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.

Most comfortable agriturismo: spatious and cool rooms. Very nice dinner: traditional cooking of good quality. Very quiet place. Perfect for walking: on the track of various trails in Umbria. Information available at the agriturismo. Most friendly hosts.

Stayed in this wonderfully atmospheric C18th farmhouse in June 2014 whilst exploring the area photographically. Giovanni, Elizabetta and Paolo were extremely welcoming and Elizabetta worked so hard to provide fabulous home-cooked food for breakfast and dinner. Hat's off to her - does she ever sleep?

I was a bit shell-shocked initially as it was so quiet and peaceful and there is no TV etc in the rooms. But after a couple of days, I'd totally adjusted (sneaked the TV in via the downloads on my IPad) and had some of the best quality sleep I've experienced in years. It is such a charming place.

The whole area is so beautiful and it is a perfect base to explore Monte Sibilini and surroundings. I cannot wait to return to this stunning part of Italy.

I've been meaning to write a review ever since we got back, because Fonte Antica was just the most perfect place to stay. The family are incredibly welcoming and so happy to help find walks, book local restaurants, drive us all up the hill to a music festival in the village and make all their guests incredibly welcome. The bedrooms are spacious, beautifully furnished with antiques, good showers, great bug screens on the windows, lovely linen on the beds. The rest of the house is wonderfully restored and our three children (two teenage boys and a 9 year old girl) enjoyed the table football, pool table, table tennis, mountain bikes, excellent playground with swings and slides and boules. The sound of the spring flowing into the stone tank in the courtyard lulled us to sleep each night, after the most delicious and interesting food served at 8.15pm on the dot each evening. We had a really truly lovely week's stay and would love to visit again. Definitely one to recommend to family and friends - albeit with some trepidation because the Monte Sibillini are so magical and peaceful and we'd quite like them to stay relatively undiscovered!

As a base for walking in the Sibillini Mountains FonteAntica was ideal. The location is lovely and very peaceful. This ancient family house has been very well renovated and the rooms are big, airy and comfortable. There's a lovely garden to sit in and relax to the trickle of the natural spring that the Agriturismo is named after. There is nice walking in the immediate area and within short drives. The owners are very open, warm and extremely helpful with their excellent advice about the area, where to go and what to do. The food in-house is very good and there are also many excellent restaurnats in the area if you have the energy to go out after a day in the mountains. The area is great for walking, cycling (road and off-road), horse riding, paragliding and many other pursuits. In spring the flowers are stunning, and in summer it's much cooler than the beach.

Response from Paolo_1691, Proprietario at FonteAntica
Responded May 22, 2013
Being able to fall in love our guests of our land is one of the goals we have set ourselves. These areas, away from popular tourist sites are the real resource of our country and must be preserved and publicized. It is necessary for their survival. We try to make a small contribution to offering our home, our roots and our hospitality. Really thank you for your compliments. We are waiting still. Paolo

A fantastic discovery!! We were taken here for a long weekend by friends who had been before and my heavens what a place to visit! This beautifully restored Italian country house is family owned and run and every last detail has been thought of. Fantastic food, fantastic hospitality, roaring open fires in the chill of Autumn and Winter, all kinds of outdoor and indoor activities for both adults and children. While we were there the family had organised an evening of Jazz and local Sagrantino wine. Dinner menues are fixed but really do present an opportunity to taste the very best of genuine local produce, pecorino cheese, famous cured meats from Norcia, risottos, homemade pasta to mention just a few... After a hearty breakfast we were given the kind of excellent information to help us explore the network of marked walking trails in the area that you can only get from a local. This is an excellent place to come to really get away from it all weather you want a romantic retreat or a family activity holiday. I can't recommend it highly enough.

We came to Fonteantica for a business retreat with a group of 12 colleagues aged 25 to 60. Everyone enjoyed it and appreciated the atmosphere, the friendliness and the food, while also taking advantage of a fully equipped meeting room during the day, and of a pool table during the evening.
As a group coordinator (and an Italian) I was particularly proud to see that there are still people who enjoy offering excellent hospitality and believe in what they are doing, to the point of infusing passion and dedication even in the minutest details. Giovanni, Paolo and Elisabetta: thanks to you we had a very productive time together, and we enjoyed every minute.

Keep it up and hopefully see you soon.

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.
