Le Marche - A Land To Discover:

 

Le Marche is dotted with small villages scattered throughout the region, charming oasis, full of history and culture, where time seems to have stopped, leaving room for a pleasantly slow pace, on a human scale, punctuated only by the inexorable passing of the hours and seasons.Infiniti tours and itineraries to discover the most hidden but also of the most picturesque villages in the Marche, where you can still live an atmosphere of genuine authenticity. 
Small towns, like pearls set in timeless landscapes still retain the original features and people reserve a warm welcome to visitors. Craft traditions and flavors to be discovered slowly, in a context of human dimension: from the Sibillini Montefeltro, from the coast of Gabicce to San Benedetto del Tronto, Marche offer many opportunities to get lost in perfectly preserved towns and villages, where you can still breathe the atmosphere of medieval and Renaissance. 
Surrounded by beautiful mountain landscapes or built on hills covered in vineyards, each country reveals an unexpected beauty and singularity.
By car, motorbike or by any means, more off the beaten tourist visiting the city less crowded and famous, you can rediscover the true Italian way of life, guided only by their curiosity. In these places, in fact, are still deeply rooted the original rural roots, love for the land and a way of life sober and reserved. Many of the charming villages Marches are part of The most beautiful villages in Italy club founded in 2001, with the aim of helping to safeguard those small towns or individual fractions, with a strong artistic and historical interest which, being outside of the main tourist routes, are likely to be forgotten.
Coming from the north, in the province of Pesaro Urbino, you meet Gradara, an impressive castle village annexed perfectly preserved, known as the fifth of the love story between Paolo and Francesca, immortalized in Dante's Inferno, the village of Mondavio, with his fortress, the Rocca Roveresca Francesco di Giorgio Martini, and to Montefabbri, whose medieval town gives a fascinating glance. 
Following is the village of Corinth, a work of art, which has a circle of almost 1 km long walls, perfectly preserved, in the vicinity, is the village of Offagna, whose charming old town is enclosed within the Ancient Town Walls, dating back to the twelfth century. 
In the province of Macerata, perched on the green and rolling hills, there are Matelica, where today the traditions and history coexist with innovation and development, and Montecosaro, which with its castle on the hill seems to stretch out into the sky. 
Inland, there are: the village Esanatoglia, called the city thread, with its seven towers and its walls overlooking the valley of the river Esino, Track, also known as the 'Balcony of the Marche', whose historical center is well located to 631 meters high and houses a masterpiece by Lorenzo Lotto, Our Lady of the Rosary; Treia, whose thirteenth century walls together with the neoclassical buildings make it an elegant village. Continuing perched on a hill and there Montecassiano Monte Lupone, one of the small towns that has best preserved the traces of its history, with the castle walls and the four entrances.
Further south in the province of Macerata, in the higher areas near the Sasso roof stands the village of Sarnano, famous for its thermal springs. Not far away is San Ginesio, another walled town with a magnificent square that stands against the blue background of the Sibillini Mountains, where there is also the village of Visso, located more than 600 meters above sea level, the seat of Mountains National Park Sibillini . 
In the province of Ascoli Piceno, however, we find: Moresco and Montefiore dell'Aso, erected on the opposite sides of the valley of the river Aso. As Moresco rises a particular heptagonal tower while at Montefiore keep well some towers and some original doors of the town dates back to the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, as well as the museum complex of S. Francis, who has a splendid triptych Catlo Crivelli Moving towards the coast, there is Grottammare with its village perched on a hill overlooking the water and, further inland, Offida, enclosed by a circle of the castle walls. The Marche region also fly less than 17 Orange Flags, eco-tourism and environmental conferred by the Italian Touring Club, the small municipalities of which are distinguished by an excellent service and a welcoming atmosphere. These include: a hill, in addition to the aforementioned, Corinaldo, Gradara, Mondavio, Montecassiano, Monte Lupone and San Gines include Acquaviva, undisputed medieval charm, and Camerino, home of occupying the entire Palazzo Ducale medieval origin, rich in works of sculpture and painting of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries in its museums and an extraordinary painting by Tiepolo in the church of S,.Philip depicting the Apparition of Our Lady to St. Philip; Monterubbiano of ancient origins where they discovered some Paleolithic and Neolithic, Ostra, with its walls interspersed with imposing doors, and Ripatransone, famous for its scenic location with vineyards that stretch almost as far as the eye can see; Stafford and Urbisaglia, where stands an imposing fortress dating back to the fourteenth century, of undoubted charm and home to the State Archaeological Park of the Roman town of Urbs Salvia. . In the mountains, to visit Genga, of ancient origin, known for Frasassi, Mercatello Metauro, of great interest to the ancient buildings carefully preserved, including the spectacular religious buildings, Pievebovigliana, rich in archaeological remains dating from the fourth century . BC, and Sarnano. Throughout the region, there are cottages and country houses, or country house, the majority of which are open from April to October, where you can stop for short or long stays, buy organic produce and taste the typical dishes of the Marche region. Farms with ancient manor houses, a tangible sign of the past sharecropping farms in full swing, mills original, authentic farmhouses, some luxuriously refurbished, or elegant monasteries and castles, surrounded by beautiful landscapes, surrounded by woods, meadows, vineyards, olive groves, can be the perfect and ideal place for a holiday of discovery, nature and relaxation. 
The territory, in fact, offers a number of solutions, from simple and healthy paths to walk up to more complex routes, ideal for lovers of trekking, mountain-biking and horse, which grow in the hills and surrounding countryside , lakes, rivers, mountains, and other unique natural beauty.For those who want to relax in the spirit and the body, the Marche provide spas, where you can enjoy massages and baths in healing thermal waters. There are many events and pageants that take place in the inner cities, spectacular parties, linked to religious festivals or fairs. Each year, in fact, the Marches back to life the magic of the past, including horse racing and parades, offering eloquent recollections of historical events, which take place in the centers of ancient cities (including the famous Quintana in Ascoli Piceno) and spectacular feasts associated with religious celebrations or Carnival (as in Fano, Ascoli Piceno and Offida). Unchanged over time and some fascinating events linked to specific religious holidays. Suggest ones such as the nativity scenes, among them that of Genga, set in the scenic  Frasassi Gorge and the three most important museums of the Nativity, located within driving distance of each other, in Morrovalle, Macerata and Tolentino.

