Borgo Il Fossato and its organic farm is surrounded by 20 hectares of land in a green valley, just 1 km from the village of Penna San Giovanni and half-way between Sibillini Mountains and the Adriatic Sea. There is nowhere better to taste the joys of country life, for example going hiking into the woods and green fields or walking through grapevines and organic orchards.
The old “borgo” and the villa were totally restored in 2005 and were inaugurated as an “agriturismo” by the owners in order to share their passion for nature and land with their guests and to offer them a unique country experience.
“Il Borgo”, dating from the 19th century, consists of 4- or 2-bedroom cottages, a swimming pool, park, woods and barbecue area. “La Villa”, an old manor house, has 5 apartments with a swimming pool, car park, park, woods and barbecue area.
The restaurant is specialised in traditional cuisine of Le Marche, using only the finest home-grown, seasonal, organic products. Here you can taste vegetables and “bruschette” dressed with their own extra virgin olive oil, salami, cheese and home-made jams, as well as home-made pasta, grilled meat (lamb, chicken, pork and rabbit) together with local red and white wines.
During the high season every week the owners organise a BBQ evening in the park for all the guests as well as a pizza evening, preparing pizza in the wood burning oven!
