The name Vellaneta derives from the word "avellane”, hazelnuts, that have been growing here from time immemorial. The estate is located in the Marche region, in the central part of Italy, very near the medieval town of Cagli, between Urbino and Gubbio, and the natural park of the Gola del Furlo.
The Vellaneta estate is in the midst of an unspoiled nature, surrounded by cornfields, sunflowers, fruit trees, an olive-garden, woodlands and beautiful winding paths that allow you to explore the wonderful surroundings, showing magnificent views of Monte Petrano, Monte Nerone, Monte Catria and Monte Acuto. It is the ideal place to feel in harmony with nature. 
There is a country house made of natural stone, where several families used to live in the past, and a hay barn, both dating back to the 16th century: they have been beautifully restored, maintaining the characteristic style and using original materials. The total area occupies a space of 63 hectares and is situated on an altitude of 500 meters. There is swimmingpool in a panoramic position, a jeu-de-boule, an archery track and a dart board.
