All the beauties of the Marche,
from the Conero Riviera to Frasassi

The Conero Riviera is rich in naturalistic, cultural and historical beauties and you will certainly find interesting things to see and do with your family or friends, satisfying all your needs.

From the famous Numana, Sirolo and Porto Recati beaches up to the more exclusive ones of Portonovo and Due Sorelle, you can enjoy the sea in all its nuances, from the most relaxing to the most adventurous activities, such as a horseback ride on the paths of Monte Conero.

Loreto, Recanati, Osimo are cities that are only a few kilometres from the farmhouse, where you will be able to discover many curiosities and historical-artistic beauties.

The house of the poet Giacomo Leopardi in Recanati, with its endless library, and the Basilica of the Holy House in Loreto, a destination for pilgrims from all over Europe. In Osimo you can discover a dense network of underground caves, still today shrouded in an aura of mystery.

You cannot miss the Frasassi Caves, a unique spectacle in the world within the Gola della Rossa and Frasassi regional natural park. The largest underground cave complex in Europe has been continuously evolving for over 190 million years and today part of it is accessible to all. Inside the karst cavities you can admire natural sculptures incredible in shape and size: Abisso Ancona, the first part of the cave that appeared to its discoverers, is so large that it could contain the Milan Cathedral.

Everywhere you can taste the typical dishes of the Marche: meat or fish, the culinary tradition of the area and the different local wines will win you over.

Even shopping enthusiasts will be satisfied. In fact, in the province of Macerata and Fermo you will find several outlets of clothing, shoes and accessories of famous Made in Italy brands.
