Where do I start with this! Bob and Ian are fantastic hosts, they could not do anything more for you. Planning our wedding in Italy was completely stress free, they took a massive stress off our shoulders and nothing was too much trouble for them. Casal Dei Fichi was the first and only place we looked at when we were deciding to get married in Italy. We visited in July 2017 and March 2018 and on both visits we were warmly welcomed by Bob & Ian and also the local officials in the Franca Villa commune. Casal Dei Fichi was ours for the week, Friends and Family arrived from the UK and when they arrived they could not believe their eyes, as they turned into this amazing place! Words cannot describe the views, they are breath-taking. All of the apartments are individually unique with their own special feature. We (Bride & Groom) stayed in Leopardi with the balcony, lovely room and amazing views as you can imagine. The famous Pizza party was loved by everyone as well. Whilst we were we went Wine tasting at the local Vineyard. This was superb as well, views, wine and food were lovely again. Le Marche as a region is beautiful and you can see why Bob & Ian picked this region! I would recommend to anyone to stay here not only for the picturesque views, but because of Bob & Ian. They are truly lovely hosts and incredible friends who made our Wedding day/ week incredible.
Located in a wonderful setting with beautiful views across the fields with lots of little villages to explore near by. Apartment very clean and stocked with everything you could need. Exceptional owners who were so helpful with any queries we had and genuinely made you feel at home. Would definitely visit again!
This was our fifth stay in Casal dei Fichi. Wonderfull as usual. Well furnished and comfortable appartment. Great swimming pool in a well maintained garden. Great hosts who make the stay easy and relaxed.Casal dei Fichi is well located to explore the Marche which offers history, culture, good food, friendly locals.
We heard about Casal de Fiche from people we met last year in the nearby village of Mogliano and I must confess we have not been disappointed. The accommodation is really excellent and the location is to die for. Bob & Ian are extraordinary hosts making everybody feel welcome and always being available if needed. They also have this unbelievable library of DVD’s for those damp days which we did experience this year. The Tuesday evening ‘Pizza Night’ was a great success and enabled guests to meet up if they wanted. All in all a great stay and I’m sure we will be back in the future.
We’ve been to casal dei Fichi several times now, much to do with our love of the Marche region but also due to Bob & Ian’s ability to make you feel immensely welcome. They’ve created a wonderful oasis there at the bottom of typically Italian bumpy dirt track. It all adds to the charm. The accommodation is immaculate and finished as it should be for the region. If you are tired of the usual European destinations and restaurants that have tomato ketchup on every table casal dei fichi is the perfect base. The views are breathtaking making you feel like you’re in the middle of a painting and then there’s the local restaurants which never fail to serve fantastic healthy fresh Italian food AND wine of course. The pizza party that Bob and Ian put on for guests is a great way to meet others and a chance to make your own pizza in a fire oven.
Thank you to Bob and Ian as ever, “the boys av dun good”
Bob and Ian have created a beautiful sanctuary where you are instantly welcomed and made to feel at home. The sympathetically restored house is surrounded by well tended and pretty gardens and with a distinct nod to their eco friendly credentials there is plenty of opportunities to pick fresh fruit and vegetables. And the reflection of their desire to make you feel comfortable they arrange a Pizza Night where everyone gets a chance to 'powder their bottoms' and get creative making pizza around the Pizza oven. its a perfect spot in the world to unwind by the Pool and allow the wonderful sights and sounds of the Le Marche countryside wash over you.
We had a wonderful 7 days here. The setting is characteristic Marche; rolling green hills with cultivation on seemingly impossible gradients, striking hilltop towns, the Sibilli mountains the backdrop. The villa is beautifully restored, has fabulous views, and our ground floor apartment was spacious, comfortable, and very well equipped. Ian and Bob cannot be faulted - they were attentive generous and helpful hosts. We certainly will go back.
