Alto Poggio means ”high hill” and is located in the Val Marecchia (Marecchia Valley), named after the river flowing through it. The river Marecchia runs all the way to the city of Rimini, from its source 1003 metres up, about 20 km from Alto Poggio. The valley of Marecchia is surrounded by the regions of Marchè, Tuscany and Romagna. Historically speaking, it’s the cornerstone of the Montefeltro-area, and its traditions are diligently maintained. The countryside is simply breathtaking, and abundant with various species of wild animals and plants, most of which are protected. The summers can be very hot in Italy but the high altitude and gentle summer-winds from the valley guarantee an ideal temperature.
