Amandola seen through the eyes an avid hiker

It was time to visit Italy again.. but away from the usual hotspots you hear of, it was time to head to a beautiful area in the mountains of the Region of Le Marche. A home from home for me, great open countryside, and a perfect greeting of snow tipped mountain tops with lush green and quiet valleys below. […]


Our local town of Amandola explored by Paul Steel, a blogger who came to visit last weekend as part of the Pensieri Fatti A Mano event. Lots of great experiences and demonstrations and a good turnout.

Magnifica Italia: Marche, in video

Ha poco più di un anno e ha fatto parlare di sé e dei suoi difetti. E’ il video della serie Magnifica Italia dedicato alle Marche. Criticato da pochi per aver omesso alcune importanti realtà Regionali, il video, in effetti, è passato quasi inosservato. Merita di essere diffuso, più blasonati progetti hanno comunque mostrato lacune.


A wonderful film all about beautiful Marche and all our stunning area has to offer.

Ten great reasons why you should book your holidays via Marche Owners Direct

The holiday website for your Le Marche farmhouse, apartment or villa rental. Book Italian holidays with confidence direct from the owners & get special offers.

Ten great reasons why you should book your holidays via Marche Owners Direct –

1/ Excellent value – you will not find any of our properties at lower prices elsewhere and they may even cost less via us. Watch out for special Spring saver offers coming soon! These offers will not be available anywhere else.

2/ You book directly with the owner – no middlemen or hidden fees. We are not agents.

3/ We probably have the perfect property for you – with a variety of places from fabulous small hotels, apartments for 2 to 6 people, country villas for small and large groups and organic agriturismos we have places to suit all size parties and pockets. If a pool and wifi is important for you we can help with that too.

4/ We are happy to advise you about the right place for you – do you want to be close to a town or village? Do you want to be a short drive to the beach? Is the house child friendly? Do you need seclusion in a peaceful place? Are you wondering about a wedding here? Do you want to go hiking or biking in a stunning national park? Just give us a call and we’ll try to help.

5/ You can trust us – we all know each other and can verify our places are real – no need to worry about scammers.

6/ We know our areas very well – we can tell you about the best restaurants, secret picnic spots, our favorite beaches, when the local markets are held, how to find amazing bargains in the outlet shops, we give you our top tips and insider knowledge to make sure you have the best possible holiday. Between us we have over 200 years of experience gathering this information – we are delighted to share it with you.

7/ We have loads of ideas about things to do – from cooking classes to quadbiking, horseriding, mountain biking, paraponting and hang gliding, opera going, clubbing on the beach, wine tasting and buying, foraging for wild foods, boat trips, shopping for designer goods at massive discounts – whether you are after a really active holiday or a totally indulgent one we can help.

8/ If you are thinking about buying a place for yourself here we can point you in the direction of agents we trust and advise about the whole process – we have all been through this ourselves.

9/ We may be small but we ARE beautifully formed – with the big boy rental sites becoming unwieldy in the amount of properties advertised – many of them by agents taking a slice of 10-20% on top of the true cost of your holiday – isn’t it cool to be dealing with a grassroots local group who really care about their guests? We have the places that are ‘the needle in the haystack’ to save you days of researching!

10/ Most importantly we are all passionate about our part of Italy and genuinely want to help our guests love it as much as we do, we will bend over backwards to help you have a brilliant time here.

La guida Touring Club inserisce la città di Ascoli Piceno fra le città imperdibili da visitare nel 2015


How fantastic to read that our wonderful Ascoli Piceno has been

Treasure chest of art and culture, Ascoli Piceno is a city yet to be discovered. Away from the main flow of mass tourism, the city has managed to preserve its authenticity over time: a jewel of travertine that still shines its former glory!

Known abroad than for its beauty for its food and wine, according to the editors of the guides touring the city of hundred towers has an intrinsic potential yet to be expressed. Its plot of rue and towers develops in plain in a few hundred meters and can be visited on foot or by bike.

The succession of churches, palaces, museums trace the symbol of different ages who have crossed and marked the history of the provincial capital. In its precious historical center, Ascoli Piceno in fact preserves intact traces of the medieval past that, in Piazza Arringo is expressed again in all its beauty.

Praised for its beautiful Piazza del Popolo , ideal setting for cocktails and coffee enjoyed in the company lends itself to be discovered and admired each time under a different guise.
