Gourmet Le Marche & Truffle Hunting from €1900 / per person

When you visit Le Marche you will inevitably be struck by the wonderful bucolic landscape, the rich
cultural heritage, the historic architecture and the quality of the local produce.

But we would like to help you get under Le Marche’s skin, meeting local artisans and experiencing the true rural life. The economy of the region has traditionally been based on agriculture and the fantastic products made by local artisans. Most of these artisans work for small family businesses that have handed down skills from one generation to the next, many still work by hand and, despite the demands of the global marketplace, there is still relatively little mechanization.
 
With the help of our friends who were born and raised in the area and are extremely passionate about the environment and the traditional Le Marche way of life we are pleased to offer you activities such hunting for truffles and witnessing how local delicacies are produced as well as tasting them to allow you to experience and better understand why life here has remained unchanged for centuries.
