Le Marche, the Italian region where you can still find places where time has stood still.
Le Marche is in central Italy bordered by the Adriatic Sea to the east and the Apennine mountains to the west, it is one of the prettiest, greenest and most civilized corners of Italy. It has hundreds of charming pink and ochre brick medieval villages, loads of beaches, 2 beautiful Renaissance cities, Ascoli Piceno and Urbino, and stunning patchwork hills and valleys that lead from the sea to the snow peaked Sibillini Mountains, one of the highest ranges of the Apennines.
Come join us for an extraordinary and memorable holiday in this little discovered area of Italy, and thus unspoilt by mass tourism. There are folk festivals to attend, outdoor concerts in pretty piazzas, churches, history and art, food and wine to taste, traditional crafts to discover, markets to attend, olive oil and wine harvests to participate in, concerts in small restored theatres and lots of sports and activities.
Of course, one can just relax and take in the exquisite quiet and beauty of the countryside.
Agriturismo Lavanda Blu is ideally situated to explore the area as we are only 20 min. from the sea, 60 min. to Ascoli Piceno, 40 minutes to the mountains, and there are scores of things to do and see within a 20 minute drive.
