Macerata Feltria (Pesaro e Urbino)
Charming medieval fortified village in the center of Montefeltro, where you can enjoy excellent traditional cuisine and stays in historic houses, relaxing in front of a breathtaking view and surrounded by unspoiled nature, immersing in the past in an atmosphere where beauty and hospitality were the most important features.
There is also an enchanting panoramic swimming pool at the guests' disposal.
The farm has an internal circuit of mountain bikes, reserved only for guests and equipped with jumps, parabolic and DownHill, total length about 2 km. Some mountain bikes are also available free of charge.
For guests only, there is also a regulated bowling alley.
Borgo Cisterna is completely devoted to looking after guests, whether they are seeking a pleasant holiday of relaxation and culture in historical accommodation, or just want to sample the cuisine offered by the restaurant.
While the Borgo boasts large spaces and interiors, only a few bedrooms have been created in keeping with the original layout, thus guaranteeing perfect tranquillity and authentic hospitality. The ancient residences offered to guests are all large (up to 40 m2) and furnished with period pieces, each with its own entrance, private bathroom and independent heating.
Fruit trees, aromatic herbs, olives and vegetables are cultivated in the estate around Borgo di Cisterna. Special produce includes the Borgo Cisterna caper, a species listed at the Regional Registry (n°70 in the Plant-Herb Species Section, according to the Regional Law 12/2003).
All the produce grown by the agriturismo is an integral part of its cuisine, which represents the linchpin of the family tradition and the search for original local recipes.
The farm is next to the Sasso Simone and Simoncello Park, surrounded by rolling hills which inspired the landscape backgrounds of Piero della Francesca’s famous paintings.
Montefeltro, an area of unrivalled natural beauty and cultural wealth, is set in the Marches, between the borders of Tuscany, Umbria, Romagna and the Republic of San Marino, at the centre of which is Urbino, the gem of the Renaissance.
This area, the intersection of ancient routes in a varied landscape, with many different environmental and scenic aspects, can be visited on foot or by mountain bike along the old roads, sheep tracks and pathways through the hills, all spectacular natural itineraries and reaching the most panoramic viewpoints in the area; guests can take a break at the top of a hill or a swim in a stream or a waterfall, knowing that rest and refreshments await them at the Borgo.
Guests can also enjoy a cookery course on the ancient techniques of handmade stuffed pasta and other dishes. Other available courses include "Identifying wild herbs", "Pottery Course" and "Embroidery Course".
