Outstanding accommodation and countryside
This was our first visit to Umbria and we didn't know what to expect. We were delighted with our choice of La Fontanina, it couldn't have been better. We completely relaxed with the warm welcome, lovely weather and the tranquility of the stunning countryside. The cottage was all we needed, comfortable and exceptionally clean. Many thanks to Anne and Giancarlo.
Gently rolling hills and total peace
The cottage although compact is very well presented and beautifully clean, everything was in good working order. There are numerous shady seating areas throughout the grounds. The pool was always spotlessly clean. Anne and GianCarlo were friendly but discreet. Very good value for money and in many ways a perfect holiday.
Thanks for your review and for taking the time to write it. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Emma
La Fontanina is an amazing property - immaculate and beautifully maintained.
My husband and I spent a wonderful week at La Fontanina. We visited Assisi, Perugia, Gubbio, Montone and Citta del Castello but were always glad to return 'home'!! It was extremely hot during our stay and we were very glad of the air conditioning and the pool. We thoroughly enjoyed food at La Locanda di Nona Gelsa and wine tasting at Ristorante I Girasoli di Sant' Andrea, both of which are not far from La Fontanina. Ann and her husband, who own the property, are delightful hosts. The property is high up and the views of the Umbrian landscape are amazing.
Dear Hilary, we are grateful for your review and very happy that you enjoyed your stay.
Excellent property which meets all your requirements: clean and well equipped House, superior garden with a pool.
Perfect in every way
We had 2 wonderful weeks at La Fontanina. What a beautiful country, friendly people and fabulous food! Giancarlo and Anne, were a lovely, kind couple. The villa was perfect in every way, gardens, pool, views, peace!
Stunning property lacking nothing.
We absolutely adored La Fontanina; the property is stunning and wants for nothing inside and the location is superb. Ann and her husband were perfect hosts, there to help when needed and very much invisible when we were around the villa. We will be back either next year or 2018!
Why I don't take payment through this website:
I have been renting houses in the area of Italy in which I live for more than 25 years, using my own website at Gorgacce Rentals and many other listing websites such as Trpadvisor, etc. I have been renting on Owners Direct/HomeAway/VRBO/Homelidays/Arbitrel (all now owned by Expedia) since these websites existed. In 2016 they fell under the umbrella of Expedia and there have been big changes since. Although I still pay them handsomely to list all my houses on their website, they now also charge a "service fee" to all guests. For each booking paid for through their website they also take a 3% surcharge from my rental. In order for me to keep prices down I take my own payments; bank transfer, credit card or UK cheque to my UK registered company. Please feel free to phone me if you want to discuss this or any other matter related to the rental.
