About this location
The Marche region
Le Marche Regional Info
Le Marche region of Italy, which has long been its "best kept secret", is a little touristed region bordering the Adriatic sea to the east, the Abruzzo region to the south, and Umbria region to the west.
Just few areas in Italy, and indeed Europe, can offer such an amazing mixture of unspoilt landscapes and historic medieval villages and towns as Le Marche.
Ancona is the main port of Le Marche and home to some Italy's best seafood. The Basilica of San Ciriaco is situated near the mouth of the harbor at the top of Guasco hill and has been used as point of navigation for sailors. Close by is Ancona's most prominent Roman ruin, the excellently preserved Arch of Trajan.
The Palazzo Ducale is the centerpiece of the old city center, now recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Palazzo dominates the city skyline, with its twin towers being recognized throughout Italy as the home of a real Renaissance man. Also Urbino is home to even more art treasures among its neighborhoods including the Duomo, the church of San Giovanni Battista and the Oratory of San Giuseppe.
Pesaro is located at the very mouth of the Foglia River and is both - a lovely seaside resort town as well as one of Le Marche's industrial centers. Pesaro's coastline is home to a stretch of gorgeous beaches as yet undiscovered by foreign tourists. Opera lovers will want to visit the home of Gioachino Rossini - of Barber of Seville fame.
There are lots of activities beeing offered for visitors in Le Marche. Apart from the do-it-yourself activities such as walking, trekking, sunbathing etc., you may enjoy, for instance, horse riding and different guided tours. Walking, hiking, trekking, mountain climbing and biking with able and professional guides who know all the hidden paths and routes through the Sibillini mountains. Also there are flying clubs with micro-lights and hang gliding providing courses for beginners. There are also lots of people offering mountain bikes for hire.
This is a region where you may revel in various amazing local festivals, such as Ascoli Piceno - La Quintana jousting festival in August, Pesaro - Rossini Opera Festival in August, Pianello - Sagra della Lumaca snail festival in June, Monte Monaco - Sagra della Castagna chestnut festival in October or Talamello - Formaggio di Fossa cheese festival in November.
Italian Food and Wine
The food of Le Marche equally shares from the bounty of the sea as well as the farm. Brodetto is the most famous fish stew of the Adriatic coast and varies in form from each coastal town. The Le Marche versions of Brodetto include red and gray mullet, cuttlefish or squid (or both), oil, garlic and saffron - served on either fried or toasted bread.
Le Marche produces a really large variety of wines including 13 varieties of wine carrying the D.O.C. (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) label. Many of these wines are little known outside of Italy but visitors to the region have a pleasant surprise when they try the local wine produced by many small aziendas and cantinas.
The following varieties of vines are the most popular, growing well on the gentle slopes of the hilly regions: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Sangiovese, Ciliegiolo, Pinot nero and bianco, Verdicchio, Trebbiano, Malvasia of Tuscany, Vernaccia Nera and Maceratino.
Monte Rinaldo is a charming and relaxing place to stay. The village has a bar, pharmacy and a well stocked shop all with 200 metres of the house. The local agriturismo/ restaurant is a steady 10 minutes walk away, and there are dozens of restarants and pizzerias within easy driving distance. The village has the only roman remains in the area and a small museum. The sports area is about 5 minutes walk away, with a tennis court ( racquets and balls are in the house for your use). During the summer there are traditional festivals in every village, the festival in Monte Rinaldo is usually sometime in August. Local markets are held weekly for shoes, clothing and food etc.

"Well equipped house in beautiful and friendly hilltop village location"
This was our second visit to this lovely house and I would thoroughly recommend it for couples of a group if adults looking to explore this part of Le Marche. The house is well equipped and beautifully clean and comfortable and has lovely view of the Siblini mountains from the rear, and of the village church at the front. There is a general store, bakery and bar within a couple of minutes walk of the property, and a supermarket and several good restaurants within a 10 minute drive.Both the Siblini mountains and the coast are within a 30 minute drive so it was perfect for our group which contained both walkers and seaside sun worshippers.
Thank you for your review, we are glad you had such an enjoyable stay and discovered the beauty of this area of Italy.
