The apartment is excellent and just perfect for two people. Paul and Julie, the owners, were so welcoming and Paul even came rushing out with a large umbrella when we arrived in torrential rain (the first rain in months). We enjoy doing our own cooking and it was lovely to have such good, virtually new, facilities. The views from the patio are wonderful. Le Marche is a very interesting area to explore and we enjoyed trips to hilltop villages and the coast. Our favourite visit was to Urbino, a busy, bustling, University town with wonderful buildings and architecture. We are in agreement with all the fabulous reviews. Thank you Julie and Paul for the lovely hospitality.