Driving In Le Marche

Driving In Le Marche | Hideaway Le Marche | Scoop.it

If you are holidaying in Le Marche, a car is a must to explore those out of the way hill-top towns and villages.  Given the geography of the region, roads in Le Marche can be a bit winding and bumpy, and driving through those beautiful hill-top towns and villages can really challenge your manoeuvring and navigational skills. While driving through the mountains is a great scenic experience, the roads can be a little harrowing, and coastal tracks really only have room for one way traffic.

So, in order to make sure you enjoy driving in Le Marche, here are a few things worth knowing:

Located in Le Marche the massive fireball falling from space that 66mln years ago was responsible for killing off the dinosaurs | Hideaway Le Marche | Scoop.it

Tourists flock to Italy to see Michelangelo's David and other iconic hunks of Renaissance stone, but in a trip over spring break, a group of Columbia students got to visit rocks that have shaped the world in even more profound ways. In the limestone outcrops of Italy's Apennine Mountains, geologist Walter Alvarez collected some of the earliest evidence that a massive fireball falling from space some 66 million years ago was responsible for killing off the dinosaurs. Geologists have trekked to the region [Le Marche] since then to study that catastrophic event as well as others imprinted in these rocks. [...]

January is the perfect time to travel in Italy, as long as there is no rain or fog. On sunny days it is almost impossible to sit quietly home. The urge to explore comes over us, and off we go.
The first place on our agenda was Ascoli Piceno. We went there with our guests after January 6th to explore the sales. I love to shop in this city. First the city is absolutely gorgeous, second they have the nicest sales people, and finally they have great clothes, all within walking distance, with no car needed. Driving to Ascoli Piceno from Umbertide we pass the wildest looking territory. It is hard to believe that there will be a town in the mountains, much less one as stunning as this. [...]

The group will be escorted by vintage cars and motorcycles, just to recreate the atmosphere cycling that is usually seen in faded black and white movies. Along the route way there will be a number of dining surprises of food and wine.

"Whilst in Le Marche, if you are coming to stay with us at The Hideaway, whatever you do, do not miss the La Conca experience. Mirela welcomes you to her wonderful agriturismo where you will sample dish after dish of her delicious home cooking.

 

With fresh herbs and vegetables from her beautiful orto, every dish is a taste explosion. A perfect setting, with an amazing host and fabulous food. You really will have a great time.

 

From the ever-changing talking menu, on our visit this time, for antipasti we sampled tasty speck, borlotti bean and garlic pate, a cured meat platter, fried sage leaves in the lightest of batters, fried courgette flowers, homemade cheeses with strawberry and rose petal jam and hot, delicious deep-fried breads so crispy and light.

 

There was still more to come – tasty pasta shells cooked in red wine filled with cottage cheese and chives garnished with borage flowers and pink peppercorns.

 

This was followed by amazing green nettle pasta with sausage cream sauce which was just fabulous, then homemade cannelloni filled with meat and herbs, grilled lamb served with roasted vegetables.

 

Dessert was a delicious type of alcoholic trifle and the whole meal accompanied with as much wine and water as you want. Our experience ended with a wonderful homemade thyme liqueur and coffee.

 

We will certainly be back, as will many of our guests who have sampled the wonders of Mirela and La Conca.

 

La Conca is open every day in the Summer for lunch and dinner, but you need to book in advance as everything is prepared specially for you.

Family holidays in the Marche, Italy | Ask the experts - Telegraph

Family holidays in the Marche, Italy | Ask the experts - Telegraph | Hideaway Le Marche | Scoop.it

Would you recommend the Marche region for a family holiday and what are the must-sees?
Tim Jepson, Italy expert, writes
The Marche is very pretty and has fewer visitors than Umbria, though its not exactly undiscovered these days. While it doesn't have quite the range of cultural highlights and quaint towns as Umbria, a town like Urbino (and nearby Urbania) is the equal of any in Italy for art, charm and history.
I also like Ascoli Piceno, which is also within striking distance of the region's finest scenery, the Monte Sibillini National Park.

For the most part, the Marche's landscape is one of high, rolling hills: high, but not quite mountains. The Sibillini are the exception - in Monte Vettore, they touch 2,476m.
It's a great country to tour by car (head to the Piano Grande, across the border in Umbria; and drive the SS78 road from Ascoli to Sarnano for the views), but the hiking is also excellent - obvious trails, decent maps (Kompass 666 Monti Sibillini) - with everything from easy strolls suitable for children to full-on backpacking.
If you're visiting in summer, virtually the entire coast is lined with small seaside resorts frequented by Italian families. If you want a classic, small-town, Italian seaside holiday, these are perfect. The beaches and sea are safe and good, without ever being spectacular, and while the hotels and towns are mostly modern, many have a small historic core. There's also all the usual ice cream shops, pizzerias, and spots for an evening passeggiata that make up the Italian summer.
