Stayed in this wonderfully atmospheric C18th farmhouse in June 2014 whilst exploring the area photographically. Giovanni, Elizabetta and Paolo were extremely welcoming and Elizabetta worked so hard to provide fabulous home-cooked food for breakfast and dinner. Hat's off to her - does she ever sleep? I was a bit shell-shocked initially as it was so quiet and peaceful and there... More

I've been meaning to write a review ever since we got back, because Fonte Antica was just the most perfect place to stay. The family are incredibly welcoming and so happy to help find walks, book local restaurants, drive us all up the hill to a music festival in the village and make all their guests incredibly welcome. The bedrooms... More

Giovanni and his brother and sister run a wonderful Agriturismo. As good as any we have stayed in in Italy and we have stayed in lots. Nothing was too much trouble. Home bread and home made ricotta for breakfast fresh every day as well as the usual italian cakes etc.. Four course suppers at reasonable prices.

Campi was the next-to-last leg during our hike on the Grande Annello. Compared to rifugios and other B&Bs we had experienced on the way, Fonte Antica was obviously a dip in pure luxury. From the large room with delicately preserved furniture to an unexpected pool table (great for our teenager guy), from the garden inviting us to relax to the... More

Beautiful place, wonderful people and great cooking! Warmly recommended. The surroundings are spectacular with the Monti Sibillini and idyllic Norcia and Castelluccio nearby. Umbria is one of Italy' s lesser known regions but it has a lot to offer a visitor. The food is the best in the country and most sights are not too crowded. Can only say go... More

A delightful, authentic country agritourismo in Campi, near Preci and Norcia. We had a very friendly welcome from one of the family owners, right in the middle of beautiful hikes, terrific restaurant and the vicinity. If you like Italy, nature and an authentically restored home, this a great place.

As a base for walking in the Sibillini Mountains FonteAntica was ideal. The location is lovely and very peaceful. This ancient family house has been very well renovated and the rooms are big, airy and comfortable. There's a lovely garden to sit in and relax to the trickle of the natural spring that the Agriturismo is named after. There is... More

Being able to fall in love our guests of our land is one of the goals we have set ourselves. These areas, away from popular tourist sites are the real resource of our country and must be preserved and publicized. It is necessary for their survival. We try to make a small contribution to offering our home, our roots and... More

This was our first stay in an Italian Agriturismo and we really enjoyed it. Fonte Antica is a family business, the farmhouse has been in the same family since the 1700’s. The whole establishment is based in various parts of the well restored original farm house, over all 3 floors. You do need to use stairs to access the various... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As the owners and managers of FonteAntica we aim to fully express the spirit of enthusiasm we have for hospitality and the love that we have for our region and our land. In 2008 we opened the doors of our house to guests so that they might discover the roots that we have laid down here; it was, for us, a dream come true. The 18h century house has been fully renovated, carefully preserving the original features of the house as far as possible. This care has also been taken with each of our ten ensuite rooms (two of which are fully accessible for the disabled). The rooms have been restored using the best of materials and are furnished with original 18th and 19th century pieces, guaranteeing both your utmost comfort and the most authentic atmosphere possible. Our cooking is 100% Umbrian, made using our own genuine home produce along with other carefully selected local produce. We serve a fixed menu and the dining area is reserved exclusively for our house-guests. A hearty buffet breakfast of homemade dishes awaits you in the morning to get your day off to a good start. In the large park outside you will be immersed in the lush Umbrian vegetation, where the only noises you'll hear are the twitter of birds and the sound of water coming up from the spring. We offer our guests a wide range of services and activities. Indoors there is a reading room with a fireplace, a billiard table, table top football, darts and board games. While outdoors there are mountain bikes, a ping pong table, a children's play area, archery and an area to play the Italian equivalent of boules: Bocce. We can organise courses for those interested in cookery, Norcineria (the preparation of local cured meets and cheeses) and how to find truffles. We can also organise hill walking trips, walking trips with mules, pony trekking, mountain biking, tasting events, evenings and weekends with a theme, murder mystery dinners, hen and stag parties and small receptions as well as team building and motivational activities such as (rafting, obstacle courses, archery, Nordic Walking and walking with snowshoes). It's the ideal place for groups of friends, families with children and couples in search of some quality time together. ... more   less
