The Village

Loretello is one Le Marche’s smallest and most picturesque villages and is located right in the heart of Italy. Here time stands still, life flows slowly and silence reigns supreme, only interrupted by the chiming of bells and the tweeting of the birds. The alleyways all lead to a breathtaking square overlooking that kind of majestic landscapes that make you feel tiny but still part of something bigger.

Apparently there is nothing much in Loretello, and yet when you are here it’s like you have it all.

The Community

A small but fierce community looks over Loretello and it is mostly scattered around the old town’s walls. The locals are friendly and welcoming and will be often seen tending their gardens or having a gentle stroll. Some have moved here from afar, attracted by the quiet area and slow life.

The Landladies

Pauline, Chiara and Elisa are the landladies of Borgo Loretello. They joined forces in 2019 to create what they believe to be the ultimate slow holiday destination in Italy. They poured into this new venue all their experience in hotellerie, tourism and event planning with the intention to create a different concept of holiday altogether where guests are encouraged to unwind to forget the rat race and enjoy some quality time with the people they love the most.


Chiara is Merry Le Marche’s co-founder and specialises in the organization and management of hands-on activities and event organization. She has extensive experience in cinema and opera production.


Dutch by birth, Italian by heart, Pauline has been living and managing holiday properties in Le Marche for the past 15 years. She is also an expert in Marketing and has started and successfully run her holiday venue “Rustico del Bozzo”.


Also Merry Le Marche’s co-founder specialising in destination wedding planning, photoshoot styling, event management and branding consultant. Elisa has extensive experience as a business owner and manager at a corporate level both in Italy and in the UK.
