A lovely "Family" home in the country, but walking distance to town for the hardy. Love European living, style and flavor? Villa La Fontana has just the right ambiance. Centrally located in Italy you have many options to see the country. Having a car is a real plus for site seeing and dining out but Rome is just a train... More

A group of 5 of us stayed at La Fontana in October. The setup of the house worked well because we had 1 couple and three singles. The house and grounds were very charming and we loved spending breakfast before heading out for the day with the kitchen window wide open to an amazing view. We cooked almost all dinners... More

Thank you for your comments on La Fontana. We really appreciate your stay. With respect to driving, the roads are quite twisting, but it is part of the charm of an old landscape. The Via Flaminia, an old Roman road that goes all the way to the Adriatic coast has some amazing vista's and I would also recommend the drive... More

We loved our time in Amelia staying in this historic and authentic farm house! Beautiful terrace overlooking olive groves with a sweeping view of the valley. The house is beautifully furnished and appointed with all of the modern touches (hi definition tv's, wifi, satellite cable) that we come to depend on. The hill town of Amelia is charming and there...

A perfect place to relax in a private atmosphere and to explore from there interesting places like Orvieto, Spoleto, Todi, Assissi, etc. or the many beautiful villages nearby . The main... More

November at La Fontana. We staid during the Olive harvest and spent a wonderful time in the olive grove picking olives in the organic "garden". Some of these trees are over 200 years old, all gnarled and look like the Yents in the "Lord of the Rings". Amelia is a funny town, still has an artisans feel to it, and... More

I was looking for a place to spend time in complete privacy with my family, seven people involving three generations! A site to rest, together with the possibility to wake up all the five senses present in the human being body! We first stayed nearby Spoleto in a so pleasant country house and, by chance, days later, wandering around, we... More

“Spent a week in La Fontana with my family and some friends of our grown up children. This is a great family vacation, as it is sufficiently spacious for us not to be on top of each other during the day, [has an outhouse where the younger ones could hang, a great pool down a long flight of stairs, [so...

La Fontana is an authentic 1500’ Farm house, which has been luxuriously renovated and furnished with antiques. It has a great garden, too. It is a wonderful holiday house for a family.

What I loved most about this property was waking up every morning opening the kitchen window and looking out over the olive orchards . It was like a postcard! The charming stone farmhouse was built in the 1500's , but you would never know it , as it was lovingly restored and has all the comforts of home including tasteful... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An authentic 600 year old Umbrian Farm House for WEEKLY rent only. The Villa has more than 7 acres of land and mature gardens, a PRIVATE swimming pool, and on-site parking. We are 2.2 kms from Amelia, so it is essential to have a car, especially if you wish to visit the many place of interest nearby. Max 7 persons. The rental rate depends on the season. The quote above is per day for 7 people. So the actual per person cost, assuming 7 stay one week, is Euro 30.28 per person low season or 35.71 per person high season. For 2012 High season start July 15th and goes to end of August, [Euro 1,750/week]. Medium Season goes from May 1st to June 15th and September 1st to September 30th, [Euro 1560/week]. Low season applies the rest of the year, [1,484/week]. To book please contact me by e-mail. Booking requires 50% down on booking and 50% 30 days prior to arrival. As the house is very well appointed I require a deposit for safe-keeping of Euro 500. If there is no damage, the deposit is returned net of a cleaning fee of Euro 130. We can if you wish provide a cook service, but this is an additional charge.Included are all linens, [save for pool towels], all garden/pool furniture, hammocks, barbeque, complimentary flowers at the beginning of your stay, all crockery, glasses. ... more   less
