My husband and I booked one night here with their "Stay and Dine" package - one night in a superior room, a 4-course tasting wine dinner, and the winery tour, for 256 euro. We loved it so much, we booked another night. The village is amazing, and most staff, we learned, live on the property. The views and sights are nothing short of breathtaking, but it's really the level of service that, in our view, set this experience apart. Everyone was so genuinely kind (not the level of "kind" that comes from just wanting your money.) The wait staff as the Osteria was amazing, as were the ladies at the front desk, who put up with our "new reservation" not once, but twice.
The rooms are fantastic. Clean, large, and well-suited for leisure travelers, situated in old buildings. There is no tv (but who wants one, anyway?) and wi-fi is free, but only one in your party can use it at a time.
Next trip to Italy, we are skipping the cities, and going directly back to Fonterutoli.
