Truffles time in Le Marche

Le Marche is the heart of white truffle season, which means one thing: it’s time to program a tuber hunting.

Ancient Romans believed that the truffle was created when lightning struck damp earth.

We know that the small tuber grows underground in the wild forests of northern and central Italy.

In Le Marche we maintain the magic of the truffle, referring to the earthy and aromatic ingredient as “a diamond of the kitchen,” or “the gem of poor lands.”

Truffles cannot be planted or tamed, so each variety is only available a few months out of the year. These fragrant fungi taste best fresh, so plan to enjoy white truffles from September to December, winter black truffles from December to early March and summer black from May to August.

The best friend of truffle is a good wine: I prefer Rosso Piceno, a full-bodied red wine from Le Marche; other friends prefer Verdicchio, the most red of Italian white wines.

Sassoferrato … landscape in art

Giovanni Battista Salvi da Sassoferrato (August 25, 1609 – August 8, 1685), also known as Giovanni Battista Salvi, was an Italian painter, known for his commitment to Raphael's style and for his Madonnas. He is often referred to only by the town of his birthplace (#Sassoferrato), as was customary in his time, and for example seen with da Vinci and Caravaggio.
He was born in our village Sassoferrato, in the Marche region of central Italy, half-way between Rome and Florence, east of Apennines. Frequently, he represented our landscape in his paintings: our mountains, our hills, our valley and our castle.
There are over three hundred works by Sassoferrato in public collections throughout the world, including almost all of his extant drawings in the British Royal Collection at Windsor Castle. In Paris' Louvre you can find a Museum room dedicated to Salvi's paintings.
Some Salvi's works are still in Sassoferrato Museum or Churchs. You could also find in Jesi or Perugia, 40min by car from our villa.
So, what are you waiting to come to visit ??? 😉

Terra da sognare, terra da vivere

“Appennino umbro-marchigiano, terre da sogno che ho la fortuna di poter percorrere nella realtà 💚” cit. Claudio Vitaletti

Sì !!!! la fortuna di percorrere queste terre, ma aggiungerei anche la fortuna di viverle.

La nostra è una proposta di TURISMO ATTIVO, per chi ama ricevere adrenalina da un territorio poco antropizzato e ancora per certi versi selvaggio; oppure, di TURISMO SLOW per chi preferisce esperienze più sensoriali, magari gustando un calice di Verdicchio o un salame dop di Fabriano
