now marche is
our home!

After 35 years in the kitchen as owner and chefs in Sweden's most acclaimed restaurants - we took a new turn in life! ​ We sold all our restaurants and searched us to the Italian countryside. Here, in the beautiful Marche, we found a wonderful property now converted into an exclusive "gastro-boutique hotel" - beautifully situated on its hill with wonderful views. ​
’and I wish you were here’

about us

We are pleased to announce that from February 2017 we, Peter and Carina Nordin from Sweden,

are the new owners of Casa San Ruffino. We bought this fantastic little hotel (paradise) from an English family relocating back to London.


We have substantial experience in the hospitality industry. Prior to running Relais San Ruffino, we owned and operated (1985-2016) one of Stockholm’s largest and most award-winning restaurant group (14 restaurants). In 2016 we decided to – after 30 years – sell everything. 

The gastronomy means everything in marche!

In all our years, we have accumulated extensive experience in the Italian countryside. We have both produced wine and olive oil for our previous restaurants.

We will give you the best of our surroundings. Villages, restaurants, handicrafts, etc.

We have developed our business. In 2018, we have redesigned our beautiful rooms.

You will find new handmade sun beds by the pool, lovely furniture outside each room.

We have a large wood fired barbecue and pizza oven in the garden. We put out lounge furniture in the garden, where you can dream away with a cocktail in your hand.

We are both awarded chefs, sommeliers and pastry chefs.

We have published cookbooks and participated in television shows.

In Sweden, we are well recognized.

All this will we now bring to Marche and our B & B.



Our Relais San Ruffino has been rewarded - "Best Boutique Hotel" and "Best Hidden Gem".

Our work has brought fruit. New designed superior rooms / small suites with AC, all rooms (not Katarina room) have small patios, beautiful bathrooms with toiletries and a large pool with new Italian sun beds. Molton Brown toiletries are an exclusive series of products, the garden, almost like a Japanese garden.

As an extra spice, we have our gastronomy where we grow most of the vegetable that we will serve to our dining experiences. Plus, our new website that has a large amount of traffic and lot appreciation - which is still under development - that gave us two prestigious awards.


We thank humbly and will continue our development. It's the combination of many simple things done right that create Relais San Ruffino experience. When Carina and I were in charged of our restaurants, we received a lot of prizes and diplomas. That's because we had a principle.


"Quality is not an act, but a habit".

Welcome to Relais San Ruffino for a personalized experience -

that you never will forget - in the truest Italian region of the all - Le Marche.
