“Outstanding”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

it doesn't get any better than this ... luxurious accommodation, beautiful surroundings, fabulous facilities, hosts who treated us like friends. You must visit the pretty town of Mogliano on market day and the bays around Monte Conero.

“Justifies the many excellent reviews”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We found that the high praise from previous reviewers still very much applies to Caserma Carina. Indeed, it's hard to fault this place and it's hard working and very friendly hosts. I would thoroughly recommend it (especially the large ground floor apartment we stayed in) to others.

“Another memorable stay at Caserma Carina”
Reviewed 17 November 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This was our fourth visit to Caserma Carina and once again it did not disappoint. We love Italy and have travelled to lots of places but since we have found Le Marche, which is surprisingly undiscovered, we keep wanting to go back. We love the scenery, the many places to visit and explore, the culture, the food, the wine and last but not least Caserma Carina.

We have some great memories of our stay, early morning swims and good conversation (thank you Dean), lazy days by the pool, bannanagram under the gazebo (thank you Grace), breathtaking views from the many hilltop villages, the best ever gelato, great markets and festivals and that glass of vino watching the sun go down in the garden. The list goes on and on…………….

We stayed in Papavero, a spacious apartment overlooking the garden, tastefully furnished and very well equipped with everything you could need for your stay. Dean and Lesley, supported by Grace, could not be more welcoming, they are great hosts who go out of their way to make sure you have a great holiday, one of the many reasons we keep gong back.

We love the area, we have Le Marche in our hearts, and have found somewhere special to stay, we have already booked for next year.

“Wonderful week at Caserma Carina on the annual Art Holiday”
Reviewed 10 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This was the annual art holiday with a great group of 'arty friends' and the 6th art trip that I have been on. Dean, Lesley & Grace were, as ever, the most helpful and perfect hosts. Dean took us all on daily sketching trips and we visited some beautiful mediaeval towns, villages in the hills and the mountains...with tasty packed lunches provided by Lesley. In the evenings we all went to some great restaurants and enjoyed fantastic food and sampled much of the fab local wine. Everyone produced some good drawings & paintings and we even had a little exhibition of all the art work produced at the end of the week, in the old palace, in Mogliano.
I also go to Caserma in April every year and this year also went back in early July for the annual Mogliano Festival. CC is the most perfect place and I love it! Such stunning views, incredible apartments, great swimming pool and such friendly hosts. I can't recommend it enough! My little bit of heaven and I can't wait to get back there next April for my 7th Easter holiday there!
A big thanks to Dean, lesley & Grace for making the trip such a success every year,

“Perfect week with friends sketching, sightseeing and dining well in the local area”
Reviewed 6 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This was my fourth visit with a group of 7 art loving friends. As before, Dean, Lesley and not forgetting Grace their daughter were perfect hosts. We were escorted by minibus to and from the airport and were so well looked after from beginning to end, The itinery was carefully planned for us but not set in stone so we could alter plans as we liked depending on weather conditions, events or places that interested us.
The larger apartment allowed us all to `work` together indoors on the odd days it was damp outside (this was October). The apartments as before were immaculate as were the pool and gardens.
They managed yet again to find us some lovely restaurants to eat in the evenings. Lesley also supplied us with some tasty picnics and evening meals, washed down with the local delicious wines.
The setting makes for a relaxing and inspiring holiday and we all returned home with enough ideas and material to keep us busy during the winter months ahead.

“A Marked Success”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The property,pool and garden are pretty and very well kept with beautiful views of neighbouring hilltop villages.
Situated on the outskirts of a village all basic needs are readily at hand.
Lesley , Dean and their daughter are exceptional hosts; fun, helpful and attentive without being intrusive. We particularly enjoyed the supply of local wine and chilled beverages kept in the laundry room; the honesty box system is very refreshing.
The apartments are well furnished and kept to a high standard of repair and cleanliness.
Having recommendations and local knowledge readily avaiable meant we could make the most of our first visit to this unspoilt area of Italy

“Lovely place to stay shame about the rules”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 for a stay in June 2013

person found this review helpful

This place is not sign posted so make sure you get directions from the owners. Also make sure you shop on the way as they only provide the very basics. This building has been partly restored and has a lovely swimming pool surrounded by a well maintained garden. We were staying for a week and as they could not accommodate us in one apartment for the full duration we stayed the first two days in the top apartment. It was a reasonable size but we found it very hot and stuffy as you are not allowed to keep the air con on if you leave the building. If you do it either turns its self-off or the owners switches it off. The rest of the week we stayed in an apartment at the back of the building on the second floor overlooking the countryside.. It was a very pleasant room, very clean and comfortable. Because this room did not get the sun it was a lot cooler. In spite of the weather not been very good we enjoyed the area and found the restaurants excellent value and quality. If you need any advice about where to go to visit or eat the owners are very happy to help. The only thing that spoilt our holiday here was that as soon as we arrived at 6pm we were bombarded with a litany of rules by the owner. This is sometimes the last thing you need after a long tiring journey. Whilst we appreciate that some people have no respect for other people’s property not everyone is tied with the same brush. The rules went on and on and on……….These were the air con, the rubbish to be put in the right bins at all times otherwise the owner would receive a £1000.00 fine, not to lose the door key to the apartment as it would cost him £500 to replace the door (seems they only have 1 key to each apartment?), do not sit on the sofas if you have any sun cream , do not sit on the loungers without a towel, do not try and put the umbrellas by the pool down as you may break them. A lot of these rules are surely common sense etc. The pool has a notice by it saying you must wear a cap when in the pool but no one seemed to adhere to that. We had to pay a deposit £200.00 and while we appreciate the owners are proud of what they have achieved and wish to keep it in good order for everyone to enjoy we felt all through our holiday we were worrying about whether we had kept to the rules.

Management Response
6 Nov 2013
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We’re sad to hear that you were not completely satisfied with your holiday.
When guests arrive (apart from very late at night) we always spend about 10 mins running through useful information about the area and apartments which includes some requests and quirks about the property. These really help to keep our accommodation in the best possible condition for future guests. We do appreciate that some are down to common sense, but unfortunately past experience has proved that certain items are worth mentioning.
Our damage deposit is purely for more serious damages caused, and we’ve never retained a single deposit in our 8 years of business.
Our aim at Caserma Carina is to offer a high quality of accommodation, in a friendly and relaxing environment with contented guests; therefore we are disappointed if you didn’t experience this.
