus drinks). Nearby is another good restaurant, Simposium, which can also be recommended.
The place has five bedrooms, three of which have en suite bathroom, and two share a bathroom. The latter two are ideal for a family, where parents and children can sleep apart, but share a bathroom. The bedrooms are furnished with restored antique furniture. The charming host couple has decided to re-create the original environment, so there are no TVs or telephones in the bedrooms. However, these modern conveniences are available at the reception (telephone) and in the breakfast room (TV), when breakfast is not being served to guests.
