We have just returned from a week at Casa San Ruffino and can't wait to return to this lovely place. The Country House itself is exceptional. Very tastefully refurbished and each room has stunning views of the mountains and surrounding countryside. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms (which was still a very good size) and had doors that opened to make the most of the view. It really is an idyllic setting. We spent quite a bit of time at the pool and were quite often the only ones there. Claire and Ray were fantastic hosts. Very warm and welcoming. The area really does feel quite remote when you first arrive, but the information that they provide of the restaurants and the general area, really help you to make the most of your stay. We went to several of the restaurants that Ray and Claire suggested and each one was fantastic. Great food in stunning settings. We even made a slightly longer journey to Senigallia to one of two Michelin starred restaurants in the area, and again were not disappointed.
Le Marche itself is a lovely place. We were there at the start of August and although it was getting a little busier, everywhere except the beach was pretty quiet. We found Le Marches beaches much nicer than those on the Tuscan coast. We also went to Lake Fiastra for the day, which was recommended by Claire, which again, was absolutely beautiful. One week wasn't long enough to experience everything that the area has to offer, so we will definitely be back!
