Le Marche Italy Restaurant Review

Agritourism with pool in Le Marche

The Ristorante Agriturismo Pietra Rosa, nestled  in the countryside outside of Urbino, is a working  Italian farm, in a part of the Le Marche region that is rich in history and tradition.

The farm also offers Italian style farm holidays in five rooms that they have available to guests. Definitely worth considering as you'll no doubt want to enjoy a good sampling of their excellent wines with lunch or dinner. Rather don't drive but spend a night or two here.

The setting is glorious, with pristine countryside all around and the towers of San Marino and San Leo (view my guide to this really lovely town) not far away.

A few days spent relaxing here is always time well spent. Otherwise just enjoy the walks in the area but watch out for the wild boar!! Actually, they are more scared of you than you are of them and they are rather elusive. You'll be lucky to even see one.

Great food in Le Marche

Prefer not to meet any wild boar? Then rather simply relax by the swimming pool and enjoy the beautiful view across wooded hills and picturesque farmland.

The food is traditional local Marche farm fare, nothing very sophisticated but sometimes that is nice - as Leonardo da Vinci said: simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Everything from the bread, which is a meal in itself, to the desserts is prepared on the farm from organic ingredients grown on the farm itself

If an ingredient isn't available they will source from a nearby farm or not at all. All the cooking here is done with an eye to preserving local le Marche recipes and traditions.

Many recipes are those that have been in the owner’s family for generations. The food is wholesome and traditional farm style cooking – no pretensions or airs and graces here – you’ll just eat well, fairly cheaply and in abundance. I love it!
