Now that most people are about to have, or maybe have already had their summer holiday it may be time to line something up to see you through the autumn. Something to make those Monday mornings bearable.

Coming at the end of October when the weather is usually still very pleasant our Gourmet Breaks are a great way to get away for a few days of delicious indulgence. From the minute we meet you at the airport you can switch off and leave everything to us, we’ll take care of all the driving, menu selecting and ordering. Though if you have particular dietary requirements or preferences, we’ll make sure they are provided, vegetarian and vegans gladly catered for, or if you’d just like some more of that delicious pudding or wine – it’s no problem.

On the last morning as you head home you will wonder how you managed to do so much in 4 days yet still feel as if you’ve had a relaxing break. From the magnificent Sibillini mountains to the dramatic Conero coastline, wine tasting in the beautiful golden vineyards to seeing the olive harvest being processed in the brand new press, you will enjoy a fascinating insight into Marche and its delicious and varied cuisine.

We still have availability from 27 to 30 October when the weekend starts at Perugia airport. Passing Assisi we take you straight to the heart of the mountains for a gentle walk with the cutest truffle dog and you can watch her expertly and gently unearth the precious tubers. Lunch at a quirky local restaurant features fresh mountain produce with those very truffles.

Maybe it’s because of the amazing weather we’ve been having but other people are planning even further ahead. Many of our regular guests have asked us to book them in for next year. If you think you might be planning a visit to Casal dei Fichi in 2018 then please bear in mind that we are pretty heavily booked for June and July and August is starting to fill up too. We hate to disappoint people, particularly our loyal guests, and just wanted to make sure we’d let you know.

Finally, for those who aren’t able to plan ahead, we do have some space in late September and October this year, so if you are looking for some late summer sun our pool will still be open and is solar heated.

Enjoy the rest of the summer.
