“Couldn't have been in a better place with better friends!”
Reviewed November 10, 2009 for a stay in October 2009

This was my second visit and it truely felt like coming home. We were greeted by our wonderful hosts, Bob and Ian, and sidekicks Hattie and Balzo as we came to the end of the driveway. Looking across the rolling hills, vineyards and olive groves at the surrounding hilltop towns instantly instilled a sense of peace and harmony.

Even in October there were gifts from the garden and we managed an incredible meal by supplementing with purchases of absolutley fresh food from an open market in one of the nearby towns.

I was happy, happy, happy for my entire visit and manage to capture a little of that feeling after coming back and looking through pictures. You couldn't find a better place to stay in this area!

“Perfect for relaxing and eating and drinking.”
Reviewed November 9, 2009 for a stay in November 2009

All the reviews are correct, nothing else you could want apart from an enforced diet when you get back to the UK.
We went on the gourmet olive break which was fabulous - great food, wine and company. A resounding success due to the lovely location and of course the hosts.

“Idyllic”
Reviewed November 2, 2009 for a stay in October 2009

We were in need of a complete rest and this is the place to go. Away from it all in "real Italy" it was not commercialised or touristy but beautiful and tranquil. It was like going back in time. Casal dei fichi is a beautifully restored farmhouse with wonderful views. It was so great to wake up every morning to such a view. The apartments were excellent, everything you needed and wonderful open fires. Bob and Ian were great hosts and gave great advice on where to go and what to do. Brilliant holiday and definately worth a visit. This is coming from a very hard to please English woman!!

“La dolce vita!”
Reviewed October 25, 2009 for a stay in July 2009

With joy we look back at the 2 weeks spent at the casale in July with our children and friends. We arrived in a quite, warm and peaceful environment. The colors of the landscape changed several several times and made us dreaming. A place return!

“perfect autumn holiday”
Reviewed October 22, 2009 for a stay in September 2009

What can I add to the rave reviews except that I totally agree with them . Before this holiday I was not a particular fan of Italy but a beautiful week at Casal dei Fichi has changed that. Welcome, setting, apartment all just right. Loved the help-yourself fruit and vegetable garden, and Bob and Ian showed the perfect level of friendliness and hospitality. We had the most relaxing holiday for years.
