About the property

Holiday Estate: Borgo Vecchio

The estate has been restored in original Marchigian style and is situated on a hill with a fantastic view of the sea. Three houses, an old Church, the pool and the 6,000 m² park-like garden help to make this a refuge of peace and quiet. There are five apartments to choose from, suitable for a maximum of 20 people. During the restoration we tried to avoid 'classical' hotel standards. Each apartment has its own charm by its individual and charming interior. All holiday homes have a cosy kitchen/dining area, a spacious bathroom, central heating and satellite TV. Our residents can dispose of the swimming pool, the barbecue, the bar, numerous quiet resting places and a sport field for boccia, badminton, volleyball... Borgo Vecchio is situated in a region of a cultural, culinary and scenic variety and the distance to the different beaches is only a few kilometers.

Since 2009 our pool can be heated in spring and autumn and we can offer to our guests as well a whirlpool to have massages.

Location:: San Costanzo with its good shopping is just 3 km away.

The romantic village with its imposing Malatesta Fortress is situated between 'Fano', a lovely old Roman town and 'Senigallia', one of the most famous old seaside resorts along the Adria. San Costanzo offers nearly all shopping possibilities, bars, restaurants, banks, a post-office and service stations.

Italian cooking:: Our italian cook is cooking for you 1-2 times a week a typical Marchigian dinner; Sometimes we prepare for our guests pizza in our pizza oven. The dinner is served at the pool or in the church.

Courses:: Cooking, Pottery and Italian Language on Borgo Vecchio only during the Low Season (before 1st of June or after 15th of September). Italian Language Courses : Dante Alighieri School Mondavio (15 minutes by car)- the whole year.

A Relaxing House Party.

  • 5 of 5

Following clear directions (the last stretch is on an unmade road through farmland!) we arrived to a warm welcome and a cold drink, Ulla, Harry and Paul the dog made our stay something special. We felt like guests at a house party. Although we were the only English guests, everybody spoke to us in English and we were included in everything. It was a lovely atmosphere. The apartment was clean, well equipped and comfortable, whilst the pool and the grounds were idyllic. The poolside bar was very welcome and the weekly get-together over a meal or drinks further encouraged the bonhomie. Ulla and Harry are happy to recommend trips and book restaurants, whilst Paul makes sure everybody gets his attention (for the price of a biscuit!). Le Marche is unspoilt with many beautiful places to visit. Urbino was the highlight of our trip. Otherwise, this really is a place to get away from it all and relax.

Borgo Vecchio was our home for 2 weeks in August 2008. We were fortunate to hit on Borgo Vecchio. The property has been cleverly and lovingly restored by Harry and Ulla whose unobtrusive efficiency and quickly established friendship contributed greatly to our enjoyment of the holiday. At the heart of the property is an impressive pool with 'Harry's Bar' at its head. Harry's gruff exterior ( like that of his faithful dog Prugna) hides a heart of gold. Ulla introduced us to reasonably priced local restaurants. The nearby beaches are easily reached. We used Torrette which has a nice Italian family atmosphere and safe bathing as well as free car parking. For sightseeing we visited Urbino. Be sure to attend the poolside dinner prepared by Ulla and Angela. A great party! Borgo Vecchio truly a home from home!

Taylor family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after a long drive from Lake Garda and were greeted with friendly smiles and complimentaty drinks from Harry and Ulla by the communal pool. The open-plan apartment had a balcony area where you could eat privately.

The pool was a great antidote to the long sunny days and everyone was friendly. There were several excellent restaurants nearby (frequented by local people) at reasonable prices. As Le Marche is not too touristy I would recommend it. Our trip to Urbino was a highlight and there are also beaches nearby with all facilities. The owners arranged a communal meal for everyone that was a fun experience of food, beers, wines and music. As we had young teenage children we wondered how things would work sharing the pool with others. It worked very well and Harry arranged a darts game in the evening that turned out to a competition between England and Germany! England might win another time.

Thanks for making us feel at home.

Ein wunderbares Feriendomizil

  • 5 of 5

-Die gesamte Anlage ist sehr gepflegt, die Appartments sind liebevoll und funktionell eingerichtet. Die Außenanlagen sind landestypisch gestaltet mit idyllischen Rückzugsmöglichkeiten.

-Alle Angaben im Online-Inserat waren voll zutreffend

-Die Betreuung durch die Vermieter war überaus gastfreundlich und zuvorkommend.

-Direkt von der Wohnung aus können wunderbare Wanderungen in die hübschen teilweise historischen Dörfer der Umgebung gemacht werden.

-Tipps für sehr gute REstaurants in der Umgebung kann man von den Vermietern gerne bekommen.

-Es gibt gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten für hervorragende biologische Weine und Olivenöle.

-Wir haben die Anlage schon vielen Freunden empfohlen und werden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen.

Erholung auf die schöne Art !

  • 5 of 5

Ein Urlaub wie er schöner nicht sein kann. Wer Ruhe, das ursprüngliche Italien und Gastfreundlichkeit sucht, ist auf Borgo Vecchio richtig.

Weites Land, fern vom Massentourismus. Mir hat es sehr gut gefallen. Ich komme gerne wieder. Vielen Dank an Ulla und Harry.

Gruß Chris

Top-Adresse in den Marken

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben dieses Jahr im August unseren Urlaub hier verbracht und uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Ulla und Harry sind ein nettes Vermieterpaar, die es an guten Ratschlägen und vielen Tipps zur Umgebung nicht fehlen lassen und so den Urlaub zu einem Erlebnis machen. Dazu die Landschaft rund um das Borgo sowie der Pool, den unsere beiden Mädchen (10/13) aber auch wir genossen haben. Das Grundstück bietet bei seiner Größe aber auch genügend Stellen, wo man sich zurückziehen kann - entsprechende Liegen etc. sind auch aufgestellt und laden dazu ein.

Nicht zu vergessen auch das Essen mit den anderen Feriengästen - ein Erlebnis.

Die Ferienwohnung ist für Familien mit Schulkindern ideal geeignet, wobei sie am besten das Grundschulalter überschritten haben sollten und Schwimmen können sollten. Dann ist es auch für die Eltern am schönsten - man kann den Kindern mit den Kindern der anderen Gäste freien Lauf lassen ohne ständig Angst haben zu müssen. Spielgelegenheiten finden sich immer - auch der Hund Paul findet aufgrund seines ruhigen Gemütes rasch Freunde bei den Kindern.
