Guest Reviews for Apartment Priora

Sue and Dave, England
“We have had a wonderful time in Appartamento Priora. We have appreciated all the thought and care you have put into Casa Carotondo. It has been lovely to come back after a walk to relax under the loggia with splendid views of the mountains. We have enjoyed your beautiful garden and resident wildlife. Thanks for your helpful advice and friendliness. The walking has been excellent in the autumn sunshine, including parts of the Grand Anello, Sentieri Naturi and an easy ascent of Monte Amandola from Pintura di Bolognola. We hope to return."

Jennifer and George, Scotland
“Thank you for introducing us to this idyllic part of Italy. The apartment is exceptional, the craftmanship and love put into it is much appreciated. The view from the 'terrazza' amazing, whatever the weather and to be able to walk on the ridge on a clear day one feels on top of the world. Thank you for everything. Hope to return for a longer stay in the future."

Paolo and Paola, Italy
“'Casa Carotondo' è un luogo dell'anima. Il prato davanti a casa, delimitato dai profumi e dai colori di mille piante diverse, e l'affaccio sui Monti Sibillini sono esperienze indimenticabili, che fanno tornare il desideria di metter mano ai 'Canti' del più grande fra i Marchigiani e releggere 'L'Infinito'. I proprietari, poi, hanno il dono di una pragmatica discrezione. Risultato: il sogiorno è stato perfetto e ci ha dato serenità anche in un momento difficile (terremoto del 24 agosto, 40 km più a sud)."

Christine and Hans-Peter, Germany
“Wir waren das erste Mal in den Marken und haben uns dank dieses wundervollen Fleckchen's 'Priora' sehr wohl gefühlt! Rob's Ratschläge zur Ausflügen, Wanderungen und Wegstrecken waren uns eine große Hilfe. Trotz vieler Menschen unterwegs, fanden wir hier in Casa Carotondo viel Ruhe und Entspannung. Vielen herzlichen Dank für die wundervoll eingerichtete Wohnung, eure Unterstützung und unaufdringliche, aber stets freundliche Gastfreundschaft. Vanessa, dein Deutsch ist wunderbar und wir haben es genossen in unserer Muttersprache mit dir zu sprechen. Wir wünschen euch alles erdenklich Gute(!) und auf ein Wiedershen!"

Frank and Nelly, Netherlands
“Where to begin? What a great place? The wonderful view? The colourful flowers? The bright sun and the cooling shadow in front of our apartment? The rustic, and at the same time, original interior. In all that we felt your efforts, your energy, your hospitality. To way 'we had a great time' only describes our feelings superficially. Thank you very much for this wonderful week (and for the advice with the dog ....) and so much more. Thank you for dedicating so many years of your life to create this magic place. Ci vediamo!"

Enrica and Roberto, Italy
“Abbiamo soggiornato qui una settimana. La struttura è conforme alle aspettative: tipica, dotato di ogni confort, ben curata, e con un paessaggio fantastico. Il canto degli uccelini vi accompagne per tutta la giornata. Rob e Vanessa, i proprietari, sono discreti ed al bisogno cordiali e disponibile. Il luogo sembre speduto ma in pochi minuti si raggiungono i borghi vicini, le montagne incantevoli, i boschi, i fiume ed i luoghi a poca distanza. Ci siamo trovati molto bene."

Marten and Merle, South Africa
“We could not have chosen a better place to start our long holiday in Italy.Thank you for your kindness and generosity. Those strawberries were delicious, also many thanks for giving our herb plants more space in which to grow. We shall miss the frogs and birdsong,the beautiful views and comfortable apartment. Best of luck for the future, may you always make the right choices and enjoy life to the fullest."

Evelyn and Hans, Austria
“Dear Vanessa, Dear Rob, Thank you for sharing your little paradise with us. We enjoyed our stay a lot and we felt at home in Priora. But time is flying ... We wish you all the best and we are looking forward to tasting your homemade olive oil (extra-vergine, of course) when we come back."

Anja and Herbert, Germany
“Die Zeit in der Priora war wieder schön und in der Marche. Der Ausblick auf das Sibillini Gebirge nach wie vor wunderschön und das Vogelgeswitscher sehr schön. Die kalten Abende waren mit dem Holz angenehmer und zum Abschluß an den wärmeren Tagen kamen sogar die Lucciola am Abend. Weiter viel Erfolg."

Sebastian, Maria and Jeschua (3), Germany
“Although our holidays started with a breakdown of our car - just 3,5 km to our destination we spent two great weeks here. This place is not just special because of the magnificent view and the lovely apartment but because of you - Rob and Vanessa. Thank you for everything ... towing the car (more than one time), taking us for a walk, to the lake, shopping ... and for opening your Schwimmteich. We enjoyed the evening with you very much and we hope to return soon. We will keep you in mind."

Wim and Arna, Netherlands
“We had a lovely week in this house. It is a nice place to be here! The house is clean, comfortable and the view is magnific. It is a pity to go! We have done very much and we will recommend our friends (who loves the rest and the nature) to go to this address! Thanks a lot, you are good hostess"

Bernardo and Viviana, Germany
“We had a lovely time at Priora. Both the apartment and the surroundings are of an astonishing beauty. Priora is the true 'balcony to the Sibillini Mountains'! We are delighted with your well kept Italian garden, where we recognize the expert hand of the English tradition! The apartment interior is also beautifully furnished and in very good quality, the kitchen fully - I mean fully - equipped! We thank you very much for your hospitality and hope to repeat the experience very soon. All the best!"

