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

Traveling as a family with adult daughter, we ended our trip here and will definitely return. The accommodations were lovely, surrounded by olive trees and roses. The grounds and the gardens are gorgeous, loved and well kept. Alina and Lucia provided us with everything we needed to make our stay at Il Fontanaro a pure delight. Our cooking lesson was... More

Highly highly recommend this place! We took a gluten free cooking class (country slow living) led by Alina and Lucia- the food was delicious and working in their kitchen on the farm is something I will never forget. Lucia keeps a beautiful garden full of fruits and vegetables and they have olive trees and grape vines which they make their... More

This is my second visit back to Il Fontanero and i rarely ever visit a place twice so that's how special this is! Alina & her mother Lucia have created warm welcoming holiday homes that are beautifully decorated and thoughtfully provided for down to the fully equipped kitchen, antique dressers, well stocked larder and welcome gifts of home made orange...

My wife and I stayed 5 nights from May 19 thru May 23, 2015. We have travelled many places and this ranks with the best. This place is nestled in a small piece of paradise with endless rolling hills of vineyards and olive trees. Alina and Lucia are exceptional hosts and made us feel like family. We arrived at an...

If I could give Fontanaro 10 or 10,000 stars, I would. It is a slice of paradise operated by two of the most wonderful women I've ever met and who have become friends for life. Located in Paciano, a small village in Umbria with a population of 1000, Fontanaro is an agriturismo which produces wine, olive oil (Silver medal winner... More

We kept saying "this is paradise". Beautiful villa and gracious warm family who welcomed us into their lives. Alina's cooking class gave us info about their organic olive oil, wine, honey, and local fare, well as a chance to try her methods...and then enjoy the results. We walked into the peaceful medieval town of Paciano most days and look forward... More

We spent 3 nights at Il Fontanaro and our only regret is that we didn't stay for longer! The property is just beautiful and we really felt at home. We stayed in Frantoio and the accomodations were comfortable and well appointed. Alina and Lucia were so welcoming and inviting and we felt like part of their family. They invited us... More

We spent five nights at Leccino, Fontanaro and it was a lovely little cottage in idyllic surroundings. Paciano was great as well - tiny and sleepy but exactly what we wanted. It was absolutely beautiful and a perfect way to start a honeymoon!

We had such a wonderful time here. We spent the best month at Il Fontanaro. Stunning scenery, great villa. Most of all the warmth and welcome from Alina and Lucia to our family. Lovely days eating and wandering the garden. Our son loved it and misses Bacco and Ettore the placid Labradors. Can't wait to go back we were so... More
