“Fantastic!!!!”
Reviewed 26 May 2011 for a stay in May 2011

Casal dei Fichi was amazing!! We had a wonderful time,Bob and Ian are simply the best hosts you could ever ask for. We have a very active 5 year old boy with whom Bob and Ian were fantastic with him they let him get the eggs from the chickens everyday and of course was highly entertained by the wonderful Balzo & Hatti. It is also a lovely region of Italy we enjoyed visiting the markets in local villages and the beach was amazing!! We would deffinately go back again!!

“Just perfect in every way!”
Reviewed 17 May 2011 for a stay in May 2011

We stayed at the farmhouse for a week for our wedding anniversary with both sets of parents - so there were a lot of demands to be met, and Casal dei Fichi surpassed them all! Run by the charming Bob & Ian (with the help of their wonderful dogs Hattie & Balzo, and 4 cats) the house is in the most perfect location I've ever visited. Overlooking a valley with the occasional hilltop town or villa in the distance it really takes your breath away!

Between us we had three very spacious apartments (Leopardi, Orsini & Rossini), all of which were finished to a really high standard. The kitchens are fully stocked, allowing you to test your Italian cookery skills to full effect, and all come with their own outside space, overlooking the beautifully kept ground.

It's the perfect place to just relax and do nothing, taking in the scenery and chill by the pool. But there's a lot on offer for the more energetic - beautiful local walks or visits to the local hilltop towns like Mogliano and Lora Piceno. The drive out to the mountains, and Lake Fiastra is really worth it.

As many have mentioned the pizza evening (or afternoon as it was for us, so early in the season) is a great opportunity to get to know Bob & Ian, and the other guests (and local neighbours in our case). You get to make your own and have hands-on experience of the pizza oven, which is brilliant fun!

This is a taste of the real, local Italy. We're already clambering to get back!

“Stunning setting, lovely apartments and charming friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed 2 May 2011 for a stay in April 2011

Le Marche is a stunning, rural hidden corner of Italy. Casa dei Fichi has very comfortable apartments with everything you could need or want and more in a setting which takes your breath away. The hosts, Bob and Ian, and the various animal companions around the Casa, make it an extra special place. I could have stayed for weeks!

“An oasis of calm and relaxation”
Reviewed 20 March 2011 for a stay in March 2011

Just returned from a short break in the area which we had visited many times before but it was our first stay at Casal dei Fichi which certainly did not disappoint in any way. Our apartment was fabulous,finished to a very high standard. With the evenings still cold at this time of year the cosy log fire was particularly welcoming and inviting. Bob and Ian were wonderful hosts and we have no doubt that we will be visiting Casal dei Fichi again. We would have no hesitation recommending this beautiful oasis.

“Casal Dei Fantastico”
Reviewed 4 March 2011 for a stay in August 2010

Been a bit late in writing this review but here goes. My wife and I had chose this as our honeymoon destination back in July 2008 and we were both breathtaken when we saw the place in its full glory. We had the most amazing week and loved it so much we returned in August 2010. Bob and Ian and the best hosts you could ever wish for. They are both knowlegeable of the surrounding area, knowing the best places to eat and to visit. In addition if you want to eat in your apartment, which is of the highest standard, then you can choose from the local vegetables and herbs to add to your pasta or meat dishes. You truly unwind at this place and we have made it part of our itinery for future holidays. If you want a place that has everything this is it!!!

“always a gem”
Reviewed 15 January 2011 for a stay in October 2010

Our fifth trip to the Casal and still the view on arrival amazes, as does the standard of the apartments. Unspoilt countryside all around. Clean, spacious apartments with real character.
Lovely to be there in the autumn and enjoy some walks, and the buzz of olive harvesting all around. Log fires in the evenings were a real treat.
Ian, Bob and the dogs were welcoming hosts as always.