Christine and Thomas, Germany
“Wir danken den Göttern für das Sibillinische Paradies und das entsprechende Wetter und Rob und Vanessa für Ihr zauberhaftes Haus - und Gartenidyll und die wunderbare Gastfreundschaft. Der Höhepunkt waren am letzten Abend die tanzenden Glühwürmchen bei Vollmund!"

Anja and Herbie, Germany
“Liebe Vanessa, Lieber Rob, (lieber Chico), die Zeit in dem Appartment 'Priora' haben wir wieder sehr genossen. Es war sehr schön auf der Casa Carotondo bei Euch. Der Blick auf das Sibillini Gebirge jeden Morgen wieder ein Traum und die umliegenden Dörfer laden zum Verweilen ein bei einem Espresso. Wir kommen wieder!!! Sunny greetings!

John and Ron, Netherlands
“Great hospitality by the hosts. Rob and Vanessa. It seemed that we had arrived in paradise, and yes it is the paradise!! Very neat, complete and very clean apartment ... Beautiful nature and environment with the typical beautiful Italian mountain villages. Sometimes you imagined you 50 years back in time. Beautiful! And if you wanted to stay at the apartment it is from the beginning to end of the day enjoying the beautiful views to the mountains. Here you will really relax! ps: and if you had any questions or problems, Rob and Vanessa were always ready to help ... TOP! Absolutely recommended by friends or family. Earned five stars!!!! "

Constanze and Martin, Germany
“What a paradise! We could have spent the whole day on the terrace, no matter whether there was the sun or rain, the full moon or the milky way above. Dear Vanessa, dear Rob: thank you very much for the warm welcome, for being so caring. And for all the good tips, especially to Refugio Fargno. We wish you the best!"

Kev and Jan, England
“Thank you Rob and Vanessa. Have had perfect lazy holiday. Fantastic views, very friendly people, great foods and wine. Really enjoyed 'Le Clarisse' in Sarnano where food is a passion."

Charles and Michele, England
“We have had a most wonderful holiday! The accommodation is very good and everything we needed was supplied to a high standard. Weather has been just right - hot but not too hot. The countryside is lovely the scenery fantastic and the walking amongst the wild flowers beautiful! Last but by no means least - Vanessa and Rob have been perfect hosts!!"

Barbara and Walter, Germany
“Liebe Vanessa, Lieber Rob, die zwei Wochen sind wie im Fluge vergangen und wir möchten uns für den wunderschönen Urlaub bei Euch bedanken. Das Wetter war in der ersten Woche hochsommerlich und stabil. Wir haben den M. Vettore erwandert und die grandiose Aussicht genossen. Haben im Lago di Fiastra gebadet, sind zur Cascate dell'Aquasanta und durch die Gole dell'Infernaccio gewandert und konnten vom Monte Bero Casa Carotondo mit dem Fernglas sehen. Besonders beeindruckt hat uns die Vielfall der wilden Blumen. In der zweiten Woche Sightseeing: Macerata, Tolentino, Camerino, Fermo. Wie im letzten Jahr haben wir uns in der Priora sehr wohl gefühlt, uns gut erholt und die himmlische Ruhe und die tolle Aussicht auf die Monti Sibillini von der Terrasse genossen. Danke für Alles! Wir wünschen Euch alles Gute! Bis zum nächsten Mal!"

Petra, Germany
“Dear Vanessa, dear Rob, thank you for a wonderful week in this wonderful holiday home and - by the way- for rescuing my holiday! Best wishes. ”

Karsten, Ulli and Lena, Germany
“Liebe Vanessa, Lieber Rob! It was great here! Although the weather was not the best, we enjoyed the landscape, the small villages and especially the nice and cosy ('gemütlich') appartment! The view to the mountains, the relaxed environment and your friendly help made our stay here great. Also Lena, our 6 months old daughter enjoyed it. When we plan to visit Italy again, we will come here again! Best Regards.”

Herbert and Anja, Germany
“Liebe Vanessa, Lieber Rob, die Priora ist in Wirklichkeit viel schöner als die Fotos's es wiederspiegeln. Man fühlt sich gleich zu Hause - so wohnlich und gemütlich ist es eingerichtet. Frühstück auf der Terasse mit Blick auf die Sibyllinischen Berge ist einfach gigantisch und Natur pur - schön. Leider ließen es Abends die Temperaturen nicht sehr oft zu, daß man auch Abends draußen genießen konnte. Für uns ist es das zweite Mal in den Marken und bestimmt nicht das letzte Mal. Die Landschaft, die bezauberlichen Dörfer/Orte, Land und Leute, 'La dolce Vita' ist zu schön. Viel Erfolg bei Euren Endarbeiten beim Schwimmteich und bleibt so wie Ihr seid!”

Walter and Barbara, Germany
“Liebe Vanessa, Lieber Rob, leider sind die 12 Tage viel zu schnell vergangen und etwas wehmutig fahren wir nach Hause. Vom ersten Augenblick an haben wir uns im Casa Carotondo wohlgefühlt, haben die Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit, die geschmackvolle Einrichtung der Wohnung und die tolle Aussicht von der Terrasse genossen. Danke für die Tipps und Wanderempfehlungen in die Monti Sibillini!
Es gibt noch vieles zu sehen und zu entdecken ....! Wir wünschen Euch alles Gute und viele zufriedene Gäste.”
