We stayed on the property and did a cooking class. My wife and I were so pleased with the accommodations, as well as the great time and services with Alina and Lucia. We hope to come back next year!
A beautiful home in a beautiful setting made even better thanks to the wonderful, welcoming family that owns the property and went the extra mile to make sure we got to know the entire area -- with advice on restaurants and wine tastings and shopping -- Could not have been better for us.

I have written a longer review on the main Il Fontanaro trip advisor website, but in essence, this place is just perfect. The hospitality is second to none, the location beautiful and, in particular if you are travelling with young children or if you want to relax and really have your own space, this is the place to do it with no stress at all. We only stayed 3 nights which was a complete error and wish we'd stayed for weeks. It is a bit further than some other places to travel to some of the big Tuscan destinations (Siena, Montepulciano etc) but it is only 30min and well worth it for the hosts and surrounds. You are close to Perugia and Cortona which we loved. The apartments are not done up to some luxurious, latest-trend 5 star standard but this isn't what you want (we stayed at some of these places too and they sorely dulled in comparison). It is just clean and beautiful and feels like a home you can relax in. We loved in particular this apartment as we had our own little outside garden and tables to sit and enjoy dinner, wine, meals. All within earshot of the bedroom in case our little one was sleeping. (Although if you do have young kids, you can bring a monitor, and still be in range around parts of the wider property). A great walk into the town and phenomenal suggestions from the hosts for places to visit and try. Nice pool, hot tub, hammocks, stunning gardens. One of the best holidays we've ever had and ensuring friends have it on their list of places not to miss.
