As featured as a personal recommendation in Frances Mayes' (Under the Tuscan Sun) new Italian travel guide.

For an incredible stay in beautiful Le Marche, Tenuta Castelletto offers luxury, authenticity and a wonderful range of optional high-end services, only a short drive from the delightful sandy beaches of this remarkable coastline.

This magnificent eight-acre estate, with glorious gardens, two swimming pools, a private tennis court, yoga studio and views towards the sea, features two exquisite homes which can sleep up to 20 guests across ten bedrooms.

First of all, the impressive villa with its six en suite bedrooms – expect stunning interiors, elegant living spaces and floor-to-ceiling windows with spectacular views of Le Marche landscapes and the sea. Find contemporary features from individually controlled air-conditioning to Smart TVs and Bose speakers. Designed with both classic and modern style, this chic villa is sure to impress you in every way.

A decadent spa is the perfect place to relax with its Swedish sauna, hot tub and steam room whilst the state-of-the-art gym looks out towards the Adriatic. Soak up the sun on the private terrace or dip into the heated swimming pool looking out to the olive groves and ancient vineyards. Find a quiet spot in the villa’s garden surrounded by the aromas of rosemary and verbena.

Just next door is the delightful casa, connected to the villa via their gardens. This is where the owner’s stay when they are in Italy and it’s been beautifully designed as a home-from-home with yet more gorgeous interiors and picturesque views. The casa’s four inviting bedrooms (one of which is a pretty annexe) feature luxurious beds, restful décor and modern en suite bathrooms.

Follow the little footpaths through the vast gardens and discover the tenuta’s second amazing swimming pool – a place to truly relax on the poolside terrace, perhaps with a cocktail prepared in the bar at the spacious pool house which also features a second gym and studio space. Play tennis on the flood-lit court amongst the 400 olive trees, relax in the brand-new air-conditioned yoga studio then gather together with your friends and family to feast in the shaded pagoda, near the pizza oven, barbecue and outdoor kitchen, with ample space for everyone with magical vistas.

Take advantage of the tenuta’s concierge service, making it possible to arrange optional extras such as yoga or gym instructors, babysitters, cookery lessons, a private chef and tailor-made experiences and excursions. There’s even a bespoke VIP service which you can book which includes extras such as prosecco on arrival, a continental breakfast each morning, daily housekeeping and other lovely touches such as fresh flowers and life-style magazines.

If you can bring yourselves to leave this beautiful estate, there is so much to explore in Le Marche. Close by there’s a little village with historic lanes and wonderful views or head down to the coast, just a ten-minute drive away (or cycle-ride!) to discover sandy beaches, summer lidos, great shopping and excellent restaurants.

Experience the spectacular beauty of the Riviera del Conero, head south to the brilliant beaches of the Riviera delle Palme or explore hidden hilltop villages and historic towns so typical of Le Marche. Olive oil and wine-tasting as well as other culinary experiences can be arranged, as can summer boat trips or autumn truffle-hunting; this alluring region of Le Marche offers something for everyone.

  • The caretakers house is also within the grounds of Casa Castelletto, yet they remain respectful of guests' value privacy

Just 40km south of Ancona, in the stunning Le Marche countryside, Tenuta Castelletto enjoys an enviable setting amongst beautiful hills and vineyards, just a ten-minute drive to the sea.

A pretty little hilltop borgo is just over 1km away where you will find a couple of places to drink or eat, a grocery shop selling some essentials and a small bar that makes the most amazing home-made ice-cream that you can buy to take back to your home. Just outside the village, a short walk away, is a good pizzeria with pretty views (it’s usually a good idea to reserve a table here in advance).  

Just 5km away by car (or bike following a cycling trail downhill from nearby the tenuta) is a delightful seaside town where you will find plenty of shops, great restaurants as well as a long stretch of mainly sandy beach either side of a little fishing port. There’s a picturesque promenade that backs the beach with a walking and cycling lane – wander along the coastline, choose a beachside restaurant or enjoy one of the many gelaterias in the warm Italian sun. As well as summer lidos offering umbrellas and chairs to rent for the day, there are also public spaces on the beach – soak up the relaxed, family vibe in this charming Adriatic resort.

Le Marche coastline features the highest number of Blue Flag beaches in mainland Italy and there are plenty close by to explore. Those seeking incredible landscapes should drive north to the idyllic Riviera del Conero where you can discover stunning scenery, watersports, golf, horse-riding, pretty villages and wild nature – some of the coves are only accessible by boat. Further south you will find the brilliant beaches of the Riviera delle Palme with lovely towns and villages such as Grottammare, Pedaso and Cupra Marittima, all within an hour.

The countryside also offers a wealth of opportunities to explore as you come across old towns and picturesque hilltop villages. Start in Macerata (26km), home to the Sferisterio opera festival each August whilst Fermo (32km) and Loreto (20km) are also nearby. Other historic gems to be explored include Ascoli Piceno (85km) with one of the most magnificent squares in Italy and the lovely town of Sarnano (60km), classified as one of Italy’s Borghi Più Belli.

There seems to be endless activities in Le Marche, from hiking, cycling or mountain biking through spectacular landscapes to horse-riding along idyllic beaches or in the Sibillini mountains. You’ll also find white-water rafting, paragliding as well as a large choice of watersports and diving.

The villa concierge can arrange tailor-made itineraries and activities whether you are looking for personalised tours, wine-tasting experiences, culinary themed visits, truffle-hunting and so much more.

Le Marche, a hidden gem in the heart of Italy, is a region that encapsulates the essence of both tradition and natural beauty. Nestled between the Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea, Le Marche offers an authentic Italian experience that is often overshadowed by its more famous neighbours. With its charming villages, rich history, and diverse landscapes, Le Marche is a destination that beckons those seeking a quieter, more authentic Italian experience.


Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Families will love the location of Tenuta Castelletto with its sea and countryside views and so many attractions close by. This area offers brilliant beaches, plenty of green space and little children’s parks as well as plenty of do for all ages.

It’s only 5km to the local seaside town – look out for Italian families enjoying the many beachside restaurants, lidos and gelaterias in the summer and at weekends. The beaches here are mainly sandy and they are backed by a picturesque promenade with a lane for walking and one for cycling. Watch games of beach volleyball, find a local pizzeria for lunch or choose a beach club where you can relax by the sea (there are also plenty of public parts of the beach too).

There are many other areas of the beautiful Le Marche coastline which features the most blue-flag beaches in mainland Italy. Riviera del Conero is known for its natural beauty with some coves only accessible by boat and it’s also a great place for watersports (sailing, kite-surfing, canoeing etc), horse-riding and lovely walks. Further south, the Riviera delle Palme also boasts amazing sandy beaches and fantastic facilities.

For a day away from the sea, another great day out (and a good way to escape the summer heat) is a visit to the caves at Grotte di Frasassi, around an hour away – it could also be combined with a trip to the interesting Temple of Valadier in the same area.
