Casa Tartufo e Mare
Charm in Le Marche
Walking and cycling
Do you like sports? The rolling hills here and there with a vicious cowl (or climb) is a tough challenge, especially if you like cycling and mountain biking. In 2009 the Giro has passed by with the longest and toughest stage of that year. For the less trained: in Senigallia along the flat coastline waits a free bike for you!
Le Marche is also suitable for special kinds of walking activities. Nearby Fratte Rosa you can make beautiful walks and go cycling as well. The paths (Sentieri) are easily accessible and the routes are clearly marked with signs. And of course walking in one of the many natural parks can be a very pleasant activity.
Skiing and Snowboarding
A good half hour drive from Casa Tartufo e Mare you can go skiing on Mount Catria (1700m). New installations and lifts have been installed at the 9 km runs! Of course, while skiing you can enjoy delicious snacks and drinks from Le Marche, in the restaurant on the piste. Skis or snowboards can also be rented locally.
More skiing can be found in the Monte Sibellini (above 2000m).

Two beautiful golf courses are within an hour. The old 18-hole course in Sirolo and the modern Riviera Golf 18 hole course. In the beautiful natural park of Conero is a golf course, so kill two birds with one stone .... Especially recommended in the quiet months of April, May, October and November.
Sailing, windsurfing and kite surfing can be done in Senigallia on the Adriatic coast, about 30 minutes from Fratte Rosa. In Marotta and Senigiallia are windsurfing schools.
Skydiving can done in a school near Fano.
Mountain climbing enthusiasts certainly find their liking in the Apennines.
