Wake up to the chirping of birds. Have breakfast with homemade cakes and typical regional products. Spend the day outdoors, discovering a wonderful area by bike, an area made up of green hills, woods, valleys, medieval villages, lakes and mountains. Stop for a sandwich at a viewpoint. Take a break in a village bar for a coffee and a chat. End the day with a dip in the sea and a dinner in a typical restaurant.
This is Marche. This is Pedalare con lentezza.

Porto Sant’Elpidio is a tourist town on the Adriatic Sea, located in the Marche region, in the province of Fermo, where geological events have produced a beautiful combination of landscape elements. Here, a few meters from the beach, the beautiful hills of the Marche , characterized by the perfect integration of human activities with nature, immediately begin to rise. The cultivated fields, the farmhouses, the villages with medieval historic centers, the “white roads” or “strade bianche”, the vineyards, the olive trees, everything leads back to an ancient world on a human scale that is the essence of this region even today. Discovering these places by bike can be a wonderful experience, which many then dream of repeating.
About fifty kilometers away, towards the west, rises the Sibillini chain, the famous Monti Azzurri, sung by the poet Giacomo Leopardi. Their silhouette is practically visible from anywhere in the province. Very often you’ll find yourself in panoramic points with a view of the sea on one side and the mountains on the other.
Porto Sant’Elpidio is an ideal base for exploring the Marche region without giving up the comforts and entertainment typical of a town on the Adriatic coast.
We are in a quiet and peaceful neighbourhood, on the border between the town and the countryside. The slightly elevated position above sea level makes the area cooler than the coast. In particular, sunset is a beautiful time when you can enjoy the coolness of the breeze in the garden.
We have three double rooms, each with its own identity, which reflects the variety of the landscape of Marche.
Each room has air conditioning and a private bathroom.
For breakfast we offer homemade cakes and, on request, with a small surcharge, typical salty products of our region.
In the common area, each room has its own table, a space to use as a pantry, a space in the refrigerator.
There is also an airy and sunny balcony, with an external basin for washing clothes and drying racks with pins.
Breakfast is served from 7:00 until 9:30. Then you can enjoy breakfast on your own.
It is not possible to cook, but you can safely bring food and consume it in our common area, using your table and the dishes that we provide.
Pedalare con lentezza is a BnB specialized in welcoming cyclists. Each room has a special space for the storage of bikes. You will not have to worry about your beloved two-wheeled vehicle, it will be in the room with you.
Outside we have set up a washing station for bikes, with a stand, water hose and specific cleaning products. We recommend not to bring muddy or wet bikes to the room.
If you are a cyclist you can have fun discovering the places by following the tracks of the itineraries in the blog, or by asking for advice from the owner of the BnB, Fabio, creator and curator of the website pedalareconlentezza.com, always ready to talk about little-known roads or “cycling adventures and food and wine experiences”.
Here some routes starting from our B&B
If you are not a sportsman but you want to have a nice outdoor experience, you can rely on our partners to rent an E-bike and cycle tour guides.
If you just want to rest and enjoy the sea you can take advantage of our BnB and the relaxing garden after a day spent on the beach.
