“Perfect accommodation in a stunning location.”
Reviewed November 7, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We have now visited Casal dei Fichi several times and it just gets better and better. The 6 apartments are beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable, with excellent self catering facilities. The nearby village has a very good general store, a butcher and a bank and bar, so all your needs are on hand. There are several fun restaurants in the surrounding villages and with the Adriatic coast to the east and the mountains to the west lots of day trips are possible. The hosts, Bob and Ian, are always on hand to offer advice, and nothing is too much trouble. We plan to return early next summer.

“Casal Dei Fichi”
Reviewed November 6, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

An amazing place perched between a few small towns in Le Marche. Ian and Bob were superb hosts who went to great lengths to make our family of four feel very comfortable. The accom was terrific and includes an outdoor pool with rural hills and historic hillside towns as backdrop. Fresh produce in gardens, hosted pizza night, a number of festivals and events through summer all made for a great week at Casal. Was a great holiday away that the family are still taki g about. I look forward to going back again one day.

“A great experience”
Reviewed November 2, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Le Marche is a beautiful area and thanks to a recommendation from friends we booked in at Casal dei Fiche for the Gourmet Weekend. Amazing! Bob and Ian look after you so well. We experienced some delicious meals in a variety of interesting restaurants from homely local family run ones to a unique room in a castle to an ultra modern seafood restaurant overlooking the Adriatic . We truffle hunted, picked olives , had a cookery lesson, enjoyed looking around a local olive oil pressing factory and enjoyed wine tasting in a most sophisticated winery. Plus more.
Casal dei Fichi is a beautiful building that Bob and Ian have restored into a most comfortable and elegant place to stay. Their land is full of interest, flowers, trees, vegetables, chickens, and swimming pool! The views are to die for. The surrounding area looks different at every turn in the road and their are so many historic towns and villages to explore within easy reach. Then there is the stunning coast line half an hour away. What more could you ask for?
Bob , Ian and the dogs and cats gave us a memorable stay. We will be back, no doubt at all!

“Like staying with family”
Reviewed October 15, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

I have stayed at Casal dei Fichi so many times it feels like coming home. Staying in apartment Orsini is perfect for my friend and I with it's enormous twin beds. I usually visit in the spring or autumn when the weather is warm and sunny, perfect for a walk on the beach with a delicious fish lunch. There are plenty of towns to explore each with fantastic views. Or just stay at the Casal and enjoy the views there. They are beautiful from the pool which, even at the start and end of the season, is open and heated.

I'm already looking forward to my next visit.

“You are so sexy”
Reviewed October 14, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

God, I love you. My forth visit and I’m in heaven. Why can’t I stay forever? Seriously I so enjoyed my return visit everything was perfect. I am really impressed with your environmental standards and it was a pleasure to support your Treedom scheme by dining out in some great local restaurants. Can’t wait to return.

“Stop searching! You've found your dream holiday.”
Reviewed October 5, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We stayed at Casal dei Fichi in mid-September 2017 having been invited along by family who had previously visited and loved their experience staying at Bob and Ian's villa in this beautiful part of Le Marche.

Upon arrival at our room (Rossini), we were happy to discover that it comfortably accommodated our party of four with a well-situated kitchen, a modern bathroom, and a living space perfect for late evenings spent chatting and laughing over a bottle of one of the fine local wines. The doors open right onto the patio, making the outdoor space feel like an extension of the dining room. It was cozy, comfortable, and homey. Bob and Ian are passionate about sustainability and consciousness of the environment, and their entire establishment reflects this ethic admirably. Composting and recycling are readily available, and hot water is produced by solar panels. They even have charging ports for electric cars!

The villa is located in a a quiet part of a truly spectacular region of Italy. The location is close enough to local amenities and things to do, while removed enough to allow you to enjoy true peace and quiet. It's just a short drive from lovely towns, beaches, and wineries; we'd certainly recommend Murola winery and vineyard, Da Silvio beach, and Le Logge restaurant. If you're prepared for a slightly longer trip, the walled city of Urbino is definitely worth spending a day exploring. Whatever kind of activity you're after, Bob and Ian have a very thorough and helpful informational booklet in each room full of all these and more.

Throughout our week long stay we loved getting to know the hosts and their menagerie of furry friends (dogs and cats), and of course the other guests at Casal dei Fichi. We felt truly at home spending time by the pool and around the beautiful gardens which surround the property.

Bob and Ian's (in)famous pizza night provided a great way to get to know our hosts and fellow guests. We quickly fell into easy conversation with the other holiday-makers, delighted in making our own pizzas to cook (with supervision) in the wood-fired oven, and enjoyed local wines supplied by those in attendance.

All in all, we completely agree with the other reviews: this is truly a special place to visit and we can't wait to return to those sunny hillsides soon!
