“Our most relaxing holiday for years”
Reviewed August 14, 2009 for a stay in August 2009

We went on this holiday expecting to spend a week exploring Le Marche, but found we could not tear ourselves away from Caserma Carina. Our two boys even turned down offers of kayaking and go-carting, preferring to stay by the pool. Dean and Lesley are genuinely happy to put every effort into helping you unwind and have the perfect holiday - nothing was too much trouble and they anticipated our needs even before we knew we had them! For example, we had booked tickets for the opera festival in Macerata and Dean told us exactly where to park and booked a table in a lovely restaurant for us. Lavanda apartment was much more spacious than it looked on the web site and easily accommodated two extra beds for large teenage boys. The air conditioning was one of the features that attracted us and it certainly helped us get a good night's sleep. The house is beautifully restored and furnished, the pool is lovely and the views are spectacular, but it is the warmth of the welcome from Dean and Lesley that make Caserma Carina such a very special place.

“Caserma Carina - My Idea of Heaven!”
Reviewed August 6, 2009 for a stay in July 2009

This must rate as our best holiday ever. At Caserma Carina we received a wonderfully warm welcome from our hosts, Dean and Lesley, who couldn't do enough to ensure we had the most relaxing two weeks. The apartment was top class, from the high quality furniture and fittings to the marvellously cool air conditioning (an absolute 'must' when stopping in this part of Italy during Summer!). The beautiful, clean pool, set in the immaculate gardens with its terrific views of the distant Sibillini mountains was a big hit with our teenage sons. The region offers so much to do and see, from the pretty old town of Mogliano (great little cafes and bars- Angels was our favourite) a short walk away, to the historic city of Macerata and the cool trips into the Sibillini, where lunch at the excellent value agriturismo was a highlight- two weeks is not enough. This is 'real' Italy; forget overpriced and over commercialised Tuscany and Umbria. Even the coast is less than an hour away at Porto San Giorgio-great fish restaurants.

“Just Gets Better !”
Reviewed August 5, 2009 for a stay in July 2009

We have just returned from our 4th visit to Caserma Carina - this time for our honeymoon and as part of a 3 centre stay in Italy. We also spent time in Liguria and Tuscany but Caserma Carina is just THE best place to chill and unwind.The apartments are so comfortable ( especially with the aircon) and spacious and are kept so clean and fresh. This time we were in top-floor Lavanda with great views over the surrounding countryside.

Dean Lesley & Grace are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Their help,thoughtfulness and generosity helped make the honeymoon really special.

This year - yet again - we had great intentions of visiting lots of new places but some days the temptation to just relax around the pool and garden was just too great -and we met some great fellow guests.

A real added attraction this year was the option to order-in genuine home-cooked Italian evening meals - cooked by Luisa one of Dean & Lesleys neighbours - proved very popular on several occasions!! ( try the pasta and rabbit !!)

Once they recognise you as a temporary resident of Caserma Carina, the people of Mogliano are so friendly and welcoming. We were lucky enough to be there for the annual town festival and spent 2 or 3 evenings along wth Dean & Lesley ( and Grace of course) and other fellow guests enjoying the festivities. Truly felt like ''real Italy''.

We'll be back again !!

“Fantastic,excellent,restful Holiday!”
Reviewed August 5, 2009 for a stay in July 2009

This was our second stay at Caserma Carina and was as delightful as last time. The apartments are so spacious and clean with everything you could want and more. Dean & Lesley are perfect hosts and are keen to help you get the most out of your stay whether it's relaxing by the gorgeous pool or enjoying the stunning scenery. This is truly the perfect location to experience a taste of rural Italy.

“Fabulous Family Holiday”
Reviewed August 3, 2009 for a stay in May 2009

We stayed in the 2 bedroom appartment (Girasole) which was perfect for a family with young children. The apartment was well kitted out with a selection of toys, books and games for the evenings in. The location was amazing with breathtaking views of the mountains from the lovely pool and gardens. The hosts Lesley & Dean were so friendly - offered great advice about local attractions, kiddie friendly beaches and places to eat. We have already booked our next stay at beautiful Caserma Carina.

“Beautiful Accommodation”
Reviewed August 3, 2009 for a stay in July 2009

Our extended family booked out the entire house for a week and all the apartments were beautifully decorated and well equipped. Lesley and Dean made us feel welcome and kept the place spotless throughout our stay. The pool was always warm and clean.The surrounding area is beautiful - the lake in the mountains are well worth a visit. For amazing gelato, try Zanzibar just up the road - delicious!!! Would highly recommend a visit...

“Well equipped apartments in a beautiful location and stunning views”
Reviewed July 30, 2009 for a stay in July 2009

This was our first time in Le Marche, and Caserma Carina was a lucky find. Dean and Lesley have sympathetically restored their half of the huge country house. The comfortable apartments are really well equipped and there is currently no charge for the air conditioning. The grounds are very pretty and well laid out and the pool area is clean with plenty of comfortable sunbeds. You do really need a car unless you are a keen walker who can make it up the hill to Mogliano (about 15 minutes walk). There is a really good restaurant on the edge of town which is nearer the accomodation and we did walk here, but is still uphill!!
