Local Experiences

Beyond Le Marche’s beaches, mountains, outlet shopping, cycling, and vineyards, a world of hidden artisanal treasures await your discovery.

We have partnered with local friends and associations to introduce our guests to what we think makes Le Marche the ideal Italy: the people who live and work here.

If you’re interested in a personal, authentic, and memorable experience, we can arrange it. 

For example:

Put on a bee suit to meet the bees, and taste a variety of honeys at a local apiary. You’ll learn how to spot the queen!

Learn the one way mozzarella is started and the myriad ways you can enjoy it in a demonstration you’ll never forget, without leaving home, as it is performed in our kitchen.

Visit the farmers, wineries, and producers who supply a local restaurant and then enjoy a dinner at the restaurant.

Take a cooking class, in our kitchen, or in a nearby home, and learn the secrets to making pizza, pasta, and other Italian classics.

We are thrilled and honored to collaborate with Marchecraft, an organization dedicated to offering visitors authentic and memorable experiences with local artisans in a variety of industries such as: paper making, ancient rust woodcut printing, weaving, book making, wickerwork, hat making, shoe-making, and many more. Discover farming traditions and enjoy a local meal. Make a traditional tambourine and learn local songs. Create your own leaf-gilded frame. Learn pottery one day and sail on the Adriatic the next. In many activities, you can make your own "Made in Italy" souvenir to take home.
