The property 'La Locanda di Betti e Lollo' was developed from a stone house of the 19th century, and was renovated according to bioarchitectural criteria. The house is almost completely self-sufficient. The name of the house represents the combination of two very important concepts for Betty and Lorenzo: La Casa as accommodation for strangers and pilgrims, and Slow for slow. For here, time has stood still. La Casa Slow has two rooms on the first floor: one double and one triple. On the ground floor, there is a small restaurant that welcomes you with fine aromas and creative furnishing. Everyday objects, books and crafts are part of this magical place. In Betty and Lorenzo’s restaurant, you can enjoy a meal with local ingredients that are fresh and seasonal. The products are picked from the synergistic vegetable garden, which is cultivated according to the principles of biodynamics. Mountain bikes and snowshoes are at the guests' disposal. There are various hiking trails leading away from Bacciardi, and the river Bosso is only ten minutes walking distance. An unspoilt place for a refreshing swim in crystal clear water. From Bacciardi, it’s only 30 minutes by car to Urbino, Urbania, Gubbio, Città di Castello and Sant'Angelo in Vado. Betty and Lorenzo will give you advice and recommendations to discover the landscape and Montefeltro. La Casa Slow organizes small events during the year, concerts and activities that you shouldn’t miss under any circumstances!


The small village Bacciardi was founded in the 19th century and is located on the slopes of Mount Nerone, in the heart of Montefeltro. The inhabitants lived mostly off timber and sheep. There was a sheep for everyone, so 300 sheep for 300 inhabitants. In the sixties, Bacciardi was abandoned: the residents moved away in search of safer and better work. Some went abroad, others moved to the big city. Together with Betty and Lorenzo, there are now six people who have chosen to live here. The other houses are open three to four times in the summer. Bacciardi consists of thirty houses, a small square, a church and a handful of residents. There’s a legend about the area around Baccardi: since the time of Count Brancaleoni, a spirit named Taddea is said to live here. According to the legend, a girl was in love with Muzio Brancaleoni. But she could not marry him, because she belonged to another group, and the Guelphs and the Ghibellines did not mix. One night, she rode away on her horse in a sharp gallop, and threw herself from a rock called "Balza di Taddea". Her body and that of the horse were never found. When you have the courage to call her name three times, you can hear stones rolling down the hillside, as if they were her tears.

Elisabetta & Lorenzo Host

We are Betty and Lorenzo, a crazy couple. We love to travel and discover unusual places. The aim of our roving was to find a special place where we can live, work, and raise our children. And so we found Bacciardi. We have both been before and have now come back. This almost uninhabited village shares a unique energy. This is the realization of our dream: Environmentally friendly restoration, recovery of rainwater, solar panels and the use of wood for heating. We live here since 2010, and were finally able to open our restaurant a year later.
