One of the most typical but undervalued accommodation in Le Marche is the "Rifugio di Montagna" the mountain hut. In Le Marche this kind of hospitality building is located in the mountains, sometimes accessible only by foot, intended to provide food and shelter to mountaineers, climbers and hikers. Mountain huts are usually operated by a Cai Club (Alpine Club) or some organization dedicated to hiking or mountain recreation.
Mountain huts can provide a range of services, starting with shelter and simple sleeping berths. Some, particularly in remote areas, are not staffed, this is the case of the Rifugio Vettore. In Le Marche most of the rifugi have a least a manager on site while other have staff which prepare meals and drinks and can provide other services. The best Mountain Huts provide lectures, sell clothing and small items. Most of the Mountain huts allow anybody to access their facilities, although some require reservations.
In most of the case Rifugi are in reality normal and comfortable farm stay located in the Sibylline Mountains.
Here the most complete list of this type of accommodation suitable in every season.
