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.

We were last in the sibillini walking just before the big earthquake and stayed here before walking to Visso. This time we started and finished here, walking back from Castelluccio. It’s lovely to be back. A lovely old house with plenty of space inside and out- big bedrooms and sitting areas inside and places to sit in sun or shade outside. The family are charming and so helpful- no fuss meeting us from the bus from Spoleto at 2100 and then dinner. Italian breakfast and good home cooking set dinner. Strongly recommended!

My friends and I travel to Italy each year for hiking. It’s become a ritual and an experience we truly value...spending time together and enjoying the environment. This year we were in Norcia a town that was devastated by an earthquake in 2017. A terrible experience however the people are “rebuilding” and their attitude and resilience was a lesson for us in dealing with what life throws at you. And then there was FonteAntica..a wonderful agriturismo in nearby Capri with Giovanni our host. The accommodation was very comfortable, the rooms well appointed, the meals great and the service outstanding. Giovanni really understands customer service and was ever ready to attend to our every need. I really recommend the place and will definitely return....fabulous and somewhat “humbling” experience.

This place not only is super welcoming to all types of groups, family, friends, couples, they make us feel part of their household, not guests and yes family members. The bed is just so comfortable i wanted to stay their forever but got up to have breakfast and was amazed with the table all of all freshly made bread/ jam/ yogurt/ cakes and crostata:) a pity that they were forced to open only in the weekend due to lack of tourism in the Norcia province. This place i will defiantly return and book the traditional tastes of Norcia cuisine dinner and i di recommend to all travelers 🙌🏻 the owner him self is an extremely kind soul, as we were without a car and a cab ride to Cascia was 45 euro, he offered to take us by car and went explaining the town of Norcia and its stories to us the while ride down these beautiful enchanted views, priceless and grateful :)

We were part of a group which took over the agriturismo for 4 nights. It was a great experience. Our room was spacious, bathroom had everything you need. Breakfast was abundant and the evening meal was always delicious. The evening meal is the same for everybody (but dietary requirements are catered for): this is not a restaurant with a menu to choose from. The owners bent over backwards to be helpful. The surrounding scenery is just stunning. I would go back tomorrow! Please give it a try. They desperately need people to return after the earthquake. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

we walked from norcia here, and then the following day to visso. It completely exceeded our expectations and we hope to return next year ....elisabetta and giovanni were delightful, and nothing seemed too much trouble. Delicious dinners, and the house beautifully and simply restored - not fussy and overdone.Strongly recommended.
