This area of Le Marche has a relatively mild climate compared to Tuscany or Umbria. However the summers can still be very hot. Spring and autumn are the optimum time for sporting activities such as hiking. Spring is also an excellent time of the year to view the wonderful displays of wild flowers that can be found in the mountains.

There are a wide range of things that can be done here.

Cultural Activities: The Macerata area has been inhabited for 10000 years so there is plenty of history to enjoy. Urbs Salvia is the largest Roman era excavation in the area. Casa Carotondo is surrounded by medieval hilltop towns with architectural and artistic treasures of interest. In the Middle Ages Castles were built around the Calderola area, some have been restored and are worth visiting.The works of Carlo Crivelli are exhibited throughout the Marche, the nearest to Casa Carotondo being at Monte San Martino. Paintings by Lorenzo, Lotto, Titian and others are to be seen at various locations. For modern art head to Ripe San Ginesio. Visit the home of the famous Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi who was born and lived in the Marche in Recanati. Religion has played an important role in the Marche history find out more and visit the beautiful Basilica of Tolentino and Loretto. For a day trip head to famous Umbrian towns such as Assissi and Perugia.

Outdoors: Around Casa Carotondo you can take short strolls or mountainbike through woodland. There are routes in the surrounding countryside for walking or cycling from Sarnano or you can head into the Sibillini mountains. There are guidebooks for walking and cycling and we can help with route planning. Other possibilities include horse riding - the experienced can trek in the mountains. Paragliding is possible as are balloon flights over the area. You can swim or fish in Lago di Fiastra surrounded by mountains. If you just want to relax, drive to the top of the mountains, have a picnic and take in the views. In winter there is the possibility of downhill or cross country skiing. Further afield the Adriatic coast beckons with its sandy beaches and excellent fish restaurants. The Conero regional park is a rocky but beautiful stretch of coastline. Alternatively head north to the caves of Frassasi and the Gola della Rosa regional park.

There are numerous historical theaters in the area, which regularly have performances.
