Le Marche is a glorious and unspoilt region of Italy, full of wonderful scenery, lovely beaches, and a plethora of places of interest and historical sites, such as Loreto, the stunning caves of Frasassi, and Villa Prati, which offers a unique holiday villa experience in the heart of the Le Marche region. The fact that it is still a relatively unknown area in comparison to Tuscany and Umbria, is a significant part of its charm, with few souvenir shops, less crowds, and yet so much to see and do, all in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Easily accessible with flights to Ancona or Bologna, Le Marche’s wonderful geographical diversity has led to it being labelled as The Whole of Italy in One Region. It remains a largely undiscovered gem in the heart of Italy, sandwiched between the stunning Apennine Mountains on its western fringes and the beautiful Adriatic coast to the east.

Perhaps, because Le Marche has historically been an isolated region, sheltered as it is from intrusion by its natural mountain borders to the north, south, west, and by the Adriatic Sea to the east, it is only slowly gaining rightful recognition overseas, although the Italians have long favored it for their own holidays. Often overshadowed by its better known and more touristy neighbours, Tuscany and Umbria, and strangely overlooked by the travel media, Le Marche can justifiably claim to be Italy’s very own Garden of Eden and hidden secret at that. Boasting lush greenery and an enchanting mixture of vineyards, olive groves, sunflower fields, abundant woodland, and rivers, which wind their way down to a beautiful coastline, topped off with stunning mountain scenery.


The Marche represents a unique reality in the food and wine sector and can be considered as the synthesis of Italian delicacies grouped on one land only, Italy in one region. In fact, precisely in virtue of the varied and articulate configuration of the territory, dominated by the mountains, and overlooking the sea, different culinary traditions can be found, as a result of the happy combination between nature, traditions, and culture. The Marche boasts a tradition of food and wine made with simple and genuine ingredients, kind tastes, where strong and decisive tasting dishes, mainly with meat, are alternated with dishes of shellfish, blue fish, and fish salad.
