The Casina Nuova is a newly refurbished two bedroom apartment with very spacious and bright interiors, standing 500m away from the main house and the swimming pool. It’s located in a farmouse in sight of Urbino, Le Marche, on the ground floor of the same building as the Casina dei Tordi but each apartment has its own entrance and privacy is assured.The dining/living area has a table for four and two comfortable sofas.In the same room there is a well equipped kitchen that has a fridge-freezer, a four-hob gas cooker, a small oven (a real oven, just smaller), a kettle, a toaster, a coffee machine and an Italian coffee pot, a dishwasher and all the crockery, pots and pans that you need to cook and enjoy a full meal.The bigger bedroom has two large and comfortable single beds (that can be made into a kingsize bed), a large wardrobe (with drawers, hanging rail and shelves) and a sitting area. We can add a third bed in this room, just as big and comfortable as the other ones. The room has a private bathroom next door where the washing machine is placed. The room faces south-west and the sunsets are often spectacular (the best time of the year for sunsets is September).The other bedroom has a comfortable queensize bed, en-suite bathroom, a wardrobe (with drawers, hanging rail and shelves) and a little sitting area for guests to enjoy their private space even if sharing with friends or family. The bedroom faces south-east so it has beautiful light in the morning (but there are shutters to keep it out if you prefer to sleep!).There’s extra storage space in the corridor.Both bathrooms have a shower, basin, wc and bidet. One also contains the washing machine.Step outside and you’ll find yourself on your own private porch with table and chairs to enjoy your meals outside (it’s nice and cool even during the hottest months) and a small garden surrounded by trees and the amazing hills of Northern Le Marche.The apartment is not air-conditioned but has very good insulation and double glazing, and assures a very cool stay even in the hottest months since it faces north.
