“A great return and magnificent experience!”
Reviewed 19 November 2018 for a stay in October 2018

Bob and Ian are two wonderful folks who have gone far beyond to ensure their clients become friends. They know the local culture and happily participate in experiencing many local delights: truffle hunting, olive oil production, wine (and more wine), great local eateries, a pizza party, expeditions to local attractions, a sense of history and a genuine affection for both fellow expats and locals.

They knew that I plan to live in this unique region of Marche, and have helped me in several key aspects..Both know that there is so much more to owning vacation apartments - that to establish meaningful relationships is essential; and this they both do! I truly consider both as new friends, that I will continue to meet with and, hopefully, can assist them in some way in the future.

I can not recommend a better place to stay than Casal dei Fichi nor better hosts than Bob and Ian.

“A fabulous "pizza" of paradise!”

Casal dei Fichi is truly a fabulous "piece" of paradise! Bob and Ian have created a haven in Le Marche. The minute you arrive at Casal dei Fichi, you can't take your eyes off the beautiful views and surroundings. Bob and Ian are welcoming hosts and the 6 apartments are gorgeous and well appointed, No detail has been neglected! And their enthusiasm for all things environmental - recycling, composting and the Treedom Foundation - deserves kudos. After visiting Tuscany, Le Marche is a secret gem and a wonderful alternative to Tuscany, without the tourists! Like Tuscany, Le Marche is scattered with undulating hills topped with picturesque towns and villages, vineyards and olive groves, plus good food and wine, but boasts a coastline that Tuscany lacks! What's not to love here? Follow Bob and Ian's suggestions - their knowledge of the area's restaurants, vineyards, places to visit and activities is extensive and they never steered us wrong. Everything about our stay at Casal dei Fichi with our group of friends was fantastic - hospitality, setting, the truffle hunt followed by lunch (a highlight), the pizza party, and a wonderful sense of place and camaraderie! Can't wait to return. Grazie mille Bob and Ian!

“Can't wait to return”
Reviewed 9 November 2018 for a stay in October 2018

Everything about our stay at Casal dei Fichi was wonderful. First of all, Le Marche is a beautiful part of Italy we hadn't visited before. We would have seen more of it had we not been so content to hang around Casal dei Fichi, where we had a beautiful, comfortable, large apartment that opened onto a patio from which we could gaze at the neighboring hilltop towns. We were there with a group of friends we had met in previous travels so sitting outside, chatting, drinking wine, eating pizza, etc. was fantastic. Bob & Ian also planned some great outings. Truffle hunting was a definite highlight, and eating a lot of truffles at lunch afterwards was amazing. Also loved visiting the olive oil factory and several great restaurants. Bob & Ian are the best hosts ever and we can't wait to go back!

“Beautiful setting, comfortable accommodations, awesome hosts!”
Reviewed 31 October 2018 for a stay in October 2018

This lovely home away from home has it all! Our fun and witty hosts, Bob and Ian, welcome you with local wine in the fridge and olive oil from their own trees. They can provide suggestions for what to see in the area or have you just relax in the expansive garden with fabulous views. The friiendly staff of dogs and cats are warm but unobtrusive - they have work to do! Great place for a multi-family (or friends, as we were) gathering as there is plenty of room for a large group to assemble, or you can retreat to your own apartment or private garden spot. Don’t miss the pizza party! Can’t wait to return!

“A pity we didn't book for a longer period!!”
Reviewed 18 October 2018 for a stay in September 2018

The stay was fantastic! Spacial apartment, everything you need to spend the holidays in comfort was there! Ian and Bob are just lovely (just like the cats and dogs) and maintain the house and garden very good. The fresh vegetables, grapes and eggs were a daily extra. Not to forget the swimming pool...a bit chilly at this time of the year but it gives you a great view while swimming. Do not miss the pizza party... it is great! We will go back one day… and surely longer than 5 days!

“What you see is what you get.”
Reviewed 23 September 2018 for a stay in September 2018

Casal dei Fichi was the perfect place to relax and to discover the beautiful region of Le Marche. We loved the view from our terrace, the property is well located, really a peaceful spot. But most of all we liked the warm welcome off the hosts.
