The Marche / Abruzzo / Marche region
Those in the know head for Le Marche, which along with Umbria and Tuscany, constitutes the central region of Italy. Le Marche is situated in the east of the peninsula, and sits between the Adriatic Sea and the Apennine mountains. While the Adriatic coast is well known for its many excellent beaches, the interior remains unspoiled by tourism, and you will find towns and villages where the pressures of modern life seem worlds away.
Le Marche is a virtual treasure chest, rich in history, bursting with nature, art, folklore, and culinary traditions. Here you will find incredibly picturesque hilltop towns and villages enjoying panoramic views of lush, verdant valleys.
Renaissance palazzos and beautiful churches with fine works of art appear around every corner, and watching the impact of the changes in seasons on the mountainous countryside is a phenomenal experience and a privilege. Italy of course is well known for its wide and deep sense of culture and history. Le Marche is a major contributor to that, and within the region there are several prehistoric settlements, roman ruins and so forth. There are some 3000+ years of history and various sites provide evidence of prehistoric human Palaeolithic and Neolithic settlements. There are settlements of the Picena, Roman and Barbaric civilisations, fifty-seven historical town centres (Centri Storici), with countless abbeys, castles and fortresses, patrician villas, some seventy plus art galleries and both archaeological and ‘theme’ museums, all of which play their part in preserving the rich history.
Food and Wine.
For a true taste of history, you will discover that the cucina povera (peasant food) is simply outstanding. Le Marche is well known for the quality of it’s local produce, and many restaurants do not have menu’s but prepare whatever is best on the day. Lunch is the main meal for most and typically includes an anti-pasti dish (starter), a prima (first) course of pasta and a seconda course of meat. Dolci, or dessert, is of course available for those feeling brave enough. Do not be intimidated though by the menu, and ordering only one or two courses is more than acceptable.
Depending where you find yourself at lunchtime will influence the choices available. If you have driven down to the coast you will find fresh seafood specialities such as fish soup (brodetto) together with a wide selection of caught that morning fish dishes. If you find yourself further inland, meat is the mainstay of the menu with poultry, beef, lamb, goat, rabbit, pork, and wild boar widely featured. For those of you who normally shop in supermarkets, you will find the range of fresh, seasonal ingredients, home-made pastas,local cheeses, truffles and bread extraordinary. Most villages and towns host weekly markets that provide an invaluable source for buying fresh food at more competitive prices. The Le Marche region also produces an extraordinary range of wines, including 13 varieties of DOC designated wines.
The San Ginesio area
We are nestled in a beautiful valley so much of the surrounding landscaping is a mother nature intended - green rolling hills, woodland and streams at the bottom of our garden. Each of the properties have their own terrace and garden for relaxing in privacy and enjoy al fresco dining looking over the valley. We are planning a pool, lavender walk and other unique landscaping plans which will evolve with the property.
The fantastic beaches of the Adriatic Riveria are just over a thirty minute drive away down the S77. These include the more typical tourist destinations that prove popular with locals and tourists. If however you are looking for something quieter, there are many secluded coves a short distance from Civitanova. A drive down the coast is well worth doing as there are several traditional seaside towns worth spending time in.
If golf is a part of your holiday plans, there is a championship standard golf course around an hour's drive away in Sirolo ( in the middle of the Riviera del Conero). It is open all year, and has an 18-hole championship standard course, a 5-hole 'executive' course, a driving range and putting greens. The 18 holes are a a pretty challenging par 71 and you will probably need that all your clubs! Carts are available for hire, but it would be a shame to miss out on the pleasure of walking through such a magnificent setting. The course is normally quiet on weekdays (ideal for those here on holiday!), booking advisable at weekends. Great clubhouse with full range of good meals at reasonable prices available, friendly staff and comfortable surroundings.
Skiing is widely available in the Sibillini National Park, around a twenty minute drive away. Sassotetto, close to St Mary Magdalene, comprises one of the best, and most modern, ski areas in Le Marche. The resort boasts modern lifts serving a network of ski runs on a mountain side slope suitable for both beginners and the more experienced. The ski related activities that can be practised in the area range from downhill skiing to cross-country, through to snowboarding. Nivea station has a modern system of artificial snow on all slopes which can often extend the length of the ski season through till March.
