Undiscovered Italy

Discover your own Italian paradise

Set in the rolling hills of Filottrano in Le Marche, Casa Sant’Elia offers quiet luxury in an unspoiled corner of Italy

From white-pebble beaches and cliff-backed Adriatic bays to medieval hill towns and snow-capped peaks, Le Marche is one of Italy's least-known treasures. The best of Italy wrapped up in one region, perfectly situated and within easy driving distance of most places around Italy.Le Marche, situated between the Apennines and the Adriatic coast, this hilly region boasts a string of exquisite provincial towns. Chief among them is Urbino, whose beautifully preserved centro storico (historic centre) recalls its heyday as a Renaissance cultural centre and birthplace of the artist Raphael. Ascoli Piceno is another highlight, a refined, animated town famous for its fantastic food. Music fans should make a beeline for Macerata whose hilltop centre rings to the sound of opera each summer.
