The Marche/Abruzzo region

Le Marche is often described as 'old Italy' where the landscape and traditions have barely changed for centuries. The region lies in central Italy and is bordered on the east by the Adriatic Coast and on the west by the Sibillini and Appenine mountains forming a border with Umbria. To the north are the borders of Tuscany, The Republic of San Marino and Emilia -Romagna, and to the south the region of Abruzzo. The climate is similar to that of neighbouring Umbria and Tuscany, very cold in the winter and very hot in the summer, although Le Marche has a bit more rain and is therefore greener.

The striking features of Le Marche are: 180km of coastline with a great variety of beaches, most notable are the beaches of the National Park of Monte Conero near Ancona; stunning natural landscape - dramatic mountains of the Sibillini National Park and breathtakingly beautiful undulating hills; delicious local food and wine - Le Marche is home to the famous white wine 'Verdicchio'; and medieval hilltop towns, each one a jewell, scattered all over the region - Urbino, Cingoli, Osimo, Monte San Martino, to name a few. The region is also home to some of Italy's most famous artists such as Raphael and masterpieces by Verocchio, Piero della Francesca Uccello may be seen in Urbino. Shopping is also a local passion as Le Marche is the centre of Italy's leather goods manufacture, from designer shoes and handbags to belts. Many of Italy's top design houses have their outlet shops in Le Marche.

Cingoli

The medieval town of Cingoli, known as the 'Balcony of the Marches' is 15 minutes drive away with panoramic views over the hills to the sea. It was the birthplace of one of Italy's Popes and has a gem of a museum in his former home. Cingoli also has some important churches and is also home to one of Italy's best known motorcross trails! The town of San Severino, known as 'City of Art', lies in the valley below (10 mins drive), it has a good museum and gallery of fine art as well as some important churches and monasteries.

The Frasassi Caves nearby are the longest in Italy, one chamber large enough to hold Milan Cathedral! Well worth a visit.

Macerata is host to the world famous open air opera season at the 'Sferisterio' (40mins from the house) which runs June-Aug.

Throughout the summer there are pageants and palios and food and wine festivals in the local villages.

Further afield is Urbino, the world-famous Renaissance town and birthplace of Raphael (1hr 40mins drive) and within 1.5- 2 hours are: Mirabilandia (Italy's version of Disney Land), Fabilandia (theme park for small children) Le Navi (Aquatic park) and Italy's famous theme park 'Italia in Miniatura' where you can visit all the main cities and sites of Italy in a day.

"the place to stay"

Dans un cadre fantastique, la « casa delle lucertole » offre une vue à couper le souffle. Nous recommandons cet endroit qui, avec les collines aux alentours, les vieux villages du 13ème en pierres ne sont pas s'en rappeler les paysages de la toscane d'il y a 30ans !!!
La maison dispose d'un très bon confort et avec ses 5 chambres a permis d'accueillir notre grande famille ainsi que notre couple d'amis venus de Paris. Nous avons fait de mémorables apéros et des grandes tablées avec les produits du terroir sur la terrasse devant la maison, à l'ombre du figuier. Une autre grande terrasse en marbre blanc du pays, entour la piscine, de plus de 15 mètres de long afin de gouter au repos de cet endroit magique. La ville la plus proche, San Severino est la « citta del arte » et dispose de restaurants bons et bon marché ! Enfin les filles de la maison, un peu accros de shopping sont parties un après midi dans les outlets Prada, Todd's, Armani et sont revenues habillées pour l'été !
Bref, d'excellentes vacances authentiques à l'italienne dans cette très belle maison.
