Fil di Fumo is a well-situated B&B on the outskirts of historic Ascoli Piceno with good access to walking and trekking routes in the surrounding hills. The hosts Fernando and Iolanda provided us with wonderful breakfasts which we ate outside on the terrace overlooking their vineyard. Fernando - who speaks good English and can provide an enormous amount of information about the region - told us to help ourselves to any of the produce on the farm and we enjoyed the delicious figs and grapes which we often ate with our evening meal on the terrace. Accommodation was spacious and had everything we needed for self-catering. This is a wonderful base for exploring the beautiful Ascoli Piceno region and the owners also have a second B&B property in the Sibillini National Park for those who want to venture into the more mountainous terrain.
