This establishment has been very beautifully designed to incorporate very high standard self catering apartments as well as retaining the beauty and charm of the main residence. No where is out of bounds and it truly is so beautiful and peaceful walking around the grounds with seating everywhere so that you can sit and enjoy the beauty of the place. The main residence is delightful, the owners must be so trusting to have such beautiful personal items on open display.
Our apartment was of a very high standard incorporating the modern with antique furniture and fine artworks, just lovely.
The pool area was so quiet and peaceful a great place to lounge around for the whole day. It was as if we had the whole establishment to ourselves.
On the days we weren't lounging around we got really helpful information regarding sights and places to visit from Andreas in reception, nothing was ever too much trouble for him.
This place is wonderful, situated on a hilltop overlooking farmland, mountains and yes some modern industry, but this does not spoil it whatsoever, a great place to discover the beauty and charm of Le Marche region. A gem.
We have just spent eight days at this beautiful establishment. The forward thinking owners have beautifully converted part of their Italian family residence into a number of separate apartments and rooms in the main house, whilst still living in the property themselves. We found it a very quiet establishment with a restaurant attached-see separate review.
It is essentially set on the outskirts a working town, but the setting is absolutely superb with views of the sea and the mountains in the distance. It is a really authentic Italian setting without the Tuscan prices and touristic attitudes. The main house is exquisite and family heirlooms, photographs, paintings, furniture etc are left in the property for everyone to admire. Truly beautiful and it would take a long time to examine each room to do it justice rather than the fleeting visit we made.
We could not fault any of the staff whatsoever. From Andreas, our reception host, ever helpful and always available to give advice to the cleaners with whom we managed to have a very pleasant conversation -even though they spoke little English and we spoke virtually no Italian! An education into Italian working conditions providing a stark contrast to the British situation. A somewhat amusing discourse but highly entertaining and gave us the opportunity to speak to real people.
The pool and surrounding area was very pleasant even though there were railings which had been mentioned by other guests. In our opinion a somewhat overzealous and over the top EU directive forcing the owners to comply with regulations created by bureaucrats in offices rather than on the ground.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, found it difficult to fault any aspect and this place is a real must for anyone who wants to see the real Italy and surrounding area.
If you look them out, there are plenty of decent restaurants outside of the property and charming Italian mountain villages eg Campli, Offida, Grottomare (old town) and Civitella del Tronto, despite the tragic earthquake recently. A perfect base to keep exploring with some R & R in between by the pool!
The hotel is lovely and we had a great room in the main house. Unfortunately the hotel is in the industrial zone which is quite ugly. It is also very close to the motorway. The pool area has been ruined by a fence and turnstile which is a shame, it really is very strange. We had booked for 6 nights but left after 2 to head back to Tuscany which is much more beautiful.
On the up side the staff were wonderful and couldn't of been more helpful. The food in the restaurant was delicious and service wonderful. Unfortunately the breakfast was very basic and could be vastly improved upon.
I would give the hotel 4 starts, the staff 5 but the location only 2.
This was our second visit to the Borgo, the first time was in 2011, and we were very happy with our stay. On both occasions we have chosen to stay in the apartments which are stylish and comfortable. We had previously enjoyed taking breakfast in the garden but were aware that this had changed as well as the installation of a fence around the pool due to regulations.
The setting is superb; the villa, grounds, chapel and the converted building, and this is matched by the staff, who are all friendly and attentive. Breakfast is now provided in the separately managed restaurant and offers a good selection, unless for some reason you want a "full English".
Many guests seem to stay for only a few days but if like us you want a longer break (we were there for 10 days) there are plenty of places to if you can tear yourself away from the elegance, peace and tranquillity of the Borgo.
We normally like to go to new places so the fact that this was our second visit, is a clear indication of how highly we rate it, it's not a hotel it's an experience.
We (wife + kids) stayed there for 10 days or so and it was fantastic! The property is beautiful, quiet and the staff is truly "at your service" without being obnoxious. You feel cared for and respected and it felt very good.
The restaurant attached to the Borgo is so good that it will have a star on the Michelin one of these days. The pool is nice and you can relax around it or just have lunch above it while enjoying a spectacular view. The property's owner is charming and it makes a whole difference as you can tell that she care for her property, her staff and her guests. The borgo is very well located: the sea is not too far, Ascoli Piceno and Fermo are worth a visit or you could also explore the country side or the mountains.
This place is very special. We had a wonderful time and that is something we'll cherish for a long time.
