“Utterly Brilliant”
Reviewed January 8, 2013 for a stay in June 2012

This was our second visit to Casal dei Fichi - last year we stayed at the beginning of September and this year June. Both times it was exquisite - June has the addition of fireflies and it is cooler and September has the addition of ripe figs! The apartments are so lovely and of a really high standard. The dogs Balsa ( or Balso) and Hetty have wonderful characters provide constant entertainment and are hilarious - as are Bob and Ian - the owners, welcoming, helpful and funny. The whole area is just so lovely so many wonderful places to visit and eat. Bob and Ian's pizza party is a legend! Both visits have been utterly brilliant ...... my only caution are the mosquitoes be prepared for them !!!!

“Just what we were looking for”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

What we wanted was a peaceful beautiful private accommodation, with access to the outdoor living space and a variety of day trips not too far away, as I brought my 6 month old baby with me, to meet up with my parents for a visit. We rented two of the Casal dei Fichi apartments. We nearly had too much space! We could not have dreamed for a more comfortable place to spend a week with extended family. My mom and I participated in two days of cooking lessons at a big restaurant in a nearby town. Since the chef taught in Italian, Casal dei Fichi host Bob accompanied us and did a fantastic job translating! We really enjoyed ourselves. Both Bob and Ian are so gracious and helpful, while still allowing you your privacy and the feeling that you are staying in an independent space. In my experience your accommodation can really make a difference to the quality of your vacation. This was perfect. I would return with my husband and I would highly recommend staying at Casal dei Fichi to couples and families alike.

One of my favourite things was making a cappuccino first thing in the morning and sitting out in our little garden in the sunshine. The setting is absolutely breathtaking.

“Beautiful location - wonderful hosts”
Reviewed October 17, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Casal dei Fichi is located in a beautiful area and Ian and Bob were wonderful hosts who went out of their way to be helpful. The accomodations were teriffic and included everything we needed. Ian and Bob arranged some wonderful outings that we really enjoyed and we had a lot of fun exploring the many small towns in the area. Food, service and location were even better than we had hoped for and I highly recomment staying at Casal dei Fichi.

“Another fabulous stay,”
Reviewed October 9, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

The perfect place and the perfect hosts. Bob and Ian always have great recommendations for places to eat and things to do. And can't forget Balzo & Hattie to come running to say hi. A quick 2 day stay to celebrate our anniversary
and again another great stay in a very comfortable and relaxing apartment, fully equipped even with some local wine and fresh eggs from the chickens. Beautiful grounds to sit and relax with some wine overlooking the pool and rolling hills. We will definitely be back again.

“Great view, great location, great hosts!!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We had heard great things about Casal Dei Fichi and they are all true! It was just the holiday that we wanted, the apartment was a home from home with everything you required, the views were breath taking and every apartment has there own piece of outside space, so no rushing to put a towel on your bed! It was very relaxing, the weather was wonderful and the hosts, Bob & Ian were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble for them, they were very knowledgable regarding the local area, do ask them how to get to the local vin yard, good wine and cheap! Also ask about the 'Fish Restaurant' it is a little drive away but well worth the visit. We would definatly go again.

“picture postcard Italy and a wonderfully relaxing stay. Amazing.”
Reviewed September 1, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

My boyfriend and I enjoyed 4 wonderful days at Casal dei Fichi. We flew out to meet good friends of ours, another couple, who were staying there for a week. They had stayed there the year before and highly recommended it to us. It was the first time they had returned to a holiday destination and so when they asked if we wanted to join them for a few days - how could we refuse? We were not disappointed. In fact, as we drove down the drive to be greeted by Hattie, one of the lovely resident dogs, we could tell we had come across a gem. Despite the fact it was late, the contours of the rolling hillside backdrop were just about visible and even in the dark, looked dramatic. As we woke up to sunshine and blue skies the next day, we were blown away by the picture postcard view - rooftop towns nestled amongst rolling hills - perfect. The apartment we stayed in was cute and comfortable and contained everything we needed. The hosts Bob and Ian were always on hand to answer any questions or recommend any places to visit yet were never imposing. Relaxation seems to be top of the agenda here. The surrounding area is stunning and has a wealth of stuff to see and do. We visited the gorgeous seaside town of Sirolo which has a beautiful white pebble beach and a lovely area with cafes at the top of the hill which is perfect for a late afternoon drink looking out over the cliff side views of the Adriatic. There are local vineyards if you fancy some wine tasting and a plethora of good places to eat. And, if you fancy the odd night in, you can sample some of the delicious home grown organic vegetables from the garden or create your own pizza cooked in the ovens in the garden during Bob and Ian's pizza and wine night which takes place every Monday when a lot of the local restaurants are closed. And for those days when you just want to do nothing at all, a dip in the pool followed by a laze on one of the sun loungers looking out across the view is the ultimate way to relax. I think we may follow in our friend's footsteps as returning guests as Casal dei Fichi is definitely somewhere we'd love to go back to.
