My husband and I stayed six nights in this delightful small hotel. Samuele was a wonderful, gracious host, giving us ideas of places to visit nearby. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. Although the pool was closed in late September, we enjoyed the view. The best part of this hotel is the restaurant! Delicious food, beautifully... More

This family-run Antico (country house) is perfectly located to serve as a base to spend several days visiting Umbria's important tourist attractions. From just 6 quick miles south of Perugia, you can reach all points of interest within 45 minutes ( Assisi, Spoleto, Spello, Todi, Orvieto, etc). Deruta itself is a well appointed town famous for its majolica ceramics. It... More

The country house is not that easy to find (but what country house is) but once you find it, it's on this idyllic hillside location that overlooks the town of Casalina next to Deruta. The room is basic and spacious with country touches. It's got everything you need plus a working air conditioner that they even turn on before I... More

We (with another couple) stayed at L'Antico Forziere for a few days back in June. When you approach it there is a bit of concern since it's fairly close to the Autostrada. Fear not. You can't really tell that it's there. This a is a truly charming place, operated by a gracious family. Our rooms were spacious and comfortable. The... More

We stayed at L'Antico Forziere last year and decided to come back again! Glad we did! The room (we had a different one than last year) was nice, we enjoyed the pool, the trips to all the small villages and of course the friendliness and the food and wine at the fabulous restaurant. Our only regret was that we could... More

I was at the Antico Forziere recently for a very special occasion: the wedding of a friend. I have to say probably one of the best location I have ever been for a wedding.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay immensely. The inn is full of rustic charm – a country house with thick stone walls, well kept grounds and a picturesque view of Casalina and the Umbrian countryside. Even better, there is a comfortably rugged restaurant that serves heavenly food. There is room for walking and exploring, and a lovely covered patio... More

A beautiful room and lovely presentation does not compensate for small portions of well done, but not outstanding food. The menu is international with an Italian influence. You are welcomed with a very small pour of prosecco and an amuse bouche. A nice wine list, widely assorted and well priced. However, in Italy one expects a choice of house wines... More
