“Another fabulous holiday at Caserma Carina”
Reviewed September 30, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We have recently returned from another fabulous holiday at Caserma Carina. Since discovering Le Marche and finding such a great place to stay we keep wanting to go back. Caserma Carina is a very special place, fabulous apartments, pool and gardens surrounded by fabulous countryside, it doesn't get much better. We stayed in Lavanda this year, a spacious, comfortable loft apartment with everything and more you could need for your stay and with fabulous views over the garden and across to the neighbouring hilltop town of Loro Piceno.

Dean and Lesley, not forgetting Grace, as ever, were fabulous hosts and welcomed us like old friends, as always nothing was too much trouble, their personal, friendly approach is just one of the many reasons that we do keep going back.

We have visited this area several times and love the scenery, the breathtaking views, the culture, the food, the wine and the best gelato in Italy. While we visited some of our favourite places we were still able to find new things to do and new places to discover, like cycling at the nearby Abbazia di Fiastra, the Pinacoteca at the charming hilltop town of Camerino, the castle at Tolentino and the big Saturday market at Civitanova Marche. We have some fabulous memories of our holiday, I think I have used the word fabulous just a few times too many but that's what our holiday at Caserma Carina was was…….fabulous. We have already booked for next year.

“Italy at it's best”
Reviewed August 31, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a fantastic week here at Caserma Carina that flew by all too quickly. Excellent hosts Lesley and Dean and of course Grace, superb apartment and facilities with stunning views-what more can you ask for ? This is the real Italy at it's best.
Definitely will return. We took our 'grown up' son and daughter who found it equally amazing. Wonderful trips to nearby Lake Fiastra and coastal villages-but would have been equally happy never moving from the pool ! And the views,well they are too beautiful to describe....breathtaking in every direction.....perfection.

“A Magical Holiday”

We have just returned from a magical stay at Caserma Carina. The apartments are spacious and have everything you need for a comfortable stay. The pool and gardens are immaculate and the views from the gardens are just amazing.

However it was the friendliness and hospitality of Dean Lesley and Gracie which really made for a wonderful holiday. Nothing was too much trouble from booking tables at local restaurants to providing directions and even checking the weather forecast for us ( we had some changeable days during our stay).

We will certainly be back and will definately recommend Caserma Carina to our friends.

“A fantastic relaxing stay”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We spent a fantastic week at caserma carina. I had worried the 1 bedroom apartment with sofabed wouldn't feel big enough for us...2 adults and 2 young children but I needn't have. It was very comfortable, modern and with everything we needed and more. A proper mattress on the sofa bed ensured good sleep.
Lesley and Dean are attentive and friendly with great local knowledge. Every recommendation they gave for restaurants, beaches etc were spot on. The pool and grounds are immaculate. We didn't want to leave.
Such a shame ( but lucky those who got in on time) that the apartment we needed for our growing family is booked already for next summer. However they deserve to be this popular.

“Lovely accommodation, beautiful location and fabulous hosts”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a really lovely holiday at Caserma Carina and couldn't rate it more highly. Having looked at all the reviews and the beautiful website (it really is as lovely as it looks) we were a little worried about our three small children disturbing the peace and tranquility, but we couldn't have been made more welcome. Dean and Lesley are extremely accommodating hosts and our stay was made all the more enjoyable by their lovely daughter Grace who our boys loved playing with. There isn't much information in guide books on Le Marche but you won't need it. Dean and Lesley gave us great tips on restaurants, day trips, sights - all tailored to our specific needs (child-friendly!). The Girasole apartment was perfect for us, very spacious and with its own enclosed garden but also opening straight onto the lovely gardens where the kids were very welcome to play. The pool is great with lots of space for relaxing and the views are stunning. The nearby village is equally pretty with amazing views, great restaurants and highly recommended gelaterias. An easy drive away, the beaches (Porto San Giorgio) were perfect for us - shallow, white sand, really well-looked after and great restaurants. We've never returned to a holiday location but we'd love to return to Caserma Carina and there is so much to do in the area that we've barely scratched the surface!

“Perfect place to stay as it is just so relaxing”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from a fabulous 10 days staying at Caserma Carina. This was our honeymoon and was the perfect place to stay as it was just so relaxing. The accommodation is lovely and the pool and grounds are beautifully kept and there are gorgeous views all around. Lesley, Dean and Grace are great hosts – very friendly and always keen to help with any suggestions for day trips or with places to eat. And they are so patient if you have your holiday head on and have to phone up for the directions to be repeated again!
Highly recommended.

“Friendly, beautiful and authentic - can't wait to go back!”

We chose to stay at Caserma Carina after finding an article in the Telegraph online that rated it one of the top ten family-friendly locations in Italy. As this was our first time abroad with our young son (10 months at the time), it was immensely helpful to know that all the basics (cot, high chair etc.) would be there waiting for us. In fact there was also a well-stocked toy cupboard which we sadly only discovered on our last day! Dean and Lesley couldn't have been more helpful over email when making all the arrangements, and it was good to know that there would be friendly faces there to help us make the most of the holiday once we arrived.

The villa itself is beautiful, and the shady garden around the pool is perfect for a toddler on the move. The area is fantastic - incredibly beautiful scenery with small golden towns and patchwork fields on the rolling hills surrounding it. We found (with the help of Dean's encyclopaedic knowledge) some wonderful places to eat which were very reasonably priced, and where people actually spoke Italian. Lesley and Dean are also willing to babysit, which was a real treat as we managed to have a couple of nights out by ourselves without worrying about an untried babysitter. They (and daughter Grace who loves children) are fantastic hosts and really went the extra mile for us - even ordering a takeaway for us from a local restaurant on one occasion when we couldn't leave the villa.

Our only real regret is that a week wasn't long enough to do the area justice. We did have a couple of slightly rainy days, and didn't manage to have a proper beach day (although we did venture to the charming town of Sirolo on the coast which is well worth a visit), so that's all to come when we visit next time!
