“The best for a holiday stay in de Marche, Italy”
Reviewed 15 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

August - September 2013 we spent a wonderful three weeks at two marvelous hosts in the Marche Italy. What a lovely place in beautiful surroundings. Bob and Ian have made ​​this house a wonderful holiday stay. Good tips for your stay and a weekly update of all things to do in the area. And do you want to practice making paper-thin pizzas from a wood oven: even then you have them on your site by the weekly pizzaparty. We will certainly return. Good rested and use of the nice pool! Highly recommended!

“Sun, relaxation and beautiful scenery”
Reviewed 10 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We spent a week at Casal dei Fichi this August for our honeymoon and had a fantastic time. We stayed in Ricci, which was very private with the spiral staircase leading to the bedroom and modern en suite bathroom. Downstairs, the lounge and kitchen areas were spacious and bigger than expected! Our garden area was perfect - we had barbecues day and night much to the amusement of the lovely owners Bob and Ian!
The apartment was extremely well equipped with everything we needed, as was the pool area. We spent many days relaxing in the sun by the pool with incredible views!
You do need a car to go anywhere - we had a hire car and did go visiting, but the temptation to just stay in the lovely grounds of the house definitely won.
The owners Bob and Ian are more than happy to help and give advice - and the pizza parties are an excellent way to meet other guests.
We used the local butchers in the village for our meat and the local convenience store had fresh fruit, veg, milk etc. to stock up in between bigger shops!
Highly recommended for those looking for relaxation in a modern, immaculately clean and well equipped apartment!

“Fabulous! Fabulous! Fabulous!”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We've just returned from a week's stay at Casel Dei Fichi. Our apartment was beautiful and the scenery spectacular! The children loved the pool and pizza-making night where great fun was had by all! I can't thank Bob and Ian enough with helping us to get to know Le Marche region and where best to visit as we'd never been to this region of Italy before. This is definitely a place we'll come back to again.

“Idyllic week away”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We had a lovely week away, staying in the Orsini apartment. Bob & Ian were wonderful hosts and we loved the pizza night put on by them - Ian's banana and chocolate pizza went down a treat! We would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a peaceful week away, with stunning views of the Italian countryside - although we would advise a car! The apartment was the perfect size for our needs, we were particularly impressed with our emperor bed! Thank you both for a lovely week.

“Idyllic location, superb accommodation, and highly attentive and welcoming hosts”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Casal Dei Fichi is simply a magical place, run by two very special people; Bob and Ian. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and they have excellent local knowledge and advice. The accommodation is typically Italian, yet spacious and of the highest standard, and with views to die for. They have done a superb job in renovating and converting this once derelict farm house and the whole estate is well designed and managed. The owners have high standards but their management of the property and grounds is understated and never imposing. The pool area is lovely with plenty of quality loungers and parasols. Bob's tomatoes in his veg garden are the sweetest I've ever tasted, with the help of the wonderful Italian summer sun.
Their pizza night is a stroke of genius, as it's on Monday so gives everyone a chance to meet up at the start of the week and get to know each other, helped along by copious amounts of Italian wine from the local vineyards. Be prepared to be judged on your pizza making skills by the competition but it's all great fun even if your pizza goes wrong like mine did. You can have another go and everyone shares each others pizza. Ian's pear and gorgonzola pizza should be protected by copyright - it's so good! The guests' children came a close second though, with their sweet Nutella pizza! Locally, there are many fab restaurants charging ridiculously low prices for great Italian food, and guided by Bob and Ian's recommendations (I think they've eaten in all of them!) you can't go wrong. Pizza and past dishes for €5-6 and "Secondi" (e.g. grilled lamb or veal T-bone steaks for around €10-12. Wine is around €3 for a half litre jug. My wife and I liked to order all 4 courses but in the interests of our waistline, we shared an antipasta, primi piatti and dolci, and went our separate ways with the secondi. Even with wine and a large bottle of mineral water (€1), the bills were under €50.
Combine the quality accommodation, wonderful setting, welcoming and helpful hosts and local Italian culture and food, and you cannot do better than Casal Dei Fichi. We'll definitely be returning - I only wish it was next week!
