We were wonderfully looked after by the two hospitable owners. Nothing was too much trouble and given the weather, the location and the high degree of comfort the property afforded we had a truly memorable holiday.

The setting is picture perfect - rolling hills, winding roads, sunflower fields, olive trees and villages twinkling on the hill tops in the night. Ian and bob have created a very special place. Spacious apartments with a personal touch and high end furniture and bathrooms each with their own private outdoor spot. Beautiful swimming pool with plenty of shady places for the fair skinned Irish like myself. Incredible places to visit in the area including the charming local village with it's cafe called the cafe of dreams! And did I mention the food you can get around here - as it should be - simple delicious and served with love. Ian and bob also do a great pizza night and are full of good advice on places to go - not to mention they're being such gracious hosts. Recommend without hesitation.
It had been about 2 years since our last stay at this wonderful place and it was just as we had experienced in the past. The host's, Ian & Bob, are as charming, relaxed and inviting as ever. The pizza night has certainly developed into a relaxed evening of meeting other guests and making great pizza. The apartments are still well prepared, comfortable and clean. The gardens have matured and the good sized pool and setting is just delightful. The views from the property are stunning and the atmosphere very relaxing. Of course no review would be complete without a mention of the lovely and friendly Balzo and Hattie. A great addition are "the girls" (chickens) that supply the wonderful fresh eggs for breakfast. Le Marche is our top destination in Italy and we will be back many more times!
Having spent a busy week in Rome, we were really looking forward to spending our second week at Casal dei Fichi, and unwinding and relaxing and that is exactly what we did!
We arrived in Casal de Fichi and were absolutely blown away at the spectacular views....so unspoilt and completely breathtaking. We were greeted by Bob who was so welcoming and thorough in explaining in depth what Casal de Fichi had to offer us during our stay.
We had the most amazing week, we have two young girls aged 7 and 8 they had an absolute ball, from collecting the chickens eggs, to pizza night, playing with the cats and dogs and swimming from dawn til dusk...because we were staying in Leo Pardi apartment we could even keep an eye on them while they played and genuinely had fun - they found it a really adventurous holiday as they could be left to their own devices!
Bob and Ian could not do enough for us - they were fantastic hosts, they pointed us to the right direction for restaurants and beaches etc.
My girls can't stop talking about their amazing holiday and we are already discussing going back next year!
Thanks guys for making our stay such a special and relaxing one - you two really are amazing hosts and we look forward to seeing you both again

The perfect Italian getaway in unspolit Marche. This was the most relaxing 7 days we have ever had on holiday. Great apartments, landscaped gardens and a fantastic pool all set against a stunning location with views for miles around of countryside, vineyards and walled hilltop villages. We could help ourselves daily to produce from the garden - everything from fresh basil, to grapes, to figs, to eggs from the chickens. Bob and Ian have created not only the perfect retreat but also somewhere to use as a great base to explore - from the beaches to the mountains of Marche.
