We had an amazing time at L'Antica Sorgente, so much so we are discussing going back next year.

Highly Recommended

Having stayed here with family and friends in early October, I would highly recommend this handsomely restored farmhouse. The house is beautifully furnished and well equipped, and the views from the terrace across the serene Umbrian countryside are superb. The perfect spot for sundowners after long walks in the surrounding hills.

Spacious and Well Appointed

This is a fantastic place to relax and unwind. A group of us stayed for a week. We took full advantage of the beautiful views of the surrounding mountains, and the terrace where you can have meals while the sun sets.

The nearby villages have a stunning Cathedral and delicious restaurants respectively, with winding streets and lots of sun-faded Italian terracotta. We spent a few evenings having dinner and gelato with the Perugian locals!

The house is very spacious and well appointed and the bedrooms are clean and comfortable with ensuite bathrooms and high ceilings with authentic Italian shutters. The pool is a good size (some of the more energetic enjoyed their morning lengths!) and a great place to lie in the sun as it is set in the lush gardens, where the lemon thyme grows along the path.

I had a truly wonderful holiday here. It is a very special place, with everything you need for a wonderful Perugian experience. Highly recommended.
