Wonderful villa, lovely host and superb location. The house was absolutely wonderful, very comfortable, with everything we could want. It is spacious and well furnished; there is plenty of shade in the well kept gardens. The views are amazing! Francesca could not have been more helpful or considerate, and it was a real pleasure to meet her. The location is perfect: very quiet and rural, yet only a 15 minute drive to Assissi or Perugia, with local shops and restaurants even closer. This a truly lovely part of Italy and this is the ideal house to enjoy it in.
Wonderful Home Wonderful Host!! We were nine people, two families of 4 adults and 5 children ages 4-12. Francesca's Villa Casale della Fonte was better than we expected. It is so spacious that we all fit with ease with plenty of room to spare. The home is thoughtfully designed including bug screens on all windows. The air conditioned bedrooms are upstairs as are 3 bathrooms and the laundry room. There is a convenient water closet off the dining room. The main floor is most open and comfortable. There is a living area with large screen tv and about 90 channels. Also a separate sitting area for reading or conversation. We stayed the first week of July and the downstairs remained comfortably cool the entire week. There is more than enough table seating inside and out. 3 large round tables and one rectangle dining room table inside, seating for about 30! Three round tables outside plus two four person square tables under the pool patio. The kitchen is fully equipped including American and Italian coffee makers, two ovens, and plenty of wine openers. Also a full size refrigerator with freezer and automatic ice maker! We enjoyed most of our meals on the back patio looking out to Assisi. Loved the twinkling Assisi at night. How wonderful the views from this Villa! Our favorite part of the home was the fabulous pool! It is very large with plenty of chairs. We were all nine in the pool at the same time, with floats and we were not crowded. The pool was thoughtfully placed so that shade is available somewhere around the pool during all parts of the day. We all enjoyed the foosball and ping pong tables on the patios. There are three patios. Francesca offered us the fruit from the trees on her property. The pool was perfectly clean when we arrived and Francesca sent someone midweek to maintain its cleanliness. We had planned many day trips but found ourselves instead choosing to stay at and enjoy the villa . The small town of Brufa is just a few minutes walk with a bottega and a cafe/bar. Grocery stores and shopping are just a few km away by car. There is no internet or wifi in this home but we didn't miss it. We did have cellular reception for our phones. Francesca was the real gem! She communicated with us very quickly on all correspondence. Her directions to the villa were spot on. Imagine our surprise when we arrived later than planned to find she had prepared for us a welcome basket of goodies for the kids and a few things we might need for breakfast the next morning. She also supplied paper towels, toilet paper, hand and dish soap. A rarity in our past experience with home rentals. Villa Casale della Fonte receives our highest recommendation! If our travels take us back to Umbria we will stay here.
