If you were to ask 25 regular visitors to Italy what Le Marche
is, then perhaps 5 would know where it is situated, and 3 would be able
to recall some place names. You could therefore easily be fooled into
thinking that Le Marche is not really a region suited for vacation. On
the contrary! Le Marche is put more and more in the spotlight. For
example at Vacation and SecondHome conventions and in the media (Le
Marche is a frequent feature on television broadcasts).
Consistent rumour is spreading that ‚ÄúLe Marche is the new
Tuscany‚Äù. We in Le Marche, must admit, are proud of this praise. Proud
mainly because for years Le Marche has always had to look up to the
mighty Tuscany in the west. Admittedly, the comparison of Le Marche to
that of Tuscany does not do it justice. Le Marche is not Tuscany nor is
it the ‚Äònew‚Äô Tuscany. Le Marche is Le Marche, and that by itself is
something to be proud of!
With us in Le Marche you find a perfect mix of rest, space,
culture, culinary highlights, warm hospitality, and a sublime and
versatile natural environment.
One of the many charming aspects about Le Marche is that
everything is still in its right proportion. You will not find maddening
crowds of tourists swarming around a popular tourist attraction in
search for that perfect snapshot. Instead you find undiscovered rustic
towns with unspoiled castles, where for ‚Ç¨ 1,10 you can still enjoy a
creamy cappuccino on the central square just under the castle wall.
All these types of villages lay dreamily amongst the rolling
hills. As you move inwards away from the coast, the hills give way to
impressive mountainous terrain. The vegetation varies enormously. Near
the coast you will find plenty of land fit for agriculture. More into
the interior these agricultural fields are accompanied by luscious
grapevines and olive trees and scattered woodlands. Here you don‚Äôt need a
lot of luck to catch a glimpse of the many kinds of large game. Deer
and wild pigs are abundant here in Le Marche.
The inhabitants of Le Marche have a somewhat coarse friendliness
about them, which at first glance seems like they intend to keep you at
bay. You quickly discover this to be far from the truth when you
approach them with a few words of Italian. A fountain of hearty
conversation will subsequently be poured upon you and they will almost
seems to want to adopt you into their family. Especially when you
indulge in culinary topics of conversation! After all, the love from the
people of Le Marche passes through the stomach. And believe you me when
we say that their stomachs are given a lot of love! Just one glance at
the delicious and plentiful produce available all year round is enough
to make your mouth water. One of the most renowned culinary treat in
this region is of course the truffle. In some parts of Le Marche this
specialty is even being cultivated.
In short, Le Marche is more than capable in providing the right
ingredients for a fantastic vacation: beautiful natural environment,
oceans of rest, friendly locals, and divine food for an honest price. We
are proud to invite you to come and discover Le Marche for yourselves
and will happily lend a hand in doing so.
