We visited CdF last year and enjoyed it so much that we returned this year for another wonderful and relaxing week at Bob and Ian's property. And we have never returned to where we were before during holiday!
I spent some time thinking what made us to return and can say it is the whole package.
Beautiful, spacious appartments, great pool, stunning views, large garden so there is space enough for all visitors, quiet area, close enough to the mountains and the see, lovely dog company, ineractive and joyful pizza parties and as cherry on this cake the always available support and advice of Bob and Ian.
Perfect spot for a relaxing Italy vacation. Away from the tourist areas, gorgeous scenery, amazing food nearby, friendly people and affordable! Mountains, hill towns, local farmers markets, beaches.....Casal dei Fichi is very comfortable and has amazing views. Bob & Ian are super welcoming and helpful, will even make your dinner reservations for you. Pizza night is fun!
We returned to Casal de Fichi for a week this summer - everything was just as lovely as our previous visits. Bob and Ian keep the whole place immaculate and are constantly improving and working to keep their visitors happy. It was very very hot this year - so the fans supplied came in very handy. You can really be either very active or very lazy here - we did a bit of both. The guys sorted our Opera tickets for us and we had a lovely meal beforehand - the Opera in Mascerata is great and worth a visit during the summer months. We had a few days at the beach and a few days doing nothing round the glorious pool (which is always a lovely temperature). The Kitchens have everything you need to cook up some lovely Italian meals and the Pizza Party is always great fun - its only taken me three years to produce a pizza that was actually edible !!! You do need a car to stay here - there is wine tasting and many great restaurants to try. Le Marche is a great place to visit and Casal de fichi the best place to stay if your visiting.
My husband and I are just back from a 10 night stay at Casal Dei Fichi which was so good we tried to extend our stay but unfortunately for us Bob and Ian were fully booked.
This is no surprise as this little jewel set in one of Le Marche's many beautiful valleys is a fantastic place to spend a holiday. The apartments are spacious with very well equipped kitchens, comfy beds, each one has its own outdoor area with lovely views of the garden, large swimming pool and surrounding countryside. We keep coming back there is no where else like it!!!!!!
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.
