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.
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.
This place is a labour of love of the family that has owned it for generations. It has been beautifully restored and turned into a B&B well worth visiting. The rooms are large and comfortable. The bathroom was well equipped and very inviting (i.e. long restorative soak). There has been a lot of thought put into every aspect of the restoration, with furniture and artwork reflecting a bygone era. The grounds are very pleasant, a great place to sit out the sunset, and there's even a sauna out there which would be amazing in winter, I imagine. The dinner was prepared by the friendly owner and was excellent. The breakfast was equally good. We found it a quiet and peaceful place and would love to stay again if we ever return to this gorgeous region.
A beautifully appointed ex farm house. Twelve guest bedrooms all with antique furniture. Large comfortable beds , good en suite bathrooms with excellent towels . Extensive grounds. Buffet breakfast. Four course set dinners available with interesting local Italian twists. The hosts Giovani , Elisabetta and Paulo could not have been more helpful. Nothing was to much trouble .Charming people with a delightful place close to the old town of Campi
Hotel accomodation is adequate and meets average demands. Beds are good, shower bath is basic. Water pressure fluctuates occasionally. Hotel location ideal for photographic exploration tours . Also Hotel is in a picturesque landscape. Food and breakfast is fine. The noise from barking dogs night by night can become deplorable . Hotel director advises that he cannot do much abt contineous noise . Also party music can be most disturbing at times and must be put up with. Guests shud try to avoid room facing road and parking side.
Very good accommodation at the edge of the Monti Sibellini national park. Comfortable rooms furnished in keeping with the house. We were lucky enough to be there one night when the restaurant was open for some excellent home cooking, we would certainly recommend eating dinner here. The breakfast is good too, including delicious homemade bread, (and hot water for tea!) Located about 10 km from Norcia; and although the driving is along very twisty mountain roads the drive to the Piano Grande - the magnificent central plain of the the Monti Sibellini park and on to Castelluccio it is well worth it, and an easy day trip from here. Giovanni is a very friendly, welcoming host who genuinely takes the time to makes his guests feel welcome.
