B&B La Torretta
Where we are
Tavullia is the birthplace of Valentino Rossi, so if you are passionate about motor racing it is impossible not to visit his Fan Club, where you can learn all about the history of this great champion and see lots of memorabilia, and it is only 1 km away from our B&B. When the "Misano GP” is in town, all his fans depart from Tavullia to reach the "Marco Simoncelli" race track together. When he is not travelling around the world, you can watch him from the terrace of our B&B while training or just racing with some of his friends on his own race track.
Rita Cutolo also lives and works in Tavullia, she is well known both in Italy and abroad for her skills as a pranotherapist and healer.
And for people wanting to see and find out more about the history of this region, Tavullia is as good a place as any to start your excursion as it is located among ancient villages and medieval castles.
Tourists who like a relaxing holiday by the sea can also enjoy everything that nature has to offer as the entire region between Rimini and Pesaro-Urbino has an extraordinary wealth of landscapes. The province of Pesaro-Urbino alone has 3 natural parks: Monte San Bartolo, between Pesaro and Gabicce Mare stretches along the rocky coast overlooking the Adriatic Sea; the Inter-regional Natural Park of Sasso Simone and Simoncello, nestled in the heart of the Apennines; the Gola del Furlo State nature reserve has fascinating landscapes created over the years by river erosion to the mountain walls.
There are also natural nature retreats in the Rimini region, beginning high up in Valmarecchia and descending to the Conca valley, you can follow one of the many footpaths created for hiking enthusiasts, and there are also paths and trails for people who love travelling by bicycle. A visit to the Onferno Caves in the municipality of Gemmano is also well worth a visit.
Tavullia is only a few minutes from the most famous beaches on the Romagna and Marche Riviera: Rimini, Riccione, Cattolica, Gabicce Mare, Pesaro, Fano, with their wide, sandy beaches and latest bathing facilities are all waiting for you. Those who prefer more isolated beaches in contact with nature, then the coves enclosed in the Mount San Bartolo reserve, Fiorenzuola di Focara and Vallugola bay are ideal. Within approximately 1 hour's drive you can also reach the coast of Monte Conero and the well-known beaches of Numana and Sirolo.
Just 5 km away, lies the town of Gradara with its ancient castle in which, according to legend, the tragic story of Paolo and Francesca took place.
Just a few miles away, closer to the sea, you will find Pesaro and Fano, two cities built on the ancient via Flaminia. There is a richness of Roman remains here, as well as beautiful medieval and Renaissance palaces. Pesaro is the birthplace of the composer Gioacchino Rossini and it hosts the internationally renowned music festival "ROF - Rossini Opera Festival" during August. On the nearby hills overlooking the sea, Mombaroccio, Novilara and Candelara are also worth a visit for their striking views and beautiful landscape. The "Feast of the candles" also takes place in Candelara (in the first two weekends of December), and it always attracts lots of people from all over Italy.
