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.

The heart of Il Fontanaro is the owners’ fine stone farmhouse and two separate luxury villas set amongst grassy lawns, shady trees slung with hammocks, scenty English roses, seasonal fruit and vegetables. Tartagli is the latest development for the owners of Il Fontanaro, comprising 3 luxury apartments for 2, 4 or 6 people and a 14m x 6m infinity swimming pool, surrounded by olive groves between the farm and the village of Paciano. The apartments have been magnificently finished in the traditional Umbrian style of cosy colours, raftered ceilings and antique furnishings, plus all mod cons include Sky TV, Wi Fi, IPod speaker and air con. The apartments have well equipped kitchens, modern bathrooms, large living areas and spacious bedrooms, plus 100’s of toys and helpful baby equipment make them ideal for families to experience the best of Umbria in comfort and style.

Location Information

Il Fontanaro 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 medieval walled village of Paciano is under a mile away, 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. There are more shops in the small town of Chiusi Chianciano (7 miles) and Cortona (16 miles) plus the buzzing Umbrian capital, Perugia is only half an hour’s drive (22 miles). Montepulciano (19 miles) has a fab market on the second weekend of the month and this historic hill town is also world famous for its fine red wines.

Assisi (29 miles) is one of the region’s biggest tourist destinations, thanks to the magnificent basilica, but families might prefer to escape the hoards and head for the beaches, watersports and cruises at Lake Trasimeno (6 miles).

There is also a ‘Go-Ape’ style forest adventure park at Rapolano Terme, under an hour’s drive away and dinosaur fanatics will enjoy the Paleontological Museum at Pietrafitta, near Lake Trasimeno.

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…).
