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

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

We had a warm welcome from the lovely Concetta after a long climb up the lane to the old stone Agriturismo in its beautiful setting. James was a most kind and assiduous host and we enjoyed delicious meals and pleasant drinks for 3 nights in their company. Everything has been designed for maximum comfort and we had a spacious room... More

Jimmy was an engaging and most entertaining host; Concetta served up some wonderful dishes - we fell in love with her and her food! Not easy when our party of 6 that included two vegetarians and a coeliac who could not eat any form of gluten. The whole evening was relaxing and a true delight. Due to circumstances beyond our...

We visit a different region of Italy every year: Le Marche is stunning, Agriturismo Contrada Durano a jewel in its crown. What a charming, welcoming, button bursting place to stay. Jimmy and Concetta are truly amazing hosts. Believe the hype.
