Great hosts, excellent accommodation and lovely pool and grounds/views. Quality in house prosecco and 7 euros a bottle. What more can you ask?
We could not have wished for more. Dean and Lesley made us feel so very welcome and looked after our every need. Apart from the comfortable accommodation, the gardens are delightful and there is a beautiful swimming pool. The villa is set amongst the most glorious countryside and it is so quiet and peaceful. We went as a group and hopefully we shall all be keen to return next year.

We have been going to Caserma Carina now for a number of years, with a group of friends to paint and draw under the tuition of Teresa Witz. Lesley and Dean have always made us very welcome, to the point that we now feel we are visiting friends, who happen to live in a very beautiful and real part of Italy. The local people are very friendly and helpful, and the food and wine served in the restaurants is amazing.
The Apartments are large, comfortable, and furnished to a high standards. One of the things that we appreciate on this holiday are the views, the varying light and the silence that surrounds Caserma Carina. Sitting by the pool with a glass of wine watching and trying to paint the fantastic sunsets, is what to us, this holiday is all about.
Yet another (6th) fantastically successful visit to Casima Carina with eight 'arty' friends, taking over the four spacious and immaculate apartments for a week in October.
As always Dean and Lesley did all they possibly could to make our time there productive and enjoyable.
We were escorted by minibus to various locations for sketching and sightseeing and to nearby restaurants for some very memorable meals including wines and local liqueurs! Lesley also produced tasty picnics and memorable home made pizzas during which we all celebrated two of the group's birthdays.
Nothing was too much trouble for them in ensuring our holiday was enjoyed to the full.
All this and surrounded by the most beautiful countryside with hilltop towns in the distance. We even managed to paint the fantastic sunsets as the sun went down beyond the distant mountains.
Roll on October 2016!

My husband and I stayed at Caserma Carina for a week with two friends. We hired a car recommended by the owners and took trips out every day. Our directions were given to us by Lesley and Dean and nothing was too much trouble. This helped make our stay very relaxing and stress free. The accomadation was spotless and roomy. The scenery was breath taking situated between the mountains and countryside. The hospitality shown was outstanding and we hope to visit again. The owners daughter Grace was a credit to them and we have no hesitation recommending this holiday.
