What a wonderful stay we had over the new year period. Coming home each evening after exloring the beautiful region of marche was a delight. We didn’t want to leave our villa on the hill, it became our home. The accomodation is supurb, the facilites fantastic, the hosts friendly and helpful. The perfect tranquill holiday getway.

Rent a holiday cottage or apartment deep into rural Italy and you kind of know what to expect. If you’re after slightly shabby Italian countryside vernacular, a chintz curtain covering the dented saucepans under the sink, wobbly dark wooden furniture and hand-me-down crockery then the Borgo is NOT for you. The Borgo is cool. The Borgo is stylish. The Borgo is many other things too …..quiet, charming, spacious, clean, well appointed and the very best of traditional & modern combined.
The location is spectacular nestling on top of a rolling hill overlooking a beautiful fields and valleys. The Borgo is close to the reasonably sized traditional hill town of Arcevia and just 40 minutes drive from Senigallia on the Adriatic coast – which we just loved – seriously good restaurants & bars, lots of sand and a fabulous old fish market which has been beautifully refurbished. Good shopping & cafes too along with a mix of traditional and modern shops and there’s even a castle and an excellent street market (ask Frank or Ariane which day its on – they couldn’t be more helpful) – that’s if you can drag yourself away from the gorgeous infinty pool with it’s view over the valley (…and if you get a wet day or two there’s always the sauna and the hammam!)
If you like out-and-about however and have done the many local walks then head for the caves at Frasassi – its not that far and a lovely drive. ‘Caves’ – hmmmm… I bet you’re thinking some drippy-ceilinged grot hole with coloured fairy lights – think again! OK – so you do have to drive past the actual cave entrance down to the car park & souvenir shops and then get a shuttle bus back up – and you do have a short walk through a tunnel in the side of the mountain to access the caves – but I guarantee that’s not what you’ll remember when you leave! Breathtaking – we explored for over one and a half hours – not to be missed, never forgotten. Great family destination – even our two teenagers loved it.
Back to the Borgo – light fresh contemporary interiors with lovely furniture all mod cons – and each apartment has outside areas to just sit and enjoy. We really loved this place and will definitely be going back this summer – I doubt Le Marche has a better rural retreat – I can almost taste the Rosso Conero just thinking about it……

Ketts, Tunbridge Wells, Spring 2008


Had an amazing time here, from being greeted with a glass of prosecco from the lovely owners, to the infinity pool with the mind blowing view, to all the little details which made everything just right. Everything had been thought of – big italian cook book, DVD library, well equipped kitchen, free bar, books, bikes and BBQs to borrow, comfy pool cushions, board games, sauna, bath in bedroom, cool wet room bathroom, funky chairs suspended from the ceiling. It was all amazing. the place is very well designed – it looks like a funky boutique hotel, but self-catering (which we prefer). The location is quiet and the view is outstanding. We didn’t venture out very much but are nice little towns nearby to pick up provisions. Would highly recommend this place!

Quiet, clean, fresh air, pleasant pool, fresh air and nothing but mountains around, stylistic and spacy flats, absolute comfort- amazing combination between nature and cultural comfort. Friendly owners and visitors and a cosy feeling all together, together with complete privacy. GOOD!
