“Bliss in sunshine and rolling hills”
Reviewed 20 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Sadly our stay seems like a distance dream now but just a month ago my husband and I had a blissful week staying in one of the apartments at Casal dei Fichi. We were very impressed by all aspects of the set up but particularly the owners appraoch in providing a friendly but highly professional service. They were just so helpful and solicitous and made sure everyone's stay was a happy one. The actual flat was spacious and homely but best of all had the most wonderful views from the balcony/terrace across the swimming pool into the distant hills and towns perched on the summmits. The sunsets (and the one! sun set we saw) were wonderful and the whole area very beautiful without being at all touristy. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here - to relax, unwind and experience some perfect summer bliss.

“Fairytale holiday”
Reviewed 20 August 2012 for a stay in June 2012

My son booked all apartments for his wedding to Emily. We spent a week there with many other family memebers. The apartments are very comfortable and well appointed supplied with everything needed for a perfect holiday. The grounds are beautiful and well kept and the views breathtaking. The pool is large enough to accomodate all, surrounded with plenty of shady spots to lounge on the comfortable sunbeds.
Our hosts Bob and Ian could not have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble.
The wedding was spectacular. with Bob and Ian in control nothing could go wrong.

“Relaxing holiday in beautiful location”
Reviewed 19 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Just returned from a fantastic holiday in Casal dei Fichi. The property has been renovated to a very high standard. It is set in beautiful countryside,close to picturesque towns. Views from the swimming pool or while relaxing on the apartment's balcony were superb. Ian and Bob were great hosts, providing recommendations for day trips and booking tables in excellent local restaurants. The dogs, Hattie and Balzo were also great company.
Went on an Italian cookery course which was fun and we cooked great tasting food.
A very welcoming and relaxing holiday.

“A week and a wedding that is still being talked about...”
Reviewed 9 August 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We are writing two reviews; one for the accommodation and one for the organisation of our wedding at Casal dei Fichi.This is our third visit to Casal dei Fichi and our first ever review on Trip Advisor. We returned from travelling around the world in 2011 and after getting engaged in Peru, we decided to get married at Casal dei Fichi (a special place for us and the place we started our travelling ideas) and also put our family up for the week. We took all six appartments for our immediate family who travelled from different parts of the world including Australia. Casal dei Fichi is the most relaxing, tranquil, unspoilt rural Italian retreats you could hope to find. The appartments have every provision you could hope for,from espresso machines to music systems, fabulous home grown olive oil, free range eggs from Bb and Ian's hens and a brilliant veg garden. We were lucky to be there in the artichoke season and they were amazing! The gardens are spectacular and the pool ideal to refresh, relax and play in the heat of the day. The view from the pool and the appartments is the most stunning view we've ever had. Bob and Ian are are such generous, considerate hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. Considering they were also in the middle of organising our wedding, they were unflappable, giving all our guests and friends their time and good nature. They were so positive and supportive of our numerous requests. Their appartments became our home and they allowed us to have the run of the place,the gardens and all the facilities. Regarding our wedding ..... During the run up to the wedding of approx one year, Bob and Ian's support and advice were invaluable. The communication was brilliant, emails, phone calls, skype video conferences. Their positive, relaxed approach made our planning so easy and stress free. Bob and Ian guided us through all the paperwork and legal system needed to get married in Italy. They listened to all our ideas and allowed us a pre-visit in April, where they organised face to face meetings with the caterers, musicians, cake makers, flower shops etc. This personal approach really added to the experience and we felt very organised and very unstressed! Their translation powers allowed us to communicate to these very important people, which enabled us to be specific, and take their expert advice where needed. Bob and Ian imparted their fabulous knowledge of the local foods and wines and gave us so much important constructive input so that we could plan a week of special events for our families and friends (45+ people). Our wedding day was perfect, exceeding all our expectations and one that we will cherish forever. The week, wedding and even more so, Bob and Ian have gone down in legend with our families and friends. They had so much time for our families and friends and are two of the lovliest people we have met. It has left us with such special memories and the tribute to it is that we would do it all again tomorrow!Thank you Bob and Ian xxx

My husband and I vacationed at Casal dei Fichi with our two young children. We had such a fabulous time. Bob and Ian were so wonderful and helpful. We have stayed in villas all over Italy, and this was by far the most amazing place to stay. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the property and the apartment were not only true to the comments on the Internet, but were even better than described. My kids especially loved the pizza night and became very attached to their dog Balzo. I would wholeheartedly recommend Casal dei Fichi.
