Make a holiday rental, home or villa in Marche, Italy your home away from home

Marche (Le Marche), Tuscany and Umbria are the three regions making up central Italy. A Marche villa offers all that is best about central Italy, with sun, sea, stunning beaches and dramatic mountains dominate, and where the skiing, climbing, cycling, hang gliding and walking available are exceptional. It lies between the Adriatic Sea and the towering peaks of the Apennine mountains, and much of the Marche province is untouched and unspoilt by the mass tourist market.

Places to holiday in Marche, Italy

Urbino is the jewel in the Le Marche province’s crown. It is a haven for lovers of great Italian architecture and art, with the famous skyline dominated by the twin towers of the palace, and the Centro Storico been rewarded with a place on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Much of the best art can be found in the Renaissance palaces built by Duke Federico da Montefeltro. A walk up the famous Monte Catria gives the best mountain views I have encountered.

The beautiful marble paved main square in Ascoli Piceno, the capital of Le Marche, is well worth seeing, and taking a house in Le Marche here provide a holiday which will never be forgotten for its beauty, even if art and architecture don’t usually excite you!

If you are looking for property or a holiday rental in Le Marche’s coastal regions, Pesaro boasts an exceptional mix of beach resort facilities, genuine Italian lifestyles and fabulous art heritage. Sirolo has to be the prettiest beach resort though, nestled on the Conero Peninsula.

Things to do in the Marche, Italy

Le Marche provides a taste of real Italy, with welcoming locals, fabulous art and genuine Italian cuisine. The 180 km of Adriatic coastline is a beautiful destination for beach holidays too, and there are options for lively bustling beach resorts, or secluded, peaceful beautiful cove beaches. Whatever your choice of beach, a house in Le Marche will provide you with exactly what you are after.

The mountainous regions, especially in the south, are some of the most scenic places to walk in the whole of Italy. The wild mountains are often capped with snow late into the spring, and a visit to the limestone caves of Frasassi Caves will leave you in awe. The footpaths and cycle routes in the Sibillini National Park are adventurous and take you deep into the Italian countryside, and you will certainly not be disappointed by the nature.

Masterpieces of Renaissance art and architecture are everywhere, and accessible from all of the Marche villas and other properties in Le Marche.

Weather in Marche, Italy

Le Marche is a temperate region, with hot summers, with average temperatures reaching 25°C in July and August, but winters are cold, ensuring great skiing conditions, with temperatures dipping below freezing occasionally in November until February, so taking a Marche villa for the winter will ensure good skiing.

For 6 weeks this was our home while waiting for our house purchase to complete. Spacious enough for our two dogs and us, the accommodation is on the first floor level and is comfortable and very clean. It is in an elevated position and has large doors leading onto balconies with views of the surrounding farm land. The garden is totally fenced and there are good walks along white roads in several directions and shops also within walking distance. The accommodation is well equipped with a good sized fridge and washing machine, essential for an extended stay. The air conditioning unit also gave a pleasant relief from the extraordinary hot weather experienced this year. The owners live locally and are very attentive, providing information and assistance where needed. They generously provided us with home-grown vegetable and treated us to a lovely evening in their cantina where we sampled their own wines and local foods. Casa Il Gelso is close to Senigallia and handy for the beach and is only about 20 minutes from Ancona airport. A good location to stay for striking out to the lovely hill top towns and villages around the area where there is plenty going on throughout the summer. Also we were fortunate enough to be around for the wine tasting event at Morro d’Alba and had a fantastic evening tasting wines and learning about the Lacrima grape variety. With places in short supply that will take dogs this is a very good find.

The house is great, clean, comfortable, very well maintained and very well equipped with all that is needed for a good stay. The pool is of a good size, very well maintained too and cleaned regularly (there is a pool hoover on site). We were three families with small children (3-8yrs) and the house was big enough (4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms + WC near the pool) for us and we found it generally very convenient and comfortable. We all loved spending time in the pool! The views are beautiful and there are lots of lovely hilltop towns to visit in the area. The distance to the beach is about 30 min by car, but we visited the one recommended by the owner, in Porto San Giorgio with beautiful sandy beach, where we rented sunbeds and umbrellas in one of many seafront restaurants. Port San Giorgio is approximately 50min drive away from the house, but is very much worth it, especially since we chose to get there via hilly, picturesque road (returning via motorway though :)). There are few local shops nearby, so daily supplies are not an issue. We really recommend Gelatteria in Passo Ripe San Ginesio (literally 5 min from the house), as the ice creams there were truly delicious. Local Pizzeria is also very good! We visited many places in Me Marche and Umbria regions, but the two top places we really recommend to visit are Assisi and Loreto. Beautiful! But there are many, many more to see. The only one improvement we thought could help would be adding a few portable air con units to bedrooms, as due to very high temperatures outside, it was very hot in the bedrooms, especially on 2nd floor. But taking that we traveled to Italy for the Sun and for the nice weather, we are happy that the weather was so great and that is not complaining, just a kind suggestion! :) Overall fabulous stay! We recommend the house fully and are looking forward to visit again! Thank you, Barrie!
