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!
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.
