Great location, with stunning views and easy driving to beach and airport. Ian and Bob are really nice and very helpful. Thank you!
Our second year staying at Casal dei Fichi was even better than the first, if that is possible.
My husband, myself and our 3 children enjoyed the perfect first week relaxing by the pool and enjoying the gorgeous weather. The second week we had family join us, so we went out more and experience some of the restaurants recommended by Bob and Ian. We also spent the day cruising along the Le Marche coastline on our own private boat, being fed delicious sea food and enjoying a swim from the back of the boat. Brilliant day out!
We stayed in the same apartment as last year with a balcony with the most stunning views that we could never get tired of. It is hard to describe the peace and tranquility there unless you experience it yourself. The apartment was as comfortable and well equipped as we remembered. Bob and Ian are so very kind and helpful organising outings for us, booking restaurants and even this time, sorting out a dentist for one of our family members. We can't thank them enough for making our stay so enjoyable.
The children loved being in the pool, making gorgeous pizza's on Monday pizza nights, the dogs and the cats and all our trips out and about. When they enjoy themselves so much, it means the grown ups can relax and enjoy themselves too, which we most definitely did!!
We loved our second visit to Casal dei Fichi so much that we have already booked to return next year. The children are so excited already and we have only been home 3 weeks! We all can't wait to return in 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casal Dei Fichi staying in the Ricci apartment. The setting is beautiful with stunning views at every turn. The pool is a lovely place to relax and read, as well as there being many other places to unwind including hammocks under the fig trees. Bob and Ian were wonderful hosts and helped us with advice on the area as well as arranging bookings for restaurants and wine tastings. They were very helpful from the moment we enquired about a booking right through to the end of our stay. Everyone throughly enjoyed the pizza evening which made for a sociable, fun night sampling wine and fresh pizzas. Each apartment has its own garden seating area allowing for privacy without taking away from the setting. We enjoyed a relaxing break, good food, wine and scenery.
Bob and Ian made us feel at home. Together with all the wonderful and cuddly furry staff... Our kids absolutely loved the dogs, cats, chickens, the fab pool and the possibility to run around free. Thanks so much for hosting the wonderful Pizza Party! We look forward to our next visit in one of your beautiful and very clean an well equipped apartments.
Casal dei Fichi is a stunning place to stay. Bob and Ian are perfect hosts and are always there to make sure you have everything you need. Nothing is too much for them. They recommended and also booked fabulous restaurants for us all. The apartments are comfortable, clean and are well equipped. We loved being able to pick fresh figs, almonds and herbs from the extensive garden. On arrival we were given wine, water,butter and fresh eggs from their chickens. There are wonderful local food stores nearby. The pool is fabulous, a great way to relax, stunning views too!
We all loved our stay at Casal dei Fichi and would definitely return. We would definitely recommend it.
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.
