“A fantastic location”
Reviewed April 30, 2011

an old monastry, totally renovated... half is a clocks museum, the only one in Italy. The B/B has only half a dozen rooms, but beutifully restored and very clean. The two ladies, Ester and Loredana, the two hosts are lovely. Ester speaks ducht and english.
Also, Ester 's husband owns a well known winery, and they are more than happy to take you there to sample their wines and cheeses.

Because half of the building is a museum, during school terms there are lots of school excursions during the morning, monday to friday, whilst you can see & hear the kids playing outside you can't hear them when they are inside the building.

We are going again in July.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
At Saltara, among the sweet hills that dominate the Metauro valley, enclosed in a green oasis nearby the sea, we find a restructured villa from the 16th century which has been transformed into a charming country house. The charm of the history and the position of the building are combined with the comfort of the seven rooms and suites, embellished and readapted to the modern demands of hospitality. Villa San Martino is a prestigious epoch residence located on the summit of a hill between Saltara and Cartoceto. The structure is harmoniously inserted in one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Marches' hills and it offers an ideal stay for sweet couples and all those people who look for a calm and reserved hospitality, suggestive atmospheres and comfort. An oasis of calm where it is possible to relax, to be welcomed and cuddled as by a warm maternal hug, in a fascinating place that has not been conceived as a traditional hotel. The Villa was built in the 16th century, around a chapel dedicated to S. Martino which had been constructed in a woodland area before year 1000 and formerly consecrated to Mars. In 1399 Earls Negusanti from Fano became owner of this area until 1677. Bishop Vincenzo Negusanti built the Villa making it an astronomic abservatory, and it remained unchanged until his death which occurred in year 1573 in S. Martino. He was a very cultured and eclectic man, and he studied astronomy and astrology. In 1677 the Villa was sold to Earls Marcolini by the last Negusanti heirs. Earl Antonio Marcolini belonged to a high rank of the Holy Order of Saint Stephen's Knights, pope and martyr. This degree was named Balì, therefore starting from late 1600, the Villa became the Villa of Balì. The ownership remained to Marcolini family until 1852, then it passed to the venerable Society of Jesus and finally it became part of Comune di Fano estate. A refined and exclusive place, rich in tradition and attractions. Each room is individually furnisched with a particular attention in reproposing the ancient shapes with taste and elegance, thus making them topical. Antique pieces of furniture find there their own place; precious fabriques and several details of good taste go very well together with the tiled floor; arched ceilings with wooden beams, crystal chandeliers and lime walls in different colours. All the rooms have a panoramic view, a private bathroom, fridge, safe, TV and hair dryver. The seven rooms take their name from Pleiades, the stars of Taurus constellation, for long-time one of the most admired astronomic objects in the sky. Usually named the seven sisters or the seven virgins, according to the Greek mythology Pleione's and Atlanti's daughters were transformed into stars by Zeus. ... more   less
