“The place to get away from it all and relax”
Reviewed 8 September 2009 for a stay in August 2009

We found the Caserma Carina on the Alistair Sawday guide and were immediately attracted by the fact that you could do a cooking lesson whilst you were there. It was only when we arrived did we realise how stunning the place is, with beautiful sweeping views across the valley that included mountains and hilltop villages. Dean and Lesley immediately made us feel welcome, and within minutes of our arrival our shoulders had dropped and we had a glass of wine in our hands.

We ended up having half a day cooking course with a fantastic local chef and cooked some amazing food that fed up for the next few days. This was really a special part of the trip and would recommend to those that enjoy the cuisine of Italy and the region to try it out. It was very hands on, and the chef that taught us was brilliant.

Our gastronomic experience didn't end there. Dean arranged for us to go wine tasting at the local vineyard and where we were able to sample the local wines.

This was the first time we have been to Le Marche and were blown away by how beautiful and relaxing it was. It is full of old, hilltop towns that have fantastic local restaurants that produce fantastic local cuisine. My wife and I have spent time in Tuscany and would say this region beats it as it doesn't have the number of tourists and so is by far a more relaxing trip.

If you are looking a relaxing trip in a stunning setting with fantastic accommodation, this place is hard to beat.

“Our most relaxing holiday for years”
Reviewed 14 August 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 6 August 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 5 August 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 5 August 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 3 August 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 3 August 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...
