This apartment are located in a fascinating surrounding. Perfectly placed in an old town area on top of a hill above the village.
The terrace is wonderful and the rooms are fresh and well equipped. After a week in Tuscany we wanted a couple of days close to a beach, then this stay was perfect.
Giordano, the agent for Jasmijn, was really helpful and made us feel welcome. I can absolutely recommend this apartment it really exceeded our expectations.
Für Familien mit Kindern Ü 10 und Lust auf Bewegung grandios.
About the area: Marche (pronounced Le Markay) is a wonderfully undiscovered part of Italy even though it is the direct neighbor of Tuscany and Umbria. It borders the beginning of Southern Italy.
The beaches at Cupra and Grottammare and San Benedetto along the coast are broad and sandy and swimming is safe rather than dramatic. It is possible to have wind surfing courses; there is a tennis club along the beach and if you prefer indoor swimming at Olympic size, newly built indoor pool at Grottammare.
In the North at the Conero peninsula the landscape is more rugged and a national park lies above the popular beach with its several restaurants.
