Fikus is the dream of Luisa and Francesco, a young couple, both born and bred Apulians, who ventured out into the world before returning to their roots.
They decided to swap their busy lives in an international city to a slower paced lifestyle in the countryside of the Valle D’Itria.
However, with Fikus they manage to incorporate both worlds- warm Apulian hospitality with a modern and slightly unconventional approach. Instead of travelling themselves, Luisa and Francesco now welcome international guests in their little paradise with open arms and open minds.
When staying at Fikus guests basically become part of the family. Breakfast is served at a long communal table and there are only three rooms in total. While it is easy to find some privacy- every room is equipped with its own private terrace plus mini kitchen and the grounds are vast and beautiful- it is always a pleasure having a chat with the lovely hosts who live on site.
The décor of the rooms is focusing on the idea of giving disregarded furniture and other items a second and often better life. It is playful yet sleek and modern.
By the way, Luisa and Francesco got married right here, on their land, and are also very happy to give other couples the same opportunity: a magic Apulian wedding or birthday or…!
Fikus is definitely a place you will keep in your heart- most of all for the generous warmth and hospitality of the owners!

“Der Urlaub war wirklich wunderschön. Die Unterkunft war ein Traum. Die Anlage ist wunderschön und die Gastgeber Francesco und Luisa waren toll. Wir haben uns sehr willkommen gefühlt, die beiden waren extrem zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit und haben uns mit vielen Restaurant-Tipps versorgt. Rundum also alles top!”
(F. Remmers, Germany, September 2017)

“Wir waren mit unserem Urlaub sehr zufrieden. Wir haben mehrere Städte erkundet, am besten hat uns Ceglie Messapica gefallen. In Cisternino waren wir im Restaurant Giardini 36, welches uns besonders entzückt hat. Ans Meer sind wir natürlich auch gefahren. Am liebsten waren wir aber tatsächlich im Fikus, dort war es einfach wunderschön und die Gastgeber überaus freundlich.”
(Elisa N., Italy, September 2017)

“The trip and wedding were absolutely amazing. Puglia is such a great area and our stay was perfect. Luisa and Francesco were great hosts and the property was perfect. Exactly what we were looking for. Thank you so much for your help arranging everything and we will definitely be back! Until next time!”
(M. Murton, U.S.A., May 2017)
