|The region "Montefeltro" is the crossroad between the italian regions Marche, Romagna and Toscany and in easy distance to Urbino and the Adriatic Coast.|
|The scenery is of a rare beauty. The National Park of Sasso Simone e Simoncello is exactly the same as when painted by Piero della Francesca so inspired by what he saw.|
Near the junction of Foglia River und Mutino stream is the village of Piandimeleto. Its characteristic narrow streets and medieval buildings lie close to the castle of the Oliva Counts.
|The castle was erected on an old fort (probably built by Carlo Magno) and its large room today houses a Museum of peasant civilisation. The residence of the Olive Counts (descendants of captains of German troops who arrived in Italy before the eleventh century) is internally characterised by renaissance portals and fire-places.|
