Want to relax?

Roberto Ferretti of La Scentella invites you to the “garden of Le Marche”, the beautifull valley of the river Aso and the surrounding hills. From the Sibillini mountains to the Adriatic sea between colourful hills and medieval villages, orchards and olive groves, art, history and culture… a perfect combination that goes with the fine flavours of excellent country cuisine!

La Scentella
is a country house nestling in the quiet countryside between woods and fields of lavender and rosemary. The house is divided into individual apartments and is located on the outskirts of the pretty village of Petritoli just a few kilometres from the sea and the mountains. At all times of the year we can arrange visits, museums, the historical centres and villages of the Piceno region. A spa and a swimming pool (covered and heated in winter) are a few kilometres away.
La Scentella offers special weekend breaks for everyone in every season.


“Cooking and eating together” – the preparation and tasting of traditional peasant cuisine of the Fermano area. Soups, polenta, pasta and other delicious dishes. We offer guided tasting tours of local wine, oil, honey, jam and fruit syrups in company with the producers. Relax and enjoy tournaments in traditional games such as darts, burraco, chess and briscola (the famous local card game).
Events not to miss: “Il Carnevale” in Offida and in Ascoli Piceno during February.


Pleasant Walks in the countryside to search for and gather wild herbs which we will cook and enjoy together later. Roberto will tell you all about the joy and magic of herbs. Cycling through the countryside in full bloom and visit old villages and charming churches.
Events not to miss: “Il Cavallo di Fuoco” an historical spectacular with fireworks in Ripatransone during April.


Mornings at the beach with picnics by the beautiful Adriatic or hiking in the Sibillini mountains. Afternoons walks in the countryside among fields of lavender, rosemary and aromatic herbs and helping with the lavender harvest to make essential oil production in July.

Events not to miss: “La Festa delle Cove”, harvest festival, where the peasants take over the village for a day – in Petritoli during July.
