Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Kevin,







I just wanted to say thanks - we had a great holiday at your house - it was just as described and very comfortable , and I would be interested to rent it again .



I also wanted to let you know that we had one breakage - the one you warned against - the Parasol . Although we hadn't gone out and left it up - we were just on the patio and a gust of wind took it out of its stand. The actual parasol was undamaged but one of the 'teeth' in the stand that holds it in place broke off. I would be happy to pay for a new a stand - if you let me know how much it costs.







kind regards

Nice location, nice house, amazing view

Nice house with pool. Beautiful view. The only inconvenient is the kitchen on upstairs. Very peaceful. We enjoyed our stay.

Stunning views, beautiful pool, and very tranquil

  • 5 of 5
Casa Dorato is set in the most beautiful location, midway between two hilltop villages. The house has a lovely garden with lawn, paved areas, and a fantastic swimming pool. The views from the property are absolutely astounding, and the house and gardens are not overlooked at all.

The only sounds you are likely to hear other than the local wildlife are the clanging of the sheep bells as the flock is moved down the hillside and then back up again in the evening - it truly is a peaceful and beautiful location.

The house itself is well equipped with a good kitchen and plenty of space. There were just two of us staying, but there are plenty of bedrooms and two bathrooms, so it could easily accommodate two families. The layout of the property is great with a bathroom and two bedrooms upstairs, as is the kitchen and lounge, and a bathroom and two bedrooms downstairs with a larger lounge. The kitchen is well-equipped and on the few occasions we didn't eat in one of the many local restaurants we used it to the full! The upstairs lounge has a large flat screen TV with many films available on hard drive if that's your thing, or you can borrow one of the many books that are there or argue your way through a board game or two! Casa Dorato also has decent speed wi-fi which was welcome.

The swimming pool is a welcome feature as it's a very good size and there were plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas surrounding it. Perfect for whiling the day away with a good book and a cold beer.

Kevin, the owner, was very helpful and answered all of our many questions promptly and fully. All in all, the process of booking was very easy, and the holiday we had extremely enjoyable.

If you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of Italy and relax in the countryside without being completely isolated then you could do no better than Casa Dorato. Highly recommended. We hope to visit again next year.

Nice place in Marche

  • 5 of 5
Relaxed house in an easy-going part of Italy - near enough to villages, restaurant. It's a schlep to the coast - but with a nice pool and lovely views, why bother. Not many tourists around here (+ive point) but people are friendly.
At least one car is essential, two even better.
Can be recommended for a large-ish family.

Beautifull villa and location

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to Le Marche within two years. The villa was as described and faultless. We found the split level accommodation ideal for our family of six, including two grandparents and two grandchildren. The pool was a great success. We particularly enjoyed the views of the countryside. The nearby villages of Penna San Giovanni and Monte San Martino were particularly attractive as was the larger town of Sarnano with its excellent market. Access to the mountains was within half an hours drive and the coast within about one hour. There is a host of information on the area available at the villa and three mountain bikes. We hope to return.

The most relaxing week I'd had in ages!

The most relaxing week I'd had in ages!
  • 5 of 5
I enjoyed a familiy holiday at the house in May this year. The first things that struck me on arrival were the total peace and quiet, the lovely views and the clean, fragrant air.

The house itself is gorgeous; 'modern-oldy worldy' in style. It's split over two levels and has a really homely feel. Everywhere was clean, tidy and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with crockery and utensils, which was great because we spent the half the week cooking!

The pool is lovely and big enought to have a really good swim, though when we went in May, the water was very cold. The area around the pool is quite expansive with both shaded and sunny spots, so you can stay out of the sun if you need to. We had a BBQ by the pool one of the evenings which was lovely.

If you like architecture, you'll love it round here. the countryside is dotted with picturesque hamlets and walled towns with winding cobbled streets. There are lots of places to get great food and even though we cooked at home, we ate out a lot as well. This was my first time in italy and I hadn't realised how spectacular authentic Italian food really is.

Overall, it was a fantasic week for the whole family and we are planning to return in 2011.

Nice view is accurate. House is a bit run down.

  • 3 of 5
We definitely agreed with some of the revues about the farmhouse. The view is beautiful on a clear day. However we found the house a bit run down. I'll give you a few examples:
- the toiliet seat was broken on arrival
- when we wanted to go cycling, one of the bikes had a flat tyre, and there was no repair kit
- the dishwasher was too small for 8 people
- one of the lounge chairs was broken.
We were very surprised when we rented the accommodation, that we could easily gain access to the house (the key being hidden outside) and that we weren't met by anyone ant that we didn't need to pay a deposit for breakages.
Then we discovered why!
In one of the folders made up by Kevin, it told us that the farmhouse was up for sale, and it fact had been for the past few years. Kevin and his family had grown tired of it and wanted to get rid of it!. That would explain the run down feeling it had. A pity, because it has a lot of potential.
Furthermore, the house is rather impractical. The kitchen is up two flights of stairs and the swimming pool is really not suitable for very small children, since the sides of the pool slope and children cannot get out very easily.
I hope that Kevin manages to sell the property soon, so that it can be restored to its full potential.
We really felt that it was rather overpriced(more than 2000 euros in the high season).

Owner's Response: Once the housekeeper was told of the broken toilet seat it was repaired at once. There are repair patches for the cycles in the draw in the main lounge.A new full size dishwasher was installed in October 2010. the lounge chair is a sun lounger chair which has been replaced. The house is located in an almost crime free area you can leave the door wide open 24 hours a day . Until now we rely on trust regarding damages if something is broken by the guest we expect it repaired or replaced , toilet seats, cups, glasses do get broken. we don't like the idea of someone checking up on what departing guests have damaged when they are ready to leave. We did have it up for sale but it has now not for sale there are various private reasons for this. Two flights of stairs is actually 10 steps. The pool is big and 2 metres deep at the deepest point it is ideal for swimming , juping in and having a great time the sides slope slightly this makes it easier to get out, it also has larges wide steps for getting in and out. A pool safe for very small children would be a paddling pool.We constantly upgrade the house since October this year we have renewed the sink, worktops, taps and an additional unit have been installed in the kitchen.we have replaced the beds in the 1st floor twin and replaced other mattresses .2 new wardrobes and 2 new chests of draws have been replaced in the bedrooms, a digital flat screen TV has also been put in the lounge as well as 2 new sofas the 3 upstairs sofas have had new covers. Lots of contact numbers are left at the house if guests have any concerns re the housekeeping ,garden, pool or any thing not working properly there is a phone number for them to ring and the response will be immediate. We try very hard to make everything as nice as possible for our clients we have never skimped on payments to local staff looking after the house. I think the high season price is a fair price for the size of the house and pool and for just 1 week in the ultimate prime time. A one bedroomed apartment in a block of 20 with a shared pool not much bigger than ours cost 950 euro for the same week in Porto Recanati this year? .
