“Pleasant camping, great restaurant”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

A very quiet and relaxed camping ground in the green with clean facilities, but the main attractions are the proximity to Assisi where you can easily walk to.We also found it very pleasant that you are not "kicked out" in front of the main attarction but that one slowly proceeds through town so that the crowds you are finally bound to meet don't disturb you too much since you have the assurance that a path and place of retreat are weainting for you again on your way back.
The second attraction definitely is the camping ground's restaurant with the open fire inside around which it gets very hot so it is better to choose a table a bit further away.I can only confirm that the steaks sausages etc. that leave the grill are real topshit and every thing would be just perfect if the house wine wouldn't have been such an impertinence...in the middle of a winw growing country...!? but just order a bottle and enjoy nevertheless...

Five years ago, I visited Fontemaggio for the first time while backpacking through Europe with my little tent. When I came back this year, I was welcomed like a long-lost friend. It was amazing. The camp site is calm with lots of shade and a beautiful view. Next time I stayed in one of the hotel rooms that are simple but clean. The restaurant is amazing: simple, honest food prepared by female chefs who tend the open fire. Their roasted and grilled meats, veggies and potatoes are to die for. The menu hasn't been changed for years, but why would you? Under the pergola, I'd eat this kind of rustic Umbrian food over and over again. I will keep coming back to this place, the personal touch makes all the difference.
