Le Marche Bed and Breakfast Guide

Tucked away in the hidden corners of Le Marche you will find some of the most wonderful bed & breakfasts and lovely farmhouse holidays. Our aim is to discover the best of these. We will never feature more than five or six, they need to be really special to make it onto our shortlist. Let us begin our trip...

Country House Ca' Virginia near Urbino

Ca Virginia - Le Marche

Very special indeed, set in perhaps the most beautiful countryside to be found anywhere in the region. What was once a 15th century farmhouse is now one of the best places to stay in the whole of Le Marche Italy. For more click here.

Villa Fortezza - near Ancona

Al Fresco DiningBreakfast "al fresco" at Villa Fortezza

This utterly charming Marche country house is located in the countryside very near to the lovely town of Ascoli Piceno, but a world away from the hustle and bustle of life in town. They even offer cooking courses and a fabulous tour of local wineries which you'll remember for a long time. Discover the Villa Fortezza here.

Recommended by Site Visitors

Villa Castellani

Villa Castellani

Amalia recommended the Villa Castellani. I have to say I fully agree with her. After reading her comments I made a point of visiting while in the area and this is truly a gem. Fantastic food, a friendly atmosphere and a wonderful setting were all words that Amalia used in her mail to me and I agree with her 100%. The only thing wrong (for the owners) is that they are charging way to little.

Hotel Centrale di San Ginesio

San Ginesio

Maya recommends the Hotel Centrale di San Ginesio:

"It's run by a guy called Gianni. I have just finished renovating a house in San Ginesio and am going to be living there this summer. During the renovation I stayed at the Centrale. It is comfortable and welcoming. I would ask for a room overlooking the square - you might get woken early by people starting their day but I love the view. Alternatively the rooms at the back overlook the Sibillini Mountains."

NB: The Albergo Centrale is currently closed for renovations as a result of the earthquake that occurred a few years back. If you'd like to stay in the area though the lovely Agriturismo Agra Mater, in the countryside nearby, is a good choice -  lovely rooms, great food and views too.

  • The Frasassi Caves and the Church Inside

    The Frasassi caves are incredible but for me the most awesome site is the Temple of Valadier built in a huge cavern. I have never seen anything like it!
