Casal Dei Fichi

About Casal dei Fichi

If you're planning your next holiday, so are we!

A traditional brick built farmhouse, casal(e), standing on the southern slope of a small valley in a hectare of landscaped gardens, orchards and olive trees. By the house are several large fig trees, fichi, which are abundant with fruit in June and October. We are surrounded by mixed farmland of sunflowers, corn, vines, olives and woodland. The medieval towns of Monte Giorgio and Monte San Pietrangelli sit atop the facing hills and

the soft peel from the bells in the ancient hamlet of Alteta echo across the valley.

The 15m heated pool is boarded by a large decked area equipped with sun loungers and shades, can sip a cocktail, relax in the sun or simply soak up the inspirational views of hilltop towns, rolling country and the Sibillini mountains. In addition to a private garden for each apartment there are extensive landscaped gardens where you can find sun, shade or tranquillity under the pergola or in a hammock among the fig, olive and walnut trees. Help yourself each day to our seasonal produce of vegetables, pick from the herb garden, find fruit in the orchard and have eggs from our free range chickens. The original brick bread oven is ideal for our weekly complementary summer pizza party where get a chance to make pizzas of your choice. There are also several barbeque areas so you can cook and eat al fresco!


The building has been carefully restored to retain the character of the house with its original Sienna terracotta roof, wooden beams and tiled floors. Six unique holiday apartments have been created over the ground and first floors which complement the farmhouse style with comfortable furnishings, 21st century plumbing and fully equipped kitchens.

Casal dei Fichi is a short walk from the small town of Francavilla d'Ete which has a selection of shops, bars and a restaurant. There are several other excellent restaurants within a few minutes drive of Casal dei Fichi.

For those wishing to stray from Casal dei Fichi we are close to beautiful historic towns of Macerata and Fermo; Ascoli Piceno and Urbino are also within easy reach. The blue flag beaches of the Adriatic coast and the awesome Sibillini mountains (for skiing, climbing, walking and cycling) are both within 30 minutes. We are also within an hour of Ancona airport and 90 minutes from Pesacra and Rimini (Flight options) We look forward to welcoming you to Casal dei Fichi and sharing the delights of this wonderful setting with you.
