Paradise family home in Umbria
We had a great time in your beautiful house, lots of time to rest, great Italian food, excellent wine, everything needed for a splendid holiday. We will recommend your house to all of our friends. Camille and Philippe, Belgium
This is a wonderful house, everything has been done to such exacting standards. For a family with numerous children this was like our own piece of paradise. We loved your colours, your art, your taste, your saucepans, crockery, ironmongery, in fact everything. The stables with all its games and books is a child’s paradise too.

This was the perfect place to spend time with our children, our sisters and their children. We have so much fun in the beautiful pool and the children had a blast in the stables leaving the adults lots of space to enjoy peace and quiet. Cristina, Sergio and Livio have been fantastic, nothing too much trouble, going above and beyond. We hope lots of people enjoy their time here as much as we have and are sad to leave.
Sarah and Dave, London
What a beautiful, comfortable, welcoming home you have created here, we felt very honoured to share it for what seemed all too short a time. You have thought of everything that could make a vacation for a family with lots of children perfect. This is truly a gem of a property and it is clear that much thought and consideration has gone into making it feel both comfortable and luxurious. The new adventure park with the zip wire and tree house were fantastic, for children and adults alike.

Finding a suitable villa in Tuscany/Umbria for a group of 12 people aged from 4 to 75, some with very demanding standards, was probably the hardest task when organising our family reunion. With Podere Fonte Cristiano I chose the ideal property for children, parents, single adults and elderly alike. The location is perfect in beautiful and secluded countryside but 5 minutes from the next village with all amenities you require. It is an absolutely gorgeous property with lots of attention to detail and you can feel the owners built with a lot of love. You feel like somebody added all these personal touches especially for your stay. They have a fabulous collection of art, children and adult books and DVDs. The highlights were definitely the pool and the cinema room as well as the beautiful wine cellar stocked with some of the finest Italian and French wines. The staff was also fantastic. Sergio, the manager, is also a great cook and the children loved making pizza with him. There are also fabulous restaurants very close by. The owners’ favourite, Il Pozetto, is a gem indeed and the quality of food can compare with the best in London, Hong Kong or Mumbai (don’t be fooled by the less inspiring décor). The property is also ideally located to explore southern Tuscany and Umbrian gems like Assisi or Orvieto.
Infinity swimming pool & children's play area below the gardens
We can only recommend this villa, whether you are a group of single adults, a family with children or travelling with elderly, whether you just want to hang out and relax or visit a lot of cultural gems, it is just a perfect place.

Converted farmhouse with stone floors & beamed ceiling features
We spent a fabulous vacation this beautiful villa. The interior décor is at the same time comfortable and beautiful, respectful for the history of this 16th century farmhouse and making it feel modern and light. The staff are wonderful and have looked after us like friends. We will recommend this villa to all our friends.

We have spent several fabulous days at this amazing villa. Having travelled around the world and especially Italy we have not seen a property like this. Beautiful and comfortable at the same time. History and tradition pared with modern art and luxuries. Wonderful gardens and oases of tranquillity whilst offering children a true paradise to play from morning to evening.
