Casa delle Querce is uniquely situated only a short walk from San Ginesio whilst still being a totally private and rural location. The town of San Ginesio with its wonderful main square (Piazza A. Gentili) manages to offer most services including a small supermarket, butchers, grocers, bakers, bars, restaurants, etc) whilst preserving a uniquely tranquil and charismatic atmosphere. The walk to town followed by a morning coffee in the Bar Centrale (owned by our nearest neighbours who live in the house at the top of the long private drive to our house) is a perfect start to the day.
As well as its proximity to San Ginesio, Casa delle Querce is within easy striking distance of both the mountains and the sea. There are numerous opportunities to enjoy the beautiful beaches of the Adriatic or for the nature-lovers, hiking, mountain-biking and horse riding in the nearby Sibillini National Park. Also in the National Park and only a 30 minute drive away is the beautiful Lake Fiastra situated in the heart of the mountains and providing opportunities for swimming, canoeing and sun bathing on the lake’s beaches.
The numerous picturesque hilltop villages within an easy drive offer the chance to wander the charismatic narrow streets or visit the many churches and museums.
The area has many inexpensive local restaurants. These provide a welcoming atmosphere and produce delicious local dishes. A list of recommended restaurants is provided in the house book.
Le Marche also caters for wine lovers with the wine producing regions of Matelica, Jesi and Mount Conero all within an hour’s drive of the house. Here one can enjoy tasting the white verdicchios and the full flavoured reds produced from montepulciano and sangiovese grapes.
