About Le Marche

Le Marche or The Marches is one of Italy's best-kept secrets. Surprising and wonderful in its diversity, this region of Central Italy shows off its multi-faceted beauty through cliffs and caves that overlook unforgettable beaches. The Region takes up most of the Adriatic side of Central Italy lying between the Adriatic Sea and the Central Appenines and offers, in our view, delights that compare with the best of Tuscany: beautiful natural scenery, wonderful bathing and sea sports, cultural and artistic centers and typical Italian hill towns and villages.

Accommodation in Le marche

Accommodation in Le marche Senigallia, Civitanova Marche and San Benedetto del Tronto Senigallia, Civitanova Marche, Civitanova Marche and San Benedetto del Tronto are some of the beautiful seaside resorts along the coast. For keen walkers and nature lovers, the Conero Riviera offers amazing views and patches of unspoilt land, often only accessible via the sea or footpaths carved into the green Mediterranean scrub. The seabed along Conero, rocky with some sandy areas, is rich in animal and vegetable species, making it highly attractive for scuba-divers.

Not to be missed are also the Monti Sibillini and Monti della Laga National Parks and the Frasassi Caves. Here you can enjoy bird watching and catch glimpses of golden eagles, peregrine falcons and eagle owls, while trekking enthusiasts can take long walks through the woods and forests. There again, take the chance to go horseback riding, canoeing and mountain biking. You can also cycle along pleasant routes to discover natural, historical and cultural wonders, as well as the typical food specialties of the region.

Le Marche has something for everyone and we are very proud to have fantastic self-catering properties in our portfolio. Our accommodation in Le Marche can cater to variety of tastes. These include private villas with pools and self-catering apartments with shared pool.

 

If you are after a relaxing holiday in the peaceful countryside, Villa Eco and La Colletta are ideal for you. Set farther away from the coast and yet within easy reach to the beaches, these two private villas with pool offer great holiday accommodation. Villa Eco sleeps 4 people and is so charming and tastefully done that it is the perfect romantic getaway for couples; La Colletta features 4 bedrooms and can accommodate 9 people for an unforgettable family holiday.

Among our self-catering apartments with shared pool, Marche Riviera Trilo and Bilo apartments are certainly the ideal accommodation for families with children or groups of friends who want to stay close to the sea and make the most out of activities and excursions. This accommodation is close to the Conero Natural Park and to Ancona, making it a good destination from Ancona airport.

Borgo del Tronto is a restored 16-century building that has been transformed into 8 self-catering apartments of various sizes. It is situated in the renowned location of San Benedetto del Tronto, which is the most popular seaside destination in Le Marche thanks to the lovely beaches and waters and to the pretty town centre.

Other recommended destinations are Ascoli Piceno with its Medieval historic center, Piazza del Popolo and Palazzo dei Capitani del Popolo. On the first Sunday of August, the streets of the town serve as the background to the memorable Quintana , in which expert horsemen challenge each other at the Saracen Joust.

Ancona is an ancient port hub known as the “Gateway to the East”; The Cathedral of San Ciriaco rises on the site of an ancient Greek acropolis and is considered as one of the most interesting Medieval churches in the Marches.
The area comprising the historic center of Urbino is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Palazzo Ducale in Urbino is an enthralling architectural and artistic example of the Italian Renaissance.

FOOD AND CLIMATE
The typical rustic tastes of the hinterland can be identified in meat dishes like roast suckling-pig and marinated lamb, as well as in dishes created around truffles and mushrooms. Outstanding pasta dishes are tagliatelle, strozzapreti ("priest stranglers") and the traditional vincisgrassi.

The fresh, sweet flavor of the sea can be found in the brodetto, a fish soup containing more than 14 fish species; it is often enhanced with tomatoes or saffron. Ascoli signature dish is the fritto misto all’ascolana, a medley of stuffed olives, cream, fried zucchini, artichokes and lamb chops.

The most famous desserts are ciambellotto con i funghetti all’anice (a ring-shaped cake with aniseed), cicerchiata (deep fried dough with honey), and fried ravioli stuffed with chestnuts, cream and ricotta cheese.

Food is accompanied by the beautiful wines of Ascoli Piceno: the white Falerio dei Colli Ascolani, the red Rosso Piceno and Rosso Piceno Superiore, stored in wooden casks with a Mediterranean hint of aniseed-flavoured liqueurs.

June and September are usually the best months to spend in Le Marche, as the temperatures are mild and the beaches are less crowded. Nevertheless, there is always a very pleasant breeze coming from the sea, which cools down the July and August heat.
