Located in Umbria, the greenest Italian region on its border with Tuscany, thought many to be the best of both region. Paciano, Umbria is a small medieval village on the edge of a park overlooking the south shore of Trasimeno Lake (400 meters above see level). Paciano is ranked by European Community as one of the top ten 'ideal villages' in Italy for the overall positive quality of life. It is also an ideal center for sightseeing trips to countless cultural points of interest in Umbria and Tuscany.
The village is located approximately six miles from Chiusi Railways Station. From the train station in Chiusi.

The wine town of Montepulciano is a 30 minute drive, while Montalcino and the Chianti area are a 45 minute drive.

THE BEST PLACE OF MY LIFE
I wish to be a billionair to buy one of the villas they rent. It is a paradise. Infinity swimming pool, maxy jacuzzi, wine lounge, wine and travel library, cooking and wiine classes, fantastic hosts that help you to arrange all visit. Free wifi, tvlcd, printer, gps, all to feel really at home! I will be back! I think that the best house is the frantoio with the sunset view, but all are really nice!

my first holiday in italy
my first holiday in italy
When i came to Italy for the first time I stayed at Fontanaro. Here I was able to enjoy the country side of Italy, which was much calmer then staying in a major city such as Florence or Rome. Even though I didn't stay in a major city I was still able to see them because Fontanaro is only ten minutes from the train station in which I was able to travel all over Italy. Here the hospitality was amazing the best I have ever had anywhere I have stayed. Also the food was amazing because it is all natural, and here on the property there is an organic garden that is used in all the food. Also every night in town there is something going on' such as on the first night I was here I saw a Russian ballet. Even on the property there are many things to do such as the swimming pool. All the rooms are kept very clean and mine even had its own kitchen. I would recommend staying here to anyone.

All you can desire to fully experience the Italian country side...great location with beautiful views of rolling hills but also close to anything Umbria and Tuscany have to offer, quiet and relaxing, spacious rooms, clean and well mantained house with modern amenities and impeccable hospitality (the owners speak fluent english), huge infinity pool, wine cellar, manicured garden...and more! Went there with my wife, can't wait to go back with the kids! Tip: Don't miss the nearby outlet mall of high end italian fashion brands (Prada among others).

Why the Owner Chose Paciano:
We own and run Il Fontanaro, villa Tartagli and Sunflower Spring place, and here, every guest is treated like a visiting friend. sharing our slow living and country heritage of food, wine and olive oil is our passion
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
We provide the type of service that big hotels and guidebooks cannot: booking a table at a little country restaurant, detailing directions to the ruined abbey at the end of an old footpath, and arranging lunch with the small winemaker who will personally walk you through his vineyard. You can read some examples on our blog: www.umbriatuscanyreview.com Il Fontanaro offers the perfect base from which to explore the stunning Val di Chiana, Val d’Orcia and the hill towns of southern Tuscany, around Siena, Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano…. and all Umbria (Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Deruta, Spello, Todi…).
