Okay so I'm a little late in writing this review. My husband and I stayed here April 2009. we were greeted by Jimmy and Concetta in the quaint lobby with a cocktail. Loved this place. Way off the beaten path and not too near touristy type attractions, which was precisely what I was seeking. Great hosts, excellent food, spacious clean... More

Friendly, well run, with magnificent views and superb breakfasts. The owner is British with a font of knowledge of where to go and what to see. The rooms were comfortable and everything in them worked, including the hairdryer

The Contrada Durano experience is an outstanding combination of gourmet dining, comfortable lodging, intelligent conversation, and a peaceful gorgeous location all done up with touches of humor and warmth. All this in a beautifully restored historic building. This was our second visit to Contrada Durano. Le Marche drew us back to explore the area on day trips. Ascoli Piceno is... More

Travelling to a Family Birthday Party and was recommended Contrada Durano for our accommodation and this was certainly an excellent recommendation. The booking was very easy on the internet and James provided us with very clear directions so locating the premises was easy. We had double rooms with a sitting room and en-suite shower room which was ideal for relaxing... More

We have just had the privalage of another wonderful NY break with James and Concetta at Contrada Durano. Food was as always outstanding, our hosts attentive, warm and charming, rooms very comfortable. This is an outstanding agritourismo, beautifully and sympathetically restored, set in a tranquil area of outstanding beauty yet close to the sea and mountains. We always return smiling... More

Thanks again to James & Concetta. Our fourth trip to Contrada, and never disappointed. Excellent hosts, James very helpful with everything you need, and Italian master chef Concetta, great food. We will return.

My wife and I had the very great pleasure of staying at Contrada Durano on New Year's Eve. It was our second stay although we have dined on Concetta's magnificent cuisine a number of times when we have been in Le Marche. It was yet again a truly wonderful experience. There are not enough superlatives to describe the experience of... More

We first found Jimmy and Concetta at the end of a long frustrating day driving on one of our first trips to Italy. Despite not booking they warmly welcomed us and the stress just drifted away. The rooms are delightful and comfortable with amazing views and comfortable beds; Jimmy is an engaging host with a great taste in wine and... More

This was our fist visit to Le Marche and we will definitely be back. James and his Sicillian born wife Concetta run a unique agriturismo set in a beautiful location within striking distance of seaside and mountains. The house is old and tastefully modernised, retaining its traditional character. James and Concetta are excellent hosts, being helpful, friendly and great fun... More

Our dinner for eight was wonderful and Concetta and James made us all feel like family. We actually did a "test" run up the mountain road the day prior to our reservation. They sent us back to Casale Monastero with the most beautiful tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini and onions. The farm-to-table menu using all their fresh vegetables and Concetta's cooking skills,... More
