Picture yourself at Casal dei Fichi. Your apartment is waiting for you where you can enjoy privacy and tranquility. Situated in a peaceful valley with spectaular views in all directions, your spacious apartment has room for 4 people and has it's own dedicated private garden. Take it easy in a hammock among the fig and walnut trees and let your cares drift away and as you think about which local restaurant you might visit this evening to try the delicious dishes you have been dreaming about. Within the landscaped grounds we have a 15m heated pool boarded by a large decked area with sun loungers and shades - It gets the sunshine all day long so you can relax and soak up the inspirational views of the rolling hills, each topped by a medieval village. Perhaps you prefer the shade of the pergola where you can sip a cocktail, read your book or just snooze the afternoon away! We have planted a vegetable and herb garden so you can help yourself each day, with our compliments, to our seasonal produce to make a lovely meal - why go shopping if you don't have too! We also have an orchard and our own chickens so there are always fruit and free range eggs waiting for you each day. The original outdoor brick bread oven is ideal for our weekly complimentary pizza party where you can try your hand at making your own pizza - perfect with a glass or two of local vino! INSIDE - your apartment is large with lots of light and from each window there is a view over the countryside. We have tried to think of what you will need for a relaxing holiday and our guests tell us we have thought of everything. Your kitchen has a granite worktop and is fitted with all the appliances you would expect at home. Your bedroom is light and airy and has a king size bed with lovely linen so you get a wonderful nights sleep and feel refreshed and ready to enjoy the next day of your stay. Your bathroom is modern and stylish with a large powerful shower - we think that is important. Of course there is all the technology and wifi you might want or you may feel like listening to the silence of being away from it all - your choice. OUTSIDE - your private garden outside your door has a table and chairs so you can eat in the fresh air and enjoy the view while you relax. There are lots of spaces to chill-out in the grounds or you might fancy cooking up a fabulous meal on the BBQ and of course please join us for our weekly pizza party. The swimming pool is heated and at 15m X 5m there is lots of room and you can do some proper swimming if that is your thing. Or maybe just float on a lilo and let the breeze take you away! Free Insiders Guide - our guide to the very best elements of Marche is available now - just ask. In it you will find lots of recommendations that you won't find in the guide books. What our guests say 'Bob and Ian are fantastic hosts with lots of local knowledge and with tips and advise on what's happening locally - there is plenty to do if you can drag yourself away from the gorgeous pool area. There is a really lovely friendly atmosphere around the place and the pizza party on Monday night is great fun.' Laura August 2017 'We immediately felt at home the minute we arrived. The property is simply perfect. The individual villas are perfectly appointed and even include espresso machines. The swimming pool has a view over the rolling countryside.' Andrea June 2016 'I never thought it was possible to have such a relaxing holiday with two small children but Casal dei Fichi gave us just that. We were able to help ourselves to organic fruit and veg in their garden and the children collected eggs from the chickens for our breakfasts. Bob and Ian booked us into restaurants in the evenings and we had an amazing boat trip along the coast that they also organised.' Tara June 2017More

About the neighbourhood
Casal dei Fichi is a short walk from Francavilla d’Ete, an ancient village set up on a hill with magnificent views. There are all the amenities here including shops, bars and a great simple restaurant. Within a few minutes drive there are several other towns each with it’s own superb restaurant restaurants and other facilities. Our guests comment that they like the location - quiet and undisturbed. At the same time we are in central Marche so you can easily get around to see the main attractions like the cities of Fermo and Macerata, the coast and the mountains. Nearby to Casal dei Fichi are the fascinating Roman ruins of Urbisaglia and the abbey where you can take lunch and explore the grounds.
Getting around
We are in central Marche and public transport is limited so you are recommended to hire a car. Our nearest airports are: Ancona - 60 minutes Perugia & Pescara - 90 minutes Bologna & Rome - 3 hours
