I'd welcome any insider tips on Le Marche please. I know DS(nearly 5)would love a week on a beach but I don't think this part of the adriatic has any "small & quiet" resorts from what I can see. DH would never forgive me if we ended up in a busy resort. Am I wrong, is there a little gem out there?
My gut feeling is to opt for self catering inland, suggestions also welcomed, know any good Agriturismos? Don't want to stray too close to Tuscany/Umbria as we are spending our 2nd week there anyway.

Big gem ..Its a lovely place really adorable. Mary Pop ( she is on Little Italy thread sometimes) is from Fano which is just up the coast. I was in that area years ago and I used to go to Archevia and Marotta in the hills just up from Senigallia. however I loved Sirolo and Numana a bit further down the coast , quieter smaller , nice beaches. There was a hotel Il Fortino in that area that was lovely a fortress right on the beach ! I don't know of any agriturismos. I would go back there any day as loved it.

Thanks Rosa, that hotel looks great, especially as DH is a history nut, but a bit outside our budget .

Bumping my own thread here as we're all booked and off to a villa near San Ginesio on Saturday. Anyone been to this area recently and can provide good tips, especially restaurants or perhaps quiet sandy beaches around Civitanova Marche or south?
