Local Information

Some of the best beaches in the Adriatic are easily reached within 30 minutes by car. The beaches at Sirolo, Portonovo & Numana within the Conero regional park are a lovely mix of sand and pebbles with crystal clear water. Make the most of the well-equipped lidos and beach restaurants serving delicious sea food, sunloungers and umbrellas or enjoy the free public bathing areas further down the beaches.

The nearest town of Filottranto is so convenient for an evening ‘passagiata’ the Italian way. Have supper in one of the many delicious restaurants or an aperitivo and gelato before taking a stroll around the town.

Osimo is a beautiful and secret town brimming with history. Explore the ancient churches and famous buildings, Roman ruins and underground passages.

Visit the home of one of Italy’s most famous poets, Giacomo Leopardi at Recanati.

Local markets abound here and are the perfect place for picking up delicious local produce. There are so many regional specialities for foodies to discover; pecorino cheese from the mountains, truffles from the forests in autumn and spaghetti ‘on the rocks’ (pasta with baby clams) from the coast.

For opera enthusiasts there is the fabulous open-air opera festival in Macerata during the month of July.

Our View

We had been searching for a house like this for a long time – midway between the Apennines and the Adriatic, the location couldn’t be better. To be within walking distance of a bar and restaurant in rural Italy is such a bonus and with the azure sea only half an hour away… it ticks all the boxes.
Inside, the owners have finished their family home to the highest standard with a mix of traditional and modern accessories dotted with designer pieces from Missoni Home and Paola Lentini. The huge windows encompass the magnificent Le Marche hills- each view is like an oil-painting. The bedrooms are fresh and bright and we love the patterned tile bathrooms.
For families wanting to holiday together the house is split over 3 levels meaning plenty of privacy. Both the ground floor and the 1st floor have generous, light living rooms with fireplaces- great for star gazing or cosying up with a film out of season.
Outside, the wide sweeping lawn is great for children to rush around, with plenty of comfy outdoor seating for adults to relax and mature trees for shade. The shaded outdoor dining area is well-designed and ideal for a long lunch with family or friends. Considering how beautifully furnished this house is, it is still very welcoming and feels like home.

If you have been looking for rural Italy near the sea, stay here – you will love it!
