“Gourmet Break”
Reviewed 17 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

After reading about Casal Dei Fichi's gourmet break years ago we finally took the plunge and signed up.

In the 72 hours between being picked up and dropped off at the airport we had 6 amazing dining experiences (not including the breakfast. The venues for dining ranged from rustic traditional places atop a hill, to a stunning spot at the foot of the mountains, to fine dining within an ancient walled town, to a cosy spot in a medieval plaza to a seafood restaurant by the Adriatic coast, and even Casal dei Fichi itself. In this time we had antipasti, pasta, vegetables, fish, shellfish, meats, desserts in more guises than I can remember and all were delicious.

Somehow there was also time for visits to some very cool (literally) underground Roman cisterns, the ornate local theatre, a cathedral, a vineyard (just in case we hadn't had the opportunity of a glass of wine for the previous 30 minutes) the local olive press, a cookery course and even a beach.

Casal dei Fichi is a great spot with fabulous views onto the rolling hills of the local countryside. Our hosts Bob and Ian treated us like old friends and ferried us around the winding roads of Le Marche from one fantastic experience to the next. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they are obviously passionate and knowledgeable about the place they call home.

All in all a fantastic experience that will unfortunately involve you going home at least 2kg heavier. You will also have experience the finest hospitality, accommodation, food, wine and scenery this lesser known area of Italy has to offer.

“Wonderful Gourmet Experience”
Reviewed 13 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We have just returned from Bob and Ian's fantastic Gourmet Weekend. This was a once in a lifetime experience as they only organize one or two such weekends per year. We were met at the airport by Ian , transported without fuss to Casal dei Fichi where we met Bob and were shown to our apartment, one of the best we have rented on our many holidays all over the globe.
The orgy of eating and drinking then began. Our hosts arranged dinner each night in different wonderful restaurants in the La Manche area where we sampled the best cuisine and wines the region has to offer. They also organised trips out to local places of interest including a 'learn to cook' lunch at a beautiful farm/restaurant in the mountains.
All in all a magnificent trip made even better by the hospitality of Bob and Ian. Would love to do it again.

“Golden Autumn days at Casal dei Fichi”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed at Casal dei Fichi for a sunny week in October. Our hopes and expectations were high as it had been highly recommended by previous guests. We were not disappointed. Bob and Ian are wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they patiently answered all our questions: where to eat, what to see, where to go, what to do. We dined at several great restaurants based on their advice; they are a mine of information that greatly added to our enjoyment. They even arranged a pizza party for us when we all cooked our own pizzas in the outdoor oven! The house itself is truly magnificent. We had 3 apartments between 11 of us. Lots of room, everything required was provided, wine ready cooled in the fridge. It is well furnished with comfortable beds, endless hot water, TV, CD player etc in every apartment. The kids loved it. The more daring of us used the pool for a final swim of the year. I would highly recommend Casal dei Fichi for a family holiday at any time of the year; the house is perfect and the area provides so much to see and do. All in all a wonderful holiday.

“Sunny Autumn days at the beautiful Casal Dei Fichi”

The hosts and accommodation were exceptional. Marvellous views and real comfort.
Everything you could wish for......If you could find the smallest fault, tell the hosts
Bob and Ian , and it will be fixed instantly.

Extremely clean - very well cared for, a great old house and atmosphere in which to enjoy Le Marche - this lovely part of Italy...so far fairly undiscovered .

Liked best: Views, comfort and swimming pool
Liked least: pillows on the bed could be softer - but Italy always championed tough pillows.

“Fabulous holiday run by great people”

Our second stay equally enjoyable as the first. Family of 4 with two children 9 and 7 years.
We had the benefit of staying in two apartments over the two weeks and combining that with our previous stay 3 in total. All are equally as comfortable and very well equipped.
Bob and Ian are great hosts and are there when you need them and willing to join in for the occasional bottle of wine!
Wonderful pool and setting combined with the opportunity of meeting other guests if you choose to.

Beautiful countryside and inexpensive local restaurants. The coast is an hour or so away and has many great beaches, lovely restaurants too.

It really is so so good.
