The Locanda is the only Italian property included in The Guardian Green Travel List 2010!!
Like most agriturismos, food and wine are the focus at Locanda, a 1920s farmhouse run on solar power near the hilltop town of Urbino in northwest Italy. The owners grow organic wheat, fruit and vegetables, raise cattle, pigs and poultry, and make their own pasta, jam and wine. In autumn you can gather truffles from the woods and return to a wood-fired stove fuelled by coppicing from the 185-acre farm.
