Make a holiday villa in Fano your home away from home

The popular seaside resort of Fano in Italy’s Marche region lies on the Adriatic coast. More than 2,000 years ago this place was one of the largest Roman settlements on the Adriatic and today Roman remains can be seen in the old part of town. Historic sights and old churches are only part of Fano’s charms; there are also high quality beaches, a museum, art gallery and colourful festivals to keep the whole family entertained.

For those who want to be near the beach HomeAway has a collection of beautiful holiday villas in Fano that are a few metres from the water’s edge. These large and well-furnished properties have private gardens and terraces and most importantly sea views. There are also holiday villas situated in the countryside within a few kilometres of the sea. Fano holiday apartments are also available in both these locations and feature such essentials as towels, coffee makers and toasters. Some of the properties will consider pets. The area is one of the most attractive parts of the Adriatic coastline. Nearby is the beautiful coastal resort of Pesaro where HomeAway also has a varied selection of holiday properties.

Things to do

-Historic monuments: One of Fano’s most recognised sights is the Arco di Augusto, the Roman arch. The upper story was destroyed during a siege in the 15th century, but the rest is in good condition. Noteworthy historic buildings include the 12th-century cathedral, Malatesta Castle and the Court of Malatesta with its vaulted ceilings and religious paintings.

-Beaches: Fano consists of the old part of town and the modern beach resorts that have grown up around it. There are two beaches to take in the sun’s rays and splash in the surf: the long, pebbly Spiaggia Sassonia with its wide promenade, and the shorter, sandy stretch called Spiaggia Lido. Between these two beaches is a pleasant fishing harbour.

-Museums: Housed inside the Archaeological Museum and Art Gallery are numerous relics from the town’s Roman past including coins and pottery. Also on show are a number of important works of art by such famous Italian artists as the Baroque painter Giovanni Francesco Barbieri and Giovanni Santi, the father of Renaissance painter Raphael.

-Festivals: The town sure knows how to throw a great party. For one week during August, Fano’s streets host many cultural activities for the great Roman festival known as Fano dei Cesari. It concludes with chariot races and people parading in Roman costumes. Music lovers descend on Fano in July for the Fano Jazz by the Sea festival. The Fano Carnival is held during February and is the oldest one in Italy, dating back to 1347.

Weather in Fano

Being a seaside resort, Fano is at its busiest during the hottest months of July and August when temperatures can reach 30ºC or more. Late spring and early autumn are also good times of the year to book Fano holiday apartments as the climate is warm and dry, although there can be some rain in September. The wettest months are October, November and December.

Travel to Fano

Fano is located 40 kilometres to the north of Federico Fellini International Airport in Rimini and 50 kilometres south of Falconara's Raffaello Sanzio Airport. A railway line connects the entire Adriatic coast and there are good road connections throughout the region. Many visitors with a holiday villa in Fano rent a car for ease and the freedom to move around.

To begin with the location (although a slight walk from Fano town - 20/30minutes) was beautiful. The surrounding area of rolling hills and orchards created a lovely scenery. The villa itself came very well prepared for the number of guests (22) that we had - which is not an easy feat! Anything that was missing or needed at any point was kindly organised by Lirim, an extremely helpful man who also tidied the swimming pool area every day. Furthermore, Nik ensured that our trip went totally smoothly and was very easily reachable at any time for advice and guidance. I could not recommend this villa and host more. Thank you Nik!
