Finding Us


The closest is Perugia, then Ancona and Bologna.


The easiest way to locate us is on Google Maps (we recommend not trusting your Sat Nav!).  Simply type in ‘Valenzano, Sestino,’ and the arrow pinpoints us.  (PLEASE NOTE:  We are NOT ‘Castello Di Valenzano’ at Subbiano). Directions from whereever you are on Maps will get you here.

Some more details though:

If arriving from Bologna or anywhere north of Pesaro on the Adriatic coast you will come through Sestino.  Almost opposite the Ferramenta Magi is our turning:  coming from Bologna it’s a right hand turn near the beginning of town, coming from Pesaro it’s a left hand turn near the end of town signed Borgo Pace  (there’s a brown tourist sign towards Parco Ranco Spinoso too).  You need to follow this road (the SP51, sometimes marked Strada Provinciale del Passo della Spugna) for 3km.  Do not take the right turning to Lucemburgo, but a couple of hundred metres further on your right is a turning towards Valenzano and us.

If arriving from Fano, Ancona, Arezzo or Sansepolcro, you will need to go through Borgo Pace and take the SP51 towards Sestino. Please note there are a few kilometers of this road that are ‘white road’ – unmade with tarmac.  Don’t worry, you are still on the right road! We’re 10km from Borgo Pace and you will see the left hand turning to Valenzano and us.

NOTE:  Roads in the mountains around here are VERY curvy!
