“Absolutely magnificent”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

We rented Antico Fio for three days in June 2014 to celebrate our wedding together with friends and family. We very comfortably fitted 34 people but could have fitted at least four more without resorting to the multiple sofa double beds.

The location is excellent with breathtaking views across rolling hills towards Poppi and its castle. It is secluded with a high degree of privacy, as long as the neighbouring party venue is not in use. In our case, the owners specifically made sure this was empty during our stay. The distance to the castle is about three kilometres, very walkable according to the guests who did so. This is important since several of our guests encountered problems obtaining a taxi in Poppi.

We rented the entire facility and saw all the apartments. They are all very nice, in good condition, clean, plenty of space, and the property is very well maintained. The boiler did give out in one apartment but this was immediately fixed. Despite the heat (around 35 C the entire period) the apartments stayed pleasantly cool. We did not even have to use the AC. The pool was also surprisingly large allowing for some laps as well as play. It became the natural center of gravity for the stay.

The owners, Sara and Simonetta, are very pleasant and extremely friendly. They went the extra mile to make our stay and our celebrations the fantastic experience that it was. They are helpful, considerate, and extremely accommodating. Where our planning was not set, they took the initiative and arranged things for the best. Very professional and very good.

Antico Fio offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner by arrangement. Linda, the chef, is very friendly and an excellent cook. She did our brunch and dinner on the day of the celebrations and we were extremely pleased with the menu as well as the quality of the food.

In summary, this was an excellent stay and celebration, made so much better by the staff and the location. If we have to say something negative, it would be that the beds are on the short side for a 6'4" person. Would it stop us from going back? Not by a long shot. In fact, we as well as several of our guests would be happy to do so regularly. We know from friends how complicated and expensive a wedding can be but this was gorgeous and hassle-free thanks to this absolutely magnificent venue and its fantastic owners.

Grazie Karl,

Come dimenticare il ballo sulla terrazza con vista castello, si era creata un'atmosfera unica e così romantica... sembrava di vivere dentro un film...!!!
Vi auguriamo tutto il meglio che si possa desiderare per il vostro futuro.
Vi ricodiamo con affetto.

We stayed in Antico Fio for one week in August 2013 and we loved it! We first spotted it on the internet when searching for wedding venues and fell in love with it! And it was so much better when we saw it in person! We've organised to have our wedding there in August 2014! It's just perfect.
Sara and her family who run the place are so accommodating and very friendly!

There were 5 of us and we stayed in Apartment Rosa which was very spacious, and clean with a large terrace outside.

Grounds and views of rolling countryside and the Poppi Castle in the distance are spectacular. Our 3 bedroom villa was very clean, nicely furnished with an updated kitchen, comfortable beds & beautiful views.The manager was very friendly and helpful in locating nearby restaurants and attractions. I'd recommend it without hesitation.
