Le Marche and its villages ... Living in a dream
When we talk about the Le Marche, it appears to be a platitude to consider the region one of the most unknown areas in Italy. However in 2005 The New York Times had dedicated a large article to Le Marche Region inviting to discover the authentic beauties, worthy of the well-known Tuscany.
The truth is that, contrary to what we might think, our land is known and appreciated all over the world especially by those who love to get in touch with the truer Italy, the so-called Italian-ness. The Marche, beyond any phenomenon related to mass tourism, is the ideal place for those who want to live a unique experience combining contact with an almost unspoiled nature, with authentic lifestyles, centuries old traditions as well as an artistic and architectural heritage of great value.
Not surprisingly, in Le Marche region, a small medieval village of only 2,500 inhabitants, has become in recent years an important tourist destination, with a strong vocation for wedding tourism. Petritoli has enchanted and is continuing to enchant couples from all over the world who choose to celebrate their wedding in some of the most evocative places of the village, such as the Iride Theater and Piazza della Rocca with its nineteenth-century Torre Civica - main lookout point of the entire Valdaso, between characteristic medieval alleys surrounded by terracotta facades of ancient and imposing palaces, surrounded by a natural landscape of unique beauty and welcomed by the sympathy and warmth of the locals. Only in the last season, from April to October 2018, more than 15 marriages of foreign couples were celebrated, with a consistent tourist flow mostly from the United Kingdom, America, Australia, Germany and Ireland.
The village attracts for the quality and simplicity of life, the human scale dimension combined with a wide range of services. All these elements make it the perfect place to regenerate and spend an unforgettable romantic experience, as well as the ideal place to live permanently. As in most of Le Marche villages, in fact, in Petritoli you can breathe a link with the past, evident among other things in the millenary architecture of the old town center, and an authentic lifestyle, defined "slow", far from the frenetic rhythms of the cities, marked by the tolling of bells and inebriated by the scents and colors of the seasons.
Petritoli also enjoys a geographically perfect location. The village is located at approx. 350 meters above sea level, in a dominant position between the Aso and Ete rivers, within a hilly territory that harmoniously connects the Sibillini Mountains, to the west - approx. 40 km away, to the Adriatic coast, to the east - approx. 17 km away.
Le Marche, with its countless enchanting villages, of which Petritoli is an excellent example, are in the heart of Italy quintessentially Italian and this is what people fall in love with. This region still remains one of the best Italy's kept secrets in which it seams still possible to live in a dream ...
