Borgo Storico Seghetti Panichi
Le Marche, Italy
Aristocratic summer residence near Italy's Adriatic Coast, with accommodation in a spacious suite or apartment
Chances are the little-known region of Le Marche has not come to your attention before now. Bordered by the Sibillini mountains and the Adriatic sea, this rural idyll is an undiscovered Tuscany. Retreat to the region with a stay at the centuries-old Borgo Storico Seghetti Panichi - a beautifully preserved hilltop estate with aristo-rustic interiors and stunning views over the surrounding vineyards.
With gardens designed by 19th century botanist Ludwig Winter, this cluster of medieval buildings are the setting for just 11 luxurious suites and apartments. Borgo Storico has been owned by the same family for generations and retains an air of traditional elegance, mixing country colours with antique heirlooms. There's an open-air swimming pool in the grounds, a coffee shop, bookshop and vegetable patches, which supply much of the cooking here.
With just 11 suites and apartments at this secluded property, each one offers a tremendous amount of space and privacy. Individually designed with little eccentricities, antiques and period details, they're a postcard vision of a rural Italian residence.
All rooms feature:
- Room service
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- Satellite TV
Ristorante del Borgo is a relatively modern addition to the estate, showcasing cuisine from two new chefs of the Marchigiano school. Even so, the recipes are steadfastly traditional, emphasing seasonal, regional ingredients like funghi and cave-aged cheeses. The estate has its own fruit and veg patches, which supply many of the dishes.
Borgo Storico is located on a blissfully remote hilltop in the Le Marche countryside (though just five minutes from the nearest train station). Brushed by a soft sea breeze that comes off the Adriatic, the estate commands panoramic views over the rolling landscape, with its neat vineyards and tiny medieval villages. The historic, provincial capital of Ascoli Piceno is home to a handsome cathedral and is around eight kilometres away, while the restaurant-lined coast is about 25 minutes away.
