We had 10 days at Casal dei Fichi this August- it was quite simply a wonderful experience ! Just what we were looking for in a holiday. A beautiful pool with a view and landscaped gardens with lavender, grapes and not forgetting the vegetable patch for our lunchtime tomato salads. Large spacious cool apartment with lots of outdoor space for eating.
Bob and Ian were perfect hosts - so friendly and ready to share their local knowledge , helping us explore the countryside and coast. Would love to return when the sunflowers in the surrounding fields are in bloom!
stayed for 1 week after 1 week stay in tuscany. this lovely place, perfect to calm down and relax but aswell perfect situated to visit wonderful little villages, hotspots for historic buildings and so on. for bikers excellent to make tours including steep ascents, perfect natural surrounding.
the casal itselve is a real lovely place surrounded by nature, perfect views, lovely dogs and cats. the owners Bob and Ian always have a helping hand, perfect tipps and they make your stay perfect. you can see and feel that they are doingnthis with passion and thats why you feel so comfortable.
the marche, this beautiful country house are perfect for us and our stay so thats why we will come again .. theres a lot left to see and visit ... DONˋT forget to ask them for the best beach ... you will be surprised and impressed.
We stayed a week at Casal dei Fichi and really enjoyed it. Bob and Ian are very nice hosts and understand how to make you feel welcome and at home.
The big plus of this location is the well equipped kitchen, the supply of soap, dishwasher tablets, wine, olive oil etc etc Never seen such a service like that before!
Their care for the environment and how they gently challenge you to do that is pretty cool, although we are not so much into that subject.
At the same time that eco-friendly attitude means that they don't have airco in the apartment and we really missed that. They do provide a ventilator fan, but that was not enough for us to keep it cool inside. Especially the kitchen felt like an oven during daytime.
A mad dog of the neighbor was not really helpful to sleep through the night but that is something they couldn't help.
For us the house was a bit too far from nice, vivid cities, but if you love rest, nature, great views, nice apartments and excellent hospitality, this is the place to be!
We stayed at Casal dei Fichi for a week. We really enjoyed the place. Bob and Ian have built fantastic place to stay in the lovely Marche. As professionals working in sustainability and renewable energy we were especially nicely surprised by all the efforts, actions and initiatives they have taken at their place. From efforts to reduce water usage and plastic, planting trees for carbon compensation (the kids love their own avocado trees planted in Kenya!), solar panels and so much more. They have really thought about everything, which is very impressive.
We had a lovey stay. Unfortunately no pizza night due to Corona! So we will have to come back for this another year.
Thanks Bob, Thanks Ian!

We visited Casal Del Fichi in July, two adults and one 2 year old. We stayed in the apt called Orsini and that worked perfectly for us. Ian and Bob are super helpful with recommendations in the area and we went to the coast almost every day but also enjoyed the nice pool. The view from the room and your “private” garden is stunning and we had dinner at home most nights. You can just use their BBQ pit and there are so many great super markets nearby where you’ll find fresh meet etc. We could then get our own tomatoes, lettuce, basil etc from their garden and our daughter loved to cuddle with the dogs. For breakfast you can get fresh eggs and the kitchen has all the supplies you want for nice coffee etc
The area of Marche is truly a hidden gem and we didn’t manage to visit all the places we wanted to so we for sure want to come back!
