Borgo della Spiga is located in the province of the attractive town of Macerata, in the vicinity of Cingoli, a picturesque town with well-preserved Renaissance and Baroque buildings which is only 10 km away. It boasts also the most beautiful views from Mount Conero to the Sibillini Mountains, hence its name “the balcony of Marche”. Borgo della Spiga is well positioned to visit many other treasures as well: the towns of Pollenza and Treia, Macerata and its 19th century open-air theatre (Sphaeristerium), the Frasassi Caves and the Loreto Sanctuary can be reached in about 40 minutes.
Borgo della Spiga is a complex of buildings located in the heart of the countryside of Marche. It is just like a village (borgo) and it consists of two apartments with independent entrance and an old farmhouse in the centre of a large estate. In the grounds is an award-winning swimming pool that boasts spectacular 360-degree views of the valley; it is surrounded by a relaxation area and a solarium furnished with contemporary furniture created by the Israeli designer Ron Arad, its sinuous lines harmonising and yet contrasting with the geometric shape of a minimalist gazebo. There is a restaurant at Borgo della Spiga, located on the ground floor of the farmhouse; decorated with white beams, white tables and chairs with rush seats, its space is large and flooded with natural light. Breakfast is served here every morning, unless the guests prefer eating al fresco; they can also order a light lunch at the Bistrot, and three nights a week it is open to diners to try the best local dishes. The buildings of Borgo della Spiga have been renovated to the highest standards of sustainability; in fact the owners have chosen environmentally friendly solutions and technologies to have the least impact on nature, such as photovoltaic panels, rainwater irrigation systems and LED lighting, to mention but a few. All the structures are structurally sound and meet the latest seismic regulations.
Borgo della Spiga offers three types of accommodation, all of them provided with Wi-Fi: two apartments with independent entrance, of approximately 40 sq m, which extend over two levels, with mezzanine sleeping area, open kitchen and access to a patio area; a Junior Suite with access to its own garden and five rooms with splendid views located respectively on the ground and first floor of the farmhouse. All the rooms have floorboards and exposed stone features, which blend well with the white furniture and the shabby chic pieces.
