A friend and I came here to do a cooking lesson, eat and hang out. The property is set in the beautiful countryside near where all the Brunello wineries are located so perfect for wine tasting. Our host Alina is full of energy, is a great cook and wonderful host. We had a really good time just hanging out and... More

My daughter and I spent only 2 days and 2 nights at Il Fontanaro. Much too short a time, but enough to know that I will be returning with my husband in the near future. Everything here, from Lucia's warmth to the beauty of the cottages and grounds, comes together to create a little slice of heaven under the Umbrian... More

We had a lovely week in Fontanaro. We liked the way that Lucia and Alina just let us get on with it, yet at the same time were really friendly and helpful. So when our toddlers strayed over to the main house and walked up the stairs and into their apartment it wasn't a problem. There were a couple of... More

Quaint cottages owned by the indefatigable Alina (and her mom Lucia) whose greatest asset is getting you into the hardest to get into restaurant in surrounding areas, even at a moment's notice. Best way to experience Umbrian countryside hospitality, food and culture. Mother and daughter's dedication to the fruits of their garden and orchard, as well as to the slow... More

We spend a very relaxing week in this very chilled out Umbrian village. Our one bedroom apartment was a really good size, nice and clean and most of all cosy. It was ideal both as a base to explore the wider region and for spending a few evening sitting by the fire, reading a book, drinking the lovely wine from... More

Once again we have had the best week of our trip to Europe at Fontanaro Farm! Sometimes when you return to a special place years later, it does not live up to your expectations, for us returning to 'our home in Umbria' last month was very exciting and our visit exceeded our expectations. We were welcomed once again like family,... More

The villa was nice and clean, the little town of Paciano was awesome and the people with Il Fontanaro were very accommodating. Kind of hate to write a post about them because I would like for it to stay our secret! The last night Alina invited our group to a "blues" concert. The food was awesome and the music was... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Il Fontanaro. The property is extremely special but the warmth and hospitality of the people (Alina and Lucia) was what made it truly magical. Our apartment was spacious, clean and charmingly authentic. Our patio overlooked the olive grove and the sunsets were spectacular. After rushing around Venice & Florence this was... More

The house, the people, the view, cooking class and a great town. It was all just the best vacation 3 gals could have. We all want to come back soon. LOVED IT, LOVED IT. Lucia, Alina and all the staff couldn't be nicer. They really looked after us, invited us to party with them. We felt like family.
