The Marche region

Marche is an amazing combination of beautiful rolling countryside, mountain ranges, woodland, ancient hilltop villages, stunning coastline and beautiful cities. Marche offers the traveller a wealth of culture, art, crafts, excellent local cuisine and beautiful scenery and being fairly undiscovered you will rarely be faced with the crowds now associated with the tourist sites of Tuscany. The list of villages, towns and cities worth seeing is endless where you can visit the numerous historic attractions or simply roam the narrow streets and beautiful piazzas.

For the traveller who simply enjoys soaking up the local atmosphere Marche is certainly the place. For those wishing to take part in more energetic activities the region offers it all - skiing, walking, golf, aqua parks, tennis, horse riding, twin-engine go karting, quad biking, hot air ballooning, fishing, sailing and scuba diving.

The Marche region, a rectangle measuring 9693kmsq or 3.2% of Italy's total surface area lies between the Marecchia and Tronto rivers and to the east of the Apennine Mountains. Historically Marche has been an isolated region sheltered by its natural mountain borders and by the Adriatic Sea. However, it is gradually gaining recognition as a stunning region of Italy. Bordering both Umbria and Tuscany, as well as Abruzzo, Lazio and Emilia-Romagna, the region has an identity all of its own.

In general, Marche has a typical Mediterranean climate with mild winters and hot dry summers. Summer temperatures average between 25-30 degrees but can reach the mid 40s. April, May, September and October are lovely warm months but without the extreme summer temperatures.

The historic city of Macerata which holds the second largest open-air opera festival during July and August is only 1 hour 40 minutes by car and the ancient city of Urbino can be reached in 30 minutes.

The well-known Grotte di Frasassi (Frasassi caves) are one of the most complex karst systems in Italy. The caves offer an underground world of lakes, beautiful transparent alabaster formations, vaulted caverns and stalactites suspended like daggers. Guided tours are available throughout the year.



The origins and etymology of the town are still uncertain: it probably rose, like most part of fortified villages of the area, during the eighth and ninth centuries, as a result of the continuous battles for possession of new lands. The Castle of Bargni followed Serrungarina and was involved in the wars between the Malatesta of Fano and the Montefeltro of Urbino; the conquest of the Castle by Federico of Montefeltro in 1462 was a terrible event: the castle was sacked and many of its inhabitants killed. The vestiges left from the Middle Ages are the walls, some buildings and the church of Santa Trinita, dating from the sixteenth century, built on an ancient watch tower. The church kept two important paintings: a Madonna with Child, a 15th century tempera on panel from the school of the Venetian Michele Giambono; a Madonna and Child with San Sebastiano and San Rocco, a 16th century tempera on panel from Giuliano Persiutti from Fano. They both are now in the bishop curia. Just outside the walls lies the 16th century Church of Sant'Apollonia, patron saint of Bargni, now desacrated. Approval to renovate the church has recently been given. At the entrance of the village, you'll find the the villa belonging to the family who made its history: Villa Serafini.


The history of Serrungarina is scarcely documented: originally divided in two parts, Borgo Bello and Serra Longarina or Serra Ungarina, which probably derives its name from Ser Ungaro degli Atti, a well-known 14th century notary. Serrungarina was a centre of important historical events, and had been the battlefield of the war in 207 B.C. between the Romans and the Carthaginians in the Metauro Valley. Located along the Via Flaminia, it has been for centuries a resting place for travellers. Like most part of the communes of the region, during the 16th century the city was disputed between Byzantinians and Goths, and reached a perod of peace and prosperity only after many brutal battles and the rise to power of the Malatesta Family. An important event is closely entwined with the fortress built in this period, an imposing wall which still aligns the picturesque borgo: the attempted invasion by Pope Eugenio IV's troops in a bid to oust the Malatesta family from the Contado Fanese. The centre is still almost intact in its fortified circuit and its narrow alleys, around the main Piazza Serafini, decked with a linden tree several hundred years old. On the Piazza we can admire the town hall, the former Palazzo Malatestiano, and the parish church of Sant'Antonio Abate, which in 1665 replaced the Torre Malatestiana (the previous church was outside the walls), demolished in 1866 but rebuilt in 1870. Inside the church it is possible to admire the paintings of the Guerrieri (Visitation, 1620) and of the Presiutti (Immaculate Conception, 1560). Not to be missed is the romantic staircase, inside the fortress and the cistern from the Malatesta. For several years now you can find inside certain rooms of the parish a superb mechanised crib, displayed around Christmas that is annually visited by more than 10,000 people coming from all over the region and neighbouring areas. Another folkloric event is the Carnival of Serrungarina, with parade carts and sweet-throwing.

"Perfect holiday"

The perfect holiday accommodation for this beautiful part of Italy. Having stayed in the area several times before, we were looking for somewhere close enough to Fano, in a good, scenic location and with a pool. With two boys aged 8 & 10, we felt that we'd found somewhere that would suit all of our needs. We were not disappointed and have just returned from a fantastic two weeks that has got us thinking about how soon we can return. The location is simply perfect, with stunning views, quiet surroundings and yet accessible as long as you have a car (which you can park in the secure underground car park). The pool was always quiet and often we had it to ourselves. The accommodation was very clean, well furnished and practical, with the two bathrooms and a functional kitchen along with AC and a good TV and DVD player. We couldn't have asked for more and the owners were an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout. You don't often find the perfect combination of all the different elements you are looking for, but as long as you are OK with two flights of (private) stairs, then you will not be disappointed. We really hope to come back as soon as possible. Thanks for a truly memorable stay.
