“Stunning views! Fantastic place to relax!”
Reviewed July 28, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

What a remarkable find! The whole area is beautiful - lots of rolling hills many with small towns, each a gem in their own right.

Each morning we got up, picked fresh fruit and vegetables from Bob's garden for breakfast. Great hosts, very friendly and helpful and organized a great pizza evening where we had great fun making pizzas in their brick oven (see photo), met the other guests and enjoyed local wines.

Many of the local towns have annual summer fairs and markets and we found many great restaurants, bars and coffee shops.

But best of all was just being able to relax. Each apartment has its own private outside area with stunning views all around. Add great hosts to a great place and it's a place that we definitely return to.

“What a great place!”
Reviewed July 27, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Farmhouse beautifully restored, great attention to detail, beautiful views, very tranquil and serene. Fresh produce to pick - loved being able to pluck figs straight from the tree :-) Bob and Ian are the friendliest and most cheerful hosts - their pizza night was fun - they even provided vegan cheese :-) Great place to go if you are veggie - they totally understand. Would definitely go back again! Oh, and the local wines are great!

“Never heard of Le Marche before - glad we found it.”
Reviewed July 19, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We were looking for somewhere to relax after a week in Rome and Naples and chose Casal dei Fichi on the strength of reviews here. It was an excellent choice. As mentioned elsewhere, Bob and Ian are excellent hosts and do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. Our boys (8 & 11) would have happily stayed around the house the whole week and used the pool. The views are stunning. But there is also good walking in the area, beaches, historical sites, pretty villages and excellent food. If like us you knew nothing about the area, don't worry - you'll have a great time.

“A great place to stay in Le Marche”
Reviewed July 16, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We stayed at Casal dei Fichi for 2 weeks in June/July 2011. The 6 apartments for couples/small family are very well presented and each has a sitting out area. They are all spacious with nice furnishings. The kitchen in our apartment was separate and had a dish washer, full oven and microwave - unusual for this part of Italy. There is a DVD and book library available. The Pizza evenings on Mondays are such a good idea and an opportunity for everyone to get aquainted. Bob & Ian are excellent hosts and added much to our enjoyment of the holiday. The area is not as well-known as Tuscany and Umbria but is stunningly beautiful and with so many interesting places to see, will not dissappoint. We highly recommend this property.

“Had a wonderful relaxing week and recharged my batteries”
Reviewed July 12, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

I enjoyed my first stay immensely. Bob and Ian's hospitality was excellent. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The apartment I stayed in (Ricci) was very comfortable, quiet and a lovely base for my stay. The location and scenery is stunning, especially the view from the pool. I made the effort to get up at 5 am on my last day to sit by the pool and watch the sun rise over the distant hill-top towns. The provision of organic produce from the vegetable garden, happy free range hens and fig trees was a treat. With local fine wine available at 7.5 Euro's for a 5 litre flagon, it was hard to go wrong ! I hope to return next year. A car is probably necessary to enjoyall the region has to offer. I was told by an Italian just before my trip that Marche has the highest average mortality rate in Italy, no doubt because of the relaxed life style there.

“Fantastico!”
Reviewed July 10, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

This was our third trip to Casal dei Fichi and this time we used the week as a relaxing break.

The magic of Casal dei Fichi are (1) the excellent facilities and with temperatures of circa 34C the pool was refreshing indeed (2) the spacious and cool rooms (3) the scenery (you have to rub your eyes to make sure you are not imagining the beautiful views) (4) hosts Bob & Ian who are friendly and relaxed, and know the best places to go like Fermo.

On a practical note the car parking is good, the wireless internet is a boon, and the kitchen is fully equipped for all you might need. The highlight of the week, well it was a pizza evening hosted around a massive outdoor pizza oven. Great fun, and very tasty.

Feeling fully refreshed after the week long holiday, thank you Casal dei Fichi!

“Provisionally booked already for next year!!”
Reviewed July 9, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We had a lovely holiday at Casal dei Fichi. The location is beautiful, the appartments very comfortable, the pool so inviting and Bob and Ian, together with Basol and Hattie, made for great hosts. Pizza night was such fun and it was altogether a really relaxing holiday - just what we needed. Thank you Bob and Ian and we look forward to seeing you again next year.
