“A lovely stay in a lovely part of Italy”
Reviewed 4 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed with Lesley, Dean and Grace in August - on arrival all was lovely and continued to be so for the whole week. The apartments are clean, spacious and very nicely decorated with all you could want. The pool and gardens are just perfect and kept beautifully with lovely sunbeds and even better no rush to get a sunbed as there is one for everyone! Dean took us wine tasting which was great fun and not so much tasting as just plain drinking really but we loved it. Lesley and Dean are on hand to ask about places to visit - book restaurants or just give you local tips to enjoy your holiday. We had a lovely week and met some nice people and enjoyed a whole house last night meal cooked by a local chef and brought to the apartments to enjoy with some wine from Dean's Honesty Bar which we miss now we are home!!

“It met all our expectations and more.”
Reviewed 3 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Lovely holiday accommodation in pretty and well-maintained gardens, including a very nice pool of which the family made good use. The apartment was very well-equipped, clean and attractive. The owners were very friendly and extremely helpful with suggestions and advice. We would definitely go back again. There was so much to see and do in the local area, and the pretty hilltop town of Mogliano had most of the facilities that we needed.

“Beautiful location, great apartments and warm and welcoming hosts”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Caserma Carina was the first hit we found when we started searching for places to stay in Le Marche. As we ploughed through our search, and Caserma Carina kept coming up as a relevant hit, it became apparent that there wasn’t anything else out there that compared to it in terms of the location, the standard of accommodation, the price and the reviews - and after a one week stay there, it is clear why - Caserma Carina is set in a great location, offers a luxurious standard of accommodation for a very reasonable price and I can only but join in with all the previous reviews which have flagged this (together with the Le Marche province) as one of the hidden gems of Italy.

There are only four apartments in the renovated farmhouse and with a lovely pool and plenty of sunchairs and garden space (including outdoor eating areas) there was the perfect balance of having your own space without being isolated. Dean and Lesley keep the gardens and poolside immaculate (with plenty of inflatable toys for the kids or those adults who have an inner child at heart!) We had the Papavero apartment, on the first floor; it was beautifully fitted out with everything you could want – plenty of space for storage, a comfy sofa and bed, a large bathroom and a good kitchen and fridge. The air conditioning unit made all the difference and was a welcome respite in the 40 degree heat. The apartment is close to the nearby village of Mogliano which has a couple of decent restaurants and also a supermarket where you can pick up fruit, veg, deli meats etc. to have back at Caserma Carina, which was great on those nights we didn't want to go out or cook.

However, what really made the difference between a good holiday and an excellent holiday were Dean and Lesley. Dean is full of useful advice about where to go, how to get there and – most importantly – the best restaurants! Seeing as Le Marche is not that well featured in guidebooks, it was really helpful to have Dean give a local’s perspective about things to do and see. They were quick to respond to emails and really were the perfect hosts.

Bottom line – a fantastic stay in a beautiful location with excellent hosts. We wouldn’t hesitate to go back.

“Fantastic week at Caserma Carina!”
Reviewed 23 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had a fantastic week staying at Caserma Carina. My husband, 3 yr old daughter Sophie & I stayed in Tulipano, a one bedroom apartment with sofa bed in the living room. Caserma Carina is set in a beautiful peaceful location with views of the surrounding sunflowers. As most other reviewers have said, the grounds are lovely - the gardens are kept immaculate by Dean& Lesley's constant efforts. They are great hosts, Grace & Marley too - their 8 yr old daughter & dog - both loved equally by Sophie! We took Dean & Lesley's fantastic tips of where to eat & visit & were not disappointed. We visited Porto San Giorgo, about 45mins drive away, with it's lovely sandy beaches & fish restaurants 3 times during our stay & also went to Lake Fiastra and hired pedalos. The other days were spent with morning coffee & cake trips into Mogliano & Macerata with afternoons by the lovely pool - fully stocked with every inflatable & ball you could want! We met some lovely people who were also staying at Caserma Carina & enjoyed Dean's wine tasting at La Murola - delicious wine & stunning views!
I really can't fault our week in Le Marche, the area, the food, the wine & Caserma Carina all superb!

“One of the most relaxing holidays ever!”
Reviewed 22 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Hosts were fantastic (Dean, Lesley & Grace), wonderful location, beautiful pool, lots to do, local winetasting was fantastic so was visit to local leather producer. Lots of great restaurants, day trips to coast, mountains, mediaeval towns. This is the real Italy! You can't go wrong with this gorgeous spot. This was our second visit with my husband and I and our family joined us for week 2 with a small child under age of 2. We all had a great time and will be back.
Thanks to Dean, Lesley & Grace for making this holiday a wonderful experience.
