Casal dei Fichi
About the home
Casal dei Fichi is a large old farmhouse which has been carefully converted into fully equipped apartments, each offering privacy and tranquility. Situated in a peaceful valley with spectaular views in all directions, guests can stay in a luxurious apartment with it's own dedicated private garden. Within the landscaped grounds is a 15m heated pool boarded by a large decked area with sun loungers and shades; here you can sip a cocktail, relax in the sun or simply soak up the inspirational views of hilltop towns, rolling countryside and the Sibillini mountains.
There is lots of space in the grounds to find sun, shade or tranquillity under the pergola or in a hammock among the fig, olive and walnut trees.
Help yourself, with our compliments, to our seasonal produce of vegetables, pick from the herb garden or find fruit in the orchard. We have our own chickens so there are always free range eggs waiting for you each day! The original outdoor brick bread oven is ideal for our weekly summer pizza party where you can try your hand at making your own pizza - perfect with a glass or two of local vino!
The apartment is equipped with everything you will need for a relaxing holiday including a fully fitted kitchen with all the appliances you would expect at home.

The Marche / Abruzzo / Marche region
Marche is on the Adriatic coast in central Italy, boarded by the regions of Umbria, Tuscany, Emilia Romana and Abruzzo. It is often described as 'all of Italy in one region' as it has a real diversity of terrain, coastline, towns and attractions. We describe it as 'the real Italy'.
We are in central Marche, one hours drive from Ancona airport and in an area of rolling hills and tranquil valleys. Each hill is topped by a medieval town waiting to be explored and with a small family restaurant where you can while away a long lunch or evening meal with a glass or two of the local wines
Each November you can take a fully inclusive 4 day break designed to give you a fascinating introduction to the Autumn highlights of Le Marche. With the backdrop of the olive harvest you will gain an insight into the cultivation and production of the finest olive oils whilst enjoying delicious regional dishes at a carefully selected range of restaurants.
The weekend includes an afternoon at an award winning vineyard where you will be introduced to top Marchigiani wines and learn about their production. You will spend a morning cooking with top academy chef Guida Stacchietti and eat your gourmet lunch at the eclectic Il Maniero art club. All costs are included eg meals, wine, tours and transport except flights. Please see the full description and dates on our website.

There are all the amenities here including shops, bars and a great simple restaurant. Within a few minutes drive there are several other towns with restaurants and bigger supermarkets and facilities.
Marche is full of fascinating towns and cities where you can explore the narrow streets, visit a local market, check out a museum or gallery or simply sit outside a street cafe and watch the world go by. The cities of Fermo, Ascoli Piceno and Urbino are all within a short drive. Macerta, which is 30 minutes away, hosts the annual Summer open air opera and in each town or village there is always a programme of live entertainment and festivals all through the long season.
Nearby to Casal dei Fichi are the fascinating Roman ruins of Urba Salvia and the Abbey where you can take lunch and explore the grounds.
The Sibillini National park is only 40 minutes by car where you can enjoy skiing in the Winter and walking throughout the year as well as ballooning, horse riding and climbing.
The well-known Grotte di Frasassi (Frasassi caves) are one of the largest caves systems in Europe. The caves offer an underground world of lakes, beautiful transparent alabaster formations, vaulted caverns and stalactites suspended like daggers. Guided tours are available throughout the year.
