The Marche/Abruzzo region

Le Marche has been described, in many ways but two phrases particularly spring to mind; “Italy in one region” and “Italy’s undiscovered secret”. Both are undoubtedly true. Where else could you find the blue water of the Adriatic only 50 minutes away from skiing in the Sibillini Mountains. In between the two, there are rolling hills, not unlike Shropshire, and little villages perilously perched, on top of hills seeming more like little coronets in a vast panorama lying before you. The people still move in a time honoured fashion, to the rhythm of the seasons, and not the ticking of a clock. Certainly in the countryside this remains true. It is a tranquil place to be.

Culture abounds too in Le Marche. There are many museums, art galleries, castles and theatres and most villages too, can boast of their own, tiny theatre, as well as in the towns. There is also a thriving café society in the summer months alongside the International Opera Festival, the Blues Music Festival, the Summer Jazz Festival and others besides. And of course, every village holds some festa or other to celebrate the local produce of the month, or a Palio, commemorating an historic local event. Le Marche is a land of contradictions in that it is both the place to get away from it all and the place to indulge in feasting and partying in a local village, almost every night of the summer. You can make it your own Marche. It is perhaps best summed up in the words of possibly Le Marche’s most famous son, Giacomo Leopardi, in his poem;

L'Infinito (English Translation)

This solitary hill has always been dear to me And this hedge, which prevents me from seeing most of The endless horizon.

But when I sit and gaze, I imagine, in my thoughts Endless spaces beyond the hedge, An all encompassing silence and a deeply profound quiet, To the point that my heart is almost overwhelmed.

And when I hear the wind rustling through the trees I compare its voice to the infinite silence.

And eternity occurs to me, and all the ages past, And the present time, and its sound.

Amidst this immensity my thought drowns:

And to flounder in this sea is sweet to me.

Colmurano

Nestled into the hillside with stunning panoramic views of the Sibillini mountains, this exquisitely restored country farmhouse lies close to the medieval walled village of Colmurano. Here you can pick up all your groceries – if you prefer to shop locally and go native – or enjoy a drink at one of the bars in the piazza, eat one of Benzo’s pizzas or sample some of the local specialties - boar and truffles. If you are bored of lounging in the pool, the beach is only 25 minutes drive away, or you can escape to the cooler mountain air a mere 40 minutes away - ideal for skiing in winter. Nearby is the Abbadia, a nature reserve for walking or biking, and many other picturesque hill towns with weekly markets, such as Urbisaglia, Loro Piceno, San Ginesio, Gualdo, Sarnano, Tolentino and Macerata.

"Great Farmhouse"

Casa Wisteria is a great house wth very little to wish for on a vacation in le Marche. Even on hot days, the house is very cool. The kitchen facilitates lots of cooking adventures. The pool is a bit o… More

"Beautiful house, amazing views and an excellent holiday for everyone"

The house is more beautiful than it appears on the photographs. The views from every window are simply breathtaking and we loved sitting around the pool with only the sound of the birds and buzzing insect interrupting our serenity.
The house is very comfortable, although we spent very little time indoors. Everyone had the use of an en suite which made getting ready for dinner very peaceful, unusual with a house full of teenage girls. We made use of the well equipped kitchen and ate out less than we usually do on our holidays as cooking there was such a pleasure. The pizza oven got some use although our son (19) did manage to set his hair on fire which caused much hilarity...well it needed a trim! However, the restaurants we did find were exceptional for their quality and their price - we recommend la loggia in Urbisaglia and Agra marta just outside Colmurano - both a 3 minute drive.
We had a couple of problems while we were there and the local contacts sorted them out speedily. We had not realised there was no internet so we should have done more research before we left the UK but La loggia has internet and we spent some afternoons with a glass of prosecco on their terrace working out our next days outings... not too much of a chore!
We visit Italy most years and loved this house and this region very much. We are already planning next years holidays. Thanks Anna, your home is very special.

"Complete and utter chill out zone..."

11 of us, family and friends, enjoyed an amazing two week break here. It was like going back in time. Total chillout. The kids (15, 18, 21, 23) cooked their own pizzas in the pizza oven, we baked our own bread, we shopped in the local markets, just generally did things we never usually have time to do. We saw our first double rainbow (and took hundreds of photos!), relaxed every evening over cocktails, swam at midnight. We were never bored and didn't want to come home.

"Unbelievably beautiful setting, gorgeous decor, perfect family hangout"

If I could own this property as a family holiday destination I would! We've been a number of times, with young family, teenage family and as a couple - in the winter the skiing is simple and close and the log fires and big rugs are divine. In the summer the pool is luxurious, the BBQ's endless and even breakfast (for the non teenagers that are up pre noon) provides a view worthy of a film location.
The village is full of local fun, the beach is close enough for day trips, as is a Todd's/designer factory outlet - this is Italy at it's best - oh and with very few Brits, which makes it even more special.
