The Marches is a region in the eastern part of Central Italy and lies between the Adriatic Sea and the Apennines. The region is divided into six provinces. These include the provincial capital Ancono and Fermo, Ascoli Piceno, Maerata, Pesaro and Urbino. The sea on one side and the mountains on the other means the landscape is worth discovering. So far spared from mass tourism, the Marches offers you a very special experience. Our holiday homes in the Marches are located partly by the sea, but also in the interior of the region, so that there is something for every taste. They are characterised by numerous amenities, such as outdoor pools, large gardens and spacious rooms. Despite modern luxury, thanks to the classical architecture of stone and wood, the typical Italian charm of the houses has been preserved. The cottages offer space for families or smaller groups between 6 and 18 people.
Holiday home in the Marches by the sea
Ancona, the capital of the province of the Marches, is about 120 kilometres away from Rimini. The small harbour city connects Italy with Greece, Croatia and Turkey but is still very relaxed. Behind the capital lies the Conero-Riviera, a beautiful road along the coast. Long sandy beaches invite you to spend the day at the sea or to end the evening there at sunset. The holiday homes in the Marches are partly by the sea and the beach is within walking distance. The private pool or the garden offers a beautiful view over the sea. It is therefore possible to avoid tourism completely and still enjoy the sea view. Beside Ancona, there are further bathing resorts along the Conero-Riviera like Portonovo or Sirolo. The beaches are often framed by steep chalk cliffs and conjure up a wonderful panorama for photo enthusiasts.
Holiday home in the hilly landscape of the Marches
In addition to the beaches and the breathtaking sea view, the Marches region offers other special characteristics. The area around Jesi is famous for its white wine. The vineyards around the town offer the opportunity to explore the area on foot and to discover the flavour of the region through wine tasting. The Marches is also famous for its many theatres. In Jesi you will find one of the most splendid examples in the city centre. The Teatro Pergolesi impresses with its gilded balustrades as well as its painted ceilings and can also be admired independently from opera or theatre performances. Our holiday homes in the Marches are not far from Jesi and a day trip by car is worthwhile. The grottos of Frasassi are just as amazing. Over about 18 kilometres, the limestone walls and columns shimmer light pink and are definitely worth a souvenir photo. Crystal lakes make the place a true nature experience.
Rent a holiday home in the truffle stronghold of the Marches
In addition to the famous wine from the region around Jesi, there is another culinary highlight in the Marches. The truffle stronghold Acqualagna offers the fine delicacy all year round. In summer the black truffle has its moment, while the winter is the season of the white truffle. You can enjoy the fresh truffles in small restaurants all around the city. If you would like to go on a truffle hunt yourself, you can book one of the local trips and track down this noble delicacy with a trained guide and a truffle dog. From the holiday homes, you can easily reach all destinations by car. If you are planning a trip to Acqualagna, you definitely should not miss the Gola del Furlo rock massif. The landscape backdrop is breathtaking and shows Italy from a beautiful side. After a busy day of excursions, you can retreat in the cosy holiday house or holiday villa and cool off in the private pool. Enjoy in the evening regional delicacies on your terrace accompanied by a local wine. Some of our holiday villas also offer the option of a chef, who will be happy to introduce you to the culinary highlights of the Marches region.
