This place took our breathe away. Alina and her family were very welcoming. The villa and the surrounding countryside is just gorgeous. We liked the fact that it was well situated and within easy access to Sienna, Orvieto, Perugia, Cortona, Florence and many other smaller towns that gave us the medieval experience.The villa itself is lovely, spacious, and well equipped....

After reading all the reviews prior to our vacation In July, my expectations were pretty high. I can honestly say that the reality far exceeded those expectations!!! Every one of the lovely things that I read on those reviews were true but the experience felt as if our family was receiving extra special treatment. We felt like we were special... More

We had a wonderful honeymoon stay. The location, the property, the villa, everything was wonderful. But honestly our favorite part was Bacco and Hector, the brown labs, and Cico (sp?) the cat. We didn't realize leaving the door open to invite in breezes would also invite in the animals but we loved it. It made the place really feel like... More

We loved our stay at Il Fontanaro, from the extremely thoughtful and helpful adventure advice from Lucia (better than any guide book!) to the champagne toast delivered to our door by Alina. We felt completely at home and extremely relaxed. Having the pool nearby, as well as plentiful access to the vegetable garden, made for all the more palatial experience.... More

Our family spent an amazing week in Sagrantino in mid July and loved every moment. The accommodation was very comfortable and spacious, and despite a heatwave during our stay the rooms stayed lovely and cool. The pool was fantastic with amazing views, there were beautiful gardens with plenty of wildlife and wonderful scents from the lavender and herbs and it... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Brunello house with two other couples in July 2015. The home was spacious and we loved the adjacent pool with a view of the green hills, the roomy porch for outdoor meals, the well-equipped and comfortable kitchen, and the peace and quiet of the area. The location, a short walk to the beautiful village,... More

This was our second visit to Il Fontanaro and in any aspects was even better than our previous trip. Lucia and Alina treated us like old family friends and were very helpful in organizing visits and restaurants during our stay. We will be returning to Il Fontanaro next year.

Our stay at Il Fontanaro was a dream. They grounds and villas are beautiful and the people even better. Lucia and Alina are so welcoming and treat you like family. We learned so much at our cooking class and just through talking with them on the porch. We got to explore the small towns nearby in Tuscany and Umbria with... More
