“Relaxing retreat”
Reviewed 24 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Lesley and Dean were wonderful hosts at this fabulously relaxing retreat. They simply couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable, helping with everything from advice on shops and day trips. Having lived in the area for so long, they were able to tailor their advice to our needs and got it spot on every time. Their skill as hosts is best demonstrated by the number of repeat guests who were staying at the same time as us. They have used great skill and hard work in transforming and maintaining the house and gardens, which made for a very comfortable stay. Many thanks for making us feel so welcome!

“Everything they said it was and more!!”
Reviewed 8 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This was our first visit to Caserma Carina as recommended by my brother who has been here many times, it was everything he said it was and much more. The views are absolutely amazing (especially the sunset) The perfect place if you want a week of total relaxation. Dean and Lesley are amazing hosts. Made us so welcome right from the start. Already looking forward to our next visit later this year.

“So relaxing, so Italian”
Reviewed 4 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

From the moment we arrived we felt instant relaxation. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. The accommodation is lovely and well equipped and so very peaceful.

We (a family of four) had the good fortune to discover Caserma Carina and its beautiful surrounding villages and towns for ten days over Easter 2017.

What a find!

British owners that are very knowledgeable of the region and can provide some great recommendations if you feel that you need a steer.

There is a good balance of homeliness and adventure (horse riding, driving across mountain ranges etc.) and all of this whilst being immersed in the beautiful heart of Italy. After a long enjoyable day out it's great to return to the farmhouse and have private accommodation in a tranquil setting with stunning views (and just about the freshest air I've ever breathed).

There are also many bigger towns within easy reach for some retail therapy and the Adriatic coast with its many beaches plus the amazing experience of the mountains that we were lucky enough to enjoy.

Dean and Leslie are firmly in the background but somehow readily available on the few occasions that you need their advice or help, not forgetting their daughter Grace and her lovely, placid dog Marley - he was a big hit!

An important note - we flew into Bologna and had a couple of nights there which was nice. The plan was to pick up the hire car from Bologna and enjoy a leisurely cruise down to Mogliano whilst taking in the whole experience.
However, one of the major car hire firms left us high and dry in Bologna (no transport, no hotel etc. On a bank holiday weekend) even though I had already paid in full in advance.
So there we were, stranded on the streets with all of our luggage and nowhere to go when Leslie (owner of farmhouse) returned our call within minutes and gave us the number of her trusted car hire contact in Ancona who turned out to be the most helpful guy I can remember meeting in my adult life.
What a saviour!

This guy (Enrico from Honda Ancona) saved the day, if not holiday, but it seemed like nothing to him at all.

All in all, a great holiday, delicious food and wine, the very best of Italy.

“A great place to stay”
Reviewed 28 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This was our first visit to Caserma Carina and we loved it. The apartment was spotless, comfortable, warm, full of character and had everything we needed for a home from home. We have visited this beautiful region many times and just cant stay away. It's so unspoilt, full of fantastic scenery, good food and lovely people. We couldn't take advantage of the pool and grounds as it was February but we were able to watch the sun go down with a glass of wine on the well positioned patio a couple of evenings when it was warm enough.

We cant thank Lesley, Dean and Grace enough for their warm welcome and cheerful smiles. They made us feel at home from the minute we arrived and nothing was too much trouble. They also gave us some very good wine!

We will hope fully return soon and have no hesitation in recommending this country house as a fantastic place to stay in a very special part of Italy.

“Another memorable stay at Caserma Carina”
Reviewed 16 October 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We were so looking forward to our holiday this year and yet again it did not disappoint. This was our seventh visit to Casema Carina, we love Italy and have travelled to lots of different places but always find ourselves returning to Mogliano. There is so much to see and to do, if you can tear yourself away from the beautiful gardens and pool at Caserma Carina. We love the spectacular scenery and the sleepy hilltop towns which come alive during the festivals. We visited lots of our favourite places and discovered new ones, the Abbey di Fiastra, the frescoes at Tollentino, Monte Conero and the beautiful coastline, the list goes on and on. Dean and Lesley are a great team supported by the very lovely Grace. Arriving at Caserma Carina we were greeted like old friends, we always feel relaxed the minute we get there, just what a holiday should be. We have lots of very fond memories and have booked for next year, we are looking forward to it already!

“The apartments and their surroundings are a haven of peace and tranquillity.”
Reviewed 11 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A gorgeous holiday with my art group. The place is set in the most beautiful country side, a painter's dream, and this year the weather was fantastic, nearly as hot as Sicily 2 weeks before though I think this is probably unusual so late in the year. It was a privilege to stay with such a lovely family and in such smart and spacious apartments with immaculate gardens and a swimming pool. The restaurants we visited served superb food,among the best I have had in Italy. There are loads of interesting places to visit- Sirolo, Macerata, Sarnano, ecc and in fact Mogliano itself is a great little town. The apartments and their surroundings are a haven of peace and tranquillity, a wonderful place for a relaxing holiday.

“Still Great After 10 Years !”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We've just visited Caserma Carina again for the 10th year in succession - and it just gets better!

Difficult to imagine now what the gardens looked like 10 years ago but thanks to the care lavished by Dean and Lesley they have matured beautifully and are a superb and tranquil oasis for relaxation and sunbathing. The pool is still immaculate as are the apartments which seem as fresh as ever.

We always enjoy our visits to the local restaurants - La Perla and Marina's in Mogliano and Da Rosa in the local abbey grounds - and of course the compulsory trip with Grace to Zanzibar for gelato !!

The trouble is we relax so much we never get round to seeing everything - even now there are sights and restaurants we still want to visit - guess we'll be back again soon to continue this brilliant experience - and to meet more new guests !
