A 70 years old wisteria tree blossoms in May and late July giving off an intense and sweetest scent. Cypress, fruit (apricot and prune) trees and a secular nut tree provide shade in this very typical Italian garden.
This year, for the first time to Le Marche in Italy. I am always looking for a place from which you can explore the surroundings well, simple and fast, say up to an hour's drive and, of course, a particularly nice spot to stay.
Soon I came out in Cagli and caught my eye on Palazzo Bonclerici, a centuries old house in the heart of the town. You feel and taste the history.
The apartment has everything you need. Behind the house is a beautiful city garden where you can relax. But the icing on the cake has to be the landlord of the apartment, Simone. Because Le Marche is still largely undeveloped for tourism, he has built a private travel guide with all the attractions in the region. He knows the beautiful places and the nice restaurants and because not everything is always open when you want to visit as a tourist, Simone always willing to call to arrange a visit.
Palazzo Bonclerici is inextricably linked to the small lively Cagli. Only one hundred meters away from the beautiful square with its cosy terraces where you from early in the morning until late in the Italian life can proceed. And not unimportant, the people are very friendly. And the shops are around the corner.
Top attractions of Cagli are the Teatro Comunale and the Torrione, you led by an inspired guide.
Of course, we have seen the highlights in the North of Le Marche: Urbino, Fabriano, Grotte di Frasassi, Fano and the nearby insanely beautiful Gubbio in Umbria but on the advice of Simone we have experienced a feast on the top of the Monte Nerone, eaten very well in the fortress of Frontone, the Gola del Furlo admired and the flanks of the Monte Catria to be climbed.
One week holiday to not quick to forget.
Our holiday in Cagli was a very enjoyable and lovely stay. With lots of help from the owner( he had made a large book of information and descriptions about the region)we could make beautiful hikes in the mountains and we had visit the towns around Cagli.
Thanks to the owner, we were able to sample the local Italian cuisine in the great restaurants in the neighborhood.
Romain remains in the area are worth to visit.( And finally we had found The Romain bridge...!!)
For pure Italian life, beautiful sightseeings, historic little towns and mountains in the neighbourhood, Cagli is a wonderful place to stay!

LOCATION. Bonclerici House apartments are less than 100 metres walk from the area of theatre and the main piazza of Cagli, where it is typical of local lifestyle having a glass of wine or a home made gelato at a table outside a café. The position is perfect to live Cagli on foot, for an easy and stress-free experience of its authentic athmosphere and beauty. There are also shops, groceries, restaurants where wines and gourmet specialties from Le Marche are served, and pizzerias where real italian pizza is served.
It is impossible not to be caught by the art and architecture treasures of the town: the Renaissance town hall, the Torrione, a XV century tower symbol of the town hosting a great modern sculpture permanent exhibition, the Roman bridge, the theatre, the medieval and XVII-XVIII century churches.
AMENITIES AND TRIPS. One day trips are recommended to visit Urbino (30 km), Raffaello Sanzio's native town, with its museums, the Palazzo Ducale and other masterpieces of Renaissance, or to Gubbio (26 km), the medieval town famous for the ceri run in May in nearby Umbria. About getting to Umbria, it is also possible to drive to Perugia and Assisi (80 km).
Worthy of a visit are the Frasassi caves (spectacular effects in the heart of the mountain) and Acqualagna, famous for its truffle based dishes. The natural reserve of the Gola del Furlo includes two Roman tunnels, unique in their kind (III century b. C. and I century) and archaeological sites along the via Flaminia. The villages around Cagli, rich in history and culture but mainly undiscovered, not commercially exploited, offer themselves in all their authenticity.
The mountain landscape is pure and uncontaminated. In spring the plateaux of the Apennines (Monte Catria, Monte Petrano, Monte Nerone, Monte Cucco) are a paradise of wild flowers, narcissi, violas, orchids, pink cyclamens and clouds of deep purple wild irises.
SPORTS AND OUTDOOR. Cycling is the ideal way to visit Le Marche. Information about itineraries to visit the most beautiful artistic villages cycling on roads with very little car traffic is provided in the apartments. Both well trained cyclists and less experienced ones find their appropriate routes to explore the immutable athmosphere of the area bordering Le Marche region and Umbria. Monte Catria, Monte Nerone, Monte Petrano and the natural reserve of the Gola del Furlo are the ideal playground also for mountain biking, hiking, nordic walking and horseback riding immersed in the uncontaminated countryside. The network of trails makes this region a perfect four-season destination for hiking.
