Several members of our family rented three of the six apartments last week at Casal dei Fichi after a family member stayed last year and loved it. It is easy to see why the majority of business at Casal dei Fichi is repeat. The owners, Bob and Ian make you feel like so welcome even before you arrive and just make it feel like you're staying with friends while you are there. The place is so relaxed, with each apartment tastefully decorated, spacious, comfortable and well-appointed. The additional finishing touches included a bottle of wine from the local vineyard on arrival, eggs from their chickens and some of their very own olive oil. There were plenty of fruit trees, a herb garden and vegetable patch you could also help yourself to for free.
Bob and Ian were on hand to assist with anything you may need - in our case it was an emergency dentist - they phoned and made an appointment and Ian even took us out there personally whilst also translating (unfortunately my grasp of Italian doesn't run to "root canal"!)
As there was a traditional wood fired pizza oven, Monday night was pizza night where all guests got to create their own pizza - at no charge! Everyone just brings a bottle and gets to meet the other guests. It was a really pleasant evening.
We have never stayed anywhere that made you so feel so instantly at home. This, coupled with the stunning surroundings and a fabulous pool make it a must-see destination for families, couples, singles, or anyone!
Tip: you're best off hiring a 4x4 if you can or something with higher ground clearance, as some of the surrounding roads, whilst beautiful, are a bit rustic, although we did manage ok in a medium sized hatchback.
The perfect place to relax, admire the view, and enjoy the Le Marche countryside.
Casal dei Fichi has everything you would expect and more - clean and homely apartments, a lovely pool and terrace from where you can marvel at the view, helpful and fun hosts, very friendly dogs, and the much-mentioned weekly pizza party, where there are always plenty of laughs.
One of our favourite slices of paradise.
Marche is unspoiled, the apartments are very well appointed, Bob and Ian are fantastic hosts and the location is amazing. What more could you want? We had 2 fab weeks at Casal dei Fichi - time for a bit of exploring and a lot of R&R. The temperatures were in the high 30s but a lovely breeze blows across the hillside so we weren't uncomfortable. We'll definitely go back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it .
I'm finding it very difficult to write a review on Casal Dei Fichi as words just cannot do it justice.
The apartments are very comfortable with everything you could possibly need and Bob and Ian are the perfect hosts,going out of their way to answer any queries and give recommendations,re restaurants and local attractions.

Right from the start Bob and Ian were perfect hosts, never intrusive but always there when we needed. They helped us with trip ideas and bookings so we could enjoy the wonderful le marche region. The apartment, pool, views and local villages were all amazing and we had a great honeymoon at Casal Dei Fichi
Bob and Ian are excellent hosts, they have thought of every detail you need in your apartment. The view is amazing!
The pizza party on Sunday is fantastico!
We enjoyed our stay very much!
Thank you for the fantastico holliday!
We had a fabulous time at this beautiful spot. The accommodation was spacious and we had a balcony with gorgeous views over the pool and surrounding countryside. Bob and Ian were the perfect hosts helping us with directions, booking tables and any other queries we had with places to visit and the local area. Pizza night was brilliant fun, vineyard visit is a must, wine so good and cheap! Beaches were great very child friendly. All the food we ate was delicious and Casal Dei Fichi is just beautiful. Would highly recommend with or without children.
