I was looking for a place with a pool near Orvieto. Borgo Fontanile was the perfect choice, less than ten minutes away from Orvieto. Paola and Domenico are very gracious and hospitable hosts. Paola does the cooking and Domenico, besides tending to the animals and farm, serves the food in the open-sided dining room. Although the place is a little rough around the edges in some regard, our studio apartment was designed with all the modern Italian fittings shown in magazines. The pool was a blessing after returning from visits to Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoregio (a must). We thought we would drive to Orvieto in the evening, but after enjoying a delicious glass of chilled white wine and cured meats offered by Domenico and then having one of Paola's three-course dinners, there clearly was no reason to leave. We were lucky to share the after-dinner entertainment of karaoke with two Italian families as well as with Paola and Domenico -- and glasses of lemoncello just added to the festivities. Our three-night stay at this extraordinary agriturismo certainly was magical and memorable.
