What to see and do in Le Marche

Case Leonori is located near the picturesque town of Treia, at an altitude of 500 meters, centrally in the Region Le Marche (the Marches). We are located in the hilly interior 45 minutes from the beach and 50 minutes from the mountains. We are surrounded by forests, hills and beautiful views. In our region the Marches you will find the authentic, real Italy with hospitable people and untouched nature reserves.

Towns and villages

From our agriturismo you can visit various authentic villages and towns in the immediate vicinity, such as Macerata, Loreto, Recanati, San Severino Marche and Osimo. Towns where time seems to have stood still, with narrow alleys, streets and squares where the locals nod your hello. Of course, a visit to our own municipality of Treia should not be missed, in the summer we organize a weekly city tour with English speaking guide.


Hikers in Le Marche can indulge themselves in the famous Sibillini mountains, where an extensive network of hikes can be found. Or closer to us in the Monte San Vicino Natural Park with the famous Canfaito forests. You can also leave the car and choose directly from our agriturismo from various hiking trails in the forest, through valleys and to the medieval defense tower of Pitino.


A day of enjoying the beach can be done in various seaside resorts about 45 minutes drive away, for example in Porto Recanati with fine pebble beach, cozy shopping street and Mediterranean boulevard. At Monte Conero, the beautiful beaches of Sirolo and Numana are a 60-minute drive away. The well-known and elongated beach of Civitanova Marche is easily accessible via the SS77 motorway.

Mountain biking and cycling

Cycling enthusiasts can go mountain biking or cycling in the area. We organize MTB tours directly from our Agriturismo on our own (electric) MTBs. Cycling can be done at any level: a panoramic tour along the valley or a challenging descent through the forest and over rock parties.


There is also plenty to do for the children, for example the Aquapark Verde Azzuro in Cingoli is only a 30-minute drive away and you can also climb between the trees in the Adventure Park in the same place. In Apiro you can find the somewhat larger Aquapark El Dorado. The beautiful, famous caves of Frasassi are also worth a day visit (60 minutes drive) and impressive for young and old. Closer to home (5 minutes by car) there is a large playground with picnic areas where you can play to your heart’s content and where many local Italian families can also be found on weekends.

Food and drink

Of course you will find various restaurants, trattorias and pizzerias in our area where you can eat deliciously and drink a good glass of wine. In the hills behind our agriturismo is a small fattoria where 2 brothers make delicious wines and organize tastings with local dishes.

Whatever your wish is, we are happy to advise you and reserve a table for dinner or a beach bed, help you choose a suitable walking route or show the way to the nicest places in our region!

About Us

We, Paul van der Heijden and Wendy Lievaart, together with our three children Stan (2010), Noor (2013) and Linde (2013) emigrated in 2019 to the beautiful Le Marche in Italy. From that moment on we are the proud owners of Agriturismo Case Leonori where we receive our guests in Italian atmospheres and run our organic farm on the surrounding 16 ha of land. In 2017, our search for a dream spot in our beloved region of Le Marche began. After more than 2 years of searching, we found the perfect place for us to live and above all found the place where our guests are going to feel at home. Centrally located in Le Marche, tucked between the hills, surrounded by forests and nature lies Agriturismo Case Leonori. Once an old farmhouse with barns, inhabited by a farming family, in recent years beautifully converted into 4 characteristic apartments, fully equipped. We enjoy the views, unspoilt nature, peace and all the beauty that this region has to offer. Visit us and enjoy together with us, A presto!

Nice and small-scale location. Oasis of peace in for us new surroundings. With attractive authentic apartments and stunning views from the pool over the beautiful surroundings.
