A group of us stayed at Fonte Cicerum, a large villa on Alina and Lucia's stunning property in/near Paciano, Umbria. The villa is charming, comfortable and clean, and situated. There are beautiful views in all directions, and plenty to explore in the area. The nearest city is Perugia (about 45 minute away), but there are a number of towns closer...

We love staying at Il Fontinaro. Alina is a gracious host. The little touches like home- made olive oil or honey are so nice. Our favorite villa is Brunello followed by Sagrantino. It's a beautiful place.

Our stay at Fontanaro was marvelous. Our villa (Sangiovese) was very comfortable and beautifully furnished, including some complementary food to get us started. The view is gorgeous, and the village of Paciano is within walking distance and very charming. Lucia and her family are gracious hosts with deep roots in the area. Highly recommended!

This is a superb getaway hosted by a family with deep roots in Umbria and more. The accommodations are great with kitchens stocked with food, nice fireplaces, Internet and if you want cable TV. But .... it's Mama Lucia , daughter Alina and the staff that make your stay wonderful. Alina and Lucia know everyone and every place in Umbria...

Our stay with another couple at Sagrantino couldn't have been better. The 2 bedroom/2 bath rental was well cared for and spotlessly clean. Everything had been considered from a few basic groceries at our arrival to help with planning our daily itinerary. The outdoor space had breath taking views and we enjoyed the pool. The villa is within walking distance...

There were 8 of us - we stayed in Fonte Cicerum which is a beautifully equipped "villa" (house) about 10 minute walk to the main house (Il Fontanaro). Early October, the pool was pretty chilly!! The remarkable thing about this setup is that you have perfect freedom to do whatever you want during the day, but if you have any...

My husband and I have a apartment in Paciano and visited Italy with our family this October. They stayed at the Villa Sangrantino. Their accommodations were absolutely beautiful. Alina and Lucia were so kind and thoughtful to our family which made our trip memorable. The views were spectacular!

Frantoia, the one bedroom apartment we stayed at on Fontanaro Farm was idyllic. Fantastic views of the Italian countryside around the beautiful town of Paciano. Very well outfitted. Excellent salt water pool. Really enjoyed the cooking class and meeting all the other attendees. Loved the tour of the olive groves. Lucia and Alina and Giovanni are just wonderful warm and...

We enjoyed four days in the Tignanello villa (we'll stay longer next time). We had a private patio with hammock, overlooking the countryside and surrounded by fields of sunflowers. We could view Paciano, a nearby hillside town, through our bedroom window. We comfortably took day trips to Montalcino, Pienza, and Siena, and still had time to relax and enjoy the...
