KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Set in the rolling hills of Northern Umbria, close to the Tuscany border, Fontefaggio is a beautifully restored 16th century country house with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. The villa sits in grounds of approximately three acres and retains many original features including chestnut beams, exposed stone walls and internal brick archways, flag stone floors/ceilings, some of which are of historical importance.
The house has a very luxurious feel with marble flooring throughout, granite work surfaces in the kitchen and limestone in the bathrooms. Fontefaggio also contains many original oil paintings and Persian rugs. Total restoration was completed in 2007.
Although the villa has a secluded feel, the quiet village of Fratticiola Selvatica is within walking distance at just under 1km away. In the centre of Fratticiola there is a small supermarket with adjacent bar that is well stocked with local produce. There are two additional bars in town, a butcher and a baker. Although there are no restaurants within walking distance of the house there are some excellent restaurants within a 10 to 15 drive. Alternatively, although you may feel it difficult to tear yourself away from such a great kitchen, with notice it is possible to arrange for a cook to come in and prepare meals.
The towns of Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Urbino, Arezzo, Cortona, Todi, Siena and Spoleto are easily accessible by car. The Adriatic coast, with some marvellous beaches, is about 1 hour 40 minutes away and Rome is about 2 hours.
Ryanair now flies to Perugia. Ancona airport is good/efficient and the road from Ancona to Perugia quite good. Of course, you can also fly to Bologna/Forli, Florence, Pisa or Rome.
