“The perfect Italian holiday”
Reviewed May 28, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We have just returned to the UK following our third visit to Casal dei Fichi. Bob and Ian are so good at what they do. Great hosts, handsome accommodation, beautiful views into the surrounding countryside. Like the background to a Renaissance painting the property sits in an area of hilltop villages framed against distant mountains. We have visited the Roman ruins at Urbasaglia, Urbino, the caves at Frasassi, the home of the Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi in Recanati and have now seen the Spring flowers on the summits of the Sibelline mountains. Following our hosts' advice we have had some wonderful meals off the tourist trail - this year the Osteria dei Fiori in Macerata was a particular highlight - and visited the potter Guiseppe Testa in Appignano. Such great value and beautiful bowls to take home in the hand luggage. Thinking about it I have failed to say how much we enjoy the weekly pizza parties and appreciate the beautiful swimming pool. Perfetto.

“Fantastico 2”
Reviewed May 26, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Super four day stay with good weather. Rossini apartment was delightful. Plenty of space for us and our lively two year old. A very relaxing time. We stocked up on food and wine locally and enjoyed the full size kitchen. Chickens, dogs, cats addded to the fun for our son. Pizza Afternoon was a highlight. Fifth trip here so we are biased! Enjoyed visiting nearby villages and the 'day to day'. Quality of Life 100%. Thanks to hosts Ian and Bob.

“Jewel in the crown”
Reviewed May 24, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This is our second visit and yet again we found the location wonderful. The views are fantastic and anyone seeking serenity this is the place for you! You do need a car as the area is so rural but otherwise the perfect holiday. Bob and Ian are the icing on the cake and cannot do enough to help their guests in whatever way they can. We'll definitely be visiting again!

“Great hospitality and accommodation in beautiful Marche”
Reviewed May 22, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Fantastic accommodation in the stunning Marche region of Italy. Bob and Ian have created a peaceful and relaxing environment with all the amenities needed for a great holiday. The weekly pizza party was great fun, a lovely touch and a great opportunity to get to know our hosts and fellow guests. We had a fantastic holiday and look forward to staying at Casal dei Fichi again soon.

“Relax with a beautiful view”
Reviewed May 20, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The grounds are beautiful, overlooking the hills. Bob and Ian were perfect hosts with tips for region, available when needed. Other guests friendly, but as much privacy available as you want. Our room was spacious and clean. Well equipped kitchen.

“Lovely tranquil spot”

We were here 3-4 years ago (see Nov 13 review). The view, as before, is like an old painting - farmland running into a valley and hills all around with small historic villages with a church at the top. The only thing missing is the haloed saint in the foreground. There are 2 new friendly dogs. Bob and Ian are just as welcoming and the apartment was just as clean, neat and comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped, and you'll find a supply of olive oil, some wine and a couple of local eggs to get you started. There are herbs and salad in the garden. Why have we been away so long? There was the familiar enjoyable pizza afternoon hosted by Bob and Ian.
.....Tranquil and we needed it after the mayhem of Stansted!
We discovered the well-stocked local shop. Don't forget the long lunch break! There is a butcher opposite. The always unfinished church was closed due to earthquake damage. You need a car - and if you're really into cooking, a couple of bay leaves!

“Yearning to return”
Reviewed February 26, 2017 for a stay in September 2016

When I close my eyes and think of what I would look for in a perfect vacation, my heart is warmed with thoughts of Casal dei Fichi and Le Marche. Having traveled to other famous areas in Italy countless times, this region was a new exploration for me, and within moments, I found it reminiscent of the forgotten Italy of days gone by. So much so that I wondered why I wasted the initial part of my trip anywhere else. Long winding roads, rolling hills, pitch perfect weather, beautiful sunshine, sparkling sea, delicious food and wine, and the type of hospitality that renders one speechless. And Casal dei Fichi is a punctuation point. Perfectly situated with a panoramic vista of mountains from the inn and perfect pool, apartments well-appointed with room enough to to spread out in comfort, a weekly pizza party that is a can't miss... all under the care of charming and helpful hosts (and instant friends) Bob and Ian who are perfect guardians of my most precious vacation memory. Yearning to return....
