The UK government has announced that people in England, and hopefully shortly, Wales and Northern Ireland, will soon be able to travel more easily.



Also, from 1st September, Italy dropped the requirement for UK visitors to quarantine on arrival.



So suddenly travel to Italy is a great deal easier, and cheaper.

With Covid infections in Italy running at about one sixth of those in the UK, what could be safer than your private apartment in the beautiful countryside? In public places including restaurants the “Green Pass” system is in operation so only vaccinated people, or those with antibodies or a negative test result are admitted. UK (the existing NHS app) and all EU certifications are accepted. Bob and Ian were vaccinated at the first opportunity.

Is this the time to enjoy that getaway that you have been waiting so long for? Autumn in Marche can be beautiful, the Mediterannean warmth often lasts well into November. Subject to demand and weather we keep the pool open and the brave can enjoy a dip from the deserted beaches, while the rest of us enjoy the tranquillity of a peaceful walk on the sands. After a hot dry summer the olive harvest promises to be phenomenal, anyone who has never smelt or tasted fresh olive oil is in for a treat. If the evenings turn chilly enjoy roast chestnuts in front of your log fire with a glass of red wine from a great local vineyard.


Due to the uncertainties we have decided not to run our Gourmet Breaks this year but we will be here to welcome guests until we ourselves go away on 3rd November. Until then we’ll be offering a warm welcome to everyone, wherever in the world you are travelling from!

Stay safe

Bob and Ian
