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. The country house is immersed in a green area really discreet. I have to say I often travel for work and visit hotels and guesthouses but... More

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
