Read below what our previous guests wrote about Lucertola in our guestbook:
"Every day we think about our wonderful holidays in Le Marche. Our stay at Lucertola is a joy to look back at. Your hospitality and relaxed way to treat your guests we have experienced as very pleasant. When I look outside now (rain and 15 °C ), the longing comes back to get the car out of the garage and head for the Marches again. While putting the photo's in their album our blood runs faster seeing it all again. The feeling of utter freedom is difficult to describe. We think that you in the Marche have discovered a feeling of "born to be free."
"...your hospitality and easy-going makes it so wonderful here, you can be yourself, actually, you're at home. ... suddenly I found out that this is our last day in Lucertola and I do not at all want to leave!!”
“Lucertola -this is a place to cherish - of which we have thoroughly enjoyed and found the peace and quiet which we so much needed. The view, the hospitality of you both will be in our minds for a long time."
"Things we'll remember about Lucertola: the warm welcome, fireflies, the sound of crickets, lucertolas falling from the gutter, the colours of the sea at Sirolo, those beds are so comfortable!, shopping in Fano and San Marino, the fortress of Mondavio, coming back to the view, peace and stars. Dirk and Marijke, it was wonderful!"
"We have had a great week here. The apartment was excellent. Nice; completey furbished. For us a week of recuperation, rest, walking and enjoying "la dolce vita". Thank you for your 'being here', the talks and your wonderful initiative you have started here in Italy."
".... we found ourselves in San Lorenzo in Campo at your beautiful country house where a person can enjoy rest and beautiful views, from Dirk's lovely breakfasts, shopping (the van is loaded with things purchased at all kind of markets!). Thank you for your super hospitality and we wish you all the luck in the world."
"What were the highlights? Firstly, this house, 'our' house. We are used to wonderful holiday environments ('we've been around') but nowhere so much attention was given to the decoration, the 'cortesia' (the important value of 'courtesy': taking into account the specialness, peculiarities of others) of Marijke and Dirk. Furthermore, we remember our day in Ancona: the marvellous 'cattedrale' and the view at the harbour, the scriptorium and the Dante library in Fonte Avellana..."
"We have enjoyed our stay here tremendously. Lots of culture; however, we also relaxed on the beach of Senigallia. Also thanks for all the tips, advises and ideas to make our vacation even nicer and interesting. We'' certainly meet again in Lucertola!"
"Lucertola, a place to regain your breath, because of the space, the light, the house and the warmth of you both. What a view! You have designed and decorated Antonella into a tasteful, comfortable and luxorious apartement, actually, the apartment you long to have as a vacation location. And the Marches are beautiful! Indeed Italy in one region. A wealth of undiscovered beauty is to be discovered in castles, churches and musea. Everywhere, we met nice and kind people, also because of you. In short, we have seen a lot (but not all) and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Lucertola was great - and this documentation, wow!"
"Lucertola....amidst a "walking" paradise!"
