Description: Located on the secondary road to Amelia, on the borderline between Umbria and Latium, "La vecchia fattoria" is an ideal place of peace and relax. The agrotourism overlooks a valley of olive trees, and from the farmhouse you can catch downstream our beautiful, natural pool, surrounded by the green Tiber countryside. Corners of unespected suggestion hide away in the spaces crowning our hill, where you can allow yourself a break enclosed by olive trees, aromatic herbs, vineyards and soft fruits. In "La vecchia fattoria" gastronomy is a real art, made of recipies handed down by generations and grounded on natural products. Our food farming production, based on a strict biological production and scrupulously certified by Bioagricert, is our boast.

Loved this place.... Beautiful scenery.... Fantastic food and staff were amazingly accommodating and helpful..... Cannot praise or thank Marco the owner enough for his help during a family medical emergency that occurred during our stay and we will be forever grateful.

The rooms were basic but clean with everything that you need.... Towels are supplied and there are hairdryer S in the rooms although I would suggest taking two different travel adapted plugs the two pin type only works in certain plugs so I would suggest that you take the thin 3 pin adapters if possible. Usually you are asked if you would like your room cleaned on a daily basis.

Food is amazing would recommend the carbonara.....it is excellent value for money, and drink is reasonably priced too..... Breakfast is a continental type breakfast as you would expect but we asked for omelate and we received omelate.

The pool and the view of the surrounding area are gorgeous and clean and on request marco will supply you with towels for round the pool.

Surrounding area you are about ten minutes from Amelia where there is a supermarket and tabaconist which are very reasonable.... Orte in the other direction I would recommend hiring a car to make travelling around easier.... We flew into Fiumincino airport which was an hours drive to the hotel. Recommend visiting zanchi vineyard a five minute drive away and also Campo Antico a restaurant about a 100mtr walk away from the hotel but be careful of the roads if walking.

All in all other than the medical emergency we had a great time and would visit again and once again would like thank Marco for all of his help.

We heard they have the best desserts in the area. They didn't even have tiramisu . The cheesecake ok. The main courses were good but a bit heavy. We had the Umbrian mixed starter which was not good and also as part of the cheese selection included bad piece of cheddar cheese. The service seemed tired !

Nice place for outside dinner. Great antipasto and the filetto with gorgonzola sauce had the right 'cuisson'. Perfect start.

Not far from the highway, a perfect pit stop from Naples to Tuscany for lunch and a relaxing dip in the pool. And this is in addition to the fantastic food!

Ate lunch here once while visiting Orte. The food was ok, not the best in Orte but not the worst. The view from the restaurant is really nice, so I recommend you eat outside. Two people waited on us, one who spoke really good english and was really friendly and the other one - not so much.
