Go Slow in Untouched Italy 

Recently voted as the 2nd next best region to travel to worldwide, Le Marche is one of Italy’s most unspoiled and picturesque regions, often called ‘the best of Italy in one region’. This enchanting area is nestled between the dramatic Sibillini mountains and the coastline of the Adriatic Sea. You can reach the coast within a 5-minute drive and the incredible mountains are only a 30-minute drive. Situated in the Eastern part of Italy, Le Marche offers all the natural beauty and rich cultural heritage of Tuscany, but without the crowds. It has its own unique personality and an authentic way of life, where the seasons lead the daily rhythms of the people and you can set your pace.

Perfect for the foodie, adventurer, culturalist, or wellness seekers, these authentic experiences will enlighten each of your passions. With its endless coastlines of clean, quiet protected beaches, breathtaking mountain ranges, and charming historic towns, Le Marche ticks all the boxes for those seeking an authentic, sustainable Italian escape. Welcome to Italy - authentic and untouched.


Sustainable travel 

A lot of effort and consideration has been put into creating a slow-living retreat. Here are a few highlights of what has been implemented to accomplish this: 

Le March is an untouched Region, by venturing off the tourist trail, you too can help the over-tourism issues that beautiful cities in Italy are facing. you won't miss the crowds when you arrive, but instead, you will get to see the best of Italy rolled up into one region with its mountains, sea and rolling hills, and incredible culinary delights, but most of all its authenticity.

Supporting the local community, they strongly believe it's important to maintain the integrity of Le Marche, so they always work with our local partners to ensure tourism in Le Marche improves the destination for the benefit of both the local people whilst making it a great place to visit.

Open all year round: Creating sustainable jobs throughout the season helps the local population, and eases over-tourism. As Le Marche is a great place to visit all year round, there are authentic experiences on offer that complement both the seasonal differences and what our varied region has to offer.
