Hey from james sebastian

Member since August 2012 | 24,196 hits
Yes, it's us, Concetta and Jimmy. We are the owners but we also live and work here too.

We do not leave to others the management of our place. Nevertheless it is a group effort here, there is Graziella our housekeeper who ensures that the rooms are as clean as in her own house, Sandro our solid agricultural worker. Concetta is an accomplished chef, Jimmy besides growing much of the food used in the kitchen, chooses and selects the wines served in our restaurant, waits at the tables and assists guests. The results are that Contrada Durano has been in business for over 10 years with a truly international clientele coming from over 15 different countries with a fortunately high rate of repeat business. If yoùd like to know what our guests think of this place you can read their comments on Trip Advisor..and no we didn't write them neither did we sollicite them to write.

Area hills
The house is situated on hillside at 580 metres above sea level. There are stunning views across rolling hills as far as the Adriatic coast and the massif of Monte Conero. We are 15 minutes by car from the Parco Nazionale dei Monti Sibillini, with it's peaks, woods, wild flowers, lakes and a short drive from the beautiful cities of Ascoli Piceno, Macerata and Fermo. There are also numerous tiny medieval villages to visit at only a few minutes from Contrada Durano some of which vant the presence of important works of art like the Crivelli pictures in the nearby village of Monte San Martino. For those who want to shop suprisingly the area offers a wealth of important factory outlets of top fashion brands like Tod's, Prada and Nazzereno Gabrielli and others. In late May and early June not to be missed are the wild flowers on the piano grande near casteluccio. In july and August on the hot days a trip to lake Fiastra or the flat sandy beaches of Grottamare and San Benedetto are a must. For those who don't want to drive far a walk thru the private woods behind the house provide a shady contact with an uncontaminated nature up to the villages of Smerillo and Montefalcone. During the autumn one can enjoy gourmet meals of wild boar, truffles, funghi
and chestnuts. Airports served by international destinations Ancona and Pescara are only an hour and a half away. Rome is around 3 hours and at less than three hours one can be in Assisi or get here from Tuscany.

Posto immerso nella natura, a pochi passi da Smerillo, un luogo magico e incantato. Camera spaziosa e funzionale, letto comodo e silenzio assoluto. I gestori stupendi, gentili e premurosi oltre che professionali. Per chi volesse staccare da tutto e tutti il posto è perfetto, e permette di spostarsi facilmente in pochi minuti verso Foce, Montemonaco, Amandola o Montefortino. Torneremo sicuramente!

Abbiamo soggiornato per una settimana da Jimmy e Marina e ci hanno fatti sentire come a casa. Molto dolci e premurosi entrambi. Abbiamo apprezzato la pulizia molto curata degli ambienti, una colazione super e con prodotti home made, le ampie camere/bagni ma soprattutto la piacevole compagnia da parte dei gestori. La struttura è immersa nel verde e nella quiete più totale, il che permette di staccare dal tutto dalla frenetica quotidianità. Le camere, ma in generale anche gli ambienti comuni, sono arredati con gusto e mantenendo lo stile della struttura. Ho adorato la sala colazioni che per me ha un'atmosfera molto bella con la luce del mattino. Un'esperienza per noi quindi da ripetere quanto prima.

Il posto è stupendo, ottimo per passare dei momenti di totale relax al di fuori del caos della città. I gestori sono delle persone squisite, sempre disponibili per ogni esigenza e pronte a dare ottimi consigli per i posti da visitare nei dintorni. Che dire delle colazioni, assolutamente ottime. Ogni giorno prodotti diversi con dolci e marmellate preparate da loro. Sicuramente da tornarci; è stata una piacevole scoperta!

Stanza ampia con disimpegno e bel bagno, suppellettili di gusto (metterei solo un materasso più soffice), che si affaccia direttamente su un panorama mozzafiato. Anche nei giorni di maggior calura, grazie alla verandina esterna non si soffre il caldo. Tutt'intorno solo campi e boschi. Accoglienza molto cordiale. Colazione generosa.

Gentilissimo ed affabilissimo proprietario inglese della struttura ubicata in mezzo ad un bosco, è un vecchio casale ristrutturato perfettamente lasciando intatto lo stile delle vecchie case coloniche marchigiane. la strada per arrivarci non è così agevole, ma di notte abbiamo incontrato un piccolo bamby che saltellava ai bordi ed un cucciolo di tasso ci ha attraversato la strada.
