“Another excellent stay at Casa Fontana”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

We returned this month for our second stay at Casa Fontana and it was every bit as good as our first stay. Ron and Susi welcomed us back so warmly we soon felt at home and very relaxed. Again the room was clean and very comfortable, the breakfast was excellent (including homemade marmalade which was lovely), the garden was beautiful and relaxing and the service by Ron and Susi was top notch. We loved Barga, walking and the local wine but mostly we enjoyed coming back to Casa Fontana where we knew we would have a great place to stay and be looked after. Cannot recommend Casa Fontana highly enough!

Whilst on a recent whistle stop tour of Tuscany we spent three great nights at Casa Fontana, made memorable thanks to the wonderful hospitality of our hosts, Ron and Susi.
From the moment you step over the threshold you get a real sense of community and warmth. From the beautiful and sympathetic restoration of the property by local artisans through to the delicious breakfast of cheese and meats sourced from local producers, everything is just right.
Our hosts, Ron and Susi made every effort to make us feel welcome, from recommending and booking local restaurants to providing topical guidance on the best hiking trails. Its fair to say that we were genuinely disappointed when we had to leave at the end of the stay and spent the remainder of our holiday reminiscing about our stay with them. We would definitely recommend Casa Fontana and have done so on many occasions since our return to the UK.

Just spent four days at the Casa Fontana in Barga. From Ron meeting our bus on arrival to our departure, we were treated royally and made to feel so welcome. The house itself has been beautifully restored and the rooms are very comfortable. Susie and Ron serve a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt, muesli, local cheeses, Proscuitto, local breads and homemade jams and there is always tea, coffee and beer and wine for those who want it. Ron and Susie provided lots of information on local walks, things to see and do and places to eat. The restaurants in Barga are very good and the little town is very easy to walk around and very photogenic. Despite not having the best of weather while we were there we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Barga and the Casa Fontana.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a bath and others a shower. All have a good view.

We recently returned from a week at Casa Fontana. The accommodation was recommended by a friend who has been several times. Now we know why! Barga is a lovely, friendly place with lots of good restaurants. Stunning walks can be taken right from the door of the b&b. The hosts (Ron and Susi) are a mine of information and offer advice about eating, walks and days out (e.g. places to park on a day trip to nearby Lucca). Casa Fontana itself is a beautiful, comfortable place to stay and the breakfast of local produce was just perfect. We really enjoyed the views form our balcony and I really appreciated being able to make a cup of tea whenever I wanted! We will definitely visit again.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room with a view of the old town for three nights (because a balcony room was not ava...

The most wonderful place to stay - beautiful place (not to mention the views). Wonderful hosts happy to share the secrets of Barga and surrounds. I can't wait to go back, to explore some more, and enjoy the delights of sitting in the garden at Casa Fontana.

Terrific place to stay, owners are the very best at what they do, would definitely stay here again. Spent four nights here in a lovely room with a balcony and delightful view. Breakfast was excellent, including homemade jam from their garden area. Owners could not have been nicer if more informative.

Casa Fontana is a BEAUTIFUL Bed and Breakfast that is comfortable, airy, wonderfully detailed with a combination of old and new. Ron and Susi are the most fantastic hosts you could ask for. We were in Italy for two weeks and our stay at Casa Fontana was the first stop (9/29/13-10/3/13) and we've never been to Italy before. We were greeted by Ron and Susi and they have the uncanny knack for making you feel like an old friend immediately. They love their home and what they do and it oozes out of them. We stayed in the Apricot Room which had a balcony overlooking the sleeping monk mountain ridge - STUNNING. Ron and Susi were there when you needed and not when you didn't. They helped plan "walking trips" (really hikes for a non-athletic girl like myself) but my outdoorsy husband really enjoyed. Breakfast was fabulous every morning with fresh pressed coffee, or teas if that's what you wanted. Juices, homemade chutney and jams from Susi's garden across the road, fresh local bread, cheese from a sheep farm not too far away (we passed on one of our "walks") and shaved meats that Ron shaved fresh on his meat slicer. Fresh fruits were also available and seasonal from Susi's garden. What a treat this stay was, I cannot express how wonderful both my husband and I thought it was. Please heed Ron's suggestion of leaving your car outside of the 'old town' and walk to the B&B. The "roads" inside old town are not much more than alleyways with odd/sharp turns you don't want to bother with. Plus, you can get a ride with Ron in his super car and revel at his expertise maneuvering around!! Thank you Ron and Susi for starting our trip off to the most fantastic start. Unfortunately it meant the other B&B's we stayed at had a REALLY high standard set. When my husband and I travel we soak in everything and move on to the next place but we both said we'd go back to Barga for a longer stay and with absolutely no doubt, stay at Casa Fontana!!!
