Why come to the Forestale ? >

An address nestled in a preserved nature

Far from the beaten track and the big Italian cities, La Forestale Luxury Ecolodge is located in a haven of peace and tranquility in the Furlo Gorge, on the banks of the Candigliano River.

Housed in an old ranger's barracks, the establishment has been completely renovated and refurbished by Don Merlino to make it a place of relaxation and authenticity. The terraces are fully integrated into the architecture of the building and offer visitors beautiful 180° views of the area. The founder's idea is to offer the traveler a complete immersion in nature.

Uniquely Designed Theme Rooms

Don Merlino's passion for design is reflected in the unique decor of each room. The price of a night for two people at La Forestale ranges from €129 to €289, including breakfast.

The self-catering apartment

Ideal for travelers seeking autonomy and independence, the apartment has a modern, fully equipped kitchen, a spacious bathroom and a bright bedroom. Thanks to the sofa bed, come for 2, 3 or 4 people and combine comfort, contemporary design and freedom during your vacation.

D&B Rooms

3 rooms with very different atmospheres can be booked at La Forestale:

  • The Gandhi, with its Zen and relaxing atmosphere;
  • The Rabhi, in homage to Pierre Rabhi and his concept of "Happy Sobriety";
  • The Mandela, with a breathtaking view of Monte Paganuccio and the river from the terrace.

The Rabhi and the Gandhi can be combined to become a family room. Finally, for an independent group vacation, you can rent the entire floor and the kitchen.

The Royal Suite

Located on the top floor with a breathtaking view and a large bay window to enjoy it fully, the Royal Suite offers you an unforgettable interlude in any season. With luxurious furnishings and a large private terrace, you will have only one thing to do: enjoy the spectacle of nature before your eyes and the panorama of Monte Paganuccio.

What to do around the ecolodge in Italy ? >

A paradise for sport lovers...

Whether you are a short walker or a long hiker, you will have the choice to explore the surroundings of the ecolodge in total freedom!

The amateurs of more demanding sports activities will also be delighted by the eco-responsible hotel nearby:

  • Marked mountain bike trails for all levels;
  • Kayaking or canyoning;
  • Refreshing and invigorating swims in the Candigliano River.

Not far from the sea

Not a fan of mountain sports? In the Marche region, the sea is never far away. The seaside resorts of the Adriatic coast and their beaches can be reached quickly by car. You can lay down your towel in :

  • Fano. Less than 30 minutes away by car, you can enjoy sandy or white pebble beaches. You can then reach Pesaro by bike to explore the coast without a car or taste the catch of the day in the port of Pesaro.
  • Pesaro is a small town on a human scale and can be explored on foot or by bike. You can discover its rich historical center before or after tasting the salty water of the Adriatic;
  • Senigallia. Known for its "velvet beach", 13 km long and with very fine sand, it is the ideal destination to enjoy an afternoon of reading under the sun.

Culture and gastronomy

Restaurants nearby

With at least 5 restaurants within walking distance, the Italian ecolodge La Forestale is the ideal place to enjoy the gastronomy of the Marche region. Whether you prefer a refined truffle meal or a crispy, well-stocked pizza, you'll find a restaurant to suit every taste and budget.

La Forestale is located in the municipality of Acqualagna which is considered the capital of the white truffle. The different varieties of this precious mushroom can be picked up all year round.

During your stay, go with a truffle farmer to explore the surroundings of the ecological hotel. Discover all the secrets of the search for truffles. You can then learn how to prepare them with chefs in the Forestale kitchen, before finishing with the best part: the tasting!

The ecological commitment of the Forestale >

Inspired by Pierre Rhabi's philosophy of "Happy Sobriety", the Forestale Luxury Ecolodge was designed to minimize its impact on the environment.

Don Merlino has renovated this former barracks into a smart building that aims for energy autonomy. During your stay, he will be happy to share with you his passion for design and show you all his design secrets:

  • The building built with recyclable materials and certified by ecological labels;

Solar panels to produce part of the energy, combined with an intelligent storage and management system;

  • A latest generation heat pump;
  • The recovery of rainwater for the toilets;
  • The implementation of a sorting, recycling and composting system;
  • The presence of a charging station for electric vehicles (bicycle or car) powered by photovoltaic panels
  • The firewood is guaranteed without cutting down trees. Only dead wood recovered from our forest is used;
  • The electric car (FIAT E-500) and scooter (Mantis) used for logistical needs.
