The Marche/Abruzzo region
The secret of the attractiveness of Le Marche region lays in the variety of landscapes Le Marche can offer: from the turquoise Adriatic Sea to the high Apennine mountains. One of the Marches’ greatest qualities is that this region is not one of mass tourism’s favourite destinations, offering an enriching human scale experience within the surrounding of its spectacular natural environment.
Whether you are searching for masterpieces of architecture or art, walk across wild suggestive mountains, fish in a Mediterranean port or lay quietly on a lovely beach, the Marche has enough to offer and you will rarely have to run away from noisy tourists.
Gualdo is only two kilometres away. The local people are friendly. The village has two supermarkets and other shops, a bank, post office, doctor, dentist, chemist, dry-cleaner, restaurants, and a school. There are also tennis courts and a children's play area. Tuesday is market day, with stalls selling everything from clothes, shoes, pots and pans to fresh fish.
The spa town of Sarnano is five kilometres away. It has an attractive and well-preserved old centre, complete with an exquisite little theatre and an art gallery boasting several important paintings from the 15th and 16th centuries. Being larger than Gualdo, it has more of everything. Local bars and restaurants serve high quality, reasonably priced fare. In the main Piazza and the surrounding streets a popular market is held each Thursday. Reassuringly there is a high quality clinic in the town.
