Located in the heart of the Montefeltro area of the Marche, a short distance from Urbino, and just 20 km (12 miles) from the Adriatic coast, the Tenuta Santi Giacomo e Filippo is set in the verdant splendor of the La Badia nature reserve, where vineyards cling to hillsides, alternating with woodlands, and punctuated by small lakes. Named for the saints Giacomo (James) and Filippo (Philip), the estate (Tenuta, in Italian) is the fruit of an extensive restoration, of a centuries-old farming community (borgo, in Italian). Taking its cue from local tradition, this painstaking task involved the use of local materials, and sustainable practices, to ensure respect for the environment while creating a luxurious setting that would make a stay at the Tenuta Santi Giacomo e Filippo a truly memorable experience.
Featuring 22 rooms and 11 apartment-suites, the Urbino Resort is laid out across six of the buildings that made up this ancient farming community, each different from the next but all decorated to reflect the local setting, with furnishings hand-picked for the purpose and refined details providing the elegant finishing touches. Situated close by are the Swimming pool and the Spa, with its wide array of holistic therapies.
Set in the nature reserve called the Oasi Faunistica La Badia, the Tenuta also includes an Organic Farm (Azienda Agricola), which is the contemporary incarnation of generations-old country traditions. Here we produce wine, olive oil, and honey. Our guests can sample these, along with other farm-to-table products from a select group of local producers, in our Urbino dei Laghi restaurant, as well as at breakfast. These products make fabulous souvenirs and can be bought from our shop (Bottega), or, once you are back home, from our online store, the Farmers’ Market.
The unique beauty of the Abbey dedicated to the saints James (Giacomo) and Philip (Filippo), from which the Tenuta takes its name, our various meeting and reception rooms, as well as our banqueting facilities make the Tenuta a perfect choice for your special events, including weddings, while our riding stables, which we call Urbino Horses, provide that extra touch.
