Borgo Tranquillo

Le Marche in central Italy is not as well known as nearby Tuscany, but is a hot tip for travelers in Italy. In this pristine region, the British designer Frank Andrew turned a group of dilapidated houses in a luxurious vacation home.

From the outside, Borgo Tranquillo seems to be quite traditional, but stepping inside reveals individually designed, modern loft-style apartments. The resort features four spacious apartments, a villa and a spa. It includes a lounge with club style ambience, a Turkish bath, a sauna and an infinity pool, which seems to extend over the hills and into the countryside.

The spacious property is home to a maximum of 12 people. This ensures that the Borgo Tranquillo is as its name (quiet place) suggests: a place to relax.

What to do

Infinity pool, bowling alley, clubhouse with sauna and hammam, extensive walks, discovery tours with the "Discover the Marches with Borgo Tranquillo" guestbook, excursions to the sea.

Why we like this house

The light-flooded, modern spaces and the almost timeless scenery of the old storehouse and the surrounding landscape are a perfect blend. The Clubhouse with spa-area, open fire, free bar, library and spectacular panoramic views offers just the right setting for a incredibly relaxing break.

This house is great for

Families, couples, friends...everyone who loves a relaxing stay in a place where you feel home away from home!

Owner picture


Ariane was born in Switzerland, her husband Frank comes from Great Britain. Both worked in strenuous jobs for more than two decades—Frank as head of an internationally renowned design company, Ariane had a senior management position in a news and media company. The Italy lovers wanted to change this jam-packed life and found an old estate in the Marche region in 2002. After several years of renovation, this became their new home and a holiday residence, Borgo Tranquillo.

  1. Thank you so much for a most relaxing holiday, location, the apartment, the pool, the sunset bench, Boccia court, so much attention to detail. We have never enjoyed a holiday so much, and understand why everyone returns. Thank you, Frank and Ariane for all the lovely things you spoil us with every single day. It has been an amazing experience and we cannot wait to return.

  4. Es ist sehr selten, dass die Erwartungen, die man an einen Urlaub hat, übertroffen werden. Dies ist bei Euch und Eurem wundervollen Borgo Tranquillo klar der Fall, deshalb erhaltet ihr von uns auf einer Skala von 1 – 10 eine glatte 11! Wir treten gut erholt die Heimreise an und freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen. Bleibt gesund, optimistisch und kreativ!

  5. Glühwürmchen-Olympiade, es duftet auf Schritt und Tritt… liebe Ariane, lieber Frank es war mal wieder wunderschön! Wir haben Loretto entdeckt und Corinaldo und dass der Mond vielleicht doch ein Eierkopf ist. Danke, dass ihr es jedes Mal noch etwas schöner macht – euch eine schöne Zeit und dass ihr euer schönes Fleckchen Erden zwischendurch auch geniessen könnt.
    Viele Liebe Grüsse bis nächstes Jahr
