Perfection

We had high hopes for our stay in Fonticchio di Sopra, and our expectations were surpassed in every way. The house is simply stunning! I will never forget the first time I looked out across the hills from the pool terrace; I am fortunate to have visited many renowned places, but the view there is utterly remarkable. I would have to say that it is the best I have ever seen.We live in a rural part of England and enjoy a tranquil environment, but at Fonticchio there was literally no man made noise to intrude upon the feeling of truly splendid isolation.Within the house, the room layouts were perfect. The outdoor dining area had most use, although we did use the garden room, and the kitchen bench too. The loggia was a great place to sit and enjoy a drink right at the end of the night, and we had a few evenings using the pool table.All of the bedrooms were extremely comfortable – good sizes, and the bathrooms were great. I even had a need to use the library for a day’s urgent work, and found it a very comfortable and effective place to make calls and write my documents.My brother, who is a designer, was very pleased by the high quality furnishings (as was I, but he knew the names of the chairs and sofas). The property is described as “finished to the highest quality inside and out” but I think it would be completely legitimate to find an even more superlative expression! The property is a clear attempt to reach perfection, and in my opinion, it has achieved the aim.Lastly, before we booked, I swapped mails with Emma about our potential concerns that there would not be enough to keep our youngest nephew fully occupied. These worries were proved to be completely unfounded. As suggested we took a trip to Perugia, which was wonderful. Then 2 trips to Lake Trasimeno – including lunch on the Island at Da Sauro which was very good, to Montepulciano (stunning), Bagno Vignoni (beautiful) , Siena and Gubbio. Travelling was very easy (although I was very pleased that the car had satnav!)

Stunning Property

Fonticchio di Sopra is a stunning property in a fabulous location. It is extremely comfortable and catered for all our needs, we loved the outside sitting area at the back of the house, great for evening drinks and the infinity pool has unforgettable views. It would be hard to find a better property at the price, I am already thinking about booking it again next year.
