The property is located approx 40 mins from the closest beach Civitanova, other beaches such as Porto San Georgio and Conero are approx 50 mins to 1hr away. Le Marche is blessed with the wonderful Adriatic coast line, the beaches are clean (blue flag) and child friendly. You can hire sunbeds & umbreallas for the day, for approx €8 per person, or seek out the free beaches & take your own equipment. It is a must to have a fish lunch overlooking the sea while sampling some chilled verdicchio wine (local to the region). There are many bars, pizzerias, fine restaurants and gelaterie (ice cream shops) to explore right along the coast and the night life is worth sampling.
Being just outside the Sibilini national park, a trip to Lago di Fiastra (approx 40 mins) is well worth it to cool off in the summer months, it's far less busy than the coast and the water is very refreshing on a hot summers day. There is a local bar & restaurant for lunch and you can hire pedalos and boats to go out onto the lake.
There is a golf course within a 15-20 min drive. As we are close to the Sibilini national park, there is an abundance of outdoor activites to try such as trekking, horse riding, hiking, mountain biking, hand gliding, balloon rides and skiing & snow boarding in the winter months
