“Lazy days of summer”
Reviewed 22 May 2013 for a stay in June 2012

We stayed at Casa De Fichi June, 2012. I’m delighted to say we are staying there again in June 2013!! Can’t wait, Casa De Fichi is an absolute gem!.
Our accommodation, Apartment Ricci, was far larger than expected, and very well equipped. We loved the freshly laid eggs for breakfast, courtesy of Bob and Ian’s Hens! I know many other reviewer’s have said what a relaxing place Casel De Fichi is, that was our experience too, wonderfully relaxing, lazy days reading in shade of a tree, or near by the pool whilst sipping a glass of the local Rose!
Bob and Ian are great hosts, always helpful, friendly, and with good knowledge of the area they do everything possible to ensure you enjoy your stay.
Bob and Ian's pizza evening were such good fun. An opportunity to meet the other guests, we soon discovered we were the new kids on the block, all the other guests were second or third timers!!! If all this fails to inspire, then one look at Balzo & Hattie with their wonderful canine friendly personalities will surely charm you.
There are so many wonderful restaurants in the area, we tended to eat out at lunch times as part of a day out visiting towns or driving just to admire the stunning scenery. Home late afternoon for further relaxation with some home cooked food and local wine.
There are so many wonderful places to visit, many within a short distance of Casel Di Fichi. Mogliano, a small hilltop town just minutes away, with an excellent gelateria and several bars and restaurants. Also Ascoli Piceno, l’Abbadia di Fiastra and Tolentino with its two main and very impressive churches (San Nicolà and San Catervo). Urbino a unisco world heritage site is within driving distance albeit with an early start .

“Utterly Brilliant”
Reviewed 8 January 2013 for a stay in June 2012

This was our second visit to Casal dei Fichi - last year we stayed at the beginning of September and this year June. Both times it was exquisite - June has the addition of fireflies and it is cooler and September has the addition of ripe figs! The apartments are so lovely and of a really high standard. The dogs Balsa ( or Balso) and Hetty have wonderful characters provide constant entertainment and are hilarious - as are Bob and Ian - the owners, welcoming, helpful and funny. The whole area is just so lovely so many wonderful places to visit and eat. Bob and Ian's pizza party is a legend! Both visits have been utterly brilliant ...... my only caution are the mosquitoes be prepared for them !!!!

“Just what we were looking for”
Reviewed 5 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

What we wanted was a peaceful beautiful private accommodation, with access to the outdoor living space and a variety of day trips not too far away, as I brought my 6 month old baby with me, to meet up with my parents for a visit. We rented two of the Casal dei Fichi apartments. We nearly had too much space! We could not have dreamed for a more comfortable place to spend a week with extended family. My mom and I participated in two days of cooking lessons at a big restaurant in a nearby town. Since the chef taught in Italian, Casal dei Fichi host Bob accompanied us and did a fantastic job translating! We really enjoyed ourselves. Both Bob and Ian are so gracious and helpful, while still allowing you your privacy and the feeling that you are staying in an independent space. In my experience your accommodation can really make a difference to the quality of your vacation. This was perfect. I would return with my husband and I would highly recommend staying at Casal dei Fichi to couples and families alike.

One of my favourite things was making a cappuccino first thing in the morning and sitting out in our little garden in the sunshine. The setting is absolutely breathtaking.

“Beautiful location - wonderful hosts”
Reviewed 17 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Casal dei Fichi is located in a beautiful area and Ian and Bob were wonderful hosts who went out of their way to be helpful. The accomodations were teriffic and included everything we needed. Ian and Bob arranged some wonderful outings that we really enjoyed and we had a lot of fun exploring the many small towns in the area. Food, service and location were even better than we had hoped for and I highly recomment staying at Casal dei Fichi.

“Another fabulous stay,”
Reviewed 9 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

The perfect place and the perfect hosts. Bob and Ian always have great recommendations for places to eat and things to do. And can't forget Balzo & Hattie to come running to say hi. A quick 2 day stay to celebrate our anniversary
and again another great stay in a very comfortable and relaxing apartment, fully equipped even with some local wine and fresh eggs from the chickens. Beautiful grounds to sit and relax with some wine overlooking the pool and rolling hills. We will definitely be back again.
