Delicious food, excellent wines, hospitable people, sea and mountains, the Marche is a region to discover
Countryhouse Caravanserraglio begins where the road ends. It is situated
on top of a hill, surrounded by the forest of the National
Park of the Sibillini Mountains in the region Le Marche in Italy.
This is an ideal place for long walks far away from modernity. Next to that there are nearby villages and cities of artistic and cultural importance that are easy to reach by car. At a distance of only two kilometres lies Serrapetrona, a small mountain village that is famed for it's sparkling red wine (Vernaccia), for its pure and healthy water and clean air. Tolentino, San Severino and Camerino, are lovely small cities to visit, mainly built during the Rennaissance. Macerata, the capital of the province, is twenty minutes by car. At Macerata you might want to visit the Arena Sferisterio where music concerts, operas, and ballets are performed by Italian and foreign artists of international fame. Also Macerata's big shoe marked on Wednesdays is worth visiting. In half an hour you can reach the Adriatic sea with it's beautiful beaches. In the hills along the coast you can take a walk at the Park of the Conero
The cities Assisi, Gubbio and Perugia are about one hour of distance by car with the new freeway. A visit to the holy city Loreto is absolutely to be recommended. For a sensation of the miracles of nature you can't miss to see Castalluccio di Norcia (a plateau with thousands of flowers in all the colours of the rainbow) and the stalactitic caves of Frassasi. Also by foot or by mountain bike you can reach places of fascinating beauty. We have some mountainbikes available.
