Casa Fontana has fantastic views over the Po valley and is set on a hillside toward the end of an exhilarating drive from the nearby small town of Bagnolo. A traditional farmhouse yet sympathetically well modernised to a very high standard with all conveniences. From the location there are endless day trips to be had to places of interest, where the real Italy and real Italian food with the natural hospitality can be discovered, from trips into the Alps, to the centre of Turin or to superb medieval towns and villages.
Myself and two friends visited this Italian house last summer, and it did not dissapoint! The house itself was beautiful and spacious with fabulous views from up in the hills. While we loved the peace and quiet of the property, a trip into Turin is very easy and we'll worth it. The highlight of the holiday for me was sitting outside on the large garden table and watching the sunset with dinner every night. I could not recommend this place highly enough and will 100% be back next summer.
Everything about Casa Fontana was all we hoped for. The location is superb in an elevated position with wonderful views over the surrounding woodlands to the plain beyond. Before arriving, we wondered whether the house might be isolated but it is only a short drive down to the local villages and within easy travelling distance of the surrounding towns and valleys.
The house has been beautifully restored with great attention to detail. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, the lounge and bedrooms were comfortable and the bathrooms were well fitted. Outside, the gardens and woodlands were well maintained and tidy and the patio had loungers and a table and chairs.
We will definitely recommend Casa Fontana to friends.
