our dream is to offer you the best of Le Marche, the secret Italy...
Cooking class a casa with one of our friendly chefs. Make your own mozzarella, ricotta or pecorino. Bake your home made piadine, served with your choice of prociutto crudo and rucola, learn how to create delicious ricotta tortellini and much more!
Discover the magical Sibillini National Park, vast highlands smothered in wilsflowers, canyon burrowing deep into mountainsides and accessible ridges with breathtaking views. A lunch in the beautiful village of Castellucio di Norcia would be a perfect combination.
Le Marche is like Tuscany, plus the Adriatic sea... Just drive for the day straight to the Monte Conero Riviera. Wild nature, white beaches, crystal clear water, untouched from mass tourism.
Rent your own private boat from Numana's marina and end up in Portonovo with a couple of stops to swim in the exclusive waters of one of the most beautiful environments in Europ. A delicious seafood menu will be served on board...What else?
A day touring the wine region of Le Marche is the best way to taste and experience the area. Le Marche produces some of the best wines of Italy that you never knew existed. Let's start the discovery with our passionnate sommeliers Amy and Mirco.
If you're going truffle hunting then the best chance of finding any is Acqualagna, in Pesaro-Urbino Province, 100km from casa Olivi, as it suplies two thirds of the italian market.
Experience a fantastic day with experts and dogs in local woodland, with private transportation in our defender and lunch in one of the best adresses of Le Marche.
A tour rich in culture, architecture, beautiful lanscape and wild unspoilt countryside. Carriage rides along naturalistic ways into the rural landscapes of Treia, slow drive on the small roads with our 1968 Triumph Spitfire MK3, or try some real 4x4 off roads with our brand new defender, you have the choice!

About This Book
As our lives become busier and less predictable, our underlying desire for personal refuge has gotten stronger. Whether done alone, in pairs, or as a community, rituals of wellness inspire a sense of calm and self-awareness within our increasingly chaotic world. Oasis showcases a stunning selection of baths, spas, retreats, and other relaxing getaways that not only cater to our personal well-being, but also push the creative frontiers of architecture, interior design, and quality of service.
This book brings together a rich assortment of contemporary locations for indulging both our bodies and our minds—places to let go, be pampered, relax, and refocus. From public saunas to choice health clubs and five-star resorts, the spectrum of retreats ranges from minimalist spaces of tranquility to glamorously opulent temples of body care. While some examples provide an oasis amid the bustle of city life, others can be found in sweeping natural landscapes framed by dramatic vistas.
The lavish photographs in Oasis are accompanied by texts that reveal how the featured operators, architects, and designers are addressing and re-imagining our physical and mental need for escape and tranquility.
The Truffle Hunters from The Perennial Plate on Vimeo.
The locals in Marche, Italy have been eating truffles since they were children... long before they were a prized posession in most of the world. Now the region (the truffle center of Italy) is dotted with hidden spots that trained truffle hunters and their dogs traverse each year. We spent a day with a truffle hunter, his dog, and his dealer.
