Have just spent 3 nights at the Contrada Durano with hosts James and Diana. The room was spacious, very tastefully decorated and furnished. Bedding and towels were high quality and sparkling white. The breakfasts were excellent and varied and we very much enjoyed the evening meals - both used local ingredients. Wifi was a bit patchy, but there was a... More

James and Diana were so special and wonderful hosts. We left feeling as though we had made two very special friends. The Agriturismo was lovely--to lovely for words. Views to die for and the meals were simply amazing. We will definitely be back!

James, our host, is a wealth of information about all there is to see and do in the surrounding areas. Each day he sent us off with an ample breakfast and made sure to go over... More

Way off the beaten path and not too near touristy type attractions, which was precisely what I was seeking. Great hosts, excellent food, spacious clean... More

Friendly, well run, with magnificent views and superb breakfasts. The owner is British with a font of knowledge of where to go and what to see. The rooms were comfortable and everything in them worked, including the hairdryer

The Contrada Durano experience is an outstanding combination of gourmet dining, comfortable lodging, intelligent conversation, and a peaceful gorgeous location all done up with touches of humor and warmth. All this in a beautifully restored historic building. This was our second visit to Contrada Durano. Le Marche drew us back to explore the area on day trips. Ascoli Piceno is... More

Travelling to a Family Birthday Party and was recommended Contrada Durano for our accommodation and this was certainly an excellent recommendation. The booking was very easy on the internet and James provided us with very clear directions so locating the premises was easy. We had double rooms with a sitting room and en-suite shower room which was ideal for relaxing... More

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.
