Stayed in this wonderfully atmospheric C18th farmhouse in June 2014 whilst exploring the area photographically. Giovanni, Elizabetta and Paolo were extremely welcoming and Elizabetta worked so hard to provide fabulous home-cooked food for breakfast and dinner. Hat's off to her - does she ever sleep?
I was a bit shell-shocked initially as it was so quiet and peaceful and there is no TV etc in the rooms. But after a couple of days, I'd totally adjusted (sneaked the TV in via the downloads on my IPad) and had some of the best quality sleep I've experienced in years. It is such a charming place.
The whole area is so beautiful and it is a perfect base to explore Monte Sibilini and surroundings. I cannot wait to return to this stunning part of Italy.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- As the owners and managers of FonteAntica we aim to fully express the spirit of enthusiasm we have for hospitality and the love that we have for our region and our land. In 2008 we opened the doors of our house to guests so that they might discover the roots that we have laid down here; it was, for us, a dream come true. The 18h century house has been fully renovated, carefully preserving the original features of the house as far as possible. This care has also been taken with each of our ten ensuite rooms (two of which are fully accessible for the disabled). The rooms have been restored using the best of materials and are furnished with original 18th and 19th century pieces, guaranteeing both your utmost comfort and the most authentic atmosphere possible. Our cooking is 100% Umbrian, made using our own genuine home produce along with other carefully selected local produce. We serve a fixed menu and the dining area is reserved exclusively for our house-guests. A hearty buffet breakfast of homemade dishes awaits you in the morning to get your day off to a good start. In the large park outside you will be immersed in the lush Umbrian vegetation, where the only noises you'll hear are the twitter of birds and the sound of water coming up from the spring. We offer our guests a wide range of services and activities. Indoors there is a reading room with a fireplace, a billiard table, table top football, darts and board games. While outdoors there are mountain bikes, a ping pong table, a children's play area, archery and an area to play the Italian equivalent of boules: Bocce. We can organise courses for those interested in cookery, Norcineria (the preparation of local cured meets and cheeses) and how to find truffles. We can also organise hill walking trips, walking trips with mules, pony trekking, mountain biking, tasting events, evenings and weekends with a theme, murder mystery dinners, hen and stag parties and small receptions as well as team building and motivational activities such as (rafting, obstacle courses, archery, Nordic Walking and walking with snowshoes). It's the ideal place for groups of friends, families with children and couples in search of some quality time together. ... more less
