Dear Tricia and Thompson, from the first warm welcome to the farewell your hospitality and wonderful place made our stay a very special one. We will definitely keep in touch and revisit when possible. Thanks!!! Best Regards.
We were very impressed with the high standard of the apartment, the cleanliness and the spectacular views. Thompson and Tricia were very helpful and hospitable and always ready to give us advice and tips on where to go and what to see. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and our daughter particularly loved the pool.
Nice view, comfortabel house, privacy, nice hosts and the. Swimming pool was big enough for us. We enjoyed our stay.
As we are frequent visitors to the Marche region, the truly splendid and tranquil setting of Casa Coronada was not unexpected but he house itself was a delightful surprise. This is a wonderful layout for two couples or, like us, a small family. The pool was a particular delight after a day of hiking or touring the area. Favorites towns such as Ascoli Piceno and Macerata are within and easy drive as is the splendid Monte Conero park and beaches on the Adriatic. The charming village of Ripe San Ginesio makes for an excellent morning's hike. Oh, and the Sunday market at San Ginesio - I could go on and on.
Casa Coronada is a real gem to which we look forward to returning.

As seasoned travellers and enthusiastic users of self catering properties we award Casa Corovanda five stars for accommodation and location, representing excellent value for money.
The apartment is contemporary, sunny and airy, and very well equipped. The kitchen and living area have everything you can possibly need for both fine dining inside or on the terrace and for chilling out with books or dvds. The bedrooms are spacious, with comfortable beds and loads of storage space (including enough hangers!). Bathroom facilities are excellent.
The location is fabulous - private, peaceful and rural, with stunning views of the valley, yet within easy access by car to lovely medieval villages and towns, and glorious walks.
The owners, Tricia and Thompson, are very welcoming and helpful. Their knowledge and enthusiasm for their locality is inspiring and their advice on where to go, what to see and where to eat was greatly appreciated. They pointed us in the direction of great family-run restaurants which were excellent value for money - compared for example with the South of France.
We shall certainly be returning to Casa Corovanda again and have already recommended it to family and friends.

For the second year in a row we visit this wonderfull place for three weeks. Having dinner on the nice shaded terrace with a big dining table and comfortable chairs and in the meanwhile having a wide view over the mountains is perfect. The house and kitchen are very well equipped. The shutters and insect blindes on all doors and windows are a blessing as well as the big refrigerator and even a separate wine refrigerator to keep your Rosso Piceno on an ideal temperature :-). Thanks Thompson and Tricia for a nice stay. Lieve & Joris, Antwerp, Belgium
