Wunderful La Fontana
We spent two wonderful weeks at La Fontana with our two adult children. The house is special and we felt very comfortable.
The kitchen is well-equipped and one can enjoy a big selection of books. The big garden and the pool surrounded with old olive trees were a delight and perfect to rest from some long hikes in the mornings.
The housekeepers Eka and Fausto were such nice people who took care that we have a good time. Philip the owner was very kind and responsive and his detailed recommendations were helpful to find the best groceries and some great restaurants.
Even though the house is so near to the charming little town Amelia it is very quiet and you feel like far out in nature. The Architecture is perfect for a Family or group of friends to spend time together and at the same time having private space where every room has a separate door to the garden.
We visit Umbria since many years and realized that there are so many more charming places to discover in this part of Umbria.
This place is to be recommended and we will hopefully come back again!
Thank you very much for your kind review Franziska. We do so appreciate people who enjoy this house and would be delighted to see you again.
Philip Eka and the team.
We just spent 9 days in La Fontana and we loved it. The house is really nice and very well located in the middle of olive trees 5 minutes from Amelia. Beautifull settings and very good comfort.
Thank you very much
Our holiday at La Fontana
We spent a special holiday with our four grown up children (Left the grandkids and partners at home). This was the perfect setting for an intimate family holiday. The house and surroundings are gorgeous; we were reluctant to leave the beautiful old place, and enjoyed the homely ambience. The problem was lack of time to read through the walls of wonderful books and listen to the large selection of music. We bought fresh local produce during our daily travels, local wine and cheese and cooked many delicious meals in the comfortable well-equiped kitchen.
I would not recommend it to anyone with dificulty managing steep stairs.
The trees were in bloom and the wisteria creeper at its best.
We were met by the pleasant housekeeper and found the house well kept and clean. We used the hammocks under the trees. Amelia is close by and a gem of a town. You need a car to get around.
Philip the owner, provided us with lots of useful information prior to the trip. We would recommend this lovely old farmhouse to families visiting Umbria and wanting a quiet and peaceful surroundings.
Thank you very much
La Fontanna/ Umbria
My family and I spent a wonderful week in Umbria at La Fontanna. My 3 daughters and husbands stayed in the main house and my wife and I slept in the adjacent cottage. We bought the fresh local produce, cheeses and wine and had several enjoyable meals outside overlooking the incredible vistas. We did venture out for some short day trips like the excellent local Zanchi winery, but in general we got to know Amelia over our short week there. What a gem. The people were wonderful, helpful and friendly, despite our massacre of of their language. The local cathedrals were gorgeous and we got to know the cheese lady well with a visit there every other day. I can't think of much to say in a negative light about our stay there. If there had been functional screens on the windows we might have slept with open windows and enjoyed the cool evenings more. Aside from that one small thing, no complaints. We would go back in a heartbeat. What a beautiful place.
Thank you so much. Fausto and Eka put a lot of effort into making sure our guests are happy. They will feel so appreciated. And yes we will place screens on the windows. Thank you again for your constructive comments.
Wonderful stay in Amelia & Umbria
Quaint and cozy - not luxury but definitely a unique and absolutely gorgeous and peaceful location. The house is historic and interesting, very comfortable. We (6 of us) made several dinners in the kitchen that was fully appointed. Beautiful views from every window! The smells of the Lavender and Rosemary and cedar were intoxicating. Great location and setting. We made day trips to Firenze, Assisi, Cortana - a car is needed. Amelia is a nice village/town. Owner was great to work with and very responsive to questions Highly recommend!!
Thank you very much. Glad you enjoyed the house.
Amazing and Spectacular!
Briefly, we had an amazing time and everything was spectacular. What a beautiful home. We were so happy to have been able to enjoy it. I will send more comments when we are home but overall very positive. This a superb home for a family. Every room has access to the garden so even in the off season you are able to be independent and wander around the beautiful grounds filled with lavender and olive trees. The house is spotless and beautifully furnished. Everything is so authentic. The small town of Amelia is a charming hill town only a 35 minute train ride from Rome and a 20 minute train ride to Orvieto. We were in a serene place off the beaten track and it was a great home base for all of our adventures. Pam M. Portland OR
Thank you so much.
Amelia er placeret på bølgende bakker, grænser mod nord ved tyk skov og i syd ved olivenlunde og vinmarker. Væggene stammer fra den før-etruskiske periode (2000 f.Kr.), mens byen har opretholdt sin middelalderlige plan uden væsentlig ændring i århundreder. Det er blevet sagt at Amelia er den ældste bevarede bosættelse på den italienske halvø og har mange lag af civilisation. Fra den romerske periode er de mest slående hvilesteder de gamle cisterne og statuen af Germanico. Byens folk er charmerende, og der er nogle gode restauranter, der serverer typisk umbrisk mad. Vinproducenter er rundt omkring, og det er sjovt at gå rundt i den lokale Cantine. Vi har nogle fantastiske vinproducenter i nærheden i Montecchio, [Falesco], i Amelia, Colli Amerini, [Carbio] og Castello delle Regine. En kort køretur væk er de fantastiske vinmarker Montefalco, som har nogle af de bedste vine i Italien, herunder den prisvindende Arnaldo Caprai, Sagrantino. Det samme kan gøres for olivenolie, den lokale produktion er den bedste i Italien. Høstperioden er normalt midt i november. Vi producerer vores egen olivenolie af høj kvalitet, fra 200 sjældne oliventræer af Rajo-sorten. Mange af vores træer er næsten 200 år gamle. Du kan deltage i vores olivenhøst og nyde en traditionel umbrisk godbid med god olivenolie, bruschetta, god vin og mad efter en dag med at træne i træerne!
