Location description from owner

The Marche region

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.Other: Sarnano, the nearest town, has a wide range of shops and three supermarkets. There is a weekly market for fresh produce and a number of shops selling specialty foods such as locally made Pecorino cheese. Alternatively you can try out 'la cucina marchigiana' at the many reasonably priced restaurants in the area. For those in need of more retail therapy outlet shopping is a possibility with names such as Armani and Hogans. Every summer each town puts on a number of festas to attract tourists. These generally involve live music and food. A number of the medieval towns also stage Palios. Every year San Ginesio reenacts a battle it fought with Fermo in 1377. There are numerous historical theaters in the area, which regularly have performances. There are a number of music festivals during the summer for blues, jazz and most famously the Sferisterio opera in Macerata. All too hectic? Then sit on your apartment terrace, enjoy a glass of wine, the cool evening breeze and listen to the cicadas

San Ginesio

There are numerous festas in the area particularly during the summer. The most anticipated being the San Ginesio palio, a celebration of San Ginesio's medieval history and which includes a re-enactment of the battle with Fermo in 1377. Our local village of Cerreto stages its own festa each year with a duck race and game of roulette - prizes usually include, among lesser things, a lamb or goat!
