Our second visit to a unique and palatial villa, steeped in history, and located 20 mins outside Ascoli Piceno. This is a special experience with spacious rooms that are comfortable and elegantly furnished. The grounds are extensive and delightful and there is a family chapel

We (wife + kids) stayed there for 10 days or so and it was fantastic! The property is beautiful, quiet and the staff is truly "at your service" without being obnoxious. You feel cared for and respected and it felt very good. The restaurant attached to the Borgo is so good that

We stayed here for two nights recently, including a Saturday. The hotel is nice enough although situated on the edge of a largish town which encroaches on the views. The room was comfortable enough, the breakfast adequate - but no more - but served in a room looking across the

Dear MauroMatt, Thank you very much for your detailed review on the Borgo Storico Seghetti Panichi. To reply at my best to your comments I have to specify that we are not really a hotel but a family home - "Dimora Storica" - opened to the public. People who book should know that we have no numbers on the rooms but names, that there are only 12 of them available and that the atmosphere is very relaxed, as though one was a guest in somebody's home. We are situated on top of a hill overlooking the town of Castel di Lama which offers many facilities like shops, restaurants, supermarkets, cinemas and three churches! The restaurant and breakfast are managed by a separate company run by the Chef Patron Davide Camaioni. We are very sorry to hear that this experience has not been up to standard for you. Breakfasts have been temporarily moved in the Restaurant room as there have been new laws regarding food delivery for which we had to close the pergola / garden area where we have given breakfasts for the past 10 years. It will reopen next year with food and bar possibilities. The Chef Davide tries very hard to re- interpret old recipes in a contemporary manner so to cater to those who enjoy a more contemporary and young view of local dishes. Personally, knowing that Le Marche has to offer so many very good local restaurants, I appreciate Davide's courage to be different, to show travellers that this area is not only pizza and pasta but has also young creative restaurateurs wanting to make a difference and be part of a forward thinking global movement. We apologise for the wedding noise you heard. Music in Italy can go on till 1.30am at which point we always make sure to switch it off. Hoping to see you again at the Borgo Storico, Kind Regards, Stefania Pignatelli

We spent three weeks on a road trip of Northern and Central Italy and the three nights that we spent as this hotel were seen as being the totally relaxing and luxurious part of the trip. Sadly, this didn't prove to be the case and our hopes and high expectations weren't fully

Dear Richiemin, Thank you very much for your detailed review on the Borgo Storico Seghetti Panichi. To reply at my best to your comments I have to specify that we are not really a hotel but a family home - "Dimora Storica" - opened to the public. People who book should know that we have no numbers on the rooms but names, that there are only 12 of them available and that the atmosphere is very relaxed, as though one was a guest n fact in somebody's home. We are situated on top of a hill overlooking the town of Castel di Lama which offers many facilities like shops, restaurants, supermarkets, cinemas and three churches! I am very sorry to know that your stay was not up to standards. The Casa D'Artista where you were staying, is an apartment that we redecorated recently with all new restored family furniture. Perhaps the style was not of your taste. I do confirm that it is grand in size but not in decor. It has been created to cater for families who do not want to worry about antique furniture close to their children's hands and feet! It is a very thought after choice that we made on the basis of requests from guests in the past years. The air conditioning system is actually also very new - just a couple of years - hence I think that some buttons must have been mis managed for it to bring in hot air. I have in fact the confirmation from our house keeper that it has been working well since the beginning of the season. The pool has been done to a regular size so not to disrupt the historic garden. It has been a modern intervention that needed the approval of the Cultural Heritage Department of Italy. The size takes into account that not all guests staying at the Borgo will use the pool at the same time. Personally, I have been to many chambre d'haute / Dimore Storiche / Residenze d'Epoca swimming pools so big and deserted that they seemed a big waste of space and missed "green" opportunities. The depth of the pool is given by national law. It cannot be deeper than 1.05metres! In 2013 we had to make huge maintenance works to the pool: make it more shallow, add non slippery floors, new shower, change the old pumps and filters and erect an iron fence, all to make it children and people friendly and comply to Eu and Regional laws. Entertainment music in Italy can go on till 1.30am at which point we make sure to switch it off. Weddings and parties take place usually on weekends. I am very sorry if you had not been told at the time of your booking but we usually to tell our guests. These parties were infact booked much closer to the date of your arrival. Kind Regards, Stefania Pignatelli

We spent 6 nights at this amazing property and we couldn't fault the accommodation or service. The grounds are stunning and the location for exploring the Marche region is perfect. We ate at the restaurant twice during our stay and the food was great. What set this accommodation
