FONTANELLA HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a wonderful week in this lovely home. The owners had kindly left many things for us when we arrived, including a nice bottle of wine which was a thoughtful touch. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds wonderfully comfortable. The location is really quiet and we both managed to completely unwind. The owners were very helpful. The villa was very clean and everything that we could have needed was there. We will definitely be returning.

FONTANELLA FARMHOUSE IN UMBRIA

  • 5 of 5
The property exceeded our expectations in its location and facilities and was large enough to comfortably accommodate us as a family (two adults and our two (university age) 'children'). It was very well maintained with a superb pool and fantastic views over the Umbrian Hills. Its setting in a very quiet rural location meant that we had a restful and peaceful holiday. There are many interesting places to visit within easy travelling distance, which makes Fontanella an ideal base for sightseeing; we visited Citta di Castello, Cortona, Assisi, Lake Trasimeno, Umbertide and various small villages dotted around the area. We would have done more but relaxing by the pool in the sunshine was too tempting!

The owners provided very good, discrete service and ensured our stay was enjoyable. Their helpful advice about places to visit and local restaurants meant that we made the most of our time available.

We flew to Forli near Bologna - the journey to the property was an easy drive of less than three hours through some beautiful countryside. We would certainly recommed this property to anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday on the Umbria/Tuscany border.

WHAT A FANTASTIC PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
Please don't book this place in June because we will be going back every year! We had a wonderful time in this clean, well provisioned and Idyllic villa. We were given a warm welcome by the family that own the place. The villa has great facilities and plenty of space, including a brilliant pool and terraces that were always in the sun. For us the scenery and tranquility was second to none and with plenty of lively Italian towns only 30 minutes away for us this was a perfect location.

The pool is set in its own terracing with longers and sun shades.
