The magnificent Castello di Monterado is a historic castle-palace complex once belonging to the Dukes of Urbino. It is located on a hillside shaded by umbrella pines and ancient oak trees in Le Marche region not far from the Adriatic beach resort of Senigallia. It makes an ideal base for exploring the marvelous Marche with their wealth of museums, monuments and natural wonders like the famous caverns of Frasassi.
Four extremely spacious Suites on the piano nobile of the palace are richly decorated with 18th century frescoes of mythological scenes; for example, the goddess Aphrodite being born from the sea on the ceiling of the Suite named for her. It is furnished with precious antiques and boasts a private terrace, in-room safe, mini-bar and satellite TV; even the ceiling of the modern bathroom is frescoed!
A series of common rooms wraps around the courtyard: formal sitting rooms, a library with centuries-old books, a music room with terrace and a sumptuously-frescoed dining room where breakfast is served. Six simply appointed apartments, housed in a building across the street, each accommodate from four to six guests. They have fully-equipped kitchens, and are perfect for families or groups of friends.
