“Very relaxing holiday in a wonderful setting”
Reviewed 5 December 2010 for a stay in August 2010

Lovely apartment - well appointed and very comfortable.
Set in beautiful countryside with fantastic views over the surrounding hills.
Bob and Ian were excellent hosts - helpful, friendly and able to suggest places to visit and to eat out. The Pizza evenings were great fun and a relaxing way of meeting fellow guests in the other apartments.
We definitely plan to return.
Perfect!

The gourmet olive weekend lived up to all expectations; even the weather was excellent. The accommodation is superb and the care and enthusiasm of Bob and Ian could not be surpassed.

“A week to remember.”
Reviewed 20 November 2010 for a stay in November 2010

A wonderful week themed around the olive. Very comfortable accommodation in a superb setting in a totally unspoilt part of Italy. Our hosts, Bob and Ian looked after us in an exemplary manner showing us many aspects of gourmet living in Marche.

“Great memories until the next visit”
Reviewed 16 November 2010 for a stay in October 2010

Balzo and Hattie were the perfect hosts as usual and kept Bob and Ian busy making sure that our holiday was another one to remember. 6th visit and have already booked the next. A vista that you cannot describe. Lovely apartments. Local villages, restaurants, and delicacies to remember. Mountains and sea. It has everything but don't tell anyone as. I want to make sure there is a place there whenever I want to go. Convenient to Ancona. Bob and Ian are the perfect hosts catering to all needs.

“Our third visit but hopefully not our last!”
Reviewed 15 November 2010 for a stay in November 2010

Just returned from a Gourmet Olive Weekend at Casal dei Fichi. As ever Bob & Ian were great hosts and had put together a superb itinerary including many memorable meals in local restaurants sampling the gastronomic delights of Le Marche as well as a trip to a local vineyard with delicious wine tasting, a vist to a local market and a morning at a quirky local cookery school where we all managed to turn out a delicious lunch with much help from Guida our tutor. We also tried our hand at olive picking and visited the local olive press to see the new harvest being crushed into glistening olive oil, bottles of which we have safely transported home to remind of us of lovely Le Marche during the winter months. A truly fabulous weekend, thanks to Bob & Ian.
This was our third visit to Casal dei Fichi over 18 months and we don't plan for it to be our last. We think that speaks for itself, we love the place, the views are to die for and the apartments are excellent, equipped with everything you'll need for your stay. Plus the weather was great too, a sunny 20c in November. Not sure how Bob & Ian fixed that!

“Our 6th visit to the best holiday destination in Le Marchw”
Reviewed 15 November 2010 for a stay in October 2010

Our 6th visit to Casal dei Fichi did not disappoint. We stayed in our favourite apartment that has breathtaking views of the mountains and hilltop towns. Our hosts Balzo and Hattie - our canine friends - were terrific, Bob and Ian were OK as well. Fichi is the most wonderful destination to relax and experience the beauty of the Le Marche. Secluded but within easy reach of lovely medieval towns with a wealth of culture and fabulous restaurants. We have just booked to return for our 7th visit in June. Marvellous.

“Absolutely Fantastic”
Reviewed 31 October 2010 for a stay in September 2010

I was fortunate enough to take my wife & child to stay at Casal Dei Fichi. The property is a former farmhouse renovated with painstaking attention to detail by Bob & Ian an English couple. The project took them years & has been finished on a 'Grand Designs' scale. We stayed in a lovely apartment at the front of the property with views over the outdoor swimming pool. The amenities would suit couples, families, single travellers etc.

We were so impressed with the level of accomodation, location, service from Ian & Bob that we will definitely be returning in 2011.
