BFB's Overview

Il Fontanaro takes the concept of Agriturismo to a whole new level. The 19th century farmhouse has been in the Verdacchi family for over thirty years, first being restored into a country home and organic farm, then being expanded into a luxury farm-stay destination of 5 villas, infinity pools and Umbrian foodie activities. The family is passionate about sharing the pleasures of the good life they have created so families who stay here are in for a treat. Where Umbria and Tuscany blur into the Room With a View landscapes of rolling hills, vivid sunflower fields and glowing sunsets, Il Fontanaro estate is as quintessentially Italian as they come. As a farm, over 2000 olive trees are nurtured to produce one of Umbria’s finest organic olive oils which guests are invited to see being milled and sample at a tasting with the owner Alina. There’s a small vineyard of ancient Sangiovese grapes and Il Fontanaro has an extensive wine cellar were grown-ups can have a tutored tasting of rare vintages. Guests can help themselves to fresh figs, veg and tomatoes, try the owners’ wildflower honey and learn the secrets of Umbrian cooking with Lucia’s courses for adults and fun lessons for children on making perfect pizza or pasta.

Fonte Pace is the latest development for the owners of Il Fontanaro. Set a short distance from the farm, this Umbrian estate has been lovingly restored into a family-friendly villa with saline pool, spacious sun deck and lake views. The house sleeps eight and is perfect for larger groups. It benefits from access to owners cooking classes, olive oil tasting sessions, chef service, concierge and more.

Accommodation Overview - Fonte Pace

Fonte Pace is the first floor of a larger villa which sits on the border of Southern Tuscany with scenic views and a great location within walking distance of a local restaurant. It comprises of three, spacious double bedrooms, one of which can be made up as twin or double room and three full bathrooms. There is a further suite with separate entrance at the front of the house with another double bedroom. It's perfect for accompanying grandparents. Back in the main house there's a fully equipped kitchen (including dishwasher), a dining area and living room with comfortable sofas and satellite TV.

Location Information

The villa is surrounded by iconic Umbrian scenery and there’s plenty for families to see and do, both on the doorstep and for days out. The mediaeval walled village of Paciano nearby is acclaimed as one of the top ten villages in Italy for its idyllic setting and quality of life. The owners of Il Fontanaro have arranged 10% discount in many of the superb local restaurants, including the family favourite for pizza and pasta, L’Oca Braciata.

What do they love about it?

We own and run Il Fontanaro, villa Tartagli and Sunflower Spring place, and here, every guest is treated like a visiting friend.
sharing our slow living and country heritage of food, wine and olive oil is our passion

We provide the type of service that big hotels and guidebooks cannot: booking a table at a little country restaurant, detailing directions to the ruined abbey at the end of an old footpath, and arranging lunch with the small winemaker who will personally walk you through his vineyard.
You can read some examples on our blog: www.umbriatuscanyreview.com

Il Fontanaro offers the perfect base from which to explore the stunning Val di Chiana, Val d’Orcia and the hill towns of southern Tuscany, around Siena, Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano…. and all Umbria (Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Deruta, Spello, Todi…).

This recycled water is then used as needed in the dry season. • Electricity: A substantial portion of their energy needs are generated using solar cell technology .Fontanaro was one of the first in Umbria to make use of this technology. • Heating: Solar panels heat water (in summer) for all domestic purposes.
