“idyllic villa for family trip!”
Reviewed July 23, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at Casa Fontanelle for 2 wonderful weeks in June. It was perfect for our group of 7 adults and 4 kids (ages 6 months to 4.5 years). First of all, Graham was extremely helpful in helping us book our flights, rental cars and train tickets - he even went above and beyond by helping us book flights from Rome to Romania and train tickets in Italy following the villa stay. He is also very responsive to questions and very accommodating (i.e. making sure the house was stocked with a baby monitor and some extra groceries for the kids). The house itself is beautiful and had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. The kids spent hours in the heated pool which is surrounded by a beautifully landscaped yard lush with lavender and other pleasant smelling plants. Fields of vibrant sunflowers surround the villa and came into full bloom during our stay. We enjoyed the location of the villa, which is a few km from Spina (a quaint little town with an excellent pizzeria and a tiny but very nice winery -- go see Moreno at Cantina la Spina!) and a few more kms away from a larger village of Marschiano (Be Happy Cafe is an excellent gourmet restaurant there). The immediate area isn't very touristy and we enjoyed that! However, many day trips are just an hour or so away. During our stay we visited Todi, Assisi, Lago Trasimeno, Montefalco, and the Marmore waterfalls. The neighbor, Laura, cooked dinner for us 4 times. Every multi-course meal was absolutely delicious and we had leftovers for lunch and dinner the next day. The local managers, Tony and Karen, were very nice and helpful as well. Wonderful stay! We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!

“Great accommodation with superb views.”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Stunning Umbrian farmhouse with six double bedrooms and four bathrooms. Superb infinity pool set in sizeable gardens with olive trees, cypress trees and laurel bushes. ideal location for exploring Umbria or even going to Tuscany to see Florence or south to visit Rome. Whilst it is not within walking distance to any local village, it is only a 5 minute drive into Spina to purchase provisions. A well stocked kitchen means that it is is just as easy to cook (or bbq) as it is to go to eat out. A host of wonderful Italian restaurants or family run pizzerias are only a short drive away. The sunsets and early morning sunrises over misty valleys more than makes up for the feeling of remoteness in the farmhouse although privacy is one of the reasons we returned here; to experience the 'big sky' country of Italy.

“Felt like home”
Reviewed July 30, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

The purpose of going to Umbria and staying for a month was to experience being a temporary resident. Casa Fontanelle was the perfect place to stay for that. The fields all around the Casa were breathtaking but yet the house is nicely secluded. The pool was fantastic. All of the bedrooms are spacious and the linen and towels provided are of high quality.
Graham was particularly helpful with just about everything from arranging our first couple of night's dinners to making reservations for the Agriturisimo meal. There was an issue with the internet, but Graham went above and beyond to get the issue resolved. We appreciated everything he did. We particularly enjoyed our "welcome basket" which even included 2 bottles of wine and beer!
The pictures posted are very accurate with some things being even better than the pictures. There were things that could have made the Casa even better such as screens on all the bedroom windows. It was quite warm while we were there and not being able to open the bedroom windows for sleeping at night was most unpleasant. There could have been fans in both the dining room and TV room. Also, better lighting in the dining room would have been appreciated. In spite of these things our group had a wonderful time and really felt at home. The kitchen is great for several people to cook at the same time. Many wonderful meals were enjoyed at the large dining table.
